Howard Stern may not be leaving the syndicated late-night arena after
all.

The controversial radio and TV personality, whose three-year-old syndicated
series The Howard Stern Radio Show will end its run on Saturday night
(Nov. 17), is developing a potential replacement sitcom for the CBS
owned-and-operated stations.

Stern and King World Productions are developing a syndicated sitcom based
around an off-the-wall Southern family.

Stern is set to be an executive producer on the comedy project coined,
Kane.

The CBS owned-and-operated stations are said to be on board, but there's no
pilot yet and a date has not been set for its debut.

CBS and King World executives would only confirm the project was in
development.

The CBS O-and-O's helped launch The Howard Stern Radio Show
in syndication in 1998 and are pulling the series this weekend due to low ratings. - Joe Schlosser
