The Howard Stern Show Thread
#1
It's been said before, but this is the best he's been in at least ten years.
The show is allowed to build momentum when there are no FCC restrictions or commercial interruptions. There is no way Artie's recent revelations about his dad could have come out on regular radio. Where else are you going to hear a conversation go from vaginal thermometers to inappropriate nursing behavior to parapalegic bowel movements to euthenasia?

Agreed. I'm loving the show more than ever. I don't have HowardTV, but from what I've heard they've become reality stars in their own right - Gary's wedding reception, footage from Artie's high school baseball team, the Film Festival, clips from doing stand up on the road, etc. They really seem like they're hitting their stride. Artie's roast tonight should be excellent.

Tonight's roast is going to kick ass. Artie's got more things to make fun of than all the previous roastees combined, and that was without the revelations about his dad.

Eric is freaking hilarious. I love the way that ungrateful bastard almost dares you to feel sorry for him. I can't wait to see him float. Also, I'm not 100% convinced that he was given Katharine McPhee's ACTUAL cell phone number. He's also the biggest idiot on the planet for not taking up Tabitha Steven's offer.

To think that now they have all of the KROC tapes uncensored. The size and scope of their back catalog is mindboggling.

So that's Eric? Explains the bitterness. Hope they get him up in that balloon.

Colin Quinn and Nick DiPaolo (sp?) killed.
Richard and Sal are straight out of a John Waters movie.

Jesus, the post-roast antics are just too much. Richard and Sal are certifiable.

Gilbert was on the roast for that chick from The View? He was like a breath of fresh air.

I actually like Gilbert's appearances on Howard, and I didn't see him on The View, but he did a pretty shitty set on the Daniel Carver roast. Compared to the stuff that Lampanelli and even Sal put together, his lack of preparation was embarrasing.

The Artie roast was the best yet. Quinn and DiPaolo were arguably the best ones, especially when they started ripping into Howard.

Shuli had a slow start, but ended strong, especially with that killer Beer League joke that Artie walked right into.

Sal's set was fucking vicious. Who would've thought he'd be such a kick ass roaster?

Lisa Lampanelli wasn't as strong as usual, but even an "average" set from her is better than most. Maybe my expectations were unreasonably high, because she usually kills.

And finally, it was great to hear Yucko break out of his slump. He came charging out of the gates by slamming Mary-Ann, and took off from there -

"I saw Dana at the fire house, sliding down the pole.
It was attached to the fucking fire chief." *honkhonk*

"Artie was crushed when they broke up,
and Dana was crushed every time they fucked." *honkhonk*

"President Bush Thursday signed into law legislation that raises fines tenfold on radio and television broadcasters that violate U.S. decency standards by airing extensive profanity or sexual content."
Howard's going to be doing a happy dance. It's kind of disturbing that he was hoping this would go through. He's not a crusader for freedom, but a capitalist.

Well, it's always been other people that have labeled him as a free speech advocate. I'm sure he agrees with you.

Aside from that though, considering the number of years Stern fought the FCC with gradually diminishing support by his corporate backers, from his point of view, he wants to see those same media companies suffer the consequences of not challenging the government back when he was initially getting harrassed.

It's not like he didn't warn them.

BTW, that one-two punch of Robert Duvall and Andrew Dice Clay was phenomenal. I loved how Dice tried to rewrite that early Godfather scene with Tom Hagan in California.

George Takei was great this week. Too bad he won't be back til September. The pics of him and Artie's 'date' at the Guggenheim are great. They seem to pull more and more personal info out of him every time he's in the studio.

I used to dig the Friday show when they first started, but I just can't get into it anymore. Ironically, it has jumped the shark.

Sure he's a capitalist, but he can't value freedom if he enjoys seeing that godforsaken industry reap the whirlwind?

The show is now streaming through both Sirius's and Stern's websites. I've had it on since 7 or so and haven't had a glitch yet.

Enjoy my interpretation of Riley's thoughts on my profile.

I luckily have reception in my office with my tuner, but the streaming is nice because sometimes my signal drops out.

"Fly me with balloons...." My wife was getting annoyed the other day when she was on the phone, because I kept saying, "Ehh" over and over again. She hates Stern, although she has never really listened to his show. And one of her best friends listens to him on Sirius, so when we see her, she and I chat about the show, and I think it drives my wife crazy.

