Howard is coming back live tomorrow. They're still off for their winter vacation. Today they played more ''Best of 2016'' segments. Here's what they played today:
Today's show was over around 11:15am.
Howard and the guys were back from vacation this morning. Howard started the show wishing Fred and Robin a happy new year. Howard said he had 9 and a half hours of sleep last night. He said that never happens. He said he's shot out of a cannon. He said he's behind on Westworld. He said that show puts him right to sleep. He said he doesn't know what the fuck is going on in that show. Robin said it's so good. Howard said he's having a hard time with it. Robin said it's one of the most unpredictable shows. Howard said he wants something to happen already. He said he passed out at 8 o'clock last night. He said he was unconscious after watching it. He said he's' only about 5 episodes in. Robin said it's ended already. Howard said he can't keep up.
Howard said he almost didn't come back to work. He said they've been away a while. He said he wants to sit down with Sirius and say it's over. He said he's there though. He said Robin brought him back. He said he knows she likes this. They have 4 years of shows left. Howard asked how many they've done together. Howard said maybe 60,000 shows. Robin asked if it can be that many. Howard tried to do the calculation. He said maybe 200 a year for 30 years. Robin said that would be about 60,000. Fred said it's only 6,000. Robin said that's terrible. Robin said they thought they did so much more.
Howard stuck with 60,000. He said his buddy Pat asked him the other day how many they've done. Howard said he figured they'd been together for 30 years. Robin said it's 35 years. Howard said they do 200 a year to play it safe. He said they came up with 60,000. Robin said it sounds reasonable. Howard said he only went to Boston University. Howard said in any case he's sticking with 60,000. He said it sounded way more impressive.
Howard said he came back because of Robin because she enjoys it and why stop Robin's enjoyment. He said he was going to fake his own death to get out of it. Robin said so many people died. Howard said they did. He said Joey Boots died. Robin said this is why you can never call it. They were worried about High Pitch Erik. Howard said Joey was discussing health with Erik. Howard said he figured they were going to be like Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds and Erik would be dead within 24 hours. Howard said he broke the news to Jimmy Kimmel. Howard said Jimmy was the one who asked if they were going to be like Carrie and her mom.
Howard said Erik is coming in to talk about Joey but he may ban him because he didn't do it there first. Howard said Erik did so many other TV shows.
Howard said he has to do a tribute to Joey. He said he was 49 years old. He looked like he was 70. Robin said he wasn't that old. Howard said he passed away on December 23rd. Howard said he didn't show up for his podcast. Howard said High Pitch Erik went to find Joey and they found Joey slumped over in his room. Howard said he didn't think Joey was a Wack Packer. He said he was too normal for that.
Howard had a clip from Joey's podcast where Erik called in to let them know what was going on. Howard said a police spokesman says he passed away from natural causes. Howard said they're still waiting to find out what happened. Howard said he's not sure what got him.
Howard played the clip of Erik calling in and telling the guys that Joey was found in his apartment cold and slumped over with no pulse. The guys stopped the show to talk to Erik off the air.
Howard said he lies that they had to ''get off the air'' because it's a podcast. Howard said it's the most exciting thing to happen on a podcast and they ended it. Robin said they didn't even trust Erik enough to believe that Joey was dead. Robin said that's sad. Howard said he loved that the announcement was barely able to be made out. Howard did an impression of Erik mumbling.
Howard said Joey's death was covered everywhere. Howard said he was impressed with the coverage it was getting. Howard read a list of the papers and networks that carried the story. Howard said some of the headlines were misleading. Howard said drudge thought that it was Baba Booey who died. Howard said people weren't that broken up when they thought it was Gary who died. Howard said the people who heard about it were just saying they were sorry to hear the passing. He said he threw his hands up because he was on vacation. He said he just let people believe it was Gary. Howard said some called Joey a co-star. He said it's really sad because he liked Joey.
Howard had a clip from a FOX local station reporting Joey's death. He said they were putting him in with George Michael and people like that. Howard said Joey would have been thrilled with this report. Howard played the clip and the news reporters were talking about Joey passing away. Howard said Joey was really big in Dallas. He said they just wanted this year to be over with when they heard of Joey's passing.
Howard said on FOX in Los Angeles the news anchor remembered being Baba Booey'd by Joey. Howard played another clip where the reporter remembered Joey doing the Baba Booey thing to her. She said she was live in New York doing her thing and Joey came over and said what he said. She said she yelled ''Excuse me!'' and it turned out to be Joey Boots. She said it lives on in infamy on the Stern Show. She said he was just 49. Another anchor said the Wack Packers don't have longevity. Howard asked how nice that was. Howard said Oprah did a 2 hour retrospective. Howard said he was going to do that but she beat him to it.
Howard said there you go. He asked if there could be a better tribute to Joey. Howard said Joey didn't know his impact on the world. Robin said he kept trying and didn't know how much he had done.
Howard said he ran into Dr. Oz on vacation. He said he came up to him saying he was sorry to hear the loss of his colleague. He said he told him he was a guy who called in but then he just said ''thank you, thank you.'' He said Joey was important. He said give him that.
Robin asked if there will be a memorial. Howard said hold that thought. He said they have to get Erik in there. He asked if he'll be in the In Memorium at the Oscars since Jimmy is hosting.
Howard said he has to continue his retrospective. Howard said Erik was interviewed on News 12. He said Erik is available to anyone. He said it's weird to see him interviewed on a news program. Howard played the clip and Erik was talking about Joey's death. Howard said they treat him like he's normal. He said they never talk about his voice. Howard said he's making news like it's in the Bizzaro world. Howard kept playing the clip and said he's waiting to hear them bring up the Mickey Mouse voice. Howard played more of the clip and Erik talked about how Joey was like a brother.
Howard said Erik didn't change his clothing for any of the interviews. He said he was a big slob on TV. In the clip Erik talked about how he found Joey dead. Howard talked about how they called him Erik Bleaman instead of High Pitch Erik. Howard said that it would be great if they had an outtake of Erik asking for money from her.
