Is this Jerry Doyle the Garibaldi of B5?

I don’t know when Jerry Doyle is live on the air.

In Pittsburgh he’s a late night talker and I’ve never been able to figure out if he was live or time shifted.

He’s a very good, sensible and articulate host. He’s not a bomb thrower and left the R’s to be an I 5 years ago. I haven’t noticed any contradictions or hypocrisy in his positions when I’ve heard him over the years. I’m not an active listener who tunes in just because he’s on but will listen to him when I’m driving etc.

He was Garibaldi on Babylon 5.

Apparently he’s a Republican, so he should be ok.

Yes, he is the same guy. He also does a better show than Savage.

Yes
I wish he was still playing Garibaldi on B5!
Then there would be something watchable on the SciFi channel!

JD used to sub for Savage back before he got his own show.

JD is more of a populist than a the typical talk radio republican.

Never heard of this Doyle guy, but from this press release I’d guess he’s a total bore. Hope I’m wrong.

Yes. He talks about that all the time. I am not sold on his politics. He seems to be more libertarian than conservative.

I love listening to Doyle and have for years, trouble is that the station here often cuts his program short for local high school sports!

He’s had Dwight Schultz (A-Team) fill in for him on few occasions and the guy was a hoot.

I’d rather listen to him then Hannity any day.

I used to listen to him here in the DC area...loved him. He is a tough dude with attitude. Smart. I hated it when they took him off here a year ago or so...he deserves a wide audience.

RIMMER: (To LISTER) So, whoever you are, who's next?
LISTER: I don't want to know. Someone else look.
JAKE: Stand aside! Let the law handle this.

He grabs the next case.

JAKE: Hmm... No photograph. Name, "Billy Doyle."

The group looks at LISTER.

LISTER: Not necessarily. It's not necessarily me.

LISTER gets up to investigate the suitcase.

RIMMER: Billy Doyle. Well, that's a name that came from the wrong side of the the tracks, isn't it? You can see it all now: a youth spent in and out of corrective institutions. A string of illegitimate children. The wife will be all white shoes, no tights, and blotchy legs.

Has to take up petty crime to cover the court orders for maintenance. Before he knows it he's standing in a bank with a sawn-off shotgun. Somehow it goes off. An old lady gets both barrels through a crocheted bobble hat. All he can do is hide. But where? And then it hits him -- with all his ill-gotten gains he can buy four years in a computer game and wait until the heat's off. So ends the Ballad of Billy "Granny Killer" Doyle.

LISTER let's out a big sigh of relief and hands the case to RIMMER.

LISTER: It's yours.

It’s a good show. Used to listen a few years back
when I lived in the states. Jerry is pretty independent.
He’s a smart guy and good story teller.

Yes, and he reminds listeners of that fact every five seconds. Evidently it’s the only thing he ever accomplished in life. As a talk show host, he sucks. IMHO

My absolute favorite radio talk show is the Red Eye Radio guys—they are the best. I get them in the middle of the night but they explain economics the best I’ve heard.

I was listening today and while the show isn’t bad, he’s no Mike Savage. I like Savage’s commentaries on history, religion, even food and culture.

All barns will be safe from burning with DOYLE, who lends us all the excitement of a damp tea towel. No earth will be moved.

I say this comparing him to crazy man Savage off his meds, but whom I respect, for his take no prisoners attitude that shows up at just the right time.

I’m pretty familiar with Jerry, his who originates from Vegas, which is where I live.

He’s pretty mellow, likes to poke fun at both sides and is more libertarian than conservative.

I think he resents the Republicans because he doesn’t feel he was given the support(money?) that he should have been given when he ran for Congress.

It’s not a bad show, but I do prefer Savage for sheer entertainment.

It's also ironic that Jerry Doyle's ex-wife Andrea Thompson (also of B5 fame, and NYPD Blue, too) also tried to break into the newsie business by anchoring on CNN Headline News for a year. She wasn't as successful as Doyle has become.

They should have went with Jeff Kuhner...

Jerry Doyle is a good man who takes no BS and is not a GOP Liberal Plant Suck-Up like some of his counter-part radio hosts....but he can drone on and lose an audience

He has been on numerous Orlando radio stations in the past...but he cannot keep an audience....and is not kept on the air locally

The PR release by TRN was quite nasty towards Savage...and seems to try real hard to claim that Doyle will keep Savage’s audience. That will not happen.

Kuhner would have been a great replacement. He is a stronger conservative on many issues

Yep, my favorite character from Babylon 5. He’s a right-libertarian. He will drive most FReepers nuts because he is not afraid to criticize the GOPe (including Bush).

If he was the guy I was listening to tonight he sounded like a rino. He was saying that the republican party is too right and too white. It also needs to bring more diversity into its ranks. I changed the station in disgust while he was ranting against conservatives who complain about media bias and the rigged polls.

Jerry Doyle was an actor. He once made an appearance on “Moonlighting” because he looked so much like Bruce Willis (at the time anyway)

JD has replaced Savage with TRN; that's all. It's highly unlikely he can keep very much of Savage's audience. Doyle had the advantage of appearing when most of the big names are safely off the air and he had no competition, and Savage's audience is simply not going to go for him.

He's just "OK."

If Savage can sign with a new syndication partner, I would not look for Doyle or TRN to hold the timespot in any major market for very long.

You are wrong. Doyle is good.

When Savage is on a roll, he's very very good. But he's also at other times a total downer, a curmudgeon and irrational plus he donated to Moonbeam, which I still don't get.

Anyway, give Jerry Doyle a listen. I think you'll like him.

“Today the 6th largest syndicated talk show in America replaces what was the 3rd largest show, and in so doing, stations will get more light and less heat,....”

Huh??? Sounds like a great business decision!...LOL/sarc

Let’s see we are going to rid ourselves of the 3rd largest radio show for the 6th largest so we won’t catch so much crap from the left?

If he has done a better show than Savage, where has he been?
He may fill the time slot, but will never have the numbers Savage had.
The airways are filled with middle of the roaders. Doyle will just be another one.

Eff the left. Are there any Execs with balls anymore? Savage is great, he was the Evangelist that made me realize I am a Conservative. I didn’t care about politics until 9/11/01. I was 26 at the time and 4 years honorably discharged from the Marines.

He’s an “Independent” that has some good stuff, some not so good, a very irritating alter ego voice and an absolute visceral hatred of social conservatives. I usually have to turn him off if I start listening.
