Howard got Mike Walker of The National Enquirer on the line, as he does every Thursday, to play "The Gossip Game," in which Mike reads four gossip items – three (allegedly) true, and one false – and the crew has to guess the fake. Mike then read this week's stories:
1. Kiefer Sutherland claims to have been changed by the 48 days he spent in jail
2. Julianne Moore cleaned up after a rude New Yorker's dog.
3. Keanu Reeves took off his shoes and socks in the middle of a fancy restaurant so he could stretch his toes.
4. Tom Cruise wants to convert Britney Spears to Scientology.
For the first time in a while, the crew each thought a different story was the fake; Howard picked 1, Robin picked 4, Artie picked 3, and Fred picked 2. Mike then revealed that Fred had zeroed in on the false item yet again.