Howard said Joey's name was Joey Bassolino. Howard said he gave himself the name Joey Boots. Howard said he was trying to get into a bar and he was wearing Fry Boots and the bouncer told him he can't get in so he told the bouncer that he's named Joey Boots and told the guy to ask around. Howard said he would walk around behind people yelling ''Baba Booey, Baba Booey Howard Stern's Penis.'' Howard played an example of Joey doing that during a broadcast. He had a booming voice that made it through over the sounds of the crowds at the New Years Eve ball drop.
Howard said Joey's canvas was getting on the air. Howard said he had a booming voice that got on the air. Howard said it was loud and forceful. Howard played a song parody about Joey's death.
Howard said Elton John is working on a song for the Oscars. Robin said one of the things they haven't said is that Joey made a big announcement on the show. Howard said he's getting to that. Howard played another clip of Joey's work yelling out Baba Booey on a newscast. IN the clip Joey kept yelling it out while the reporter asked him to stop. Howard said there was no stopping Joey once he got started.
Howard said in 2014 Joey was arrested for disorderly conduct. Howard said he took the case to trial and the judge said it was legal for what he did and it was considered a landmark case. Howard played a clip of Joey talking about that on the show.

Howard said he's going to miss Joey because of that. He asked how you get money from a rehab commercial and used it on coke.
Howard said Joey made a big announcement about being gay on the show. Howard played a clip from that day when Joey admitted he's gay. Howard said they didn't believe him. He said they brought in a gay porn star and he made out with Joey. Howard said there was a lot of shit going on that day. He said he blanked all of that out so he doesn't remember.
Howard said Joey claims he banged about 30 women. One of them was Lisa Lampanelli. Howard had a clip of Lisa talking about how Joey drove her to sleep with black guys. She said he was awful at sex. She explained that he had convinced her that he was someone who could get her on the Stern show and she slept with him but it was bad. She said that made her go to black guys.
Howard said Joey loved High Pitch Erik. Howard said they lived in the same building and Joey would do anything for Erik. Howard said Joey rubbed ass cream on his ass. Howard played a clip of Joey talking about doing that for Erik.
Howard said Joey made it clear that he didn't have romantic feelings for Erik. He had affection for him though. Howard played another clip of Joey talking about that.
Howard said Joey really did care about Erik. He said they did a second Craptacular and Erik wanted to give up and not shit anymore but Joey kept him in it. Howard said Joey told him to stay with it and gave him some of his Calamari to keep him in it. Howard played a clip of Erik and Joey talking to them about the Calamari thing.

Howard said David Bowie didn't even get that kind of tribute. Howard said Fred is over there weeping in the corner. Robin said she was wondering when Joey was on last. Howard said it wasn't that long ago. Howard said all this week they're going to have a tribute to Joey on Sternthology. Howard said he was a good friend to the show. Howard said he never quit the show. Robin said most do.
Howard said even Beetlejuice knows to give them the exclusive. Erik said he did that because they were on vacation. Howard asked if he could have waited. Erik said he's there today. Howard laughed.
Robin asked how it's been for him the last few days. Erik said he wanted to hurt himself when it happened. Howard said he was worried that he was going to die like Debbie Reynolds did when her daughter Carrie fisher died. Erik said he did want to hurt himself. He said he thought Joey was sleeping but he touched him and he was telling him to wake up and he didn't answer. Howard asked if he saw the body. Erik said he did. He said he was slumped over in his chair. Howard said he can see he can visualize it now.
Howard asked Erik if he was at odds the last couple of months. Erik said he was upset with him because he was talking to a girl and Joey didn't like him doing that. He said they were out of touch for a couple of weeks. He said they had reconciled before he died though. Howard asked if that's because he broke up with the girl. Erik said he doesn't talk to her now. Howard asked what happened there. Erik said it was the girl who was there with him (April). Howard said they had a falling out over her. Howard said Erik stopped seeing her and Joey came back to Erik.
Howard said Joey used to put ass cream into his ass. Robin asked what she did for Erik. Erik said all she did was sleep with other guys and not him. Howard asked if Joey was happy that he came back. Erik said he was very happy. Howard said they were back together after that. Robin asked if Erik stopped doing the podcast during that time. Erik said he was off of that for 2 weeks.
Howard asked Erik what he was doing that day that Joey died. Erik said he was watching Blue Bloods. Howard asked if he jerks off to the show. Erik said not the repeats. He said he only does that with the new episodes. Howard said Mark Wahlberg is coming in tomorrow. Erik said he's not a big fan of his. He said he likes Donnie. He said he's not a fan of Mark at all.
Howard asked if he would blow Mark first if he could get to Donnie. Erik said he sees him on the set of Blue Bloods. Erik said that's a touch question. Howard said he has to get his mind off of Joey somehow. Howard asked him to think about it and give an honest answer. Erik said he would do it if he got to hang out with Donnie the whole day.
Howard got back to the story about Erik finding Joey dead. Erik said he was home and the guys from the podcast contacted him. He said Gonzo was part of it. Howard had Gonzo on the phone. Howard asked if he was close to Joey. Gonzo said he was. He said he was a good friend and a sweet guy. Howard asked Erik about going to find Joey. Erik said he got the building receptionist to help him get into Joey's apartment to find out if he was okay. Howard asked if she said they can't go in there because he might just be out. Erik said he said to Gonzo to call his phone and he could hear it through the door. Howard said that's smart. He said he must have gotten that from Blue Bloods.
Erik said he heard the phone through the door and he knocked and didn't get an answer. He said they both went upstairs to his apartment. Howard said he thinks this is pretty smart for someone who is tested as 'dull' at a 64 IQ. Howard said he thinks he's only at about an 80 himself and he wasn't thinking like that.
