    This morning while discussing Gary Shandling's death he revealed that he was shocked the Carson would allow guest hosts when he was on vacation. Revealing the fact that these guest hosts could be more talented than Johnny. Howard basically admitted that he could never allow a "guest host" to be funnier than him.

    Fast forward 30 minutes to the interview with Bubba and a weird discussion on why Bubba isn't on the channels. Howard says "I don't want to be anyone's boss anymore". Translation - I don't want anyone to be more funnier than me or have more airtime than me on the channels.

    I don't see why he wouldn't let Sal and Richard do a show for a day when he's on vacation. They wouldn't be a threat to him and it might be funny.

    Well, with those two the answer is VERY simple: they suck and are unfunny.

    dawgshed did a great interview with an anonymous source that was either Depace or Goodstein. It was revealed that Marci Turk has become Howard's puppet master and she gave the order to destroy 101

    I'd like to say you are really reading into his comments, but there is a reason that there's no other original programming on his channels and maybe that's why.

    Back in the mid 80's when Stern first syndicated to Philadelphia, he took his usual Christmas vacation. The Philadelphia radio station paired comedian Rich Scheidener with female DJ Debi Calton as a replacement for a week. Stern was LIVID. I believe the mandate went out after that stating you will carry the Stern show for 52 weeks, even if it is "best of".

    Maybe because there wasn't one decent show on the channel, Buuba sucked, and clearly was a loose cannon, and Scott's show was just as bad, I never once tuned in to one of them. None of the other shows was remotely entertaining, except for Howard to goof on. Tell me one show that would survive on radio more than a day.

    Sternthology is 100x better.

    Not one other radio or TV host has guest hosts anymore, (other than cable news) Carson was not the norm

    This is why the show sucks. Howard on his own is not funny. But he used to surround himself with funny people. Now it's Benji and the news woman. And tan mom.

    Personally, he never really did anything he promised with those channels so I gave up on that a long time ago.

    And I have to admit I enjoy listening to the old shows, with jackie, billy and even artie at times.

    Carson knew he was the best at what he did. Wiggy is a charlatan who rode the whirlwind of controversy to get ratings.

    Well once you are just a "salaried" employee with no subscriber bonuses why do anything extra that takes more of your time.

    Marci and GTD means freeing Howard's time - he may pay her salary out of his.
