On regular radio? If he went back to regular FM/AM radio, would he still be better than anything else on there? I haven't listened to regular radio in a very long time (got sirius in 2005) so i have no idea.
I get more laughs from one segment of Artie's fucked up show, than I did from weeks of wiggys output between 2009-11.
So I think it's fair to say that unless the show became fantastic after I stopped listening in March 2011, his show isnt even
the best thing on Howard 101.
There are many political oriented and sports shows that are heads and tails above the 2013 Howard Stern Show but I'm guessing you mean entertainment type shows and I go to podcasts to fill that need. Imus puts out a show on terrestrial, that may not get you laughing, but he does present an entertaining show of competing voices and current intelligent guests - the listener might learn something without being bombarded by someone with the taste of a 15 year old suburban girl.
Here in Tampa one of our local rock stations went to all talk. I'd say he couldn't even compete with the shows on that station in his current state.
But with ratings being on the line and his quickly dissolving marriage who knows? the old queen might get motivated and angry enough to actually put some effort into the show again. I can't imagine with his ego he'd be content to sit around and get shit stomped buy some of the younger guys.

I would rather listen to Tradio than THHS in it's current state, I gave up after the recent George Takai week and I haven't looked back. I just listen to the archives of Bubba The Love Sponge and Howard pre Sirius

I should be more specific. I meant morning time shows/talk. Like what he was competing against when he was on K-rock
I live in Milwaukee, so we never had a Howard affiliate in the area during his FM years. We had Mancow, and for the summers I'd work 5am-1pm at a golf course, I have to admit I enjoyed the show. This was 2000-2001.
if you want a good laugh, check out where Mancow is currently being carried. he used to be a pretty big deal in the Midwest.
In San Diego their is the DSC show "dave, shelly and Chainsaw" I like it, it's a lot better than what Howard puts out, I quit my subscription to sirius last month.
DSC (formerly the KGB Morning Zoo) and Jeff and Jer dominated English language radio here before Howard, during Howard and after Howard. Jeff and Jer have always sucked but their show was very family friendly so it got the moms driving kids to school and DSC got the rest. Even with his claims of being #1 in every city he entered Howard never beat those shows in even one ratings book. He usually came in 4th, 8th or 9th if AM and Latino stations were included.
I don't know who is #1 here any more but it seems the younger people tend to listen to more urban/dance music stations so those shows probably are up there. Under 30's don't seem to be much interested in the old style talk morning shows, they seem to be more interested in the Ryan Seacrest type shit that mixes pop culture with top 20 music.
