    Jim also said Opie wasnt actually trying to get Ant back in studio, its more likely that he stopped it happening than management. Allowing Anthony back in was just a fuck you to dummy.

    Also what damage control was there to do, when Ant got he boot a lot of people legitimately unsubscribed and a whole three people showed up to protest at SXM what happened when Op got fired?

    That would imply the world knew who he was and we know that's bullshit because the only world that know about him are the PhillyKrew and former O&A fans.

    Their firings are comparable. Anthony got fired due to a drunken, racist Twitter rampage. There is a lot of cultural baggage that goes with that, and people are willing to push back, at least a little bit, against what they perceive (correctly or incorrectly) as another manifestation of political correctness. Opie got fired essentially for being a douche (regardless of the official reason), which has no baggage. Would as many people have unsubscribed if Anthony had been fired for doing the same shenanigans that Opie got fired for?

    Yes.

    Edit: If you remember back the show was dogshit, more so than usual, in its last 6 months. A lot of the people who unsubbed were going to anyway, it also seems Anthony has more fans than Opie.

    Except on twitter, where Opie bought followers.....i just remembered he got caught doing that :haha7:

    Jim is also a pathological liar who isn't beneath backstabbing people if it's done on the QT.

    In Norton's defense, when he was 15 he once had two Bartles and Jaymes wine coolers.

    He also hates and generally fails to understand animation, which of course makes him the best candidate to make a cheap cartoon on other people's dime. What was he supposed to do? Not take people's money and not make a cheap cartoon?

    By the way, does anyone know if he's sent out those perks that his backers paid for yet?

    And you're basing that on what? I've never heard anyone accuse Norton of that aside drop Opie, and Opie's not exactly a reliable source for that sort of thing seeing as how he's a delusional paranoid narcissist and all.

    That's what everyone assumes. But on the other hand, how often are the guesses correct? They also said it would be Opie.

    Sure did

    RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal that comedian Artie Lange is turning the page on his career after a medical emergency nearly left him dead!

    According to an insider, Lange, 50, is leaving his popular Artie Quitterpodcast behind to team up with broadcaster Anthony Cumia. Together the two will form the Artie & Anthony Show, a new program set to debut Sept. 4 on Cumia’s podcast network, Compound Media.



    As Radar reported, Lange, an addict who has tried to commit suicide twice, is opening up about his July collapse in Chicago as a result of an abscess near his heart. When doctors operated, Lange recently revealed, they found “a reservoir [containing] a bunch of heroin and cocaine that formed a sludge.”

    The former Howard Stern sidekick admitted, “It was harrowing, this time it really scared me,” and he has since vowed to remain sober.

    With Lange’s life on the rebound, Cumia, 56, has been wooing the funnyman to work with him for quite some time, said the insider of the duo, who recently got together at New York’s Comedy Cellar, where they sealed the deal.

    “Artie was basically offered too much money to walk away from,” the insider told Radar. “And it was Anthony’s idea to place Artie’s name first. They’ve been friends for a while.”

    Lange, who enjoyed a successful two-year run with his podcast, Artie Quitter Uncensored, producing 400 episodes, had to figure out how to work around rehearsals for HBO’s Crashing before he could sign on the dotted line with Cumia, added the insider.

    When reached by Radar, Lange would neither confirm nor deny the story. However, he hinted: “That would be really interesting. I’d be [going from] working with Judd Apatow and HBO, who could not be more liberal, to Cumia, who is a total outlaw conservative!”

    The Artie & Anthony Show will run Monday through Thursday from 4-6PM EST beginning Sept. 4.
