There were a couple of shows that I'd flip to when I occasionally still turned on my radio and Howard was boring (which was every time I turned on the radio). Rosie's sidekick, Janette Barber got fired weeks ago, so that was out. I turned on "Broadminded" yesterday, a yappy chick program that was tolerable because they had a lot of energy, decent topics, interesting guests and they obviously give a damn about their show. Well, they were saying good-bye because the show got canned and they all got fired.
They'd been there for 7 1/2 years. They had decent ratings (according to them). I didn't hear the reason for the firing, but another one bites the dust. It made me particularly angry because I changed over to their show when Howard was yammering like an old grandpa, leaving dead air, sniffling like he had a head full of snot and just generally being boring, dull and lazy. But lets keep overpaying him and toss the younger and more enthusiastic hosts to the curb.
