    What is the most disappointing thing about Wig and his show since the downfall began? I'll put the top answers into a poll.

    For me, it was the move away from LOL Humor: losing Billy, Jackie (to an extent), no more Gilbert.

    The stark lack of wit in the room when they decided they did NOT have to fill the "Jackie/Artie chair" is what finally did it for me. The other reasons are all just icing.

    Main thing is political correctness. Constant fake laughing. Howard deciding he's a living legend. No Artie and not having Artie back in as a guest. No stuttering John also not having him back as a guest. The Beth years. Howard pretending he's not wealthy. The extra long celebrity interviews that lead to absolutely nothing.

    This... I liked the days where there were lots of voices and back office characters around.

    There's only so much of Wiggy's voice ALONE pontificating and celebrity ass kissing that I can stand.

    IMO it goes much deeper than that. even if billy, jackie, and gilbert were on the show full time, they wouldnt be allowed to be edgy or funny

    Fred basically doing nothing . whether he was told to lay off the sound clips or not it added a lot to the show. especially Jackie's maniacal laugh when robin read a story about some baby being decapitated.

    The show has become an interview show like the View. The interviews are 1 and 1/2 hours long. Howard is not the best interviewer.

    This - from complaining about the FCC to inventing the term conqueror on his uncensored radio show. Howard also went from having Dee Snider as his celeb friend to vacationing in Cabo with Aniston and Clooney.

    the worst thing he did was the format change, it's now basically a celebrity interview show and not A list celebrity's or very good interviews, who cares how big andy cohen's cock is? the show has turned into a Imus clone!
