    I know he loves $$$ but didn't he at one time say he loved his fans too? I miss the old days. Channel 9 shows were awesome too. A man can wish, no?

    He obviously never was, because he tries with those stupid imitations of his parents. He was only funny when Jackie or Fred wrote for him, or when he had a funny person to play off of like Artie and you didn't notice how unfunny Howard was.

    I don't know how "funny" he actually was, but he used to create some very funny, very compelling radio. The best I've ever heard.:rip:

    I agree to a point. His parents impressions were funny for a bit but then he killed into the ground. I still love when he talks shit about Jackie and gets riled up. I was never a huge fan of Artie. I liked it when he left. Maybe because I liked it the way it use to be. I like when the show has no real star guests and they just shoot the breeze. I haven't listen in a while but I'm gonna try to see if I'm missing anything. Howard changed when he got divorced and started dating that horse toothed bitch. Hamptons became his obsession. Sad how our King fell. :(

    Agree 100%. There will never be another one like him. Maybe he just needs to run replays of the old days non stop.

    There are no "real" moments any more. The closest we get are the KOAB call about "the photo" or Robin laughs at him for having a personal weatherman.

    Today's rant about the lawsuit was just more posturing for round 2. Ponderous, man. Fucking ponderous.

    I think he would probably edit the shit out of them, and take away allot of the stuff that made them so good. Don't want to offend the Hampanzi elite.

    It probably wasn't intentional, but I thought it was pretty hilarious listening to him rant like a delusional lunatic this morning. His lawsuit getting tossed made him look like a fool and his ranting only makes it more absurd

    No

    maybe at times he may make Gary repeat or tear into Benji once the AGT ratings crumble after the 3rd week.

    I can foresee about 5 possibilities for at least a temporary return to funny

    1) Beth Divorce
    2) Beth Tell All Book
    3) Beth raids bank accounts
    4) Pictures of Howard and Ralph naked together finally surface
    5) Any time he says I'm the most honest person, i work hard, I deserve more money
