Howard started off the show complaining about a Page Six story that misrepresented his views on Stuttering John. Howard explained how he really felt: "Jay Leno should hire John [on his new primetime show]...he was willing to lose a friendship with me over it."
Howard also clarified what he said yesterday: "I wasn't saying I have a grudge against John. I have a grudge against Jay." Fred speculated that John was never supported after Jay first hired him: "Maybe the person who thought John would be a good addition put him up there and didn't back him up." Howard was so upset that he promised to phone John off the air: "I am gonna call Stuttering John. I want him to know I really don't have any animosity and I want him to know I hope he gets the job."
