Howard Stern Show Q&A

About Howard and his show!

We asked Howard TV's executive producer Doug Goodstein some questions, and here are his answers!

1. Howard made his mark "pushing the envelope" and fighting the FCC. Now that he's on Sirius radio, where there basically is no envelope, does he (or his writers) find it easier or more difficult to come up with interesting and challenging material?

Well it's never been about pushing the envelope. I think it's all about trying to figure out what's going to be interesting and funny. It has gotten a lot easier now that the handcuffs are off. Now everyone on the staff is free to pursue any topic that they can think of, it's definitely freed everyone creatively.

2. How will HOWARD TV ON DEMAND be different than Howard's E! show?

First of all, Howard TV on Demand is different because it a whole channel & not just one nightly TV show. We have all the new Sirius shows, Classic Howard Stern shows from all the years at E! and even our very own original productions.

Secondly, the shows we put on Howard TV are different because the network restrictions are gone. The shows are uncensored and the lengths of the show can be whatever we want them to be...that means no longer editing out good material that didn't fit in. We can also program directly to what the fans want. If they want a whole category of sybian rides then we can do that.

3. Will this be available on DISH and DirecTV or only cable?

I haven't heard anything about Howard TV going to Dish or DirecTV.

4. What exactly does your job entail? My responsibilities entail overseeing every episode we produce. Supervising our producing & editing staff (which runs almost 24 hours a day), Making sure all our episodes get delivered to the network on time, coming up with original programming ideas, and my favorite part...holding the microphone during sybian rides.

5. For those of us who haven't seen Howard's new show on Sirius, can you tell us if it is different than his previous show (and if so, how)?

First of all, Howard TV on Demand is different than the E! show because it a whole channel & not just one nightly TV show. Howard TV has all the new Sirius shows, Classic Howard Stern shows from all the years at E! and even our very own original productions. Secondly, the shows we put on Howard TV are different because the network restrictions are gone. The shows are uncensored and the lengths of the show can be whatever we want them to be...that means no longer editing out good material that didn't fit in. We can also program directly to what the fans want. If they want a whole category of sybian rides then we can do that.

6. Will there be any more Howard Stern movies (the first one was awesome!)?

Private Parts was great but I haven't heard about any movies in the horizon...but with Howard Stern you never know what will happen.

7. Will Howard's older shows (especially his great 1990 syndicated show) ever be available on DVD (are there any plans to release them)?

If you're talking about Howard's old WWOR TV show, then I haven't heard about any plans to release them on D VD.

8. What advice would you give to any Stern fans who want to be on his show or who want to be DJ's like Howard?

If you want to get on the show you need to have an interesting story to tell or be a hot chick that wants to get naked & ride the sybian.

9. Has the show found it easier or more difficult to book guests on Howard's show since he moved to Sirius?

I think it's the same. We really don't aggressively book guests like most shows. Most of the time we wait for them to come to us. Howard doesn't need guests to put on a good show. He would rather talk about the interesting things that happen in his life anyway.

10. Was it difficult to find the "best" clips for the preview? How long did it take you?

Yes, it was difficult putting this special together. The Howard TV One Cent Preview, which is available this weekend November 3rd -5th, is a compilation of all the greatest moments from the first year of Howard TV on Demand. In that past year we've produced over 500 episodes, so we had a lot of shows to go through in order to compile our top moments. It took our team about a month to put the special together.
