    Boy, that 30 MILLION SUBSCRIBERS!!!!!! didn't amount to much for Monday guest Louis CK.

    Louis C.K. says Horace And Pete is officially over

    "In news that won’t come as much of a surprise to those who watched the series’ brutal tenth episode, released two weeks ago today, Horace And Pete is over. Creator Louis C.K. made the end of his experiment in guerrilla, pay-per-episode TV official today, with an e-mail sent out to fans of the show saying, 'But yeah, obviously, That was it.'”

    Howard must know he has NO effect on media at this point. Does that make him sad?

    In the story in the daily news, it says sales of his show "exploded" after he went on jimmy Kimmel earlier in March. There was no mention of his sales after his Stern appearance. Just the fact that it was instantly cancelled.

    Howard doesn't have enough listeners to move the needle anymore. I'm sure the show sucked on its own.

    At least Howard can be happy that his email friend went millions of dollars into debt over this.

    The show cant be cancelled it was on LCKs website. Based on how depressing everyone said it was I'm speculating either Horace or Pete killed themselves at the end - thus OVER.

    Outside of stand up and writing for Conan I don't think Louis CK has ever had actual commercial success. His HBO show got canceled after one season, Louis on FX is on because it's cheap to produce and he partially finances it.

    Creator Louis C.K. made the end of his experiment in guerrilla, pay-per-episode TV official today,

    I think that Wiggy is even more sad than Louis C.K. that this didn't work.
    You know he's got some kind of plan to do something like this with some of his bullshit he's already got recorded.
    He's probably figuring that he's sitting on a goldmine with all of this awesome content he could sell like this.
    The problem that the Wig hasn't figured out yet is that people are not willing to pay to watch a 2 hour interview with Skryllix.

    Louis C. K. never was. He just happens to be the ricotta of commedians.

    What was that 30 Million subscribers bs about? 30 Million total since Sirius' inception, not counting the 25 Million who cancelled?
