  1. Assuming they come back from vacation after Easter, there should be some good stuff re: Imus.

    I just assumed they were off next week. He'll miss the Imus story liked he missed the Anna Nicole story.
    two weeks in a row?
    You're surprised by this? The money's guaranteed and his hardcore fans will stick by him no matter what. Why wouldn't he take advantage of every perk that comes his way?
  2. Looking forward to it. But please David Chase: No more lame, self-important dream sequences. We get it: Tony's a deep character. Just go with an intriguing storyline and perhaps a few twists (like the awesome Junior shoots Tony shocker in Season 6, Part I, ep 1). You've done it before, you can do it again.

    Oh, and if possible:

    NO MORE F'N PUKING!!!!

  3. Stern fans:

    Watching Dice Undisputed where Dice returns to Howie's show. What the F@#% is up with Ronnie the Limo driver having his face blurred out? Does he actually think he's that important or did VH1 simply forget to have the papers signed?!?

  4. For any Opie and Anthony fans out there I met Jim Norton yesterday when he came into the restaurant I work at. The place was empty except for him and I suppose his manager. I recognized him right away and told him what a huge fan I am of his. I've never heard the radio show but his recent HBO special is pantheon good. I told him that but he was like, "No way." He's playing at the Improv in my city this weekend and I told him how I was thinking about getting tickets. At that point his manager just asked for my name and said he would leave tickets for me at the window. Pretty sweet. I was dying to ask him a bunch of questions but resisted and let him eat his lunch. I walked by many times hoping he would engage me in conversation but he and his manger seemed to be talking business.

    His manager asked me if I listen to O&A but I told him I was a Stern disciple and that Stern was the only radio personality that I've ever listened to long term. I felt like telling him what a crumby job he is doing with a talent like Norton. Norton should be much bigger. He is physically funny too so it's not hard to imagine him doing films. Not starring but at least something.

    Good story. Many will say Norton makes the O&A Show (although it was gold before he became a regular and before they had a regular 3rd mic.) I enjoy him a lot and think he's a riot live. Also seems very down to earth and always makes time for the fans.

    Norton is also faithfully loyal. He wasn't one of the comedians that did Stern's show during O&A's forced sabbatical (Patrice O'Neal, Colin Quinn - that's right. He was with O&A long before he started doing Stern's show). In addition, he's best friends (and former roommates) with Jim Florentine, a Stern regular and even then, he never bailed on his loyalty to the O&A Show.

    Nice to hear you had a good experience and you didn't try to rile him up in some way.

    Tell you the truth it probably isn't the best career move to not do Stern. If you become a regular it can be a real boon for you career.

    Norton is a tremendous stand-up comedian while Artie is just average. Artie is doing shows in front of 2-3k while Norton could not sell out the Improv I was at the other night. 300 people maybe which is a real shame. Becoming a regular on the Stern show would definetly help and whoever gets Artie's seat will probably take off too. Pretty sure it will be Fitzsimmons, he's terrific on the show.

    While I agree that Stern used to have the bigger audience and that Norton could have benefited from it, he's doing just fine while staying loyal to his buddies (unlike the guy that introduced him to O&A, Andrew Dice Clay, but that's another story...)

    Norton is doing just fine w/o having done Stern. He may not have done a big gate at the Improv, but he does 4-8 shows every weekend across the world (including a sellout at the Borgata on New Year's Eve). He killed as the headliner of O&A's record-breaking "Traveling Virus Comedy Tour" last summer and will headline again. He had a starring role on HBO's Lucky Louie. He's working on his 2nd full-length HBO special. And most of all, staying loyal kept him as the official 3rd mic of two ultra-popular and successful radio shows (O&A on terrestrial and XM Satellite).

    Now you compare Artie's crowds compared to Norton's and you may have a point. But I'd argue that Norton is a far more successful stand-up comedian than Jim Florentine, who isn't a member of the show but a Stern regular. You may overestimate what a Stern appearance can do for a career. You really think people are knocking down doors to get Rev. Bob Levy or Yucko the Clown?!?

    I got one word to say to you...

    "Who?"

