Early in the show, Howard went over his AGT schedule for the rest of the week, which included meetings with several NBCUniversal exectutives: "All the NBC brass. They rely on me...I don't even know why they have to meet with me."
Howard said he was scheduled to meet with them in waves, 3 at a time: "It's hard to figure out what goes on over there."
Howard also moaned that Jimmy Kimmel wanted to throw him a party while he's in LA even though he was going out there to work. Howard worried that the stress of his new job would make it hard for him to enjoy a party but thought he might be able to handle it as long as the party was at 5pm - so that's what he told Jimmy.
