Carolla forced to partner with Danny Bonaduce!

It didn’t last a year, after all.

CBS has thrown a virtual hand grenade into The Adam Carolla Show, the grating, droning anti-radio program that replaced Howard Stern in LA and five other markets-- firing Carolla’s on-air sidekick and replacing him with the unpredictable, volatile and violent former child star and current reality TV subject, Danny Bonaduce.

The shake-up, coming weeks before the show's dreaded first-year anniversary, was long overdue, and we've been calling for it since we first got caught in a traffic jam with these dullards. Carolla’s show has literally been an anti-radio broadcast, full of dull, repetitive, droning monologues by Carolla and the abrasive, honking voice of comedy writer-cum-“sports personality” Dave Dameshek, who, along with Carolla's executive producer and an on-air character, was fired in the bloodbath.

Surviving the axe were Carolla and his female co-host, Teresa Strasser, who joined the show six months ago. As with Carolla and Dameschek, Strasser is part of the Jimmy Kimmel comedy circle. Kimmel, the lunkish host of a little-viewed ABC late night talk show, is the CBS stations’ radio comedy consultant, hired in the wake of Stern’s desertion, and the main reason Carolla and his aggressively bad show have remained on the air this long.

Bonaduce, a drug, alcohol and steroid-abusing timebomb, as exhibited on the reality series, Breaking Bonaduce does not promise the most obvious chemistry with Carolla and Strasser, who present themselves as cerebral comics, while wallowing in a puerile, offensive, sophomoric pool of dead air. But the explosive former child star does promise publicity and more likely, an explosion.

Turning the ego-flaunting Carolla into one-third of a morning zoo team places the show in line with several other FM radio shows in LA, feature two males—one wacky, one trying to keep order-- and a third-wheel females.

The original was Jamie Frosty & Frank on the competing 98.7, which lasted two years until Frosty & Frank were abruptly fired and replaced by Bonaduce.

Frosty and Frank teamed up with a woman named Heidi, and as “The Triplets” (right) now follow Carolla’s show on 97.1. Bonaduce was fired from 98.7 a year and a half ago because of those drug and alcohol problems. Jamie is now teamed with Jack and Stench. So now, LA has a trio of incestuous triplets: Frosty, Heidi & Frank, Jamie, Jack & Stench and Adam, Teresa & Danny.

Make that Danny, Adam & Terry.

See this as another indication that Howard Stern will soon be lured into syndicating or simulcasting portions of his satellite radio program on the newly-christened “free” FM.

You have no idea what you are talking about. Adam's show was great! He is very intelligent and insightful...so I can understand why you would hate his show.

tabloidbaby said...

Right.
That's why they fired the producer and on air staff and teamed him with Danny Bonaduce.
Because he's such a genius and the show was so great.

Yeah whoever the tard was that wrote this flaming turd of an article needs to be shot. You really truly have no idea what you are talking about.

I REALLY hate people who post articles purportedly lending knowledge on a particular topic, but anyone with half a clue can tell is an obvious trolling attempt. This also goes for you anonymous #3, if you had listened to a half-second of the show you would know that Theresa is far from a "3rd wheel giggling token girl."

"Theresa is far from a "3rd wheel giggling token girl."

this is an awful article by the way. adam carolla is a comic genius.

This is why not all bloggers should blog. You are a moron and this article should be crammed up your brown took-eye.

Oh whatever. The reason why Adam's show was so good is because it's the "anti-radio program." I pray to God that it never becomes one of those stupid morning zoo crap-fests.

MJ said...

Adam Carrolla is a monotone-voiced egotistical boor and a bore to boot. I thought this piece was wonderfully written. Of course, most of the people who didn't like it were probably the type of people who say "tl/dr" and are unable to maintain focus on any one thing for more than 2 seconds. Keep up the great blog tabloidbaby!

Adam is horrible to listen to. I only started listening because of Danny. I am waiting for it to be the Danny & ? show...

You don't know what you're talking about, the show was great last year. Anonymous #11, your an idiot and a Jerk!!!! danny sucks ass.

I love danny. I started listening because of him. Get rid of the rest of 'em.

You guys or girls who bash Adam are idiots. Adam was a normal guy who made it big. He wasnt a child star who never became anything else but a child star. Adam is funny, real and not a flipping wreck like danny who relies on trying to be dominant because of his insecurities of being a real man.

Bonaduce is an ego centric moron. He is unfunny and does not add anything to the show. Its all about "me me me and more me" according to Bonaduce.

Reading through your blog, it's clear that your interests don't lie in intellect, hence the blog name. It's understandable that you think of the radio show as "droning" as you probably don't understand the references made in the show. Unfortunately you're in the majority and that's too bad.

Carolla is a lot sharper than his detractors make him out to be. He may not be your cup of tea, but there's no reason to call his fans dumb. Yes, some of his jokes fall flat (see the ching-chong awards) but his low brow/blue collar shtick seems genuine & can be refreshingly funny at times.

Maybe I buy into it because I'm a working class white boy from California w/ a screwed up family. I'm guessing we make up a pretty big share of the listener's market.

Still, the show is lacking. Seems like he needs a serious Dr Drew type to add some substance.

Instead, he's focusing on the same kind of banal pop-culture featured on THIS blog. You should be happy. Yet you only seem to resent him more.

This is silly. You pan Carolla for being "anti-Radio" then mock the show for being just another Morning Zoo. You can't have it both ways.

The next time you tune in do us all a favor. Try listening to the Carolla show without your head up your ass and you will appreciate what a genius Adam is...

I just noticed that Teresa Strasser is listed #1 on www.amiannoying.com as the most annoying person over: Osama Bin Ladin, Charlie Weis, Joseph Stalin, Hitler, and Tori Spelling. I honestly agree.

Anonymous said...

Yeah, Strasser just laughs and talks about how she's in love. I wish she'd start cutting herself.

Who wrote this? You lend credence to Steven Colbert's word, "truthiness". You have an obvious agenda that you partially support with truths.

PS: Kimmel gets a very good rating, by the way. You have no idea what you write about.

Dancing with the Stars said...

I'd have to agree with your sentiments regarding his lackluster show...perhaps competing on DWTS will showcase some of his other talents??

Whoever wrote this article deserves to be beaten in the face with a hot iron, and sterilized via gardening shears/rusty coathanger depending on their gender (of course its a woman). To all you raging idiots who listen to show for Bonaduce, you should be euthenized. Freedom of speech should be repealed based solely on the fact that the internet has provided tabloidbaby a venue to speak publicly . Die slow.
