Howard Stern? Wow, is it 1990 already?

Reports emerged this week that NBC will likely announced in May that Jay Leno will The Tonight Show for good next year, to be replaced by Jimmy Fallon.

that would be funny if Jimmy Fallon took over, and 2 months later, Jay Leno's fat ass replaces him ONCE AGAIN

Apparently, even NBC has gotten tired of Leno's shiat.

NBC is on its last legs.

SNL hasn't been funny in decades, the Office hasn't been funny in at least four seasons, and once they push Leno out, the greyhairs are going to migrate to Letterman.

The ONLY show they have worth anything (now that Community has basically lost it's soul) is Parks and Rec, and even that should really wrap up in the next season or two if they want to avoid the sitcom slump that happens the longer they go on.

Howard Stern is 59 now, richer than some third world countries, and has carte blanche to do whatever the fark he wants, uncensored, on Sirius.

So logically, he will go do a show in the 12:35 AM slot under the thumb of EEEEEENNNNNNNNN-B-C.

I think it's fairly likely it could happen this time.  The previous changes always had the strong prospect of Leno switching networks influencing the decision.  But ABC looks locked into Kimmel, FOX looks to not be interested in anything by passing on Conan, it's much less likely anyone else would want him than in the past.

Conan sacrificed himself to kill the unfunny Leno beast.

David Letterman when he started Late Night - 36 years old
Conan O'Brien when he took over Late Night - 30 years old
Jimmy Fallon when he took over Late Night - 35 years old

Howard Stern in 2014 - 60 years old with a net worth somewhere in the neighborhood of half a billion dollars.

Unlikely, indeed.

Honestly, the rumors of taking over Piers Morgan's slot on CNN are more plausible than a late night show.

Strolpol: the greyhairs are going to migrate to Letterman.


No, we won't. Letterman was funny for a few years in the '80s. I'm not technically a grey-hair but I'm old enough to be one. My grandfather lived into his 80s and never got greyjhair. Well, one of them did. They other was greyer than ashes.

But I would welcome this. Jimmy Fallon is about as funny as dirt. He has an annoying personality that makes me want to change the channel as soon as I accidentally switch over to him. Even when I'm compelled to watch his show because I like one of his guests I am repulsed.

Howard Stern is an asshole, but he's very unapologetic and open about his being an asshole and he is actually sometimes funny. So why wait until 2014? Just do it now. The King of All Media deserves a late night spot - at least he deserves it more than Jimmy Fallon (or Jimmy Kimmel or Craig Ferguson or that other asshole).
 
2013-03-07 09:07:23 PM
So NBC wants to take another shot at this?
Have they got their foot in their sights?
Okay, let 'er rip...

Letterman is 65. O'Brien is 49. Who gives a shiat about Fallon? Has he reached puberty yet?

Carson was about 120 when he retired from the Tonight Show.

I think we can accept a 60 year old Howard Stern.
 
2013-03-07 09:16:38 PM
Am I the only one who thinks Stern is an over-rated, unfunny, foul-mouthed a$$hole?
I'm sorry, but I tried listening to him when I first learned of him in his early NYC days and, just thought to myself, "Where is this contributing anything positive to society?".
Didn't get his appeal then...still don't.

They wanted to replace Fallon with someone equally boring.

You misunderstand me.  My point is that Late Night is where young(ish) comedians go for their first hosting gig, not a place for somebody with 40 years in radio and 20 years of television experience.  I could see an alternate universe where Stern takes over for Letterman (or, as mentioned above, Piers Morgan), but he's way too big for Late Night.

Happy Hours: The King of All Media deserves a late night spot


You mean in addition to the WWOR show ('90-'92), the E! network show ('94-'04), and the CBS/UPN show ('98-'01)? Oh, and the current on-demand channel?

The fate of the CBS show is a pretty good indicator of the problem here: his fan demographic will watch, but middle America not only won't watch, they'll boycott. (Lots of CBS affiliates refused to even air it.)

Howard Stern is old enough to be retiring from a late night show, not taking one over. Plus his gags are just tired and boring now.

I never saw what the big deal with Stern was and have never found him entertaining but I did enjoy his book and the movie and admire his determination.

