    Feels weird hearing Jackie make quips at her situation when everyone else in the Stern universe seems to be doing their best to maintain radio silence.

    Listening to the 6-26-2012 episode (or one close to that one), two things caught my attention:

    "Robin Quivers memorial" glass booth has become a running joke.

    A guy called Jimmy "Jirish" McClure was away from the show because he was "attending to Robin".

    I'm pretty sure the word sickness was mentioned there as well...

    (Best show on the channels, btw.:D)

    The shit they say about him -- 'white trash' 'disgusting' -- he's clocked up plenty of goofing credits. Long may he continue.

    Jackie's Joke Hunt is pretty much unlistenable. I have no idea why Howard gives him an hour once a week or how much he pays him to do that wretched show. I have nothing against Jackie. I wish he was still on the air with Howard as it would probably help the show. But the Joke Hunt is a... well, a joke. Half of the jokes aren't even funny. Ask me how I know this. Too much time is spent by Jackie telling us stories about people we don't know, never heard of or don't care about. I feel sorry for him that in the end, this is the best Jackie can get out of his long association with Howard. Very sad.

    Do you think Howard pays Jackie? I don't. The only reason why we are even talking about Jackie is because of Howard, and yes, I can't believe I am saying that.

    He's the technical guy who goes to Robin's home every day during the show. He's one of the few people who knows what Robin's condition really is, too bad he's not talking. I loved Jackie on the Stern Show but Joke Hunt is horrible and I can't listen to it.

    Yup, still on. 300th episode out this week.

    Maybe I'm weird but I love Jackie's shtick. I think he has created a unique atmosphere to his show that is just simply fun to listen to.

    The McKean stuff cracks me up every single time. For real.:D

    It's really not that kind of a show. Jackie obviously loves what he's doing and is not trying to become a star.

    Good point.

    Once you leave Howard you can never go home. I'm shocked he doesn't piss all over Burnett for becoming the king of reality TV and not answering phones all day for him.

    You are absolutely right. That's why I am certain he isn't paying Jackie a dime, but is throwing him a bone by giving him a show.

    Nothing poor about the guy. He's clearly the happiest and most likable person on the channels.

    Jackie leaving was the beginning of the downward slide of the show, he kept everyone on their toes and wasn't afraid to mix it up with Howard, and loved to bust Robin's balls! miss ol' jackie!

    One thing's for sure, though. The show is definitely not for people who can't switch off the negativity and the critical attitude (for lack of better words) that are necessary to enjoy the Stern show.

    Jackie knew Howard before he was Howard Stern and as such wasn't afraid to talk shit. How great would it be to have Jackie back in the Jackie chair mixing it up with Howard about Beth, the "Long Island" home, NSAL?

    The mind boggles at the thought of how awesome it would be to hear his comments. However, a more realistic way to accomplish this would be to sneak our way into one of his after-show dinners at Carnegie Deli.:D
