Howie Mandel, Media Critic

Pretty funny appearance this morning on Good Day LA by comedian Howie Mandel. There to promote his FOX spontaneous flash mob series Mobbed, the comedian instead began by focusing on the program’s format.

“You’re the only show that is so much concerned for the guests that we won’t make it from over there to the desk,” he observed as he was escorted from camera-right by Steve Edwards. And perhaps hinting at some heated internal meetings, Jillian Reynolds replied that she has never been a fan of the practice, wishing that instead guest segments would start from the desk.

Mandel also complimented Edwards on his segue way abilities. “Not many people can go from, ‘Yo gabba gabba’ to Sandusky,” Mandel noted. And he short-formed his own show as Plunked since it is basically a combination of Punked and Glee.
