    You remember how GREAT THE SHOW WAS!!
    and how BAD the SHOW IS NOW!! :facepalm:

    #1 reason why the show was sooooooo amazing ?? NO WRAP UP SHOW re-RAPS!! :D
    that's right!
    Howard NEVER opened the show with "ROBIN did you HEAR SAL or JD or RONNIE on the WRAP UP SHOW???"
    He opened the show saying "where do I begin" and for OVER an HOUR was interesting and FUNNY...SO MANY TOPICS to discuss !
    now we hear "Sal doesn't know how to SPELL Receipt????" for an HOUR !!???

    Used to be the fans couldn't WAIT to hear what Howard will say on Monday Morning!! Especially back from Vacation Monday Morning!
    and now?? He opens the show with WUS clips.....FROM LAST WEDS!!! :rolleye:

    The first 4 years on Sirius = AMAZING RADIO!
    a 4 day a week show..
    5 HOURS A DAY!
    ALMOST ZERO commercial breaks...(now 1 every 20mins...and ever 2 seconds during Robins news...Howard reading live plugs has RUINED Robin's NEws for me!!!)

    and of course the obvious reason WHY the show as so GREAT the first 4years on Sirius.....
    Artie Lange was on the show!!!
    Wow! I REALLY MISS Artie on the show!
    SUCKS that Howard listened to so much NEGATIVE Feedback re: Artie! "Artie talked TOO MUCH...Artie didn't talk ENOUGH...Artie was High....Artie called out sick ALOT...on and on the Artie bashing!!

    I think Artie (and Robin) at some point "took over" the show in year #4...Howard could barely get a word in ....and Robin's laugh was LOUDER....always trying to OUT TALK AND OUT LAUGH Artie !! sooooo JEALOUS of Artie! it was quite obvious why he had to GO!!!

    I'm trying to hang in there with the show ....TRYING to...it's not easy...
    listening to the SAME conversations AND Bits...over and over and over....3 days of America's Got Talent....HowardTv plugs...BoBo & ETM calls....AND Howard playing clips from THE WRAP UP SHOW every fucking day!
    Year #6 on Sirius...SUCKS! IMO

    It's very sad ...
    but I'm determined to HANG IN THERE.....waiting to see how bad it gets when AGT is LIVE!! :facepalm: if we're sick of hearing Howard talking AGT every day?
    wait til the show is LIVE!

    rant over

    peace & love

    If he's lost you, what does that say about the state of the show? I uncoupled from the Howard Stern Grid, and it's like being born again. I used to get so pissed off at Robin, and then I'd be thinking about how fake certain bits were, but now I can just pick and choose. I don't *have* to hear Robin's voice. Best of all, NO SHULI!!!!

    i totally agree. Robin used to annoy the hell out of me.

    Now I only feel sorry for her, and pray that one day she snaps and goes off on Howard and how he's obviously lost interest in doing a good radio show. Robin was probably looking foward to retiring from morning radio, being able to sleep in, and maybe pursue a few other projects.

    She re-signed at what was likely a paycut, only to find out that the main host no longer cares.

    Fred's silence speaks volumes.

    Also does anyone have the clips where Fred and Jon Hein are giving their honest opinions when telling Howard that agt is a joke

    Lest anyone think that Artie was dismissed for being too funny,remember he is an addict. Unless that was a farcical post......
