    Today at 10:25 AM a caller from Austin, TX named Dominick called in (allegedly) and basically said he couldn't wait until Howard came down for his AGT taping. He went on to ask if Howard would be there for all the tapings, etc. etc. He had a fairly lousy connection but it was clear enough and Howard politely spoke with him for about 2 minutes before thanking him for the call and then hanging up. At that point he said to Robin something like, "that wasn't a real great connection". Lo and behold about 3 minutes later the same caller is back on the board and Howard takes his call and says something like, "didn't I just talk to you?". The guy says something like, "yea but I was nervous the first time". Howard and him then pretty much repeat repeat the conversation they just had . This time the connection is crystal clear. Now if these AGT calls aren't scripted HOW DOES THE SAME CALLER EVEN GET THROUGH 3 MINUTES LATER. HOW OFTEN DO WE HEAR, "I TRIED FOR DAYS TO GET IN TOUCH WITH YOU. or, I HAVE BEEN ON HOLD ALL MORNING? TOTAL FUCKING SELLOUT!

    Yeah, that was pretty fucking suspect, IMO.

    It was so obvious, but I didn't need any more evidence at this point. It's been a commercial since he announced it the day Don brought over the champagne.

    He's such an asshole. He must think that his audience literally consists of Mary Anne & Bobo types. :rolleye:

    I think the proof that Howard is working for AGT came when he announced he landed a job on AGT.

    In order to land Howard the AGT gig, Buchwald must have sent out demo tapes of Howard shilling Sirius, back on WXRK.

    Am just imagining the note that must have accompanied the demo tape that was sent to AGT.

    MEMO

    To: AGT
    From: DBA, representing One Twelve, LLC

    Hey guys,

    Here's that tape of Howard working in plugs for Sirius, during his last few years on terrestrial radio. He drove those CBS/Viacom/Infinity/WXRK nudniks meshuga. He's unstoppable when it comes to Hakn a tshaynik. Even though his contract stated management had to be "cut in" on all advertising, and stated they had "final offer" rights, should he receive an offer from a different company, Howard fucked them over in favor of his new Masters, Sirius. He sold product for 18 months straight. And lie? Boychick, did he ever. He got his fans to believe he'd be on the radio 5 days a week, there'd be 3 different channels, no censorship, and quality programming. He artfully linked "Commercial Free" with "Satellite Radio," which had the effect of telling his listeners that he'd be ad free, while he never actually promised it. Even when his old boss suspended him for a day, he came back the next day, laughing about his "paid vacation day" and went right back to hak'ing the promised land. He can do all that, and more, for you and AGT.

    Listen, if you're going to hire a judge, why not hire another landsman? Such chutzpah he has, and he'll hak your show endlessly, from December all the way to the "season finale" in September. Like he has something better to do?

    Remember, when you buy Howard, you're getting Team Stern as well. You get me, Don Buchwald. I'll have my entire stable of talent singing AGT's praises. You get Robin, the token shvartse. No matter what stupid copy you write, Howard will read it and she'll back him up by cackling at all the right spots, and agreeing whole heartedly.

    You'll get Jason and Will, who will set up fake callers and make sure Howard allows them to suck him off. Bad phone connection? No problem. They'll just call the shill caller back, and let him read his lines again. All AGT scripted calls will instantly go to the top of the call screen, and the "off air" voice, heard only through Howard's headphones, will remind him when it's time to take the call, and help him out should he blow a line.

    You'll get Baba Booey and creepy Jon Hein. (Don't worry, he's not as creepy as he looks; just keep an eye on your children when he's in the room.) They'll plug AGT endlessly on The Wrap Up Show. Gary's been "house broken" so he'll stick to whatever script you approve. Also, we'll include "Baba Booey" shout outs on random, live, news bits like sporting events and on the scene coverage. Our Buchwaldian army of local news talking heads will ensure "AGT Howard" gets frequent mentions in such cities as LA, Cincinnati, and of course, NYC.

    Act now, and we'll even throw in free plugs on "Mom Caves," the exciting, new, show on HGTV. The beautiful Beth Ostrosky Stern will be hosting it, and will be tweeting details to all of her fans for the next several months. We can even arrange things so that it airs the day before AGT premieres. Wow. Talk about 'synergy.'

    Worried about "Bad Boy, Potty Mouth Howard"? No need to be. He has evolved and is fully PC now. His wife never shits, and he doesn't even talk about having sex with her anymore, unless it's an ad for VT Teddy Bear[SUP]TM[/SUP]. Best of all, instead of masturbating to fall asleep, the way he used to, he's now taking Ambien[SUP]TM[/SUP]. How's that for product placement? Howard is also available for other big pharma ad campaigns, such as Geritol[SUP]TM[/SUP], Metamucil[SUP]TM[/SUP], Viagra[SUP]TM[/SUP], Cialis[SUP]TM[/SUP], or whomever you wish. With his chronic agita, Prilosec[SUP]TM[/SUP] or Nexium[SUP]TM[/SUP] would also be ideal candidates. Don't forget Purell[SUP]TM[/SUP] or other Baby wipes. He could have a bottle prominently placed, next to his "X," and make a show of using it, each episode, after touching members of the studio audience.

    What's that? KMart is one of the big AGT sponsors, and you have concerns over brand conflict? Ho, ho, not to worry. Why, Howard just loves Ellen DeGeneres. (She is the spokes-dyke for KMart these days, nu?) He's been a big fan of hers since way back. He loves Rosie, too. You can ask her. Their on air tiffs were simply for cross-promotional reasons. In fact, even though Howard loves Ellen so much, he's willing to get into a fake feud with her, near the end of the AGT season, so that people will have to tune in, next year, to find out what happens.

    What a mensch, this guy. I just love working with him, and you will, too. And the audience? They'll adore him.

    Oy Vey! Will you look at the time? Get in touch with me, soon.

    Love ya'
    Don Buchwald

    Howard did manage to crow bar a plug in for Mom Caves today, saying it premieres in April.

    If they do 12 episodes, that wouldnt put it on track to be canceled sometime in June, God willing.

    April? Earlier, they said it was scheduled to start on Mother's Day, in May.

    BTW, I think they also said the contract was for eight episodes. but I could be wrong on that.

    Interestingly, not only does IMDB not have any listing for this season's Mom Caves, they don't even list last year's pilot.

    the show was insufferable today. it is AGT all the time everyday.....and it isn't very interesting.
