Early in the show, Howard said he'd attended a party for Beth's Hamptons magazine cover and had to suffer through the press line: "Nobody would ever get a hold of me if it wasn't for Beth."
After a long interview with 'Extra,' a reporter for the Daily News relayed a quote in which Larry King had called Howard 'classless' and a 'smock.'
Howard said he didn't understand Larry's animosity: "This is a guy, a radio guy, an overnight guy, who never got ratings...he's a sleeper. He puts people to sleep."
Howard said he and Beth also had dinner with David Spade--a plan they'd made after Beth's most recent appearance on Kimmel: "I just knew we were going to dinner with Spade and some girl."
But Spade showed up alone, saying: "Oh no, I'm flying solo tonight." Another expected guest--Chris Rock--didn't show either.
Chris had decided to have dinner with Adam Sandler instead: "He went down 20 points on a personal level with me...you're Chris Rock. You don't have to be next to Sandler every step of the way."
