Early in the show, Howard went over his "AGT" schedule for the rest of the week, which included meetings with several NBCUniversal executives.
"All the NBC brass. They rely on me ... I don't even know why they have to meet with me," Howard told Robin.
Howard also moaned that Jimmy Kimmel wanted to throw him a party while he's in L.A., even though he was going out there for work. Howard worried the stress of his new job would make it hard for him to enjoy an A-List gathering but thought he told Jimmy he might be able to handle it as long as the party was at 5 p.m.
