    Howzie bit the guy's head off who called in asking about the return of "Back Office Radio". "Stop asking about this! It'll be back in the distant future! Everyone's too busy to do it now!" I think it was a bit to "real" for Howie...

    The guys are too busy in the production studio recording bits for things that will never happen.

    Prime example from today: World's most beautiful Nazi pageant.


    Howie knows what his audience wants to hear, right?

    The Brandano fakefight was truly sad and showed the extent to which the show had been neutered, I'd hoped for a miracle like maybe Jason would come on and - instead of trying to talk about one of Tim's blacklisted topics, turned it on its head and said "here are all the things we can't talk about". Ofcourse even that wouldn't have been allowed since it would've still made Tim look like ten yards of dipshit.

    If I had to guess I'd estimate the conversation in Howard's head went something like "fuck Sirius and I'll only do bare minimum that the contract requires, if they wont pay for all this 'extra value and content' i'm bringing to the channels then I'm taking my toys and going home."

    Telling Howard you like something like BOR or a 3rd voice in his studio will ensure that it will never happen.

    No regular ratings book = less than 0.0 effect and marble investment into his revolution.


    The funniest thing the wigged liar said today was how other hosts never give their people credit......and he (Wiggy) does!

    I took great joy today knowing how pissed Howard was when Jenny McCarthy called off the dating game segment cuz she met someone.

    "Im really bummed out. WE spent a lot of time putting this together. It would have been really good."


    Just be honest Howard. Youve had nothing to do with this dating game since the second it was brought up in the "writer's meeting."

    It has been a while since I watch Leno or letterman but don't the credits at the end indicate the writers names? If so that pretty much crushes his theory that those writers don't get credit.

    In his defense, he's was only talking about Beth.

    WTF are they all so busy with? The dating game? Wow, how original. How much work can it take to put out another lame recycled bit? The results of all these supposed meetings are pathetic, the show and channels are getting worse instead of better. Howard and his staff are completely clueless and their lack of talent becomes more apparent every day.

    I could understand the rationale if there was a sudden increase in great show content but it's as bad as ever. The same old recycled guests and dumb bits. Bring it back.

    I'm sure Howard has the staff producing Beff-O's next big ratings bonanza on Malone's dime.

    Plus, Wiggy has Doug Goodstein and other staffers working on the video of his parents he admits isn't going to be used on the air. Funny the guys have time for crap like that but they're too busy to create programming for H101 or content for his shitty show.

    Tracey Mellman was just on JAM ON channel saying this is her last day or did she say her last day is the end of January. Anyway that's interesting the HR lady is leaving.
    She mentioned she liked being on BOR
