    Do you think if Howard could make $300 million in retirement but become a complete nobody he would do it? I don't think so.

    It would be extremely hard for Howard, Beth and his kids to go through that much money in their lifetimes.

    Those syndication profit checks along with writing and acting residuals and DVD profits have kept Jerry from needing to work (though he does) for the past 16 years. Fucking "Seinfeld" has grossed $3 BILLION in syndication and keeps going.

    I am not sure how much royalties Howie gets from his movie, books "Son of the Beach" and other nonsense from 20 years ago. Probalby enough for pay for one months of lawn mowing for his homes in the Hamptons and Palm Beach.

    He will end up selling the old (good) years of shows. Plus he'll always be promoting some new project.
    And I don't think he'll REALLY retire when this contract is up. SIM card maybe?? :jj:

    Howard has grossed close to 1 Billion in earnings in his career, through tax shelters and creative accounting I am sure he's probably kept as much as possible from going to the IRS and we also know how cheap and frugal he is (with the lone exception of buying into the Hamptons & Florida). He very well could have north of $300 million in net investments that are earning him millions a year in interest, if Wiggy stopped working there will still be dump trucks of money coming his way.

    There really is no point in him continuing to work other than it's an excuse to get out of the house and do something. The dollar numbers are huge to us peasants but to Wiggy even earning an extra $10 million from AGT is like throwing your pocket full of change into a jar when you get home.

    You mean to tell me when Howard retires Sirius won't want to pay him $50 million a year for the rights to play Mammary Lane shows from 1989? Howard seems to think we love listening to 30 year-old radio broadcasts so why wouldn't Sirius?

    For some reason I have a hard time believing Howard has 1 billion dollars. Even his whole career earnings I can't imagine him having that much in the bank.
    Seriously 10mill for being a judge on a shitty American Idol knock-off? That better not be what he got for just signing the contract, It's gotta be what he'll have after five years.

    I can't see anyone in the entertainment industry offering 10mil for Howard to do anything unless they are incredibly high/fan of the show.

    There has to be one credible entertainment industry manager who works at Sirius or knows about his contract and has to be thinking everyone was incredibly stupid for paying him 500mil.

    He's the master at some how getting people to vastly overpay for him compared to what he really is worth. He likes to talk big but always fails to deliver.

    Howard can't retire because the day he doesn't have a soap box is the day no one holds back on talking about him. From O&A to Chevy Chase, none of them will have to worry about consequences.

    Reruns of a radio show is a joke. Wiggy the idiot thinks he will get Seinfeld money.

    You have a point there. If O&A bring up Howard management contacts them immediately as their talking about him. When he's gone would Howard be sitting at home obsessing about people talking about him? Very Howard Hughes.
