No contest. Jackie of course. Next runner up is Diane Chambers leaving Cheers.
Oh cool. With this post I've become a "maverick".
Seems like Howard had already given up any pretense of integrity or dedication to putting out a good broadcast, the rest of his career is nothing more than a money grab and an attempt to prop up his equine partner.
Financially worse for Jackie but more embarrassing for former shock jock Howard Stern to sink to new depths by judging on AGT.
For the reputation with longtime fans, Howard.
We laugh at how Jackie allowed his ego to lead him to horrible business decisions
We laugh at how Howard allowed his delusions to lead him to become everthing he and his loyal fans mocked.
If he thought the marble distribution didn't represent his contribution to the show, then I admire Jackie for walking away. On a minuscule scale, if Riley Martin had any dignity he would have told Howie to piss off years ago, but didn't, so doesn't. That's the difference.
For what is a man, what has he got? If not himself, then he has naught. To say the things he truly feels; And not the words of one who kneels. The record shows he took the blows - And did it hiiiiis waaaaaaaaaaaaaay!
jackie fucked himself and became a free punching bag for howard until the day he dies
he fell off the planet. HS is not going to become a nobody.
Jackie's fans still love him.
Howie got paid.
i'd probably take the cash, too.
Poor Jackie, I wish he would grow a pair and write a tell all book. He would rake in the cash!
Maybe Jackie, because of the financial aspect. But Howard selling out is my big pick.
Jackie leaving the show was like Kurt Cobain leaving Nirvana
Jackie seems to genuinely enjoy his life. The only person blathering on and on for years about what a mistake he made was Howard--but actually there's not alot of evidence for that. Howard has always been notoriously cheap with the rest of the talent--he ran off Billy West, Jackie, Stuttering John, and at a minimum grossly underpaid Artie (< 1 Million per year, thereby basically forcing him on the road to make up the difference). Howard probably pays Fred less than a mill too--so maybe Jackie left while the getting was good. I don't know. But at least Jackie can still interact with regular people unlike Howie who acts like his shit doesn't stink, and from everything I've read about Jackie, he has plenty of money to last him the rest of his life.
Remember how Howard went on and on about how you should never take over a #1 show because it can only go down and then they'll blame you? AGT has been #1 every season its been on...
clearly it's jackie leaving.
AGT won't ruin howard for the rest of his life
Jackie has fans??
No, I'm seriously asking. I mean, people have argued that he made huge contributions to the earlier success of the show (an argument I've started to buy) but are there "fans" of either his hacky standup or his hacky pity-fuck radio show?
Both. He still does shows, and that radio show of his never has a shortage of callers.
Something tells me that Jackie will have the last laugh
And Howard will have the last marble.
