Imus is a far better listen than Howard.

    So, I've been watching and listening to Imus the past few weeks and he's:

    • More interesting to watch and the topics they discuss are more relevant than what you hear on Stern.
    • He doesn't continually kiss the asses of the rich and famous.
    • He's aging better than Stern (and he's much older), and looks and dresses better, and more age appropriate.
    • His wife is more interesting and way smarter than Beth, has more style and actually adds something to the show.
    • His cast of characters seem to work hard and seem to actually be having fun, instead of a show of repetitive, boring, fake bits. They actually put EFFORT into the show.
    • He has a nice blend of news/guests and humor, something we haven't seen from Stern in years.
    • He doesn't work only once or twice a week, so you can actually count on him being in the studio.
    • And, get this, a new concept: He's FREE. You don't need a subscription to some crap company to watch and listen to him.

    Howard had convinced his brainwashed, lemming fans (who are dwindling) that Imus was this no-talent, humorless phony, with a much younger, gold digging wife. Funny, but Howard was actually describing himself, because Imus doesn't resemble that description, or at least not to the same blatant extent as loser Stern and his cunt wife.

    I stumbled onto Imus on TV and decided to check out what a douche he is.

    To my amazement, I found the format and the personalities to actually be engaging and entertaining.

    I agree with all of the above. It's come full circle: Howard is the fuddy duddy douche hole and Imus is winning like Charlie Sheen.

    Imus always had quality mainstream guests which is really what chap's Stern's ass.

    I'm addicted to Leykis now. His two partners are hilarious and Tom is honest with his listeners.

    Howard created Imus. Therefore Howard is better. At least according to Howard.

    Imus reinvented himself after Howard went to K-Rock in 1985, and especially after WNBC went belly up and became WFAN in 1988. He's still a grouchy pompous ass but his political topics and guests are usually relevant to important current issues and he's still a good interviewer. I used to listen to Imus on WFAN but stopped because I couldn't stand that bald stooge, Bernard McGuirk. I always thought McGuirk was chiefly to blame for the "nappy headed ho" scandal.

    I've said since I started posting here that Wiggy slowly has become worse than Imus, because he's done every thing that he's given grief to Imus for, including giving his no-talent wife a career.

    I find Imus' show good when he's interviewing guests and shooting the shit with his staff. I don't like the 2 cats that do characters on his show. Neither are funny.

    Imus's musical guests are way better than anything that Wiggy has had on.

    Howard sucks now. This is true. But Imus is horrible. Wigward still wins

    I misread your title thinking you were stating that Imus was a better listener than Howard and though I haven't listened to Imus in years, I was going to agree just based on Howard's interviews of late. He doesn't listen to his guests. If they said "You know, Howard, 2+2=4," a minute later Howard will say "So what do you think 2+2 equals?"

    Hard to tell which one is better or more relevant... Imus doing his Nixon voice or Stern's Ted Kennedy voice.

    Nixon's been out of office for 40 years and dead for the last 20. Kennedy died a few years ago.

    Leykis really pushes the limit. He's great, just wish I had more time to listen to him.

    Whether you like Imus or not, -and like the OP, I started watching him on Fox News in the mornings sometimes, it's hard to refute that Imus's ensemble is a helluva lot smarter and more talented, his guests more varied and often classier, and that he actually listens to and respects them. And nary a dick-size question arises. It boils down to regardless if he's for you or not, there's no denying he puts in the work to produce a far superior show for his audience, instead of pissing on them figuratively and literally.
