    Do we count Sal and Richard as writers or they more like contributors?

    How about Kaplan? Will? Booey? Fred anymore?

    bzzzzzz

    Tim Sabean, this problem was created by man; so it can be solved by man. Cookies are my weakness. Green drink. Tim Sabean can fix this.

    I'm not sure what anyone would be writing since all the show is now is Robin and Howard bullshitting for hours.

    Howard finally mentioned Colbert last week in regards to his Super Pac.....

    I wonder if he actually watched some Colbert?

    Colbert has a top notch program and has people working around the clock, I'm sure to keep things funny, fresh and exciting. Boring Howie has a simple template for each show. He uses the first hour to make fun of his staff and to take a few calls, second hour is playing clips and checking in with Eric the Midget (as of late), third hour is a "celebrity" interview and the last hour is news jam packed with live reads and even more commercials...sprinkle in the 3 jews (Lisa G, Leiberman, and Jon Hein) there's your show (as if you didn't know)....what does he need writers for?

    4 day work week and plenty of vacations for Colbert, he needs to fire most of those writers as well. How many writers did Howie have in his prime, 3-5?

    Mostly they set up fake Tradio bits to see if they can drive that concept to the center of the Earth by beating it into the ground ad nauseum.

    How can you tell when Howard makes a Benjy joke? Benjy is quiet all show. Fred and Jackie usually laugh extra loud to show it's their joke.

    Love Colbert, hate Stern. Colbert makes fun of hypocrisy, Stern is a hypocrite.

    I don't watch Colbert but I would guess he may have less $ to work with than the money Sirius is paying to One Twelve Inc. Howard is too cheap to spend any money to hire anyone with talent - if he just parted with a few of the millions he's keeping for himself, the show could be a lot better.
