Hey Howard! How does it feel to only pickup for ass-kissing callers these days?

    Well, seeing how they are probably on his payroll, then I'm certain he's pretty happy about it.

    The only calls he takes are the wackpackers. And they call a different number.

    I don't like the callers these days. I have no problem with people being positive, but it gets to the point where everything just seems fake. It's so obvious that the calls are filtered significantly more than before. I remember when callers would bust balls all the time and give real opinions. The days when a guest on the show would be afraid to take calls because stern fans are so wild and unpredictable.

    Once in a while a real caller slips through and Howard either cuts them off or pretends to not hear them.

    the positive callers sound fake and the real callers sound genuinely pissed about something

    that about sums it up

    It's all apart of Howard "evolving"...Wednesday's show was loaded with ass kissing calls sprinkled with overly enthusiastic AGT fans calling. He's become everything that he used to mock.

    Taking real unscreened callers again would be the easist, cheapest, most convenient way to improve the show. These callers don't have to be antagonistic, just interesting and/ or funny giving Howard some more topics to riff about

    Yet Howard refuses to do so.

    He can't even engage dissenting opinions any more, resorting to pretending to not/hear the comment or lose (dump) the callers.

    Hell, he's afraid to let Pat Cooper back on (and pressured JAckie to do the same), and had to argue with a tape of Andy Dick
