    The whole just not addressing the Artie situation finally did it for me.

    We can look back and name many moments that could be considered jumping the shark, but Artie leaving and not being replaced will likely be what history defines as the jump. :dontknow:

    When, at sirius, he realized he no longer needed to get good ratings to get massive paychecks.

    I would say after he canned Jackie the Jokeman that was all she wrote. Artie was decent but the glory years were Jackie Martling.

    The point of no return, at least for me, was sometime during the buildup toward Richard's wedding.

    I really am a bad judge because I listened from 94-99. Then I joined the service and couldn't really find him. When I came back home in 03 I could just tell the show was poor and not the same.

    In hindsight, Howard had been transforming into his mother for years. Artie's presence distracted us from the cold, hard truth.

    Making Benji a writer because he will work for very little money. Benji is about as funny as cancer.

    Jackie and John and KC leaving. I think the shitty show we hear now proves that while Howard is the star, the other players are crucial.

    Agreed. Bubba's show was the best supplement to Howard's show
