    So Howard said that NBC approached him over the break to sign up for a second season of AGT. I call BS!!! It certainly wasn't after the ratings disaster of last week. I think Howard alluded to why he said that NBC asked him back is because everyone will assume if he doesn't do a second season that everyone will think he was fired. By saying NBC offered him a contract to stay, I think he is laying the ground work to say he decided not to do a second season. He even threw out there at Don Buckwald said he could walk away from his Sirius contract at any time (after Buckwald screwed up Howard's bonus language, I don't think Howard should be listening to Don about contract advice).

    Buchwald didn't screw him on contract "Bonus"
    Howard is a Delusional Greedy Pig and the Courts agreed.

    Actually he did, the contract should have absolutely spelled out how subscriber bonuses should have been calculated in the event of a merger. Howard should have sued his lawyers/agent because they fucked up

    NBC probably approached him about whether he would be willing to do a second year FOR FREE since he fleeced them on the first year and killed their ratings

    I'm surprised Howard isn't claiming that they want him on American Idol now that he's america's judge.

    I don't think Buchwald or Howard's lawyers screwed up the original contract language - it wasn't like Sirius agreed to count XM subs if the companies merged and the language didn't reflect the deal. If Howard or Buchwald had proposed that detailed language, Sirius wouldn't have agreed to it. Howard and Don just tried to make a cash grab and Judge Kapnick wasn't buying that BS.

    Anecdotally speaking, why would anyone attribute this morsel as truth out of an impressive portfolio of self-aggrandizing lies, misrepresentations and fairy tales. I suspect this rendition has as much validity as Whoresy actually receiving a firm invitation to canter on DWTS.

    Howard is trying to make himself feel better about the huge mistake NBC made in hiring him. He's lying and just getting ammo for when they fire him by not asking him back next year.

    Howard wouldn't need work to avoid child care. They would hire a stunt uterus to carry the fetus and a crew to take care of the infant.

    But wait...Howard is really really busy with his notebook of ideas for his Sirius channels. Let's not forget he's "working" on bringing back Rock and Roll High School, and a Porkys remake. Howard better becareful he dosent spread himself to thin, he has a beautiful young bride at home waiting for him.

    If it said what Howard claims it does, Sirius never would have signed it.
