    So I saw Mutt tweet today that he got official word that Super Fan Round Table and Geektime are on hiatus "until further notice". Ralph did tweet yesterday that Geektime was on hiatus but would be coming back "bigger and better". If Geektime isn't on during the month of May, that's a pretty big deal since three of the biggest geek movies of the year are coming out then. Also, a lot of big TV season finales will be happening then.

    Who's next to go on "hiatus"? Dr. Fisch? Riley? Jackie's Joke Hunt? Howard 100 News?

    I wonder why they put shows on hiatus or cancel some. It's not like it costs money.

    so, a show actually has to have at least 2 listeners to remain on the air on Sirius? good to know.

    Wasn't it assumed SFRT was never coming back? Is Mutt trying to prank again?

    SFRT and Geektime will be back on the air right after Back Office Radio makes its return - in the meantime Howard will just fill the channel with more replays and maybe a kitten adoption hour with Beth.

    Howard is saving that $400/week that he paid Mutt, full time stray cat care in the Hampton's doesn't come cheap.

    that would have been a gross overpayment as that "show" put more wear and tear on the facilities than it could possibly have brought in.

    that kitten adoption hour sounds more interesting than SFRT

    About two years ago it was announced that Jon Hein, Jason, Steve Brandono, etc. would be taking a break from their Howard 101 and would be back in a few weeks. We just didn't realize a few weeks would be several hundred weeks.

    I'm still waiting for John Hein's TV Show to return. I don't know why Hein doesn't get a job working on Entertainment Weekly Radio at Sirius. He'd be a better fit there and he actually knows more about TV than the people working on that channel.

    I will admit I follow some dweebs on Twitter. But to follow Mutt?!!

    Ponderous man. Just ponderous.

    A few weeks worth of shows is like several hundred weeks in real time.

    SFRT was always awful, I did like Geektime though, he snagged some pretty great guests

    following Mutt is like following a turd as it moves through a toilet.

    What are you talking about, creepy Hein is a snoozefest with his monotone and ass kissing. The less of him the better

    No, not Riley. If he kills off his show, he'll be calling in and will call him a cheap jеw and will say how he's a field Reggie working for $200/week. He guilt-trip Howard so many times in the past. The new Politically Correct Howard can't have that on air now.

    Right there is why geek time is shut down. Wiggy's new show is about the "interview". He can have his 3rd rate lover getting better guests to interview.
