    Howard must have no viable options despite the BS today that "many people are willing to pay me to do this show"

    Why else would he still be at the table. Best moved if he had options would be to push back from the table and make SXM sweat for him on Dec 31st and hit the bid.

    I do think this might drag into the holiday week but he will cut hours and weeks and still make the same per hour of show live delivered.

    He will sign for anything they offer him. He is out of options and he wont be able to retire to kitten manor. For what its worth, no one sounds like it's their last paycheck.

    I would think the drama queen will play this out as a cliffhanger into next year.

    I agree, 2 shows a week and and a 33% cut in pay. I don't see how they can justify keeping the entire "staff" though. Surely they can't cut JD, Sal, Richards,... salary by that much, but they can't justify paying them full time for a twice a week show.

    No one wants him.

    Cut his balls off, Sirius.

    Howard is done -

    AGT experiment = FAILED - ratings down in his time

    Birthday show sale to Netflix or other platform = FAILED (Sirius probably watched that carefully)

    Howard 101 and 102 (!) = FAILED

    Howard TV = FAILED - clearly low user count as dawgshed interview seemed to imply (why else would they hide the #s from staff?)

    He is out of choices and has to re-sign w Sirius. They should hold firm...the alternative is nothing other than a podcast w/ sponsors and Howard has always said he will not dig into his own pocket for his own initiatives (ie start-up capital for a professional podcast) - plus the audience is not there and he would be taking downside risk

    This is a Daily News story. So you know the source is from Howard's camp. Probably trying to use the press to pressure Sirius to up their offer.

    I would love to hear the numbers that bandied around. Of course, whatever the numbers are, they will be over inflated by Team Buchwald.

    He has many options; Netflix, apple, Pandora, etc - but none of them are ideal, since they cant really reach as many cars, a key demographic. Plus, hes 62, I think the upward struggle of growing a network doesn't sound good - he already did that. Also, despite all the haters on this forum, his show has reached a new peak in terms of A-List guests and respect for him as an interviewer from respected people like Charlie Rose, etc.

    Long Live Howard!
