Howie Mandel on adding Twitter followers during The Piers Morgan Interview: "Who knew that this show had this power"

Some good natured ribbing, old fashioned button pushing, and chop-busting banter.  That about sums up Howie Mandel's visit to "Piers Morgan Tonight."  

But when the topic turned to Twitter, that's when things got personal.  "Why would anybody want to follow you?" quipped Piers Morgan. "Because I'm wonderfully entertaining," retorted the comedian and television host.

Former co-judges on "America's Got Talent," the sit-down proved an easy occasion for Morgan and Mandel to revisit their friendly rivalry: "You tormented me," recalled Morgan of his time on the show.

Watch the video, and enjoy the exchange as Mandel uses the "Piers Morgan Tonight" platform to grow his social media brand: "I just got two more followers!"

    I thought carefully before commenting on this show. The above description of the interview gives a peculiar twist to Piers's low class treatment of an invited guest. Piers disgusting disparagement of Mandell was clearly premeditated, and not provoked by Mandell. Mandell is a popular, well liked and well known comedian, actor, producer, and host, in the field of entertainment. Piers has yet to, and may never, reach that level. Piers has a stained reputation in Britain and came to America because his future was dim in Britain. His soul-mate and boss, Rupert Murdoch, was disgraced before the world and could offer Piers little future opportunity. Piers has shown himself to endorse Right wing ideologies and if he has any self respect he should declare his preferences. It took only about 1 year for Piers to turn my admiration of him to disgust. .

    Howie Mandel@Howie Mandel- I think Piers Morgan has done Howie Mandel wrong since he 1st showed up as a judge on America's Got Talent & I never could stand him putting Howie down, Making fun of Howie & his Mysophobia (Germophobia), his OCD, Then make fun of his Pranks or Pratical Jokes!!,Man. That's his career & how he makes his living, how he supported his wife-Terry-Soil Mandel, & there 3 children-Alex Mandel, Jackie Mandel, & Riley-Paige Mandel& put the 3 children through scool & high school + College too. So, that has to be a great career for Howie Mandel being: Stand-Up Comedian, Actor: (Walk Like a Man, A Fine Mess, St. Elsewhere TV Series- Dr. Wayne Fiscus),Make Me Laugh ( Game Show), Talk Show- ( The Howie Mandel Show) 1yr., His Game Shows- ($1,000,000,000.00 Deal Or No Deal, Deal or No Deal, $500,000,00 Deal or No Deal, Autobiography: "Here's the Deal" Don't Touch Me! By:Howie Michael Mandel 2., Another Game Show: White Elephant or Take It All!. #Which was a sucessful hit on NBC, because we the audience we could play along with the game on thbe computer with tv which i did every did nite & i won about every nite at nthe nend which was nice too.. Love: Suann Grinstead-#1 Howie Mandel Fan.
