    I say flip it upside down and remove #1. There's not enough whackpackers. Problem is, the current batch is no good.

    Any valid criticism is welcome, but no way is #5 not #1. He also left out "the show is bore", "the funny is gone", "he's not trying", "you have to pay for it", and "who?".

    Overall it was well written. I think he posts at the other place but maybe not for long.

    Scott's right it is an insult to call Bobo & MFB wackpackers. They contribute no sidesplitting laughter like Beet or Hank, just thoughts of listener suicide.

    1. I was laughing less than once per 4-hour show
    2. The same rants and unfunny "bits" day after day after day like Groundhog Day Radio
    3. The number and length of commercial breaks and plugs interrupting the show were increasing weekly
    4. The actual show cast no longer participates in any bits with any potential embarrassment factor
    5. Howard is no longer honest about the kinds of things he made a career being honest about and
    Robin is allowed to refuse to answer the types of questions that anybody on the HSS used to have
    to answer if they wanted to be on the air at all.

    I thought it was pretty good. Can someone twitter the link to Howard or Beth? I tend to go one step further, I don't think he's that great of an interviewer. He frequently interrupts, relies on the same "shocking" set of sex questions, shows that he does very minimal research and thus get's fairly predictable responses. I mean he cackled with glee when he got brain-dead Denise Richards to admit she does anal like it was the discovery of the century.

    The Wackpack itself is strong; it's that the gay manager (Howie) is starting the scrubs (Asshole Ed, Debbie, Bobo) and benching the All Stars (Fred, Crackhead, Bigfoot, Beet, etc).

    The guy absolutely nailed almost all the points

    The fake fights, boring interviews, and boring segments are causing more and more to turn his show off
