    I have to say, I hung in there a while. But every guest just doesn't pertain to me at all -- Betsey Johnson? Gay Doogie Howser?

    I'm not some Confederate-flag waving, pro-wrestling watching, gun-toting caveman ... but if Howard has evolved to mostly being a "great" interviewer, at least get some guests that at least some of his audience can relate to.

    It doesn't have to be throwing baloney on strippers' asses, but if he is going to go the Larry King route, can the interviewees at least be proportional to the general population? For example, aren't straight people in the majority still?

    Again, I'm not homophobic. I don't care what the gays do -- in fact, I think it's way easier to be gay in a blue state than straight. They have the Grinder and can meet guys at rest stops and such. They don't have nagging wives or kids who take every penny. They earn more, have clean houses, abs. "Goo" for them.

    Even the Pam Anderson questions were kind of gay.

    Is Howard just shitting on whatever core fans he has left?

    If the interviews were good it wouldn't matter who the guests are. The HSS was able to make the creepy Mark Harris and numbskull, horrible actor George Takei interesting. But he wouldn't be able to do it today. You don't have to imagine, just listen to the last time Takei or Gilbert were on.

    I think Marci Tuck has a bigger say on whose on than Beth. But who knows? I can't listen to most of these interviews. I bail out after 10 minutes.

    This is the caliber of guests that the 2015 THSS can get.

    There aren't going to be many Jennifer Lawrence's or Hillary Clinton's who even know who Wigward A Gunk is

    I thought the same today
    I mean personally I would rather listen tom Craig Gass or stuttering john perhaps Jackie for an hour than a has been model. Get Corey Feldman in for god sake

    Every guest has the same predictable boring story, of a has been

    And guess what they are pitching a book

    NPH has an interesting past as a child star, then a period of obscurity, then a huge resurgence to a hit TV show and on to stage & hosting. That all makes for great interview material.

    If you break it down enough, his "gayness" is part of him but immaterial to most of his achievement. He's an interesting celeb, and he's gay.

    It's Howard that (surprise!) heads straight to cawk-tawk. Be alienated by Howard. Almost everyone else is!

    Who the fuck is Betsy Johnson? I don't want to google her in fear she might get some run from her interview with Wiggy.

    He does get guest his audience can relate to. His audience is gay. His straight audience abandoned the show once he stopped going to Scores, painting boobs green for St. Patrick's Day and him having on strippers and porn stars. Now his guest are Rosey O'Donell and Ellen. If you still listen I would start questioning my sexuality. Just sayin...

    Beverly Johnson?
    Never heard of her.


    Beverly Johnson (born October 13, 1952)[1] is an American model, actress, and businesswoman. She rose to fame when she became the second African-American model to appear on the cover of American Vogue in August 1974

    In late 2014, she wrote an article for Vanity Fair about her attempted rape by Bill Cosby. Johnson said that Cosby spiked a cup of cappuccino with an unknown drug. Realizing what was happening, Johnson said she screamed and cursed at him several times before Cosby dragged her out and hailed a cab for her. [12] In the article, she accuses Cosby of drugging her in a meeting at his Manhattan residence in the 1980s, although she stated that the incident did not involve sexual assault.[13] Her memoirs in which she discusses the Cosby incident was released on August 25, 2015.

    This is relevant? No Artie or Gilbert, but let's get Beverly in ASAP?

    Hi Kaboom. It's nice to see you made it over to Dawg's after SFN's demise.

    It all happened within a blink of an eye. That's something I never expected.

    It's really great here. You're not going to find many members that are still fans of Howard's which may be a little tough for you, but you can say just about anything you want. We've got out freedom of speech back.

    And everyone's favorite ex-staffer, John Daniels is here too. He's freaking hilarious. He's getting his ass kicked left, right and everywhere else you can think of..... and rightfully so.

    I often wonder if Djenkin is lurking around anymore. If so, his head is probably close to exploding reading all of the negative comments around here.

    It's a blast here. It really is, so enjoy yourself
