    Uhhh.....no. They all suck. Artie was the worst cast member on MadTV, his stand-up sucks (but I give Artie credit for knowing and admitting all of this), and just watch ANY episode of his recent talk show. They're ALL horrible. But the worst and most pathetic are the ones with people like Jackie and KC. They're all worthless without Howard there to ridicule them and MAKE them funny......

    Artie & Jackie.......zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz



    Artie & a Fat Bloated Mumbling KC Armstong..........sad



    Jackie Martling slumming on the Dopey & Tony Show.........pathetic.



    The Hilarious Comedy Stylings of John Melendez.........wow.



    This is what became of your heroes with no Howard around to make them interesting or funny. They're a step above the various Whack Packers who are/were only funny talking to Howard and in the context of the show. I won't even bother with Billy West. The guy was just a parrot, an empty vessel who read from a script. And even doing that, he also sucked on Ren & Stimpy.

    Did Howard get funny again post-marriage to BethO?
    I wouldn't know.
    I gave up post-self-inflicted stab-wound Artie.

    No. He quit caring even before Artie turned himself into a pin cushion.

    The show has been terrible since about the beginning of 2009-give or take.

    It was bad then. It's just gotten worse since.

    Jackie was at retirement age for a comedian when he left the show. There's no reason to expect him to top what he did during his prime years.

    Before the show Artie got consistent work in TV and movies despite known addiction issues. You don't keep getting hired in those circumstances in Hollywood unless you are genuinely talented (or through nepotism/slapped a Yarmulka).

    Howard, on the other hand, never produced anything worth listening to before Jackie joined or after Artie left. That's not a coincidence - he didn't magically start being funny the same time he hired Jackie and he didn't decide to give up on life post Artie (look at how hard he still tries be liked on AGT).

    Billy West.... but regardless, considering the present state of the show, the departures of Jackie, SJ, KC Armstrong, Billy and random others drive home the reality of just how symbiotic unfunny Howie's association with them really were.

    A talented voice actor who can't create anything on his own. He can enhance the funny of something written for him. That is a talent. Fake David Letterman was very funny too sometimes. And a complete waste other than being able to mimic the real David Letterman's voice and mannerisms. But Billy West is nothing on his own and at least knew better not to ad lib most of the time.

    Billy West has done voices on like 200 hundred shows. Did you or anyone else rush to watch these shows just because Billy West was doing a voice on them?
