    What I find particularly ridiculous is when HS talked about his brilliant idea that "just popped in his head while in the shower".

    How can people not realize this is a blatant rip-off of the Onion Radio News that HS played constantly before he went to Sirius?

    The man really has never had an original creative thought on his own.

    His shower ideas were great. They were even gonna just pop on a channel at any time and talk about whatever on their ISDN line. Snake oil salesman

    Howard also claimed he invented the concept of a wrap-up show, even though Oprah did it long before Howard's move to Sirius. That's one of the many reasons he's considered to be a buffoon by most of the show business community, he takes credit for innovations he had no part in.

    If it was such a great concept why has it been gradually phased out since the second year of Sirius.

    Didn't Johnny (Carnac) Carson steal this bit from Howard (Sternac)?

    nothing like mocking a bit that was in the public eye 35-40 years ago

    Way to stay 'hep'

    I like when he set it up last week saying: 'we're doing this because we get email saying people like this"

    sad.

    Because they aren't allowed to report on anyone from the show
    It was a great concept before Howard sabotaged it.

    Howard invented Fartman, even though National Lampoon created it.

    The two are nothing alike. The Onion make fake news stories for humor. Howard 100 News make fake news stories to convince what's left of Howard's cult that he is better than ever.

    BTW, I always think it is funny that Howard has accused Jimmy Kimmel of stealing from him in the past when Howard has blatantly ripped off Win Ben Stein's Money with Fred taking on the Ben Stein role.

    "Jeopardy" from Art Fleming.

    "Smarter Than a Fifth Grader" (homeless person, crack whore, modoe, stripper, etc) from Art Linkletter.

    "Baba Booey" from Desi Arnaz or Quick Draw McGraw.

    The list is endless.

    You have a point, how much more interesting would the "news" have been if they did stories about NSAL's poor performance ratings, Howard's homes, AGT's ratings, Robin's real estate shenanigans or anything about Fred whose real life hasn't been mentioned on the show in years.

    Howard will never let the truth get in the way of a good lie.

    LOL! If only.

    No they interview the on air guests to find out how appearing on the Stern Show changed their careers. For example, Amy Schumer was interviewed and she said how Judd Apatow decided to produce her movie because he heard her on the Stern Show.

    They also do around the clock reporting on the phenomenon that is AGT. They interview some of the tens of millions of people waiting on line to get into an AGT taping so they can say that coming to see Howard live is unlike anything other than when Moses went up the mountain to get the Ten Commandments.

    Survivor did a wrap-up show for it's finales before Howard was on Sirius. Big Brother did it too.
