    What are your opinions? The point the show started going downhill for me. I love KC and John. Richard and Sal with their over the top "gross out" humor was just awful. The prank calls obviously fake. Sal in particular is an awful "actor". I realize now that most of the show staff fights were probably fake, but with Sal you just knew it was fake right away.

    And I know it's not just getting older, as I can still go back and listen to the rainbow room and Jackie busting balls and laugh. One bit in particular with Sal crying I remember was one of the first times I ever turned the show off.

    Also I haven't listened in years, but I will assume it hasn't gotten better.

    I am not a fan of Richard or Sal.... sorry. :dontknow:

    Neither one of them has any chance of success in comedy after the show ends. :no:

    Compared to the current state of the show, anything from the past is comedy fucking gold.

    They're hardly on air anymore. Try giving it a shot again. Some people say the show has never been better.

    Richard is okay. Not his bits or fake shit, but his dad and his stories were good.

    I don't think Sal was acting with the 143 emotional friend story. But as always, any real life stuff gets covered up or erased in favor of bits like "stump Sal" or "Sal is a retard" or whatever that was called. So fake and phony...

    You didn't like when Sal did the past life regression to 1 Million B.C. when he was a turtle? Comedy gold, I tell ya! Gold!

    I remember Richard licking Sals junk and laughing my ass off fake or not I believed it. I loved their gay antics. I still get a monthly request in the mail from Sirius to resign

    I think Richard is funny but agree that Sal is just awful all around. He is going to have no career whatsoever in the entertainment industry once the show ends.

    Yup, me too. Sal or Christine must have complained off-air, because they never really got into it again...

    I really like Richard but have always thought that his dad's voicemails were the fakest bit of all. They got more and more ridiculous.

    Could have been. The first few seemed legit, then they played it up for sure...

    Since she would waste his money on expensive bags and he felt he had to provide them says a lot. I would work with brokers on the NYSE who would complain about their wives and how they didn't work and spend money. I would say well I work why can't they?

    Richard dads voicemails were real. They just couldn't believe a dad would call and share what they deemed mundane

    I personally like Sal and Richard and believe that they have done some funny stuff in the past , but their act has gotten very old.....same one trick pony. The time when Sal overslept and they played the joke on him that Howard wasnt going to resign his contract was probably the lowest point in history for the HSS. So fake and contrived! Also it gets me upset with the Sal doesnt know geography or history bullshit! so fucking fake

    But Jon just said today on the WUS that they'd all be successful after Howard retired. He said sal would do standup and JD would pull clips for kimmel. Was he lying? :dontknow:
