    Howard would like everyone to think that he remained Letterman's go to guy for ratings right up to the end, we all know that isn't true but putting the last three appearances together really paints a picture of decline.

    His third to last appearance was easily beaten in the ratings by a Leno re-run and Nightline

    His penultimate appearance was bumped to Friday when Jennifer Lawrence became available and again lost to Leno.

    His final appearance even with the legendary Don Rickles (who unfortunately couldn't get in a word over Wiggy's incessant babbling) as a second guest was the lowest rated show of Letterman's final two weeks and the lowest rated Monday of Letterman's final month.

    Go to man, Howard was left off the final show as well, even though Hampton's pals Seinfeld, Baldwin and Barbara Walters were all there. Spin that Booey and Hein.

    Wiggy is a slow build (up of wig glue).

    When they were discussing guests who had many appearances on Letterman, Howard named a few who hadn't been on as much recently and claimed it was because Dave knew they weren't relevant anymore and didn't generate much interest. He quickly added that the only reason he wasn't on as frequently was because HE decided to cut back and they were always calling to invite him. Sure Howard, just like the decision to end HowardTV was yours and there were many others clamoring for a chance to air it.

    Howard also said that HTV would be back in some form by January 2014 and they were battling over the video rights for the Birthday Bash.....how'd that work out for him.
