    It started off as a "commercial free revolution" now its nothing more than an infomercial where the sponsors call all the shots including what time the show starts.
    If he was as concerned about content as he is about taking a break or shoe horning live reads into the show, he might not be such a monumental joke to everyone.

    I think the worst thing and something Howard used to shit on when other DJs did it is these mid-bit or md-segment live reads where Howard would be talking about something and then just break into reading a commercial.

    Actually, I take that bad. The worst thing is when Howard tries to dupe his audience into believing he uses some of these shit products like the Squatty Potty. The idea of a 6'5" Howard or a morbidly obese Robin using a stool to squat over their toilet is laughable. When Howard used to lie about drinking Heineken or buying jewelry from Steven Singer, at least it was believable. Him using the Squatty Potty is ridiculous.

    Actually, I could see him using a Squatty Potty long before I could see him drink a beer, like a real man.

    nothing is more demonstrative of his teeny audience than the quality of his sponsors. its just a fact. argue all you want buttnuts if he had 20 million listeners or fuck lets say he had 5 he would have major sponsors

    Pretty sure 90% of his current sponsors would have never been able to afford a live read on terrestrial. Definitely says a lot about the reach of his show these days.

    Howard would love to do the show commercial free but Sirius won't let him, he is their biggest draw and they command a large price for ads on his show.

    Damn, Son, you kinda tripped yourself up there. I can guaran-fuckin-tee you that Squatty Potty doesn't have the budget for "large prices for ads"...

    $650,000+ in yearly sales before the Stermn ads. I'm sure that they have increased exponentially since the ad campaign started so the ads pay for themselves.

    My Successes
    The success of Squatty Potty has been tremendous. In just over a year the company has moved from a home based business, run out of the Edwards' garage, to a fully operational office and warehouse. The family was able to expand by hiring more full time employees and they look forward to creating more jobs in their community over the next year. From Q4 of 2011, when the business started, to the last quarter of 2012 Squatty Potty has seen daily sales grow by 4,000%. This is a very impressive growth for a first year business built from the ground up.

    Once again, the loser just posts random shit with no actual substantial proof of his claims.. You have zero numbers to show that their profits have increased because of wiggy. Hate to tell you, moron, but the Squatty Potty was featureed on the Dr. Oz show (among others)...I can guarantee you that Dr. Oz has a wider reaching audience than Wiggy McChinimplant does on his shitty Sirius show.

    For a pay service they sure have added so many commercials over the last year. its completely out of control. I think they actually add commercials on replays and on 101. I usually listen at night before I go to sleep and its more commercials then programming.
