I was a Stern fan for a while. Back in the days of the E! TV show and then for a while once he went to Sirius. There was a time when I really enjoyed it, for various reasons. I just sort of naturally lost interest and listened less and less. I don't think I've listened at all in about 5 years and before that my listening had declined.
|by Sick of Ronnie||reply 22||Last Thursday at 1:36 AM|
I'm a longtime listener and I'm shocked at the state of the show. It was already taking a downturn since Trump got elected but since the lockdown it's a disaster. Serioulsy, nothing works.
Robin spends the entire show fake-laughing at every single thing Howard says, to the point that it's become background noise. She no longer does the news. You could replace her with a laugh track.
Fred you never hear unless he's doing the "puppets" which are painfully overdone and unfunny ("Cunt! Cunt! Pussy!") I have no idea *WHO* thinks this is funny or why Fred has lost the ability to read the room. His sound drops are fewer and usually late (they're on zoom). Awful.
Ronnie is this old fuck who's incapable of taking any kind of preceived criticism, he shuts down and gives the silent treatment. He yells, he's abrasive, stupid and aggressive. Incapable of normal conversation. He refuses to say who he's voting for and it's become a problem with the others in the staff who justifiably call him a coward. They have him on constantly. Why?
They're not in the studio, and the entire Stern schtick was always Howard bullying staff members or orchestrating fights between them. Stern himself was never funny on his own unless he went on a rant on somebody in the public eye. The rare times he does that, the segment gets immediately cut out of replays.
Sal and Richard are MIA. JD is never on. Benji same. Nobody's writing anything funny that you can tell anymore. The whack pack is a thing of the past (read the country). Now it's just him. He spends the show repeating the same things about masks and Covid, and talking about 90s rock bands no one cares about, for hours. He doesn't know jackshit about music. He butchers their names. It's just bizarre.
When he has a guest on, he switches to his patronizing shrink voice and pushes them to say that everything they do/are is because of their father. Systematically. He speaks for them. He interrupts constantly. It's infuriating.
When he takes callers, they're either planned calls about scripted segments, or agressive Trumpers he immediately shuts down. Why bother taking them on if they can't talk ? Does he have ANY interesting callers not calling about politics anymore ? I don't understand any of it.
He doesn't leave his house nor sees anybody. He repeats himself. He freaks out when his wife gets a haircut. His OCD and tunnel vision are out of control. It's painful to listen to.
I have no idea why Sirius would give him a new contract at this point. The only people listening must be people like me, horrified longtime fans listening out of habit waiting for that shit to end. I don't see how it's fixable.
|by Sick of Ronnie||reply 23||Last Thursday at 3:34 AM|
I think he'll re-sign but never come back into the studio.

Him not supporting Kathy Griffin (photo'd with fake severed Trump head) told me Howard Stern was over. (He said something like: she shouldn't have done that.) The old Howard Stern would have had a very strong free speech take on the KG situation. IIRC, free speech issues are why HS ended up on radio and off of E! TV. HS should be having more freedom on radio than he had on TV, but it seems like he got defanged.

|by Sick of Ronnie||reply 31||Last Thursday at 9:58 AM|
Duh, Benji writes jokes daily that Howard uses throughout the show. They are not announced as his on the show and never have been. I constantly hear the Wack Pack on an almost daily basis-- games, wack pack happy hour, wack pack updates, etc. Sal and Richard as well. Just last week for example there was a full Sal segment shaving his shaft. Almost everything this poster said about the content of the show in his long diatribe is false, as if he is listening in an alternate universe. He just seems bitter and depressed and is projecting his personal mood onto the show and distorting facts.
|by Sick of Ronnie||reply 32||Last Thursday at 10:11 AM|
I finally walked away from Stern, and Sirius for good about four months ago and haven't missed the routine nearly as much as I thought I would.
Stern really and truly does have nothing but disdain and disgust for anyone who isn't Jewish, wealthy and/or famous. His constant shilling of that little bug-eyed doctor friend of his, who's another one of those famewhore doctors, his constant sneering of his callers, even the sycophants who call to kiss his nasty ass. Even Robin, who went from Uncle Tom, Step-n-Fetchit to entitled, bitter cunt, became someone I couldn't handle listening to or paying for anymore.
It's not an "act" either. They've always weaseled out of accountability for the nasty things they do and day to people by indicating they're playing "characters". That's a load of bullshit. They're both unpleasant, nasty people. And yet, they've been so blessed and are so fortunate. They worked so hard to gain all of those fans and notoriety they built. Only to show their true colors the last few years.
I honestly grew to hate the man. The only thing he said/did that I could remotely appreciate in recent years was finally get rid of that psycho Brent guy.

