    Don Buchwald on Howard Stern's thoughts during the latest Sirius negotiations, as reported by the NY Times.

    “He loved when he did the movie, he loved when he published the books, he loved the TV shows,” Mr. Buchwald continued, “and he’s thinking, ‘Why am I getting up at four o’clock in the morning and doing the same drivel?’”

    I'm not even angry anymore. Retire to Florida already. The show is dead. Has been for years. Did you not get this memo?

    I never made it to the Wiggy comments, too fucking boring.

    Wonder how much Sirius had to pay for that ad thinly disguised as an article.

    Why would anyone pay for the "same old drivel?" Pretty much explains why his audience has left.

    Horseshit!

    He loved when he did the movie - but never did another one.


    he loved when he published the books ... two in a quarter-century

    he loved the TV show ... you mean the radio show done with TV cameras pointing at him?

    The only success he's had is his radio show. The book, the movie and anything else was all based on the radio show.

    Sure it was based on it but the guy had the number one book, movie, and radio show, that's pretty impressive.

    Howard used the "drivel" to describe his own show?

    I guess that makes it unanimous.

    I find it interesting how they covered their asses when it came to having Stern content through 2027........

    But Mr. Buchwald said that he and Mr. Stern were charmed by Mr. Meyer’s earnestness, and by SiriusXM’s willingness to experiment with new technology. The deal they agreed to at the end of 2015 would keep Mr. Stern doing his radio show for five more years, and also lock in 12 years of access to Mr. Stern’s audio and video archives, along with new video plans that are still under development.

    this whole "getting up at 4 in the morning" bullshit has to be called into question already! The show was moved to at 7am start time because Howard said it was getting hard on him to wake up that early everyday as he got older. Are we to believe he is STILL getting up at 4am? This has to be the "poor me" narrative that he wants to sustain right?
    When the time change first started I remember him talking about staying up a little later to watch an extra show. Now it's back to bitching about 8pm bedtime and 4 am alarm clocks.

    It was number one on opening weekend. Some of you let your hatred of Howard rewrite the past.

    It's not the 90s anymore. He's finished. Just needs somewhere to go a few hours a week.

    As I remember....Opened on what is known to be one of the slowest days of the year for box office returns..........No?
    And please, Enough of the "Hate" Word.....It's a critique, Or retort.........Starting to believe the ones that sling the "H" Word like Carl did to his "Momma and 'dat boy that was havin' his way with her.....Till I seen she was likin' it" Are on the same intelligence level of the Kaiser Blade wielder.........
