    Jay is not neurotic about making every last dime out of something like Howard. He'll take his cash and enjoy having more dough than anybody can spend in a lifetime and be happy with it.

    NBC is still getting more value for their buck than Sirius is with Howard.

    This is going to kill Howard. Just about everyday he basically begs Sirius to buy out his contract. On Monday a caller asked, "Is it true you're leaving us early?"

    Howard said, "I've got a contract for three years. Unless they come up with a cockamamie reason to fire me ... and pay me off."

    Leno is stepping down in February and his contract expires in September.

    Is that a year?

    You're right.

    By the way, thanks for the shoutout.

    Our athletic director, who of course hired our women's basketball coach, was athletic director of Tulane in the late 90s. So all week I've been hearing about New Orleans this, New Orleans that.

    They ought to pay him to stay off Fox. The American public likes him and he will attract an audience wherever he goes.

    He'll finally have time for a Collision Course 2. Pat Morita will be thrilled (if he's still alive).

    I bet Jay give a handsome bonus to the entire staff. I bet it will be enough so that if they play their cards right they won't have to work again.
