    Perfect time to bring back Jackie and get rid of that terrible hack Benji.

    Jackie wants filthy dirty disgusting money as compensation. Can you believe that? Howard's loyalty should be enough pay for him.

    I think Gary, Fred and Robin don't want him back. Sad because the show would be better with him. Although PC Howard wouldn't read some of his lines. The show now is the radio version of The View.

    Jackie would have to change to fit into the new PC format. That won't work because Jackie is actually funny.
    The shows problem is that it is too much Howard. There no balance anymore and hasn't been since the A/J chair became empty. Adam Carolla has the same problem. Nothing wrong with Adam but too much of one very strong personality is exhausting to listen to for very long.
    Howard suffers from "empty chair syndrome."

    Probably because it's pretty clear Howie doesn't like him.

    If that happened, I might actually be tempted to resubscribe, but I'm sure even he would suck within the confines of the new PC format.

    Anyone that would fill that role, would have to settle for a combination of spots and green stamps as a form of payment.

    Why would Howard do anything differently...if sirius was dumb enough to pay him again with the "show" in its current state why would he actually try something new. Also obviously he wants to keep every penny he can.

    I would love to have Jackie back on but Howard knows and so do we all that within 6 months Jackie would be unhappy and making demands

    1. Jackie does not fit the "Hollywood Howie" image.
    2. Jackie wants $$$
    3. Robin Hates Jackie
    4. Howard isn't a big fan either
    5. Jackie officially burned the bridge appearing on podcasts and Opie and Joey

    What Gary, Fred and Robin want couldn't matter less to Howard. That scripted bit, when Jackie came in to ask for his old job back, was just to make Howard look good (which it failed to do).

    As @Fancy pants pointed out, Jackie is no longer a fit, because he's actually funny.

    Because Howard is an emotional cripple. He always feels that he has to get back at someone. He could easily bring him back but he feels that hes still teaching jackie a lesson.
