Also, this wasn't the greatest episode. Certainly nothing special or memorable about it. I can only handle so much of Ben Schwartz trying to riff on every other word before I need a PFT or a Daly or an Adomian etc. to come in as a character and do the damn thing. I like Benny Schwazz but this was a little much.

Oh, and we can afford $80 pants because of all of the savings we get from free-ish entertainment. Treat yourself and become less cranky.

P.S. In case anybody else's life was halted until they knew for sure, 'monologist' is indeed a word.

Is your response not the same thing? You could have said "eh, this post is not for me". I am equally baffled as to why other opinions are not welcome. He wasn't rude or disrespectful; he just said he didn't like the episode. I am personally flattered by your stance, but I'm confident that our forum posts aren't their gauge of success. There is what, maybe 1 post per several thousand downloads? Scott also periodically mentions how brutal the AV Club comments are... they all know what kind of place the internet is.
The advertisement comment did perplex me a bit. I'm certain that Scott surely has a better idea of the demographics of the show. New studios, new equipment, etc, would suggest that he's doing alright. I think that would be more of a complaint with the advertiser as well... I don't see why he would reject advertiser money even if he thought it wouldn't sell well.

Maybe it's just me, but when I listen to Comedy Bang! Bang! I prefer a guest like, I don't know, an Andy Daly or James Adomian. Those are the types of guests that I like.
