    All the fake laughter at the end of the show? Is he pulling a "Jackie" and laughing at his own jokes? Does he even "write" in that capacity?
    I'll await your musings.:hat:

    He's keeping up appearances.

    He attached himself to the Good Ship Howard and doesn't want to be a "problem."

    For a guy so smart, his sole responsibility seems to be playing the "crow" sound effect whenever Marianne calls in.

    Knowing esoteric and trivial facts is not what I would call being "smart".

    Maybe Fred's laying the fake laugh on more now because he realizes that the end is near, and he's going to have to get another job.

    I"m glad to see people finally giving Fred shit on this board! He does absoultely nothing except put the show in and out of commercials. and picks some overplayed classic rock song to play when they get back. Fred is a very large part of why the show is as terrible as it has been for the past 5 years.

    I pretty much agree with the above.
    I don't think Fred's happy with the direction the show has taken and his heart just isn't in it anymore. So he'll give the fake laughs, the late sound drops, and will continue to either ride out his contract to the end or wait until Howard dies from anal hemorrhaging from a remnant probing accident, whichever comes first.

    Fred was laughing too hard during the Obama interview. He was the only one that laughed at that Palau joke so I'm guessing he wrote it. Even Robin & Howard were quiet as Fred yucked it up.

    Fred is up to the same sycophantic worship in the old shows, but it's in the form of that annoying, incessant clapping. He has always acted like a lap-dog that way. I'm glad I found this board because it's nice to know other people notice the same crap as I do.

    What an asshole Fred is for lobbying to have Benjy fired. He's so lame.

    Well Benjy, why don't you do something crazy on the show, like spilling some coffee into howard's wig

    It's too bad Fred lost his backbone. He used to express his opinions, now he's joined Robin as Howard's echo. I especially hate it when someone makes a negative comment about the show or Howard and Fred chimes in with his feeble "Whaaaaat?", as if what the person is saying is so ridiculous he can't comprehend it. You know damn well he knows most of the criticisms are true but he doesn't have the balls to admit it.
