Howard Stern has proven that the Parents Television Council's concern about his "America's Got Talent" gig was too much. The radio personality made his promise by behaving himself during his first appearance on the show.

Giving critical yet compassionate comments to the contestants, Stern even got nice reviews about his judging stint. "I forgot how much I love Howard Stern," one viewer tweeted, while another added, "Never was a fan of Howard Stern but gotta say I'm loving him on the show."

Ken Tucker of Entertainment Weekly said "Stern was, for the most part, perfectly fine." Meanwhile, Robert Lloyd of Los Angeles Times wrote that the shock-jock "has shown himself perfectly capable of good behavior on other people's turf."

Still being himself, Stern told a stripping magician on the show's season premiere, "As a stripper you can't have man-boobs." He, however, managed to insert a joke when responding to a terrible singer's revelation that his parents were dead. "They died of embarrassment?" he quipped.

Best imitation of Big Bird on acid I have ever seen. Wow! What a train wreck.

Total train wreck. Stern looks like a tranny version of Big Bird. Horrible show. They were all dressed in black. Thought it was funeral runway review.
