    At least Jackie was funny. He was there for the golden age when people loved the show. But anyone would have trouble making wig funny today.

    Haven't listened in awhile, so a comment and a question...

    1) By monologues, do they mean those awful things Howard did at the beginning of some shows when he acted like he wanted the open late night gig? God awful.

    2) Who is getting replaced?
