With The Howard Stern Show three years away from the end of the latest SiriusXM five year contract for the show ending, what will the future hold for The Howard Stern Show ????
Rumor has it that the one and only Jimmy Kimmel might step in for the retiring Howard Stern and take over the show , after his contract ends on Jimmy Kimmel Live on ABC.
Jimmy Kimmel might be the only one that could possibly replace The King Of All Media , as Kimmel is a huge superfan of the show and gets “It” I think the respect that Jimmy has for Howard and for the show , it might be a smooth transition. We have had more Jimmy Kimmel in the studio as of late, and we might just get more as time goes by , and the transition slowly starts to take place.
Nothing is written in stone, and we still have a long way to go with this, but if I could see anyone step up to the plate it would be Jimmy Kimmel to replace Howard Stern on SiriusXM. Time will tell …..

Once Sacha entered the studio, Howard introduced the British comedian’s newest action comedy “The Brothers Grimsby,” which is about two English brothers separated at very young age. One brother grows up to become the world’s best secret agent (Mark Strong) while the other becomes a soccer hooligan (Sacha Baron Cohen).
Howard wanted to know more about what it meant to be a hooligan, so Sacha explained that to get into his role he had to visit a few soccer clubs, which is another name for a pub and not the safest place to be hanging around.
Sacha hired a bodyguard to go with him to visit one of the most dangerous groups, the Special Crew. The guard told him, “Listen, I’m going to blend in. If anyone knows you have a bodyguard, you’re in trouble,” the guard told Sacha.
“Then all of the sudden my bodyguard has a beer in his hand and then another one,” Sacha told Howard. Within a half hour of entering the pub, Sacha’s trusty protection was passed out on the floor. The guard was a local guy and apparently got a little too into character while going “undercover.”
Curious about the lifestyle, Sacha asked one Special Crew member for a funny story and this is what he was told: “There’s one time I was in Manchester and we kidnapped this man and we put barbed wire on places we shouldn’t have,” the hooligan told Sasha.
Sacha replied, “Uh, have you got any even funnier stories?”
Howard was amazed at the length at which Sacha will go to get into his characters but that was only the tip of the iceberg in this rowdy English bar.
Howard wanted to know what drove Sacha to create such wild and over-the-top movies like “Borat” and “Bruno.”
“The reality is this, personally I get very bored seeing almost every movie. I find it hard to sit there, I find it hard to get to the end,” Sacha told him. “I try to make these films engaging.”
Howard pointed out in Sacha’s new flick there are about five or six moments that are really over the top. Howard asked Sacha if he dreads showing the movie to Sony executives once it’s finished to which Sacha replied, “Yes, but the studio actually loved the movie when they screened it.”
The real test for Sacha is getting the movie by the MPAA (The Motion Picture Association of America) since they’re the ones who designate the official movie rating.
Sacha recounted how he convinced the MPAA to give Bruno an “R” rating when by his own admission it should’ve been “NC-17” due to a 45-second continuous shot of a penis.
“I know that I have a game with the MPAA,” he said, revealing that there is a method to his perceived madness.
In his latest flick there’s an insane bit where the two brothers need to “hide inside of an elephants vagina” and Sacha knew heading into his meeting with the MPAA that he wanted the scene to be about three minutes long. To get his wish he delivered a cut with a nine-minute version of this scene so that when he cut out six minutes it would seem like the MPAA got a small victory.
Howard was impressed how realistic the film elephant’s penis looked in the movie.
Sacha informed Howard that he “hired Ridley Scott’s Oscar-winning prosthetics team.”
Cohen had the same special effects masters from movies like “Star Wars” and “The Bourne Identity” to replicate the pachyderm’s phallic member. “There were months of preparations that went into an animatronic cock,” he told Howard.
Another memorable scene in the movie involved a large amount of elephant cum and this morning Sacha revealed the true secret to making realistic animal semen: McDonald’s special sauce.
“I’m going to tell you something about the elephant cum,” Sacha began. “They were looking at different types of fluids, different chemistry. The fluid that looks the most like elephant cum is McDonald’s sauce.” And he wasn’t joking.
The production ended up spending $14K just to remove the semen from the shoot location.
It’s not secret that Sacha loves to offend people so Howard wanted to know if that ever backfired in his real life.
Sacha told Howard a story how he ran into Olympic gold medalist and former boxing heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko at a restaurant a few years ago. Normally, that wouldn’t be a big deal but Mr. Klitschko is from Kazakhstan, the country Sacha’s Borat character claims as home.
A waiter approached Sacha at the restaurant and told him that Klitschko would love to meet him. Sacha walked over to his table and extended his hand, which Klitschko firmly gripped with no intention of letting go.
“I looked around to see if there was something I could stab him with if this got serious,” Sacha half-joked to Howard.
Soon Sacha’s wife and fellow actor Isla Fisher came over pretending to be a fan and asked for an autograph so Wladimir would release her husband’s hand, but that proved to not work as the former heavyweight pulled Sacha closer and quietly told him he was offended how his country was portrayed in his movie.
After a painful three minutes, Wladimir started to laugh and told Sacha he was joking and didn’t mind the film at all. In fact, he said he thought it was funny.
Another great appearance by the king of all media Howard Stern on Jimmy Kimmel’s last night in Brooklyn New York. Kimmel’s shows in Brooklyn were fun, and I hope they make this a annual event for the show!!!!!
