    Multiple mentions of re-signing today and carefully inserted mentions of phantom offers to do other amazing things. There's really no suspense this time, he'll re-sign with Sirius, no one else wants him at his price and with his demands. Expect a three hour show, no "news" and that's about it. Howard's desperate to keep Robin alive long enough to get her signature on the papers, that seemed clear with his irritation at her drinking. Fred will go along with anything that pays him well to cue up commercials and occasionally laugh.

    Honest Howard wants to re-sign now...TODAY.
    That doesn't sound like a guy with the upper hand this time around.

    (no Mel....wink-wink)

    If he re-signs, it can't be for much....if Sirius does re-sign him for something significant, they won't last 2 years.

    ...i didnt listen so i missed the groveling. sounds funny tho. howard leans on people around him to try to be funny or have conversation. i dont see him doing anything on his own for a network, they can see his 'skills' from E shows on youtube. whats he got to offer? i just remembered how he tried to take credit for inventing bill mahrs politically incorrect while "interviewing" bill. hes 60 and hes ugly and pussy whipped. you know beth would have a role in the show even if it was just a huge framed picture of her on a tiny table.

    I pretty sure the offer from the company that took over Howard TV last January is real. I mean since they took over Howard TV from In Demand, that service has exploded. It is easier to find someone who doesn't watch Howard TV these days than ones who do.

    It is always Howard's MO. Tease these great deals and things that are coming up in the future only to not deliver on anything.

    Not trying to be a smartass, but how can you be p-whipped if you sleep in a different room than your wife and she thinks that sex is "icky"?

    I keep it for Sirius NFL radio, but even that loses my interest because during the season I listen to local sports radio and podcasts.

    I think that's just "in-control higher elevated being Howard" again looking down on anyone who doesn't see "fun" as a portion that is to be had, then turned off with plenty of time to get to bed.

    My prediction - 2 year contract, with options to extend on yearly basis upon mutual written consent, a lot less money, but less airtime (hours per day, weeks per year) so Howard can still claim it as a "win".

    The bucket matches her head, unlike most of her fashion statements.

    Lots of "meetings" with that prick. Just don't look him in the eye.

    Lower pay, with fewer hours as a face-saving gesture.

    Howard's partner in crime Mel gave him the last Sirius deal.
    No Mel this time around
