    You know he won't be on before May 20. So despite AGT's probable BEGGING him to go on and plug the show, what excuse will he use now that Beth's ankle has been used already?

    The man is busy. He has 3 homes that he has to clean, cook and do all the gardening. I know this because he never mentions having any home staff.

    He won't miss it. Buchwald has been harassing letterman's people since he announced the retirement to have wiggy on.

    He won't flake out on this because he still thinks he's relevant and this is one of his justifications.

    What's in it for Letterman? Letterman wants a Festschrift from people who actually matter. Howard doesn't matter any more and Howard's shtick is old and thin at this point. I just can't imagine what Letterman gets out of having the Wig on to self-promote himself and AGT.

    He said today that all the late night shows are calling him to do their shows.

    He said that the Letterman people called him and asked him and he said yes but, he had to keep it quiet.


    Marks Friggin:

    Howard said he gets calls to be on all of the late night shows. He said Letterman's people called and asked if he wanted to be a part of the final shows. Howard said of course he does. He said he gets stressed out by that though. Howard said he would do Dave's show once in a while because he likes Dave. He said he is there in New York so that helps. Howard said he said yes and they told him not to say anything. He said he was quiet about it. He said he's not on the last show, he's on two weeks before the show ends. Howard said then they press release it that he's one of the people who will be on. Howard said they have quite an extraordinary list of guests. Howard said he read the Daily News today about who will be on the last couple of weeks. Howard said in the NY Post they took his name out of it. Howard said he's not sure why. Howard said it looks like it was an AP reporter who did it. Howard said she must hate him or something. Howard said she went out of her way to take his name out of it. Howard said he obsesses on stuff like that. It makes him angry. He said he's not sure why he cares though.

    Howard said David Hinckley made a top 10 list of guests on the Letterman show and he's not in it. Howard said he thinks he should be though.


    Howard said that he has to correct himself. He said that he's not the only one whose name was left off in the NY Post list of Letterman guests. Howard said a bunch of others were left off too. Howard read the list of names that are coming up in the last few weeks of Letterman's show. Howard said he's happy to be in that list.
    Howard said he thinks Dave is going to disappear after he retires. Howard took a call from Bobo who said he thinks this will be Howard's 45th appearance on Letterman. Howard said he used to do it like 6 or 7 times a year. He said it's really draining. He said he had to stop. Howard said he used to rack his brain about what he was going to do on there. He said he'd rather do that about what he's doing on his radio show.

    Sure, because it was such major news when it finally got out. The stock market would've crashed had that info leaked. Howard is only king of his make believe world now.

    This is how Howard sees himself and when the dude's dad comes down, that's how us people of Earth see him.

    Both Howard and Jay Thomas have repeatedly said that Dave is "weird" and things that indicate they don't like him the minute they don't get what they want from him. Jay seems miffed he isn't going to be on for the final round of shows.

    The difference is Jay never pretended they were friends or that he was anything but a guest to fill time on the show.

    I am curious to see the wigged one on Letterman as the final appearance. We all know Howie is not funny but I am hoping that it will be a bit entertaining.

    Maybe Letterman will take one last tug on that beautiful full head of hair that a 17 year old man would be jealous of.
