Subscribe to Howard Stern alerts

Shock jock Howard Stern has settled a lawsuit against the bosses of TV show ARE YOU HOT? THE SEARCH FOR AMERICA'S SEXIEST PEOPLE, which he claimed was based on an idea stolen from his radio show.

The two-page dismissal notice on the suit was filed Thursday (07AUG03) in LOS ANGELES SUPERIOR COURT. Terms were not disclosed.

Stern sued TV network ABC and TELEPICTURES PRODUCTIONS in March (03), claiming Are You Hot? was derived from a segment on his syndicated radio show called THE EVALUATORS. In the segment, Stern and three panellists comment frankly on contestants' physical attributes, rating them on their worthiness to appear in various men's magazines.

In the television show, contestants had their looks evaluated by three panellists, who included supermodel Rachel Hunter.

Stern claimed in his suit that he lost a deal with another broadcast outlet after Are You Hot? began airing in February (03).
