    I don't know how to feel about Howard and his non-stop plugging for Agt.

    On one hand, it's annoying that he is basically rehashing the Sirius / krock campaign that he pulled just 6 years ago.

    On the other hand, it's entertaining to see just how much of a bitch Howard has become for his new NBC masters...

    I feel like the King of All Marbles is up to his old shenanigans. The only thing good about AGT is the opportunity for the ratings to land in the shitter. AGT has no where to go but down.

    KOAB's Beth-Ho photo call lured me into listening to a "new" show for the longest time since Artie left.

    It wasn't as horrible as I'd expected, as I've been conditioned to expect radio poop from anything 2010-present.

    That said, I don't think I could listen to full new shows on a daily basis.

    I'll just slink back to my fuzzy 1993 cocoon, dreaming of full archives from 1990-1992.

    if the ratings go down then its everyone's fault but Howard ... if they go up

    then it is because of him

    I don't know. The AGT talk doesn't bother me. He's not really plugging as much as he's talking about his day.
    Sure, he'd like if everyone tune in but it's not like he's asking us to buy anything (Unlike Sirius or Private Parts, the book and movie) In fact, I found the movie years worse because he could never talk specifics except to say it was going to be the greatest movie ever.

    I find it more annoying than the Sirius promotion because at least then I was buying into and excited about what he was pushing. Now I'm just excited to see how bad his teeth look in high def.

    Plus, I think it's a good fit for Stern. He's always evaluted chicks and these contestants are basically glorified wackpackers.
