    Why are we still discussing Howard? He's done, finito. He's been done for years. Yet, so many of us continue to wait out these interminable vacations, weeks on end with no new content (for which many of us are paying), only to have him come back with shitty shows and shitty interviews with second-rate has beens, assholes and nobodies that no one except Howard is interested in hearing from.

    If Howard had just called it quits when his Sirius contract expired at the end of 2010, his legacy might have been cherished. Instead, he is running his reputation right into the ground by being on the air when its clear that he has nothing left. He's like Willie Mays stumbling around the outfield with the Mets in 1973, Mickey Mantle limping to first base with the Yankees in 1968 and a gray-haired Duke Snider playing with the Giants in 1965 - all once-great players who didn't know when to quit.

    I'm not waiting for ANYTHING. I stopped listening to the show years ago; kept up with HTV until it expired, and come here for a laugh when I can.

    I'm not so sure that Howard is interested in the guests. His main concern is getting out of the studio when he's in there. And not going in to the studio when he isn't in there. But for me it's kind of like the old Mystery Science Theater 3000. They had fun mocking cheesy sci-fi and monster films, I enjoy the humor on this board that does the same thing to THSS.

    I don't listen to his shit show. I listen to the Jackie era at home and at work I'll listen to compilations.
    The only thing I'm waiting for is karma to rain down on that motherfucker. I'll be watching with a smile on my face.

    I haven't listened in 5 years, but grateful for those who do because the downfall is entertaining and sometimes unbelievable. The non-Howard threads here are also entertaining.

    The only thing I am waiting for is for his career to totally go into the toilet and him being so desperate to stay in the public eye that he starts to take whatever shit gigs he can get like co-hosting the Kitten Bowl with Beth.

    Haven't listened to 1 second of the show in over 3 years. I think most here don't listen.

    I listen all the time. I think the show is great. Not like it used to be, but still fun.

    I've come to terms that it will never be like it was......oh well, what can you do I guess. This week on O&A has been some of the best radio I've heard in a very very long time, so that pretty much seals the deal for me.

    Exactly. Howard stern is still good for many laughs. All unintentional, and all here.
