"It is going so great," Stern said on Letterman's program last night. "We started out with 600,00 listeners. In one year - January will be one year - we now have almost six million."

In two years, not one year, as Stern claimed, Sirius will have gone from 700,000 to just under six million subscribers. And Sirius will have added just 53,734 more subscriptions than XM since Stern announced he was leaving terrestrial radio.

I caught that too. If Sirius only had 600,000 as of 1/1/06, Sirius wouldn't be in business. I believe they were in the 3 million range. Now a jump from 3 million to 6 million very impressive so nothing can be taken away from that but I guess it's called "Howie math".

Howard is wrong, but it fairness it's not his fault. I was listening the other day when someone came in and told him that there was 600k listeners when he started, so someone gave him false information. What they meant is there were 600k when they announced he was going to Sirius, which is true.

Reading further on it wasn't Howie but Sirius. Sirius on their 2005 Annual Report, said that as of 10/1/04 they had hit the 700,000 member list. So unless they lost 100K in the next year plus,they are flat out lying. Sirius also stated that they had attracted 2 members to every 1 XM received. Well if Sirius did go from 700,000 to 5.9 million as stated on their annual report and SM went from where they were in 2004 (in the mid 2 million range) to 7.7 million now that Sirius added 52,000 more subscribers in that period. More? Yes, but not 2-1.

Mainelli is just doing more Stern bashing, which has no end for him. He's still bitter that Stern supposedly got him fired from his last job. Howard did get the numbers wrong, but not deliberately and this doesn't warrant an SEC investigation.

I know John Mainelli has openly said he is out to get Stern, but if I was him, I'd be more worried with trying to get WFNY out of the toilet. It's been a year already, I think we can stop using the "post-Stern effect" excuse. For the morning spot, yes, but the overall station ratings went down on the last books.

Is John Melendez making a lot more money on The Tonight Show than he did working for Howard? It doesn't seem like he has to do much on the show but I'm assuming the pay is much better.

From what Howard has said the money was much much better. He didn't fault John for going over there just for handling it the way he did. Howard has also said that he has heard that they are not happy with John over at the Jay Leno show but he has a contract. Thus, they don't give him much to do. The way Leno has utilized John has made him come off like a loser. Leno hired him but doesn't know what to do with him.

Rodman playing the Harlem Globetrotters!

"How can Curly dump a bucket of confetti on Rodman's head and Dennis not kick his ass?" :lol: ...or something along those lines.

Of course, they explained that the Globetrotters have two teams, one for entertaining and one that plays real games, which Rodman will be playing against the latter. Oh, and Curly is long gone from the Trotters.

Still, I like the idea of Rodman being in the entertainment tour instead and he breaks script and just starts kicking butt to whichever Globetrotter humiliates him.

Yup, Howard is washed up. Hoo hoo, Robin.

John Mainelli and the rest of the O&A apologists (all six of them) can throw out the whole "Give it time" excuse, but is there any doubt that Stern wouldn't be getting monster ratings immediately if he went back to free radio?

O&A are not new to radio. They have been on regular radio before and were on satellite for quite some time. If they were half as good as the O&A army thought they were, I think they should be beating Whoppi Goldberg in the ratings.

Well when Stern was on K-Rock, he wasn't on the radio 24 hours a day.

No, but even though his numbers were high enough in the mornings that K-Rock was consistently in the top 5 overall, after he signed off, their average rating was in the 3's. Stern averaged about an 8.0 rating in the mornings, and WXRK's afternoon number was an average of 3.0. Their overall number on average was 4.0. O&A have a 1.6 rating in the mornings. WFNY's afternoon number is identical, 1.6. If they were on 24/7, instead of a 1.2 overall rating, it would be a 1.6.

I'd say it's more like O&A hate Stern, and Stern couldn't care less about O&A.

After all, O&A are the ones who have talked about Howard and how much of a bad person he is on Letterman (it was great how Letterman treated them) and Leno.

And O&A are the ones who send their "pests" out whenever Howard is doing a SIRIUS promotion, or is doing a Letterman appearence.

