    A puppet reading Sal's apology would be good

    See now if this wasn’t such a pussy PC society these days having a puppet that makes racial crank calls and then has to read the apology every time he’s on the show would be hysterical. Maybe just the full apology the first time and then a shortened one every time there after.

    Have the apology clip in the background as the credits roll at the end of every episode

    Kimmel is the king of P. C. now. So if he's involved, it will be absolutely devoid of humor.

    Yup..he’s a weepy PC queer now. I don’t see this being edgy or funny again if he has any input on the content.

    If Florentine isn’t involved they can just forget it. His Terrorizing Telemarketers CD were so funny. He’s prefect at prank calls.

    My favorite was the horny priest trying to signup for a dating service.

    Poor David Alan Grier, he shouldn't have called Carolla an idiot troll.

    I don't care about Crank Yankers but I love that Adam Carolla is still producing things with Jimmy Kimmel. I'm a fan of Carolla and I think he has Howard's dream life. A popular radio show (podcast anyway) that makes him lots of money, that he has total control over, Hollywood friends, celebrity parties, family, life long regular friends, hobbies, producing tv shows that actually get aired etc etc. Carolla doesn't have Howard's money but, IMHO, Carolla is the richer of the two.

    Speaking of producing tv shows, I was watching a HowardTV episode from 2012 where Sour Shoes came in and was the house band. It was cringingly bad. They had Sour Shoes tell a sex story and had Lisa G massage his shoulders. Sour Shoes kept doing a baby voice. Cringe. Lisa G looked old-ish, frail and the entire thing was sad. The video, lighting looked cheap. Howard must have just gotten his new teeth and he looked buffoonish. And this must have been the beginning of the "lets pretend Howard is still the KOAM because it must have hit home that his star was fading" era, because, as filler, they were showing the commercial break pitch meeting Howard, Boey, Jason etc. They were trying hard, but failing, to make it look like Howard still was involved in the show and was the creative spark. It blew. No wonder HowardTV failed.

    I remember that. Sour pretended to jizz himself because Lisa Glasberg touched his shoulder

    Howard TV was great the first couple years when there were strippers riding the sybian and wack packers every other day. Henry Hill’s first Sirius appearance was epic

    I agree that HowardTV was great the first couple of years but DESPITE the sybian rides. Like the HSS, it was still riding on the momentum of the KROCK show.

    There was a novelty to it the first couple years because it was uncensored unlike the E! Show
