March Ratings Book and Quarterly Ratings

Written By:  Lamont

I have the ratings broken out by quarter (January-March).  There is also  a total for each slot, I like to get a feel or the aggregate.  In addition to, I have a breakout out by show.


For the last three months, Fred Faour and AJ Hoffman has been kicking ass.  There is no other way to put.  I am interesting to see if they can consistently maintain a 3 share over a prolonged period. 

Josh Innes is winning the 6-10a slot.  Josh's ascension in the ratings appears to correspond to the Super Bowl Fight.

John and Lance's Morning Show is strange because it's parsed with other shows.  In other words, their ratings from Jan-March is not 1.5 but likely higher.

Can Arian Foster fairly interview Bob McNair?

Written By: Lamont

Arian Foster is making his mark on the Houston Airwaves. He has interviewed Scarface, Duane Brown, Snoop Dogg and Andre Johnson.

I love the podcast because the environment appears relaxed.  I believe the relaxed environment lends itself for people to say some weird shit.

Last week, after Bob McNairs "sorry not sorry" moment, Arian invited McNair for an interview

Based upon the strength of his prior interviews, I was like "Fuck yea".  Later, I listened to Arian's podcast with Andre Johnson.

During the interview, the topic about the ring ceremony came up.  Arian said he didn't come because he couldn't look at the guy and he didn't want to shake his hand.  A few people tried to tell me that was Arian's feelings back then and initially I thought "fair comment".  But then I thought about the Arian I know publicly; If you feel that Arian has changed a new leaf and allowed shit to go, you are mistaken.

I think Arian is more than capable of conducting a professional interview but if I already know "you feel some kind of way" about your guest, it changes the way I will receive it.

Although I would love for McNair to be on Arian's podcast, the reality is, media vultures would grab at least four or five quotes and headline them.  If I was Bob's Public Relations, I would seriously think about this.

As far as Arian, if you are trying to lock down a huge fish in Bob McNair in this social climate, you may want to play it close to the vest.

Josh Innes sues Lebron James

Written by:  Lamont

Josh Innes is suing Lebron James for $5 Million Dollars.  Initially I thought it was a bit with a fake attorney but apparently, Josh has real legal representation from an attorney named Charles Adams (The Big Angry Lawyer).

Check this out on Chirbit

I really have no opinion, outside of it being so silly it's funny.   I would like to know what's the "or else".  If Lebron (which I expect) says "Go to hell clown", what Josh's next move be?

Bob McNair needs Rick Smith, Fire the PR firm

Written by: Lamont

I debated whether to write about Bob McNair.  After watching my friend Jermaine Every's video piece, Bob McNair needs to retire , I decided to share my thoughts.

No offense to Jermaine or many others who are consumed in groupthink, I wanted to approach the discussion from a different angle.

Many are consumed with Bob McNair retiring, semantics of an idiom or racism.  I believe there's more meat on this bone

Bob McNair's People

When the Wall Street Journal dropped the headline on Bob McNair, I instantly wondered, "who is Bob McNair's publicist, who is the Public Relations person or firm in charge".  Common sense would lead me to believe publications outside of maybe John McClain with the Houston Chronicle has to go through people to get a sit down with McNair.  Why would you want McNair  hashing up a story he's not going to alter public opinion?  No matter if McNair are right or wrong, public opinion has made up their mind and the only outcome is making a year old matter worse.

Thursday, Mike Meltser and Seth Payne had the person who wrote the article.  He said he talked to McNair's people and they felt Bob wanted to set the record.

Below is the audio

After I heard this, not only is the problem Bob McNair's reluctance to let an issue go away, his "people" are equally responsible.  Whoever this contact person(s) are could have shut it down by saying "No thanks WSJ".

Rick Smith

As I thought about the timeline of events, something stood out.  Bob McNair's comments corresponded with the same time Rick Smith began dealing with his personal issues.  Bob McNair made his initial "inmate" comment in October.  According to Rick Smith, he was taking time away from the team in September.  I am not suggesting that Rick Smith has control over McNair but maybe Rick was more than just a General Manager.  Maybe Rick was hi adviser.   Hell, we all joked that Rick had Bob's ear, it's looking like, that may not be too far fetch.  In other words, if Rick was free of personal issues and 100% locked in with all of the stuff that was going down, I believe he would have steered McNair in the politically correct direction.

As far as Bob McNair retiring, I've been called for this for the product on the field, not because of Faux Outrage.  I think the Texans has a communications problem organization-wide.  From Coaches and GMs not on the same page to McNair to a coach unable to make routine in game decisions.  It appears the Texans have issues with communication.

Facebook data breach is political

Reading the stitches on the fast ball.  At least few times a year, we are guaranteed to have data breaches that catch the public's attention.  In reality, there are breaches daily but every now and then, we get them from major organizations.

Usually data breache's national media shelf life is at most a week.   We hear about it and then it's gone and the world is better again.

Facebook's data breach has been top news for nearly a month.  I wondered why.  What makes this data breach any different than hundreds before.

Facebook's owner Mark Zuckerberg is a Liberal.  He allowed an outside company to legally data mine millions of users.   Donald Trump's used the data during his campaign and the greatest woman on planet earth Hillary Clinton loss the election.

Well, I guess this makes the 829th reason Hillary loss.  Forget the fact 
  • she ran a sloppy campaign down the stretch
  • cancelled multiple appearances due to health
  • disliked by a lot of minorities
  • tons of Bernie Sanders supporters were against her
Facebook is the reason she loss!  As far as Zuckerberg's congressional hearing, I expect him to be flogged.  Mark will have to throw himself at the mercy of Democrats.  He's at risk of being banished from the club.

In a nutshell, Democrats are mad that Trump won. Facebook is only the latest excuse.  If you think about it, if you are dumb enough to believe the Russia shit, it's very similar.  A country who the democrats are traditionally sympathetic to since World War II is being accused of helping Trump.

Funny how things happen.
