    I still can't get past how unceremoniously these guys (and rest of the TV crew) were apparently kicked to the curb.
    Note: I realize Goodstein posted this in October so forgive me if it's already been discussed. :hat:

    You know that at some point there was a closed door meeting with Howard, Don Buchwald, Gary, and a few other execs. They discussed the cancellation of Howard TV and how to address it on the air. Do they have a send off, do they have a special show, do they have have a going away party, etc. After all that the best they could come up with it is, "don't acknowledge it, don't bring it up, don't take phone calls about it, don't make a big deal about it, pretend it is positive, don't say goodbye to anyone, don't say you will miss some of these people that have been there for almost 20 years, pretend they never exisited and don't mention their names."

    Stay classy Stern.

    In the old days (COWARD) lunch box Howard would have someone else to blame.
    He would vow to go to bat for you with the fake entity on your behalf.

    I always liked Doug. He was so good to Hank, best wack-packer of all time, IMO.

    Was he good to him, or did he just exploit him outside the show as Wiggie did on the show?

    it was quite anticlimatic ....no thank you's for your loyalty or the job you've done. no good-bye's or explanation to the listeners. nothing!

    i wish one would break their silence....he or she could be anonymous and just "imply" rather than state what goes on behind the scenes.
    howard doesn't deserve anyone's loyalty or discretion.

    Never thought of it that way, but you could be right. Doug just seemed to have genuine affection for him...or maybe I'm a sucker.

    Howard's big thank you for their years of service was inviting the former HTV guys to the holiday party at the fish place.

    Pics or it didn't happen, because I'm sure it only happened 2 years ago.

    I do not feel sorry for lazy people who's career ends were written on the wall years ago.

    IMHO Scot Einziger, stuttering John ect. were the ambitious and smart ones of the HSS flunkies.

    Remember when Howard got all pissed because Scott Eizinger (sp?) left the E! show to go produce for the Amazing Race?

    Why would Howard address Howard TV when there is a billion dollar bidding war between Netflix and Apple for the rights?
