Adam is telling them about the comedy central ‘Politically Incorrect’ he never guested on, BB doesn’t recall and Adam gets him to briefly recall it by describing the roman pillars.
Adam is now getting filled in by Gary and Caelan giving him info on the time P.I. ran on both networks.
Adam is saying around 1999(1998) he started guesting on the show, he was on it about a dozen times a year until it stopped running, possibly with over 4 dozen appearances.
Only so many can be confirmed without having access to the production documents.
Adam is explaining how he becomes a regular on an talk show and how people react to ‘Politically Incorrect’ vs. ‘Bill O’Reilly’ and Adam explains the “one of the Bills would like you on his show” math he does for agreeing to appear on a show.
Adam is now describing how he would tape Loveline after P.I. and he’s exactly right, they did that often, Drew would guest with Adam and separately, but not as often.
BB mentions how traffic plays into every decision of a Los Angelino (yuck) and how the empty sea5ts you see at sporting events are often paid for but people didn’t want to brave the traffic.
Adam is now describing the former P.I. experience and how he became one of Bill’s favorite guests on the show, Adam says he probably did that show from 99-2002 24 times, possibly double that.
Alison is asking Adam some great follow ups and seeing if he’s going to ask Scott about his lack of appearances on ‘Real Time’ and Alison has a funny “more well-known/still well known” double reply.
Alison is bringing up the argument about the fewer guests and fewer episodes and Adam is now addressing the Q rating of the multiple repeat guests during some seasons.
Adam is sharing how a satisfying answer is always the truth, if the answer is “Bill Maher hates your fucking guts” you will not get the answer, you will get a non-answer.
Adam says that if Scott comes in here and lays out a complex explanation that is the truth, if he says almost nothing he is not telling them the full story.
Adam brings up his addressing of the #101 Production numbering, flawed numbering of Loveline the MTV Show, you start at 1 and add the reaming info to the metadata or you know write it on the fucking tape in 1996.
Adam is doing a Reverie Bed Live read.
Adam is bringing up how his son will ask him who he’s rooting for and start joining him and going overboard.

Adam is back to how he was thinking about these two kids and their travels sans parents, Adam jokes about the two kids and the dog not being able to do much up against Ramses the terrorist he just made up.
Alison asks Adam if he did eat the Salmon, he says of course he ate every fucking bite, nice job clearing that up A-Rose.
BB brings up another twitter champ, this guy didn’t alert him to Willow and Jaden’s travel schedule, he just said that Adam got the better option because the lasagna was sans meat, Adam got the only meat on the plane.
Adam explains his rule about eating everything in 1st class, his consumption math for drinking and eating his way through the price of the ticket.
Adam is now asking everyone to hold on, he’s spinning and addresses the claims of it being a “Classic” lasagna.
BB says that meat make it Lasagna, he’s wrong to agree here, I’m a lifelong unwilling vegetarian and I always request Classic Cheese Lasagna, which is different that Classic Lasagna, one has meat or a meat sauce.