    Jim Norton, an extremely funny comedian who is the "3rd mic" on Opie & Anthony. You probably didn't hear of him because he never did Stern's show.

    Actually, that's not meant to be a shot. If you follow the stand-up world or listen to O&A, you should know who Norton is. If you don't and only listen to Stern, then "who" is an appropriate response.

  7. OK, I've got to admit, after reading the Marks Friggin recap for Tuesday's show, I actually wished I had access to the Stern show for once. Would have loved to hear the Jackie segment.

    Here's my question for those who listened: Was Fred making everyone as uncomfortable as it came off in the recap? Did he really rip into Jackie with authentic hatred, or was he just busting balls?

  8. Still waiting for the proof that Howard invented WOW by telling his fans in Washington to tie bandanas to their car antennaes so girls will flash! :lmao:

    Of coarse you are. Because you're more obsessed with him than any one of his fans.
    Just giving another example of his rampant lies and paranoia that someone will steal his spot.

    And amazing: Didn't mention Opie & Anthony. Just talked about Stern being absolutely insane and believing every day he invented another idea that takes off. Yet, nobody addresses it. There's a reason the term "Stern Zombies" exist.

    Because, we don't hang on his every word like you do. Keep obsessing over it, it's good for you.
    Good defense mechanism. I'm sure it works wonders at the playground.
    What am I defending? You focus more on what he says than his regular fans do. It's creepy.
    You don't focus on it because you apparently believe it!

    I heard the clip on another radio show today. Originally, I thought the hosts were just going to exaggerate but then they played the audio. I couldn't believe he wanted credit for yet another idea. I wanted to see if other Stern fans (in this thread) would at least chime in and say "yeah man, he's lost it" but apparently he gets a pass.

  11. Howard Stern actually said today that he invented the Fox game show "Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader?" He wants a producer credit and feels he deserves money from the creators for stealing his idea. Wow. Just....wow!He also said XM is in trouble because they wasted $55M on Oprah. He's rolling Sirius for nearly $1 BILLION (salary, bonuses, and stock), takes off 1/4 of the year, doesn't work Fridays, and gives his audience crappy secondary programming (Bubba and Scott Ferrall) because he can't get other talent to do a show!!! Yeah, he brought people over to Sirius, but not all 6 million to 7 million as he claims!How can anybody say he isn't delusional at this point? He really does think he invented everything!!! Do his hardcore fans really sit back and think "you're so right, Howard. I remember when you came up with the idea for the telephone. That Graham Bell guy was such a ripoff artist!"

    You are really tuned in to all things Howard, for somebody who seems to hate him.
    :rolleyes: BTW, Stern did play that game a loooong time ago..
    Right. Just like every other morning show throughout the 80s that played the "can you beat the grade schooler/homeless guy/stripper/foreigner". Still waiting for the proof that Howard invented WOW by telling his fans in Washington to tie bandanas to their car antennaes so girls will flash! :lmao:
  12. Who heard Bubba say he would have to beat opie and anthonys ### if he has to deal with them down the road? Funny

    And you actually believe him? He tried this schtick once before.

    Bubba: You name the time and the place. I'll fight you anywhere you want.

    Opie: Fine. This Friday, Hard Rock Cafe. We're doing the show live from there.

    Bubba: Oh, that day doesn't work for me. I can't find anyone to watch my kid.

    :rolleyes:

    Defend Howie all you want. But Bubba is the biggest joke this side of Greaseman. You do know that just two years ago Howard said "I don't want to work with or be associated with anyone named 'Bubba the Love Sponge?' Amazing what a brown nosing session will do for ya!

  14. Howard Stern is set for a reunion - of sorts - with his former sidekick Jackie (the Joke Man) Martling.

    Insiders say Stern will announce on his show next week that Martling has scored his own program on Sirius, the satellite radio network Stern has called home since January.

    "Martling's show will debut mid-October," says a source.

    Stern and Martling parted ways on strained terms after 15 years in 2001, when the Joke Man couldn't reach a contract agreement with their mutual employer.

    Martling said through his rep he has "no news" about a new radio show just yet.

    From the News gossip page.

