    This could be one of the opportunities that Howard has lined up as a future platform for his show.

    Imagine how much it would mean to Apple to get Howard's 20 million listeners to subscribe to their new TV service right off the bat. It would be a great home for the new Howard TV. Howard could even produce other shows starring his staff in their own shows. Who wouldn't watch a Richard and Sal Tradio spinoff? Or Geektime TV? Maybe they could even bring back "For What It's Worth" with Jon Hein and Gary.

    "Robin, I'm going to fill three channels with shows from real TV guys, I have an iPad full of ideas for shows, Tissue Time with Heidi Cortez's nephew, a game show - the Biggest Schlong and Doody Clean Up sponsored by Squatty Potty and we'll only break to use the restroom"

    While I am seriously considering getting the newer AppleTV hub, I will not be using it to view a HS production: there are free test patterns that were more entertaining than HTV.

    Robin, we're going to Apple. They said that they'll let me do whatever I want and there'll be no censorship. I have big plans for Metabolically Challenged Eric and Boots.

    I hate to give Howard credit. But even I can't argue with the numbers, you guys:

    June of 2013: iTunes has about 575 million active accounts.

    August of 2013: Howard Stern signs up for iTunes. They now have roughly 575,000,001 active accounts. Howard begins talking about iTunes on every show, tweeting a snapshot of his Metal Mania playlist on iTunes, playing the latest Rhianna or Bruno Mars songs he downloaded, and asking guests questions like, "Do you have the iTunes?"

    April of 2014: CEO Tim Cook announced that Apple has nearly 800 million iTunes active accounts.

    That's a growth rate of roughly 40 percent in one year on a very mature product. And I think we're kidding ourselves if we don't credit that unprecedented spike to Howard Stern's immense, extremely loyal fan base, who had never even heard of iTunes until the King of All Media led them to it.

    The Power of Howard!

    Unless Apple wants to segue into Dr Demento type niche and senior markets, it's hard to believe he'd be their or any organization's savior. Throw in his attitude, slothfulness, fear of having his performance quantifiably audited and his proclivity to sue past business partners including his present one and you've got a blueprint for inevitable failure.