And O&A are the ones who have spent time on their radio talking about Howard, and playing various clips of him and his show.

Howard's never done any of that. It's more of a hate/obsession thing with O&A.

That's all fine and good, but not related to what I talked about and that is the FAN'S obsession with each other. Like I said in the post above, why does it matter to the fans if O&A and Stern hate each other? Why do Stern fans care about what O&A ratings are? Or why do O&A fans care about how Stern supposedly treated O&A back in the day? It has nothing to do with the fans!

I guess I just don't understand the dittohead mentality where the fans think their show's fight is also theirs and while it goes down mostly on O&A fan, it goes the other way as we see here.

That's all fine and good, but not related to what I talked about and that is the FAN'S obsession with each other. Like I said in the post above, why does it matter to the fans if O&A and Stern hate each other? Why do Stern fans care about what O&A ratings are? Or why do O&A fans care about how Stern supposedly treated O&A back in the day? It has nothing to do with the fans!

I guess I just don't understand the dittohead mentality where the fans think their show's fight is also theirs and while it goes down mostly on O&A fan, it goes the other way as we see here.

I was responding to the last line of your post, which you said O&A and Stern hate each other. I think O&A hate Stern, and Stern is indifferent towards O&A. As far as the ratings go, I only mentioned it because Howard was talking about how poor the ratings are, and my focus was on John Mainelli. However, after hearing from O&A fans (the dozen or so that there are) how O&A are "younger and fresher" for so long now, to see their ratings go down is kind of funny.

Honestly, I listen to O&A, I think they are hilarious. I didn't listen to Stern so I can't say if he's good/bad or whatever. I could care less about the animousity between the two shows. And those ratings, were they for the hours O&A were on or the entire station?

I'm not sure what their exact hours are, but if O&A are on from 6-9 AM, then the 1.6 rating is for their show only. From the numbers I've seen, WFNY has a 1.6 from 6-9, 9-12, 12-3, and 3-6. After that it goes down to <1.

I don't know whatever possessed them to think that could work. My son pays for XM because he likes O&A (don't ask me why) but feels ripped off now that it is on regular radio too. O&A went on satellite because nobody would hire them which is a different reason than Howard's for going on Sirius.

It would be best for O&A to go back to satellite full-time. I'm sure their loyal fan base is the one that has XM, they want the full show uncensored. And with this last ratings book, O&A's ratings going down in all of their markets (including #1 NYC), they're proving that they're not going to be a big deal on terrestrial radio.

We all know that Artie signed a FOX development deal a few months ago, but Page Six had a report today about it, and it sounds more "concrete" than just the development deal we heard about.

http://www.nypost.com/seven/01142007/gossip/pagesix/breakout_time_pagesix_.htm

If he does leave, I wonder who will replace him. Maybe someone like Greg Fitzsimmons, or Greg Giraldo. Having Gilbert Gottfried there would be funny, but I don't know if the appeal of Gilbert outside of his laugh would last if he was there every single day. Plus, I doubt he would want it.

I also doubt Jackie would come back, although it would be great if he did. Howard is still very funny himself, don't get me wrong, but those one-liners that Jackie wrote for Howard made him look even better.

I have had XM since before O&A came on and there's no way I'll ever listen to FM. I do enjoy the O&A FM show because they get better guests, but I miss the full XM show. I'd be happy if they left FM.

To point out ratings in 2007 is a different arguement then in 2001. Name me one station that has excellent ratings, especially for talk radio. Like someone said, most real O&A fans have XM and we listen through XM so technically the ratings don't reflect the real number of listeners. Remember, when Howard was huge there was no satellite to compete with.

A few hundred thousand? There are over 6 million Sirius subscribers. When Stern began in January of '06, there were less than a million.

There are no stations now that have any kind of ratings in the FM world. But when Howard was on FM, his ratings were double and triple that of the second place station.

And if I recall correctly, XM started long before Howard left terrestrial radio.

No one can deny that Howard is an innovative personality in radio. If you don't like his content, that is something different.

