    First a Letterman appearance where he didn't boost Dave's ratings and lost to Nightline as well as Leno. Then an embarrassing Super Bowl ad showing bionic Howie with new wig, teeth and chin packed with a pound of make-up that garnered zero attention beyond Bobo and Jillian Barberie. Is Howie finally being exposed as irrelevant?

    At the Super Bowl party last night when his commercial aired, I think I was the only "fan" there.
    Everyone else was like "fuck Howard Stern"..."I thought he retired"...."why would they choose him?"

    I liked the ad as well.

    Two women under the age of 30 sitting next to me asked "who was that"

    howard is surrounded by "yes" people. they tell him things he wants to hear with regards to listenership numbers, among other things, even though they are untrue.

    he's surrounded by spineless 'yes' men alright, but you KNOW he checked the ratings for letterman and was knocked down a peg

    Not to mention that a less oblique winst (but still irritating when it comes to posting discombobulated youtubes) has resurfaced making vague illusions that confirm suspicions re Horsey's European modeling "gig" including suggestions that DB entrusted a sloppy delegate to expunge all "evidence." Stay tuned.

    What I can't figure out is why AGT would take SUCH a big risk on him....relocating the show taping location, setting up everything all around HIM and his schedule..? SOMEONE there really must think he's worth the money and the time... ????

    If Howard's right and Simon is in control of AGT, he's not exactly on a winning streak, bringing Paula back with that Nicole woman backfired big time on him with X-Factor and he's on the hot seat there to improve the ratings.
