    So he hasn't wanted to since Artie left? Because he hasn't said anything funny that I've heard.

    If he was funny people wouldn't complain about how bad the show is. He thinks he's funny, and he tries, like when he does his parents imitation, but he doesn't say anything funny to back up the imitation.

    I think your on to something. When Artie left 0 effort has been put into the show. that being said, i do still laugh on occasion.

    Maybe I don't find what he says funny because I detest the person he's become, but I can recognize funny and he aint it.

    Even Gary made excuses for Howard not being funny by saying the show has evolved.

    EXACTLY!!! The show is just an angry old man talking to self-obsessed idiot. The funny train left with Artie. Howard can bring it back at any time, but he doesn't give a shit.

    He is a damn good ring leader but without talented acts under his tent he is abysmal.

    Entertaining, yes. Or at least he used to be. Funny, no. Not generally.

    Since Artie left it's been obvious that Howard and Robin aren't funny, intelligent, or interesting enough to carry the show alone. They desperately need a third voice to decrease the amount of time those two spend talking and provide some humor.

    this is a great site, but u were able to voice that opinion on sfn too.

    i think Howard is now unintentionally funny. if you aren't laughing at the show, i don't know how you would still be able to listen

    The glaring omission from the show is the third voice. Of course, when they redesigned the studio, they removed the Artie spot. They left a spot for celebrity guests, but Artie's chair is physically gone.

    To a point. If you say too many honest things about Howard and how his show has gone downhill you will be deaded as a a "hater".

    like someone else said, he can be if he wants to, but he don't care anymore. even Gary said on TWUS that it's no longer a comedy show

    Why would he not want to be funny? Even Howard recently said his show was a comedy show.

    Howard is just not a naturally funny person. He was funniest when Jackie was writing lines for him to say.

    If you are a funny person and are talking for 4 hours you can't be as unfunny as Howard is. A funny person would be funny even if they didn't want to.
