    I've noticed that the shows are no longer on Howard 100 and Howard 101. Now, they are called the "Howard Stern Channels". I heard this on the promo for the Imbeded with HPE. This is consisetne with the back ground changing of the "set". Now it says HS everywhere.

    I don't know why they are rebranding - but it's definitely a conscious effort to avoid promoting 100/101.

    Also - last week sometime some new writer/intern for the show came in to talk about a "Killing Kittens" sex party he attended in NYC. It was actually a good segment. But as soon as he started to tell his story about attending I immediately thought of the Artie story with Artie jetting jizzed on his Giants sweatshirt.

    Eventually Howard asked Benjy - "Hey Benjy, didn't this happen to you once?" only to have Benjy "remind" Howard that it happened to Artie.

    It was obvious that Howard used Benjy as a vehicle to bring up Artie's story - without having to say Artie's name. Howard must have some reason for intentially avoiding Artie.

    I think they are leaving out the channel numbers on all chanel promos because of how the new phone app works
    They will probably change how new car radios work.

    When he was famous and had fans he didn't need to throw his name on everything (the WUS is now the Howard Stern WUS) for recognition. Now he does.

    Howard doesn't want to be associated with Artie
    He makes him look bad
    He's not mainstream
    And Howard doesn't want to appear to have anything to do with his upcoming OD

    Artie makes Howard seem like a mysogist shock jock, that's why he is not allowed on the show. Nothing to do with Artie wellbeing.

    Every two seconds on wrap up show to the point I stop listening. That and daily polls trying to drive traffic to hs.com. I think I see his plan for future.

    Either it's my mood this week or the shows are fucking terrible. I've been stuck at work all weekend and they keep replaying at nauseum the same 4 interviews. 2 of them are from years ago. And also that shitty boring HPE embedded. Jesus Christ. I can't believe Sirius hasn't stepped in and started to program the channels themselves. How hard is it to just replay 24 straight of Stern Tapes. It would be nice to mix it up on the weekend of Thursday to Sunday. Holy Fucking Shit.

    Also. I love how Howard is rewriting history of being a helicopter parent. To Robin and Howard telling stories about actors and TV shows and neither can remember a name. This show is just raping my ears and brain this week. Please dear Lord.... Please make Sirius to give Howard his walking papers.

    The PC Clay Aiken interview was also a ear rape.

    I'm mad as hell.

    Do they even run the promos of Howard gloating about how the revolution will be uncensored and jam packed with free speech anymore?

    the real reason Artie is not allowed on the show is because Artie mother might have threatened to sue Howard for encouraging Artie drug use part of the show.

    I think they would get rid of 101 if anything when he leaves Sirius/XM and just lets them use his name for a rerun channel . What are all the zombies going to do when the Gunk does the final fuck over ? At least the rest of us woke up to his trick fucks .

    The final trick fuck will be a once a week interview show with a guest and the Gunk . He will probably keep Will , Jason and Gary for production and JD as an assistant. Everyone else " will be around " . He thinks he is a great interviewer now that the general public likes the new " evolved " Wig Man. Blobin will go off to retire along with Fred . He will just do the one day a week show to keep his name on the channel for a pay day and offer even less content . He will probably go to only airing suck ass Hollywood interviews from old shows and cut out all the wild non-PC stuff. Get ready for the revolution. LOL
