    What a mess over at American Idol's judging panel. It's a real house cleaning! At the end of last week, reports were buzzing that Jennifer Lopez and Aerosmith singer Steven Tyler were joining the judge's table, with Ellen DeGeneres exiting of her own accord and Kara DioGuardi, a judge for two seasons, reportedly being fired. Perhaps all of this drama, which occurs in the wake of fan favorite Simon Cowell leaving the show, will boost the show's recently sagging ratings? I waited to collect all the rumors – which included Elton John, Justin Timberlake and Jessica Simpson in the running for the judging job- before commenting on the future of the show.

    I am still rooting for Howard Stern to join the series. It needs an honest, critical voice to replace Cowell, who was neither shy nor gentle with his comments. He was brutal and real and that is a rare quality to find in a judge. All the other judges played good cop to his bad cop. The show needs the honest bad cop, someone who doesn't care about dashing someone's dreams for the sake of being honest about a contestant's talent. Or lack thereof. And that's Stern.

    Do you care about all this drama? Who do you think should host?
