Imus on MSNBC every weekday morning....
..for 3 hours.

Does that make business sense?

Anyone know what kind of ratings he gets on MSNBC?

1. It's a conspiracy to get us to not watch TV. I mean, Imus is certainly
no draw, and MSNBC must know it.

3. I don't understand why.
Surely he doesn't get good ratings.

10. Larry King is a teenager compared to Don "Compost" Imus.

11. But Larry King's show is an hour and it gets good ratings....

...and Larry King has guests in the studio.

Imus' guests are on the phone and lasts 3 hours. Does Imus' show get good ratings?

12. He got "0" ratings in Los Angeles when he was up against Stern.
Imus is as phony as his toupe

14. When IMUS first went on TV his sidekick Bernie asked: "Why don't people...
...just put a prune on top of their radio and watch that."

I haven't listened to Imus in several years but I thought that was funny.

17. I imagine he's got one hell of a contract....
since when WNBC became WFAN and was all-sports 24 hours a day, Imus stayed on in the morning drive-time. That was the NYC flagship NBC station-- his home base.

He's been on and off MSNBC over the years, and I gotta say that it makes the dreary radio show even drearier watching those guys kiss his dead ass. Imus was once a pretty funny guy, and I'm not sure whether his stopping drinking made him a putz, or the brazillion dead brain cells from when he was putting away a couple of quarts a day.

Oh, he's off the nose candy, too. And still not funny any more.
