    Stern is live again today and calling it another bonus show. We all know at he won't do more than the number of shows called for in his contract so what is really going on? He said he got blindsided by AGT when he had to do those shows in Jersey this Spring, the ones attended by continuation school students and mentally challenged tourists. But this has gone beyond that, he typically takes off two or three weeks for Labor Day and another week in early August. Debra's wedding isn't until 2016 so it's not that. Could it be that he ends his Sirius tenure early to give himself time to "prepare" for what's coming in January?

    I am thinking that negotiations aren't going well and Howard wants to basically get out of dodge after Thanksgiving if he does not renew with Sirius.

    Or Howard knows that his subscription rates drop exponentially during August when he does 4 shows for the entire month and he doesn't want to lose his bargaining power with Sirius with another mass exodus in August.

    One thing is for sure, he is not doing extra shows out of the goodness of his heart.

    I'm thinking he didn't know about the Aniston wedding until maybe two weeks prior and starfucker wasnt going to miss that for anything, so these are his make up shows...

    I was thinking a Thanksgiving exit as well, December in Florida to enjoy Beth's new $10 million closet.

    He only missed two shows for the Aniston wedding and he usually takes a week off in July anyway. He usually only does four shows in August working the first two weeks and taking off the last two. He hasn't missed a week this August. the Aniston wedding would only account for one week off in August.

    I'm thinking his audience has dwindled down to the Jeton/Djenkin8 types of the world...........And that ain't much........

    Didn't he say that he was facing working in December or something like that as a result of AGT? He's trying to get those days back.

    It means that S/XM has told Howie and Buchwaldco Worldwide to go pound sand and they're shitting themselves.

    I've got money that says the $10 mil closet is code for panic room. It's got a beautiful soup dispenser, 100 gallons of purell, and a modge podge station already set up for when he gets scared and has to run in there for hours at a time.

    Something is going on. No way Stern would be working these August dates if there wasn't some sort of payoff in the fall. Likely no shows in December is my guess:pray:
