    monday sounded like a dr. phil show.
    tuesday we learned talking about bad radio equals bad radio.
    switching between stern and o&a it was hard to figure out which was worse.

    Anthony = Howard + Jackie + Billy West. The true talent of the show. Opie is very good at keeping them on track and introducing new segments. Norton is the best person to lead interviews on the show. But filling up air time with conversational topics like current events or just general banter...the show is deadly awful without Anthony. They had Joe DeRosa on yesterday and I turned it off until the After Show. When Anthony is gone they need only Louis CK, Vos, or DiPaolo to sit in now that Patrice is dead.

    Not fair to judge on a week when Anthony isn't in.

    been a listener since pre-xm days. i agree it's not fair to judge the show when anthony's out because opie is even horrible when anthony's there. opie talks about doing a podcast, who would listen to that:facepalm:

    Opie, Papa, Jimmy and Sam make for a good show. I know they had that lineup several times in May and June.

    Or Opie, Colin, Bobby, and Jimmy.

    There's quite a few shows without Anthony that worked out really well in the last year or so.

    i agree it's great when there's so much going on that opie can't chime in.

    I was a little bummed Anthony wasn't in for The Governor today, as he's the big Walking Dead fan and got along great with Andrew Lincoln.

    The only thing they need Opie for is to say (when Anthony and Jimmy are there) is: "time to take a break, we'll be right back."

    It's a shame that more people won't give funny radio a chance. Finally gave up on Howard about 6 months ago, he only wishes he could have somebody as funny as Jimmy on his show. Jimmy is also one of the best I've heard at interviewing people. I've heard some clips on Worst Of were Opie is funny but he is nothing compared to Anthony, Jim, or the comedians that come to help.

    This. I gave up earlier than you. Been listening a year, every show isn't a home run, but I am happy 90 percent of the time.

    Same here. This week hasn't held my interest so far but I tried Howard too just for the hell of it and I couldn't make it 10 minutes. Some days I just like to listen to music.

    At this point I would choose silent transcendental meditation over Howard. Opie might not be as funny as Ant and Jim but at least he is still connected with the regular person.

    Anthony is an unbelievable talent, jimmy is a little jealous bitch. Some of the best shows I've heard was just opie and Anthony shooting the shit with no jimmy.
