    He has Gilbert on in the 7:00 hour just so he can get him in and out BEFORE the news. Gilbert and Howard riffing during the news is one of the all time best bits on the Stern Show. Can't he stay one time a year (since that is all that Gilbert is on these days) and do a longer news and have some fun? Or at worst, start the news at 7 or 7:30 and go for an hour and a half.

    He just has to get out at 9:00, no matter what. Old howard would have stayed on until the bit was over, no matter what. Those days are gone, I guess.

    How did this work out? Lots of Hamptons psycho babble bullshit on how Gilbert is a turd for being Gilbert? Gilbert should just tell Booey to fuck himself whenever he calls for him to come in......And that was Artie riffing with Gilbert that was gold, And Robin screeching trying to "Read" The news over them........

    The time thing is acutely more passive aggressive Howard.
    In his last contract he had to do 0600 to 1000. Howard went to 11 each days. Sometimes to 1145-1200.

    In the new contract he got a pay cut. To motivate his claim that he got more money per hour he cut the show by one hour.

    The last three weeks Howard have actually put some more time into the show. He had Shuli sit in. Some pre made bits. A couple of comics sitting in.
    Howard have made staff changes and the back office have to do more stuff.
    I don't know why Howard have made this change. Maybe he have realised that he wants a new employer after Sirius won't renew him. He also knows that he flops on TV.

    Of Course "those days" are gone :rolleye: where ya been for the past 3yrs????
    After Artie left...
    the show has declined....
    Now it's a RUSHED 4hr show 3 days a week!!!
    All I hear is "I HAVE TO BREAK"...."IS IT TIME FOR A BREAK???" "BREAK BREAK BREAK"....every 30mins...
    and during Robin's NEWS????? a LIVE PLUG EVERY 2 MINUTES..


    So how could Gilbert sit in on the NEWS????
    HOward interrupts Robin every fucking minute with a LIVE PLUG!! :facepalm:
    Besides....it's hard to do the show when the "sidekick" is in another location and "out of it" on MEDICATION :facepalm:....

    So of course Howard doesn' t give a shit about the SHOW OR HIS LOYAL FANS....who joined this "revolution" 6yrs ago....
    Question is....
    WHY ARE WE SO LOYAL AND STILL LISTENING to the show???

    "I need to TAKE A BREAK" ;)
    we all do don't we??

    peace & love

    BB I have a question. I know your sister died of cancer so you are familiar with the treatments. But aren't there days where you just feel like garbage? I mean, I know Robin's at home but she hasn't missed a show right? There hasn't been one day where she was just so wiped out that she couldn't do the show? So do you definitely feel she has cancer? Something is fucked up here.

    When Howard started at Sirius he believed he was more of a "partner" than just an employee. He felt he had a financial stake in the overall success of Sirius. That was why we saw him on Letterman and commercials and staying past his contractual time slot. Hell, according to his publicized contract he wasn't even contracted to do FRIDAYS at all, yet he was there.

    No that he lost the lawsuit and Sirius has shown him he's ONLY an employee, his way of sticking it to them is going by the EXEACT letter of the law, or in this case his contract.

    He is refusing to work 1 single day more than required and he does his damnest to get out exactly on time.

    He basically doesn't give a fuck anymore. He's punching a time clock and as long as he has a show on the air for the hours needed he could not care less about content IMHO.

    Did you expect anything different. Howard is the killer of funny. There is no one funny in that studio anymore. Howard could have the funniest person in the world on his show and making him boring and unfunny.

    I think he does care. He must be intentionally doing a shitty show to make Sirius lose subscribers, otherwise it doesn't make sense.
