(Insert Witty Post Title With Clever Cultural Reference Here)

Random News and Stuff:

-Gregg "Opie" Hughes, the I-Man's illegitimate son, got married in Philly this weekend. Congrats are in order.

-Here is a nice article from the Daily News about the NewsHour program. The headline, "Wake Up to Don Imus' 'The Imus In The Morning News Hour,'" is sadly lacking in puns and play-on-words, which is pretty much 80% of the reason why I read the Daily News.
Tragically, this article didn't get as many hits as the story about the Queens teacher sleeping with the 17-year-old-male model (Headline: "Teacher and her Pet In Doghouse"); but that's what happens when you get the lesser-talented headline writer at the Daily News.

-If one of your coworkers was publicly fired, and you moved into his old office, could you function in it if it still had all of his decorations and everything? I'm sure there's a great reason behind it, but still, creepy. (The rest of that article, might I add, is very good.)



That's it, I'm outta here for the holidays. Have an excellent Thanksgiving!

Thanks, CG, for the Neil Best article on Mike and the Mad Dog. It's interesting to hear that Chris Russo wanted them to go to the morning slot. They (and Charles) were great in those first bad mornings after Imus was fired.

It's a good show today, even though I always miss the old days before this holiday with the priest and the rabbi. I love the continuing saga of Imus and Virgil. Happy Thanksgiving to you and everyone here.

I liked the old days, too, especially when Imus used to take calls from the listeners...

Although, Imus did take a call today from some guy named Sean Hannity...

Wow....

Oh man, I can't believe the I-Man didn't pick up on this Tuesday morning. During the News Hour, that lady Patrice with the business report misspoke herself and said "President-Erect Obama." What a wasted opportunity.

Yes, the Imus brand permeates all.

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!

Hahaha, wow, that is hilarious, Mike. :-) It's a good thing that Charles didn't go ballistic on her - I guess he only saves that for his BFF.

And that was cool of Sean Hannity to call in. Perhaps he nneded someone to talk to after he was jilted by his partner. ;-)

Imus didn't take Hannity as well as he should have... Hannity was all defending him and pointing out the hypocrisy of last year, and Imus kept correcting him and saying they were right. Stop apologizing and stop talking about it. The show is good. Almost near what it was, but I know it won't be there again.

"Opie and Babita"? Whip Out Your News and Marriages?" "When News Breaks, we make fun of it?"

Anyway, both M&the MD and Imus have changed, neither for the better, neither worse, just changed. Longtime fans like me have now gone on to other morning/afternoon programs, yet still tune in to Imus just to see if something funny happens.

Hope you all had a Happy Turkey Day.

Imus in the Morning doesn't seem to be about being wildly funny anymore...it seems more about being Mainstream/Commercially successfull.

And judging by all the new affiliates and listeners, and the success of the Imus Ranch Record, Imus seems to be a huge commercial success...
