    Funny line, but Howard couldn't do a good interview, let alone a good TV show ever anymore.

    It's over.

    It doesn't matter what time he goes on or how dark the set is, no one wants to hear a creepy old man ask people how big their cocks are or if they like anal.

    What a dreary, long-winded, completely off-the-mark cunt! :mad:

    The problem isn't Howard's "self-consciousness about his appearance".......................it's his actual appearance (among a thousand other things)! :mad:

    How is there still Kool-Aid left to go around?

    How does he still have people hoodwinked into thinking he's still 90s-Howard? The "hair"?

    :uscratch:

    I love how the original rumor was attributed to someone close to Stern (most likely Beth if you follow the timeline and her being the only name quote in the article), but people keep on acting like Howard didn't start the rumor and is trying to deny it. In fact, he kept on trying to push the BS by saying he is contractually not allowed to talk about it.

    Exactly. Because even with Howard's (radio show's) extended format, he still steamrolls through interviews, cutting off his subjects' answers in a mad, maniacal race to the bottom of his list of questions.

    If he could, he would crowbar a live-read commercial between asking a subject an interview question and the subject's attempt at answering the question.

    Howard: "So, tell me about your first homosexual experience."
    David Arquette: "Well, I was 7 and..."
    Howard: "So David, do you find yourself always buying shaving razors? 'Cause I've got a product for you..."
    :facepalm:

    Didn't Howard have a one-on-one interview show back on E years ago? As I recall, it didn't break any new ground back then OR bring in any huge ratings.

    It was his first show on E!, before they put cameras in the studio. It started not long after the Channel 9 show went away.

    E! was still a small cable outfit back then. Now E! is a mainstay of basic cable. But back then not many systems offered it. I don't know if it was groundbreaking because I only saw it once (he reran the interview Phil Hartman & his wife after she killed him). I always wondered why he never reran any of them once E! got bigger. I would have been curious to see them. I wonder if the contract he signed to air the E! radio shows on HTV includes these. I've never seen them on there.

    Howard is hideous. Nothing he does will change the fact that he looks like an anorexic scarecrow with a black mop on his head. Nothing, absolutely nothing can camouflage those shifty darting eyes(sunglasses at night and indoors, if anything, make him creepier.
    He doesn't translate well to a visual medium unless you think a mix of Tiny Tim, Michael Jackson, and woody Allen is the last image you want to see just before you turn the lights off.
    Fuckwald started these rumors because contract negotiations begin soon. Howard never should have signed another contract. This time he should just slink away never to be heard from again (unless it's to write a completely honest and revealing book about his life).

    Howard's looks are the least of his problems. And he hasn't done a "celebrity-demystifying, forensic show-biz interview" since the late nineties. :coffee: It's over. He's not funny anymore. And he's not a good interviewer anymore. The end.
