    In the Last Few Years:

    Thursday's
    Some Monday's
    Show + WUS = 5 hours now rather than 6 before
    A voice in the Jackie chair
    A live show of any kind on Friday on H100
    George Takei 4 times a year to 2 times a year
    No daily live shows of any kind on 101 during the day
    No special shows - nighttime, film festival, roasts, no use of the ISDN lines that were installed for impromptu shows
    Miserable Men cancelled and not replaced
    Ferrall's salary cut

    What did I miss.......long live the Revolution

    MM was a great show for the first couple of years. But by the end, I had stopped listening. I think the first mistake made with that show was going from two to four hours. Tim does this a lot with shows that generate some kind of buzz. He overexposes them. Some of the four hour MM shows were great, but others dragged in the middle. The best parts were when they talked about their weekend gigs together. These usually involved Shuli relating some embarrassing anecdotes he observed during the weekend about Bob. They would end up with some kind of 'Bob is a Retard' game. I always loved those. But you can do all that in an hour or two. Then Bob quit/was fired. I tried listening after that. But each week I would turn off the radio earlier and earlier, until I stopped listening entirely. The dynamic between Bob and Shuli was what made that show so good. Take either of them out of the mix, and you don't have as good a show.

    I'll add:

    Comedians sitting in during the news
    Appearances by certain wackpackers (Crazy Alice comes to mind)

    To be fair, I think Howard's contract has always been for 4 live hours of Howard.... for each day that he bothers to show up...

    the rest all TRUE.

    Well, yeah, Shvoogie B., that's part of the point -- that extra 1/2 hour or so was always a nice warm thank you to his fans. Now that strict 10 AM dash out the door is a nice warm fuck you to those fans.

    In fairness to Howard, he's generously compensated for these collateral losses by, entertaining us with, countless hours of daring & edgy cock talk. In other words -- cock has filled Howard's holes

    Otherwise known as free advertisment cross promotion for another NBC show.

    Same reason Rachel Maddow all of a suddan became hot.

    Howard's on team NBC now

    I also think Howard is really badly served by the staff around him - Tim Sabien hasn't broken a single new talent on Howard's air and he failed to keep or even attract a second show which is kind of needed to fill 2 channels

    I was sad for Howard talking contract negotiations, having eye of the tiger and saying he could program a third music channel when his channels are really a wasteland of replays

    You know he may not be getting paid for it, but why not do at least an extra hour a week for the fans? I'm not even talking about an extra day which would be out of the question. I'm just asking for a little something for the fans.

    Are you a slow adult?

    HOWARD ALLAN STERN programs his channels with his marbles.
    Tim is paid to take the beating that Stern deserves!
    Stern & Buchwald pocket all the Sirius money and use the channels to make more marbles.
    Gordon Gekknose is the real villain.
