    It always annoys me when someone like Stevie Wonder comes on and never completes a full song when performing. What gives?

    I thought Howard likes the medleys, gives him more time to interrupt. They can do the hits quickly. There's a lot of emphasis on the show to keep things moving, which is probably a good thing.

    This is exactly why. It has nothing to do with keeping the show moving.

    Billy Joel and a few others will not sing a complete song either. Just annoys me.

    i think that its a combination of the time of day (these guys probably don't normally rise before noon), and that generally the live performance is so superior to the studio recording that nobody will buy the record once they hear it live.

    Because Howard spits and doesn't swallow. They return the favor.

    Robin's obesity disturbs them.

    It is not bs. It is hard to sing early in the morning. Not just 'cause they're rock stars.

    Who cares? The overly long and frequent interviews are a big part of what killed the show for me.
