When Howard started by talking about his upcoming television appearance schedule – which includes "Late Show with David Letterman" on Tuesday, "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" on Thursday, and "Jimmy Kimmel Live," via satellite, on Friday – Artie told him he was sure Jimmy's crew was looking forward to finally having him on as a guest.
Howard then acknowledged he didn't like doing talk shows because he never knew what to talk about, but added he met Gayle King at a Christmas party thrown by Bryant Gumbel this weekend, so he could discuss that. Before Howard got to that, though, he announced that George Takei was in the studio once again for the entire week. George then mentioned he had a recurring role on the program, "Heroes," starting next month, and that his character spoke exclusively in Japanese. George went on to call William Shatner "blessed" both for his success on "Boston Legal," as well as his new game show, "Show Me the Money."
