    Or more like he's got an account here and loathes them as much as we do.

    There is still hope.

    50/50 chance Fred is divorced or separated.

    Maybe he has something better to do? Watching paint dry is probably a better investment of his time. :dontknow:

    Fred is just riding out his contract. Money changes some people. Some people it doesn't.

    As Fred's senility progresses, he's basically turning into his character from Private Parts.

    howard and the staff conveniently forgot how Jon Hein and Fred said AGT was beneath Howard and he should not do it before he signed on. You know everyone on the staff hates that stupid show.....it must really hurt "TV Expert" Jon Hein to lie through his teeth about how great it is.

    In all honesty, I think Fred doesn't buy into this AGT bullshit, Howard's celebrity ass kissing BS or his gold digging wife. As Spazz has said, I think Fred is just riding out his contract.

    Fred doesn't even play most of his funny sound bits anymore either. I guess he got the memo about show's new direction and about it being evolved. He's just punching the clock now and doing bare minimum he needs to please Howard so Howard doesn't complain about him on air.

    fred only goes where his paycheck dictates. he hates howard. he's not gonna do him a solid and be the most famous person in the audience just to bulk howard's ego.

    I try to give Fred a bit more credit. I think he knows the new Howard is a fraud but hes one of the few people on the show making a respectable wage. Ride it out now and Expose the wig fraud when hes done away with them all and is Florida bound with Future divorcee Beff.

    Passive-aggressive move by Fred.

    It's the only way he can express his contempt for Howard.

    I'm sure Fred refusing to join Howard's band is another instance of Fred saying "fuck you".

    And Fred can actually PLAY guitar.

    There is no one on the show that has checked out more than Fred. That includes Wigward and Robin.

    Sucks too - because at his prime, he was the king of drops.
