Eric the Actor's JFSC AGT Wrap-Up Show

Early in the show, Howard said Eric the Actor's JFSC AGT Wrap-Up Show had worked out their audio problems and landed a sponsor--Polestock, a karaoke/pole dance competition at the Viper Room: "It's off to a rousing start." Howard said Eric had complained that Kelly Ripa's Live! co-host candidates had to pay their own way to NYC--so Howard promised to fund Eric's trip: "If the fluke happens, we'll find a way to pay for it. … I'm telling you they'll never choose you."
