Best Jimmy Carter crack ever. 

The comedian Greg Fitzsimmons sat in with Howard today to do the news with Robin Quivers.  Robin reported how Jimmy Carter said racism was behind the... read on

    My son doesn’t like it when I listen to Howard.  All summer I’ve been driving him to his internship in Beverly Hills.  I wait in the car for him to get out of the house, figuring the extra time he takes are a few extra minutes of Howard.  He gets in the passenger seat and reaches to... read on

  • Why Howard Stern Isn’t YET The King of All Media

    All weekend the Stern Show has been replaying tape of a visit the Howard Stern Show took to the Playboy Mansion in 2001. Howard’s interview with Hugh Hefner got me thinking about something I’d given a lot of thought to in the past: Why isn’t there a Howard Magazine?

    On vacation up in Lake Arrowhead, I turned on Howard in the car.  I’d been with my family the whole time, which means no Howard.  I love the guy, but anyone who allows his 13 year-old daughter listen to Howard Stern deserves a visit from Child Services.

    I was running up to the... read on

  • When Howard Met Sacha

    Sacha Baron Cohen was on the show yesterday. It was theatre.  Cohen as Bruno, Stern and Robin as his straight man and woman.  If you didn’t hear it, imagine a Sid Caesar sketch from “Your Show of Shows”—funny accents, stream of consciousness humor, one-liners—but imagine... read on

    “There is no lower form of media than radio,” Howard is fond of saying—over and over. Throughout the “The History of Howard Stern, Part 2,” Howard slams radio as the bottom of the media industry, and D.J.s as the lowest media life form (this was before Harvey Levin, mind... read on

  • Mommy Dearest

    “The History of Howard Stern, Part 2” replayed a segment from many years ago where Howard describes his upbringing by a domineering mother to being raised as a “little Hitler.” I think at one point he describes himself as the child of Eva Braun, Hitler’s mistress.

    That... read on

    Whether Howard Stern retires from his daily morning show at the end of his contract, or extends it for another couple years, the writing is on the wall—he isn’t going to be doing his show for that much longer.  Two years?  Three years? Five? Any way you look at it, it’s hard to... read on
