    I, and it seems I am in the minority, enjoyed Benjy being a dick today to Rob Courdrey (sp). At least it was SOMETHING a bit different. He's the ONLY person who ever openly questions the hypocrisy of The Wigged One. Is he annoying, whoa, fuck YES. But at least he seems to be ALIVE... the rest of them are either beat down (Richard), missing (news team), or douche laden synchophants (mostly everyone).

    Ahem... thoughts?

    Totally agree. Though I think Benjy's jokes that Howard read are pretty pitiful, but that's mostly because they don't fit Howard's delivery and voice.

    Love Sal also but Howard has a muzzle on him.

    I actually hope sal quits soon so he can bring his humor to other shows.

    Any man that tells another man "I would not hire you" when the man he is telling this to is not applying for a position with that man is smarmy and arrogant.

    With the confidentiality agreement they signed, I am sure they have a non-compete clause as well. Sal (or any of them) probably are barred from working In radio (possibly any media) at all for at least 1 year. Could be a reason we haven't seen too many defections.

    Was the exchange real or some bit to create drama leading up to Howard's fast approaching Vegas week break.

    I heard about 10 minutes of the show today, but his intial comeback to Courdrey was the most unfunny and pathetic comeback I ever heard. Courdrey talked about how Benjy is always late and Benjy's response was some convoluted comeback about how they only allow A list guests on the show now and why is Courdrey there. Courdrey actually had to try to save him by saying "But I am the #1 C-List celebrity in Hollywood".

    I didn't listen to the rest of the conversation, but that exchange alone tells me why the show is no longer funny.

    Benjy blows, but the show blows harder. So I guess you are correct.

    Your probably correct.

    Sal, Scott the engineer, Richard and a few others went out to dinner with Artie a few weeks back and were hanging out in his studio the entire time. Not only did they not appear on the air, but it wasn't even supposed to be known they were there.

    Bochetti fucked up and blurted something out about sal being there and Artie got (jokingly?) upset over the revleation, and only cryptically mentioned that he had some "old friends" hanging out with him tonight.

    occasionally Benjy has a good moment. i enjoyed the wrap up show where benjy criticizes howard as a dinner host, tells howard he shouldn't call in with a cell phone, and asks john to hang up on howard.

    overall though, i don't like the Andy Kaufman routine. i didn't really like the original quite frankly. the show was suppose to be the first reality show, it was at its best when we got a peek into the staffs lives with their wives, like Fred and princess Norris or Howard with Alison. By benjy hiding behind shtick, he never has to be real and never has to reveal anything of interest.

    Ha, Benjy to me epitomizes everything wrong and broken about the show since that wretched shitstain came to light. I'd pay a king's ransom to chop off Benjy and Fred's show budget fat and bring in an Adam Carolla type with the hopes to finish strong.

    Even Fred's dinoasaur rock and sound effect bullshit is lazy and stale

    benjy's not "good". he's always been cancerous. i think listening to wiggy and the colostomy bag cackler have lowered your standards so much, you've lost perspective.

    sal and richard are the only genuinely good dudes still on the show, and wiggy won't let them do anything because they'd show him up.
