    They did this confusing, contrived bit with Medicated Pete. I guess he'd used Howard's name to get in somewhere. Gary caught wind of it and they decided to prank him.

    They told him to make it ok, he'd have to go on the air and say he got AIDS from a monkey.

    It made absolutely no sense, and was as unfunny as can be.

    How the fuck does Howard ALLOW this shit to get though? Where is the COMEDY of this bit? Jesus fucking Christ.

    There have been some really bad bits over the year, but I think this might have been the worst bit I've ever heard in history of the show. It went on so long and Howard stuck with it even though it was bombing. You can tell Howard came up with the AIDS idea, it wasn't funny and he wouldn't let it go.

    Didn't Gary's brother die of AIDS and isn't he involved in raising money for an AIDS charity? You think he would refuse being involved with the stupid bit.

    That sounds random. The punishment should of been that to admit he had sex with High Pitch. High Pitch would go along with it.

    I can't believe they strayed away from the "Robin sings" bits for that long.

    Yeah, Gary's involvement with Life Beat was part of the horrendous set up.

    That bit was a pretty good indication the level of the show at this point.

    People need to accept the fact that this is the show now, take or leave it. The thing is, even with the show 1/4 good as it used to be, I must admit it's still better than most other shows out there.

    Guaranteed, there will be at least one email from a listener saying how great the Medicated Pete Aids Monkey bit was.

    As Howie has said about other shows, "They've run out of material".

    It's an interview show now.

    Unless people criticize how bad the interviews are...

    ... Then it's a comedy show...

    Unless people criticize how bad the comedy is...

    I had to make a two hour drive yesterday so I caught more of the show than usual. Sadly this atrocious bit was on, and I was seriously going to change the channel and just listen to some music, but I stuck with it just to see how bad it could get.
    It was beyond pathetic, without even the slightest nuance of humor whatsoever. I can't for the life of me fathom how they can think this kind of shit is funny. Absolutely fucking ponderous. And to think Sirius felt they had to keep this wretched tripe on the air for another five years...
