Howard Stern Inspires Big Tips

Washington, D.C. -- Pizza drivers all over Washington, D.C., owe shock jock Howard Stern a big thanks.

That's because the night that Stern appeared on "The Late Show With David Letterman" was the biggest tipping day of the year for Dominos Pizza delivery drivers, beating out the day after the Boston Red Sox won the World Series and when Phil Mickelson won the Masters.

Other days weren't as good for tips. For instance, tips were the lowest on the day Martha Stewart was sent to prison and the night the USA Olympic Basketball Team lost.

However, the biggest pizza ordering day of the year was the opening night of the Olympics, followed by the day the Vice Presidential Debate took place.

Other saucy stats from the pizza people....

-- 69 percent of people with a hybrid vehicle in the driveway ordered meat-topped pizzas and were four times more likely to ask for extra cheese.

-- The night of the final episode of "Sex And The City" was the biggest for veggie-only pies.

-- Finally, Dominos reports a 38 percent increase in orders for pizzas with every topping possible during the "Survivor" season finale.
