    Howard Stern has only gained 16,000 followers on Twitter in the past 2 weeks - a mere 1% increase.
    I know many of you don't care about Twitter, but this is an indication that the public (especially young people) don't give a shit about Howard Stern.


    As of 5 minutes ago (1.12 million):

    You know what is funny? Howard claims to be this huge celebrity with 6 million listeners on Sirius and Oprah, Ashton Kutcher, Ellen DeGeneres, and others have 5-6 times more Twitter followers than Howard. In fact, Piers Morgan (who Howard is obviously replacing at AGT) has more than twice as many followers as Howard at 2.2 million followers.

    Wow, for a British news/gossip dude who's never entertained a single human (versus a 35 year comedic performer who used to have a fan base) that's pretty damning.

    Teenagers know of Howard....but don't give a shit him let alone the medium of talk radio as entertainment. Whenever I'm with my nephews and I put on Howard they'd rather listen to Shade 45 or some other bullshit.

    So you're saying the count is not EVEN a popularity contest, let alone a measure of quality, that it's rigged from the start, and that it's a silly trifle that some people like to occupy their time monitoring?

    Actually, AGT only has 50,000 followers (less than Richard, Sal, Ronnie, JD etc). Even Beetlejuice has 40,000, and he doesn't know how to turn on a computer. This show is so irrelevant... if you combine the record sales of the winners from the past two seasons - it wouldn't be certified Gold. Apparently 10 million people watch AGT, but they are all irrelevant shitheads.

    There is an upper limit to how many followers you can purchase - typically in the 10's of thousands... for some new artist starting out. When your twitter audience reaches into the millions, then it does become a valid metric.

    More importantly.. if you go on a media blitz for 2 weeks with no results, it shows a lack of interest..

    Howard has said himself that young people don't watch TV and they certainly aren't going to watch that crappy show. I don't know anyone who wants to tune into AGT in the first place- maybe it would appeal to simple minded people
