    It seems like everyone on that staff is busy watching every season of every show on television. What is that ?

    I mean Howard said he skipped coverage of the hurricane to watch a season of some shit....Ronnie is watching some douchey girl show that he plugs every thursday on Jon Hein's TV Show. Then you flip over to GEEKTIME and it's a continuation of interviewing lame actors writers and directors of these shows. Why is everyone so fascinated by by this shit?.....

    :lol:

    For the most part Howard loves shows
    ...that are produced by friends of his
    ...have Buchwald clients in the cast
    ....or are paid commercials.

    Sons of Anarchy.....was a paid commercial and also has Buchwald clients in the cast

    I'm sure there are more Buchwald clients in Howards favorite shows that he happens to mention at least once a week

    These people seriously have no substance in their lives. Most of them are at least pushing 40, and the only thing they seem to be doing is watching some crap on tv and drooling.:uscratch:

    My mom always told me not to listen to anybody who uses "Mitt Romney is my boo.." as their signature.

    Howard is right. Ruffy's wrong, sad to say.

    that is so idiotic. SOA is one of the highest rated cable shows--Christ people used to bitch that Howard didn't watch great shows, now that he does, he's a douche :facepalm:

    Talking about what is on TV is the laziest thing a radio host can do. It requires almost no show-prep whatsoever. Plus, it sort of requires your audience to be lazy as well...it's not as if you're challenging them to think about complicated issues or to consider life from a different perspective.

    Contrast this to what good comics do. Take Louis CK for example...he talks about mundane things in his life, adds a lot of context and unique analysis, and really makes folks think about stuff in a new way. And because he's talented, he's able to make it funny.

    Howard believes he possess this talent, but he doesn't. He rambles on about reality TV and bullshit teenager programming and comes across sounding as clueless as your 75 year old mother. Despite his pretensions to the contrary, he isn't a deep thinker or a natural entertainer. In the past, he was clever enough to surround himself with funny, crazy people who clearly--in hindsight--were doing most of the heavy lifting.

    It is hilarious when Howard says stuff like, "how do people have time to (fill in the blank), Robin?!?! I just don't have any time!"

    Well they probably don't watch 8 hrs of tv a day for starters...

    Why am I not shocked you are idiotic yet again. How is it possible that you get everything WRONG?!

    Did you forget about the AGT Tom Cotter debacle?
    Stern lied and said that he and Don had no idea Cotter was a Buchwald client.


    Howard regularly has Z-list guests on his show that get amazing one hour interviews......that are Buchwald clients but it is never disclosed.


    Once a week stern rattles off a handful of shows he is watching. Why doesn't he ever talk about these shows on the air if he loves them so much? The fucking guy played a 6 month old viral video the other day. He struggles to find new shit to talk about as it is.

    Each week he mentions shows he is watching as if he has a post-it note on his console reminding him to mention shows he is 'watching'


    Stern is a greedy lazy serial liar.
    Truth and honesty are never an option to Howard Stern!

    When I started listening to the show, I thought, because of his articulateness, that he must be dumbing shit down for his audience. It was quite a shock to realize how uneducated and shallow-minded the man really is. In fact, this continues to shock me, even though I'm way past the point where it no longer should...

    It astounds me how they manage to wade through vast amounts of tv & find the time to watch new movie releases as well

    The Show Must Go On... and it did... Tuesday, while NYC was closed, Howard did his radio show that started out the gate asking JD if he had the new season of "The Revolution" followed by belittling the Booey for wanting to protect HA HA HA his house and Doug Greenstein is a pussy to Richard Christy is a loser for not showing up for work becaus he had to protect his garbage HA HA HA.....to Identity Guard, to Bud light commercials to Wolfie to Robin's News filled with interuptive (live reads) and finally closing with Howard having Fred write some sincere/ heart filled lines to read off to the victims of Sandy.

    On one hand I'd rather hear him talking about good dramas instead of shitty reality shows but on the other I don't need to know what shows he's watching at all.
