Howard said he'd watched--and wasn't excited by--last night's 'American Idol' premiere: "I lasted a half hour...I miss Simon terribly." But one judge did well: "Steven Tyler--who happened to be here the other day--was actually a breath of fresh air. He was really good. A really good judge. He was really interesting. To see him with Simon would have been really good. He was riveting. He was funny." Robin agreed: "He really is an American Idol." Howard said Jennifer Lopez's posing and forced shtick spoiled the rest: "It's too hard. I can't do it." On top of J.Lo, Ryan Seacrest didn't seem to be invested anymore: "The overall show doesn't work. I think they have a problem on their hands." Howard thought Simon Cowell's new show, an American production of the British hit ,'X Factor,' would likely beat his old one: "He's got a good shot."
