Poor bastards. They just can't figure it out and I'm the supposed Zombie. Keep spreading the suck, bbbboys. Is there a default number of b's?

Not just that they had ''all of Howard's audience now'', but that they "STOLE all of his stations". Whatever it was that they stole, they couldn't cash it in.

Countdown to funeral in about 7 months.

OK, they improved slightly in Philadelphia, but it's nothing to crow about:

WYSP, Summer: 1.9, in 19th place
WYSP, Fall: 2.2, in 18th place

For comparison, in the Fall of '05 (with Howard), WYSP had a 4.2, in 5th place.


Detroit's ratings were also announced today. WKRK w/ O&A went from a 1.8, in 20th place, in the Summer book to a 1.7, still in 20th place, in the Fall book.

But CBS managed to cash in, sorta, when they sold off many of the stations they bought thanks to the money Howard brought in and were tanking cuz he left...


Hmm, Howard leaves testicle-less radio and the market takes a dive. Opie and HVACthony return to testicle-less radio and the market drops further... It's the O&A effect.

I'm sure they've been quite silent on how terrible they're doing. If you listen close I'm sure you can hear the bits of humble pie stuck in their throat.

Gotta love karma, eh?

One of the threads on wackbag that was linked and quoted here had the listeners waiting and waiting for them to discuss ratings. After all, O&A never shy away from talking about anything, even bad stuff . They are always honest and never make excuses . They were waiting, and waiting, and waiting and they are still wiating for the ratings subject to come up.

Guess all those statements about "honesty" and "we'll talk about anything" are about as truthfull as "O&A never lose!"

This is way too funny. Check out this thread about Dopie and AintFunny's bad ratings. Since the pests don't have any explanation for their b-b-boys bad showing, they start posting on every subject but that.

more fall ratings in:

In Boston, WBCN got a 2.6 rating (in 14th place), a slight uptick over the 2.5 they received in the summer. This is one market where OA are doing better than DLR (who brought 'BCN to a 1.9 rating) did. But again, they're much lower than when Howard was last on (3.5, in 9th place).

The boys are not doing quite as well in San Francisco. KIFR got a 0.6 (holding steady from the summer numbers), landing them in 34th place (!!!).

Do you have an idea who well Detroit did with Howard? I know his ratings weren't so hot (by that I mean, not number one or near there) but they were probably better than that.
I always thought Howard said he was number one in Philly, his best market? Guess not.

CHeck out this funny, semi-coherent remark from that O&A Board.

"I think it's funny who quickly people are jumping the gun on this. One bad book of numbers and you're already talking fired.

Get serious."

Didn't DLR get like one bad ratings book....Yeah, I think so!

Uhh, that's three bad books in a row, unless #18 constitutes a "good" book. These morons actually believe the demographic bullshit that is fed to them. Too bad they can't even claim demos anymore, because those are in the toilet too. Matter of fact, some of their most "important" demos are where they lost the most listeners.

Waddle doodle!! We even drive away the people who are supposed to like us!!

O&A - Finding new ways to suck every day!!

Perhaps they have an edict that prevents them from tackling any item that's not "newsworthy"?

In my book(and apparently in the Arbitron book as well) O&A aren't "newsworthy".

That's some funny stuff right there! They are like "avoid avoid avoid... FU *((*&$^^#$ Stern Groupie" but they have nothing to battle with, especially after this comment:

Let me add this to the end of my O&A fan imitation (Sorry my spelling and "grammer" is better "then" most O&A fans on XMFan ):

Well, they were never that big a draw on XM, because XM never advertised them, but we really don't know how many signed up for them, except they themselves said only 30,000, so that's why they went to Free FM, so more people would be attracted to their hour(s) on XM, where they are a #1 show, second only to Dylan, well definitely in the top 10, even though XM has no way of knowing how many listen, except they do polls, except the polls are informal, but the CEO of XM said it, so they are definitely in the Top 10, maybe even #1, second only to Dylan, even though they don't advertise them, except when they do in a country wide advertising blitz . . .

(**DeepBreaths**)

Uhhhhm, did I tell you that O&A are the #1 radio show in the country? Jay Leno said it, so it must be true.
