I just thought about this. Considering that Robin is all but gone, and Fred has one foot in the spaceship, I can't imagine that SiriusXM would just give Howard total freedom to come back and do as he pleased (like he can now). I realize if he had to put someone in studio he would probably go with Shuli, I'm just throwing this out there for fun. If SiriusXM said "Okay Howard, we're in for one more deal, but we're going to need at least 2 live shows a week, the fans are clamoring for Jackie or Artie, we're going to require you to bring one of them back in studio." Assuming that was the only way he could get more money, would he swallow his pride and let the Jokeman or Baby Gorilla back in? Or would he say fuck it and go off to podcast land?
