    Each show concept is even worse than the next.

    Programming the audience. Getting them ready for 2 days a week, then 1, then none.

    Maybe Wiggy will retain control of his channels after hes gone?

    My guess is that 101's ratings were way down. Howard gets 60% of the ad revenue on his channels: low ratings = lower ad rates = less marbles for Howie = programming changes

    This will be his final marble grab. I hope his new boss doesn't fall for it.

    Sabean is trying everything he can to keep his job. At this point they are just throwing shit at the wall to see what sticks but their shit is so bad the wall is bouncing it back.

    This. Gotta keep everyone employed, working and qualifying for benefits since Howard can barely work 3 days a week, which makes it funnier when Howard's bashing on his office staff for doing other things/other shows instead of his show.

    You've gotta have stuff to build around the massive success of the Abe Kanan show.

    I think he finally realized that most of his former fans got tired of his shit and moved on and hate him. It's over and he knows it. There is no recovery from this fail he has already exposed who he is.

    There really isn't much new programming, they're just moving things around to make it look like they're doing something. Seems like an attempt to impress John Malone or to win fan support in preparation for a future contract battle with Sirius or a move to a new platform. Regardless, it's not going to work. The new shows suck and Howard's promises have zero credibility. Is it really that difficult to figure out how to improve the channels? Get some hosts and sidekicks who are FUNNY and PROFESSIONAL. Of course, that would require money and effort so it will never happen. They'll just keep delivering the same shit we've been getting for 7 years and claim it's a Revolution.

    He is preparing for the time when he is off the air completely. His next contract will be for replays and shitty spin-off shows.

    Throwing shit at the walls is one thing, giving us Dr. Harry Fisch and Shuli is another. What utter shit. I think I'm going to scream...

    Malone have scared Howard.

    Doesn't Howard call him Adolf Eichamann?
    Maybe Howard really believes that Malone will put Howard into the oven?

    Howard have a bit over 2 more years to build a new audience or his carrier is over. (unless some tribesmen take care of Howard. They have horns!)
