Early in the show, Howard listened to a clip of Don Imus--and his co-host, Charles McChord--slighting Howard's Rolling Stone interview. However, the marble-mouthed octogenarian's delivery was so garbled, Howard had to play the clip several times in order to decipher what he said. Howard said Imus was still biting his shtick: "I spent a lot of years fretting over this career. Unlike Imus." Howard also told Imus' crew to stop sniffing around: "They all hate him. Douchebags. Don't call me for a job."
