    I imagine is enough people cancel their subscriptions or maybe complain to serious, he might notice. 2 or 3 days a week is a joke. If he at least had someone to do a live show on his off days, would be nice..........

    It would be nice, but I don't think it would make a bit of difference. Howard really can't accept his severe decline in social relevency, He will do his best to legally get paid what ever he signed for through 2015. AGT will fail, any other mainstream TV projects will fail--he will live in the bubble that he still can influence great amounts of people. He will still make the argument that he is owed more than he has already got. His show is pathetic now, Bob and Tom are funnier and have more original new stuff at this point.

    Difficult to do a boycott when the person you are boycotting doesnt give a rats ass.

    It's not all of Sirius that's bad - just the programming on Howard's channels and his lack of effort. Maybe an online petition to Sirius (if worded correctly) would get a response from them, similar to the one against Bank of America when they tried to enact service fees. If nothing else, it would be embarrassing to Howard if it was reported in the media.

    A helluva a lot of people did call in & cancel. After he said "I piss on my fans - call up & cancel"
    Sirius managed to keep many of those callers with free 6 month offers. And then they turned around & signed Howard for another 3 year contract!
    So no, it won't make any difference.

    I would guess that at least half of the fans that signed up for Sirius in 2006 have cancelled by now. It's too late to make a difference now, he is locked in and guaranteed an $80 million a year budget for the next 3 years plus 8 months. Sirius knows what's going on, they just want Howard because he is a name in radio, same as they have Oprah. If Sirius keeps him around for the next contract they would be fools. I bet they will just pay him $10 million a year to play his old tapes.

    What Howard doesn't realize by trying to piss Sirius off and by being cheap and not hiring a good comedy writer and a comedian for the Artie chair that he is doing himself great harm at all the loyal fans he has lost.

    Yeah, what dogstar said. And I DID call up and cancel, refusing their most generous $77 a year offer, to send Wiggy and Mel a small, pathetic but heartfelt lesson.

    the question should be 'is the boycott working'
    as in, 'is Howards boycott working'
    as in, 'the abortion of a show that howard is putting on is his boycott to Sirius'.

    Yeah its working, the show sucks.

    7 out of 10 people in here have cancelled already, just an estimate but probably pretty close.....howard don't care anyhoo, he gets paid regardless....AGT will be his downfall though, so enjoy the ride LOL

    The only thing that might get back the real Howard is Beth cheating and AGT failure
