    I new the show was over when they made zero attempt to replace Artie. They put Shuli in there for a
    few days. It was terrible.

    When Jackie and Stuttering John left they were promptly replaced.

    Any theories?

    Marbles, Howard knows that the gravy train is almost over and he wants to keep as much money as possible.

    Another theory is that he wants to make the show so horrible that when he does go somewhere else he can easily improve it, the flaw is that he has pissed off and on his loyal former fans and there is nothing he can do to win them back.

    Bringing in a new comic on 3rd mic would force Howard to listen to a 3rd mic and respond to the things that he/she said. They would have to establish a whole rhythm. That is hard. It's easier not to do that. So he did what was easiest.

    Also u need to factor in ego. He thinks he can still deliver entertaining radio with marathon interviews and joke bomb fillers

    Listen, the show has evolved.
    Look, it is what it is.
    In other words, are you the same as you were 20 years ago?
    What do you do for a living?

    we've discussed this ad nauseum and marbles is the reason.

    The simple truth is he doesn't care about doing a good show, he cares about his pile of money.

    Political correctness.
    Can't risk a third person saying something that may be offensive.
    He wants to be the next Barbara Walters. Middle America and Hollywood won't support him if he's still considered a "shock jock".

    The reason is he no longer had to. It's simple math. He was already at Sirius making a ridiculous amount of money. He didn't have to answer to anyone at this point. No general manager. No ratings book. No FCC. He realized it didn't matter if he put no effort in the show because he was getting that fat paycheck every week regardless. Why work when all he had to do was show up? Why pay another comedian when he could keep those extra marbles all to himself?

    Then they'd have not one, but two people trying to communicate with Robin in her apartment and pretend like she's in studio. Too hard to do.

    Money, not caring and Howard becoming all P.C. trying to fit into mainstream Hollywood. Moving away from what made him Rich and Popular throughout his career and turning into milk toast radio. He could not take a chance of some loose cannon sitting in the chair using the words faggot and retard. I thought for a minute Shuli (who could be put on a lease) would fill in, but at the end of the day Howard rather do it himself.
