    Many people took Howard's recent efforts as a sign that he was done with AGT and focusing on the Sirius show. Clearly, that is not the case. I believe he is trying to set things up so he can have even LESS involvement. Get other staff members air time, etc. This way he can devote his time to AGT, and the show can be on auto-pilot (even more than it is now). I think he may be delusional enough that he thinks he can develop a "brand" where he will have H100 and H101, and not have to put on his own show. Just run repeats and shitty other shows. Wait, isn't that what we have now?

    Howard's goal is an Oprah deal with Sirius. Own channel, but only do 1 live show a month.
    The rest: tapes, AGT replays and other filler.

    I don't get the recent effort, he's only got a couple more years. Maybe he's trying to make sure the staff can look good to management and actually get jobs at the end.

    That's just it. HE may only have a couple more years. But he wants the marbles to keep coming in without doing any work (a la Oprah as mentioned above). This may be him trying to lay the groundwork for something that would survive after him (hint: it won't).

    more likely to show liberty media that his staff is working five days a week so howard can justify not coming up with benefits for them out of his pocket since he only works three days a week

    Well, if Howard is looking to retire from broadcasting and live as a producer or exec, he's going to fail. All of his projects outside of his sutton behind a microphone have failed miserably. Private parts was as close as he's come and that's only because he self promoted. Ask an industry professional about where private parts ranks as a movie and it'll be far below average, both in production value and in overall revenues.

    on top of that, there's that little brand messaging problem that he has, namely thy the Howard stem bran has gone from favorable to highly unfavorable due to the possum on his fans factor and te blatant exposé of his madoff-like ponzu scheme to first force a merger aand bilk listeners out f cash and then sue his employer and bilk Sirius out of cash. The Howard stern brand image is shit.

    agt 2.0 is going to be another failure in howies part. He will own the bad ratings and it'll produce more photos and cuts for us to use in humiliating him.

    Agreed. But I don't think that will stop him from trying.

    Yup. He is looking for an annuity. Unfortunately H100/101 have failed with his 3 day a week presence. They won't survive without it. The only legitimate hires have left - Bubba and Ferrall.

    Spin Spin Spin Spin. in the next couple of weeks you will be hearing....... talks broke down (allegedly) due to Howard wanting to keep production on the East Coast and/or Howard wants a raise from last year and NBC can't do. Reality is ratings SUCKED for NBC and even the Emperor Has No Clothes execs at NBC would NEVER have him back at anything close to the salary he was getting. This is how everyone saves face by pretending he's coming back and then having negotiations break down. Howie aint coming back to AGT because NBC dont want Howie back. End of story.

    I know.....but there has been a flurry of staff meetings and new, albeit shitty, programming (Back Office Radio) since he finished AGT. Also, Howard Stern the Broadway Musical.

    I don't think even Howard is dumb enough to announce he Agt deal without it being solid. He'll spin his lower salary and lower ratings, sure, but I highly doubt the deal will fall trough. Howard and NBC have probably already inked the deal and put it behind them. Howard will act as if he's still works out the details, but that's all artificial filler material and utter bullshit.

    In my defense, I did put it in quotes. But you know what I mean: those stupid meetings where he rents rooms, Mulva, big foot jr and shuli in studio, mystery writer next to benji, etc. And yes, having just typed that, I realize how pathetic it is to refer to it as "effort".

    You are very wrong. The people that want him back are the same ones that brought him there in the first place. It's kinda like "a lie told often enough becomes truth". No one involved in this clusterfuck wants to admit it was a disaster. So, it is in everyone's best interest to keep pretending it was a smashing success.

    Didn't we learn that the mystery writer was comedian Mike Morse? I saw that in another thread.

    Guys, it's very simple: Malone is coming! And Karmazin is out. Malone doesn't fuck around and doesn't kiss Stern's feet like Karmazin did.

    This is why the staff has to write a report about what they do for the channels.

    This report didn't come from Howard, as he claimed, it came from Sirius/Liberty. Howard said the request came from him because he doesn't want to show people that Liberty's in charge.

    Malone will start cutting staff as soon as January.
