Simon Cowell was on my show today to talk about his TV talent show. No, not “American Idol.” He’s the producer of “America’s Got Talent,” which returns tonight for its second season.

I asked him why he fired Regis Philbin and Brandy and replaced them with Jerry Springer and Sharon Osbourne, how he plans on keeping David Hasselhoff sober, and what kind of freak show acts he hates the most.

You’ll notice that I didn’t ask Simon any “Idol” questions, because we only had a few minutes and a lot of stuff to cover about the other show, and because we’ve already heard his answers to all of those Sanjaya inquiries.