Howard asked what they did next. Erik said they knocked and said his name a few times. Then they opened the door. He said he walked over and he wasn't on his bed. Howard said you can't miss him if he's in the room. Erik said the room is big. He said he had a lot of junk in the room. He said he looked over and saw him slumped in his chair. He said he tried to wake him up and he didn't respond. Erik said the building receptionist said he was cold and had no pulse. They both went downstairs. Howard asked how long he was in there. Gonzo said it had to be within 12 hours because he was active on Twitter. Erik said he was stiff. He said he had called him the night before and he had a cold.
Howard asked if they called 911. Erik said they did. He said the fire department showed up. He said they love Howard and the guys. He said around 9:30 they pronounced Joey dead. He said then EMS and cops came. He said detectives came too. He said they asked him questions. Howard asked if he was a suspect since he was one of the last ones to see him alive. Erik said no. He said they asked him questions about his Twitter and Facebook accounts. Howard said maybe they were looking to find if he had a suicide note or anything. Howard asked if the fire department guys were hot. Erik said he wasn't looking at them like that.
Gonzo said they had to bribe Erik with 50 bucks and a pizza to go check on Joey. Erik said he doesn't like it when people bother him. He said he was being respectful. Gonzo said Joey is usually punctual. He said he was a little worried but they thought he had over slept. He said they had a fan call in to offer the 50 bucks and pizza. Erik said his name is Neil Thomas. He said he sent him 50 bucks to help him out. Howard asked if he got his pizza too. Erik said he did.
Howard said he never thought that Joey would go before Erik. Howard asked if he thinks that he was partying way too hard. Erik said he did party too much. Howard said he's fascinated by this pizza thing. Howard asked when he ate that pizza. Erik said it was at 4 in the morning. He got it around 9 at night. He said it sat around and he ate it later. Howard said he was able to eat. Erik said he was. He said he wasn't able to do it before they found him. Howard asked Erik about wanting to do himself in and what stopped him. Erik said it's because of Joey. He said Joey wouldn't want him to do that. Howard said he agrees about that. Howard said he had a pizza to eat too.
Howard asked who told Mariann. Erik said he did. He said he thinks she's on the phone too. He said Marfan Mike left him a nice message too. He said he was sorry for the loss. He said he wants to say thank you to Marfan Mike. Howard said he knows they were at odds but now he's being nice to him. Erik said he knows Joey's death is very upsetting. He said he wants to tell the listens to stop calling him a murderer. He said monotone Matt is doing that. Gonzo said that's a fake account. Erik said Ass Napkin Ed is claiming he's taking donations from people too.
Howard said he has to get to Ed then. Howard got Ass Napkin Ed on the phone and Ed said that he's not doing anything. He said that the homicide detectives visited Erik's room. He said he threatens to kill people. Howard said Ed posted about how he's white trash and he's accepting donations on the behalf of his family. Erik said that's not true. Ed said that he's always threatening to kill people. He said he stole a credit card and got arrested for fraud. Erik said that was years ago. Ed said that Erik also called him a few days before and said he would burn in hell. Erik said he was making matters worse for him.
Howard asked if Joey had a will. Erik said he did not have a will. Howard asked if he will inherit everything. Erik said no. He said his brother backed him up on Twitter. He said his brothers are defending him. Ed said that Erik is also saying that he's his next of kin by calling himself his brother. Erik said that's not true. He said it's just that they were good friends. Gonzo said this is all over that chick that he wanted to fuck. Ed said Erik is cock blocking him.
Howard said maybe Ed should apologize to Erik. Ed said he's not going to do that. Ed said he has screen shots of people who are helping Erik out. Gary said that Shuli knows about this. He said that Erik asks for money in general and he's not collecting for Joey. Ed said that he made that clear. He said some of it is for himself and some of it is for Boots. Robin asked if people send him money. Erik said he does voice mail messages and things like that. Erik said he did something nice and held a vigil for Joey. He said he didn't get any money from those people.
Howard asked how many showed up. Erik said maybe 15-20. He said that it was in the building in one of the living rooms. He said that he said some words. Gonzo said there is a video out there of it. Howard asked if Shuli taped it. Erik said he came later.
Ed said that Erik called from Joey's phone. Erik said he did not. Shuli came in using a cane. He slipped on ice and fucked up his knee.
Shuli said he was at the vigil. He said it wasn't a big gathering. He said there were a lot of people from the building there. He said it had that methadone clinic kind of vibe. He said that there is no truth to what Ed is saying about Erik getting money in Joey's name. Ed said he has threatened people. Shuli said he has no proof of that. Ed said he has evidence. Shuli said he has never stopped asking for money. He said he's accusing him of killing Joey too. Ed asked why the homicide detectives are questioning him. Erik said they're just detectives. He said they're not searching his room. He said they're searching Joey's room. Ed said he's not apologizing for that. He doesn't do that.
Shuli said the guy who is accusing Erik fell in his own shit bucket a few weeks ago. Ed said Erik is cock blocking him too. Shuli said maybe making teeth in the microwave is cock blocking himself. Ed said he doesn't think so.
Erik said that Fred the Elephant Boy is also writing bad stuff about him and Joey. Howard said he's holding a grudge in death. Erik said Mariann went to war with him the day after over that. Howard got Mariann on the phone to talk about that. Mariann said that Erik called her that night and she was up all weekend. She said that Joey always treated her so well. She said the Wack Pack is crumbling. She said she will never take calls from Fred again. She said that she was hurt by what he said. She said that she thought he was a good friend. She said that she asked him to take some stuff down and he did but she won't take his calls.
Howard said Fred the Elephant Boy was called a shitty pats retard. Mariann said he didn't have to say that Joey called her a cunt. She said that it was all good when they hung out. She said she was there for him. Howard said Fred might feel hurt that he never made peace with him. Mariann said that Fred can go fuck himself. She said she won't worry about him anymore. Howard said he noticed that Erik finished an entire orange juice over there. Erik said he didn't finish it.
