And in case anyone thinks Stern might have softened since 2001, he said yesterday Moonves is “a shark.”
That won’t come as any surprise to viewers of David Letterman’s old CBS show, where Stern once where an “I Hate Les Moonves” t-shirt and mocked Letterman about his friendship with Moonves.
Stern’s hard feelings go back at least to 2001 but worsened when he was sued by CBS in 2006 for breach of contract stemming from Stern’s ship-jump to Sirius the year before.
On the show yesterday, Stern said Moonves “tried to ruin my life” and likened the CBS exec to Tony Soprano and “a cold barracuda.
“I know his true nature. He’s a shark,” Stern said on his Sirius radio show, adding that Moonves “had no humanity behind those shark eyes.”
Stern, who went through a bitter legal wrangle with former employer CBS Radio, was gleeful over the investigation into Moonves for alleged sexual misconduct, which was launched following an expose in The New Yorker. Stern replayed a segment from a show in 2001 in which he predicted that Moonves would get his comeuppance.
“Les is such a snake. He’s a snake in the grass….I hate him. I always have,” Stern said in the old clip. “He’s just a friggin’ snake in the grass….Big president of CBS, he’ll fall.”
In his usual profanity-laced style,
In a note on Facebook, Gethard said that he and the show’s network, truTV, came to a “mutual decision” to end the program. The Chris Gethard Show was the lowest rated program on truTV – “Something that I take no small amount of pride in,” Gethard cracked – but the comedian added that he’d been having his own misgivings about continuing the show.
“I write this with a strange mix of emotions: sadness, worry,
Stern, who has made it known he isn't a fan of Moonves for nearly two decades, brought up the recent allegations against the executive, who was accused of sexual misconduct by six women in a recent New Yorker exposé.
"Les tried to ruin my life," Stern said, delving into his own history with Moonves, whom he called "Tony Soprano."
Twelve years ago, CBS filed a $500 million lawsuit against Stern, claiming he had breached ...
The Alex Gansa-Howard Gordon political thriller has won eight Emmys during its run including best drama in 2012, plus two best actress trophies for star Claire Danes.
In April, Danes told Howard Stern on his Sirius Xm show that Homeland would end with Season 8, but this is the first official network confirmation of the decision. Homeland was renewed for Season 7 and Season 8 ahead of its sixth season.
“Alex Gansa will be bringing his show to its proper conclusion,” said Nevins this afternoon. “I can’t say how much it has meant to the acceleration of our brand and for me personally: It was the first series I greenlit.”
“Alex and Claire talked about this (with us) last season,” said Nevins, “Alex brought
“[Exec producer] Alex Gansa will be bringing this show, which has won eight Emmys and five Golden Globes, to its proper conclusion,” Nevins told reporters. “I cannot say enough about how much Homeland has meant for the acceleration of our brand, not to mention to me personally. It was, in fact, the first show that I greenlit when I came to Showtime.”
Nevins went on to say that the decision was made
Showtime president and CEO David Nevins made the announcement at the TCA summer press tour on Monday, noting that “Alex [Gansa] and Claire [Danes] both started talking about it last season.” Showtime programming president Gary Levine also noted that the show “is not limping into the sunset. Last season was one of its best ever.” Season 8 will premiere in June 2019. Showtime had previously renewed the show for Seasons 7 and 8 back in 2016.
The news was not unexpected, as series star Claire Danes previously told Howard Stern that the eighth season would be the last.
“Now we’ve got one more season after this and then we’re wrapping it up,” Stern told Danes in the interview, to which Danes responded, “Yeah.” When Stern asked, “How do we feel about this?” Danes replied, “Really conflicted.” She added, “I’ll be ready for a reprieve from that,” noting that her character,

During a recent episode of the Shoot This Now podcast, it was brought up that both Matthew McConaughey and Gwyneth Paltrow were not only in the running, but were amongst the top choices for the 1997 box office smash.
