Disclaimer: Arbitron ratings blocks are 6-10am / 10am-3pm / 3pm – 7pm and 7PM – midnight for Men aged 25-54. The ratings are broken down below by the show appearing in the majority of the hours listed. Total ratings do not include WEEI’s knee-jerk excuse of including Providence numbers or streaming.
February’s ratings are a bloodbath:
AM Drive: Toucher and Rich 12.8 (1st overall), Mut & Callahan 6.9 (4th)
SportzRadio’s Mom Jeans increase their lead. EEI’s Dumb & Dumberer ripoff is down to 4th place from January’s 2nd place finish.
Middays: Zolak & Bertrand 13.1 (1st), Dale & Keefe 6.4 (3rd)
In the JV division of sports radio, 985’s Unlistenable Duo more than doubled up Dull and Teeth. Now that’s Keefer Madness!
PM Drive: Felger & Massarotti 14.4 (1st), Ordway, Merloni, & Fauria 5.8 (t-3)
Trending NOW: Sinking ship dot com’s ratings are down across the board from January, and OMF is no exception. Should Mike Salk be warming up in the bullpen to replace Ordway yet again? I’ll tell you after this.
Evenings: WBZ-FM 7.5 (1st), WEEI-FM 1.9 (17th)
The Blackmailing Pissant took The Rich Teeth Magician Class: He too can make ratings disappear! EEI is down big from last month’s 4.1, 9th place finish.
Weekends, 6AM – Midnight: WBZ-FM 6.0 (6th), WEEI-FM 1.8 (19th)
The WEEI Amalgam of Suck (Weekend Division) gets tripled up by 985? Curiously, it appears listeners don’t want to hear Blackmailing Pissant Reimer, Sexual Harrassment Enthusiast Marc James, and Preeminent Libelist John Tomase on their off days.
In closing, these ratings have not been embellished, because they need no embellishment. They are simply, horrifyingly, the story of Joe Zarbano as a cocky, slow-witted radio man.
