You guys are reading this wrong.
They were able to lower Roth's numbers, That has got to be one of the toughest things to do in radio, it truely takes talent beyond what the average human could comprehend. I highly doubt that very few other radio shows could do that. The fact they did it should make any pest proud.

Can we finally, finally, finally put to rest the notion that these guys were ever held back from their full potential by anything Howard did or said? Looks like the only thing Howard held them back from was from realizing just how fucking awful they are. They got a 2 book bounce after DLR during which they could attract new listeners and they only thing they did was drive the listeners they already had away!! They pull off the greatest moment in radio history, they "sit in his chair", they "get to talk to all his listeners" and they end up driving them away to the Spanish channel? What a bunch of maroons. Christ, even Imus will be dumping his unholy alliance with them, just out of pure embarrassment.

My advice to Les Moonves, bring back DLR! At least he didn't lose ratings (he just never had them in the first place).

If you really want to laugh, go read wackbag. Even those marks are admitting that O&A are done on CBS.

Man I know it won't happen, but I'm tempted to ask DAB to bequeath un-banned status on ol' xzi. The thermonuclear meltdown we could extract from him in about 3.5 posts would be the fireworks show of the century. I truly think he would explode into atomic dust, eventually reappear as a glowing visage and then start posting in tongues.

There's a thread about the ratings over on XM411 and it's getting crickets for a response. The fanboys have left the building.

You won't see anything official until CBS figures out it's spin. The Arbitrons are sold to the stations and any release is through the stations themselves or a leak. But this guy seems to have a good rep for the truth at Sniffen's Site. I love this quote from one of the drones:

Quote:
DLR's show had not yet purged itself of all of the Stern listeners. That would have happened if they let it slide a few more books. They had to stop the bleeding, and that is what O&A were brought in to do. Now they must build. The show is a different show than when it was on WNEW. Morning radio is different as well. No spin, just facts.
Holy crap, now the reason they're getting DLR numbers is because CBS didn't leave Roth in long enough to fail even "worser"? So a 1.6 would be great if they only let Roth stay on long enough to get a 0.8 (which ironically corresponds with O&A's share in Detroit )? If Roth was "bleeding" at #22, O&A are a friggin hell of a tourniquet at #21!!

As Tonyho says, "Kill yourself, please!"

One difference, Roths 22 was if i remember a 1.8, which is still better then a 1.6.
With Xm tanking with new subs they dont even have that to say. I bet its another in a long line of subjects not talked about on the most young edgy honest show.

"Waddle Doodle!! We can beat DLR's rankings with even less listeners!! Now all we need to do is wait for Imus to drop below 1.6 and we'll be "beating" him too!!"

Cbs wont release the #'s unless the have it out to rid themselves of the joke they only hired cause they thought it would piss off Howard, they will just try to bury it for now.

How long before the greatest radio show that never was try to do something stupid again to get fired so they can disappear back into the obscurity that they were on xm.

Waddle doodle, time to kill ourselves again before it becomes common knowledge we really are nothing, waddle doodle!
