Wiggy trying to impress his new daddy...Mr Malone!
I'm sure they were being very creative....
"Ok, so which one of the staff want to start a fight with each other over something mundane, so we can fill programming next week?"
they should create fewer boring shitty psychiatrist wanna-be interviews
yes.......free staff filler....
They have to find creative ways to:
a. screw Sirius out of more mmoney
b. Explain why upcoming ratings numbers are far lower than Howard has been raggig aabou t
c. Figure out how toget out of owing Dan $1 mmillion
d. Crowbar more Beth into the show
e. Pay employees less
How about we put medicated Pete in a kissing booth?
Didn't we do that on Monday?
I don't know I wasn't listening.
god where to even begin w this one
"Howard, some of the whack packers have been demanding more than the 15 cents you pay them to appear to fill your show with scripted crap"
"Ok, scour youtube so I can claim I made the video viral without giving credit(or more importanly, money) to any of the participants"
please post a clip of this ridiculousness
seriously. did it ever really happen?
They must create something out of nothing. Kind of impressive
lets just all agree that a mtg occurred but nothing remotely creative took place
lulz, meeting, brainstorm, shitstorm, lulz
according to #AGT the crew has a daily creative meeting before the show even starts at around 5am in the morning EVERYDAY and Howard works sooooo hard....oh and Howard waves and talks to brown skinned people in traffic while in the limo
This suspicious renewed interest in the show that Howard and the staff now have comes off as desperate, inauthentic and embarrassing. How misguided of them to think that they could coast for years on the fumes of doctored Tradio calls and Internet clips of news reporters accidentally saying the wrong word, then suddenly put in the job's required effort, and have it be just like the good old days again. They're out of practice, unsure of the Howard Stern Show brand (Can we make gay jokes again? Celebrity jokes? Black jokes? Can we use the N word???), and seemingly accepting any effort to be funny as good enough for airtime.
In the past six weeks or so, we've gotten:
New Bits and songs. Sandusky Claus. "Old Man Ronnie Style." Medicated Pete's kissing booth. All belabored and unfunny.
New bumpers. Staffers -- instead of celebrities -- now doing bumpers, poorly. Last week it was Lisa G reading a script about how wacky she is for believing she has D cups. Then Ronnie read one about how seniors can still have fun. Sal did one this week about not letting your kids watch piss porn. And they have a series now where announcers describe the Howard Stern show in Spanish, which seems like a rehash of a really funny '90s bit where Howard played a clip of a Chinese radio show ripping off his own.
And, most glaringly:
New scripted monologues. Each line delivered as though Howard's reading it for the first time, and punctuated with Howard's own laugh when he actually gets the joke. Robin still isn't sure when he's reading punchlines, and tramples accordingly. Howard has the showmanship of an elementary school kid doing a book report in front of the class -- not that the shitty material would be any better in the hands of someone more capable ...
Ive given up on the hope that one day the show will get it's mojo back. Howard is simply too old, too married, too insecure, too afraid of being sued, too cheap, too bald, too starstruck, too politically correct and too phoney to ever be that crazy bad ass shock jock we all grew up listening too.
Its over Johnny, its over.
Howard's a starfucker now. He's concerned about his image so only mediocre PC shit gets on air.
Nothing can save the show now.
Only hope that Richard & Sal get their own show so they can continue the old antics. I'm sure they'd have no issues making fun of celebs.
Umm Boff, I got nuthin.
The most I laughed today was Richard's phony call with sound bites of Riley cooking a Turkey.
We know, but just keep listening to hear what happens next.
