    This stinks, E! has dropped the Howard Stern show for good, I read in an article that his show will be taken off on July 8th. There goes my entire reason to watch the E! Network, might as well take that channel off of my EPG with that show not on E! anymore. Tell me what you guys think.

    He was a waste of bandwidth on E! and will be the same on Sirius. But then, E! is usually a waste of bandwidth.

    Stern is a no-class, sub-human POS who would screw your mother/sister/wife/daughter in front of you. What we have lost is garbage. What has been gained is bandwidth.

    Good riddance!

    Most of you bashing Howard Stern, have probably never even watched his show or listened to it either. It doesn't matter about them taking it off of E! it's going to be on Spike TV before long anyway. :mad:

    You are right - I've never watched the show in its entirety, but I have seen a few snippets here and there and that was enough to tell me that I didn't want to stick around for the good parts - there were probably none to be had. It is not a show that decent people would care to view. The fact that you like it says a lot about you and your mentality. :shrug:

    Just because I like a show that you don't, doesn't give you the right to judge me.

    Yes, I do have "the right" to make certain assumptions about you based on the information you give about yourself. You are also known by the company you keep.

    Those people that don't appreciate or understand Howard Stern, simply have not taken the time to find out about him. Yes, he's a crazy megalomaniac with a bit of a fondness for the finer things in life, but hell, isn't our President??? If you sit down and read Stern's books and watch his show or listen to his radio program, you come to understand the genius behind it all. It's shock radio. He's done for radio what Ozzy, The New York Dolls, and Marilyn Manson did for music. It's what Benny Hill and The Simpson's did for television. It pushes the envelope and that makes people want to watch. There is definitely tasteless humor and actions carried out on Stern, but that doesn't mean there aren't millions of individuals who won't tune in the next day to find out if he'll top it.

    Stern is a money-maker and Sirius knows it. E! is going to be re-running his shows indefinitely but will cease new shows the first week of July. Stern's show will move, most likely to Spike, where it will be a better fit anyways. So... in response, Stern's a brilliant man with a plan. Do you think you could talk on the radio and make millions of dollars doing it every year... no, in fact most radio personalities never even reach six figures on a local or national level.

    Oh and Paul Harvey??? Is he still alive, or did he finally die from irregularity??? Oh, no maybe he was smothered by a mattress he was hocking....

    Good Day!

    The only info I've given about myself is that I like the Howard Stern Show. I thought there wasn't suppose to be any personal attacks on these forums?

    To my understanding his contract was up july 1st and they didnt want to renew... not completley them pulling him, they just decided not to renew the show... It wasnt that great anyways, it was just bits of his radio show crammed into a 30 minute TV show, censored (if you liked girls flashing themselves on tv with big blocks over them, i guess it was a great show but otherwise, kinda a waste of space like those informercials on half the cable channels over nights)

    Wow. You sure made my point with your comment about Paul Harvey. Did you think Howard Stern will make it to the Radio Hall of Fame? No way. Sure Stern makes money. But so does Larry Flynt. It's really easy to do what Howard does on the radio. Anyone could do what he does. It's not so easy to be like Paul Harvey.

    And there was no personal attack on you. If you were offended, you need to grow some thicker skin.
