    Gary has been with the show since the beginning. Sal and Richard were both super fans before getting hired. Fred has seen every different line up of talent....

    My question is... Are they aware how bad things have become? I get that they can't say anything... But are they too blinded by money, Howard ass kissing and propaganda to realize how far the show/brand has fallen? Do they realize the channels are falling apart? Do they secretly shake their heads at P.C. AGT Howard? Do they call Beth "Yoko" behind her back? Listening to Gary and John (and honestly the rest of the crew) on the Wrap Up Show its hard to gauge the pulse of the staff.

    I would imagine sal and Jason internally shake their heads 10-20 times a show. They were huge fans of classic Howard and now he's a self-censoring old woman. Plus in Jason's case, Howard took away his show despite how popular it became.

    I'll bet Monkey thinks he's doing a great job, producing a cutting-edge show. Robin has less self-awareness than a can of pudding. The rest, as you say, have chosen to coast.

    The guys in the office got to be fuming behind the scenes.

    Jason, Will, Sal, Richard, JD all have to come in on wednesday, thursdays and fridays when the wig
    is galavanting around the hamptons with his horse taking pictures of kittens for a shit calendar
    that only fuckin retards would buy.

    Stern takes away the Back Office Radio show cuz it was getting more interest, listeners and callers
    than Stern's lame ass show who only allows Marianne, Bono and ETM to call in and lick his ass.

    And now Stern has the balls to say he's "all-in."

    That's how I feel Gary is completely unaware how bad things are...

    Sal seems the most defeated by what his fantasy job has become. He's like a guy that marries his long-time dream girl -- who's been the subject of his obsession for most of his life, just as she turns into a pig.

    They know the show is bad, but would you go up to your boss and say it to his face if you were in a similar position? They obviously have to defend boff in public.

    Exactly, the real fun starts when Howard starts to jettison employees and they go on other shows. :evil:

    These are in Jason's favorites. I think he's very aware.

    Anyone who follows Sal knows he did a twitter coooking segment sunday afternoons on twitter.

    But apparently that got him too much attention. People actually enjoyed his recipes.



    And now it disappeared several months ago without any explanation from Sal.

    Howard put a stop to it just like he did BOR and The Block Party.

    There was even a guy in the bar who pretended to be Sal when he did those, Howard killed his whole act too. :depressed:

    The main characters are too blinded by the money and past glory to see what the show has become. Don't know about the others.

    I think they have some idea that the show is a shell of it's former self.

    However, I think they're more worried about their own lives and what will happen if Stern does decide to pack it in at the end of this year.

    ^^^ this. They have to tow the line, you'll never hear their real opinion until it's all said and done.
