    You would figure "America's Judge," if not the "King of All Media." would be able to pull in real advertising dollars. :dontknow:

    He doesn't want to weigh down the show with a bunch of advertisements.

    Very true--if there was a hint of truth to Howard's Sirius ratings/listener claims, surely some mainstream advertisers would be on the show.

    Nothing--not even the car manufacturers that push the Sirius/XM option....

    Even back when he was doing an entertaining show, his advertising support was laughable . I remember the "highest rated show on E!" (maybe true) still able to attract little more than pathetic "Girls Gone Wild" spots.

    You're saying Sphincterine is not a major sponsor?

    The days of Snapple and Brother P-Touch type advertisers is long gone. Nobody pays to advertise on a show with no listeners.

    It's simple. They have no ratings, but Howard's so delusional and requires so much bunghole tonguing from his underlings that he believes he's still hot shit and demands ad rates that make no sense.

    The only people who pay for that are the business world's equivalent of the wack pack.

    Adobe should advertise on h100 to let everyone know that photoshop is a quality product in competent hands and that it is not their fault that Howard hasn't mastered the clone tool and Gaussian blur yet.

    Haven't heard a "Fresh Balls" ad in a while. First time I heard it, I thought it was a goof...

    Adobe is some of the worst software out there. If websites didn't use Flash it wouldn't even be on my system. They need to fade away like Realplayer.

    That's why he sounds like such a delusional ass when he attacks other shows and goofs on their advertisers, then he goes to commercial and we are treated to all the latest SCAM .com's and bullshit no one will ever call or buy.
