    If he's 45, than the list is bogus. No way he's that high.

    "I---I---I really should be number one Robin. After all, I am America's Judge and I did invent radio. Plus I'm always discovering new talent. Nobody ever heard of Kid Rock before he did my show. Same thing for that great comedian Tom Cotter! I INVENTED EVERYTHING ROBIN! WHY CAN"T THE WORLD SEE THAT! They're all just jealous of me and my success."

    What does "powerful" mean exactly? Is it based on what they earn or what projects they can get green lit in the industry. If it's the latter, no way Howard rates that high. He couldn't even get the lame Porky's remake off the ground. The best he can do is use his influence to get his wonky wife a few hosting gigs on stupid cable pet shows that nobody watches.

    Getting beat by Rush Limbaugh must be killing him.

    From the article

    'Unlike most FORBES lists, which are based on earnings or net worth, our annual Celebrity 100 takes a stab at measuring that most ephemeral of riches: fame.'

    According to the article there are several factors. Roughly they are,...

    1) celebrity earnings
    2)
    social networking strength
    3)
    a marketability score (0-100)


    I guess Howard just doesn't measure up. :hhh:

    Exactly. He is 45 based on his income. He is ranked 93 on marketability

    Based on those two factors, his score ought to be 69. :grad:

    Are they saying his "social networking strength" is 1?

    C'mon, I bet 85% of Howard's followers on Twitter are paid for by Team Buchwald.

    Here is the link to how they come up with the list. Money gets the most weight along with other shit and I agree with you on his twitter followers.
    My point was even though he is 45 overall, he falls to 93 in marketability and that is a giant slap in the face to the guy who thinks he is the king of all media.
