Good Morning Everybody!
Marfan Mike kicked off the show announcing Monday's guest, Lady Gaga, who was fresh off performing "Saturday Night Live" to celebrate the release of her new album, "Joanne."
Howard said he thought her performance was great and figured the ratings for "SNL" must have been through the roof between that and the show's recent string of presidential debate sketches. "That Alec Baldwin – anything he does you watch," Howard praised as he and Robin had a laugh about Stephen Baldwin's criticism of his brother's hilarious Trump impression.
Howard also told Robin he was up Sunday night watching a fascinating documentary called "Weiner."
"You mean Jeffrey Weiner?" Robin inquired, garnering a collective laugh from the studio.
Howard's co-host quickly realized her mistake and explained she had spent the weekend in bed fighting off a cold, which must have caused the mix-up.
After a quick digression where Howard took the opportunity to give Robin a lecture as his parents, Ben and Ray, he returned to his thoughts about "Weiner" and told listeners the documentary really is pretty unbelievable.
In addition to "Weiner," Howard said he got a copy of "A People's History of the United States" by Howard Zinn after reading Bruce Springsteen's recent Rolling Stone interview in which he describes the effect the book has had on his life.
