    Obviously, Howard is not pleased with "Scary Spice" being the new judge on AGT. He can't slam her, so instead, he takes planted callers that say what a shitty choice she is. Then he half-heartedly defends her. Same tactic he is taking with Jimmy Kimmel now with callers complaining that he rips Howard off. Quit being such a pussy Howard and speak up for yourself!

    Oh man, that means AGT could actually really be entertaining.

    I'm glad the NBC brass realized that things were too chummy last season.

    Remember what the ancient philosopher Greedius Heebius said:

    A man with an insincere hairstyle cannot be counted on for the truth.......

    He doesn't plant them... he sees the callers and one liner on screen about what they want to talk about and if they want to trash someone he hates, he puts them on. And ignores people that want to talk about shit he doesn't.

    That is probably true in this case. But for other things where they can't get real callers to call in (like how great HowardTV is), they have interns call in.

    I agree....I mean Scary Spice and friends only sold 20+ million albums and is the best girl group of all time.

    Mark Harris squealed to the press that Howard had people from the office calling in with fake "real" calls. So this isn't the first time this has been brought up.

    Chris Rock has always been very observant when it comes to Howard's passive aggressiveness.

    So what is the deal, does Beth not like Scary Spice either? Another Amanda Peet situation?

    Bravo!!

    They turned down his choice (probably Joan Rivers) and so he does this shit. He is pissed at Kimmel and I predict that he will feud with him as Kimmel becomes more popular.

    Yup, he chooses from what's on his computer who he's gonna let on the air. Once in a while a caller lies to the phone screener and gives a false premise as to why he's calling. Then if we're lucky Howard puts that caller on the air, and the caller talks about what he really called about and disses him.
