    After listening to the last couple of weeks, it seems there has been a giant change in the show direction. Fewer interviews. More Sal and Richard and other back office staff. Exactly what weve been pointing out. Jan hein was good. ShulI was good. JD was good. More bits and just shooting the shit. He even put up some resistance to calling Wendy slow, and slipped in quite a few "retards".

    I don't want to get too optimistic because there were still some shitty, fast-forward worthy segments (Bruce Jenner call in, Chelsea Handler interview, etc) so maybe I'm so numb that even a little funny made me sit up and notice. But I gotta say, I found myself actually laughing once in a while, which is more than I can say for a long time.

    Those who have lost hope, check our the last couple of weeks. Believe it or not, Howard was not the "star".

    Crap, forgot to label the thread and it's too late to edit it so I guess I'm fucked.

    I'll bend over now.

    I think I'll report myself.

    JDini was so fucking funny. I've really enjoyed the past couple weeks as well.

    That would be cool if he got back to his roots in the last 5 years. By the way, this is the last 5 years for anyone wondering.

    That is where you lose me, because I know that part can't possibly be true.

    I know, but I don't get the ShulI hate. He was a great caller when he first appeared and I think he's a good contributor to the show. Not necessarily his stand up , but his early games and his deep interactions with the walking wounded know as the wack pack.

    Put it this way: I'll take ANYTHING besides just Howard and Robin

    Too late, most of his audience is long gone.

    They sure as hell aren't listening to me. I've been saying they should all jump off the Santa Monica Pier.

    A few others have said the same thing, that the show has been better over the past couple of weeks.

    Sirius knows exactly how many people listen to each channel and for how long.

    He knows damn fucking well that the show has been sucking dick, he just doesnt give a fuck.

    My theory is that Howard's ratings have slipped so much that he's now being "forced" to give a shit. Either because of specific stipulations in his contract or pressure from upper management.

    Regardless, I doubt very seriously that I would ever subscribe to Sirius again unless he did something truly sincere like bringing back Artie, Stuttering John, Jackie etc.

    The only thing that can fix Howard's show is to fire Howard.

    He's too far gone to be rescued.
