    Theories abound, but Howard was definitely down if not angry all week after announcing the new deal with Sirius. My assumption is that some of the other "exciting" opportunities didn't pan out. I was surprised he wasn't happier, and seemed to ignore Gary's contributions almost entirely.

    He probably did the math and realized how many celebrity dicks he'll have to suck in five years, on the Marci Turk PC Funtime Ban Everyone The Audience Gave A Fuck About Force Them To Listen To Madonna Interviews Show®

    i don't believe for a second he got a 90 million dollar a year contract. i bet it's half of that at most.

    My guess on the contract 100 mil over 5 years. Thant includes all salaries of people on his channels.

    He was pretending he wasn't gonna sign hoping Sirius would buy his bluff and offer him the salary he believed he was "due." They didn't budge and he folded (i.e. took their lowball offer) because he had nowhere else to go and knew all along he was staying. He needs the income coming in to continue to pay for that wifey of his and their millionaire lifestyle. Plus whatever goes to his kids, taxes, etc. It's just further confirmation of his irrelevance. His glory days are far far behind him and it's all downhill from here. And he hates working-no matter how "exchiting" he claims it is. 90 million my ass.
    He lost the stupid game of chicken he was trying to play with Sirius.

    I dont get his obsession with 5-year contracts. Carson always signed for 3 and renegotiated for more $$ every 2 years. At the end, he only did one year deals.

    So you think he thought destroying the show and turning it into PC bullshit for housewives would have made it more valuable?

    Even the tapes of the old shows are edited now.

    Bob fucking Levy is banned. WHY? Add that to the endless list.

    he tested the market, the market slapped him in the face. he used to be edgy, with a strong supporting cast. now he's just another PC yenta in an over saturated field. I find it hilarious when idiots like Natalie Maines or Jillian Barbierie think they're bad asses being Stern fans in this day in age.

    On top of that, Howie's been hidden out of sight behind pay-walls for most for the past 10 years. AGT/Marci Turk HSS is not worth $500M. That version of Howard Stern would have never been offered the initial Sirius deal.

    None of the big deals Super Agent DB talked about took flight, so Stern had to swallow his pride. Not really a way to go out with a blaze of glory.

    The interesting part of the deal is the "licensing" part - does anyone know about this? I'm sure it has something to do with his old tapes. He's licensing their use, so he continues to own them. That would also explain why so many of the long old show clips disappeared from YT. Maybe Stern thought he'd be able to leave all of that behind, but once it became apparent that Sirius wanted to license his old stuff as part of the deal he had DB issue cease and decease orders for the old shows on YT.

    But - does it include the original tapes or the doctored versions.

    If Sirius played the unedited versions - I'd once again become a subscriber.
