Stern cleared in 70% of U.S.

New show angling for 'SNL' auds

Radio with pictures? Shock jock Howard Stern will deliver that and more with a Saturday latenight TV vehicle set to bow this month with the mixed-media title of “The Howard Stern Radio Show.”

The hourlong show will feature highlights, and no doubt lowlights, from Stern’s nationally syndicated radio show, as well as original comedy bits featuring his extended radio family — Robin Quivers, Fred Norris, Jackie (the Joke Man) Martling and Gary (Baba Booey) Dell’Abate, among others.

Jim Biederman, a veteran of Lorne Michaels’ Broadway Video production company, has been tapped as exec producer. Originally developed for the CBS O&Os as counterprogramming to NBC’s “Saturday Night Live,” the Eyemark-distributed syndie skein is now set to debut Aug. 22 on stations covering about 70% of U.S. TV households.

The E! cabler will continue to carry its nightly telecast of Stern’s weekday radio antics, so there’s sure to be an effort by Biederman to differentiate the weekly TV show with exclusive elements. Biederman’s LC Inc. production outfit is handling day-to-day production on the Gotham-based show.
