    Howard said Sirius has been asking him to do something big and now that he is doing it, they're not using it to promote. Howard said this is the best thing to happen to Sirius and you'd think that they'd ask him to do something for him. He said they should do everything they can to encourage him to do a show but they do nothing. Howard said he has no dialog with anyone there anyway.

    Howard will never understand that more than 80% of SiriusXM's subs come from car sales, advertising on a show aimed at retards isn't going to do them any good especially when the audience for the show is declining.

    In other words, Howard wants to have things his way like a spoiled little Hamptonite that he is.

    The Sirius promotion would not generate anything of note, but Stern has no shame. Sirius is already airing his show, which for the most part is just an AGT wrap up show - in addition, the company had to spend thousands of dollars to defend his ridiculous lawsuit and now he wants it to promote AGT to help him get a bonus from that program.

    How selfish of Sirius not to want to promote Howard's other project for which he's getting 15 mil.

    I believe he tries to use Sirius to promote the shitty AGT. How many mentions does Sirius get when he does that show?

    Howard's contract stipulates that he gets a bonus for every person that flips through the channels and happens to land on AGT.

    To this day, I laugh my ass off when Bloobin was interviewed by Sirius 100 news before AGT's premiere as she fed Howard's delusion and made the comment....

    ....."Howard's going to be big"....big fail on that one.....

    :jj:

    Throughout that embarrassing media junket and all those interviews, how many times did Howard take the opportunity to promote his radio gig - or conversationally steer the interviewer into discussing it? Especially after that kamikaze legal money grab immediately after renewing his contract and subsequent bashing of the company, it's just delusional for him to think that they'd even toss him a life raft if he were drowning.

    Those ungrateful bastards!!! Howard has accepted a $15 million dollar deal to do AGT where he has turned his radio show into a four hour long AGT informercial to try to drive up ratings for AGT which not only does Sirius not get a dime for advertising, but they are paying Howard millions to shill another project that they get nothing for. In return, Howard never mentions Sirius on AGT and the only mentions they get is if they buy commercial time on the show.

    I don't know how Sirius can't see they are huge winners in this deal. They lose subscribers while Howard shills a stupid talent contest and he makes millions off AGT without promoting his day job. They should be giving Howard a bonus for this. Howard should sue.

    Oh he gets it. He just thinks his audience are mindless robots like Bobo and Maryann who won't get it. Howard has spent his career portraying himself as the victim rallying against evil corporations and the FCC which all tried to censor him. Many times he would use this image to gain leverage against Infinity, KROQ, WNBC, etc. on pure financial issues.

    Now that he is no longer has any FCC regulations to make those two entities the enemy, he needs manufacture his victim status to turn the screws into Sirius.

    BTW, I love the Jon Hein spin on the ratings.

    "Well, if you add this night, that night, and the other night, AGT has 20 million households which might be the highest rated show in the history of television."
