    Anybody else find it odd that Howard mentioned during the Olivia Wilde interview that he hasn't seen Vinyl yet? With Olivia being a first time guest, you would think he could at least spend 2 hours and watch the show...especially given his light schedule. On Tuesday, Howard even mentioned watching Walking Dead and Bachelorette the previous night too. Maybe it's just something the best Interviewer on the planet doesn't need to do.

    Totally stupid. He could've pulled one show at random and at least watched Wilde's performance. That's totally fucked up.

    his interviews suck. the incessant amateur psychology. the bumbling through inaccurate notes the staff gives him about the guest's past. the projecting his miserable neurosis onto the guests. his not listening to the answers. and fucking blobb saying anything.

    Howard's interviews:
    1: How much money do you have?
    2: How big is your cock (for men), How much do you enjoy big cock and do you do anal(for women)
    3: Plugs for interviewee's project
    4: Coming here wasn't so bad, right?
    5: You've said it all

    Next interview ... rinse/repeat

    I think it's his way of acting better than his guests.

    It's a subtle put-down.

    The fukkin Bachelor is more important to this weirdo than his own guests!!!

    It's like when he mispronounces Angelina Jolie's name "Zzzohlay".

    Well, here's the flaw in your original thought: he feels as though he DOES do preparation...via the retards in the back office. They end up doing his "research" (and let's be honest - it's ALWAYS Wikipedia articles, nothing more...that's why the info is so bogus most of the time) and when they hand it off, they get a star for the day and then he feels ready to go. Then we get to listen to the onslaught of corrections these celebutards make on their own behalf because the shit wasn't correct even once.

    It's pathetic. It's Larry King syndrome. I always reference the 1998 interview King did with Eric Clapton. It had to be the easiest thing on the planet to do or so you'd think. "So, Eric...you were in Cream...it was a rock band in the late 60's..." It wasn't even THAT good. The factual data was SO tremendously fucked up that I had to keep watching. It was a total car wreck. It's so disrespectful to the guest. And Howard, who used to viciously goof on Larry (and just about everyone else that did this type of work due to his jealous tendencies), has turned into Larry.

    You have to wonder if one day Hamptons Howie is going to show up on CNN to do a 30 minute show and the young people that show won't even know who the fuck this bald loser with a huge nose is. One can only hope.

    Howard likes celebrity interviews because they're a free, easy way to eat up 25 to 40% of his broadcast time, and they can potentially lead to perks in his social life and profile. His interview style -- present a guest with a Wikipedia "fact," determine whether or not it's true, then take a stab at the person's mindset and motives in that situation as if it's a game where you get points for being insightful and profound -- always reveals how little he knows about the guest, and what his true interests are: feeling comfortable with his own vanity, and feeling even better about himself for being richer than they are.

    I just looked at your recent activity. Do you realize you've asked this question three times in various forms the past two days? I don't think you're paying attention to the answers you're given if you have to keep asking.

    Put a Stern Show tag on your post.
    I agree with you. If he does zero other prep, the least he can do is see the show/movie that they're plugging. It's disrespectful for starters...

    I forgot about that great moment courtesy of the Sein. To be fair, Larry was probably heading toward dementia already.

    Larry: "Don't most shows go down?"
    Jerry: "Most people do also."

    Great, great line. If only someone would stick it to the Wig like this.

    Even lazier is Robin. Every time Howard announces who the celebrity guest is that day in the morning Robin is always surprised. They work 3 days a week at most and Robin is so lazy she won't be bothered to find out who is on the show for the week. You know the show is booked weeks in advance and I am sure an email goes out giving a rundown for the upcoming week.

    If she wants to be that lazy and not know who is coming in fine. Where I get annoyed is when she won't shut the fuck up during the interview. If she is going to ask questions like Howard then she should be forced to do some research or know who is at least coming in that day.

    All anyone wants is to be entertained...right? This isn't anything approaching entertaining.
