    People flew in from CA. He would have loved it. Best thing ever. Try it out for a few weeks, they said. You would have loved it, Robin.

    But he turned it down. Can't talk about it. That would be unprofessional. Like an actor who won't talk about films they weren't in.

    Was it a game show? Porky's remake? A villain on another superhero show? I'd like to know.

    It's all a made up story to make himself appear more marketable.

    Fake story Mike.

    It violates the "no marbles left behind" doctrine.

    He got an offer for Optimum online triple play but turned it down. That's the closest thing to a tv offer he's gotten in years.

    Probably Netflix deal similar to what Chelsea Handler has now.


    There were rumors that Buchwald was negotiating with Netflix whose CEO is a huge Stern fan. Just like AGT Howard is lying again because the board at Netflix probably ended the negotiations after seeing the nonexistent return they are getting from paying Chelsea Handler $10 million per year to do nothing

    Of course that's real, He crushed it on AGT then left on his own terms. Also, he has 30 million loyal fans that he brings to the table. And he loved the Idea but he said no to himself because the meeting took place in front of a mirror. Then Mirror howard flew back to CA. Hiyo!

    Howard wants back on tv so fucking bad but he's getting either no offers or offers without enough $.

    Buchwald won't let his client accept less than $15 million per year but after AGT tanked nobody is paying that.

    I think it was a infomercial for ugly-B-gone. They wanted howard to do the "before" character.

    So Howard constantly gets offered these dream jobs that he really would love to do, but turns them down. Who believes this bullshit anymore? Howard did AGT for four years. He isn't turning down dream jobs.

    Also, what's with this bullshit about being too professional not to talk about the job. Howard loves to talk about gigs he "turns down" all the time.

    I am sure Howard is pitched a lot of gigs. He still has some name value that a TV idea or movie with no name power going for it might take a shot at getting Howard to do it. I bet most celebrities get these pitches. Now to believe he is getting a real job offer after four years of declining ratings on AGT, that is ridiculous. And in a few months, if the ratings on AGT goes up, he isn't even going to get the quality of offers he is getting now. What are probably shitty offers.

    Simon is all over AGT. I cant wait for ratings to sky rocket this season and have howard somehow knock it.
