    I know, I think Howard is a major sell out and douchbag but I have compliment Howard on his going through the "newspaper" and commenting on topical stories of the day. If Howard is coming up with the humorous quips on his own then his is in rare form but even if they are all written out, who ever is writing the stuff for Howard is doing a good job and Howard is doing a good job at reading. This seems to be a fairly recent part of the show and I like this much more than him continually trying to "beat up" on his staff.

    It does make me wonder if he is slowly weening the audience away from Robin doing the news of the day and just letting Robin sit in on the show and comment as usual. And if so how serious is Robin's illness?

    Are you Mike Morse's agent? Pretty sure Morse wrote all the news one-liners for Howard.

    If that is true then it is the best part of the show and congrats to Morse.

    She can't make it in to work 12 hours a week and she lives nearby and has a driver. That's how serious it is.

    One question I've always had is whether the show could live on without Robin. Howard's clearly extremely attached to her and she's a huge support for him and when he did the show without her he was struggling a bit. Maybe the addition of Morse is to offset the worst outcome wrt Robin. He still has 3 years left on the contract. Doing the show without her will be problematic... he could find another Jackie/Artie or he could just go downhill. As soon as the show becomes even a bigger headache to him he will become irritated and grumpy and will want to quit.

    And to expand on that reading news stuff... that's the hackiest stuff Howie has done in a while.

    It's beyond hacky. It's was he used to rant about over and over.

    Is it confirmed that Morse is the mystery writer?

    I have a downrigger on my boat I use for trolling. OP can't be serious. The jokes are beyond hacky, Howard's delivery sucks. If he ever had it , it's gone. they seem to be spending a lot of time writing scripts. Howard can't read.

    He can't read off a teleprompter, can't read on the fly to work material into the show, completely dependent on Robin to do a show that's supposed to be "all about him", isn't funny, was only funny in the past when he had talent write material and hand it to him, has no genuine work ethic, has no integrity or goals besides how to divert as much of money meant for the rest of the show into his own pocket, doesn't understand music, has horrible taste in t.v and film, and can't understand any other point of view other than his own. Unreal - Howard should kiss the ass and beg forgiveness for every person who he ever stole from or bullied into turning over $$$ or credit. The guy is not talented, and whatever he was good at in the past had much more to do with the people around him than it did his ability.


    'King of All Media' huh? So for all this "hard work" and "talent" that you supposedly have, and all the success you're responsible for - and you can't do the show by yourself? I thought it was "your show", I thought everyone there was only successful because you were kind enough to let them leach off your talent? Is Howard Stern actually admitting he's dependent upon other people in order to for him to have a career? So frantically worried about Robin (and not about her health, which is the important thing here) and yet whenever it's time for the next paycheck or contract, it's "my" show. I can not believe I used to like this guy, and I can't believe Robin and Fred have stayed with him. It actually shows what little confidence and respect they have for themselves.

    Howard's reading and comedic timing are atrocious.
    Medicated Robin tramples all setups and punchlines.
    Fred laughs before punchlines on jokes he has written.

    Impossible to write for PC sellout Stern. Morning Zoo's are more edgy!

    Obviously written by a friend of the writing "team" or a member of it.
