How to improve the Howard Stern show

October 7, 2011
Here are some ways to improve the Howard Stern show. This was prompted because Sirius cut off my service for not paying, but I’ve been in a dispute with them because they’ve been charging me $2 for each bill they send. I think listeners should not stand for this. I’ve contacted Sal, Richard, and a bunch of others but they all say it’s not their problem. I’ve been listening for 30 years, by the way, longer than anyone on the show except for Howard, Robin, and Fred.
By the way, I don’t care about being cut off now because the show is on vacation again. I write articles, so why don’t I just cut and paste and reprint old articles?
  1. Tell Howard to actually do a cutting edge interview like he used to instead of kissing ass to everyone.  Howard is more of an ass-kisser now than Letterman.
  2. Tell Howard it’s AERO-Smith, not ARROW-Smith.
  3. Get rid of whiny, uninteresting, awful Lisa G.
  4. Have more comedians sit in on the news like the old days – Gilbert Gottfried, Richard Lewis, Norm MacDonald.
  5. More strippers, but with interesting angles like the old days.
  6. More Evil Dave and the guy who imitates Schwarzenegger.
  7. Less George Takei. He’s unbelievably boring and Howard overrates him because he liked Star Trek.
  8. Hire someone for Howard 100 News who is either under 70, interesting, or both.
  9. Bring back the roasts. Comedy Central stole your idea.
  10. Tell Howard not to go on vacation every other day.
  11. Don’t play commercials on both channels at once.
  12. More Sour Shoes.
  13. More Fred.
  14. Gary needs to show his personality more like the old days. He’s gotten fat and complacent.
  15. Less Shuli, J.D., Benji, Will Murray, and Jason Kaplan. You couldn’t imagine five more boring people. Stuttering John and Jackie were a lot more interesting.
  16. This has been going on for many years, but less Dancing with the Stars and American Idol.
  17. More prank calls from Sal and Richard. Where have they been?
  18. Get rid of Jay Thomas show, Geektime, What’s Worth Watching, the Intern Show.
  19. Keep Black on Black.

Scrap Howard 100 News from the Howard Stern show

August 22, 2009

Howard 100 News.  The concept just doesn’t work for me, and neither do the reporters.  I’d rather have more of the show, and Robin already does enough news.  As for news about the show, most of it is incredibly dull – they make stories out of nothing.  All four of the reporters are boring.  Lisa G has a whiny voice and she never says anything about her personal life.  Ralph Howard is really old and his style doesn’t fit the show.  I’m pretty sure Howard has him on for nostalgia – I think he had an earlier connection to the show.  Shuli is so boring in his style.  He has this monotone delivery that isn’t funny at all.  The questions he asks as well as his interviewees are decidedly minor league.  Who cares what J.D. thinks about anything?  Finally, Steve Langford.  He’s mildly interesting at times but the jingle is old, his overly exaggerated deep voice, alliteration, and pit bull style just aren’t very funny.  You could get rid of the entire Howard 100 News team or at least two of the four, and do other stuff instead of killing time.
