Robert Pattinson’s first TV appearance since KStew breakup attracts 1.8 million

When Robert Pattinson makes his first TV appearance since the love of his life was photographed two-timing him with her married “Snow White” director, 1.8 million watch.

The 1.8 million who saw a sadder, wiser, less vampire-ish, more Byronic Pattison tried hard to avoid eating ice cream, on Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show” Monday night, represent a slightly smaller crowd than the 1.9 million who tuned in on May 29 to see Jon Stewart play host to First Lady Michelle Obama.

“The last time I had a breakup, Ben & Jerry got me through some of the tougher times, so I thought you and I could bond over this, and talk about, ‘Boy, you are better off kicking her to the curb.’” Stewart said after pulling out two tubs of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream for them to eat.

Pattinson had shunned the spotlight since his “Twilight” co-star Kristen Stewart, admitted to having an affair, and chewed a little scenery, like this:

“This momentary indiscretion has jeopardized the most important thing in my life, the person I love and respect the most, Rob. I love him, I love him, I’m so sorry,”

“My biggest problem in life is I’m cheap – I didn’t hire a publicist,” Pattinson said when Stewart asked him what’s been happening.

“Normally actors get everything scripted [in interviews]…I’m going to hire a publicist.”

“Or, a time machine,” Stewart advised.
