I am a big Stern fan. I bought Sirius mainly because he was going to be coming on soon, but DAMN, he only works about 150 days a year. I can accept the four weeks vacation a year, but a four day work week? I could see if he was on teh air more than four or five hours a day, but, come on, Howard, either retire or work.

I dont think he has done a show less than 5 hrs yet, has he? And sometimes it gets close to 6 hrsI enjoy the Friday show, maybe Im in the minority on that

The past week was the 20th anniversary of the Gary Apology Tape. I can remember hearing it first on the radio which was hilarious, but then seeing it on the E! Channel took it to another level. H

Friggin Robin... They did all this preparation over the weekend, pulling of clips and dedicated a big part of the show to him this morning, and Robin didn't even know he died. Proves she does nothing

Artie was ok but the show was at it's best with Jackie Martling.

Funny replay today from late January. Artie was talking about the woman he had just recently started dating (Dana). Oh how things have changed....

Haven't heard Howard since he went to Sirius.What's the story with Artie and Dana?MrGuy

It really sucks to get in my car on Monday and find out Stern is on vacation. Apparently he announced it last week, but it must have been during the 30 minutes I missed. And to top it all off, he'll still only work 4 days a week when he gets back. So much for the "revolution" :thumbdown:

How many weeks of vacation do you get per year? I get 4, and if I am not mistaken he is on pace for about that. As for the 4 days a week, the guy does not simply put in 8 hrs a day. Think of it as the 10/80. When I worked for Shell in New Orleans we worked the 9/80 (every other Fri off)...it is certainly not unheard of.Bottom line, people expect the guy to work every day, no breaks for their entertainment...sometimes people forget that he is an everyday Joe like us on the North side of 50 that can use the occasional week off, same as us.
Woah, hold up there buddy. All I said was that it's frustrating to be surprised by tapes on Monday morning when I listened to all but maybe 30 minutes of last week and heard no mention of a vacation. I never said he shouldn't be allowed time off. But since you mentioned it, he's absolutely not on pace for just 4 weeks off; he's on pace for 9, possibly 10 (1 in January, 1 in March, 1 in May, 2 in July, 2 in August, 1 in November, 1 or 2 in December).And as for the Friday thing, it's just annoying that they think it's as good as the regular show. I guess some people like it.

:goodposting: More like 5-6 hours a day. He is almost always on past 11am. I think the friday show is at it's best when it replay the old shows from NBC and not just a weekly recap.

Considering his commercials have been cut down from 20 minutes per hour to about 7, I am not sure what your gripe is. He easily makes up for the lack of a Friday show with more programming during the other 4 days.

I'm shocked there has been no mention made of the newest wackpacker Bigfoot.I literally had tears rolling down my face from laughing so hard during his interview. I think I was reacting a bit to Artie's laugh as well during the entire ordeal.

I was :lmao::cry: . And then when Toby started to talk, :cry::lmao::cry:. Good thing I was wearing waterproof mascara. I saw a suggestion of calling Bigfoot (Mark), Jurassic Mark. :) Cabbie arguing with Riley's tapes was great.The show is better than it's ever been. :thumbup:

so cabbie is back? did he have any prison stories? I need to start DL-ing the shows.

Some stories. He's pretty messed up. He believes a chip was implanted in his head while at the prison. He also believes he was drugged.

I'd take the current amount over retirement. Thank You.

Commercial breaks have been well over 7 minutes the last few weeks. The replays from January/February seem to have far less commericals than the "new" shows. On my ride to work in the AM the breaks are now around 10 or 11 minutes.It's still the best $12 I spend a month.

Yeah they realized they didn't have time to pee, so now Fred plays a song or two during the breaks to make them longer.

Richard and Sal's prank calls to the public access TV shows are absolutely, positively the best part of the show. When Sal called the sports show to tell them about the first time his father took him to Yankee Stadium, I almost drove off the friggin' road?

:lmao::lmao::lmao:

Richard: "Hi... I've got a question about Baltimore. How's the weather down there?"

:D

Yeah, you could tell he was upset. How about Artie doing the whaaaaaa to the guy who called in and was crying that his dad had called to talk to him due to howard and his dad on the air. :lmao:

Looking forward to the Gary Roast on the 5th of October.

Not sure if any insults will be able to match skipping out on the guy's dad's funeral.
Yeah. #### staying at the hospital with Beth. Should have checked her in and left. Pretty week of Stern IMO.

Robin's impressions are always awful

She's by far my least favorite person on the show. Her impressions suck, her opnions are worthless, she is constantly rude to Artie, and she is completely unfunny. I have no idea why Howard has allowed her to ride his coattails all this time. He loves her though, so we're stuck.Richard and Sal's call was as funny today as it was yesterday (I think even funnier).

It's not like she is 10. She can handle herself at the hospital. The dude has been a loyal employee/co-worker/friend for over 20 years and he uses this as his excuse. But he bought the family lunch so that is supposed to excuse his actions. :thumbdown:

Ya know what....Im really sick of hearing Howard and Robin pick on his weight. Hes not the only fat dude out there and they harp on it way too much. Almost like the two of them are just looking to pick on him for something, because they might be a tad jealous at how well he is doing lately

Very doubtful that they are jealous.

Howard and Robin are each multi-millionaires. I don't think they would begrudge Artie anything. More likely, they are trying to insult him into getting into shape because they are worried about him. That's my guess.

I don't think they are jealous of Artie's career but I do think there is some jealousy that he doesn't need the show to be successful (ie. he's not Jackie). If Robin were to leave the show her career would be finished, (not that she needs to keep working). They are both elitists that feel the need to knock down anyone that doesn't fit their image of perfection.

And WTF is Robin to talk about someone's weight? Howard needs to buy her a mirror next time he feels the need to kiss her ### for no reason.

Yesterday on one of the early June replays they were talking about $ and Howard was sure Fred was a millionaire and Fred was denying it. How can Robin be a multimillionaire - which she must be what with the houses and cars and horses boats and whatnot - yet Fred isn't a millionaire?

I'd love to know how much Robin/Jackie/Artie/Fred/Gary make now and made at KRock.

Word to that.

I rather hear some wrap-up show, Friday show, intern show, or Riley Martin replays than the same January and June replays over and over.
