Howie Mandel Set to Judge ‘America's Got Talent’

The “Deal or No Deal” host will join Sharon Osbourne and Morgan Piers on the NBC summer hit

NBC has made a deal with "Deal or No Deal" host Howie Mandel to replace David Hasselhoff as a judge on "America's Got Talent."

Sharon Osbourne and Piers Morgan will also be back, as will host Nick Cannon. NBC alternative chief Paul Telegdy made the announcement Sunday.

Mandel's hosting gig is part of a first-look deal deal he and his Alevey Productions have with the Peacock. "Deal or No Deal" is not currently on NBC but is in syndication.

Mandel is “passionate about new talent and his years of experience across a variety of disciplines in entertainment, not to mention the fact that he headlines and performs in Vegas all the time, will bring new depth to our panel," Telegdy said. "He will be a real asset to our contestants and help them take their talents to the next level.”
