These Norton episodes worth downloading? I always said I'd enjoy him as long as I didn't have to hear "O&A".
But it sounded from the comments that it's mostly The Ritchie Show now?
Still barrelling through Bill Burr over here...
last night's had a really awkward feel. i only watched the intro, ff'd first segment with kinky boots, zoned out during the deadliest catch guy, and haven't resumed the rest of it. it was almost exclusively ritchie, and he's as dumb and slow as ever. it is so unsettling to watch ritchie's eyes roll into the back of his head when he's speaking (happens frequently)
it seems like norton is just there to help a little while ritchie drives the show (crashing it into a parked car at a drivethru and flipping it)
It's almost completely guest dependent. Deadlist crab guy was the only decent interview last night. They spent some time on Bocchetti, which means they spent too much time on Bocchetti. Hopefully they actually take some calls tonight so they don't have to go to Mike at all.
I noticed the blob laughing real loud last night hoping they would pay attention to him.
no ritchie tonight??
Jim Norton got a taste of why Artie does drugs. Listening to that dumb fuck Ritchie trying to bring up football in every conversation was even more noticeable with a different host. Artie can make him shut up, i don't think Norton realized until it was too late just how dumb Ritchie really is
Even though I laughed at the first line, Norton has been on at least 3 times. He stayed for the full hour each time, so he was exposed to Ritchie's dichotomous brain (he's a smart enough fellow, but doesn't process words fast enough...especially when he's on air). I think he even took shots at how slow Ritchie was speaking before.
Ritchie got into broadcasting to be a football analyst. The guy is just not suited to host a show. He should be on NFL network on one of the football geek shows where they break down film. It baffles me to this day why DirecTV thought he was a good fit for the ALS. Artie's lack of hosting skills coupled with his poor attendance make it more baffling. A professional host should have been hired.
Some guy with one of those Stephen Hawking voice things would be easier to listen to
Arthur replied to me on Twitter, I'm shocked and amazed.
damn they shut down ritchie for the night lolol
They shitcanned Ritchie but kept the vortex of comedy in the studio?
I guess this is another attempt at doing on-air personality tryouts. I'll kill myself before Mannix and Norton host a show together. Norton is fine...it's just Chris "Il Douche" Mannix.
I wonder if this is the start of a phase out of the show. Artie Monday, Ritchie Tuesday, Slowcchetti tomorrow, and the show entirely on Thursday. Also if Ritchie wanted to get on the NFL Network, or a half decent show as an analyst, he should shave off that dumb fucking goatee.
i don't like mannix either but my brain thanks me for not subjecting it to ritchie tonight.
norton went from not saying anything last night to overcaffeinated rambling tonight
I will take a douche who can actually speak over slow speaking English major any day
I wish they would have asked Bochetti if he has ever been catfished
