    During the Sharon Osbourne/Julie Chen segment, Howard said this..."I sat in Rupert Murdoch's office 25yrs ago -- he wanted me to take over from Joan Rivers. He said 'I want you to take over late night for me'. I said no."
    In all the years i've listened, this is the first time i've heard this story.

    Really? I Stand corrected. I've honestly never heard this tale before & it stunned the fuck out of me. It was obviously a lie, right?

    25 years ago? Maybe. But if he said "25 weeks ago" you know it'd be a bullshit tsunami.

    That's just one of the imaginary job offers Howard refers to from time to time, along with various movie deals and the ABC interview show. He's completely full of shit.

    Murdoch apparently wanted him for a 13 week trial run and after the disastrous pilots depending on who you believe, Howard balked at the 13 week trial or Murdoch's people re-negged on the deal.

    Have any of Howard's supposed job offers ever been verified by the person or organization who allegedly made them? I can't recall any who were.

    Didn't he sue over one of the movie deals? That COULD indicate that a deal of some kind existed.

    The Fox test shows are on the internet!
    The worst TV ever....is why he didn't get the late night show on fox.
    Howard the least funniest man in the world had Jackie under his desk feeding him lines.
    Leslie West...coke up out of his mind was funny though.

    But but but a Oscar award winning director wants to work with Howard, he said so a while ago. I bet they seen the viral videos that Howard uploaded on YouTube that got millions of views.

    Yeah, 15 years ago:
    http://www.thesmokinggun.com/documents/crime/howard-stern-demanding-0


    When Howard Stern hammered out this $1.5 million deal to appear in the movie "Jane," he made one thing perfectly clear: "The hair personnel shall be first priority to Artist." That's one of the highlights of this agreement

    The Smoking Gun loves Howie's decree that, "No other cast member shall receive a more favorable trailer or amenities."