I can't believe you are giving O&A a free pass for their crappy ratings on regular radio.

Do you honestly think that if Stern went back to regular radio he would not be destroying what Opie and Anthony are getting for ratings now?

Also, show me some figures that prove your theory that Howard only has a few hundred thousand people listening to his show nowadays.

Few hundred thousand? Even when Stern first started on SIRIUS, the most negative critics would say that he had around 1.5 million listeners a day. The SIRIUS subscriptions have nearly doubled since then. If I were to say 2.5 million listen to him a day, that would be a conservative number.

The fact that Stern could go back to FM radio tomorrow and quadruple O&A's ratings makes it a moot point. Even when people said his show was stale, and that he was washed up, his ratings were over 400% higher than O&A's (that's using his lowest rating).

Regardless, O&A's loyal fans have XM, and they are getting the content they want. XM is probably happy with O&A. Just because they haven't been a success on terrestrial radio shouldn't matter to the fans.

Got those numbers straight from the horse's mouth did ya? He's a liar. They had about 600,000 when he announced he was leaving in early 2005. Then he proceeded to do a one-year commercial for Sirius.

At the end of last year Sirius still had less subs then XM and even if every single person who had Sirius listened to Howard, he still has less people listening then he did on Free FM. God bless him for the deal he got (and the $80 million bonus he just got, right after letting a few of the news people go), but he sold out because there is no way he has as many listeners, or is as socially relevant now as he was 10 years ago.

Of course he does not have as many listeners as he did when he was on regular radio. Stern, even before he left to go to Sirius, said he did not think he would.

Some people just can't afford the money for satellite radio. Other people who listened to him on regular radio were probably just casual fans, so it's not surprising that they did not make the jump. And then you had the people who tuned in that claimed to hate him -- like the O&A army -- so it's not a shock that those people did not sign up either.

Even if you do believe that he is not as socially relevant as he was 10 years ago -- which I am not sure I necessarily believe -- at least Stern did have some glory years, which is more than I can say for O&A.

So you've gone from "a few hundred thousand listeners" to "not as socially relevant now as he was 10 years ago" when he had a #1 box office movie and the highest ratings in the history of modern radio.

How did Stern sell out? By taking a lot of money? He took a deal that paid him a ton of money, but also gave the fans a much higher quality show, and quality programming on his two channels. He also took a deal that means less listeners, and less ad revenue.

An example of selling out would be someone presenting fans with a poor, watered down version of a show just so they can get more money and national exposure.

If anything, O&A are the ones who are only a few steps away from being in the category of "selling out". They had a small group of loyal fans of XM who really enjoyed the job they were doing. They took more money and the chance to be a big name in the radio industry, went to terrestrial radio, and took a chunk of time away from their regular uncensored XM broadcast.

The show that he is doing on Sirius is 10 times better than it was on "regular" radio.

IMHO it's well worth 12.95 a month.

You can debate the Stern vs. O & A crap all day long but that's not the point. Howard and his cast of characters are funny as hell and now that the restrictions are off the product is better.

That one was good. A lot of time though they are duds. I didn't like it when I heard that he would only do 4 days vs the usual 5 and still don't, but not enough to cancel my subscription. Most of the time I use Friday to catch up on parts of the shows I didn't listen to Mon-Thurs since I record them all on the Stiletto. I have more than enough to listen to.

The 4 days are very enjoyable anyway, regardless of whatever excuse Howard uses "I stay longer on the 4 days, so you're really getting more show, etc". He'd be better off just saying he made a great deal and its up to the listeners to decide to pay the $12.95 or not.

Even without Howard competing on terrestrial radio they can't get his audience. I tried to listen to O&A once and just thought it was unlistenable.

Howard has not sold out. Selling out for him would have been to stay on FM radio having to put up with the censorship of his show. They would have given him big money to stay and, yes, even cut his hours if he stayed. He would have been working less hard than he is now on Sirius. For Howard it would not have been worth it if the censors won.

