It's almost like he's against it. He could even use a current employee to save money. Sal, Shuli, anybody. They can even get a hungry no name comedian to sit in each week and pay with plugs. The show lacks the edge it once had. Howard has gotten soft, they don't want Artie back, they don't want Jackie back. The show has become 2 out of touch rich people talking about how great they are. I wish there was a way to make some noise and let Howard know that the fans really want someone in the chair.
