    Don't they know fans can do shitty impressions for free?

    Jim is a total waste of salary that Opie and Anthony could be keeping for themselves. Are they retarded?

    Jimmy brings more entertainment in one hour than an entire week of THSS.

    O n A like laughs more than needing to have ALL the marbles to themselves.

    jackie was right....look back now and see that Jackie was telling the truth.

    Artie zombie fans made the cardinal mistake of repeatedly telling Howard how the show misses Artie.

    Remember when the Stern show had even the small amount of energy it took to do this? And of course, Norton rules!

    They have Jim Norton in-studio because he is fucking hilarious.

    Unlike Howard, they remember that a legitimatel comedic voice is needed on air to provide additional laughs. They also remember that having additional comedians sit in for extended segments to shoot the shit is entertaining.

    I've been listening to them the last few weeks, the ONLY thing funny on their show is Jim...that's why they keep him around.

    Anthony can be very funny at times. True Opie isnt funny but the show is at its best when they are all there.

    Jimmy is one of the funniest guys on the radio and so is Anthony. He is genuinely funny.

    If it was the Anthony & Jim Show, it'd be the funniest radio broadcast, ever. That dull, embittered, inarticulate, perpetual-high-school-jock Opie, is the reason it'll never scale the lofty heights of, the once brilliant HSS. He is quite literally -- ballast. I suppose it's credit to Anthony for, showing such loyalty to his friend by not, dumping him long ago & becoming a nationally recognised, staggeringly wealthy, comedy star. I respect Anthony, hugely, for that act of kindness. But it's also why i'm not a listener.

    You're not a listener because you're an asshole. Opie isn't there to be funny. He operates the board.

    Then maybe, he should operate the board, while gagged?

    What's with that guy Chip Chipperson that comes by every once in a while? He's not funny at all.
