    As soon as the call started with Bobo and General Hospital, I wondered what would be the real motive behind "prank calling" this sycophant and entrapping him in a situation that would have him banned from the show for months? This doesn't feel like a joke or a bit, it feels like something done intentionally in order to keep this sycophant away from the Howard Stern Show, the thing he loves more than life itself. Now he is subject to SHAME! from the stern universe, but who or why he is off the show for is another question, just seems like their could be more to this......

    Today was one of the worst show's in Howard Stern Show History.

    This BoBo bit was one of the worst fake bits in the history of ANY FUCKING SHOW.

    I don't think it was a bit. It wasn't that funny. My guess is that BoBo has done something similar to this in the past and they wanted to catch him at it again and make it a bit since there isn't anyone on the show who can actually write something funny.

    Howard builds his career using and abusing wackpackers. Howard then punishes wackpackers for using the show to get a little something for themselves.

    Fuck Howard.

    Wigward had an intern call Bobo and told him that he could be on General Hospital if he said "General Hospital" 5times on the air of the Stern show. They spent the next hour berating and replaying the call while they (with Ralph) decided on a punishment and it was to ban him for 15 shows which is till September 21. Fucking lame.

    The point was for Howard to repeatedly mention that THSS will be on the air live a grand total of 15 times over the next 3 months.

    Sounds more like a staged bit cause wiggys getting a hand out for General Hostpital plugs. Didnt they do a bit a while back where the midget was auditioning for that show?

    WTF? That's not even a "bit." That's just stupid.
    Why would they need to punish him?
    This is only funny in the mind of a complete and total maniac.
    He just loves to hurt people, doesn't he?
    Fuck him.

    Yes - agreed. Stern has used this method to deliver bad news in the past. He creates a situation where he can then, in passing, mention something that will be perceived negatively by the audience. Then later on he can say, "Robin, I said that a million times already".

    Although Bobo is annoying, he's not so stupid to fall for this. Just like the bit about it being the end of the world. This was all a pre-planned bit - so Howard could deliver the bad news about live shows for the rest of the summer.

    How sad when the "writing staff" spends more effort on creatively helping the boss deliver bad news to the paying audience, rather than actually making the show funny.

    When people say, how come you're not a fan of Howard anymore - this is why. He pisses on his audience.

    I think some people are reading in to this too much.

    I can clear it all up very simply.

    Why did they do this.... because they have nothing better to do. Howard will do anything to kill time on the air.

    Welcome to the Howard Stern Show - The Sirius Years.

    When I think about it, this seems like a very plausible way to let everyone know about the number of shows that are left. But like domina said the schedule has been this way for 4 years, maybe it's because they think fans aren't so aware of everything because AGT is heading into live shows/Summer/End of Contract/etc. But everyone should know this by now, cause this shit is clockwork every fucking summer. Ironically this is around the same time I start taking joy in hating Beff.
