Yes, but those guys have an intense hatred for almost all things ESPN, and have ragged on everything Dan for a long time. It's kind of pathetic at this point.

there was no review on awful announcing, big lead or sports media watch yet, so I just mentioned the only one I had seen so far.

too bad they didn't just go 10-1, as i bet a lot of stations/listenres would love to see cowherd dumped.

I listened all the way through this morning. It wasnt his most laugh-packed show and it did get dull at times, but overall I'm glad he's back on the radio. Still 10x better than Cowherd too. At leat Dan tells me what he actually thinks instead of spewing out the most controversial statement he can think of to drum up callers to argue with. I'd prefer him at his old time slot, but I'll take what I can get. He DID mention that he'd have Reggie Miller in studio tomorrow, so that should be must-listen.

I listened to most of the show.

Am I right that they repeated a segment (with the people from other cities)?

It does sound "empty" with no one there with dan. there could have at least been a Showkiller producer-type with whom DP could have interacted.

Funny they kept the "breaking news" sounder.

Damn. We are still stuck with Rick Reilly being on the show.

It's too bad Reggie Miller cant be DP's permanent co-host. He seems to watch a lot of sports and sounds pretty knowledgeable too. Dan broadcasted all of last week's shows from L.A., and isnt Best Damn taped in L.A.? And isnt Dibbs still on Best Damn? I kinda expected Dibbs to call in or something, but I guess not.

The first couple NEW DP shows were kinda dull, but things definitely picked up after that. I really enjoyed the last 2 or 3. However, that may have been because his guests got better.

Also, I'm listening to Jim Rome's show today. He's not in, but some other dude whose name I keep missing is subbing for him and it's pretty good so far. I listened to about 10 minutes of Rome last week and I had to turn it off. DP and Rome are both carried by Clear Channel and DP mentioned several times last week that he is Rome's lead-in across the country, which is one of the things he wanted to do. DP was in L.A. last week and Rome is always in L.A., so I expected a tie-in there somewhere but nope.

Any thoughts?

I haven't had a chance to hear it yet. IT has tightened streaming rules, so I can't listen on line.

There was a weird story in one of the chicago papers last week about how the show is going to be tape-delayed at 11 or midnight.

(I couldn't post it then, since I still had the last post in the thread.)

Ironically, it will be going h-2-h with Steven A Smith's show, which is also going to be delayed until midnight. (this makes me think that the ESPN station, as on O&O, has to carry it.)

I tried listening a couple times last week and it was still deathly dull. I also had the misfortune of turning in the day Reilly was on, so I immediately changed the channel.

I start a new job next week, which is likely cut my radio listening dramatically, so I don't need to probably worry about listening to DP anymore.

Well, now you're really screwed.

    SI writers such as Peter King (formerly of Newsday), Tom Verducci (formerly of Newsday) and Rick Reilly (not formerly of Newsday) will make regular appearances on his radio show.

Since my podcasting listening has been pared down, I've not really given two thoughts to Dan's show.

Maybe once they add a co-host.

With my luck, it would be Reilly.

edit: Reilly apparently will have more free time, having apparently left/leaving SI.

edit2: Reilly to ESPN in June 08.

I subscribe to SI and largely ignore ESPN. Advantage: me. If I wanted to read a Reilly column, I'd turn on Kent Brockman's "Kent's People."

Or read an old Dan Jenkins book.

I must have missed this post earlier. The local ESPN affiliate is talking about how it's well known, but not entirely publicized, that Reilly will be joining ESPN in the future.

All I need is a belt to prove it and I'll be set!


So I wonder if this means no more Reilly on DP's show?

For those of you needing an "extra" DP fix today, catch the replay of Steve Czaban's "First Team on Fox" at around 2:10 est this afternoon on XM or on FoxSports.com to catch DP's cameo drop by the studio appearance from earlier this morning. He discussed how he and Rick Reilly(SP?) have basically traded careers (SI v. ESPN).

Patrick was on Boomer Esiason's radio show this morning and took some shots at Reilly.
