Comedian and former “Full House” star Bob Saget passed away suddenly over the weekend while on tour doing stand-up. He was 65. On Monday, Howard—who learned about Saget’s death from Train frontman Pat Monahan—shared some thoughts on the actor and 10-time Stern Show guest. “I liked Bob—very nice guy,” he recalled to co-host Robin Quivers. “The few times I was able to hang out with him … just lovely.”

In addition to his work on “Full House,” “How I Met Your Mother,” and “Half Baked,” Saget was also a longtime host of “America’s Funniest Home Videos,” which Howard praised him for. “I thought he was quite good at that,” he noted.  “It’s not that easy to host ‘America’s Funniest Home Videos’ … but he did a good job with it.”

While he had less success doing it, Saget was also notable for the time he competed in Win Fred’s Money. “Bob had the unique distinction of not getting one question right,” Howard remembered with a laugh of Bob’s showing in the trivia game against Fred Norris.

After hearing of “Full House” co-star and frequent Stern Show guest John Stamos’ emotional reaction, Robin revealed she had spent time with the duo. “I spent several social moments with Bob and John and they were just amazing together,” she remembered. “You could tell there was this incredible love between them.”
