    For me, just doing these few things would get the show back on track

    1. Fill the Jackie/Artie chair. For the love of God put a funny, hetrosexual man in there. ANYONE in that chair would make the show better. My choice would be a guy like Bill Burr, who knows how to get in and out on a topic, but at this point putting Carrot Top in would improve the show...

    2. Put on 4 shows a week. Hell, do what the talk shows do and do two shows on Wed. And tape the 2nd one if you have to, its the perfect time to do a long-form interview, tape it and play it on Thursday. Or do a taped show where they play some classic bits and comment on them, that would be interesting and funny.

    Ok, what says the Shed, what needs to be done to un-fuck the show?

    Few things that will NEVER happen: less commercials, more work, new additions to on air talent.

    Sorry Dr. Frankenstein, the Howard Stern Show is one corpse that can never be revived again.

    Stern's time has passed. The entertainment world has changed so much that you couldn't create the same magic if you wanted to. What was shocking in .92 is yawn inducing in 2015.

    Gracefully retiring and disowning the abomination that is AGT would save a little bit of his soul, but there is no saving the show.

    This is like saying: What could Motley Crue do to put out another hit record? Nothing. It is over. Howard is a full blown unfunny emo p.c. faggot and the return of Jackie, Billy, Artie, John, KC, Gorrilo, AJ Benza, Jessica Hahn, Mike Walker, Beetlejuice and/or the HTV crew will not change that. It's over Johnny.

    The ship sailed. The evolved Wigward is an irrelevant has been that was a once was for a limited time years ago. But The Jesus Twins (even the dead one) would make a funny segment.

    You know, I read your show summaries and think "wow, that show sucked" then I listen to the actual show and it's WAY funnier than your review. Not hilarious like the old days but still way funnier than your reviews.

    Get together with Artie secretly and plan an on air feud, where they go off on each other daily (like 90's Howard would) and play tiny clips from each other's shows in order to drive up subscriptions for both. They could go as low as they want to about each other, then tell their celebrity friends that its all a big hoax, but they're letting them in on the secret 'cause they're cool - shhhhh.

    Howard putting a .357 in his mouth, far past the molars, and pulling the trigger during the news.

    Make it dirty, honey.
