I don't even know half the people on that list and are people really influenced by actors?

Nah it'll be better when Howard sees Jay is on the list, and how he picks apart everyone on the list and why they shouldn't be on the list..... Ahhh Monday, can't wait....

He's an obnoxious blowhard, but when he has media buzz over wanting to debate Obama and speaks at Republican party events, he most certainly has influence.

Think about it though... if Howard went on air daily and INTENTIONALLY said idiotic, inflammatory comments just to get into the news, he could do the same thing Limbaugh does.

These lists are designed to drive controversy and readership. Judging by the response here, Time did its job well.

Considering I wasn't interested enough to read anything more than this thread, maybe not so well...

Howard can yell and scream about it, but last year wasn't exactly a banner year for him or the show. When he debuted, sure, but lately Satrad is just struggling to survive and not exactly showing a lot to attract new listeners or even keep the old (same with Howard, who is still bitching about doing Letterman and seems to be running out his contract). I mean, shit Sirius, if you change the PDT twice a year, how about doing it sometime soon? Several of the channels are still mismarked and categorized. Frankly the only good promotion for Satrad was a number one pop song (which edits out the mention in the clean/radio version....including the one played by SiriusXM!)

I would say that 90% of those people I've never heard of, so much for being influential.:rolleyes:
Or you're just not a well-read worldly kind of guy.

No, it must be Time! If you haven't heard of them, they must not be influential!

Sirius and XM have had several commercials over the past few years. Howard also went on several of the late night shows, including the Letterman appearance which was re-aired.

They just haven't done anything in a while.
