    Despite the overall quality of the Stern Show these days, many people still seem to think he's a great interviewer because he "gets people to say things they wouldn't say elsewhere". But it seems in every interview he answers his own questions, guessing the answer of the one being interviewed and speaking for them---and he's always wrong. Just my opinion, thanks for your time.

    He actually is pretty good at it considering he has a loud mouth like Robin interrupting every 5 seconds.

    Anyone these days can be a great interviewer with a production staff. The Show format allows him more time and freedom than most other media venues.

    Half the time the Wig doesn't even let the guest talk . He gets a list of shit from Will and Jason and blurts shit out . So realy he blows .
    If you want to hear a real interview check out Ron Bennington.

    He sucks.

    His facts are wrong and he doesn't let guests get out their answers. Just talks over them with his personal psycho babble.

    Did I mention he sucks? Because he does.

    He's still the best... but really there is nothing but shills shit out there anyway... So he's the best of the shitty interviewers.

    Howard's recent interviews have been lazy - the same 10 fucking boilerplate questions.

    I heard the Jay-z interview this morning from 2010 before AGT and the Malibu pool parties with Jimmy and Molly - y'know back when he gave a shit and it was really good.

    He's terrible and lately he seems to be in such a rush that he steps all over the person he's interviewing.

    The interviews are supposed to be Howards big trump card now and excuse for putting zero energy into the rest of the show. That said the recent interviews last 3-5 months have been lazy it's "how do you not fall in love with your co-star" bs.

    It also doesn't help that for all his A-list ass kissing very few A-listers actually like Howard and are willing to do his show hence the 27th Adam Levine interview.

    The person he is interviewing has to be interesting. Howie can't or refuses to make dull people interesting anymore. IMO

    Howard has a stack of research cards and simply asks a question about each, then interjects his own insecurities and foibles into the answers.

    He used to ask stupidly outrageous questions that were at least a little uncomfortable for the guest and got them to go to places they normally wouldn't go. Now, it's just kinda boring.
