    With the very mysterious and controversial firing of Nick Dipaolo on his own show I wanted dig up the story of how it actually got launched officially for those who are confused. This is the official origin of the NICK DIPAOLO AND ARTIE LANGE SHOW on DIRECTV as told by Nick and Artie on Jim Norton's RAW DOG show with Dave Attell as well.

    I feel bad for Nick if he got fired, and not too good about Artie.

    Interesting. Obviously this is from a while back, before they had the new studio, but it's almost prophetic how Artie is joking about how after Nick pitched the show to DirecTV, the president of the network called Artie and said "Nick is out! How'd you like to do a show with Tony Siragusa?"

    I'll shit bricks if the Goose is actually Artie's sidekick when the show comes back.


    Also, if I remember correctly, didn't Nick originally get the offer from Fox Sports and then Artie blabbed to TMZ and Fox squashed the deal? I think that's how they ended up with DirecTV anyway...

    And all of this Rick talk is relevant to an Artie forum, how....? :D

    I would bet that if there were going to be a true "co-host" right off the bat, we'd have heard something. It may well be like when Francessa and Russo split up, or rotating guests for awhile.
