    it is so tired I don't get it. The show sucks and they always act like there is some epic moment that needs to be reexplored on every wrap up show. Have the weekend shows are stupid wrap up show replays. Who cares

    It's gotta be so Gary and Hein can make more money right?

    When even marksfriggin gives up on it you know it's really reached the bottom and that it's not just "haters" complaining.

    For a while there, it was more interesting than the actual show. Howard couldn't have that, so they took away everything good about it and left the shit.

    The interesting thing is that shows like Talking Dead copied the idea. I never heard of a show to discuss a show before Howard did it. I have to give credit where it's due.

    Sucking Howard's dick.

    Its 30 - 45 minutes of Gary and Hein fluffing anyone still listening into thinking that anything Howard does is the greatest, the best, the most original etc. If that was true wig wouldn't need to employ people to grind that into people's heads. People would just know.

    It makes fa fa flunky feel important, helps feed his ego and allows him to believe that he's something more than just a run of the mill jackass.

    The point of the wrap up show is to convince the audience that Howard's show is still good.

    I call it The Bonus Show.

    If you weren't bored as shit already with Stern, here's an extra helping of stale radio.

    Gary was patting himself on the back after the Steve Martin interview, which is funny because Steve said he decided it was time to do the show & made the call to set it up. GARY HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH IT. Stupid monkey shithead. :rolleyes:

    So "super fan" Gersh Cuntsman (from the obscure cable network show that no one watches) can come on via ISDN line (never in studio) and talk about how epic it was to hear Bobo's segment was....yawn.

    when the show moved one hour later, the format of the wrapup show completely changed. Went from talking with the staff and about them and some Howard, like 50/50, then went all about the Howard Stern show which sucked.

    The show also added a black guy, Rishan out of the blue. John Hein once said, he was not told before hand of the new hire and was surprised when he fist saw him.
    What pissies me off, people like Steve Brandano, who have been with the show for years and given a lot to the show, got shoved in the background to get replaced by someone new and boring. What a douche thing to do

    Also, sometime early last year John Hein said, fans have said the WUS started to suck.

    I still listen but zone out and fast forward when Gary/John and guests start to kiss Howard ass like crazy. Its great when they talk about interest besides the Howard but its rare.

    I wish there was ratings

    It's called MarciBall: using existing assets to create additional content for free. I'd be like asking the second baseman to pitch since, you know, he's already on the field. It's entertainment and energy-free, but that's beside the point. It's a way for her to check a box and "get things done" so she can move on to trimming more "waste".

    the most entertaining part is how Jon Hein can take a conversation with a G rated 'celebrity fan' about Bowel Movements and turn it into "how great Howard is".
