    1987 unaired Fox pilot. A younger group and pre-Louis the 14th hair.

    Wait. Are you suggesting that in the 1987 pilot everbody is younger? Unpossible!

    Howard's pilot looks like a slightly less professional version of the Gorgeous George Show (although both show hosts are probably close on level of delusion and egomania)

    Wow, that is some riveting shit....mesmerizing in its horrible-ness and lack of entertainment value....

    Watch a fool in leather and his oafish sidekick in blue leather, sitting down trying to riff about some bs for 5 minutes that feels like 5 hours...fucking ponderous

    So clearly when Howard says he's upset that the Fox show tapes are lost, he means he personally destroyed every tape himself. That was embarrassing even by today's Stern standards.

    It's nice to see that Howard's OCD was non-existent until Richard Lewis made OCDs comedic material.

    Lol at robin's entrance. Watching things like this, it's almost amazing that Howard was successful at any form of entertainment, including radio.
