    A good part of the show these days is dominated by bad impressions -- celebrity, whack pack, etc. And most of the impressionists started out as callers who entered a show contest -- and not necessarily the winners of the contest either.

    So the creative staff now consists mostly of callers (who probably don't get a dime) who read lame lines written by Benji and Elisa. Way to put together a staff Wiggy.

    Cheap ass motherfucker.

    Today Howard told a caller that he was working on a scripted sitcom...he also said it might not ever see the light of day. Funniest thing he said to another caller today was that Beth has great taste in clothes and knows how to dress herself and other people..:haha:

    Howard's got a lot of time to fill with zero budget allocated for talent.
    What do they want from me, Robin? These are MY FANS.

    Don't forget the song parodies that are fan-submitted.

    So in other words, what you're saying is that the show is shit... well, you've said it all... anything else Robin?

    phone callers were the lifeblood of the show when it was good

    Yup, and what made it funny was that it flowed naturally. Now everything is so forced.
