The show started with Howard bitching about his equipment and playing "baba booeys" at the U.S. Open. Two tired repetitive bits that set the tone for the show. Howard hasn't smoked since college and is against smoking, there's a revelation. Brian Williams deserves a second chance, another shocker, a serial liar defending a serial liar. Howard saw Emily on Father's Day but didn't bother to visit his dad because of traffic, he did send him a gift, I'm sure his dad was touched by the fact that his near billionaire son had an assistant send him a gift. Howard then did a long promo for an embedded with Sour Shoes special, them moved on to filler, what annoys the staff's kids, an AGT commercial and fake Chalie Sheen, Howard mentioned going to his Florida place recently (who took care of Beth's purpose during that time) and Fred said he returns from the Hampton's via bus. Planted calls next, one guy opened the door for on air contract negotiations, Howard has so many offers he doesn't know what to do. Another caller opened the door to drag Letterman through the mud some more and discuss painting and drinking. Howard wouldn't do shots with their dinner guests last week. Howard discussed clips of Underdog Lady and Crazy Alice rather than having them on air and Marianne from Brooklyn brought up cats for Howard to do a Beth/cat segment. On to over an hour with Seth McFarlane. AGAIN. They finished up with endless Jeff the Drunk and his lump bullshit, live reads and old news stories from the gargantuan gunt.
