    To move them to afternoons? This seems like a bad move for Sirius anyway, stern barely works and there would be no morning show. I wouldn't put it past gobbler neck to be behind this.

    That's what Norton hinted at today.

    It is clear that Howard has pushed this move. They have been desperately trying to stop the exodus of listeners. They hired that new COO. They began this whole "All In" promotion. They have been taping into the Sirius pool of guests. They are trying to make a splash with this big Birthday Bash. It is all tied together.

    Moving O&A to the afternoons will give him less competition for listeners. It also gives listeners less alternatives on Thursdays and Fridays and all his other endless days off. I am sure they heard feedback that people were switching to O&A when he took most of the month of August off. Moving O&A out of the AM is the easiest way to stop that... well, other than actually doing more shows during the summer.

    "Clandestinely fucking with them."

    Yeah. Sabotage all the way.

    They had that survey asking people who quit subscribing if Howard's lack of programming was behind it.
    They must have heard from fans who have said...

    "Howard is on 6 times a month. Opie and Anthony Show is on 25 times a month. I don't have a fucking choice. If I want a male-orientated talk
    show in the morning, 19 days out of 25 I have to listen to Opie and Anthony. At a point when I'm already listening to 19 Opie and Anthony shows
    to 6 Howard Stern shows, why don't I just go all the way and listen to last 6 Opie and Anthony Shows?
    Plus, O&A are funnier and have a professional stand up and frequent stand up guests."

    This ends competition. This ends Stern Loses By Default 120 Times Out Of The Year.

    Not a fan of OandA but their guests blow Pelican's guests out of the water.

    My fave talker is Jay Thomas and here's hoping he comes back some day from neck surgery.

    Without that piece of shit Shuli. :up:

    Howard is a low-life, so it wouldn't surprise me that he is fucking with O and A behind the scenes.

    I think so too, but Opie seemed to not believe whatever Jim's theory was.

    I just don't understand why Sirius would want to sabotage O&A or stop them from picking up Howard's listeners. Even if O&A was on in the afternoon, there's still this huge morning void when Howard's not in. Listeners are going to find something else to listen to and they will develop a habit of it.

    And for the record, I didn't switch to O&A because of Howard's work schedule. I'd be happy to listen to only three days a week if the show was any good. But it's now unlistenable. If O&A are moved, morning commuters will now have nothing good to listen to. It really is a dumb move.

    It seems like a lot of you guys are into the morning entertainment/funny shows. I've always tended to be a news-in-the-morning guy and only switched over to Stern when I got Sirius in. . . '06?

    But I can see what you're saying.

    Who were Howard's guests yesterday? Opie and Jimmy goofed on Newt Gingrich during a live phone interview and then O&A bailed on Oliver Stone. The guests that they bail on are better than the ones Howard actually interviews. :facepalm:

    Any word on when Jay's coming back?

    Oh I listen to O&A in the evening. I haven't listened to morning radio since I stopped listening to Howard. But for the subscribers who like live talk in the morning, taking away O&A really gives them shitty options.

    Ripping off Gilbert's jokes, but those two are so awful that Simon Wiesenthal would call them kikes.

    Honestly, I can't name two more annoying, abrasive and unfunny assholes than Madison and that ugly bald fuck.

    I've rarely listened to OnA, but isn't one of their long-running themes that Wiggy clandestinely fucks with their careers? Yet they continue to poke the guy until he fucks with them again. You'd think the dumb asses would have learned their lesson.
