    Howard was fan-freakin'-tastic on Letterman, as he always is.

    Very engaging, very funny. Not awkward at all.

    He was absolutely genuine.

    (Yes, I know that's that's a minority opinion on this board.)

    But the thing is, Howard on other shows -- Conan, Fallon, Kimmel -- comes across as a freakin' douchebag.

    I'm hoping we'll see the Letterman Stern on AGT.

    But I fear we're going to see the annoying douchebag Stern.

    What came across was that Howard and Dave really do like each other and that's what was fun about it. Most of the time Dave just looks bored and annoyed with his guests, not the case tonight...jolly good show.

    Actually, I think Dave has been genuinely interested in his guests the past few years.

    Throughout the 2000s, he seemed very miserable and bored.

    But around the fall of 2009, around the time of his affair scandal, Dave seemed to be rejuvenated.

    And the result is he has obscure actors or trashy reality stars like Snooki, and he actually has fun with them (while somebody like Conan will sneer at having to interview the Kardashians, Dave enjoys it).

    Big ups to Letterman for letting him have half the show but did Howard have to talk about Beth? ok ok we get it it, her modeling days are long gone so he has to get her work by always bringing her up but now he's just sounding like a pussy whipped cunt.

    Sure, valid point. When he has those "reality" TV stars, he's having a laugh at their expense which they're oblivious to most of the time which makes for fun television. I don't catch the show every night but awhile back Dave seemed miserable, tonights show was great with Dave mixing it up with Howie busting Leno's balls.

    For at least the last 7 years or more, Howard is the only non-musical guest when he appears on Letterman.

    I missed it, but really? He had to bring up his horse wife again?? He is just shoving that heartless, dog abusing, gold digging cunt down everyone’s throat. He really does deserve the name the castrated one. He is worse than that nappy headed hoe Imus now. Howard really angers me now, Mr. Rich Guy and his pet Horse Face.

    It was all right, nothing more, nothing less. Immediately I realized that a major transition had taken place in his Letterman appearances--he's no longer "taking over" the show and "interviewing Letterman" like he used to. I felt Dave brought up a lot of stuff that Stern seemed somewhat blindsided by, whereas usually Howch is exclusively on the attack and hardly lets Dave get a word in edge wise.

    They posted part of it in the viewing thread but it will be on Letterman's website soon if not already I'm sure.

    I thought it was a good appearance, but I also thought there were just two segments.

    I was wondering what everyone was talking about when they said he showed Ditzo's pictures.

    Sigh... The first two segments were enjoyable, anyhow.

    he came out looking like frankenstein in a wig to be honest, that suit just isn't cutting it, and so much for giving it to Dave about the interns I guess. Dave came off really funny though, he's a natural.

    I thought it was good... I particularly noticed how he said "I'm all about honesty in broadcasting, but I'm a big phony" lol.

    His clothing/wig choices were terrible, but otherwise it was a good show.

    I was entertained but thought Howard was a bit blustery. He did not look well with those strange facial expressions brought on by his new teeth or implant. I did note two things though..

    1. Everytime Howard is on Dave has to touch his hair, as if to discover if it is wig or not. At the end of the show Dave is feeling up the back of Howard's head as they hug.

    2. Paul must have been mean to Beth or hit on Beth when when she was a 'regular' because Howard always goes after him, but it seems to be genuine animosity. Paul was taken aback the last time Howard was on by the suddeness of the attack.
