    When you break down what Sirius is paying for the Stern show and what we are getting it is quite shocking.

    Here is the math.

    Howard's renewed contract with Sirius was reported at $80 million per year (not including Howard TV). Lets assume that covers all salaries and operating expenses for the entire show. They are scheduled to do 122 live shows in 2012. That comes out to $655,737 per show. This is for live content from 6:00am-10:00am and the wrap up show.

    Fast forward to this week. The Stern show has been off the air for 2+ weeks. Howard has said that most of the staff still works when they aren't live. That means the staff had over 2 weeks to write bits, create contests, make phoney phone calls, book guests, do interviews, write jokes, etc.

    Howard then comes back this week to do 2 whole shows for a total of $1,311,475 and this is the gem we get (from Marksfriggin.com).

    I don't understand, what does the staff do. Come in and eat Crumbs cupcakes all morning. There is no show preparation because the show is crap.

    Move the decimal to right after the first 1, and we might be close.

    Tim Sabean, Howard Stern and Gary Dell'Abate need to hire two comedy writers for the show.
    New ideas, new blood, new perspectives, shake things up.
    Weren't Howard and Goose discussing competition in regards to Sanchez and Tebow.... light a fire under the asses of the current staff "comedy writers."

    I forgot the show was even live until now. I was just loading up another episode of the impression week special on my mp3 player when it hit me that the show is live again.

    I'm not sure if I even care. I might just stick with the impression week.

    There's no money in the budget - Howard's just an employee. They promised to make him partner but they screwed him so now there's no money left. Sorry.

    Try and wrap your head around the idea of Howard being paid $150,000 per hour.

    One hour.

    Four years of college for his brat daughter.
    A small home in Kansas for his redneck employee
    Health care coverage for 30 employees
    A year of service from Minnie Driver

    You forgot to factor in whatever Howard is being paid to rig AGT.

    If that's true, Stern is a scumbag of the highest order. And it smells true.

    The Obama call was pretty amusing until it ran out of steam and then became a plug for AGT just like everything else on the show now.

    But how was the Obama call the result of something the Stern Show did? It was all due to the impersonator, who did a nice job.
