    Howard's appearance on the Dick Cavett Show from 30 years ago was broadcast on the Decades channel tonight.

    Very awkward. Mark Gastineau was also a guest and stayed on set during the interview. Howard talked about his syndication into Philadelphia and his new weekly nationally syndicated radio talk show (remember that one). He also spoke about his and Dick's bad reviews.

    Holy shit, there is actually a channel RUNNING that show? It was an ABC show that lasted less than I year, as I recall.

    I remember the morning they announced it was cancelled, Howard called Cavett and played CSN's Deja Vu over the phone to him.

    ABC has the most miserable track record in late night in the '80s. In addition to Cavett, they tried David Brenner (Howard also appeared on that one), Rick Dees, and I think even Jimmy Breslin. Even as I kid, I would hear about these shows and say "no way, gone in weeks". Who on earth would watch Rick Dees over JOHNNY CARSON?

    Finally, once Carson left they got Bill Maher in there, and later Kimmel and had a modicum of success.

    I watched that too. Howard made a remark about how nice Gastineau's hair was and brought up gay stuff. He was obsessing over that stuff 30 years ago.

    Awful. Can't even get through it. The funny part is him having to be quiet, since
    he ALWAYS has to take over.

    Positive proof that Howard hasn't had an original idea of his own in 30 years.:no:

    Any Stern appearance on late night television is a train wreck. He thinks talking non-stop is the way to be entertaining. Proof positive that without writers, he couldn't joke his way out of a paper bag.
