    Gave up Howard in 2014 because he sounded bored, he was consumed by AGT, the interviews were endless and he was just mailing it in.

    I was riding to work in a friend's car on Friday morning, and he had H100 on. Howard sounded bored, his jokes were lame, and then some guy called in to say that he loves Robin's cans. The same Robin who is obese, wears a bad wig and is nearly 64 years old. I found the show stale and boring and I was very grateful when he changed the channel to something else.

    Howard has been mailing it in for a long time now. I still listen. It's like a bad accident, when you drive by you have to look.

    I cancel XM every 5 months to take advantage of their 5 months for 30 offer. I always give Howard Stern as the reason and the rep always laughs cuz I don't even get 100/101 on XM unless i wanna pay extra.

    You're too good. I can't even stand his voice anymore. Never thought that could happen.

    I bailed in 2011. We've dissected it a million times and a million ways here, but simply put: Howard ceased to be consistently funny or compelling.

    I just think it boggles all our minds that allegedly somebody still wants to pay him all that money for such dreck.

    I told those tards to send me my new account in the mail , so I could send a Cheque for the year -$120 for premium( 4months ago) I still haven't received it and they shut my service off lol
    Great company
    The card I had got changed for the new chip security and the back digits changed... I'm not giving them my new card info
    This is probably hurting those fools

    I usually hate the show but have to listen due to a long commute to work, this week was pretty decent. Him busting on Jeff the Drunk for jerking off on periscope was uncomfortably funny. I agree about the Robin shit though. I'm pretty sure those songs make her go to her empty home and weep, as she dries her eyes with hundred dollar bills.

    I could listen to Jeff every day. The rest of those assholes are useless, but Jeff is the tits. Maybe just because his life fascinates me.

    I stopped listening when they first announced AGT. I was pissed at myself for waited that long. There was absolutely no reason to listen once Artie was gone.
    If dickhead accidentally says something interesting, it will be posted here. If not, who cares?

    One could argue that the whole move to Sirius was him mailing it in. His immediate thought was to go on cruise control and just let everyone follow him into the abyss of mediocrity. I still subscribe, but not for him. I still very much like the music channels and the access to MLB games and their radio network.

    $3.70 a share and has barely traded above the $4 buck mark in the last 5 years. :hilarious:

    Listening to the occasional YouTube clip posted here is all the reminder I need the show is a complete waste of time.
