When Howard accidentally opened the show Wednesday with a partially unbuttoned shirt, longtime co-host Robin Quivers intervened, possibly helping him save face with upcoming guest Jerry Seinfeld in the process. “Are you showing boobage – cleavage, this morning?” she asked with surprise. “You’ve got your shirt open all the way to your waist.”

“That’s not a good look, let me button up,” Howard said with a laugh. “Jerry would spend a half hour ridiculing me for my shirt being open. The guy observes everything … I could just see him going, ‘You ever talk to a guy at dinner and his shirt’s unbuttoned?'”

“I know you don’t usually go three buttons deep before you start to button,” an observant Robin responded.

Considering both the first and final episodes of Jerry’s legendary sitcom “Seinfeld” broached the subject of George Costanza’s shirt buttons, Howard and Robin were just in their concerns. “That button was in no man’s land,” Howard recalled of the opening scene of the pilot episode. “It’s not ridiculous to think that Jerry wouldn’t comment on your shirt for like an hour.”
