    Do you think Howard has more fans now? We all know he has changed 100% on almost all of his views since married that horse-faced cunt from Pittsburgh. His sheer amount of his earliest and most loyal fans are what gave him so much leverage in the early years when mainstream media hated this fuck. He could always come back with his ratings numbers. However, now that he all of a sudden likes gays, loves animals, loves Rosie and kathie Lee, etc and is on AGT - do you think he has more fans now than before?

    He has the Hollywood left as fans now, which are more important (to him) than us commoners.

    Howard's huge fan base was like a farm system. The fans came up with Howard, hungry like him. Once they saw the big change ala Yoko, Chimneys, etc, they soured and flocked to Dawgs. Howard's new fan base will never be as loyal like the monsters that Howard himself created. He does have F U money and the big F U was to his loyal fans, who are dead to him.

    Difference is now he has to apologize vociferously for remarking that a fat girl with a show on HBO is in fact a fat girl. His pandering to appease listeners is pathetic.

    Stern has lost most of his fan base since moving to satellite radio. What he has is a good agent. There is no way Stern would be considered for any type of projects (American Idol, movies, Tonight Show, etc.) if Buchwald and Co. were not putting out these false rumors through their media stooges. Just look at AGT ratings last year as an example. Buchwald promised some NBC types that Stern would be their messiah, but instead ratings dropped 30% despite a huge media blitz. Stern is less relevant than Imus now. People want to remember the old Stern show, but sadly that went away the day his doorman made the Beth comments.:coffee:

    AGT people are not "his" fans. They're fans of AGT. Once Wig is done with that shit after this season, they're all gonna be gone.

    He is not even pandering to appease 'listeners', he is pandering to appease the Hollywood media.

    i see references to Howard getting married so the doorman would respect her. What's the story behind that? Did his doorman ever really make a comment about Beth, or is it just another Wig fairy tale?

    Stern's story about the doorman is as true as him not knowing about Artie's coke habit:dontknow:

    Put it this way - if AGT plugged any random from say Dancing with the washed up stars into Howard's AGT chair mid season, would any viewers actually care or even notice? Sure the press would mention it since it'd be a chance to point out his irrelevance , but would chubby teenagers and 50yr old hausfraus even notice.. Sadly for Hank the answer is no.

    The people that watch that show are the same mouth breathers that will stop and gawk at a homeless guy on the street with a boombox and a dog that can stand on its hind legs.

    What I honestly wonder is did NBC really not do their due diligence when Buchwald fed m the line that Hank "reaches 20 Million subscribers", and did they really believe that mythical number would translate to viewers for their TV show.

    Otherwise what else did they believe would happen by going into business with him since he never met an employer or signed a contract he didn't turn on and bitch and moan that they're trying to cheat him or kill him quicker. He's never had a business partner he didn't end up resenting in no time thanks his paranoid mentall illness.

    I think Buchwald basically sold them on the idea of "if you sign him on as a judge, you are going to get tons of free publicity/new viewers from the headline alone". The more interesting question is if they just threw in any washed-up guy in that third seat, would the ratings have went down the same way.
    /AGT is a complete snoozefest, but can't fault a guy for taking easy money
    //Also, NBC hasn't been known for it's fiscal sensibilities :p

    He still has a lot of fans but they are growing less and less day by day.

    I honestly think the only fans he has left are people who used to listen to him on terrestrial radio and have no idea how bad his sirius channels are.

    I will bet money that the return of The Hoff would boost ratings above what Howard is getting this year.

    Im sorry:
    The only people who have hired Howard are tribe members. They are not conned by Buchwald. Its the tribe taking care of the tribe.
    Just look at Mel Karmazin. He resigned Howard to a second deal to Sirius knowing that Howard have under 100K listeners. 104 workdays/year and still almost 100 millions/year with production budget. Mel was also compensated when the tribe boardroom bonused themselves.

    Always the tribe. ALWAYS!

    fixed

    but no, it's not even that................it's what BrulesRules said....................

    So he's alienating old fans, but "Hollywood" isn't exactly embracing him, either.

    He's nowheres.....................and it's showing; in the show, in his tweets, in his God-awful :facepalm: AGT performance, and in his business phone that doesn't ring with any legitimate new projects.
