    Howard is a great celebrity interviewer now ?? They constantly say that on the wrap up show. His celeb interviews are ponderous. Fake therapy sessions where Howard insists his guests have Daddy and Mommy issues. He also makes these interviews way too long. Acts like everybody is absolutely fascinating. Howard , FYI, a lot of celebs just aren't interesting. Haaaarible.

    its not a special talent to assume everyone has mommy & daddy issues because the majority of people do: its part of being normal. whats bogus about Howard is that he is actually talking about himself when he points out the guests issues. everything is a mirror for a narcissist like Howard.

    ...too late cbs already hired a celebrity interviewer name steven colbert. cnn isnt going to hire the wig and fox wont invest in howard. maybe wiggy can take over the view or the talk since hes such good friends with les moonves.

    Wiggy is all about fucking Sirius (they stole his marbles). He puts 0.0 effort into his show.

    Interviews are awkward. Lots of nervous laughter. He asks rude questions, oblivious to the insulting premises contained in his questions and comments. He talks over guests trying to answer his questions. Hard to find one much worse on any sort of major entertainment program.

    John Hein claims this is a great interviewer. He also claims he doesn't touch boys. Draw your own conclusions from that.

    It's all about killing time these days. These long interviews reduce the need for planned bits and other show prep...but don't forget he still has to mitigate his laziness and loss of verbal agility.

    So, he uses a standard bench of guests -- Joan Rivers, Tan Mom, Kathy Griffin, etc. -- who he knows will provide filler, but he's secure because he knows they will take his abuse without challenging him or calling out his bullshit.

    Great point, I was thinking the same thing - Howard basically ignores everything the guest says and just pushes his own thoughts and feelings onto them, and then tries to get them to agree. But Howard has Narcissistic Personality Disorder so that goes right with his illness. The other thing that's awful is that he doesn't have any sense of how to have a conversation and just steamrolls over the guest with new questions right after they start to answer the first one.


    I was really enjoying listening to Danny Trejo's story about the prison riot with the baseball team and how it started, and just as he got into it the wig inexplicably asks (again!): "So, how was your mom and dad at this point? Did they abandon you? Did your mom write?". I couldn't believe it, I could not believe anyone that anyone could be that bad stupid. Even Robin got pissed and said "Yes Howard, he already answered that! He said his mother wrote to him!" Wiggy derailed the conversation back into mommy and daddy land for another few minutes, but luckily DT got back to the point he was making and finished what was a very good story.
