Howard Stern: Bring back the Creativity

August 22, 2009

One of my favorite parts of the Howard Stern show has always been the prank calls they play – from the old Captain Janks calls to the current ones by Sal and Richard.  A year or two ago, their calls were amazing.  They can be incredibly creative.  The best was when Richard called a woman using two voices simultaneously.  The problem is that two years ago, the stuff Howard was rejecting because it wasn’t quite good enough to make the air was still very funny.  Now many of the bits that make the air just aren’t that funny, and there aren’t very many of them.  It used to be that there were some funny bits on the “Jack and Rod” show done by Sal and Richard that Howard wouldn’t play at first but would occasionally say, “These were the ones that didn’t make the air.”  Now, the ones that do make the air aren’t even as good as those from two years ago that didn’t.