Just like cable TV, satellite radio is only going to get bigger and bigger. When cable first came out the consensus was "pay for TV...that's ridiculous" and the same was true when XM started in 1999. Slowly but surely it will become the norm. Sorry but there is no way I'm buying that Howard brought all 4 million Sirius subscribers in 2006. He definitely accounted for some, but maybe some people just got tired of 10 minute commercial breaks and the idea of commercial free music is worth $12 a month.

How many suscribers did XM haul in last year?

You really think that every single person who got Sirius did so just because of Howard?

Just like cable TV, satellite radio is only going to get bigger and bigger. When cable first came out the consensus was "pay for TV...that's ridiculous" and the same was true when XM started in 1999. Slowly but surely it will become the norm. Sorry but there is no way I'm buying that Howard brought all 4 million Sirius subscribers in 2006. He definitely accounted for some, but maybe some people just got tired of 10 minute commercial breaks and the idea of commercial free music is worth $12 a month.

That's why I got XM. Then O&A joining and MLB just made it that much better. Even if O&A left altogether, I wouldn't go back to FM. Satellite is worth every penny.

I am an XM man and a fan of O&A. While I wouldn't say "100% of the increase" is Stern. I think conservatively 80% of it is (and probably more).

Your overall point about satellite radio couldn't be more true. I will never go back to terrestrial radio. I love satellite radio.

Well, what else changed in '06 on Sirius that would attract subscribers?

Lets see...FM is horrible, radios got cheaper, Christmas, technology grew, word of mouth about no commercials/no regional stations, NYC lost their main rock and oldies stations, need I go on?


How many suscribers did XM haul in last year?

The final 2006 numbers aren't out yet. They'll come with the annual report, but as of October 2006 we have this:

http://fmqb.com/Article.asp?id=284217

However, those numbers may be misleading because of Sirus' way of counting. According to them, cars that have radios installed are counted as subs even before said cars are sold.

http://www.orbitcast.com/archives/xm-vs-sirius-subscriber-numbers.html


So wait. Sirius counts a subscription when it's delivered to the dealership (essentially "sold" to the dealer), whereas XM counts a subscription when it's... activated (after the "trial" period?!). If you anyone has more info to add to this, I'd really be interested. It's hard to compare the subscriber numbers between the two when there's no standard for measurement.

I think your point about FM is true, but that being said, why did Sirius' subscription totals DOUBLE from January 2006 until today? Are you saying that is more about FM radio than Howard Stern? Why didn't they jump on board earlier? And why so much to Sirius and less to XM? 2006 was the first year Sirius added more members than XM and it's hard to say with a straight face that it was anything other than Howard Stern as the main reason. I am a huge O&A fan too. Big one but it is what it is.

I don't think the difference in how they count for subscribers (to which was the case prior than 1/06) is significant enough to change matters.

I think the status of FM now is more than a valid reason to go to Satellite radio which is why I did.

Because when they were at 2.5 million, it's easier to double then XM which was at 5.5 million at the start of the year.

Sirius might have gotten more subs in 2006, but in their biggest quarter ever (4Q 2005) right before Howard came, they only outsold XM by about 75,000. Small numbers in the grand scheme of things.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sirius_Satellite_Radio

"Sirius currently has fewer subscribers compared to competitor XM Satellite Radio (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/XM_Satellite_Radio), with 6.024 million (as of January 2 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/January_2), 2007 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2007)), less than XM's current audience of roughly 7.6 million (as of January 5 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/January_5), 2007 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2007)). However, Sirius is gaining new subscribers at a faster rate than XM. In 2006 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2006), Sirius added a record 2.7 million net subscribers, [1] (http://investor.sirius.com/ReleaseDetail.cfm?ReleaseID=224031&cat=&newsroom=) to XM's less than 1.7 million [2] (http://xmradio.mediaroom.com/index.php?s=press_releases&item=1409)."