He won't make it a year on Late Night but it would be a good short term stunt for NBC while they look for a serious host.

skinink: Howard Stern is old enough to be retiring from a late night show, not taking one over. Plus his gags are just tired and boring now.


Not to mention he's given up on his radio show.  How long do you think he'll last in a late night hour that's censored?

Plus, doesn't he still have a few years on his radio contract now?

A long time ago, he used to push the boundaries of taste. I remember being astonished that he got away with bits like the Homeless Squares.

But that was a long time ago, and being edgy and indifferent to cultural taboos isn't profitable, so Stern sleepwalks through lazy, paint-by-numbers interviews that would make Larry King bored. As such, he's now a perfect fit for NBC.

That said, poor Fallon. Never a talented writer or comedian, hopefully his carefully manufactured "nerd-cred" garners him some guest spots on Community, or BBT, or Talking Dead, or other nerd minstrel shows that draw terrible ratings, yet somehow still exist.
 
2013-03-07 09:42:57 PM

I guess. He certainly doesn't need the money, but despite that and all the radio and TV spots he's held it's actually been pretty rare for him to be on in a market where I've lived. Perhaps it's a problem that Uzzah mentioned below your post but it seems to me there's enough late-night talk show hosts so they can watch something else.

I'm just saying I would tune in.

I'm probably not very representative of a viewing audience though. I think Leno and O'Brien are okay. I don't usually watch them, but if I'm channel surfing I'll give them a shot. I hate all the rest. I used to like Letterman, but that was like the '80s man. People liked Aldo Nova i the '80s too.
 
2013-03-07 10:01:35 PM
I'd believe it a little only because of his compulsive need for attention and the way he evaluates everyone's worth by how much money he or she makes.
 
2013-03-07 10:08:39 PM
Sorry.......not to put too fine a point on it but, isn't TV programming crappy enough already?

And yet he's also been judging a 4th rate TV talent show for NBC, which seems to imply he's a desperate attention whore dying to be relevant again.
 
2013-03-07 10:30:23 PM
After being raised on Carson/Cavett/Snyder/Letterman Fallon Kimmel and Conan are light weights - boys doing poorly at a man's job.

I'm not saying that Fallon isn't funny once in awhile - and readily admit that Kimmel's attraction is completely lost on me but they are still the 'local access' version of their forefathers.

Ferguson is the only one worth watching.

And Conan still sucks donkey yams.

Who is this Conan O'Brien  people speak of?   Oh yeah, that guy from the 90s.  Rachel haircuts. Grunge music.  Beanie babies.   What a crazy decade.

That's a 10-hour per week, 3-month per year job for which he gets paid $20 million annually.  Fallon makes about $5 million per year for a 60-hour per week, year-round job.  They hardly seem equal.

Nope. His shock jock shtick got old several minutes after it started.

Anything that is remotely funny about Howard has to do with the guys doing prank calls, and the wack packers. None of that shiat will play on network t.v.

I was going to rate your post "Smart" until you dissed Conan.

WTF, who names their kid Conan anyway......So he's 49 He was born in '63 then? Well, before Conan the Barbarian came out so that wasn't an influence on his parents. I can only imagine his parents were insane which probably explains a lot.

That's actual time he spends in front of the cameras.  He's spending a lot more time promoting it.   Certainly a hell of a lot more time promoting it than he does his SIRIUS show.

If Stern were really that happy just sitting on a mountain of money, why doesn't he ride off into the sunset and why did he renew his contract with Sirius?   He's obviously not happy there, given that he's suing them and puts in 10% effort ( at best).   It's because he can't give it up, and he badly wants to be relevant again.    The only time his resting heart rate gets above coma levels on his radio show is when he's raving about how someone called him out as a has been.
 
2013-03-07 10:59:11 PM
I've never understood the love for Stern, even in his heyday. He has his moments, but they are far and few between. His whole schtick is being obnoxious and tasteless. That would be fine, if it was funny or interesting. It generally isn't.

I think Stern has the market cornered on douchebags, though. He's like their hero. And that's a big market.
 
2013-03-07 11:11:37 PM
What I love about the late night TV host drama is that it is just like watching junkyard dogs fight over a rancid squirrel.  Nobody likes the dogs, nobody wants anything to do with the squirrel, so it doesn't matter who wins.

So Fallon takes HIS show back from Stern in turn. THAT would be funny.