Have to say that if you haven't listened to the show in years, R23, gives a pretty spot-on review of it. It is exactly that. At least as of when I left a few months ago. It's kind of a miserable experience.
I'm still shocked he got no blowback for calling Wendy Williams a cunt last year when she called him "Hollywood Howie" on her show. Somehow, he gets a pass from all the MeToo and BLM stuff. And his little weasely BFF Jimmy Kimmel has also, somehow avoided karma for all his black face stunts.

I genuinely liked Stern and laughed a lot at his show through the E! years and the first part of the Sirius years. It was fun and ridiculous. Hardcore fans made a lot about him "going Hollywood" and being friends and gaining the status of a lot of the people he used to skewer. He still worked for me after that - he became a pretty good "straight" interviewer - the interviews were less salacious and funny, but they were still informative and pretty good. And, some of the side stuff was still funny.
I didn't grow to hate him or anything, my interest just naturally diminished over time. One thing I did hate was when he was an AGT judge and he'd talk about AGT and the people and the production constantly. I'd always turn it off if he was in that mode.

I haven't listened in years. I was a fan during the K-Rock and E! show years. When Howard and company moved to Sirius, I refused to pay to listen to radio.
I gather Howard and Robin are skating on their past glories. I guess Jackie the Jokeman and Billy West are long gone. The show used tp be hysterical. Some of the best shows were the LIRR fight and other obscure bits which became classics. I would tape the show while getting ready for work, then bring the tapes into work, so everyone in my department could listen to the first two hours of the morning show.
An acquaintance's nephew was also part of the show, Gange, I think that was his last name. Gange was the guy who fucked some fug porn actress. This all seems like a hundred years ago!
I also heard that Crackhead Bob and Beetlejuice died.
Howard was the person who got Sting and Trudie to admit they were swingers, IIRC, that was the same interview where all the tantric sex rumors started. Sting later said it was a joke because Howard was being so relentless asking them about their sex life. Sting has really bad body odor, when Sting and Trudie left the studio, Robin kept joking that the place needed to be fumigated!

He's right, and Howard is in the same position. To be a horny 65 year old man is pretty nauseating. Also, he's got a hot model wife so he has nothing to complain about.

Yeah, but it's similar to Kathy Griffin. If you build your career largely on being the edgy, non mainstream person who took the piss out of celebrity culture, it's not the same when you accept an invite into that club. The Sterns are (or were until COVID) very active in the Hamptons scene. Beth would host her charity events out there, and they would frequently mingle with the A listers at various parties.
The last time I tuned in to his show was his interview with Madonna, which was disappointing. They went after her for years, the second she came into the studio, it was a complete 180 and Robin was even gushing over how beautiful she was. They never mentioned their beef, he never asked about the book her sibling wrote about her. It was all very puff piece.
His interview with Rosie O Donnell was great because they both went into everything. They talked about the feud, they let it all hang out. That's when Howard is at his best.

Has anyone else picked up on Ronnie's old man voice? It's quivery and shaky sounding. Yeah, it's time for him to go.

Howard has turned into his bitter father and some days the show sounds like you're locked up with your ranting grandfather. He pushes his opinions on his cowering staff and berates them for having a different opinion. He badgers grown men over their choices, like when he ranked on Gary for the way he set up his in-home theater and gets on Jason about his love of meat.
Lately, I've been annoyed when Howard talks about Beth - she sounds like his housekeeper instead of his wife. He "praises" her for all of the menial jobs she does - cat patrol, washing his strawberries, dusting, mopping, etc. Then Beth makes herself look like a doormat when she comes on and says oh, it's fine. Either she's the nicest woman on earth or she knows to keep playing the game and count the days until.... RIP Howie.
|by Sick of Ronnie||reply 86||Last Sunday at 9:47 AM|
I think Howard give Ronnie so much air time because he is still in the mindset that sex is one topic that will keep the interest of a large majority of his audience (truckers, blue collar dudes, etc.) and Ronnie's disgusting stories are an easy way to fulfill that need. It's telling that Howard doesn't regale the listeners with stories of his hot sessions with Saint Beth, so he uses Ronnie as the go-to when things get slow. I am counting the days until Mr. Mund retires cause his stories make me gag.

