    I love how every time Howard goes to the "phones" it is the same 4 people sucking his toe jam over the phone telling him how awesome he is. They have many screnners before someone gets trough. You listen back to show from the day, callers none stop adding to the show now it is a few people the same people every day telling Howard how awesome he is.. :facepalm:

    He is afraid someone will goof on Beth and he knows damn well it's impossible to defend her.
    She turned him into a joke and he is not capable of defending himself against the truth

    Screeners (ie Will) are not the reason that the callers suck.

    They suck because Howard chooses to only pick up on the same ass kissers.

    That's just part of it.

    It's been a terrible downward spiral towards "mundaneness".

    I had an interesting talk with someone special about this topic just the other day.
    ...tracking time..and tracking down certain specific moments..in time.


    If only..what could be..was.

    You mean "where ARE the REAL callers???"
    well...since Howard has become a "clock watcher" making sure the show is ON SCHEDULE ...ending at 10am!
    a RUSHED show!
    NO MORE GAMES....
    NO REAL callers....just "set up" Ringers and the regular's ETM...MFB...BoBo...all gushing with excitement over America's Got Talent! :rolleye: Gotta get those plugs in for AGT!! $$$$$$$$$ !!!!
    He has just 3 (rushed) days to PROMOTE AGT...HowardTV..and of course The Wrap Up SHow :facepalm:

    IF we ever hear an amazing interview or another Brilliant LIVE GaGa appearance...we should all be grateful :rolleye:

    anyway...I USED to call the show alot....about 3yrs ago....when JD WAS interesting AND Funny...during the Hawaiian Goofing days...
    I called into the WUS too.....
    My Calls were always picked up (by Will) asap ....the show was 5hours ....4 days! and Howard picked up on ALOT OF TRUE FANS!! I goofed on JD and his visiting Hawaii warning him about the Volcano's etc...and I wrote a song parody for JD.."KaliKiMaka" !
    .....Robin "got it" when I warned JD that if he steps foot in Hawaii he needs to BEWARE! That call lasted a long time!

    This year (and last) on Sirius?? Howard is rushed...a "clock watcher" to get those COMMERCIALS AND LIVE PLUGS IN!!
    He's not even into his own show :facepalm:
    is he??

    So yes....it's the same "set up" callers....day after day after day..

    I predict tomorrow's callers will be 99.9 % AMERICA'S GOT TALENT!! 6:08 "BoBo you're on the air" :rolleye:
    OR a recap of 60 minutes....and a review of the Avenger's !!

    the show is soooooooo predictable....so are the callers....

    ps...IF u want to get a REAL call in u have to "fib" to Will or Steve the Intern....say u want to ask a question about AGT or HowardTV!! haha
    THEN let Howard HAVE IT t like that caller did before vacation week!

    "ENUFF with AGT !!!! ...and plugging HowardTV....AND THE WRAP UP SHOW! PLEASE !!! STOP THE TORTURE!!

    thank you

    peace & love

    They call a special number - that is how they get through so quickly. And the real callers on the 1-800 number, Will leaves them on hold & Howard never picks up on them.

    You want someone to call howard with an honest opinion of the show? Not likely but if by some chance one does you're guaranteed to have howard slam the caller and then scream `get off my phone' , so fucking predictable. The show might actually be interesting if he took one of those calls and defended himself, I'm not counting on it.

    "Robin, we've got so much to get to. I never seem to get to all things I want to. Look at this list of all the things we need to get to. It's three pages long!...Bobo you're on air."

    The calls are a bit.

    There's a script in front of Howie for anytime a negative caller sneeks through and challenges him.

    Example Caller: "Howard, no one wants to hear you discuss AGT. You're boring the audience with the same stuff every day."
    Howard: "wh wh wh wh..what is this guy saying Robin? I can't understand..."
    Robin: "He's saying you talk too much about America's Got Talent."
    Howard: (grow increasingly flustered) "Look I talk about my life....wh wh wh...what is this? If you don't like it, cancel! What do I care! GET OFF MY PHONE!!!"
    (Hang up on caller)
    Howard: "What do people want Robin? I've always talked about my life! If they don't like it they can cancel....fucking assholes....Bobo you're on the air."

    Did you guys catch the depressed guy that called in about a week ago whose wife has breast cancer and lupus? That same week they played a show on the shuffle from a few years ago that had a caller who was depressed because his wife had breast cancer and lupus. It had to be the same guy. I just thought it was weird repeat type of caller.

    All of the "real" callers are also the only "real" fans left listening. The rest of us only listen to mock him and most like myself enjoy making a game of "how long will i listen until i change the channel".
