    During the news caller called in and asked Howard how much of the show was scripted.

    Howard obviously befuddled by this guy getting past the screeners rushed him off the phone in a hurry and quickly moved on to talking about Margot Robbie wearing too much clothes.

    Best call in a long time

    You think it's really scripted?

    I think the show or/and Stern has a outline in advance for what they will discuss for each of the live shows. Unless its important event that recently happened, like 9/11 or surprise guest who shows up out of nowhere.

    but last week a caller criticized the Wrap Up show's guest and the show and Howard sounded annoyed. The caller seemed to have caught Howard off guard. now that was a great call

    I'm disappointed because they removed the night mode from the final release. It was so fucking sweet.

    The caller was an idiot, the show is planned not scripted. He could have asked a much better question once he got through if he wanted to annoy Howard.

    Should have asked Howard about cock. Howard hates that topic and can't stand it when people bring it up.

    I always wondered if parts of shows or segments are pre taped. So Howard can technically leave earlier or if serious makes him stay there physically live for the whole show

    What are you guys crazy? It's purely coincidence that when a random caller brings up a subject Howard just happens to have tape ready to roll on that very subject, no matter how obscure the subject.

    Everytime "Chad" calls in, it's clearly set up ahead of time so Howard can pontificate on whatever dumb topic he mentions. Why Howard can't just talk about something without the dipshit calling in is beyond me.... :fil:

    This. Or he was planted too since he was so easy to shoot down. Howard quickly said, "yeah I'm going to memorize 50,000 lines of script"

    No, Howard. But when the guy earlier calls up and asks if you've seen The Match Game with Alec Baldwin and you go on a 15 minute bit with the game show's theme song queued up and 20 different obviously prewritten jokes about it - thats when we smell bullshit.

    Threads like these always throw me because subconsciously I assume he has no listeners left. None. At all. 0.0

    Happens every time.

    Carry on.