Mariann said that Joey was in Bad Santa 2. She said he was at the premiere. She said that he did Baba Booey Bombs there. She said he was loving and caring and handsome. She said that's what they should talk about. She said she loves Howard and rest in peace Joey. Howard let her go after that.
Erik said he heard that Fred the Elephant Boy got a pacemaker and he tried to be nice to him after that. Howard asked if Erik has lost any weight after this. Erik said he can't stop eating. Shuli said he told him that he has to take better care of himself. Howard asked if that's the first time he saw a dead body. Erik said yes. Howard said that has to be a shock. Howard asked if he has a wake up call now. Erik said yes but he's eating more than ever. Howard asked if food is his valium. Erik said it is. Gonzo was laughing. Howard said don't send him pizza. He said that's not good for him.
Erik said he and Gonzo are going to keep doing the podcast on PodTrash.com. Gonzo said he didn't agree to that. He said he's finding out about that now.
Howard said Erik is on the verge of tears. He asked what his last words to him were. Erik said he told him he had a cold. He said they went out to dinner for Christmas and it was the week before that. Howard asked if they're doing an autopsy. Erik said they are. Howard asked who paid for diner. Erik said Joey did. He said that was his Christmas gift to him. Gonzo said Joey was always generous like that. He said he always piked up the tab for Erik.
Howard asked if Erik will be at the funeral. Erik said he thinks so. HE's not sure if he'll get to speak. Shuli said he spoke at the vigil. Howard asked how he'll keep his legacy alive. Erik said he'll think about him all the time.
Howard asked if Erik will keep the Booey Bomb going. Erik said he's not sure he wants to get arrested. Howard said that's a good point. Howard asked if he'll get a Joey tattoo. Erik said he might. Howard asked to see the tattoos he has now. He has one that says ''Only God can judge me'' and ''True Player'' and the Howard Stern fist.
Howard said he's going to miss Joey a lot. He said it always made for a great laugh when he did that Booey bomb stuff. Howard said he loved it when he called in and when he came in. He said he's going to miss the Joey Boots who would apply ass cream to High Pitch. Erik said that he came in this morning and he's always there with him. Howard said he's going to miss him very much.
Howard said he wants to tell Erik that his health is like Joey's. Howard said he said that to Joey that he had to be careful himself. Howard said it will break his heart to lose Erik. Howard said he feels he's deteriorating too. Howard said he has to stop eating so much and take care of himself. Erik said he thinks that's a good idea. Howard said they can't lose Erik too.
Howard asked Erik if he could bring back Joey or just be with Donnie for the rest of his life, which would he choose. Erik picked bringing Joey back. He said he knew Joey longer than Donnie. Howard said he and Donnie would have a puppy together. Shuli said kittens too. Erik stuck with bringing Joey back.
Howard took some calls and Chad from St. Louis said that Joey was a good guy but he could be an asshole at times. Howard told him to stick to the nice part. Howard took a call from a woman who said she was at the vigil and the building Erik lives in is really nice. Howard said that was a nice tribute to the building.
Howard took a call from a guy who calls himself Bobo from California. he's the guy that got Erik the pizza. He said the pizza was more than just a pizza. He said it was 4 hamburger patties, a veal parm hero and 2 bottles of Pepsi. Howard asked if he really ate all of that. Erik said he can't help it. Howard asked if he ate it all at once. Erik said he had some the next day. Howard asked if he shit it all out at once. Erik said he did a few days later. Howard asked if he clogged the bowl. Erik said it all went down.
Howard asked Erik if he ate the pasta and burger patties. Erik said he had 2 of the patties but kept the pasta. Shuli said he had the deep fried patties. Howard asked what the bill was. Bobo from California said it was about 45 dollars. Erik said Bobo is a nice guy too. Howard said they must have thought that was for a family. Howard said the delivery boy is on the phone too. Howard took the call from the guys in the back who said they had more pizzas for Erik downstairs. He said they have a calzone shaped like a tombstone.
Howard said that's their tribute to Joey. Howard said they did over an hour and 20 minute long tribute. Howard asked Erik if his shit is like reddish. Erik said it's normal. Shuli said it must be loose. He said he remembers the Craptacular. He said he'd shit and the second to last shit he was down 12 ounces to Joey and in the last one he did a 12 ounce and then 4 more. Howard asked if it pokes out of the water. Erik said it does. He said he has to flush like 12 times.
Erik gave the list of Chinese food he orders from the Chinese take out. Howard was cracking up at what he was talking about. Shuli said Joey is up there looking down asking why he's there and Erik is still down there.
Howard said that some of the news reports were treating Joey as important as George Michael and Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds. Gonzo said he'd bet he got more clicks than they did. He said he thinks Joey would expect all of this too.
Shuli asked if Erik still goes to the Chinese buffet. Erik said he won't be able to go now that Joey is gone. He ran down a list of what they'd eat. Erik said Joey would get beer. Howard cut him off saying that he has Mayor de Blasio on the phone. Erik said ''Oh fuck.'' Howard got him on and it was one of the guys in the back. Erik said he doesn't like de Blasio. Howard let them argue for a few seconds but cut fake de Blasio off.
Erik wondered if Donald Trump knows about this. Howard said he's sure he does. Erik said he wants to talk to him about his transition. Howard said he should stick to the Joey Boots funeral.
Robin asked if Erik called Joey's family. Erik said he thinks the police did that. He said they were calling his phone and the police answered that.
Howard thanked Gonzo for calling in. Gonzo talked about how nice Joey was and what he did for him. Howard said he's repeating himself now. He let Gonzo go.
Howard said it's like losing his left arm. He said Joey and Erik were like two peas in a pod. Howard asked if he can go on. Erik said he even helped him tie his shoes. Robin asked if he can tie them himself. Erik said not really. Shuli said he has to fall back on the bed to do it. He said it's fascinating to watch. Howard asked what he's going to do now. Erik said he has his health aide to help him. Howard said Joey was a big help to Erik. He put ass cream in his ass. Erik said he did that with a Q-tip. Erik had trouble doing that and wiping. Erik said he can do that now.
