    If you didn't hear the show, Bobo called in this morning to ask if Howard is as close to David Letterman as he is to Jimmy Kimmel. That was the signal for Howard to go off on an obviously scripted sarcastic tirade about how he and Letterman put on singlets and wrestle each other while Paul Shaffer watches from the side, and about how Letterman later checks Howard's back for moles.

    It was a very strange bit. Not funny at all, just weird. Wonder who wrote it.

    That's got Benjy fail written all over it. Or a Howard spontaneous ad lib.

    They are both about as funny

    That had beautiful gay music written all over it, so it's probably Aylissa Jordana.
    But Lisa G is also a writer, I don't know if her voice is worse than Erin Rodgers but I can't take her anymore. Had to turn it off when she came on to do a HowardNews brief.

    No wonder Howard gave Richard shit for missing the writers missing on Thursday.


    Another thing, do you think Howard actually comes to sirius for such meetings? Or does he conference call in?

    This was absolutely awful, but I don't think think for a second that it was scripted. This was definitely Howard showing off his spontaneous, excruciating wit.

    I doubt Howard comes to Sirius unless he's absolutely required to be there. This great content could be the result of some brainstorming on the moldredstern.com website they created.

    I totally agree... it was so frickin stupid, nothing funny about it. As usual, totally homo-erotic tones to it: wrestling, Dave checking Howard for moles,.... I bailed on it. Not only is it embarrassing to hear Howard bomb so bad, but to hear Robin cackle in some attempt to make the bit work, is even WORSE. :(

    Maybe if Fred was doing his job, He could have picked some sound effects to make the bit work.

    Agree...really awful. The fact that he and his crack writing team think that references to Letterman and Kimmel and late night talk shows make Howard seem cool and relevant, is in itself, sad and woefully out of touch. Does anyone watch that stuff regularly anyway, if at all? Poor Howard....he still doesn't see that he's just not the "King" anymore.

    And earlier in the show, Howard said Richard was gay but not admitting it. So everything's normal in the Stern universe ...

    For all the idiots that don't like Jackie and don't understand what he really did on the show, Well here you go. This started out as Howard ad-libing and that lead to Benji scribbling down awful lines. You could tell when Howard started reading the awful Benji lines.

    It was a complete train wreck...Benji will never be as good as Jackie.
