'America's Got Talent' judge Piers Morgan dished on the Hoff vs. Howie during his appearance on 'The Tonight Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC).
When Jay Leno asked whether he missed ex-judge David Hasselhoff, Morgan replied, "It's like missing an electric drill in your head. It's less painful, it's quieter." He began calling the actor Breaking News Hoff, because every day he had news of yet another drama going on in his life.
As for his replacement, Morgan joked, "I didn't think anybody could be more annoying than David Hasselhoff, but welcome to Howie Mandel."
Morgan quickly learned to give the germaphobe a fist-pump instead of a handshake. And on the first day they worked together, Mandel had a special surprise gift for the Brit -- involving a 200-strong gay male choir.
