    Have no fear...he's just trying to appeal to the common man that he said he hates. He actually loves commercials. It gives Fred a chance to play songs we've never heard before like "Ramble On" or "Black Hole Sun" in their entirety AND allows Howard to go to the bathroom and tick off his minutes in the building.

    Also, he gets the chance to make more money because those companies that don't pay him actually DO! Who knew? Maybe it's not direct into your pocket Hamptons Howie, but you are getting paid. This common man knows what is up you mother fucker.

    Beth has 5 new fosters she taking care of and Howard would be neglected if he stayed home.

    Sure, Howard hates commercials. Almost as much as much as Beth hates being famous.

    He said today that he wishes Sirius would let him broadcast without commercials. Robin suggested that he ask management if they can do just one day commercial free. Howard told Robin that she should ask them that. Howard then went on to say that Sirius wants their money so they are stuck having commercials.

    I have a simple solution for Howard. If during you entire show you run 45 minutes of commercials, then just make your show 45 minutes longer. That way you get to make up for the time you aren't on the air and give the audience what they have always expected they were getting when they signed up. Remember when you said "some commercials" on Letterman before your launch? Most people didn't think some meant a commercial break 15 minutes into the show and live reads every 5 minutes during the news.

    This is part of a planned "Turk Rebel-Rebel Makeover" revisionist strategy, while he's still at least marginally able to draft onto what's left of his edgier reputation now that Stern's proven he has neither the face nor personality to appeal to desirable prime time TV demographics.

    And perhaps it'll work that one of the streamers with money to burn like Pandora or Amazon will buy in, thinking they have purchased instant market share and credibility - only to be disappointed after the fanfare dies down and inevitably sued somewhere down the line.

    Howard has become a lazy broadcaster. But he gets paid more for a live read. Marbles over laziness.
