This clip is either everything you love or everything you hate about Howard Stern. He’s loud, he’s obnoxious, he makes everything about him, and most importantly, he starts shit.
If this were any other guest, I would assume Stern asking Letterman about Leno was scripted. But given that Stern doesn’t seem like a man to stick to a script and the producers response, I’m guessing no one was planning for this to happen.
Howard, come on. Don’t do that. You just went from “successful, risque interviewer” to “woman at the bachelorette party who brings up the bride’s ex just to say how much she always hated him.” And it’s when you do this shit that I don’t understand why people listen to you. That wasn’t brave or gutsy. It was just shit talking. Why would Dave even ask you back when this is the crap that you pull?
Alright fine. Maybe you can’t win me over, Howard, but you can turn the coolest guy in late night into a giggling mess. I’ll allow it.
