    Well they did lock him out of the house he claimed to build. He was off TV for awhile before HTV started.

    Innovative Programming in the Early 1990s
    Using the knowledge about cable television, demographics, and celebrity publicity and exposure he gained while working at MTV, Masters began his turnaround of Movietime.

    The new chief executive officer's first decision was to rename the cable television network E! Entertainment Television Inc. Masters's second move was to change the programming completely. Since Americans are generally in awe of film, radio, and television celebrities, Masters decided to develop programs that would provide those celebrities with significant exposure, but in a way they could control. Thus the audience would get to see celebrities, and celebrities would maintain a certain amount of control over their exposure to the public.

    This strategy of "controlled publicity" first took the form of talk shows and entertainment news that was filled with "star-studded" celebrities. Without much money to work with, Masters approached the controversial and provocative radio show host and celebrity Howard Stern and convinced Stern to allow E! Entertainment to install robotic video cameras that taped the radio show and all of Stern's antics while on and off the air.

    Stern agreed to Masters's proposal, and E! Entertainment got excellent programming material of one and one-half hours per day at the bargain basement rate of $33,000 per episode, plus a cool $1 million in compensation to Stern. Within a few months of its introduction on E! Entertainment, the "Howard Stern Show" was the cable television's hottest and highest rated program.

    Wiggy was the big show on E in the early days.
    In the NYC area E wasn't even a full time channel to most people.
    back in the old days channels were shared....as we walked to school in 2 feet of snow to avoid the colored Negros....right Robin.

    agreed, but why would anyone be interested in being worked like marks in a pro wrestling match by a bunch of mud sharks again?

    Howard got great ratings on E!, but that doesn't mean built anything. The same way Friends, Cosby show, Cheers, Seinfeld and Frasier were huge ratings wins for NBC - some people even say these shows saved NBC - but no one would claim Jerry Seinfeld BUILT NBC.

    I remember that shared channel bullshit. I wouldn't even know that I had E! if it wasn't for Howard.

    Talk Soup was great too. Jesus Christ though...remember Art Mann? And Jules Asner. Yick.

    But he was still just a personality on the network. To build it you have to do something other than sell them your show.

    Greedy Howie didn't build shit...... How long has he been off the air at E! because of his greed? Shouldn't the channel have crashed and burned like he claims Sirius will if he leaves?