Howard said he heard a lot about what Joey did for Erik but not anything about what Erik did for Joey. Erik said he did bring him stuff when he was in the VA hospital. He said he brought him his wallet. Robin laughed.
Howard asked if Erik has any final words. Erik said he's going to miss Joey from the bottom of his heart but he will be with him forever and ever. Howard played a tribute song parody for Joey as he wrapped up.
Howard played a bit where the guys asked some people on the street to pretend to be witnesses to a Santa going on a rampage.
Howard also played a Celebrity Apprentice bit with phony Arnold Schwarzenegger rehearsing his lines for the show.
They played a clip of High Pitch Erik doing a job interview thing. They went to break after that.
Howard said Zsa Zsa Gabor died too. She was 99 years old. Howard said they thought she was dead already. Howard said that someone asked if he died would his mother die of a broken heart. Howard said no way. He said she'll stick around. Howard did an impression of his mother talking about him doing things that she didn't tell him to do so she's not going.
Robin said that Debbie Reynolds did have some health issues. Howard asked if she didn't die of a broken heart then. Robin said she's not saying that. She said she was taken to the hospital during that time. Howard did more of his mother's voice and had her talking about Howard dying and how she's not going. He had his dad saying he should have taken better care of himself. Robin asked why Ben and Ray were hanging on. Howard had them talking about how they don't even know.
Robin said some people just want to live. Robin said her mom died at 90. She said when she visited her in the hospital she said she didn't think she was going to make it to 100 and she wondered why she'd even want to. Robin said she wasn't even having a good time. Howard said you can see why Sumner Redstone would want to. He said he has people who straddle him and clip his toenails.
Howard said they rang in the new year with Gary's Phlem song. He played a song parody to the tune of Auld Lang Syne.
Howard asked if Robin did anything on New Year's Eve. Robin said she went to see Othello on Broadway. She said that it was Daniel Craig and Daniel Oyelowo were in it. Robin said John Lithgow was there too. She said as she was leaving she met a guy who she had met with Ralph who was with John Lithgow. She was brought back stage to meet the actors. Robin said as they were walking in she saw this tiny lady and it turned out to be Sally Field. She got to hang out with all of them the night before New Year's Eve. Robin said it was an exciting day. Robin said they were all nice and pleasant. Robin said she gave up trying to explain who she was.
Howard said he's glad he wasn't there. Robin said he would have loved it. Howard said he'd rather hang out with High Pitch Erik. Howard said Sally Field had no idea who she was? Robin said she did when she explained who she was. Robin said John Lithgow was excited to see her but Daniel Craig and Daniel Oyelowo had no idea who she was.
Robin asked what Howard did. Howard said he went out to dinner at 6:30 and then went to a party. He said they stayed for 10 minutes and then he told Beth he can't handle this so they left. He said they were in bed by 8. He said they tried to stay up but he couldn't do it. Robin said she saw they had New Year's Rockin' Eve in Prime Time. She said no one can watch that. Howard said he did. He said the whole show was a train wreck. He said that the Mariah Carey thing was a mess. Robin said everyone is blaming everyone else for that.

Howard said Megyn was offered 20 million to stay at FOX News from what he read. Howard said she was doing to have some perks like hosting the debate and all of that. Howard said he likes Christ Wallace too. He said now Megyn is going to NBC and they seduced her by giving her $15 million but the role is unclear. She'll have a daytime talk show. He said on FOX that works. He said daytime TV on NBC doesn't work. Howard said it's a different thing. Howard said the demographics don't work. He said that people aren't tuning in for that kind of thing. He said that's what they're looking for on FOX News.
Howard said being a news person is just like any other show business job. He said it's no different than a Kardashian. Howard said that these agents don't know what the fuck they're doing. Howard said they call themselves agents but they don't know what they're doing. Howard said it's rare that you meet someone who knows what they're doing. Howard said they don't know better than you do. Robin said Howard probably knows better. Howard said he would have used NBC to leverage a better deal out of FOX. Robin said that was a perfect place for her. Howard said it was.
Howard read that she's going to host a show that will compete against 60 Minutes. Howard said now she's got 50 jobs over there. Howard said she's going to have a lot of work there.

Howard said when he read that Arnold was taking over that show he knew it wasn't going to work. Howard said he's like a giant puppet. He said you need a brilliant guy like Ivan Reitman tell him what to do. Robin said you have a hit if you have that. Howard said you get ''Twins'' if you have them working together. Howard said a dating show with Arnold and 20 maids would be good.
Howard took a call from a guy who said Howard and Robin are motivated by money. Howard cut him off and said he's really not. Robin said she's turned down money to stick with that show. Howard said they offered Robin a ton of money to stay with the Grease Man in Washington DC. He said Robin turned that down. Howard said he wanted her not to take that job because he wanted to work with her but he asked if she was high when she turned it down. Howard said she took a shitty job in Baltimore. Howard said Robin is not motivated by money.
Howard said no one got into radio for money when he first started out. He said he thought that it would be a high of $250 a week. He said that he didn't get into it for money. Howard said he's not even sure why he's in it now.
The caller said maybe things were toxic for Megyn over at FOX. Howard said it's toxic everywhere. Howard said it sucks everywhere. Howard said if NBC smells failure with Megyn they're going to discredit her. Howard said the guy who hired her can't have that shit pinned on him so he's going to discredit her if she fails. Howard asked who it is that runs NBC. Gary threw out a few names but he didn't get it right. Jason came up with Steve Burke. Howard said he's right. He said Steve will go after her if she fails. Howard said then they'll find someone else to fire on top of that.
