So "Mary Ann" called in and started up another Simon Cowell rant. Its funny Howard knows exactly what her call is about since they are screened etc but always acts surprised. She blast him always brings up the fact he had a affair with his friends wife. The best part is that Howard was clearly not renewed (fired) since he was a ratings abortion. This fact is only made more clear by the entire cast coming back except Howard. Its really got to grind his gears. Ironically he got to say goodbye but he never allows his staff that same courtesy.
