    Now that ETA is dead and Hanzi is banned Bobo and Maryann have really taken on a big part of the show providing filler for Howard before the celebrity interview.

    I know Howsrd isn't motivated anymore but even he has to eventually get bored with these two kissing his ass with nothing to say. Are we going to endure another 5 years of the Bobo & Maryann podcast or will Howard move on from these 2?

    Unfortunatly he will never get sick of the ass lathering ego stroke these two no life assholes give him. He needs to be told how great he is almost as much as he needs his marbles (I did say almost). What did Hanzi do to get banned. I didn't hear about that.

    You forgot Wendy. He won't call her the retard anymore but he still makes fun of her. She's good for filler on slow days.
    Maybe he will evolve more and she'll be "around."

    He mentioned Marci Turk a few times, I don't think he's officially banned tho.

    Howard is an entity beyond our comprehension. Accept it and embrace it.

    Remember the Stern show mantra, "Keep Howard happy." It's not keep Howard funny, or interesting or entertaining. And why would Howard want to deal with anything unpleasant when he "hits it out of the park" with a 20 minute discussion of Beth's book with Bobo?

    If you were intentionally trying to make a performer perform poorly you would create an environment like that at the Howard Stern Show. No ratings, no pressure, no criticism, huge financial reward regardless of performance. Here's to 5 more years of devolution.

    Hanzi was banned for 30 days last August for mentioning Marci turk's name in a call. In September once the ban was over he pissed off Howard by calling him Imus.

    I agree with this statement. There are no checks and balances in place. He has no motivation to do a good job.
    A few years ago I inherited a sales team that had a grossly inflated base salary and hardly any commission; as a result the numbers were down and the team had no urgency to go close deals.
    One of the first things I did was restructure their salary. I shook off the lazy slobs who were doing nothing, and those that wanted to stay on suddenly began being productive.
    Howard has no incentive to do a good job.

    Yeah, Hanzi's "around". Whatever, anyone who thinks that the show is anything that even approaches "good" anymore really has no entertainment options in their life.

    Wendy I can't give you money.

    Wendy did you get fucked in the ass by the entire Oakland raider football team?

    Yes


    Wendy did you assassinate Robin Williams?

    Yes


    Ok Gary, give Wendy $2 from the petty cash drawer

    To me the Hanzi ban just shows Howard has zero motivation to do quality radio on any level anymore.

    He called you Imus and you ban him from the fucking show for good?

    I think it goes deeper than that. Wig knows that EVERYBODY hates the guts of both of those imbeciles. He picks up their calls specifically because he hates his fans. So, every time you hear "Bobo, you're on the air", feel those warm droplets of piss trickling down the back of your neck and over your face.

    1. Listening to Maryann talk a mile a minute while Fred plays a crow sound effect. I laugh so hard some mornings, I have to pull my car to the side of the road.
    2. Bobo talking about his safe driving awards and driving tips. I sit in the parking lot at work until they hang up on Bobo. Riveting.
    3. Nothing better than Howard talking to Wendy dumpster diving for food and going into graphic detail on her crapping her pants and getting rescued by a homeless guy. The Revolution is now.

    He banned him because he IS just like Imus and has done several things that he goofed on the I-man for back in the day. He's Hmus.

    Ever since Howard moved to Sirius he's openly shown disdain for his fans (Piss on my fans). He often says he hates and doesn't give a fuck what his 'fans' think.

    1. The tax shelter money laundering scheme "charity"? Check.

    2. The lazy autopilot broadcasts? Check

    3. Turning his entire on-air entourage into a contest to see who can suck his Dick better? Check

    Putting his wife over incessantly on the air and wasting time and money on her "Career"...check.

    One thing though, Imus actually gets guests that are interesting. Hmus has lazy celebrities getting tongue latherings and marshmallow fests.

    He loved the fans until 2010 when Fox started showing interest in him to possibly work on Idol as a judge which was his dream job. Shortly after that the Malibu pool parties at Kimmel's house happened and Marci replaced Tim Sabean.

    That's how we got Hollywood Howie.

    Hmus? Lol


    Deidre Imus and Beth do look alike and are basically the same person. Even Howard is starting to look like Imus.
