    It's a little of it all but they're just symptoms of the bigger issue that Howard got old. Most elderly people lose their edge and a reasonable sense of "coolness".

    I am enjoying listening to the old show (ie the baba booey one last night), but why the fuck is he off again this week?

    Work ethic cause it falls under to me getting better writers, doing real comedy bits, working a real schedule. Very hard to pick just one.

    I don't like how mean and bossy he is to staff and callers. Extremely arrogant. There was a time when he allowed himself to be made fun of. No more. What he says, goes. Every other talk show host is semi humble.

    Kissing ass and becoming PC are kind of the same thing.

    Not in the least. "Hungry for marbles" usually makes for better product than "Hoarding existing marbles and looking for more."

    One more for the list:

    - Lack of open door policy to the studio for staff and the comedy that brings.

    If you listen to old shows, there was a constant stream of people in and out of the studio which provided a ton of the funny content. Howard would just sit back with a glint in his eye and watch the fireworks unfold.

    Except that the former includes 'vacationing with B+-listers', and the latter includes 'don't make fun of B+-listers you once ridiculed.'
