actually ron and fez (friends of the show) were added to the xm202 lineup months before howard and bubba ever hit the satellite waves. Lazlow and patrice oneil were also doing saturday evening shows on 202 in 2005 as well.

Does any of this surpirse you? The funny thing is these guys and their fans will always try to find some excuse, demographic or any type of loophole to say otherwise. Howard's contract stipulated that he would have his own programming and wasannounced from the very beginning. Even Opie, in an interview posted by a "pest" here, made fun of Howard trying to do too much when he was asked about his contract and programming stipulation. But now that they are doing the SAME THING...Its suddenly different.

Oh, so this is really not news at all. O&A were doing this long before they changed the station to reflect their name and then started alternative programming to include specialty shows. This is absolutely nothing that would have XM put out a press release announcing a brand new Virus 202 Programming Schedule.

Uhhh . . . wait a minute . . . then what exactly was the XM press release for?

Kings?


1. Limbaugh 342,000
2. Hannity 322,900
3. Curts/Kuby 318,600
4. Imus 279,600
5. Gambling 257,100
6. Levin 245,700
7. Opie/Anthony 197,100
8. Savage 175,600
9. O'reilly 157,800
10.Ingraham 127,600
11.Al Franken 122,300
12.Randi Rhodes 115,300

Uhm.... yea, ok. I don't even know who Gambling, Levin or Curts/Kuby are but seems like all of them have more claim to "Kings of radio" than O&A.

I wonder where they got this idea?

"Also debuting on November 25th is "When the Mics Are Off," featuring exclusive off-air content, and "Best of The Walks," highlighting the favorite on-air moments from Opie and Anthony’s daily walk up to their XM Studios."

Well, they were the first to satellite... Too bad they didn't know what to do until Howard came and did it.


I know, I know, it's not about being first but being funny, so they still lose.


maybe they should do some cross-promoting with Imus. Didn't he have Anthony as a guest recently? I don't mean a guest on his show, but a guest at the cancer ranch...

True entertainers?? It's more like they have to struggle to build an audience and they can't afford to be anywhere out of their miniscule spotlight they've created for themselves. They are quickly forgettable, as shown by the incredibly slow rise in ratings. In fact it seems as though they've pretty much peaked. Nowhere but down from here.

Face it. They'll never reached Stern-status or accomplish half of what Stern has done.

Also, there were many talk shows on XM and Sirius before O&A and Howard. The difference is Howard created his own channel, two of them actually, and gave his fans 24 hours worth of "Stern World" programming for his fans to enjoy. Now that "daddy" has shown O&A how to do things once again, they're frantically trying to copy it and stay afloat.

Wig wearer?? Come on. Even the "pests" know thats an untruth and just a stupid insult to try and make. Much like the "hoo-hoo" garbage which is old as hell.

Hmmm, I see a trend. O&A + O&A fans = spewing same ol' tired sh*t.

GOOD NIGHT FOLKS! Be sure to tip your waitresses!!
