Please never have this vain, vacuous woman push her banal conversations on us listeners again. She ghoulishly back-stabs the corpse of the man who gave her her "big break". she continues a moronic babble, not up to the usual standards of this program. A relevant quote from ms. Rivers recent past: "Rivers’ response: “Shut the f--- up,” via TMZ."

Hilarious segment! Please please have Joan back--or give her a show interviewing other comics on the regular!

Good job today, Joan! Don't listen to the haters.

If you can accept that Joan is outrageous and recognizes no sacred cows what so ever, then you have to admit that she is truly funny. I'm laughing despite my "correct politics" and that is OK because she is laughing, too.
I've enjoyed the show.

This is a really terrible segment. Like three loud drunks at the next table.

Joan Rivers is a fantastic host! I love Leonard Lopate, but I'd be happy to have Joan back any time. I'd also love it if she had her own show on WNYC, she can go from talking about a tragic hostage situation to comedy without skipping a beat.
Great job Joan!