Beer League just got a great review over at FilmThreat.com. Is that getting a wide release?
Reply

The reliable source we call IMDB says no - just limited release.

The Eric the Midget song parodies will never end. Ever. I love his personal crusade to keep Katharine McPhee off the show. His voicemails just keep getting more and more angry. I love it.

My favorite EtM song is the Tainted Love one. Eh Eh. Dan the Song Parody Man knocked that one out of the park.

I can't understand the people that hate him. Yes, he's an annoyingly ungrateful little shithead, but that's what makes him hilarious. Every one of his phone calls and voice mails are comic gold.

I couldn't agree more. And yeah, the Tainted Love parody just kills. I'm SO tempted to see Artie and Dice at the Borgata in Atlantic City.

Howard 100 News needs to go. What a shitty fucking concept. I reallly don't give a shit about what's the latest on Robin's boat. If I do, I'll hear it from Robin, not Steve Langford. Any Howard 100 news update with either Lisa G. and George Flowers is just a major lull in the show. The biggest lull I think is Jon Hein. He seems like a nice person but what a dry motherfucker he is. Every employee on the show is fucked up and interesting in their own little way. Not Jon Hein. He really doesn't do a great job selling the Wrap Up Show. His routine is the same everyday. Every sentence begins with "We're gonna talk about" and ends with something that happened on the show. Who gives a shit? As if the Wrap Up Show will one day break its format and NOT talk about the show. I don't see why we need a rundown of what's going on afterwards.

And who the fuck let Penny Croan in broadcasting?

Penny is a nightmare.
The news and the wrap-up show should be scaled back to once a week. There's really no need for a daily update on which intern farted in the hall. I do like the free-form approach they're taking to programming, though. They just throw shows out there (like Eric The Midget's American Idol show) to see if it will work or fail (like Eric The Midget's American Idol show).

I think I hate Jon Hein more now that he's millionaire.

Howard 100 News I think will eventually be whittled down to nothing. They've already fired half the staff. Shuli could be more productive doing something else and the rest of them are rather useless. With the show repeating three times a day I don't need a Warp-Up Show or any other updates.

And Eric failed, but it was a trainwreck I wouldn't mind hearing again. Give him a different cohost every week and watch them try to save the show from Eric's pit of despair.

Eric's plan for everyone to ride the Sybian totally backfired. Sad little man.

Word has it Beetlejuice is in jail for some kind of scuffle at a convenience store. Also this morning, Howard was pointing out that when Rush was busted for carrying viagra he was returning form the Dominican Republic where many americans go for cheap brothels.
These are the stories the news crew should be investigating.

They're too busy wasting their time at Shioban's cat-infested apartment. What that guy did for the TV almost made me violently ill yesterday.

I'd love another Vegas show, although I think Artie would come back in a box. If you heard earlier this morning, Artie's going to have a guest spot on Entourage. The producers want him to slim down a little first. Not gonna happen.

So great. I catch myself doing the grunt-only 2nd verse all the time.

The Eric the Midget saga is the best thing ever on the show. What a riot!

As if it couldn't get any better, take a look at Eric's new list of demands in exchange for the balloon stunt -

* $500,000
* $250,000 to the Little People of America and another $250,000 to the Ehlers-Danlos National Foundation
* A new green Chevy truck complete with a wheel chair lift, a year of OnStar navigational and a DVD player. The truck should have yellow or green fabric interior
* A laptop computer, either Dell or Toshiba brand
* A Sony DVD camcorder
* An X-Box and an X-Box 360
* Equipment for his iPod and any videogames he wants
* The cartoon about him doesn’t air on Howard TV
* Passes to meet Kelly Clarkson
* Tickets to see and passes to meet Carrie Underwood
* Passes to meet Diana DeGarmo
* Members of the staff have to dress in drag and visit other SIRIUS channels to sing “gay songs”


That is just awesome. He didn't even know that the whole gang already dressed in drag for Howard's "Miss America" book. Howard, of course, refused every single one of them, and insisted that HE WILL FLY.

You'll believe a midget can fly!

What's the story on Howard taking another vacation? I think Bubba said he's taking a 2 week vacation. They really should be airing some of the tapes during the hiatus and not just replays from the past 6 months. It's a real disservice to the fans who have been there since the beginning.
