    Or am I just venomous about the fact that they work 22 weeks a year x 3 days a week (sometimes).

    Also, the celebrity interviews might as well have turned into a marshmallow throwing/product placement fest.

    My new years resolution, to not even listen to the show at all. Even if @ARM gets through...

    It did get worse.
    Or maybe I just have a lower tolerance for this phony.

    It did. I don't hate the show, yet. But the interviews and weak attempts at humor are getting old. Im holding out hope that he's just bitter about the lawsuit so he's just serving his time at Sirius. Then when his contracts almost up, he'll put his horse down, start bashing Sirius and get motivated to do a podcast. But if he's really just this neutered faggot that loves kittens, I'll only be listening to old shows in 2016. Sad thing is, as bad as he's been, he's still the best thing on radio

    Not true. There are 60 cycle tones I'd rather listen to than his phony ass kissing.

    The show did get worse this year. The proof I feel is the past week. They do not have enough "best of" content for even one channel and they are playing the birthday bash on a continued loop for the past week it seems.
    I think Howard has checked out big time, and if Sirius does extend his contract, it only going to get worse. Why can't Howard just get other content on the channels? Hire Kidd Chris or even bring Abe cannon back. Abe wasn't great but at least it wasn't the same thing playing on a loop. No wonder Howard loves the movie Ground Hog Day, his show and channels have become that.

    It's become the radio version of the View. I don't like the View.

    Well if Howard is the best thing on radio then I'm fucked, cause I can't listen to his phony ass. The sound of his voice makes me sick, never mind what I believe to be the content of his current show sucks ass.

    If Calloused Shins says is true, then god help us. What can a person with a sense of humor listen to besides Howard, cause he just plain sucks.

    I know there have been other lists but it's the year end and time to sum up things for the new year. The last few Howard listeners might just find something else to listen to in 2015.

    The change from a comedy show to a 2-day a week interview show finally stopped me listening for the most part.

    (I disliked Howard's brief interview TV show as well)

    The rotting corpse is now a little more dry and a little less gooey, but it's still dead.

    It did get worse, if only for 'Gary the Conquerer' and 'Wendy the Slow Adult'

    But I must say, for me most comedy bits were terrible this year. So many painfully unfunny parodies. Not even sure if dead Casey Casem was amongst the worst, it's embarrassing