The caller asked Howard about his NBC days and how his parents were on a TV commercial. Howard said they were. Howard said NBC made a commercial with his parents. The caller said that he remembers what they said. Howard said he thinks they were actually actors and not his real parents. Howard said he can't even remember. He said he thinks he liked the actors better than his real parents.
Robin asked what else people were asking him about in the news. Howard said there were a bunch of things. Howard said there was a story about a woman who is being pardoned for some crime she committed where a cop was killed. Howard said they say she's a model prisoner now but let her have a good life in her next life. Howard said Governor Cuomo may know something else about this story that he doesn't. Howard said the woman was the driver in the crime. Howard said he read that she was laughing in court when the case was going on. Robin said she could have prevented the crime so she was part of it and she should serve the time.
Howard said he only reads half the article so he's only going on half the information. Robin said a couple of cops were killed and just one does it for her.
Robin also mentioned that Charles Manson is out of prison and in the hospital. Howard said the headline he was reading says ''Satan calls for the devil.'' He said that doesn't make sense. He said that guy could operate. Howard said he has a hot, young chick that he wants to marry. Howard said he's in jail and he's got a girl. Howard said he's a cocksman like Ronnie. He said it must be the swastika carved in his head.
Howard said he got a lot of email about Joey Boots. He said someone asked how long these Wack Packers can live. Howard said Rappin' Granny was in her 90s. Howard said Blue Iris was 62. He said Crackhead Bob was 56. Joey was 49. Howard said Celestine was 41. Howard said Kenneth Keith Kallenbach was 39. He said Hank was also 39. Howard said Eric the Actor was 39 too. Howard said Big Foot Matt was only 32. He had a weird head and other problems. Howard said his head looked like it had been in a vice. Howard said he has been quoted saying that having a Wack Packer is like having a dog. You know you'll outlive them.
Howard had Ham Hands Bill on the phone and asked how old he is. Bill said he's 42. Howard said we probably don't have much time. Bill said he wanted to say that he and Joey met at the VA hospital 4 times last year. He said he saw him a few days before he died and he was in pain and he regrets not asking him more questions. He said he was up there to have some things done. Howard asked if he lost his legs in the military. Bill said he was in the Army. Howard said he didn't know that.
Howard said Bill was on the show the first time and won a Jet Ski. He said they didn't know he was in a wheelchair. Howard said he was happy about the win though. Bill said he made some money off of that. He said that he kept it a secret. Howard thanked him for the nice words about Joey. Bill said he feels super bad for not asking more questions. He said that they did some tests with him. Howard said he only understands a word out of a few of what Bill says.
Howard took a call from a guy who asked if he's going to allow Steve from Florida (Bobo) to call in and talk about Joey Boots. Howard said he is banned from the show for 2 weeks so they can't break that. Howard said Steve did call in on the voicemail and he can play that. Howard said they can listen to his voicemail but not when he calls in. Howard said he has to find it. Howard found the clip and played Steve from Florida talking about Joey's death. In the clip Steve said he's hating the new name already. Steve said he had a few words to read about Joey's passing. He read from something he wrote about Joey. Steve had some nice words about Joey. Howard said somehow he feels worse. He said that was worse than his essay. Howard said he likes when he says he was ''wery sad.''
Howard took a call from Mariann from Brooklyn who said they should have some kind of award for Joey at The Gathering of the Stupid. Howard said he likes how they do 50 tributes on Howard 100 and 101 and then she has more to add. Howard said he feels like a dick like he didn't do it. Howard said she should have her own show to produce. Howard told her to stop producing his show and go make breakfast for her family.
Howard said the Gathering is all fucked up now because High Pitch Erik went and made friends with Marfan Mike. Howard said he has to rethink that whole thing. Howard kept goofing on Mariann for suggesting more stuff for the show for Joey Boots. Howard said they have a tribute to Joey all week long on Sternthology on Howard 101. He made up more stuff that she could have him do. He was doing an impression of Mariann as he did that. Howard played a song that High Pitch Erik sang for Joey. He kept going with the Mariann stuff too.
Howard said Joey was very generous with his time. Howard said he would go around yelling about Howard Stern's penis. Howard said he was great. Howard did more of his Mariann voice and had him doing more tribute stuff. Howard said she's a character.
Robin asked if they have any further information on Joey's funeral. Howard said not yet. He said Gary is monitoring that. Robin asked if he'd ever go to a Wack Packer funeral. Howard said most families don't want them there. Howard said they're asked to stay away.
Howard took a call from a guy who said yesterday they were talking about the Beatles song ''She Said, She Said'' and he has some information on that. He told Howard that they were tripping on acid and Peter Fonda was there and George Harrison came up to him and told him he knows what it's like to be dead and claimed that he died 3 times when he was a kid and shot himself in the stomach. He said that's where that song came from. Howard said it doesn't make sense to him. The caller said they took the dark part of that story and turned it into an argument.
Fred said that he has to get this out about Joey. He said Joey said things about him. Howard said he's zoned out now. Fred was still talking but Fred Norris was playing snoring sounds. Howard said Joey called Fred the Elephant Boy a shitty pants retard. Fred said he doesn't like being called a retard. He said he never got along with him because of that.
Howard said Joey called him some names and he wants to keep it real by balancing things out. Robin asked if he just said it once is that an indication of who Joey was. Elephant Boy said something unintelligible about that. Elephant Boy mentioned Mariann too but I'm not sure what he said about her. Howard said for a mush mouth he sure is long winded.
Howard asked how old Elephant Boy is. Elephant Boy said he's 58. Howard said he just had a pacemaker put in and he had to be defibrilated. Elephant Boy said he did. He said he had to get a pacemaker and he almost blacked out before the procedure. He mentioned Mariann again but Howard said we get it and cut him off. They played some music to play him off the stage. Elephant Boy apologized to Mariann as he was being played off.