So you are saying that the 2.7 million members in 2006 were there because FM stinks and not because of Howard. I'm sorry but Sirius got more new subscibers in 2006 and it was primarily because of Stern. If it was FM and nothing to do with Stern as you seem to be saying, why didn't equal amount go to XM (or as was the case prior to 2006 more to XM?) They outsold XM but the point is they never did before 2006 and what else other than Stern would cause that?

They also gave Stern something like $250 mil in stock options for pulling in more subrscribers than originally projected

True and that's a separate issue whether or not it's that great a deal when all the payout is considered (I don't know if it is or isn't) but the sudden jump in members is very largely due to Stern.

Between Artie getting pissed at Howard at the beginning, to Sal throwing up and crapping his pants at Penn Station, the Benjy-Richard stunt, depressed Beetle, phony phone calls, Artie's weasing and Tiny calling, and a lot more. Great show.

However, the line of the day came from Artie impersonating Lisa G. on the wrap-up show, when they were talking about Beetlejuice freaking out over Lisa G. shoving the microphone in his face in the hallway.

"Beetlejuice said he wanted to come on my face!"
"No, uh, Lisa, we have the tape... he actually said that he likes turtles."
"No, he said come on my face!"
"No, he said 'I like turtles.'"
"Well, whatever, I'm just going to take this to human resources now."

(about Artie) - "I didn't know heroin had so many calories!"
(about Artie) - "He's gone from a wop to a Whopper!"

First, I'm glad to hear Artie's voice and his being OK.

Second... I'm so tired of Sal the stockbroker.... When is Howard going to fire that pr*ck?!!!!

I agree, it was great hearing Artie's voice this morning.

I also agree about Sal. IMO, he should have been fired a few mornings ago when he admitted that he makes horse sounds about Beth O in his stand up

For those who heard Langford's report this morning about Petey Green... here's a clip of Howard's appearence on his show back from his DC101 days.

Quality isn't too good, but great to watch regardless.

Saw this posted on SFN; nice to see some people on terrestrial radio still give Howard some respect. Most of the clip is just yelling between these guys, but a few Howard mentions for the markets he put together in the morning.

I got this from SFN....

Well, the details are finally out and Cabbie did participate in a porno shoot in Howard's studio between Ron Jeremy & Tabitha Stevens. Howard obviously feels betrayed and Cabbie has several times in the past denied that this porno shoot ever took place.

Cabbie said that howard OK'd the prono shoot and he quoted this from www.MarksFriggin.com (http://www.marksfriggin.com/)

Cabbie let Ron Jeremy and some other adult porn stars use his old studio at K-Rock for a movie. Ron had sex with some lady on Howards chair
It would shock me if we hear Cabbie back on the air

If they really did it on Howard's chair I doubt Howard will have anything more to do with Cabbie. Howard was so good to Cabbie, too, and he never deserved it.

"Bob, spell prophet."

"Phoret."

Artie: You're a Dodo bird. How do you function?

Next time:

"Spell prophet."

"Porfit."

Artie: You just asked him the same f**king question, and he got it wrong again.

That was hillarious. So was Crackhead Bob explaining what Neil Armstrong is famous for. And the Asian girl saying what "feline" is... the whole game was brilliant. :lol:

By the way, if there was any chance of Cabbie coming back on the show, that went out the window. He had a total meltdown on SFN, and posted stills from the tape that he said he destroyed, and was gloating about it.

Also, Mutt (owner of SFN) said that Howard will have a big announcement on Monday that involves SFN/the internet. No one knows exactly what yet, but the early rumors are that it's either a live online video stream of the show, or the Howard TV on demand service will become available online (which is good for satellite subscribers).

I'm really looking forward to the debut of the "Spotlight" series on Howard 101. Especially the first episode, "The Billy West Years". Billy even did stuff for the show. One step closer to him finally coming back on the show live for an interview. I've always felt that the years Billy was on the show ('90-'95 full time) were the best years in Stern show history. All of his voices were great. When he left, that was a huge loss.

He did say that, but I don't think he said he was told by them that it was safe, he was just assuming. The old owners gave him a job only because they were fans of the show. It's not like a door opener is vital to the store's success. :lol:
