The guy who started and runs votefortheworst.com was on Howard's show a couple of weeks ago. He said they have never supported a contestant that has made it to the top ten.

There's always a first time! This season has been a joke so far, may as well end it that way!

Looks like O&A and Mancow are having a war.

It's funny how Manqueer always brings up other people's ratings in Chicago, but he'll never talk about the ratings disaster that is his show outside of that city. He was in last place in a number of major markets for years.

Even though they both hate Howard, atleast O&A have some talent. Manqueer is as bad as Imus.

Mancow sucks, not a fan of O&A but I love how they are goofing on him and calling him out.

He's not even on in Chicago. That's the funny part. He is on in all these small cities and has the audacity to call O&A failures. Even if they're not raking in the ratings on FM like Howard did, at least they're heard in NY, Boston, Chicago and other major markets. They're also heard nationally on XM.

Mancow is just jealous because neither satellite company nor any of Howard's old stations wanted him.

http://www.fmqb.com/Article.asp?id=379099

This article just makes him look even more foolish.

I can't stand Howard but I can respect what he's done for the industry and he was funny back in the day. Mancow was always the biggest phony out there.

I read another article about how Stern is planning to ruin that lousy, overhyped talent show called "American Idol." Thats so awesome on how he is trying to get all of his listeners to vote for the worst contestant to ruin the shows ratings..haha.

I truly hope that plan works out smoothly so American Idol can finally lose its ratings and then go off the air.

If that does happen, I'll be doing the happy feet:D

Oh thank the Lord that there are people who do agree that American Idol should be off the air. Too much hype and the judges are complete scumbags, especially that a-hole Simon who brutally insults other singers and destroys their dreams. Argh, seeing that guy on talk shows wants me to punch his lights out. (Guys don't take that literally:) )

I know many of you might have a different opinion about music then me but I extremely hate pop music, especially the ones from this generation. Completely played out, whiny and too catchy. There's no depth in that. Makes me miss the grunge scene of the '90s, even the classic alternative from the '80s.

Howard Stern rocks!!!. Miss listening to him on regular radio since I don't have Sirius.
For those who hate American Idol and the negative message it sends, lets hope that Stern's plans will finally work to derail that piece of crap of a show. Ugh, enough is enough with that and the rest of reality tv.

I can't stand Simon Cowell either. And I am not a fan of reality TV in any form. It is a way that the networks have devised to provide programming without spending a lot of money, quality be damned. Too bad the public is falling for it in droves and don't realize how they are entitled to some decent shows on TV.

Yes, every Friday. Initially he worked a few, but slowly worked his way into Fridays off altogether.

I'm not going to sit here and make excuses, that we get "more show" Mon-Thurs (we do though) and that "makes up" for it. I don't like that there is no Friday show, but don't dislike that fact enough to cancel my subscription.

That's huge. He usually does anywhere from 60-80 minutes to start the show with no commercials. When there's a guest or bit going it runs until it is over, whether the guest spot or bit is 25 minutes or 60 minutes, then they do commercials.

Would I like Howard on the air more? Sure. However, between the show normally on four days a week, plus the replays, I more than get enough of Howard. Furthermore, I also like some of the other channels on Sirius, like Hard Attack.

I am very happy with my subscription.

I think he does work more at SIRIUS than at K-Rock.

He had I'd say close to 15 minutes of commercials per hour at K-Rock. At SIRIUS, it's about 5. Plus, he would go to 10:30 AM on average at K-Rock, and at SIRIUS he usually goes to around 11:15 AM.

I'd say he does 4 1/2 hours per day at SIRIUS, compared to approximately 3:15 at K-Rock.

3:15 for 5 days = 16:15 per week at K-Rock
4:30 for 4 days = 18:00 per week at SIRIUS

Yep. He DOES work more now than at K-Rock.

All uncensored. It is definitely worth the subscription.

Now, with the all day replay, I think I maybe MISS 1-2 minutes of the show a day.

I used to tape the show and listen to it later and I couldn't believe how long I had to FF to get past the commercials. If the tape was one hour on one side, about half of that was commercials. It has got to be better now. I am going to subscribe to SIRIUS soon.

Satellite radio rocks. And if you like Howard in the morning, you are missing out. His show was made for satellite radio. There are no holds barred and he seems so free and easy about his delivery. It's truly a great show now.... (although he doesn't rag on Tom Chiasano anymore, which was always great comedy).

I know I have been saying it for awhile. The thing that is holding me back is that I won't have the time to listen to Howard. I was so hooked when I used to listen that it took a lot of time each day to keep up on the show. I am afraid I will get nothing done if I start listening to Howard again. He is like an addiction. But I do miss having a good laugh in the morning! So, maybe I will meet your deadline! :)

If you got the cash, they just dropped the price of the Stiletto $100. The S10 is $149 and $249 for the S100. I have the latter. The S100 has more room for recordings. I listen to Howard on my terms, FF through something I may not care to hear (like a recording of Richard Christie's bowel movements).

I was getting to that point just before he ended his other show. I started to FF the naked babes, sorry guys, but that doesn't interest me. And Richard Christie is a perv as far as I'm concerned. But when you FF you just never know what you are missing. :D

Thanks for the info on the Stiletto. I was wondering if there was a difference in the Stilettos. I have seen both advertised and wondered because I didn't know they had two versions. So the Stiletto S100 would cost $249, Hmmm, I have some credits at Best Buy, about $140 worth. It might be time for me to purchase one.

One of the main differences is the storage capacity. You can record 10 hours of show with the S10 and 100 hours with the S100.

With my S100, that leaves enough room to record and save about 3-4 weeks worth of Howard's show (5-6 hours each). You also get more Mp3 storage (about 1-1.5 GB-they say 2, but I find 1-1.5GB is more accurate).

However, you will need to home docking kit too with either unit, which ran me $70, but I think has come down from that (Best Buy is at $49).

If money is the main issue then the S10 is the way to go, but you get much more by getting the S100.

While I am normally against the extended warranties at all stores, it would be in your best interests if you get one of these units and protect your investment. They do come with a one-year warranty already.

Of course there are much cheaper units you can get without the recording features. They do repeat his show all day.

Yeah I must have missed the part where Howard claimed to invent votefortheworst.com. Fortunately for me what I didn't miss was the episode of the Howard Stern Show where Howard had the creator of votefortheworst.com on his show. And Howard proceeded to give the votefortheworst.com creator full credit for starting the vote for Sanjaya movement. In turn, the votefortheworst.com guy gave Howard credit for taking the movement to a new level because of his influcence with his audience and his ability to attract media attention.

But keep doing your little hoo hoo routine. It's very amusing.

He has nowhere near enough listeners to be making the impact on American Idol that he claims. He's just trying to get his name in the news but it's not working.

So basically you're saying O&A have 25 million listeners a week? That would give them about 5 million more listeners on average than Rush Limbaugh. :lol: !!!

I always knew O&A fans were delusional, but come on. Their share in NYC has gone down every ratings book. They had a 1.6 share, which basically means if you opened up your window, stuck your head out in the middle of the night, and started talking, the same number of people would hear you. :lol:

I think the only people here who are delusional are O&A fans. Every O&A fan says "yeah, you just listen to and believe everything that Howie says"... yet O&A are the ones that claim Howard says he invented everything, and O&A fans say the same exact thing... so I think we have it backwards, here.

And for anyone saying that Stern is somehow more relevant then O and A are (despite their massively bigger audience,) I suggest they look at the recent guest lists.

I don't know the guests that O&A have had, but Stern has the same guests now that he did on terrestrial.

And please, let's not use "massively bigger audience". That 1.6 share in NYC is beyond pathetic.

So basically you're saying O&A have 25 million listeners a week? I always knew O&A fans were delusional, but come on. Their share in NYC has gone down every ratings book. They had a 1.6 share, which basically means if you opened up your window, stuck your head out in the middle of the night, and started talking, the same number of people would hear you. :lol:

I think the only people here who are delusional are O&A fans. Every O&A fan says "yeah, you just listen to and believe everything that Howie says"... yet O&A are the ones that claim Howard says he invented everything, and O&A fans say the same exact thing... so I think we have it backwards, here.

And Pests, Army, whatever. The fact that fans of a radio show call themselves anything is pretty pathetic.First of all I listened to Stern before i ever heard O&A and i know first hand how he claims to invent everything and how he blatently lies to his audience.

There is no way Stern has 3 million listiners. Sirius has 5 million subs TOTAL so you're saying that 60% of the people who have Sirius listen to stern? No chance. He talks to closer to 800k-900k every day. O and A on the other had are on in most of the big markets in the country and they are one of the highest rated shows on XM (which still has more subs.) So they have more listiners by a pretty big margian.

