    The Howard Stern Show jinx is alive and well...

    I, Frankenstein came in 6th place this weekend making 8.6 million

    granted the movie sounded like pure garbage but it had expected to make at least twice as much ...

    Proving two things

    The HSS can only book the desperate ..

    and

    Promoting on the The Howard Stern Show makes zero difference in box office/ ratings /books sales

    "Robin, I had Jonah Hill in last week and "The Wolf of Wall Street" is a monster hit. That isn't just a coincidence."

    "Howard, that movie opened over Christmas."

    "Rumors of me interviewing Jonah created such a buzz for the movie that it became a monster hit."

    I, Frankenstein was not screened for critics, and has been panned by critics. On Rotten Tomatoes, it has a 5% rating, with an average score of 3.4/10, based on 42 reviews. The site's consensus states: "Loud, incoherent, and dramatically listless, I, Frankenstein is a remarkably dull fantasy adventure that fails to generate much excitement or interest in its characters."[SUP][26][/SUP] On Metacritic, the film holds a 26 (out of 100), based on 15 critics, indicating "generally unfavorable reviews".[SUP][27][/SUP]

    Did Jonah come in for for Wall Street?

    or did his publicist book him on real shows?

    The power of Stern = books which don't sell well, low ratings on AGT and zero box office effect. Good thing Howard is on satellite where the public can't see how few listeners he really has today.

    Aaron Eckhart's next movie will premier at a drive-in, then go straight to video. Then Wiggy will interview him again.

    As a doctor who recently had his re - animated amalgam of local coeds wander back to campus, I am offended by Aaron Eckhart's attempt to mimic my pain. I spent months and hundreds of dollars building my finest creation only to lose her to "Bikini Beach Bitch Night" at the Tau Omega house.
