You haters said Howard would be off this week. I've got two words for ya....Suck It!

Is it live or is it Memorex?
Howeed, did you see America's Gawt Talent!?!? Da show is so awful witout yous!
It's always fun reminiscing about Wiggy's triumphant debut on AGT:
HOWARD STERN DEBUT DOESN’T BOOST ‘AMERICA’S GOT TALENT’ RATINGS
DESPITE THE HYPE SURROUNDING STERN'S DEBUT, THE SHOW'S RATINGS ARE DOWN MORE THAN 15 PERCENT FROM LAST YEAR.

Over the past week it has felt like Howard Stern was everywhere. The self-proclaimed “King of All Media” was doing his best to make that title sing in the lead-up to his debut as a judge on “America’s Got Talent,” by doing a rare publicity swing of talk shows and feature interviews.
He was excited and he wanted America to be excited, and by the looks of the blanket ads, billboards and promotional stunts, NBC clearly thought that adding the controversial shock jock to the mix on the family-friendly show was going to be big news. Stern did his part
, delivering a warmer, fuzzier version of his outrageous radio persona on Monday night’s two-hour debut and earning almost universal praise
for his playful, personal touch.
The ratings, however, were another matter. According to overnight figures from Nielsen, Monday’s show was seen by 10.3 million viewers and earned a 3.6 rating, which was solid, but meant that viewership was down 33 percent (from 15.3 million) and ratings fell 16 percent from last year’s debut (4.3).
All hail the "Stern effect".
What's that you say?
In the car later, I'll check it out.
Are you implying Midwestern housewives weren't tuning into see the $100k John Varvatos wardrobe?
I'm eagerly awaiting the first ratings numbers to come in for Cowell's debut. I'm sure they'll be down 15% from last season just like when Wiggy took over.
You have to love how Cowell kept all the other stiffs besides Stern on the judging panel for this first season, just so a direct 'apples to apples' ratings comparison could be made between him and the Wigged Wonder.
Hilarious that afterwards he never mentioned ratings ever again
I wonder how much Howard pays her to call in and read what they send her...
I know this is a mult account but fuck it........... It's pretty fucking pitiful and speaks volumes about the show that Wiggy doing an unexpected live show is considered a victory and a triumph over the "haters".
Is djenkins the foot fetish freak from SFN?
His unpaid interns who scour this site and Twitter probably told Marci fans like me said howard would go into hiding this month. Lol
AGT was the biggest failure of Howard's career by far.
His books made a killing, he dominated terrestrial, Sirius/XM went from 2 million to 30 million subscribers during his tenure, even his movie, which gets slammed here, was a moderate success in that it broke even despite being released at the same time as the Star Wars rereleases in 1997.
AGT is the fly in the ointment
He did a rare tweet earlier in the wk abut The Bachelorette which I don't know if it was planned or not. However he really got hammered in the responses. Have to see if he does damage control, or does not discuss it like everything else.