I just went over to the marks friggin site that lists all the guests stern has and looked and the last 2 weeks he's been on the air. (obviously he's off this week taking one of his 200 offdays during the year.) The guest he has are BEYOND laughable. Here are some of the gems he's had in the last 2 weeks on the air:

Former Hollywood Madam Jody 'Babydol' Gibson (WHO?)
Robin Leach
Bill Keller
Randy Spelling And Sean Stewart
Dana Reeve's Sister Deborah
Gene Simmons
Angie Everhart
Comedian Ant

Compar that to the guese that O and A have had the past 2 weeks
Gene Simmons
Quintin Tarantino
Robert Rodriguez (The director of Sin City)
Kurt Russell
Freddy Rodriguez
Jeff Goldbloom
The entire band Black Sabbath

The difference is pretty clear. Years ago those people went on stern, now they go on O and A.

I know O&A fans love to think Stern has this miniscule audience, but it's just not the case. His audience is bigger than theirs, and it drives O&A fans NUTS. :lol:

So they get better guests, I guess. Personally, having been a long time listener of the show, I'd rather hear from Robin Leach (a long time guest of the show) and Angie Everhart (Howard's girlfriend before Beth) than directors and actors in a movie I have no interest in seeing.

XM has held the same steady pace since satellite became known. It picked up when Stern's signing was announced and satellite was out in the public more. SIRIUS jumped dramatically from the time Howard announced to right before he started, and then another huge jump from the time he started up until this point.

Those are the top 50 markets they are on that Stern was on. Stern brought each station into the top 10, and a lot of them (specifically east coast) were top 5.

Basically, they don't have many listeners at all for a terrestrial morning show. Imus is beating them. IMUS!!! Stern has more listeners now on SIRIUS, and if not, they're basically even.

But listen, no matter what is said, you'll say that Stern has less than a million listeners, so I guess there's no point in going back and forth.

Common sense dictates that Stern has lost listeners. When he was on top of his game and #1 in all the major markets he had about 18 million. Sirius only has 6 million subs and even if 80% of them listen to Howard everyday that's still only 4.8 million.

Are O&A doing as well as he did on FM? Not at all, but I think part of that is because alot of people listen through their XM receiver, not their FM radio. That's how I listen everyday so I'm not counted towards their FM ratings.

Regardless, in this day and age, since satellite is growing so much, nobody will ever pull Howard's ratings ever again.

I respect Howard, but he's way past his prime IMO. O&A put on a funny show everyday and still have the drive to better their careers rather then rest on their reputation (and contract).

It doesn't matter what Web site/Message Board you are on. If you mention Howard's name, some O&A fan will feel compelled to chime in with a comment. You could be on a Save Darfur Web site and mention that Howard contributed to the “Save Darfur” fund and invariably an O&A fan will show up with “hoo hoo I invented charity”. It’s really sad and pathetic. Frankly I don't have anything against O&A. I really don't ever think about them.

He's on Sirius, so of course he can go over the top. His audience wants and demands that. We're paying to hear Howard raw and uncensored.Or many he's just trying to justify that PPV TV channel that about 8 people have....

It doesn't matter what Web site/Message Board you are on. If you mention Howard's name, some O&A fan will feel compelled to chime in with a comment. You could be on a Save Darfur Web site and mention that Howard contributed to the “Save Darfur” fund and invariably an O&A fan will show up with “hoo hoo I invented charity”. It’s really sad and pathetic. Frankly I don't have anything against O&A. I really don't ever think about them.

You are so right. It is downright sad. They don't have anything to talk about unless they are bashing Howard. Howard's fans don't even think about O&A but the O&A fans, all they think about is Howard. Pathetic!

Ok, that's it, you're done! Those of us who like him (the tens of millions) will continue to listen and enjoy it. I don't like Mel Gibson, does that mean I should interrupt every conversation someone has about him with how he's old and done and boring?

O&A don't concern me, I used to listen once in a while on WNEW and thought it was pretty good, but now that they're on in the morning I don't listen. Still, I have no problem with O&A, and I imagine there are a lot of O&A fans like yourself that don't have a problem, and don't care about Stern's show. But when you have fans like ABCBaseball who won't shut up about everything involving Howard, it's sad.

