Good for them. They are a quality show. It's a shame they can't simulcast it onto Sirius.

Ohhh...I see now. So that is what it means to be #1! Not in a demo but its OVERALL!

That's a great picture of the Nagel family.

THAT's what it means when you're number one!! Got that pests?

BAWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA...

Oh wait, you were serious?

"I don't wanna work with a bubba the love sponge"

Negro loving Jewish woman aka Howard

Oh I see, you want s quotes? OK, here's one..

"How about it Howard, are you with us?" - Gregg Opie Hughes

That must be why Howard wanted to work with them....Maybe they can save WXRK in NYC, I hear the want to pull up their morning drive ratings.....

Hows that merger going zombies?

"Hows that merger going zombies?"

Obviously the same as O.O's ratings...nowhere.

Proves that FM radio still has value, and looking better and better when facing a "merge" MONOPOLY which will kill the satrad industry.

only would a stern zombie think that O&A suck for being on terrestrial and satellite, but it is so f-ing brilliant when bubba the luv cunt does it.

Correction - they suck AT being on terrestrial and satellite.

Based on Arbitron, they fail on both platforms.

Bubba is laughing all the way to the bank. He might play the role of a stupid redneck on the radio but in reality he has an MBA from Wharton School of Business whatever the hell that is. Supposedly he's really book smart and could teach college if he chose.

bubba isn't as bad as mj ...but all these"d.j.'s" basicly blow

Bubba is number one with adults 12+ (9.5 share), with adults 18-34 (18.4 share), with adults 25-54 (14 share), with men 18-34 (26.9 share), and with men 25-54 (20.8 share).

now,why cant O&A provide a FACT number like there sheep fan(s) claim that o&a are number one in there "demo"?

always spin spin spin

"O&A are #1 in the demo of obese 35+yr olds living in moms basement with no employment listening between 6-9 am ...we always win in the end"

LEARN HOW TO FUCKIN WORK KID!

Thank you, i can now die a happy man knowing that.

Oh MadMan, according to their contracts they get A+ on both SDARS & FM. But I'm sure Arbitron knows better who is listening than either XM or CBS do.

Is Clem #1 in one market? For 1 book? Big deal.

if opie had a brain and stopped being a cunt,he'd accept bubbas challenge in the bubbagon..that would POSSIBLY move the 1.7 rating needle

Radio wars are gay.

Here is 0.0's demo they are #1 in:

14-24 year old males, overweight and single, lives in mom's basement, unemployed, back hair,zits, and loves Xbox.

love you all in a non faggit way

My father was the chief engineer of 98 rock for over 10 years, Iv met bubba, and he is deffenitly not the same person when he is not on the air.

Bubba kicks ass and if MJ don't like it "He can suck a big fat "D"!!!
