Having always wanted to be a disc-jockey, Howard Stern works his way painfully from radio at his 1970's college to a Detroit station. It is with a move to Washington that he hits on an outrageous off-the-wall style that catches audience attention. Despite his on-air blue talk, at home he is a loving husband. He needs all the support he can get when he joins NBC in New York and comes up against a very different vision of radio. Written by

When Howard and Robin walk out of NBC headquarters in New York after she was fired, you can see the current NBC peacock logo in the entry way to NBC's headquarters in the background. The scene takes place in 1981-82, when NBC's "Proud N" logo would have been in use. The current peacock was introduced in the spring of 1986. See more »
My answer is "cock", and I wrote it really big, so I have a "big cock!"
I'm afraid you can't say "big cock" on the air. That's a no-no.
But I just said "pussy".
Yeah, she just said *pussy*!
Well, pussy's okay. It's the way you say it. "Big cock" coming out of your mouth is, just not good.
Wait a minute. I can't say "big cock", but you can say "big cock coming out of your mouth?"

The ratings that I see on Private Parts really do the movie an injustice. As of now I see the ratings are at 6.5, but I have to tell you that I'd give it a 9.
Stern is not GLORIFYING himself here. He's just telling a story as to how he got to where he is and in many cases criticizes himself. The movie is by no means egotistical which is what I TOTALLY expected to find. Instead it leads you through a tale of Poverty to Success.
Great Job Howard. I may not like you much, but you really pulled this one off.
