Eric the Midget called in to discuss his “American Idol” commentary show, so Howard played a few clips from the show in which the introduction was riddled with technical difficulties and Eric yelled at the show’s listeners/commenters. Howard compared the clips to the Batman radioplays he made as a child, noting that even those recordings were better produced than Eric’s show.

Ralph called in to ask why Eric even bothered to do the show, so Eric explained: “Just cause I want to do it.” Howard also played clips of Eric’s co-hosts arguing with Eric about his desire to have one of the Bunny Ranch girls on his show and Ralph suggested that Eric just “put his wheel down” and do what he wants with his show.
