Howard started by saying he stayed up last night to vote for Sanjaya after "American Idol," while Robin noted she called in for him as well, while Artie admitted he went to bed to take a nap, just to be ready to vote, but ended up sleeping until 4:30 a.m. and therefore wasn't able to help the cause. Artie did point out, though, how angry he thought Beth was about Howard's Sanjaya campaign when she spoke about it as a co-host on "The View" yesterday. Howard went on to say he started voting for Sanjaya at 9:05 p.m. and that he got through only twice. However, Robin added she was able to vote "30 or 40 times" when she called. Robin also commented she felt like Simon Cowell was speaking directly to Howard and his fans last night when he told Sanjaya that nothing he said about his performance mattered if "they" wanted him to win.
Eric the Midget then called in to say there was a chance Sanjaya could be voted off the show this week because of the way he "murdered" the No Doubt song, "Bathwater," he performed last night, but even Fred insisted Sanjaya's rendition of it "wasn't bad." Howard then gave Eric 30 seconds to encourage people to get rid of Sanjaya, and he demanded people not vote for him because doing so made "a mockery" of "American Idol." When Eric was done with his rant, though, Howard informed him that he'd have Richard edit the tape so it sounded like Eric was actually supporting Sanjaya, and then he'd play it all next week.
When "Sanjaya" – who sounded just like High Pitch Eric – got on the line to demand people vote for him, Eric replied he could always tell it was High Pitch when he made his prank calls.
