    Yesterday, Jim was in a mood. He spoke very little, was completely silent through the DL Hughley interview and only broke his silence and explained a little bit of where his head was at near the end.

    Jim explained he had beef with DL and disagreed with his booking. DL apologized for his past actions (something about flaking on Jim's pilot an hour before shooting) and they seemed cool.

    Norton tagged his diatribe with chides like "I'm just a guest on this show now like you" (to DL) and when Opie suggested it was better to talk to someone you have a grudge with instead of letting it continue to fester, Norton calmly retorted "Yeah, but YOU don't don't ever do that.."

    Later that night, Opie tweeted he and Norton had disagreed over a porn star booking Jimmy wanted. Opie said no dice, Jimmy was pissed.



    Around the same time, people noticed all the social media related to "Opie with Jim Norton" had been rebranded simply "Opie Radio Show".

    When asked why Jimmy was being downgraded, Opie tweeted it was at Jim's request.



    Now, today, Twitter is all alight that Opie & Jim had it out on the air yet again today and are set to have a "meeting".

    I missed hear the live broadcast; will have to catch up later today..

    Did anyone here listen and can give a rundown of what's what?

    Anyone else have an opinion of the sad state of the Opie & Jim Show? IMHO, Jimmy's been phoning it in for months.

    When I listened to the O & A show at the end, it was unlistenable. Jim is a really funny guy and Opie isn't.

    I vaguely heard a bit of it this am.... going to listen to the replay. They've had issues between them forever it seems.

    Norton always said he wasn't going to re-sign when his contract is up in October. Sounds like it's hitting the wall early.

    Wonder if Opie will seriously try to move forward alone on the show or if he'll try to find another comic in Oct. I'm not an Opie fan, but I do like listening to a round table of comics on the radio.

    Opie is unbearable to work with and Norton is a bit of a baby. There's no buffer with Anthony gone so now they're fighting with each other.

    Opie will try to fit in one of their regular shitty comics like Destafano or Sherrod once Norton leaves and the shitty radio show will continue.

    I thought Jim wasn't there during the D.L. interview. I didn't know that he just wasn't talking. Wow, how sad. The last time he and Opie fought, Jim said he was out in October.

    What very little I know about that show, it seems that everyone thinks the Opie guy is a dork and impossible to get along with. I know that Cumia guy hated his guts for a long time before he was fired. Norton is the only glimmer of gold in that turd bowl.

    Don't listen to their show, but maybe Jim shouldn't be in radio. If Jim would of played ball this could of been a really good segment for their show.

    Get ready for the Opie and Vic show everyone :shitcoffee:

    If Jim isn't gone in October he's truly just a chinless worm just doing it for the paycheck.
