I never thought the show was side splitting funny. it had moments here and there, especially before jacky left, but I never thought of it as a straight comedy show. I can remember only a few times that it really made me laugh out loud uncontrollably. the old show was just extremely engrossing and mildly humorous. I'm contrast, go online and listen to some pre 2006 Phil hendrie. that's real radio comedy.
I think the real problem is that Howard's edge is gone.
he's so douchey now and so p.c. that its sickening.