I love love Howard, but I don't always agree with him nor do I enjoy every single moment of the show. I think it is ridiculous to expect to. I'm quite sure he doesn't even like every minute of the show when he listens back. He produces 3-4 hours of content each show, a tremendous undertaking. He tries out ideas, some of which work and some of which don't. He has tons of different guests and topics, none of which every listener will enjoy. He can be moody or serious when some people want silliness or fun, or vice versa. Everyone who has SiriusXM has access to the app and can download every show, as I do. All you have to do if you don't like a guest, topic, or bit, is skip through it to something else. That's what I do every time I listen. Technology enables us to listen or not listen to whatever we want, no one's being forced to hear anything they don't like. Just appreciate that there's a lot of great content and be grateful for that.

But it isnt. Thats a ridiculous claim. We get it, you don't like Ronnie Mund or get why other people do or find him funny. He's not my all time favorite, but I think he's amusing, especially when they fuck with him. In any case he isn't on the show anywhere near that much, that's just an outright lie. You seem obsessed with hating him thus your deluded impression that hes on 85% of the time. You can easily skip through the segments he is on and still have tons of content to enjoy.

R96, they speak with him, but I get the feeling the two older ones do not speak with Beth at all - they resent her. The youngest one was young enough when her parents divorced that she probably doesn't have the same resentment.

Howard Stern is pure trash and always will be. I'm not a fan of Wendy William's, but thought it was really weird just how upset he got at her last year or whenever that was, for her calling him Hollywood Howie. He was really disgusting and a bitch to her for saying the shit he said about her.
Their both shock jocks and you would think he would've taken it better than he did. Howard is a true bitch.
And he's very sensitive and emotionally abusive and unstable, fuck him.

The person above who made the comparison to Kathy Griffin makes a point. Kathy learned the hard way just how NOT in the club she was. I think Howard is the the club more so because that is what Beth wants. I think he prefers to just stay in the house.
|by Sick of Ronnie||reply 99||Last Sunday at 11:34 AM|
Howard is also a nasty Jew too. He said he was glad about Rodney king getting beat by the police when it happened. To me that was fucked up. He's a nasty bitter Jew, who just like an earlier poster stated, he has pure disdain for anyone who is Jewish wealthy or famous etc. I don't care for people like him, he's one of those people who have extreme wealth fame and all of the material possessions anyone could want, but he's still very unhappy underneath it all.
That's why he can't let his stupid show go, he's knows without it he nothing. Even Oprah was smart enough to end her talk show after 25 years on the air, but she's also way richer than Howard could ever hope to be.
What a horrible human being Howard Stern is. Good Riddance to him.

R101 Howard Stern used the N word regularly on his show, so please stop with the bullshit. Jewish people are not above reproachment.
Joan Rivers was also very racist towards Michelle Obama right before she died, bet you have nothing to say about that either.

You're the one posting this hatred on DL, r105, not Howard Stern or Joan Rivers. Calling someone a "nasty bitter Jew " is antisemitic and unacceptable, no matter what anyone else has ever said or done.
|by Sick of Ronnie||reply 106||Last Sunday at 12:51 PM|
R106 It still doesn't excuse them either. Howard has said some really horrific things in his career and no one bats an eye. I think if it's ok for him to say outrageous things along with Trump, then the gander is good for everyone else too.
DL is not innocent in saying inflammatory things. This site is just as provocative in the things it says about others as anywhere else on the internet.

I liked him years ago. I was younger, it was new. Listened regularly in the morning while getting ready for work. Didn't want to pay for him. Considered it but no. Actually mourned a bit. Sounds like I'm not missing much at the moment.
|by Sick of Ronnie||reply 108||Last Sunday at 1:12 PM|
Who said it excuses them? Its the poster who called Howard a "nasty bitter Jew" that brought up and used their alleged behavior to excuse himself for doing so. And what does Trump have to do with this? And who said what he says is ok? There's nothing wrong with being "provocative" and disagreeing, even trashing someone you don't like. But unequivocally it is unacceptable to call someone a "nasty bitter Jew," same as it is to call someone the N word, etc.

I heard the show a couple of weeks ago where several Trump supporters were calling and whining about Howard's tepid attacks on Trump. Holy shit, you literally have to have no brain cells to be a Trump supporter. I was embarrassed for them because they don't have the capacity to be embarrassed.
They continue to defend the indefensible.

