This week's podcast: Stern & the Super Bowl

After some meaningless banter about a Kardashian, CHML's Scott Thompson starts in about those Super Bowl ads. We talk about Matthew Broderick's Ferris Bueller 26-years-later spot, and I suggest this is the way to do all sequels from now on. Just boil the whole idea down to two-and-a-half minutes. Eliminates 90 minutes of really bad exposition to try and justify a sequel. The next Mission Impossible or Fast & Furious film could just be a trailer I say save a lot of time and money. Fits with the kids attention spans.
We get around to talking about Howard Stern's appearance Wednesday as Letterman's guest on the 30th anniversary of his debut in late night. I thought the show was a bust, with neither Letterman or Stern distinguishing themselves by once again goofing on Leno. There were no vintage clips on the show, which apparently is how Letterman wanted it. Too bad, I wish for once he would just turn it all over to somebody else to put together highlights from the past 30 years.
Stern, too, seems to be losing his pulling power. Leno beat Letterman last Wednesday night in the U.S. overnights.
