    So many of your fans want to know if you’ll ever return to the Howard Stern show.

    The Howard thing is over. That was done amicably on both of our parts. I love Howard -- he’s amazing. I had a chance to be on the greatest show of all time for eight and a half years. That ship has sailed. And I’m doing my thing. I’m in the third year of this TV and radio show. I love it and am very proud of it. DirectTV is treating me well. So we’ll see how it goes. My next stand-up special will be out next year and my book is on the best sellers list. If I get another deal, I’ll take it. I just like to keep moving, keep busy. And standup is continuous. So I will be busy. I have a couple of mortgages. I’m not going anywhere until someone tells me not too.

    Well, at least it's in print now. Hopefully the next step is to finally admit to the world that Wiggy was a complete cocksucker to him since the "firing/leaving".

    That should be the next book.

    I hope Artie's success surpasses Howard's. (I know, not likely, but it would be funny to see Howard go nuts over that).

    No, but some of you have definitely dipped a toe in the "God, we're being a bunch of cunts" pool.

    Artie has been saying how much he'd love to "return" to the show at the very least in an interview, and this is the first concrete statement he's made where it clearly isn't a possibility, nor will it ever happen. Which is more than Wiggy ever did.

    What bothers me more is him pretty much saying that as long as Directv dangles money in front of him, we're stuck with a PC Artie Lange-lite every night on The Artie Lange Show. Unless he has "evolved" too and this is the new Artie. He sure did learn from the best, on a smaller scale of course. Snag a trophy wife(to be), sign a lucrative contract, bow down to political correctness, and ride the gravy train until they won't have you anymore.

    I'll never begrudge a comic his right to earn a living--and I think the format of the show is too restrictive, but he's decided to take the cheques and run with 'em. At least there's still the sporadic guest that livens things up. The most recent Atell appearance was great.

    If Artie and Howard are done why the fuck does Artie mention Howard every 5 fucking seconds?

    Not sure what you just read but Artie never says "he won't return even for an interview"
    Nor do I ever recall him saying that he'd love to return to the show.
    And he's never had anything but good things to say about howard. And Howard about him.
    Y'all love inventing drama

    If you read the book you'd realize how idiotic of a question this is. Addicts have no wagon.

    I still can't believe that after all this time Artie still says shit like "I love Howard -- he's amazing."

    It makes me want to punch his fat face in.

    For it to still be going on he has to be collecting commission from Buchwald.

    The next book will be the "tell all book" about Howard.
    But then Artie will have no carrier. You can't cross the tribe.

    Definitely not gonna happen. The difference is, Howard at least was funny at one point, albeit long ago.