It was just non stop with him. I guess that's why R127. But you're right, I guess those types tend to be the angriest.
|by Sick of Ronnie||reply 128||17 hours ago|
For R125 - when Howard was making his movie, his wife found a list of hygiene items, etc. that Howard asked to be supplied in his trailer and one thing on that list was condoms. The thing is, Howard and Allison didn't use condoms and the implication was that Howard would be using them on other women. Howard came on the air and explained that he had left Ralph in charge that job and he said that Ralph made the list and put down a lot of things the Ralph wanted/planned to take for himself. Howard pointed out that the one thing that made his wife believe this was a Ralph fuckup is that the toothpaste that was on the list was not Howard's usual brand.
This condom calamity took up about 1-2 hours of the show. Howard got Ralph on the line and bitched him out for a good 45 minutes, then he got Allison on the air and she told how she got angry, then calmed down when Howard figured out that this list was Ralph's creation. Then he let the listeners call in and tell Howard how he should get rid of Ralph, then the ones who called in to bust his chops and say oh, sure Howard, those condoms were for Ralph :wink wink:.
|by Sick of Ronnie||reply 129||17 hours ago|
I believe Howard when he said that he never cheated on Allison.
|by Sick of Ronnie||reply 130||17 hours ago|
I forgot to add that Ralph said he put condoms on the list as a joke. He gave the list to Howard's assistant to pass onto whoever was supposed to order the requested supplies and never dreamed that the list was going to get into Allison's hands. Ralph is dumb.
|by Sick of Ronnie||reply 131||17 hours ago|
[quote]I believe Howard when he said that he never cheated on Allison.
I don't. He has revealed his glaring hypocrisy and lies far too many times to believe him.
I recall him -after he divorced- inviting that biracial woman from his show "Son of the Beach" to his apt clearly to fuck her and when she revealed it in some article how he tried to impress her with his apt, he got her on the air to shame her and claiming she was there for professional reasons. A fucking moron could believe him. It was a disgusting display on his part to have done that to her.
|by Sick of Ronnie||reply 132||15 hours ago|
There's no question Howard cheated on Allison.
Steve Schirripa was on once, and he asked Howard if he remembered Amber Smith, who played the lady who straddled the speaker in Private Parts. Howard said yeah, and Steve revealed that she told him that she and Howard had had sex. Now, I've been listening for a very long time, and Howard never gets rattled on-air. THIS rattled him. He tried to play it off, but you got the sense he was caught red handed.
Steve Grillo says he believes Howard also had an affair with Mary McCormick, who played his wife in Private Parts. Even before Steve said this, I always suspected it because of the way they interacted on air. Also, Howard was caught out to dinner with her one night before he and Allison broke up.
Also, again Howard was caught red handed by Allison when condoms were on the list of things for his trailer.

OP--I switch over to Howard when I get bored with other SXM channels and have found him entertaining. But, after seeing your post, it seems every show is centered around Ronnie. This is Howard phoning it in. I suspect that in the next couple of months, he is going to retire.

I absolutely believe they had an affair after filming; it was really obvious. Mary would just show up unannounced and sit in the studio. No one mentioned that she was there until Howard started acting weird and goopy towards her. A lot of people must've been talking about it, because he addressed it once on the air, in a "the lady doth protest too much, methinks" way: "How ridiculous would I look if I fell in love with the woman who played my wife in the movie? That would be pathetic".
Here's Russell Crowe being interviewed by Stuttering John for his movie Mystery, Alaska, which co-starred Mary McCormick. At around the 2:00 minute mark, Crowe says something about how McCormick "used to be Howard's girlfriend, you know", and John quickly changes the subject.

r136 No, every show is not centered around Ronnie. OP is obsessed with his hatred of Ronnie so imagines this is so, He constantly monitors both channels, waits until a Ronnie segment appears on 100 or 101 and then posts here to try and prove his point.

I didn't know that he had an affair with Mary McCormack. But then again, I never followed the show that closely. That's kind of gross. I would guess he had sex with some of the many porn stars who were on his show, but the idea of someone seemingly normal having an affair with him seems worse. I guess Kat McPhee sleeping with her husband was payback.
|by Sick of Ronnie||reply 140||12 hours ago|
R137 It was during filming. And after maybe.
Eli Roth (yes, the director) was a PA, and was given the exclusive job of guarding Howard in his trailer. Many nights, Howard would sleep in the trailer, while Roth worked on his screenplay for Cabin Fever all night. Eli Roth was never once down on the set, not did he interact with anyone but Howard.
Well, Steve Grillo was at the wrap party, and he saw Eli Roth greet Mary McCormick as if they were friendly and familiar. This made Grillo believe that Mary must have been spending time with Howard in his trailer after hours.
Another thing was, while Howard was still married, there was an item about Howard and a mystery lady at some restaurant. On the air, Howard played it off like "yeah, it was me, Mary, and my agent." Don Buchwald was definitely not at the table, but I think Howard realized he was spotted, and frantically called Don over to give him cover, because there was a picture of Howard and Don leaving together, with Mary nowhere to be seen.
