Who’s hotter right now than Adam Carolla, former co-host of MTV’s Loveline and Comedy Central’s The Man Show? Okay, maybe Brad and Angelina, but still, Carolla’s visibility is skyrocketing. The Learning Channel announced yesterday it’s giving the funnyman a 13-episode series about buying and refurbishing his boyhood home for resale. And Howard Stern, on the heels of an on-air prank using a David Lee Roth impersonator to trick people into thinking he was prematurely booted from his show, announced Carolla will be his Los Angeles replacement come September.

Are you excited for Carolla-mania? More importantly, had you heard of the guy before today? Weigh in now.
