Nick Cannon announced a couple of weeks ago that he will NOT be returning as the host of America’s Got Talent because some executives at NBC allegedly threatened to fire Nick from the show after he made a racial joke about NBC in his recent Showtime stand-up special “Stand Up, Don’t Shoot.”
Howie Mendel, who is 1 of 4 judges on AGT, was on The View where he talked about how he really wants Nick to come back to the show. Howie said,
“Nick, say it ain’t so. Please come back to work. I think he’s the best host on television. Nick, the show will not be as good without you. You’ve got to come back.”
Howie was also spotted at LAX on Sunday where he told TMZ pretty much the same thing.
