The can't blame JV & Elvis. JV & Elvis are actually gaining listeners, not losing them. Put O&A's average numbers into the hour held by JV&E and their percentage per quarter hour of 1.6 suddenly jumps to a whopping 1.6.

Waddle doodle!! We're propping up JV and Elvis by steadily losing listeners!! Pretty soon they'll be at #21 too!!

Yeah, I like how they are "meaningless" when the ratings suck. You never hear the people in first place say "these numbers probably aren't accurate, we're probably tied with the #2 station."

I guess staying a day longer than HOward ont he air and that "special" that most stations refused to air live really helped!

I mean, apparently DLR did better...and you know they'll keep these fucks around to save face and they'll nuture them, but to no postive effect. That is excellent!

It's over Johnny . . .
I'm interested in hearing what Whoopi might sound like. I've already heard the train wreck that is O&A!

Anyone see this:

Opie and Anthony dropped from 3.1% of 25-54s to 2.4% and among 18-34s, they fell 4.1% to 3.1%. But new program director John Mainelli was overhauling the station this fall, and noted it will be two or three quarters before the effect of those changes is reflected in the ratings.
That wouldn't be the same John Mainelli who claimed there was absolutely "no conflict of interest" between his job as a radio consultant and his job of radio journalist for the Post after he trashed Howard and praised O&A, would it? Where the hell is Steve Langford: Ace Reporter when you need him?? Get Shuli and Crone in the smoke filled, crocodile-tear stained H100-News van and haul ass up to the former K-Rock studios for the grilling!!! Langford already delivered that guy's head on a pike, maybe Penny can serve up his balls!

Isn't that Joel's brother? I know Joel has a brother at CBS. Or maybe they mean Joel but mixed him up with Moonves.

I guess that's worse than being the bag...




So my question is when the "effects of the changes are seen in 2 to 3 quarters," does the rating system have the ability to register that low?

Only if the rising ratings of JV & Elvis are still there to prop up their 4th hour.

Wierd...Usually "OA" in a thread title attracts trolls. I wonder why they arent showing up? Maybe they are waiting for the official spin to be released so it becomes mindless rhetoric as to why the ratings are so low?

Obviously the JV and Elvis rehtoric doesnt work anymore...Or the claim that they had 90% of Howard's old audience...Maybe they can blame it on Whoopie or the FCC? Or maybe they can change their stance from taking 2 weeks "to Get" the show to a year and a half?
