UNDATED (CNN) -- An advocacy group stirs up controversy ahead of the new season of "America's Got Talent," and Prince Harry is honored in the U.S. for his humanitarian work.

Companies that may advertise on the upcoming season of NBC's "America's Got Talent" got a sharp warning from a parents group Monday. In a letter, the Parents Television Council said the show's new judge, radio host Howard Stern, has an affinity for profanity and degrading women, which he'll likely bring with him to the live show.

The council stopped short of calling for a boycott of advertisers, but hinted it could happen. In the past, stern has said he plans to take his judging duties seriously.

Britain's Prince Harry has taken a jaunt across the pond to accept a humanitarian award. Monday night the 27-year-old royal was honored by the Atlantic Council in Washington DC. He was recognized for work he's done with his brother, Prince William, running a foundation that supports servicemen and women.

Earlier in the day, he attended a reception at the British ambassador's residence, where he met with British and American vets, who will participate in this year's warrior games.

Could Woody Allen be considering Lindsay Lohan for his next film? The pair was spotted at a Manhattan restaurant over the weekend, setting Hollywood abuzz. A rep for Lohan confirms to People.com they did have dinner together, saying Lohan is a big admirer of Allen's.

NBC has not responded to requests for comment on Monday's letter from the Parents Television Council. But reps for Howard Stern point to an online video showing audience members praising Howard Stern after a recent taping of "America's Got Talent."