I honestly don't care about the ratings of either show, or who has the most listeners. Right now I'm more interested in the baseball talk on XM but when I'm not so much in a baseball state of mind I'll mix in some O&A. I just don't understand the obsession with some either.

So we can't trust the american idol producer but i have to trust a sirius' exec's numbers about how many listiners he gets? LOL

Even if 20% of people with access to a SIRIUS radio put on Howard 100 for one second a week, that still gives him more listeners than O&A.

Just admit that your whole "Howard has no audience" thing was dumb, and we can move forward.

Yeah, and no one in those major markets are tuning in to O&A. As was posted, not a single station of theirs in top 50 markets crack the top 10, and some can't crack the top 20. On the other hand, more than 20% of the people that bought SIRIUS bought it to listen to Howard. If you think that's not the case, then you're just lying to yourself.

if more then 2% of his listiners vote thats a huge number. The VAST majority of radio listiners would never do that and don't have that level of impact on the show.

Yes. And was that Sid Rosenberg I heard with him? I thought he was fired from WFAN? Imus apologized Friday. This isn't the first time that Rosenberg was part of an incident there. Several years back, he made a comment about Venus and Serena Williams comparing them to "monkeys". He was suspended for a week.

I think Imus is in big trouble this time. This is shaping up like the Michael Richards incident. Howard has been saying for a long time that Imus is prejudiced and wasn't nice to the ethnics on his staff back when they were both working at NBC. I guess when you think that way it slips out when you least expect it.

I used to listen to him but since I got XM and have either the MLB channel or O&A I haven't listened to him. But he's in his 60's and that's a bit older than most DJs are. I think this is the first time he's actually apologized for it. But To me, the worst comment came from his sidekick for saying the Rutgers women looked like the Toronto Raptors. This is the same guy (Rosenberg) who said that the Williams sisters looked like monkeys. And Rosenberg has been given multiple second chances, including down here in Florida. I think Rosenberg will definitely go and Imus will likely face some unplanned off time. How long depends on how much the sponsors act towards it.

Please, Rosenberg's comment couldn't be worse than Imus saying that they (the girl's team) "looked like nappy headed hos." They are saying that Imus needs to get involved with the community for reparations. Sounds like de ja vu from the Michael Richards debacle.

Not this one, but the fact that Rosenberg has said two such comments (and the fact he's a sidekick and not the main act) means he's out. The reality of the matter is that Imus makes money and if the sponsors don't say "we're not buying advertizing time with Imus there" Imus will stay. If they do refuse to advertize, Imus is gone. It has NOTHING to do with right/wrong, but as always, it comes down to money. I thi nk Imus's coment was worse and I have no idea where you thought differently.

I definitely agree that Rosenberg will take a fall. I just think that the fall out from this will affect Imus this time too. I know it has to do with money but I can just see Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton on TV now, going on about how his apology is not good enough for what he said. Personally, I think what Imus said is more offensive than what happened with Michael Richards.

BTW, what does Imus being in his '60s have to do with him making that comment?

Rosenberg is an idiot. He has screwed up so many times (gambling, alcohol, comments) that I'm surprised he's hired by anyone. I think he was fired twice by WFAN and this is his third time back. I think Imus's comments were more offensive, but Sid has a history of it. Also the reality of the situation is the actions towards Imus and Sid will not be equal. Rosenberg is a sidekick and is easily replaced. Also a sidekick is not that huge of a factor for when advertizers decide to buy spots on a station. Imus is the main act and whether or not he is/isn't fired will have little to do with how wrong his comments are (they were deplorable) but, like anything else in business, money. If the advertizers squak, he'll be gone, if not, he stays (albeit I'm sure an unplanned vacation).

I definitely think what Imus (and even Rosenberg's part) was more offensive than Richards. But as I alluded, if there is enough of a storm made, Imus will go. If not he'll stay. I think either way he'll at least be suspended. I think this is it for him personally as I don't see this going away quietly.

Well that may or may not be the case, but that doesn't matter. If he's going to be broadcasting on the air, it's part of his duty and job preparation to be in touch. Whether he is or isn't is not an excuse. Either way, he'll be fine. He's been paid a lot. And one thing that he does that I do have a lot of respect for is his ranch that he brings children with cancer down there to work on a ranch to give them a feeling of self worth.