    Wow, very interesting news here. I was a big Jackie fan and basically all but stopped listening to Stern besides the News, after he left the show. Not sure how he would do on his own show though. Will it be on Stern's channel?
    If the rumor is true (I'm not buying it yet), I'd think he'd be on Howard 101. I don't forsee him replacing BtLS or Ferrel.
    Not ripping, just asking: The Ferrel show couldn't possibly have a following, does it? I know he was painful to listen to on Opie & Anthony back in the day. And from the clips they played of his Sirius shows, I can't imagine Stern fans are tuning into this combination of senseless rambling and ignoring negative calls.
  15. And I ask the question back to you: Why do hardcore Stern fans (and Stern) insist on O&A being "failures" when EVERYTHING is going their way right now? And that's a serious question. Forget your O&A bias. If all of us were 1/10th the failures these guys are now, we would all be very lucky.

    Hate to break it to ya man, and this has nothing to do with me not knowing who they are and being annoyed by you, but as someone who has worked in tri-state area radio for the last 10 yrs, this venture has not worked out very well for anybody involved
    Hmmm...their ratings are great. They get new markets every day. Their comedy tour (with the final show tonight in Cleveland) has been a rousing success (culminating in one of the most popular YouTube videos to date, the Bill Burr vs. Philly rant). They have a national TV commercial. Hugh Panero, the CEO of XM, said O&A are directly responsible for a huge base of "new" subscribers (which means that people enjoy the FreeFM show enough to pay for the uncensored part of the show). They get fantastic guests on a daily basis.Not sure what role you have in radio, but apparently, they keep you in a cube that turns a blind eye to the truth. Either that, or CBS has a really weird way of hiding their failures.
    Where do I start?1 Ratings are FAR from great, unless you have extremely low standards. Poor KRock will never, ever see ratings like they did when they had the King2 Id almost gurantee that most people that dont listen loyally, had no idea they had a comedy tour3 Youtube? You gotta be kiddin me4 Nat'l tv spot? For what? Who would even know?5 XM getting new subscribers? You sure you want to break that one out man? :lmao: 6 Name some of these "fantastic guests"....Cant wait to hear all these a-list names you roll off. Im sure everyone in tv and film is running to the opie and anthony show to promote their latest project. You love the show, you love these guys, thats cool...enjoy. But dont come into a Stern thread and ever imagine you can make a fair comparison....thats just ridiculous
    Congratulations! You managed to note six things I said without making a single point. How are their ratings not great considering they have only been on terrestrial for four months? Even your hero couldn't vault to #1 in less than half a year. Hate to tell you, but you don't get additional markets regularly if you suck.Number two shows what a biased tool you're acting like just because you're a Stern fan. You "almost guarantee that most people don't listen loyally". Are you for real? So not only does Stern tell you how to think, but you can actually read the people that tune in to their terrestrial & XM shows and know for a fact that they don't do it because they like it? Wow. Just...wow.They mentioned a video on YouTube briefly that has gotten over 100K hits in less than three weeks. What's so hard to understand about that? Meanwhile, if the Stern fan in this thread didn't post the Elliot Offen clips, I wouldn't even know they existed on YouTube.Wow, you're quite in the "radio know." They have a national TV commercial for all of their major markets promoting the 3-hour terrestrial radio show. Runs during NFL games and primetime TV. Surprised someone with your rich radio background didn't hear anything about that. And you don't need to have heard about their comedy tour - the one that has packed thousands into arenas to watch stand-up comedy. Since Stern didn't attach his name to it, it obviously didn't succeed.Yes, I do want to bring up the XM thing. If you can use Howie math to believe every Sirius subscriber is a Stern listener, than by his calculations, O&A have more satellite listeners than Stern since XM has more subscribers.Which guests? Hmmm....Samuel L. Jackson, Edward Norton, Korn, Mark Burnett, Donald Trump (but, wait, he's Howie's buddy. How could he be on O&A and offer to take him on his private jet like he does with Howie? He must have been forced by CBS like Letterman was!). Meanwhile, I hear Howard had Andrew Dice Clay on the show. How...revolutionary!The more you try and protect your hero, the more ridiculous you sound. Tell me more about these radio sources that can document O&A are failures.You want to end this once and for all? Fine. I'm an O&A fan (and a former Stern fan). You're a Stern fan. I had no right invading this thread with pro-O&A/anti-Stern sentiments. That's fine. But I'm going to rebut when you spread obvious lies and gibberish nonsense about something you obviously know nothing about.Unless you have other myths I feel like dispelling, I won't post again in this thread. Enjoy your show.

