    I see countless bashing of Howard and his minions but Fred for some reason seems to be immune from the shit storm? I like Fred and was just wondering why? Is it because he keeps his mouth shut? Is it because he doesn't do bullshit like the wrap up show, ect? Is it because he has a nice wife and family and doesn't whore them out for more media attention and money?

    Also what are some other people that you don't hate from the show?
    My vote goes to Mr. Daniel Carver, one of my faaaavorites.
    Out of the show though, besides Fred, I can't think of any of the underlings who aren't wig-sucking loser assholes...

    Actually I do like J.D. but he seems to have moments when he is just a douche-bag. I actually feel like Ronnie is pretty cool too, like someone who is just a victim of Howard's jealousy and show. His angry character schtick was annoying but he was always good for a laugh.

    Maybe I'm just high and being nice... The Fred acceptance is really curious to me though.

    Fred has always been weird in an unknown honest kind of way -- so that makes him the normal one on that show these days.

    Plus Gunky is probably truly scared of him.

    When i quit listening, I despised fred just as much as any other part of the show. His horrible fake laugh drove me nuts. But his most annoiying mannerism in my opinion was when someone (usually sal or richard) would say something that the new evolved show found offensive and Fred would say in the totally confused tone, "Huh?!"

    Most of the times it was ajoke he would have made in the shows hayday. He is just as fake as the rest of the show, and when i stopped listening, just as lazy as well. Oh, and just for the record i thought his parodies were shit. "The Sound of Kinneson" - I rest my case.

    Nobody fucks with Fred because he's not a primadonna. Sure, he's a yes man to Howard, but he does it quietly.

    That. I just stopped listening when the show became unbearably unfunny. No harm, no foul, found other stuff to listen to. Frederic used to seem talented and interesting, but I don't care any longer.

    Didn't Fred refuse to indulge in doing jam session or was it playing in a band with Howard. Even though he never said it, he knew Howard would lose interest in it like with all his other obsessions (biking,grilling,photography,chess...etc).

    I gotta like him for doing that.

    No no no...I DO!! I hate him lots, almost as much as @stuttering john melendez does. If I were CEO/CFO of Sirius-XM - one of my very first actions would be to immediately fire Fred and take his seven figures and hire a real host for afternoon drive like Adam Carolla was supposed to be.

    Only reason he's still there is because he has no options and none of his "skills" remotely translate to anything outside the Plug-verse. His best talent is to tea-bag Wigward's almonds with fake laugh and fake dedication because he has zero prospects.

    Fred has the unaccountability of like that mumbling dude who keeps to himself we all know at our work-place that doesn't do shit. Creepy as fuck in his cubicle or room or office while never getting called out for doing absolutely nothing.
