    I am fascinated by how many real listeners and for that matter how many real twitter followers Sir Howard the Irrelevant has. Anyway to calculate?

    i think he has a lot more subscribers than people who actually tune in. most new cars come with a 1 yr sirius subscription. the drivers probably recognize Howard's name on the surveys and check him off when asked what they listen to. i think the number of people who subscribe specifically to listen to him are far lower.

    Do a little math like Howard, subtract the 1, add the 3, minus the 2, and you got at least 8 million.

    RIGHT ROBIN?!?!?!?

    The only way to know for sure is to call everyone in the United States. I recommend starting today.

    It's hard to count because so many people are crowded around each radio.

    ! never missed a show in the last 8 years until a couple of months ago. I lost interest when it became a celebrity show.

    Fkn pisses me off to no end how they make it like the secret davinci code finding out ratings. Sirius sucks that way. Do love the Sports and Nfl package on long drives:)

    just look at retweet counts and youtube counts and the audience is tiny

    popular podcasts have a far larger audience than the wigman

    Since Sirius is a satellite company they don't receive traditional Arbitron ratings. However, they sell advertising and the cost per spot is based on how many listeners there are. The sales reps would need to disclose to the buyers how many listeners they will reach with each ad.

    Given the fact that his top sponsors are cheating sites, food delivery, ass and ball cream, more cheating on your wife sites, identity protection, bed sheets, LootCrate, Clearfit, and lets not forget Canvas World. Don't you think if this guy was pulling in over 5 million listeners he would have better sponsors? He had better ad revenue at Channel 9 in 1991 with Snapple.

    Also look at AGT, looks like he gained no viewers since joining. The show already had 10 mil viewers on average.

    A couple of months ago, on one of the live wrap up shows, Hein asked whoever was in studio with him how many people voted in the online favorite segment poll that day that they use to run regularly on WUS, and then intern (or whoever it was) said the winning segment had 300-something votes. The studio went silent for 4-5 seconds.

    Then Hein came back from an obvious mic cut off, and and was saying that you got a free head shot of Hein or Baba-Booey to a caller that was now on air.

    That voting part was cut out from later WUS repeats when I tried to get a recording of it.

    Guesstimate...Opie and Anthony claimed they were reaching 1 million people per week a few years ago (as in 200k per day). I'm guessing Howie was hitting 750-1 million at that point and probably settled in around 250k now

    Newcastle Fan makes a lot of sense too re car factory installations of Sirius vs real listeners. As you might expect Howard often flatters himself with misleading stats

    I still don't understand why the ratings aren't calculated. The only way to measure radio listening is polling and sample testing. There is no difference if it's am, fm, or xm. Peoples replies on these surveys would not have to be done any differently.
