    During Father/Son, Gary was talking about how his insurance changed because he is now under insurance with CBS and he was still trying to get it solved. It doesnt solve the whole riddle of where HowardTV is going, but I guess it could follow Letterman...?

    Except in Gary's case CBS means Caged Baboon Society. His new home.

    Not to mention that Gary doesn't work for Howard TV. He's under contract with Sirius or 1/12 or whatever for the next 2 years or so.

    If Howard swung a deal with CBS and CBS would foot the insurance, everyone will be working for cbs.

    What happened to NBC's love?

    That could easily mean they're doing something on one of the many Viacom Networks.

    Howard Stern on Spike TV or Comedy Central? Those 2 both have a lot of vacant spaces.

    there are hundreds of pathetic little cable channels, many owned by CBS/viacom. quite frankly, i don't give a damn....the show is pathetic enough to listen to, i doubt if i would spend a minute watching it.

    Does CBS have a UHF channel? That's about the only place they'd put Howard Stern content at this point.

    It could be a CBS slap in the face to NBC. NBC will be the one laughing though.

    After the AGT ratings slow build never happened, any network would be crazy to offer big bucks to Howard and he would never take a small guarantee with a chance for upside based on performance.

    Maybe Howard and Don are going to try to create more fake buzz about the demand for Howard's services.
