I love Kevin Smith, I love Stern, and I love O&A. Not sure how I feel about the STern Kevin falling out. But it seems like the same falling out he has with everyone. He does not like to burn out guests with the audience. He likes em maybe every 6 months at the earliest. And as a rule he does not like having guests, and ESPECIALLY not phone in guests. WHich I agree with guests over the phone are not nearly as good. Kevin is much better on O&A than he was on Howard. It is true the boys have a better show or just hanging out bullshitting while Stern likes to interview and make it interesting. I think it is kinda misleading or him to imply Stern somehow is not as good for a career as O&A are these days. I mean technically they are heard by more people. But there ratings arent near what Howards were when he was on terrestrial. And the best way I can see to figure out who has more power is the show comedians. Meaning little jimmy and artie lange. Artie is not near as talented as far as the fact he does not come up with new material at all. But apparently Artie gets paid waaaaay more. Which I assume means he has bigger gigs and better ability to sell out. Atleast I think thats what it is.
Anyway Kevin is awesome on O&A I just wish he would be in studio more and on the phone less. But as far as phone guests go, he does a really great job.
