    From the day George first told Howie that he and Brad invested their own dough in this play, Howie goofed on them. He said they were throwing their money away. Unlike the Vinnie Favale musical, this one made it all the way to Broadway, and seems to be doing OK. Decent reviews and ticket sales so far.

    "It was my tough love that made George's play a success. He doesn't owe me anything, Robin. I'm just glad I could do it for him."

    What are the economics of Broadway shows? How long do they generally have to run to turn a profit? Seems like you'd have millions in costs to get one ready for broadway.

    Howard has never been able to put his own money on anything. Including himself. He has always expected others to put up the money, and he still expects the rewards.

    A $400 million loan from John Malone saved Sirius. And he parlayed that into ownership of the company. And Howard is jealous.

    Reviews looked mixed to me. George is a well-liked guy with a large fan base. Hopefully that helps the box- office.

    Why are we surprised?

    Howard cannot stand it when anyone he knows (who he thinks owes their success to him) makes good. You would think George would be an exception but in Wiggy's mind, George was a has been until he had him on the show.

    Anyone who dared to want success, he killed it. He hated the Block Party, he would have never let SJ go to Leno, he would not stand with Jackie and he used Artie knowing the man was a basket case. He is a sick motherfucker who has been in therapy for half his life and why? Because black people beat him up? No, he's a vile, despicable human being and he was funny when we was fighting it. Now that he's given up, he just another self-hating asshole who wants to be high by making everyone else low.

    I hope George's play makes $$$ gets nominated, wins and makes more money. You watch slowly he will be fazed out of the show and then Howard will have some bullshit ass Phantom Feud with him, like Dee, Gilbert and the rest.

    Sirius might have been Malone's best investment ever - valued at $12+ billion now.

    Wigward could have done this himself and owned the company becoming a multi-billionaire!

    But he was too afraid and more interested in suing them. What a maroon.

    I'm glad for George but I think he's loaded even if this thing went bust, he owns a bank or something

    I just got into this show on Starz called, "Party Down."

    George shows up in an episode playing himself, being
    annoyed by a Star Trek nerd at a party...
