I don’t know about you, but who else could possibly fill the seat of American Idol’s most brutally honest judge Simon Cowell? Apparently, Fox is searching for its next best thing.

It appears that Fox has already began searching for its next “American Idol” judge to fill the shoes of brutally critical judge, Simon Cowell. A source commented that “the search has just begun, nor are there any front-runners at this time,” in addition, “nobody’s going to be offered a job [as a permanent Idol judge] for a while.” Fair enough. This doesn’t seem like such an easy task, now does it. However, it is said that they are doing an extensive search for the right candidate. It has not yet been confirmed by Stern’s camp.

According to reports, it is said that Stern currently has an amazing contract with Sirius XM Radio, and his contract will supposedly end later this year. Could this be a business scheme to renew a much bigger contract with Sirius for the radio jock? Who knows. What I do know is that he has apparently turned down a television opportunity but did not give any details as to what it involved.

On Stern’s show, he stated, “I was approached by a major TV network to take over a TV show and leave here and do that next year — and I did turn it down … I’m not even sure if I want to be working. I’m waiting to see what happens.”

Sources also say, “It’s one of the few shows that could compete with Stern’s $100 million-a-year Sirius contract [which expires this year], and Idol bosses think he’d be even nastier than Simon,” adding that, “They know he would be great TV and would clash with the other judges, such as Ellen DeGeneres, and the contestants. Idol will do what it takes to sign him.”

Gosh, I can’t imagine anyone else, other than Simon, to play the part. We’ll just have to wait and see. Who do you think is the next American Idol judge?
