    The bullshit meter was off the charts today. Howard sure had to scramble to defend Brad Grey and make excuses for Letterman calling him a "weasel". He claimed Dave was just making a point that anyone in a corporate management position has to be a weasel, not Brad Grey personally. He also claimed he wasn't bumped from the Wednesday show, although the explanation he gave about switching places with Jennifer Lawrence was identical to the one that caused Gary to say "You were bumped". As expected he also slammed her movie and pretended his fans were confused about which night he was going to be on, which was clearly meant to explain losing to Leno in the ratings.

    Did he explain why Letterman called him a "suck-up" not once, but twice?

    "Nobody wants me to have friends!" :bigcry:

    I love that Robin didn't even watch it. I wonder why they didn't play clips from the Best Appearance Ever?

    :jj: just listened to him denying he got bumped and then slam the hunger games movies. Got a good chuckle out of that one. Worth the rewind.

    Your priorities change after staring death in the face.

    You stop worrying about the bullshit like watching your scarecrow looking Pelican-boss make a fool of himself on national tv again.

    In fairness to her, if you were dying of cancer and probably only had 6-12 months left, would you waste 22 minutes on that?

    So we are to believe that Howard and Dave had an emotional heart to heart after the show?
    They wept and held hands while Stern explained to Letterman how amazing Brad is....:jj:

    Did Robin say Hunger Games was a horrible movie that no one went to see?
    :facepalm:

    Howard went right down the check list of Shed bashing of his Letterman debacle.
    Howard wanted to be the dude during the dance but Dave out duded him?

    Can someone please explain to me what exactly you mean by he was bumped? Apparently I'm as dumb as I look.

    "Robin, Friday nights are the most watched nights of the week. That is why they moved me. It is like in football and they put their best hitter to bat last in the rotation or bat clean up. Because he is most likely to shoot a three point shot at the most critical moment. I am Dave's ace."

    Howard was originally supposed to be on Wednesday night but they "bumped" him to Friday and gave Jennifer Lawrence the Wednesday slot instead. Friday is the worst night for ratings, it deprived Howard of the chance to promote his NSAL event in advance, and it's clear the people at Letterman considered Jennifer Lawrence to be a more important guest than Howard.

    A better guest who had their appearance featured everywhere in the press the next day.

    Wiggy countered with a gay dance and noone noticed.

    Jennifer Lawrence is god damn untouchable right now...so I knew they would attack the movie franchise, and sure enough fucking Robin began babbling about how the movie was horrible.

    I also feel the need to add that Howard's dancing with Letterman was a poor attempt to 'have a moment' with Dave like Lawrence did when they cuddled under a blanket together.
