Jim and Sam are in LA. They didn't have any cameras to film the first 3 days there because Handsome Rob shipped them to the wrong city.

While in LA, they did some podcasts and Chip appeared with Sam on some political show and some Black Hollywood show.

The channel is quickly becoming unlistenable. I was disappointed when they fired Nick Dipaolo. Craig Ferguson, a show I actually liked listening to on my evening commute, either quit or was let go. The Benningtons just don't do it for me, maybe I'm not "woke" enough to be in on the joke. Jim and Sam seem to be barely holding their spot as Ellis takes over the channel, I don't mind Ellis but I don't care to hear his friends podcasts.

I initially read that to mean the show was ending.

Ah well, two chances lost for Jimmy to join Ant now. If that even was a good move.

10 second review and everything you need to know about how narrow Jim and Sam are:

Jim is a masochist and Sam is a sadist.

Fin.

Bob Kelly was in this morning. They discussed Trump's Memorial Day tweet and Sam's discovery that the paper in boxes of Jordans can leave glitter residue on the sneakers.

Bobby went camping/hiking in the Catskills with Ari Shafir and Joe List. He had to dig a hole to shit. Coyotes came through their campsite at night while they were about to fall asleep. After the coyotes left, Bobby's air mattress sprung a leak and deflated.

Yesterday was Jim's 50th birthday. Denny brought his Shirtless Balloon Boys (Handsome Rob & Shitloaf) into the studio. Shitloaf wrote a birthday poem and Rob sang a medley of oldies rewritten for Jim's birthday.

18-year old Jim would think it's awesome that 50-year old Jim knows Ozzy, but would be sad to know he's still single.

Dee Snider was in to promote his new solo album. He acknowledged that fans use new songs as piss/snack breaks during shows. He told a story about Elton John being nervous about a tour because he had a new album and was worried that the audiences would tune out during the new songs.

Sam was out today because he died, but should be back tomorrow. Mark Normand was in studio.

They talked about a guy who was born with balls but no dick and had a bionic penis built from part of his arm and skin from his ass. He's 45 and just had sex for the first time. His girlfriend is about 25 and quite hot, according to Jim.

Jim and Mark discussed some of their worst gigs. A French comedian named Gad something came in and shared an awful show he did in Montreal at the French version of Just for Laughs.

From the article...

The number two program on the platform - second only to the Howard Stern Show - finds both its hosts waiting for new deals while the show is at its best.
This is hard to believe but there's not much competition.

Sam reported on his social media accounts that he and Jim are working under an extension of their current contract that expires today while they continue to negotiate a new deal. They'll be on the air tomorrow morning at 8:00 as usual. He didn't say how long the temporary extension is.

The extension is just 1 week while they continue to negotiate, but they're closer than they were.

Travis threw his back out trying to lift his dog Sunday morning and spent the day in bed. The dog weighs 35 pounds.

They talked about "90 Day Fiance - Before the 90 Days."

Travis is the only one there still watching "The Walking Dead." Jim hates the garbage people who suddenly forgot how to speak in full sentences. Sam started watching again when the Negan story started but lost interest again.

The details of a new contract are pretty much in place, but paperwork has to be drawn up, reviewed, and signed. In the meantime, they have another temporary extension but they'll be on a planned vacation next week. When they return in a week, they're new hours will be 7-10 with the channel available to them until 11 so they can run late when they want to or have a guest that isn't available earlier. That's the new schedule going forward.

What was the old schedule?

As of this morning, the new contracts are still being reviewed by lawyers, but the new schedule is 7-10 AM Monday through Thursday with occasional Fridays and the 10-11 hour available for going long for interviews, etc. Otherwise, that hour will either be a replay of Hour 1 or some other "Best Of" filler. Fridays are likely going to be a "Best of the Week" show unless they come in for a guest they really want or decide to bank for a later day off.

I'm amazed they are negotiating new contract. They must have managed to retain a good chunk of the original O&A audience.

Tens of 'em ...

I suspect a majority of the listeners are fairly new.

Here is a portrait of what a truly sad, lonely little man Jim Norton is.

A 50 year-old man in a soulless, joyless apartment that probably cost him well over a million dollars, and a kitchen that has never been used.

Jim and Sam signed their new deals this morning. The contracts are for 3 years and the Chip Chipperson Podacast will air on their channel a week after it goes up on YouTube and Riotcast. It turns out that the company's desire to air Chip was the biggest obstacle to the deal. In fact, Jim offered to just stop doing the podcast and was told that would be a dealbreaker.

Wow. That dumb podcast has a lot of value after all.
