    RATINGS RAT RACE: ‘America’s Got Talent’ Hits Season Low...

    Howard Stern’s descent into obscurity is approaching its nadir. What these ratings signify is that the self-proclaimed King of All Media is less of a primetime draw than David HassselHoff, Piers Morgan, or Brandy. This can’t be argued with. If any good comes of this debacle it will be the cautionary tale that follows: don’t ever assume that success can be built on ego, toupees, and hair dye; you have to really deliver something to your demographic. Howard’s career peaked 14 years ago; the rest has been one long cash grab on the road to the graveyard of show business. It’s always sad to see the one’s we admired grow old, but it’s devastating to see them suffering in the spotlight as they desperately cling to something they can never have back.
    Farewell, funny man. Enjoy your beautiful wife and your gilded lifestyle. Take heart in knowing that you once were the King, which is more than most can ever say.
