At the mention of 'AGT,' Howard said he was looking forward to tonight's premiere, since he's still yet to see any footage. But he has spoken with someone who has: Simon Cowell. "He's seen the show. He's seen the whole thing. Yeah. He thinks I'm spectacular so I was relieved, because he knows that kind of television. He's the master." Howard said Simon had called to say as much last weekend: "He was carrying on for like 45 minutes about it."
