Howard Stern recently announced that he will be taking Piers Morgan’s place on the NBC hit reality show “America’s Got Talent”– and the mommas and the poppas are none too happy about this news.

The Parents Television Council released a statement today calling NBC’s decision to hire Stern “an act of desperation” and that the radio personality “is synonymous with shock, profanity and obscenity.”

And just to make sure they get in one last dig at the “Private Parts” star, the statement concludes: “The once-proud broadcast network has lost its way and has made it clear it holds no concern whatsoever for children and families.”

Oh snap! Hide yo’ kids, hide yo’ wife, and hide yo’ obscene programming, cuz Howard Stern is gonna be judgin’ errbody’s talent out there.
