    I turned on Howard 100 for literally 5 minutes today and caught Howard interviewing Dave Grohl. They were talking about hanging out and Howard brought up how he is never off. He said he is always working and gets about 2 weeks off per year.

    It is funny to hear where the show was and what it has become. Now we have 12 weeks of vacation and never working Thursday and Friday. He should just be honest and say its a part time show. Also, when some ass kissing fan calls in to say how the show has "never been better," Howard should correct them and say they are trying to do the best they can in the limited format. The sad thing is he would gain more respect from his listeners and not lose any by saying that.

    He doesn't consider the 10 weeks he takes off to do AGT as "time off".

    He calls it essentially a "working vacation".

    I wish someone would pay me $20 million to work on my vacation judging juggling acts and 8 yr old dance troops.

    AGT provides Howard with the additional perks of getting to dance with gay guys and check out another guy's ass on stage.

    And by "weeks", does he mean months?

    SuperFan Round Table is defending his work schedule. We should be grateful for 15 hours a week of new content.

    That's like saying I should be grateful I got valor points for a heroic boss kill in SoO instead of a 572 heroic weapon. LAWLALWAL

    Howie confuses weeks with months.

    Wiggy's GayGT gig is one of the greatest entertainment heists of all time. $35 million dollars for terrible lower ratings and the inability to fill 500 seats in his home town where he worked forever.

    "I predict 20 million viewers Howard. The show is going to be absolutely huge with you on it."

    It's more about the callers who don't step up.

    Fuck him, his time off, his wig, his vacations, houses, horse faced wife, and ill fitting John Varvatos clothing. That cocksucker works 12 hours a week for ungodly money. Who cares?

    Whats he saying, Robin?

    I'm with ya puppet. I'm not sure the premier will be a disaster but the ratings from then on will look like a Utah ski slope.

    He isn't even that honest. He considers it working harder than even when he is on the air on Sirius. Sirius is the working vacation time from AGT.
