If Eric the Midget Were in Charge

Wack Packer calls in to suggest "Weird" Al Yankovic replace Simon Cowell on "American Idol"

Eric the Midget called in to suggest that Weird Al Yankovic replace Simon Cowell on the next season of 'American Idol,' leading Howard to joke: "I never thought of Weird Al Yankovic as the solution to any problem."

Eric said Simon would be missed: "He's the person who got the whole show started. Besides Nigel. And the other Simon."
