I know I'm being picky, but Mr. Lopate said that Jonathan Lynn directed "Lolita." It was actually Adrian Lyne (or, for the better version, Stanley Kubrick).

Brian,

Not that you need my validation, but when you talk about guests you did not enjoy with Kevin Pollak, I immediately thought of your interview with Jerry Lewis, who was HORRIBLE and very insulting to you. I didn't like him prior to hearing that interview, but ever since, I REALLY DON"T LIKE HIM!! What chutzpah!!
