    He always pretends he doesn't know his name or who he is, or he bashes his former show. Did Ferguson snub Beth on one of her "book tours"? Ferguson gets the Amanda Peet treatment from Stern.

    Ferguson is better looking.

    Ferguson is more famous.

    Ferguson is funnier.

    Ferguson is not married to a gold-digger.



    This could turn into a very long list.

    Plus Ferguson actually got a late-night talk show, Howard can only lie and claim he was offered one.

    If it is not from NYC it is not good. What did he say the other day? Something to the effect of "you know that Irish or Canadian guy or whatever he is"? I did not realize Canadian 's have Scotish accents.

    I'd say Craig turned down a Beth booking call.

    "CBS approached me about that job Robin. Les wouldn't leave me alone about it. But why would I want to leave this empire at Sirius I've worked so hard for?"

    I don't know about Ferguson, but Beth's Yoda / Kitten Bowl tours didn't include Letterman this time. Wonder if that's the reason Howard has been getting in little digs at Dave lately.

    He hates everyone who is funnier than he is and who doesn't worship him.
    He even hates Monty Python.

    Anything more sophisticated than fart and dick jokes is completely beyond Howard's comprehension.

    Howard is jealous of anyone with a talk show. He makes fun of them to make himself feel better about his failures in television.

    He purposely mispronounces a lot of names because he thinks it gives the appearance that they aren't important enough to remember. Plus it's downright hilarious when he mentions bay-on-say for the umpteenth time.

    Plus, Craig now hosts a game show - one of Pluggy's unrealized ambitions.

    Oh - and it's exec produced by "good friends" David Arquette and Courtney "Cock" - talk about a snub of the Wigged Wonder.

    I think that's true of most game shows. Looks like easy money for Craig - he hardly does any work. The celebs and civilians do the heavy lifting.
