    Howard's Academy Award's discussion became a rant against Jennifer Lopez. He's still butthurt that American Idol picked her as a judge and that she's an earner that doesn't spend her life taking selfies with strays. He called Lopez a sow, but SFN will still ban you for calling Beth a horse face. Howard then plugged "Fish In The Dark" for his new business partner Lloyd Braun. All of a sudden Broadway plays are great! Then a farcical paid segment for the grooming place that gave Howard that contrived hair award. Then the SNL wrap up show also known as the Stern interview, this time a hour with Seth Myers, as usual SNL, Lorne Michael's, cock, SNL, Lorne Michael's, cock, repeat.... Then fifty minutes of filler surrounded by commercials every 20 minutes before a 10 minute commercial for Jon Varvatos. Finally the stale, inaccurate news ramblings of Shamu with the workaholic, good company man out the door before hitting the four hour mark.

    The writing is on the wall. Howard is done. SiriusXM doesn't seem to want him back. At least not at the currant salary/schedule. AGT isn't bending over backward to accommodate Howchie anymore because they can read the ratings. There was no "Stern Bump". The end is near.

    Didn't hear a minute yet. Thanks for the recap. Going to give Mark Friggin a run for his money. :)

    That was about as good a description of the show as I have ever heard. Kudos to you, sir!

    I quickly looked at the Friggins write up and it funny that he disses everyone who won the Oscar who were up against friends of the show. Birdman sucked while American Sniper was incredible. Playing Stephen Hawkings is easy while the characters Bradley Cooper and Steven Carrell played were much tougher. He felt the only guy who won the Oscar who deserved to was JK Simmons who was on the show last week.

    Seriously, do people buy his bullshit anymore?

    I thought for sure this morning would be dominated by Howard coming unglued because Birdman walked away with all the hardware last night.

    Haven't heard the show, but based on the above synopsis, I can only assume Buchwald Industries got ahold of Wiggy this morning to remind him just how much his new beloved target demographic - the Hollyweird establishment - is in love with this movie.

    Okay, so there was some criticism of Birdman?

    Now I'm not disappointed that I couldn't find a stream of the show this morning. It appears that everyone who cared enough to stream him got bored to death and quit. Torrents won't do as even the tiny effort they take isn't worth doing. The show seems to have done the impossible and reached another low. How much worse can it get?

    Pluggy had a chance to once and for all put the wig rumours to rest by letting the stylist confirm his hair is the real deal but didn't let the guy with in 10 feet of him even after the wig was mentioned. Anyone that thinks his hair is au natural is fucking insane.

    Not going to subscribe. I checked it out only a handful of times a year even at a 100% discount.

    For shits and giggles I stopped over at SFN to see what they're saying. I was surprised by all the complaining by the few left there. One thread was about posting what you like about Howard. It was created Saturday and had seven replies. :jj: One of the replies included complaints.

    I still LOVE it that Lorne Michaels will not come on Wiggy's show.

    Wiggy has had on just about EVERY SNL cast member in the last 40 years and lathers Lorne's ass... and still no Lorne.

    L O V E it. :cheer2:

    No, they aren't buying it. No one listens anymore for a reason.

    Just caught some of the replay. Turns out the 40 barbers who "voted" for Howard's hair award all work for the guy who has the grooming website. Howard told the story again about Grandpa Saul having black hair when he was in his 90's. Didn't somebody from here check an ancestry website and find out that he died before he reached 90?

    I listened to a bit of the show for free on YouTube. He sounded so pathetic when he got angry that Jennifer Lopez found him gross. "Fuck her! I wouldn't fuck her for five minutes! She's been with too many!" He's surrounded by so many yes men telling him he looks great that he can't take it when an attractive woman is honest.
