    This had to be the worst Howard Stern show in history. It took some serious patience to get through. It started with Howard raving about a routine and hackneyed schtick by Will Ferrell lamely introducing some basketball players, using innocuous kindergarten nicknames. And then it plummeted so far down below mediocrity into downright tedium. Boundless AGT drivel, endless chatter about clothing or something; it was just horrible and absolutely humorless. Not even a PRETENSE of trying to be funny. Oh, and Howard bravely arguing with a a tape of a fucking Tradio guy, trying valiantly to feel superior. The only moderately interesting thing was about 3 minutes of the hoarders guy interview.

    I later realized that the ONLY time I smiled through the entire 4 hours was when they played a little clip of Jon Stewart calling Limbaugh a "terrible person". Stewart's act is kind of tired in its own right, and I had already seen that episode, and it's hardly even any kind of JOKE, but it was the only time I smiled through that long, brutish episode of a show I've been tuned in to for 3 decades.

    This has to be it. How can it get any worse?

    "Listen Robin, that show had no ratings at all til I got there. They owe ME for the whatever success we have had. My lawyers tell me have a good case."

    I'm in no hurry to listen to any more shows. For me this is a HUGE change. I haven't intentionally missed an episode in years.

    (I don't listen any longer and rarely visit marksfriggin; my Stern news comes from here), but, I would think that Marbles attempting to spin a tanking talent show would be pretty interesting. Of course, in an era where Dubya Bush was President for 8 years and crap music rules the airwaves I don't have any confidence that the public will reject a neutered Marbles; I fear that Mr & Mrs Peoria will buy into his steppin and fetchin and say "he ain't such a bad guy after all". But if he does fail I might start to listen again.

    HOW can it get any worse??? :rolleye: you kidding?
    wait til the actual AGT show starts! u thought we were tortured listening to American Idol chatter? the Bachelor ? DWTS?
    This is going to be SHEER TORTURE! :facepalm:

    YOU FORGOT....Howard asking Robin..."DID YOU HEAR (insert any knucklehead) ON YESTERDAYS WRAP UP SHOW????" "HERE LET ME PLAY THE CLIP FROM THE WUS "

    This week it was the same conversation about "Voice FRY"...playing the CLIPS from the Bachelor over and over for 2 fucking days????
    btw....listening to the interview (or therapy session) with Whitney Cummings?? SHE HAS VOICE FRY! anyone hear the interview with LIsaG???? SHE talked just like
    that Bachelor chick and Howard doesn't notice???

    This WAS the worst week EVER! Tim S. should just play the FIRST YEAR ON SIRIUS...the best year!
    let Howard & Co. take a much needed vacation!

    One thing I was surprised on WEds...Howard ended the show saying...
    "C U Next Tuesday" !!!;) NO! he didn't say the "C"word...he said "CU NEXT TUESDAY" which means Monday off ...another 5 day mini vacation!
    At least he's being upfront telling his fans the schedule!!!! good for him !

    I'm hanging in there for the summer!
    then I might be ending my 24yr love affair (and obsession) with the show!
    Howard caters to his new younger dumber Twitter audience! The new fans who post over at that "eh eh eh " site we USED TO LOVE !"

    thank you

    peace & love

    I was stunned they revisted the baby clothes stuff with Shuli. I mean that bit was two years ago, right?

    Let me pile on the whole AGT thing and how it will get a lot worse. I thought when they hired the nutless one they were trying to get a "Simon-like" character who would rip the especially bad talent to shreds. But all indications are Howchie's going to be the "nice" one like J-HO. It's like Leno hiring a no-talent fake stuttering guy to be an ANNOUNCER for half a ml per year. An ANNOUNCER?

    Visualize Howard talking about IDOL and now visualize how AGT will be the ONLY thing he talks about. Like Jim Lahey, I don't know how the immasculated public will take it but us true fans will be jumping off the roofs like it was 1929.

    Is there any way to get posts on 'ignore' to take up less space?
