rHoward said that he’s received many e-mails about how much people have enjoyed the show recently, but that he didn’t want to read them because he will be accused by some people of self-promotion. However, Gary told Howard that, to even out the praise the show has been getting, he had a clip of a Philadelphia roundtable show that had nothing but negative comments to make about the program.

In the clip, one of the panelists compared Howard’s show to a porno, while another one complained that Howard is making too much money while coalminers don’t have any on-the-job protection. In addition, another panelist argued that, while comedians like Lenny Bruce and George Carlin used foul language to make points, in her opinion, Howard doesn’t have such standards for himself.