Howard said there was a lot to that story but he doesn't have the patience to hear it all. Howard played the Cheap Trick ''She Said, She Said'' cover song. Howard said this is so beautiful. He said he knows a fact about it. He said McCartney didn't play on the Beatles version. He said George played bass for the song. He said they had a fight and Paul left. Howard said that peace and love shit was all bullshit.
Howard said even when even when Ringo does his ''Peace and Love'' thing it's said with anger. Fred played Ringo's clip where he's doing the peace and love thing. Howard said that is an angry peace and love. He said it's more like he's saying fuck you and eat shit cock suckers.
Howard said that's his favorite clip. He said it sounds like he's saying anything but Peace and Love. He said it's like Rot in Hell, Rot in Hell. Fred said it's like Lick my Balls, Lick my Balls. Howard said he has to take a break. He said he's ready to go back to bed now. He said he stayed up late to watch The Bachelor last night. They went to break after that.
Howard said he has so much to talk about and he's not sure where to begin. He said he began an hour ago but he has more. He said he thought when he came there to satellite that he'd have no commercials and he'd just talk for 4 hours. He said he would only take breaks to pee.
Howard said he has some Underdog clips to play. He said she was on some cable access show or something. Howard said it might be an internet show. He said she's on this show called Checkerboard Kids and they have her sing Christmas songs in Latin. Howard said he watched the whole show and he had to fast forward a lot. Howard said then Shuli showed up. He said he just kind of walked in on the show like he walks in on this show. He said he does it like he walks in on this show and he's not even introduced.
Howard played a clip of Underdog Lady (Suzanne Muldowney) talking about why she sings Christmas songs in Latin. She said it started in high school. She said she was translating them herself and she wanted to perform them in concert. Now she's able to do it. Robin said she laments for her sad life. Howard said he hopes she's okay.
Howard played another clip where Underdog has some trouble singing one of the songs. In that one Underdog was singing but then she stops and the piano keeps going. She started again. Robin said it's like Mariah Carey. Howard laughed as the clip played. Howard said nothing slows her down. He said she wasn't thrown by that at all. Howard said that's Billy Joel on piano. He said that would be so great if it really was him. Robin asked why she keeps it in that key because she can't hit those notes. Howard said he heard she's performing at Trump's inauguration. He said that would be so great. Howard played more of the audio and said this is in the key of crazy.
Howard played another clip of Underdog Lady talking about why she's not going to sing about giving presents or anything like that. Howard said she will assassinate any snow man and Santa Claus.
Howard said at one point she's singing in front of a green screen and she had no idea what it did. Howard said she was totally blown out by it. Howard played a clip of Underdog saying she doesn't see the backgrounds on the curtain. She said it's marvelous technology. Howard said she liked it. He said he watched it and she liked it. Howard said if you took her to the new Star Wars her head would explode.
Howard played another clip where Underdog Lady does ''Language Caroling.'' Howard said he's not sure what was going on there. Underdog said it was Christmas Carols in Latin with Suzanne Muldowney. She explained that it was her teacher that may have invented that language caroling.
Howard said Shuli was there and he can't explain why. Howard said he just shuffled right on. He said no one explained who he was. Robin said maybe he was being paid in air time. Howard said Shuli got Underdog riled up and talking about the nativity. Howard played the clip and said if there's a live microphone somewhere Shuli will be on it. Underdog was talking about how there's too much emphasis on Santa Claus. Howard said the host knows how to treat her and get her to talk about that stuff.
Howard said this show was hours long. He said this is the highlights. He had her singing ''We Wish You a Merry Christmas'' in Latin.
Howard said it's like Christmas in Klingon. He said he loves her. He wishes her a long life. Howard said that would devastate him if he died. Robin said she hopes she lives before she dies.
Howard played a phony phone call the guys made to a radio show using clips of Ed Torian asking questions about being gay. The hosts of the show got upset with the questions and hung up. Then they took another call and it was Ed asking more questions about gay stuff again. They played an Amy Poehler asking Tan Mom a question bit. They went to break after that.
Howard came back and said this is a great song. He said that Jack Bruce is with Joey Boots. Howard did a live commercial read after that.
Howard said he has the top 5 songs. Robin said they should try to keep up with things. She said there are people called Super Agers and they have the same mental alacrity as 25 year olds in their older years. Howard said he has the list of the top 5 songs. Howard said he can do one better. He has the top 5 songs of 2016. He said the number 5 song was 21 Pilots ''Stressed Out.'' He played some of that song and then Beetlejuice singing it.
Howard said that the number 4 song of 2016 was ''Work'' by Rihanna featuring Drake. He played some of the song and said he doesn't like it when she goes ''Der, der, der, der, der.'' Howard said he has Mark the Bagger singing that song too. He played some of that.
Howard said the number 3 song for 2016 was Drake's ''One Dance.'' He played the song and said Drake is the guy who was pretending to bang J-Lo for publicity. Robin said she thought it was Serena. Howard said he's talking about J-Lo.
Howard said Justin Bieber's ''Sorry'' was number 2 for 2016. He played a quick clip of his song. Howard said one of the guys said that song was written by some girl named Julia Michaels. Howard said she's like Sia writing songs and not putting them out herself. Gary said she's only 23 years old. She's putting out her own album. Howard asked Gary to find some of her stuff.
Robin looked up the J-Lo and Drake story in the news. Robin said they spent the night together on New Year's Eve. Howard played Big Foot singing ''Sorry.''
Howard said the number 1 song for 2016 was another Justin Bieber song. Howard said that guy is doing really well. That was ''Love Yourself.'' Howard asked if that chick wrote that one too. Gary said it was written by Ed Sheeran.
Fred found a Julia Michaels song and played it for Howard. Howard said she can sing. Fred played some Robin singing clips over that. Howard said she might be one of those people who can write but can't have a hit on her own. Robin said they'll see if she can carry a song to number 1. Howard said she sings backup on Justin Bieber's album. Howard played more of Bieber's ''Love Yourself'' song. Howard said he asked Ed Sheeran about writing a song and if he has a problem with it when it becomes number one. He said Ed said no. Howard had fake Harrison Ford singing ''Love Yourself.'' Howard had Mark the Bagger singing that song too.
