    The month of December and first half of January are high rent weeks for holiday parties and venues can charge outrageous rates. Obviously Sirius didn't want to pay the big bucks since they booked his party at the very end of January, weeks after the actual date. It's kinda funny and insulting when you think about it.

    Yeah you are right
    It has nothing to do with THE SUPER BOWL & of course rents in NYC will be so minimal the weekend of THE SUPER BOWL

    :facepalm:


    You did not think that through at all, did you?

    ;)

    I honestly can't remember how old he is. This is just a regular old-guy-a-year-older birthday, right? Other shows have mentioned him getting a party and laughing when folks call in about getting tickets. The "regular folks" are being kept away, much like the Christmas parties Wiggy has.

    Sirius has been waiting 7 years for the lazy wigged fuck to take his show on the road.
    It seems like only yesterday AGT was king and Sirius was his 2nd job...Robin...:jj:

    A caller on the WUS asked how long they've been planning this. Gary said he thought they started back in April, Hein thought it was even earlier. Most likely neither is being truthful, it doesn't seem like they have most of the details worked out and don't even know who they're inviting. Then again, the staff is so incompetent and lazy it's possible they really have been planning that long. I think they're just trying to disguise the fact that it's really a Super Bowl party Howard hijacked into a tribute to himself.

    Gary said on the WUS they got kimmel on for the show when he was out there over the summer. So he agreed to it prior to Howard ruining Molly and Jimmy's wedding. Wonder if he could back out of it or wiggy has him contracted in.

    The idea must have evolved from SiriusXM execs trying to convince Gary to get involved with the Super Bowl promotion and since Howard has avoided it for the first 7 years of the contract they came up with the idea of making it appear to be about him to get him to cooperate.

    The whole "I have to give all the credit to Gary" thing is to get out infront of if it is shit.
    Suddenly the 900 hours a week on the show he spends doesn't have anything to do with planning that event.

    Or it could be he wants to give credit to Gary to help him on his next production gig. I for the life of me don't see him continuing on Sirus, unless they are just playing repeats of old shows and in that case they don't need Gary really and this tribute bash is the perfect launch for that.

    I can't believe they have been planning this since April and they still cannot announce the place or guests. There has been a big on-air promo push on all the other stations for the Howard Stern show.
