Discussion in 'The Howard Stern Show' started by Ruffypup, Aug 20, 2012.
He implied that Jay was an asshole and it was made up. Shocking really, I thought this would have finally repaired Howard's one sided war with Jay. Expect an apology or some sort of story correction as Howard's time line was completely fucked. He implied that they carried everyone over from te pprime time show and He had to cut the budget and NBC allowed him to be the hero in the story. Only problem with the story is the move back from Prime Time was almost 2 years ago. Howard is in my opinion a vile human. He has no ability to acknowledge anyone unless they give his wonky eyed wife a job.
They are both shit heads
Stern fights like a 12 year old girl on Facebook.
Stern invented hoarding all the marbles and hiding behind the curtain while people are fired because of his greed and lies!
Everything he said insulting Jay could easily be applied to himself.
Wiggys rant was so fucking ridiculous....even the non haters were shaking their heads in disbelief...
Howard is a soulless human that can't fathom any person not hoarding all the marbles!
I don't know any non-haters
wiggy has just about kissed everyones ass at this time, what is the diff he should just bend over for jay.
It's real to me, damnit!
Who is the asshole/assholes repping keithninety?
He put it down to the move back from prime time? That's idiotic, it was clear that this was a belt tightening move by Comcast as the new owner of NBC.
Yes, he said that this was Jay's way of getting rid of who he wanted to & coming out like a good guy.
like Howard got rid of Bubba and blamed evil Sirius...
Stern tried to get rid of Bubba a couple of times
.....but that dummy kept taking a huge pay cut...
it sure is just ask 75% of the people in this picture that got fire
It looks like the one thing he's still good at is spinning the facts. Then again, he probably gets help from Buchwald & Co.
Even if jay did lie about it, it's still more respectable than lying about a fuckig bowling alley.
Plus, jay is there, live every night.
Could the same thing be going on with Robin and the whole health issue was either made up or greatly exaggerated??
[h=3]From today's Wall Street Journal. The cuts were part of Comcast's ongoing budget cutting efforts but Howard is to stupid to admit that. Also, if I can find this info on Dave taking a salary cut, why cantbhis researchers?
By CHRISTOPHER S. STEWART[/h]Friday's layoffs at NBC's "The Tonight Show" come as late-night talk shows on broadcast television are facing increasingly tough competition from cable shows.
NBC laid off about two dozen staffers from the late-night show last week as part of a budget-cutting effort, according to a person familiar with the situation.
Other people accepted salary cuts, most notably the show's host, Jay Leno, who reportedly earned between $20 million and $25 million before taking a "significant" salary cut to save other jobs on the line at the show, the person said.
"Jay's foremost concern is for the wonderful people who work for 'The Tonight Show.' He did what was necessary to ensure their well-being," said Mr. Leno's agent, Bruce Bobbins.
The layoffs reduced the staff of the show to just under 200, according to the person. NBC is a unit of NBCUniversal, which is majority-owned by Comcast Corp. CMCSA -0.35%
The costs of "The Tonight Show" grew in the fall of 2009 when the network shifted it to 10 p.m. in an effort to buoy NBC's prime-time audience, the person said.
But the experiment foundered, and the show was moved back to the original 11:30 p.m. time slot—while retaining the higher budget, until now.
Meanwhile, late-night broadcast audiences are increasingly splintering in the face of challenges from the Web and cable shows like "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" onViacom Inc.'s VIAB 0.00% Comedy Central.
"There is no dominant late- night king anymore," said Brad Adgate, head researcher for Horizon Media.
"The Tonight Show" continues to be the top-rated show in late night, although its average total audience between last September and early August fell to 3.7 million from 3.9 million in the year-earlier period, according to Nielsen data provided by NBC. Similarly, the "Late Show With David Letterman" on CBS Corp.'s CBS +0.33% namesake network dropped to some 3 million average total viewers from 3.4 million a year earlier, while "The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson," also on CBS, lost viewers as well.
But Mr. Stewart's show drew an average of 2.1 million viewers, up 5% from the year before, according to the same Nielsen data. "The Colbert Report," also on Comedy Central, saw its average audience grow to 1.5 million, up 7% from a year earlier.
"The Tonight Show" isn't the only late-night program to undergo cost cutting. In recent years, CBS cut the licensing fees it pays to the company that produces the "Late Show," and as a result, Mr. Letterman took a salary cut, according to people familiar with the situation.
Thankyou Mr.Higgins, this won't be the first nor the last time we will have been had
