Howie Mandel Is Returning to "America's Got Talent"


is coming back to do another season of "America's Got Talent".  He joins HOWARD STERN, who previously said he'd be back.

It's still unclear who will replace SHARON OSBOURNE, who ISN'T coming back.  There's talk out there that it could be ROSIE O'DONNELL or CARMEN ELECTRA, but those are just rumors at this point.

Howie joked, "I heard Carmen Electra was.  I don't know if she was doing the show, I heard she might have been doing SIMON [COWELL]."  (Simon recently admitted he's "been on some dates" with Carmen.)
