Variety- Neil Patrick Harris has a long history of success at the CBS network, from his starring role on “How I Met Your Mother” to his multiple Emmy wins for hosting the Tony Awards. So it should come as no surprise that CBS was interested in the multitalented actor to replace David Letterman on “The Late Show.” Harris confirmed the news on Wednesday’s Howard Stern show that, before CBS hired Stephen Colbert for the “Late Show” post, network chief Leslie Moonves and entertainment head Nina Tassler pitched him the idea of taking over for either Letterman in the 11:30 slot or for outgoing Craig Ferguson at 12:30. “They called me in and sat me down and asked if that would be something that I’d be interested (in),”’ he told Stern, revealing that the duo even served him “fantastic” sushi at Moonves’ New York office. “I felt like I knew what my skill sets were, and I kind of knew what it is that I wanted to do after the show with (Moonves), so I was surprised he pitched me that idea,” Harris adds. Harris ultimately declined the opportunity because he didn’t have much of an interest in hosting a nightly show for a long time. “I think I would get bored of the repetition fast,” Harris admitted. But Harris isn’t ruling out the possibility of a weekly show at CBS. In fact, he pitched the executives the idea of hosting a variety program in the vein of “SNL.”

I don’t really see why Neil Patrick Harris is the world’s darling but whatever. I mean he’s kinda funny playing a pussy crazed guy because he is gay but what else is there? Song and dance man? Give me Hugh Jackman over Neil any day of the week, the guy is fucking Wolverine for Christ’s sake (and still in the closet gay).

Best interviewer in the world with the funniest guy in the world. That’s all you need to know.

Also Louie is back on FX

This is a longer interview but FULL of information. I’ve always known about Pharrell, like anyone else, and I knew he was a producer and sometime singer/rapper. I had no fucking clue how many hits this guy has written and produced. And now he is the top musician in the world with like 15 number one hits. Fucking unbelievable. He is absolutely a genius and talks about everything and anything Howard asks. If you have the time, listen to this.
Still hate that fucking hat.

To me Spade has always been interesting because he looks like a girl, also like a rodent, yet he has fucked some of the hottest chicks on the planet. He was on one of the best eras in SNL history yet he was probably on the lower rung of funniest guy on the show. The whole thing with him and Chris Farley is strange too because his best friend and comedic partner died and he never seems emotional about it. But Howard gets the best out of interviews so give this one a listen.

If you have 2 and a half hours (plus annoying commercials) then give this a listen. Billy Joel has been on Howard a million times and it’s always good because Billy Joel is the fucking man. Just a simple dude with the voice of an angel who can bang out on the ivory keys (that’s hip piano people lingo). This is by and far the most in depth interview between these two that you will ever hear.

What I say is my favorite Billy Joel song

I don’t have much on this since I just heard it on the Bubba the Love Sponge Show, but apparently DirecTv is cancelling the radio show and the tv show. So Artie finally gets out of the hospital and they can his show, pretty fucking shitty. I really like Artie, I love how he interacts with the guests but I was never a fan of Jon Ritchie being his cohost. I understand he has the insider knowledge of being an ex pro football player. I get that it’s a comedy and sports show. Jon just spoke like he has had way too many concussions. The guy fought through sentences like Bieber fights through chicks at a concert. Loved him on the Raiders, not a huge fan of him being on the radio. Either way I hope Artie lands back on air in some way, shape or form and if it was on one of Howard’s stations that would be fucking awesome. Good luck Artie.

Tracy Morgan is always a strange interview because you can’t tell if he is acting like a fucking nut job or if he really is that way. Sometimes that works out but other times it’s annoying as shit but it’s up to you to determine which is which. Enjoy
