I've had XM for about a week and a half now and have tried 202 "the virus" two times. The first time was Ron & Fez which I had on for about 3 minutes.

The second time I caught O&A and ran away after hearing their voices. Is it any surprise these guys have low ratings. One of them is a marginal radio personality, the other was an electrician or something who stumbled into the studio one day.

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!!

I think Goreds is a 411 guy. Not that you can't be both, but it isn't easy, and you have to be much quieter that I'd expect him to be!

Nah, he's both. Not that either one is a bastion of intelligence. I would imagine he's a god over there because he posts actual words instead of pictures. Sadly, the once great troll is reduced to mere links here at SBS. He's finally blown his load and has nothing left but a few grunts.

Best quote so far:

"Ratings have fallen because once people experience their show on FreeFM they go get XM to hear the full unedited version."

Followed by this:

"Judging from satrad subscriber additions last year, it looks like that once people experienced O&A on FreeFM they decided to go get Sirius to listen to Stern."

funny how everybody wanted to crucify David Lee Roth after one ratings book..his ratings were essentially the same, but he is a more high profile celebrity and his late night TV appearances would have been 1000 times better ( in the past Roth has been amazing on all the big late night talk shows)..if they would have stuck with DLR I think he could have found a new different audience...sure his show was terrible but he didnt have time to find any flow...

Howard should offer to do a terrestrial show for 3 months just to add insult to injury.

as well as banned.



these abysmal ratings just prove that terrestrial fm radio cant compete with the likes of satellite radio, the internet and mp3 players. As reported earlier just about every station is down in ratings so its not just an OnA thing which I know you guys want to make it and you have every right to, bad ratings are bad ratings.



People just don't listen to FM radio anymore.

Any idea why Tonyho got banned? He's always been offensive but he was always funny.

He is on a temporary 1 week ban for personal attacks. If he can't cool down and tone it down he will be banned permanently after that.
