FHM Magazine shutting down...

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/eat-th...h_e_36217.html

FHM announced today that it would be shutting down, with the March issue to be its last. According to Radar's Jeff Bercovici, the American offshoot of the #1 British lad mag never caught up to Maxim and was somewhat stymied by Maxim owner Felix Dennis' launch of Stuff, which gobbled up available market share prior to FHM's launch. The mag has a circulation of 1.25-million (perspective: That's more than Vanity Fair, The New Yorker, Teen Vogue, Forbes, GQ or Esquire, according to the last Audit Bureau of Circulations tally in June 2006), but apparently it wasn't enough to keep owner Emap in the game; Emap's satement said they'd be "focusing resources on faster growth platforms." FHM staffers learned the news this morning, according to Gawker, which reported that the mag would cease production prior to the holidays.

Not to get off topic. But can anyone explain the difference between Maxim and Stuff magazine? They seem identical. Actually FHM is just about the same as Maxim and Stuff too.

I actually was starting to like FHM better than Maxim. They had Jenny McCarthy doing a monthly piece & often when I saw a cute bikini underwear outfit it was something I could actually buy instead of being designer.

Well Stuff is written on a third grade level with third grade humor. Maxim is written on an eighth grade level with eighth grade humor.

I was starting to enjoy FHM as well with the new layout and celeb columns.

I wish!!

It's too bad. I like FHM the best out of the three. Stuff is pretty crappy, sometimes I wonder why I even have a free subscription to it.

When I first saw FHM my friend told me it stood for For Horny Men and i believed him. I've called it that ever since.

I second that. I used to have a subscription when I lived in the UK and still get the odd issue when my brother visits and the issues they have are twice as thick with more, lets say, "skin" exposed.

If FHM is shutting down with "only" 1.25-million subscribers, I wonder what Maxim and Stuff each have.

The article at Mediaweek I read about FHM closing indicated that Maxim has about double the circulation of FHM. It didn't mention Stuff.
