Howard got “Girls” creator, writer, director, and star Lena Dunham on the line to formally reverse his harsh (and widely-reported) first take on her and her show. “I’m a super fan of your show,” Howard told her. He said Perez Hilton only told half the story on his website, reporting how Howard didn’t like “Girls” after watching only two episodes.

“I was thinking out loud … That’s what I do. I just kind of ramble on,” Howard said. The next day, however, after watching three more episodes, it hit him. “I realize, not only am I addicted, but I totally get you,” Howard told Lena. “I’m in love with you and your character … So, I came in and said to Robin, on the air, ‘I changed my mind. I love the show. And I love Lena and I love what she’s doing with it.'”

“It’s not about apologizing, although, I want to say I’m a fan of yours,” Howard continued. “I love you and I think you’re terrific.”