    I am a west coaster and have never heard of opie and andy, this is not schtick. I guess that they are not out here on the west coast? :confused: or maybe they are just not up in the bay area or so cal. That alone means they are not syndicated to 2 of the larger west coast markets which to me means they are nowhere near Howards kingdom.
    They were syndicated to San Fran a few weeks ago. Syndication isn't a fast process. You think Stern did it overnight? O&A were nationally syndicated before. They have a proven product. The only thing they don't have is overwhelming trust that they won't screw up again.

  18. I work in radio in the tri-state area, have for the last 10 yrs. The dopey and anthony thing has not gone well for anybody, however it is an improvement over diamond Dave.And they were pushed on Letterman, if you dont think so you are just in denial

    Dude, you could be the most delusional person on the planet. No joke. "not gone well for anybody"? "pushed on Letterman"? Are you f'n insane?!?
  19. If it's not working out, why did terrestrial buy the rights to broadcast them? And why have they now been syndicated to over a dozen major markets? I can understand if you don't think they're funny, but their careers are extremely successful right now.

    DLR was syndicated too. :mellow: One question for the o and a guy's. If Stern went back to normal radio, would you consider his Sirius stint a failure?
    I don't consider his Sirius stint a failure now. He still has a hardcore fan base and apparently, they are happy with the show. But he now reaches barely 1/10th of the audience, O&A have the bigger audience like it or not (the numbers don't lie), and he's not the "pioneer of satellite radio" he tells everyone he is. He's doing what he wants now, but he's following in O&A's footsteps (see the uncensored Pat O'Brien tapes that they played 8 months before his "exclusive").And I ask the question back to you: Why do hardcore Stern fans (and Stern) insist on O&A being "failures" when EVERYTHING is going their way right now? And that's a serious question. Forget your O&A bias. If all of us were 1/10th the failures these guys are now, we would all be very lucky.
  20. Take that Opie & Anthony! where is your heroine addict boys?

    Give them a week. They'll find one.
    Vos was a crackhead a long time ago. :shrug:

    Hoo hoo, I invented opium Robin.

    I'm responsible for every single dollar that enters the U.S. economy, just like I'm responsible for every satellite radio subscription. Tell 'em Fred.

    Bigger than cell phones! The delusional ##### actually told his audience, "Bubba says I'm growing bigger than cell phones!"

    :lmao::lmao::lmao::lmao::lmao:

    Still waiting for him to step up and actually defend his daughter like any other normal parent would instead of just referring to her as a "good kid".

    Don't you have a 2 page O&A thread somewhere to hide in?
    How can you continue to defend him with all the lies he spews out on a daily basis? Seriously! I used to be a Stern fan until I learned what a ##### he was and some of the things he tries to take credit for. Without exaggeration:

    1. Every satellite radio subscription

    2. Ozzy Osbourne's reality show

    3. Opie & Anthony's WOW promotion (I have yet to hear one Washington DC resident confirm that this is a takeoff on an alleged "bandana tied around a car antenna")

    4. Being he first to play the Pat O'Brien tapes

    5. The first to be offered a simultaneous terrestrial/satellite gig

    Plus, it's very hypocritical of him to talk about being silenced and how he's a free speech advocate when he hid from the world that he did indeed impose a gag order on Opie & Anthony when they all worked at Infinity.

    And you gotta love how he only sees one side of the story. He insists that O&A only sold 30,000 subscriptions when they were a $1.99/mo. add-on service. Yet, when confronted in the past week that his Sirius numbers are at the most one million, he said "how do you know? Satellite sub numbers aren't made available to the public. You're making stuff up to slam me!"

