Larry King is leaving his CNN show after 25 years of hard hitting interviews with the likes of Anna Nicole Smith, Donald Trump, and Corey Feldman. And now that Piers Morgan of America's Got Talent has been announced as his replacement, everyone is offering their ten cents about how to follow in Larry's footsteps. And who gives better advice than Howard Stern!
Stern, who had previously been rumored as a possible replacement for King and for Simon Cowell on American Idol, told Vulture what he thinks should change about the CNN show: "Well, the first thing I would do is take a big, giant picture of Larry and throw it in the garbage. Then I’d go from there. I’d probably have Larry’s wife on, with the sister. That would be my first guest. And have provocative details of every disgusting sexual position Larry put them in. Can you imagine? Can you imagine Larry on top of you?...You’d give up being a woman. I thank God every day I’m not a woman because I’m afraid Larry King would get on top of me."
If you detect any animosity there, well, Stern and King are currently in a bit of a tiff. King was asked in an interview what he thought about the possibility of Stern replacing him, to which he responded, "No, I wouldn't want to be compared to Howard Stern...You go to the least common denominator and that's Howard Stern. I regard Howard Stern as worthless." Stern wasn't too happy when he heard that, called him a "fucking ass" on his show, and later saying, "It's alleged he was banging his wife's sister and he's saying that I'm tasteless? He's a frog...an imp and he's the luckiest man in show business." You can see a video of Stern impersonating King below.
