Hopefully it isn't "fake news". According to Norm Macdonald's Twitter, he will be returning to the Howard Stern Show to promote his new autobiography "Based on a True Story" The book comes out September 20th. Hopefully this means Norm will be on in the next couple weeks. Unless Howard pulls the same shit with Norm he did with Doug Stanhope and doesn't have him on until 2+ months after the book is published, thus robbing him of the "Stern Effect" This will be Norm's first appearance on the show in over 5 years, since he and Kevin Farley appeared in early 2011 to promote the ill-fated "Sports Show with Norm Macdonald". Expect this appearance to be another boring, formulaic sit-down interview a la Gilbert's last appearance. But Norm is Norm and will bring the fire regardless. You can pre-order Norm's book here.
