    If Howard leaves Sirius, do you think he would find someone to give him a terrestrial gig? Do you think there would be an audience when he tries his "well Sirius sucks, but this place understands me, etcetc" bit?

    Personally, I don't think he has another option.

    No radio station is gonna pay him to work 120 days a year or less and only 3 days a week.

    He's done if Sirius fires him. He doesn't have the energy to go through another series of bullshit.

    He'll probably just chill and let Beff be the bread winner for a while with her happening careers in modelling and tv.:rolleye:

    Of course he could land a gig in terrestrial , but not for the type of money that he would demand.

    More importantly, Howard would not want to be under ratings related scrutiny. If he were give truth syrum he would admit to being humiliated over the 20% ratings nosedive that AGT took, and the beatings he took from the press "Summers biggest loser".

    This wasn't the type of negative press he used to get (and thrive on) from angry critics who hated him and thought he was crude/dirty/sexist/ racist,, you name it. The type of critic whom you laughed at knowing they didn't get the show and were clueless.

    No, this was absolute mockery. That had to hurt.

    This would be his biggest problem with going back to terrestrial radio.

    I suppose podcasts are always an option, but there's no way advertisers would pay Howie in the manner he is accustomed to for doing maybe three podcasts a week. Also, he'd have to work too hard with a podcast. Adam Carolla does his podcast five days a week, plus two other podcasts once a week, and a stand up comedy tour.

    Howie simply doesn't have that kind of work ethic, even though he claims to be the hardest working man in show business. :rolleye:

    He stuck a fork in himself and says at one point, almost every day that he needs to get off of the radio. Since he works so little, it means he REALLY wants out. He'll never admit that he has only a few asskissing "fans" out there, but he's way too busy for this now.
    He has visits to a shrink every day, and has to catch the early bird special for dinner with the trophy wife. So much to do. Yawn. :rolleyes:

    Poor Howie has wanted a TV gig of his own forever, but he's had poor advertiser support and now AGT has revealed he is not a national ratings draw.

    Next stop, oblivion. Permanent vacation with the vapid twat and her menagerie of pretend children.

    I think he'd get a ton of great offers to come back to terrestrial radio. I have no doubt that he'd making a killing up front. But man, the ratings would be hilarious.

    He knows it. He knows that he could never capture a sliver of a fraction of his old terrestrial audience. And he knows the numbers would be right there for the world to see. That's why he'll never do it.

    It's not going to be terrestrial radio whatever it is. He dealt with that once and he's not going to go through it all over again now that he's old.

    I can see him getting into podcasting when he leaves Sirius. It would give him the freedom to do the show whenever he wants and he wouldn't even have to go anywhere to do it. He's got too much of an inflated sense of worth to go the rest of his days not speaking to an audience. Something will happen on tv, in a movie, or in the world that Howie will want to yell about and not being able to do that will drive him crazy.

    Plus Howie just can't be unemployed. He needs to work. Sitting home and "staring at the wall" all day is going to drive him berserk. Especially when Beth starts bringing in more cats.

    i obviously wanted to dump the radio career for a tv gig, but no one is going to want to hire him now. America still hates him, and now most of radio listeners do too.

    He kinda has to do another season of AGT, but there is no way they are going to give him a raise. He is about to 'jokeman' himself out of a job.

    You think Howard can give up his public mouthpiece?
