    Lately the commercials on Sirius (all channels not just Howard) have been obnoxious and driving me crazy. Zyppah, fast cash/loan commercials, get out of debt commercials, etc. are 90% of the ad space these days. Is this all you get when you don't have ratings or a local audience?

    I don't mind the low rent commercials so much, but can you at least get some variety?

    Same 5 commercials for 6 months at a time. Can we not get a couple more sponsors?

    It's the same on any channels with commercials.

    Well, for you sirius people, I can tell you that testicle radio has not gotten any better. The latest wonderful commercial starts out with "Have you talked with your doctor about your poop?"

    The TV commercials for Sirius are rather obnoxious lately, the one with the Asian woman circling her cul-de-sac because she can't stop laughing along with hilarious Howie is particularly annoying.

    I knew I wasn't the only person who saw that! I can't find it anywhere online to upload it to this site.

    On the spots for My Rich Uncle (something like that), the disclaimer at the end says this media outlet has been paid less than $2000 to run this ad. I wonder how much less than $2000?

    Speaking of commercials, just saw an ad for AGT, it was all Simon. 100% Simon. No other judges in the commercial.

    Guess they think he moves the needle.

    That's what I thought.

    Not cool at all. I signed a lifetime contract, and here they are 10 years later, breaking it themselves. I paid for COMMERCIAL FREE music channels. I knew Howard was going to have commercials before the show even started. He made that very clear when he was still on FM.

    I always say, if you want to know how successful a company is, look at their advertisers.

    As I'm sure most of you know, Howard's advertisers are a fucking joke. Bullshit products and services. No real brand names to speak of.

    He's hit the bottom of the advertisers barrel since getting to Sirius.

    I really WISH we could know how many listeners he actually has at this point. It's got to be a low number by now.

    The hacking and phony female poster scandals didn't drive them out of business?
