Don't ask Howie to describe "Howie.""There's no way to describe it," says funny guy Howie Mandel of his series of four CBS summer comedy specials. "I don't know what it is. It's everything I've ever wanted to do, and CBS allows me to do it.""Howie," which debuted this week in the 8:30-9 p.m. Wednesday slot, is culled from several special performances before a theater-in-the-round audience of 3,000. It features stand-up, improvisational skits, surprise guest shots (some involving animals) and a band with sax-man Clarence Clemons.

Long-time ABC correspondent Lynn Sherr and I joined Howie Kurtz for some analysis Sunday on the change last week at the ABC News anchor desk involving Diane Sawyer, David Muir and George Stephanopoulos. I really like what Sherr had to say about it being so important for the person who is first in anything "to not mess up. " And Kurtz is right about where the money and power (what's left of it anyway) is in network news.   #sigshell { float: left; width: 320px; height: 52px; margin: 20px 0px; display: block; }

After a week spent writing post after post about "House of Cards" and its troubles in Maryland, I had a chance Sunday on Howie Kurtz's "Media Buzz" to finally weigh in on the troubles of "Meet the Press" and its host, David Gregory. It's been a bad three years for the show as it went from first to third place in the Sunday morning wars. And Gregory's failure as a host was brought ijnto sharp focus last week with a report that NBC News hired a "psychological consultant" to interview Gregory's wife, friends and others about him. NBC claims it was a "brand consultant' -- not a shrink -- as if that is so much better.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - The tree arrived in a little box and without fanfare close to four decades ago, a seedling given by a brother in California to his sister here. For years it grew in a pot until Cary Ellen Howie decided, finally, it was big enough to go in the ground. And there it is today, rising gracefully to 51 feet, about five stories tall, in her backyard. In a city filled with pines, poplars and oaks soaring to 100 feet and higher, one might not think twice about a tree half that height.

Maryland's new labor secretary will be Leonard Howie, an official at the state Department of Human Resources, the state said Monday. Gov. Martin O'Malley said in a statement that he was "confident in Leonard's ability to connect Marylanders with the jobs and skills they need to compete. " Howie steps into his new job Oct. 8. Former Labor Secretary Alexander M. Sanchez left in May to work for Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, with Scott R. Jensen filling in as interim secretary since then.

I'm probably taking this show a little too seriously over here, but some presentation as to how the 24 acts are divided up into two groups would be nice, because the second week of the semi-finals is full of acts that could never compete with the ones from the first week. Brian Dittelman lost, even though that mind-reading nerd could whoop the majority of this week's semi-finalists. Makes no sense at all.  Onto week two's far more miserable group of semi-finalists. Recurring themes this week were big time acts going small, Avicii's dance hit "Le7els," and as always, Howard imparting wisdom no one asked him to impart.

Baltimore escape artist Spencer Horsman returned to "America's Got Talent" last night to try and convince voters he's worth a wildcard spot. Horsman, one of Howard Stern's picks, was first up. Horsman, in a steampunk-like metal vest with eight padlocks, dropped himself into a booth that filled with 150 gallons of wet cement. "If I fail, I'll be buried alive," he announced in the pre-performance video. A big part of an escape artist's act is selling the drama and making the audience freak out over the fact that hey, they might die up there.

Tonight's episode, a two-hour slog through 12 YouTube acts, began with Nick Cannon apologizing for the show before it even got started. He made sure to note that Season Five's YouTube shows yielded Jackie Evancho, who ended up being the runner-up that year. The implicit message was, "Hey, these aren't just some bums from the Internet. " Oh, but they are totally bums from the Internet. Let's meet them before the majority of them go away forever, tomorrow night: Clint Carvalho & His Extreme Parrots: A schlubby guy who trained a cockatoo named Kitten to fly into the "AGT" studio from a building across the street.

Baltimore's Spencer Horsman is one of 12 acts performing live tonight in the quarterfinals. After the show, America will vote and only four will advance to the next round.  Tonight's show starts off with The Untouchables, a Latin dance troupe of kids of all ages. They're so good, it's almost creepy. They dance just like adults and they're so professional -- I'll bet they go home, put their feet up and talk about the sagging economy while they watch the evening news.  Mike Price, "rock star" juggler, is up next.

To Dennis Miller, America is a pretty uptight place. People all want you to think like they do, says the inherently cynical comic."Yeah, it just seems to me to be a place where the oft-used phrase is 'politically cor ect,' " Mr. Miller said in a telephone interview last week from Vancouver, British Columbia, where he was vacationing with his wife, model Ali Espley, his 13-month-old son Holden and his in-laws. "There's a politically correct way to think, and if you deviate from that then, it's not quite McCarthyism, but . . ."

"America's Got Talent" is in New York for a second night. Howard Stern brought his parents along. They look like a sweet old couple, but according to Howard, they've been complaining about waiting in the auditorium for the past two hours. First to audition is a singer/dancer named Ronald Charles. I can already tell his act isn't going to be pretty; his turquoise leggings and weird haircut are dead giveaway. I'm right. He's so awful, Howard gets his dad (who is conveniently equipped with a microphone)