Howard said Justin Bieber seems to be on a bad track. He said he seems to be a danger to himself. He said he's covered in tattoos and he wants to be nice but he doesn't know how. He said he feels like he's 5 minutes away from doing something that makes him dead or in jail. Robin said that Andy Cohen was talking about a run in he had with Justin and he was at a party with him and Justin turned to him asking if the party was ever going to get good. Robin said he does like to party.
Howard said George Michael was kind of lame when he was in Wham. He said then he came out as gay but you already knew that. He said just watch the video when he did that song ''Wake me Up Before You Go-Go.'' Howard said he was outed when he was arrested. Howard said then he put out some other songs and did a song with Elton John. Howard played a bunch of clips of songs that he did on his own and with Elton John. Howard said he had a great voice.

Howard said George was on the show in 1984 when he was in Wham. Howard said he was only on the show for like 5 minutes. He said he was way too consumed with himself. He said Pig Virus didn't like them having anyone in the studio anyway. Howard said may he rest in peace as well. Howard said they lost Pig Virus last year too. He later corrected himself saying it was 2014 that he died in.
Howard said Jimmy Kimmel got him a great gift. He said Jimmy is an artist and he likes to draw caricatures. He said he sent him a framed picture of Pig Virus in his yellow blazer. He said it's a good likeness and it says ''Welcome to Hell.'' Howard said it's not something he wants to see every day. He said he took it and put it on a shelf and he doesn't want to think about how bad Kevin was to them. Howard said he can't look at it.
Robin said he was an awful human being to them. Howard said he's not sure if he should throw it out or not. Robin said he should. Howard said Jimmy is going to paint him a portrait of Hitler for his birthday. Robin said people don't realize how bad things were at NBC for them.
Howard had some more George Michael songs to play. He went through a few and said they sold 100 million albums. Howard said he's not into the songs but he does recognize his talent.

He said he's sure a good version of that exists somewhere. Howard said Fred boxes to George Michael songs.
Fred found a George Michael performance from 1992 when he did ''Somebody To Love'' at Wembley Stadium. Howard had him play that. Howard said ''Wow'' after listening to a couple minutes of the song. Howard said Fred is doing push-ups to the song.

He said that Trump should deport all of the Mexicans who are working for $100 a day. He said there are white people who deserve those jobs. Steve said the guy was saying all of this with a white Santa beard on. Howard said he bets that a white guy didn't clean up the vomit that these guys left behind.
Howard played another clip of some drunk guys getting all hyped up. They were all slurring their words and talking about how wasted they were. Howard said it sounds like every day is Santa-Con for these guys. Steve said they had a list of things for people not to do there and the first one was ''Don't get drunk.''
Howard said this guy told Steve he wasn't good at his job. Howard asked if he was upset about that. Steve said he spent all day getting yelled at by drunk people and then this guy told him that at the end of the night.

Robin said it was a stupid movie. Robin said the only reason he liked it was because he got to see her naked body. Robin said he can't remember what happened in the movie. Howard told Robin what the movie was about and said it was erotic to him. Robin said it was just erotic to Howard. Robin said the movie wasn't about mutual gratification. Howard said he loved the movie. Robin said Howard likes any movie with a naked girl in it. Robin said Howard likes some music just because the videos are good because they have beautiful women in them. Howard said there may be some that he does like for that reason including Ariana Grande videos. Howard said that there are movies that have naked women in them and he didn't like.

He was making all kinds of wacky references.
Howard said he was happy to hear Sour again. Robin said maybe he had a phone restriction set up by his family.

Howard asked Robin if she really thinks that she knows his wife better than he does. Robin said Howard makes himself believe that someone is what he wants them to be. Robin said Beth wanted to stay at Gary's dinner party but Howard wanted to go. Howard said she wanted to leave too. Howard said no offense to Gary. Gary said none taken.
Howard said he would not stay in the city if he retired. He said he'd like a nice back yard and a house. Howard said they can play a Newlywed Game with Beth and Robin.

Howard said he has some audio of Jeff spilling beer on himself on Periscope. JD said that he bangs a gavel on his desk and he hit his beer and spilled it all over the floor. Howard played the clip where Jeff did that. Jeff was getting all pissed and cleaning up the mess. He was cursing as he was doing that.
Jeff said someone was asking about what his favorite Christmas movie was. He said he liked the original Scrooge. Howard asked if he wants to talk to The Lump for a minute. Jeff said sure. Howard asked The Lump who he thinks will be next. Jeff the Drunk or High Pitch Erik. The Lump said he hopes he goes next. Jeff said he does too. The Lump said how about spilling something on himself to liven this call up. Jeff said that's alright.
Howard asked Jeff how old he is. Jeff is 49. Howard said he looks 70. Howard said High Pitch Erik is up there too. Howard asked how Jeff can only be 49. Gary said he thought Jeff was old when they met him. Howard said he must have been in his 20s. Jeff said he was in his 30s. Howard asked Jeff how long he thinks he'll live. Jeff said he has a couple of years in him. The Lump said he thinks 49 and a half. Jeff said if he makes it to 50 he'll be happy.
Howard said that he should cut his goal a little shorter. The Lump said 49 and 3/4 maybe. Jeff said he'll be 50 in May. Howard said his big goal is to live 5 more months. Robin said High Pitch Erik is 45. Howard said there's another guy you think is much older. Howard said he hopes they live because they're fun on the show. Robin said they're looking at Erik but then Crackhead Bob dies. Then Joey Boots dies. Howard said he wonders how Beetlejuice lives. Howard said he has a small head and he's not sure how he's lived so long. He must have beaten the odds. The Lump said he'll gnaw himself free when Jeff dies so he can live on.
