Adam Carolla stopped by to sit in on the show and told Robin she was looking great: "I was going to say 10 years younger but 10 times more f'able."
Howard and Adam quickly bonded over how horrible they both looked in all the photos taken at Jimmy Kimmel's party--Adam said it couldn't be the bad angles: "At a certain point you're just not good-looking...I don't think [John] Stamos has a bunch of shitty pictures of himself."
A Horrible Failure
Howard mourned Adam's radio career, as he'd given the show some relative support: "I haven't wished you death." Adam shot back: "No. Just horrible failure."
Adam said he now recorded a 90 minute podcast 5 days a week and distributed it for free on the Internet--so far he's paid $100,000 out of pocket to fund it: "The bandwidth is $10,000-plus a month."
Howard asked: "So if every one of my listeners went out today and downloaded your podcast, you'd be bankrupt? Adam laughed: "Yes." Adam added that the podcast was a relative success--it averages about 2.5 million downloads a week.
Adam said he's also been working on a series of failed sitcom pilots: "They don't call it the failed pilot, at least not at the beginning."
So far, he's made one for CBS and one for NBC—neither was picked up. Adam said he still had options: "ABC and FOX still don't know I don't have anything...the thing about TV is you're allowed to fail and you're allowed to keep failing for a long period of time."
Not Shocked by the Silverman-Kimmel Breakup
Howard asked if Adam was surprised by Jimmy Kimmel's break-up with Sarah Silverman, and Adam replied:
"No. I initially had the feeling that they'd be finished...she's was crazy and she's a comedian and neurotic and this is never going to work and Jimmy hates Jews. It's no news. Everyone knows. So how's this going to work? And then, at a certain point, like a couple years in, I was like, 'Wow, she's the nicest person on the planet. I can't believe how sane and nice she is.'"
