    Artie Lange is FIRED UP about the possibility of returning to a full-time radio gig -- and tells TMZ he's very confident his old boss Howard Stern will have his back.

    Lange was outside Dan Tana's in Hollywood with his friend and potential new radio partner Nick DiPaolo last night -- when we asked how Howard would feel about his on-air comeback.

    "Howard's the greatest guy in the world" ... Artie said ... adding, "He's been supportive of everything that's happened and he's been a good man to me ... so hopefully he'll be supportive of this ... but you never know."

    As TMZ first reported, the people behind Artie's project are hoping to lock a deal that would nationally simulcast the new show on DirecTV and Fox Sports Radio.

    So far, we're told ... no official deal has been reached.

    Good to see Artie looking healthy again. As for Howard giving his approval, not sure about that. Unless someone calls up to ask him directly I wouldn't be surprised if he didn't say a word about it on the show. Hampton's talk is more interesting. :rolleye:

    Really looking forward to whatever he does off the show as long as he's healthy and capable to handle it

    Howard will puss out and ask Robin and Fred on air what they think. Then mimic the answer but with a positive spin of his own if they are too harsh. Just like he did with the return to the show appearance that Artie asked about

    It'll be good to hear Artie again on a regular basis.

    That's the thing. If that borefest with DiPaolo is any indicator of what their regular show would be like, he's incapable of being "on" without the drugs. He'll be wracking his brain trying to be funny and once he realizes he just doesn't have it now it'll drive him back to dope.

    It's not really his fault. Throwing a dart a calendar, Artie had a 72% chance of landing on one of Howard's vacation days.

    You're actually just about right on the money figuring he only works 120 days a year for the rest of this contract.
