    I haven't listened since he first started doing AGT. I'm not even sure how long it has been. For years before that, I listened every day, religiously . The reduced hours, not getting a replacement for Artie, selling out to AGT and the overall lack of entertainment on the show (not using richard/sal, no cool games or contests) all kind of got to me.

    But lately I miss having something to listen to. I'm wondering how "watered down" the show is now? Should I give it a try again, or would that be a waste of time? Is it all AGT talk like it was when I quit listening before?

    I was thinking of checking out just a special like his birthday show from January. How was that?

    Thanks in advance.

    It is generally accepted that the show started sucking fucking shit around 2010.

    The show is worse than ever. I only listened to few clips and read a few summaries recently.

    You know it's bad when even sycophantic celeb super fans like Natalie Maines are having shitfits over how bad it is.

    That's pretty much what I suspected. :/ Bah. Guess I will just stick to my podcasts. Maybe I will give a listen to Gilbert Gottfried's new one.

    Think of it as getting a meet thermometer pounded into your ear with a sledge hammer. Listening to the show is exactly like that only with a bit of a Benjy Vortex added in.

    Has Benjy done anything since the Anthony Weiner stuff? Or is it just all about that annoying gf of his?

    Does cause the show to come to a grinding halt by writing bits like having a Mitt Romney impersonator bragging that his sperm is better than Obama because he has boy sperm (he had sons while Obama had daughters) count? If yes, he has been up to quite a bit.

    There's always to much to get to! Think of watching grass grow for 4 hours. Now think about just listening to grass grow for 4 hours. The show is several levels down from that. your welcome

    And they dedicate 2 hours everyday to random listeners pounding howard in the ass. Then they light his wig on fire and proceed to put it out by beating wiggy on the head with his notebook full of ideas. It is definitely quite the tenses!

    The show's never been better. With Benjy as head writer and with hard to get guests like Joan Rivers, Howard knocks it out of the park everyday.

    The show sucks so bad that it is considered an instrument of torture in many countries.
