The King of All Media, Howard Stern, squares off in a tennis match against his monkey-faced producer, Gary Dell'Abate, in the Main Event of this raunchy variety show romp in front of a sold out Nassau Coliseum.
Two friends Dennis and Joe join the military together. While on a routine mission, the two are quickly surrounded by enemy fire. When Joe stands up in the line of fire to run, Dennis pushes... See full summary »
Queen's video for "I Want to Break Free", which is considered a camp classic in the UK but effectively ended their career in the United States, where it received a negative reaction and was boycotted by MTV.
WWOR show- aired in L.A. market in 90s. Low-brow stuff, guys
Howard Stern Show- one could give it zero stars, or ten stars, it is way out of the sphere of actual ratings. The show reminds me of what a bunch of very spoiled rich teenagers with a VHS camcorder would come up with in a basement when Mom's not home- but is entertaining, if not funny, and at times so bad, one laughs quietly, hoping no one else is seeing what you're watching. 1990s me loved the show, and looking back at recordings of it today in 2017, the love for it endures, even in later maturity and sagacity that only decades of life experience and learning can take one, yes as I said it still endures. It is too ludicrous to take seriously enough to be offended, and way back in the olden days of the '90s I distinctly remember there being a network warning that it is recommended for mature audiences, and that the content may offend certain viewers, etc etc. There are probably laws today under some UN charter, that would not allow this to be aired on any planet in our universe under threat of imprisonment for a thousand years.
This review is out of respect and admiration for the ultimate good sport (great sport, really) Adam West, who passed this year (June 10, 2017) from leukemia. West was wonderful on Stern's show. Stern had him on more than once, one episode is "Fartman Super Hero School" where Adam West was the instructor. One of the students/super heroes, is "Old Man" West (addressing student/hero 'Oldman'): "er, ah, what is YOUR super power, sir?" "ah,I can get into movies at half price". There was "Captain Korea" (as opposed to 'Captain America') wearing "chinky-eye" glasses, sporting a terrible ethnic Asian dialect. West tells him he can get a job at a deli.
There are claims this program was ONLY aired in NYC area, but I know it was aired in Los Angeles market during it's reign: (source: Wikipedia) "In Los Angeles on KCOP, the show managed to attract a 34.4% market share at 12:30 am in the males aged 18 to 49 demographic"
I hope, some day, it will pop up on some DVD set or rare VHS collection available for consumer purchase. I envy those who claim to own their home-recorded VHS tapes from when it first aired. I'd love to have a set myself!
