    :facepalm:
    ......Very popular Sirius shows that feature Howard Stern have done very well to keep the subscriber base tuning in to the company's service. The number of subscribers who listen to the uncensored shows on Howard Stern's channels is not crystal clear, but he previously had approximately 12 million listeners on terrestrial radio before joining Sirius XM. His long-term affiliation with Sirius XM is a big plus for the company, as the firm spends a lot of money for his channels.

    An estimated 60% of Sirius XM users have been listening to his highly controversial shows. Since Sirius XM has more than 25.8 million subscribers, that is a substantial amount of viewers for the company. However, that's not all. Sirius XM is constantly adding more live events, music shows, and concerts to its programming line-up and keeping its large subscriber base highly engaged......

    "Highly Controversial Shows"? Evolved Stern is more bland than the "Today Show" and sucks more celebrity ass than "Access Hollywood".

    Like Howard, at one point in time, Motley Fool used to be relevant and the king of their field. And also like Howard, they are a shell of themselves and irrelevant.

    How did potential become the reality? Like, I could watch America's Got Talent. I have a television. I have the potential.
    That doesn't mean I'm 1 viewer out of 300 million viewers of AGT.

    Except they won't because they are actually gonna do a SHOW ON FRIDAY. Not to mention it is gonna be another "Super Show" with a red carpet and surprise guests. Can you imagine what kind of fluff and promotion Wiggy would demand to just do a fun show like this? 6 months minimum WUS nonstop ass kissing and for it to be on a Friday they'd have to pay him just like SiriusXM stupidly did with the Birthday Bash debacle.

    And we gotta listen to Howard Stern brag about it tomorr...

    Oh wait. We don't. Because he does 112 shows a year by his contract and counts stuff like Billy Joel as a show, the fraud.

    That crap really pisses me off. Wiggy's show was way more edgy when the FCC was up in his asshole.