    :lmao:

    If a five year $500 million dollar contract to do radio doesn't equal scoreboard I don't know what does. Satellite radio is going to be huge. Everyone who has it raves about it. I can't imagine not having it. Howard is not the reason satellite is going to be huge but he is the reason Sirius will eventually pass XM to become the dominant provider. And that is history.
    So why does he keep dropping hints that he's returning to terrestrial?

    He has more money than O&A put together, so what? O&A are getting press, they're on Letterman, and frankly, people are forgetting about Stern.

    I've listened to both for a long time. At his best, Stern was pretty amazing. But even the most rabid fan has to admit that the best days are behind him. Truthfully, I think O&A's show is a half-notch worse since the Syndication Now days, but it's still better than Stern.

    And Kidd Chris' show is better than both. :thumbup:

    WHAT HINT? Are you for real?

    Why do you think these clowns were on Letterman? You think it might have something to do with it being the same company, and the radio idiots trying to push something that really hasnt worked out?

    If it's not working out, why did terrestrial buy the rights to broadcast them? And why have they now been syndicated to over a dozen major markets? I can understand if you don't think they're funny, but their careers are extremely successful right now.

    As for the Letterman appearance, Dave brought it up. It would've been lame for them to attack Howard out of nowhere, and it would've been lame to duck any questions about it. They answered the questions, got some laughs, and the interview continued. :shrug:

    Not true! Not true! Howie told me it sucked; therefore it sucked! They are failures because he and the Stern Zombies say so.
  21. Take that Opie & Anthony! where is your heroine addict boys?

    Give them a week. They'll find one.

    I'm responsible for every single dollar that enters the U.S. economy, just like I'm responsible for every satellite radio subscription. Tell 'em Fred.

    Bigger than cell phones! The delusional ##### actually told his audience, "Bubba says I'm growing bigger than cell phones!"

    :lmao::lmao::lmao::lmao::lmao:

    Still waiting for him to step up and actually defend his daughter like any other normal parent would instead of just referring to her as a "good kid".

    Don't you have a 2 page O&A thread somewhere to hide in?
    How can you continue to defend him with all the lies he spews out on a daily basis? Seriously! I used to be a Stern fan until I learned what a ##### he was and some of the things he tries to take credit for.
    What don't you get? O&A latch onto this lying schtick because they have nothing else. The show is 2nd rate, the hosts are 2nd rate, and their fans are 2nd rate.

    This is not the O&A thread. It's clear that this is not the place for your silly little debates. Go the #### away.

    :bye:

    Way to answer the questions. Typical Stern fan. Drink the Kool Aid and ignore the truth while your hero pretends it's still 1992.

    They don't latch onto schtick. It's documented facts!

    2nd rate? :rolleyes: Anthony himself is funnier than everyone on Stern's show and there isn't a comedian doing stand-up today funnier and wittier than Jim Norton.

    I'll leave you know to your world of delusion in your little Stern thread. Enjoy the show tomorrow. Oh, wait a minute...

    Seriously man, i am a fan of both, you sound like an idiot here. You are not doing them any favors.
    I sound like an idiot for speaking the truth? OK.
  22. Take that Opie & Anthony! where is your heroine addict boys?

    Give them a week. They'll find one.

    How can you continue to defend him with all the lies he spews out on a daily basis? Seriously! I used to be a Stern fan until I learned what a ##### he was and some of the things he tries to take credit for. Without exaggeration:

    1. Every satellite radio subscription

    2. Ozzy Osbourne's reality show

    3. Opie & Anthony's WOW promotion (I have yet to hear one Washington DC resident confirm that this is a takeoff on an alleged "bandana tied around a car antenna")

    4. Being he first to play the Pat O'Brien tapes

    5. The first to be offered a simultaneous terrestrial/satellite gig

    Plus, it's very hypocritical of him to talk about being silenced and how he's a free speech advocate when he hid from the world that he did indeed impose a gag order on Opie & Anthony when they all worked at Infinity.

    And you gotta love how he only sees one side of the story. He insists that O&A only sold 30,000 subscriptions when they were a $1.99/mo. add-on service. Yet, when confronted in the past week that his Sirius numbers are at the most one million, he said "how do you know? Satellite sub numbers aren't made available to the public. You're making stuff up to slam me!"

    :lmao:
