I've noticed besides not only is the show insanely unfunny anymore but didn't it seem they were trying to fit in as many blaeks as they could nearing the end of the year. They had DJ. Whoo Kid with some battle rapper in for the Lieberman vs. Sal rap battle in nearing the end of the year and I remember thinking, I don't believe I've heard any blaeks on the show at all this year, other than that horrible Macey Grey interview. Then in the same week I believe they had Tiki Barber,The Game,and Nick Cannon and it seemed like it was Shade45 or maybe a quota they had to meet on a yearly basis. I'm sure I'm probably looking into it a little too much,but with that being said I also realized another point,Does this guy not have any friends anymore? I remember back when his "friends" used to call up all the time,people like Leslie West, Rob Zombie,his friend from high school,and others I just can't think of at the moment. I'm sure if you asked Howard he would say, "i just don't want it to slow the show down",well listen jerkoff,your slow is about to a fuckin crawl right now it's so goddamn slow. It's pretty sad when the highlight of the year was when a caller named Dan from Chicago got through by bamboozling him and lit just a tiny spark under his ass.
