After just missing the "honor" in 2007 Howard Stern is back on the Lycos most popular search, coming in at #8 on the top searched men list.  The top 10 men of 2008:

  1. Clay Aiken
  2. Barack Obama
  3. Heath Ledger
  4. Paul Newman
  5. John McCain
  6. Tupac Shakur
  7. Johnny Depp
  8. Howard Stern
  9. Travis Barker
  10. 50 Cent

What I found most entertaining was the fact that whoever wrote the press release could not resist throwing in the following jab

...reappearing in 2008 after falling off the list in 2007 is Howard Stern, who, despite seeing a continued decline in his Sirius Satellite ratings, managed to keep himself in the headlines, marrying long-time girlfriend Beth Ostrosky.

of course Howard couldn't have just made the list because his talent and growing ratings, instead they suggest that he made the list because of his marriage to Beth. Which only leaves one question... who the hell still searches the net with Lycos?
