Wow, so no one's even doing nightly show threads anymore?

    I'm a few weeks behind on the show. Has it gotten that bad?

    Basically, yes.

    Ritchie is non-stop involved, the guests are almost exclusively terrible, and the fake phone calls praising ritchie or bocchetti have become way too frequent.

    It seems even arm has taken a hiatus from calling.

    The show usually goes through up and down swings. Lately, it seems to be going full speed downhill.

    Someone even posted a YT vid (thread on the Howard forum) from like last night of Artie apparently nodding off again during the Brian Jones segment; poor dude, such crazy scrutiny

    So is this show going to be the end of Artie's broadcasting career? The guy is comedy gold on the air, but he's been handcuffed and can't even be himself anymore. (Unless he has evolved into PC-Artie:facepalm:) If DTV doesn't renew the show, what will he do after? There's no way he'll do a podcast, unless someone pays him. If he's working for someone else, the same thing will happen all over again. What company would have the balls to pay Artie to do a podcast or radio show while giving him complete control over the show? It would be awesome if he started up his own show, maybe subscription based? I don't know about you guys, but I'd gladly pay for an Artie Lange podcast if it was the same style as the old N&A shows. Thing is though, he's so lazy that he wouldn't want to do any of that work. He still needs someone to prepare everything, guests, topics, etc., so he can just show up and start talking. So most likely that's not happening either.

    It would be great to hear uncensored Arite again. And I don't mean being able to say the F-word. So fucking irritating how politically correct this country is becoming.

    Artie is done, after this show is cancelled he will fade away and people will be doubling on him in the office dead pool :(

    I think he will do a podcast sporadically just to sell tickets to his comedy shows. He still makes like 40-60 k a gig. So to survive, pay his mortgages, and keep his G$F he will probably have to do at least like 2 to 3 shows a month. Adam carolla and Joe rogan both sell out theaters mostly based on their podcasts. IMO Artie is a much better stand up than both. Also artie should be capable of getting some sponsors you would think if yet again Joe rogan and Adam corolla can. I will give you that both Adam and Joe have work ethic which Artie completely lacks. So he will need like 2 to 3 lackeys to do all the show prep and probably even to come to him.

    Why do people keep saying the show will be canceled? It won't. As much as the show sucks, it's probably cheap to produce and gets enough ratings to stay on the air. You'll never hear the show again as it was when they first started the show. Those first two months were pure gold.

    I don't think it will be cancelled before the end of the contract, that's for sure. The show will end eventually though, and from a fan's perspective if this will be the last regular broadcasting gig Artie has it will be a real letdown.

    And yes I realize it's all about the $$$ and Artie probably doesn't give a fuck about what the fans think as long as he gets paid 500,000 a year to work fifteen hours a week.

    I wonder if Directv is interested in ratings or if they just want a show to fill that time. Who would have known back in October 2011 that we were listening to the best of what the show had to offer.

    Even when they would mention the move to Directv it sounded exciting but they quickly killed anything we liked about the show. I was listening to the first few shows and Artie is making racial jokes and it's hilarious. They could never do that now.

    Was it the plan the whole time to build an audience of hardcore fans with the Premiere studio days hilarity, and then try to bring that audience to the Directv studio mediocrity? There were numerous times before the change of Nick making comments with the disclaimer that he wouldn't be able to say the same thing when they went to TV. Even here at Dawg's before the move we speculated whether or not the show would be toned down.

    I don't think Directv even cares about hardcore fans or any of that stuff.

    I really want to know one thing though, what happened to some of the early callers like Gonzo? Did they bail out on the show?

    I asked Steve from Queens (Gonzo) on twitter to start calling into the show again. He favorited the tweet, but no response. His use of the phrase "colored girl" would be frowned upon nowadays.

    As for hardcore fans, I'm sure in the beginning they counted on all of us to build that audience. Now though, they don't give a fuck what the fans think.

    I don't even think there is a big audience to be honest. I wonder how many people listen to the show online. I know they were on a radio station in Miami and they got dropped.

    I've barely heard 10 shows since Nick left. Ken Cole fucked the whole show up with his parade of faggot hipster bands and lame guests. And who the fuck is this Ritchie? He looks like AJ from the sopranos after shitting his pants.

    Nick & Arite in the old studio was awesome. I still have it in constant rotation on my mp3 player.

    So they're using Kreigel to sell boxing on DTV again? Show is getting to be one big advertisement.

    Haha, Artie- "Chanel- whats her name?"
