Early in the show, Howard answered complaints that the show had become overridden with AGT talk: "I know not everyone's going to like everything I do but the show is about me. The show is about my life and what goes on in it. And most times, I'm just sitting in my apartment imagining a life and waiting for the next show." Howard's radio show is a survey of his life--and AGT, for now, is a part of that: "My whole life is this show. I hate all of you. … [so] cancel. Who gives shit?"
