Sure, his only experience as a judge of talent has been squeezing bikini-clad bimbos' backsides on his radio show, but we're sure Howard Stern will make a terrific judge on America's Got Talent. NBC on Thursday said the schlock jock will join the show's seventh seasonwhich will air live from New York sometime in the Summer of 2012

"Howard Stern's larger-than-life personality will bring a thrilling new dynamic to" the show, NBC suit Paul Telegdy said. "He's a proven innovator."

(Not so thrilled about Stern is the Parents TV Council, which has just released a most stern objection to Stern's off-color sex banter).

The bikini-lover is pumped for his arbiter's gig. "I take judging very seriously," he said on his show.

"In order to up my credibility, I will wear a suit."
