    Robin and Fred are united in their stance on keeping Jackie off the show. If Robin dies, does he get to come back. I know Howard said he wouldn't do the show without her the day she had her surgery, but, there is no way he is leaving 100 million on the table if she dies with two years left on the contract.

    You know the drill:
    -Shuli is in the Jackie chair.
    -Liesel G is being groomed for the Robin booth.
    -If Fred gets out of line, Sour Shoes* will replace him in a heartbeat.

    *Sour Shoes, BTW, is the only one on that list with any talent...

    Jackie would kill to be back too. He would be so on his game if Howard could get over his having left and just take him back. Jackie told me in an email that he would work a week for free just to show Howard what the show could go back to. Howard just doesn't want that. He even mentioned today he was shocked Jackie wasn't lobbying for the job.

    They are saying on HLN that the bay side of Long Beach Island got whacked. Isn't that where Robin's beach house is?

    You know what? Jackie coming back wouldn't fix the show. It's too far gone.

    For so many years I wanted Ace Frehley and Peter Criss back in KISS. It lasted one album and that album......meh. Too many years and too much control by Gene and Paul who got fantastically rich.

    We want the heyday back, but you can't go home again. It's never really the same.

    As much as I love Jackie and want him to come back, he alone could never resurrect the corpse. The show is dead, because Howard killed it. He's phones I in to pick up a paycheck. Even if Jackie scribbled off the greatest jokes ever, Howard would probably ignor 99% of them because he'd either be doodling or have his eye on the clock wishing it were 10:00.

    Of all Howchie's bullshit, the thing that gets me most pissed is the fact that he won't have jackie sit in for at least one show. The show has become so slow and pedantic compared to what it was during the jackie years. Howchie just doesn't give a shit anymore, if he did he would have hired jackie immediately after artie freaked out. just having jackie sit there being mocked over his horrible movies and career choices would be radio gold but howchie has just become a grade A asshole. He so deluded that i'm sure he truly believes that this current format of the show is better than what he did in the 90's.

    some listener wrote in and cursed out shuli saying that he doesn't have the talent of artie and jackie. howard actually said that he was surprised that the author of the letter had such praise for jackie. howchie is such an ungrateful prick, jackie brought so much to that show as writer. i really can't wait for the day when beth finally leaves his selfish, broken down ass. I did like him busting baba booey's balls though, always good times when the monkey gets fucked with

    Its up to SiriusXM. Robin have a performer contract directly with SiriusXM.
    THSS have not money in its budget to hire a replacement. Thats why for example Shuli sits in.

    (and thats why Howard complains that if he fires Benjy he cant get a replacement. It would be interesting to know if Sirius was prepared to hire a replacement for Artie when they let his contract run out. Now Sirius pocketed the 600-650K that Artie made)

    Since SiriusXM hates Howard, I don't believe they will pony up money to hire someone to Howard.

    Agreed. Howard has completely lost the ability to relate to his audience and know (or care) if they're being entertained. Remember when he used to cut off interviews that weren't going anywhere? Now every one goes at least an hour no matter how lame and boring it is.
