Bonaduce 86'ed From Adam Carolla Show

Apparently Adam Carolla's first act for the New Year was to get annoying sidekick Danny Bonaduce fired from Carolla's radio show, resulting in a monumental ratings surge.

Did Danny Bonaduce see it coming? Ratings are way up on Adam Carolla's 106.9 morning show (he has successfully replaced Howard Stern) but his sidekick Danny was unceremoniously dumped for the new year. Apparently Adam was forced to take "sick days" before Christmas to let his bosses know he meant business about getting rid of Danny. The panic in Danny's voice when he spoke on the air about Adam being home "sick" indicated something was amiss. For the past year Adam's fans have been tortured by Danny's steroid fueled "ME! ME! ME! personality on the air. Not only did he interrupt Adam's smart and entertaining moments, he wouldn't let guests talk about themselves! Nobody could get a word in edgewise while macho Danny raved on and on about his drinking, smoking, fighting, and sexual conquests. Listeners wanted to smack their radios. You could just picture Adam straining to hold his temper at times.

Too bad for listeners, Danny's parting gift is his own one-hour show airing in the afternoon.

    The ratings were terrible before Danny joined the team. Now, over a year later the ratings are great!! He may be annoying to some, but he has that, " want to hear what he'll say next" thing going for him. My guess is that Adams ratings are going to fall and he will be off the air by this time next year.

    Danny is not "macho." He is insecure about his lack of intelligence and, thus, talks about himself all the time . I can't think of anyone less interesting or more pathetic. He is a terrible radio personality and ruin the ACS for a year.

    Danny, reading trivia books and memorizing a few fact does not make one smart - especially when you regurgitate the facts incorrectly.

    Danny, you are a sad, sad man, who desrves the demotion. I feel sorry for anyone involved in your life - your ugly ex-wife, your soon-to-be-in-counseling children, and your fat 26 year old unemployed teacher girlfriend, who you verbally abuse. Danny, please start drinking again. You offer nothing to this world.

    Danny, If I'm right your ego will find these postings and you will read this. You're one of those love or hate people. I actually enjoyed your tme on the radio with Adam and Teresa. All the haters out there are just pissed that they make $42k busting their asses while you pull in 6 figures to talk into a mic.

    Personally, I'd rather listen to you go off on how many gallons of roids you took or how you kicked the crap out of Johnny Fairplay then to hear Teresa complain about not getting laid or how rough she has it. Don't get me wrong, she's a smart woman and is well educated but if I want to hear about another chick and her chick problems, I'll listen to my fiance when she talks. Enough with the whole jewess thing. She isn't that pretty...she looks like a typical cry baby jewess. I'm jewish so leave your thoughts of racism to yourself. She's only 29 (so she says) and she's complaining like a 55 year old jewess. It's only going to get worse.

    I think it was a mistake to get rid of you and I hope the best for you. You're a survivor and I know you'll be just fine.

    There seems to be a dullness or a lack of energy in the show since Danny is no longer there. Something is missing - I love Adam but I think it was a mistake to let Danny go. Yes he may not be perfect but who is - one thing to be said though is he is entertaining and that is what people tune to listen.

    Listen to the show this morning for the first time this year. did not know Danny had been fired. Adam must be running scared of Danny's popularity. I tried the show when Howard Stern left and found it boaring. Started listening again when Danny came on the show. Today's show was like dragging your finger nails across a chalk board. Guess I am back to CD's in the AM. Can't wait for the next raitings to come out. How many time does Adam have to remind us Jimmy Kimmel is his BFF?

    I miss Bonaduce too, the man had an honesty about him. I wish him good luck. I have been hoping he was just on vacation...guess not. I am not sure Adam Corola is enough, he tends to rant on and on...(and on)... if he let's Teresa go then I am out for sure.

    Adam is the worst radio personality on in the morning. Now I know why his late night show was successfull, he puts you to sleep.

    He lectures about jimmy kimmel, traffic lights, tickets, carpentry,jimmy kimmel, his many cars, his dog, jimmy kimmel. Basically everything the average listener does not want to listen to.

    Getting rid of Danny made the show much harder to listen to.

    The forced predictable Howard Stern rip-off bits are the worst.

    I predict his ratings will take a huge drop this year.

    bye bye adam.

    Last January when Danny initially started doing the show with Adam Carolla, he literally grated on every nerve I had with that voice. However, he grew on me and now I am sad that he is gone. I think that Adam may be somewhat narcissistic. Don't get me wrong, Adam is a funny guy, but Danny made that fact even more apparent. Too bad for you Adam. Theresa doesn't get it.

    Danny was annoying and full of insecurities and yes repeated things alot. But is the show better because of him getting axed? not really and sadly it is just getting worse. What should of happened is that Danny should of been told not interrupt as much as he did. But it ultimately is the Adam Carolla show and like I have learned until it is your name on the show or you are the owner hey, you are just a worker who can get fired at any time.

    I agree that Danny is insecure, not macho. I also think he's really smart (of course, he probably killed a lot of those brain cells through a lifetime of drug and alcohol abuse). I've always wanted him to get his life together and forgive himself, but I'll save that for another blog. I think that AC's show is going to plummet...which is a shame. I like Adam but his ego is so big it turns me off right as I start laughing. Anyway...I'm a Danny and AC lover - wish they could have stayed together.

    Danny is gone? I'm not sure how I feel about that. Initially, he rubbed me the wrong way. After all, Danny does interrupt Adam a lot, and he does like to talk about himself. But he was also honest and interesting. Sometimes, he was just morbidly fascinating, but other times he coughed up little gems about life. He kinda grew on me, sort of the way one begins to ignore a wart. Nevertheless, I think I'll miss him. He was better than Bald Brian, I can say for sure.

    Adam could not handle the fact that Danny was much more experienced in every aspect of life. Shame on you Adam. I was a big fan of the show before and after Danny. But now that Adam's true colors have come out, I'm very happy that they dropped the show from San Francisco stations...Prediction: Adam will be off the air by this time next year. How many times can we listen to your repeated boring stories Adam?

  • At Wednesday, 23 January, 2008, Anonymous Anonymous Adam fired Danny, huh? I had hoped he was only on vacation or at rehab...again...or something like that, but doubted that was the case since there was NO mention that he even still existed. That sucks. Although Danny could be annoying at times and walk around in his mouth frequently, now that he is gone it has become GLARINGLY apparant that he was the ONLY interesting and funny part of that show. Sorry, Adam. I agree with the others...think YOU'LL be getting canned within the year. Guess it's back to flipping stations in the morning.

    I too agree with many of you that Danny rubbed me the wrong way in the beginning. He grew on me. Its a glaring hole with him gone. Adam is really getting on my nerves with the same old stories. The unfunny rants that go on forever when he is interupting some guest or Teresa. Give us about half the rant and I would find it much more amusing but I think he loves to hear himself. No body mentioned the racist comments. His ego is the size of Manhattan. He thinks he is way funnier than he is. What is the alternative though? David Lee Roth? Maybe I'll go back to music in the morning. Love you Danny,

    I think Adam is really boring, Danny brought something, and I will say Jack Silver is great to give Danny a 1 hour slot after Frosty Heidi & Frank and the lead in to Lykis..Danny do what you do best Entertain.

    Whoa. I never checked out this forum until now. I thought I was the only one who may have felt that Danny was actually one of the interesting parts of the Adam Carolla show. It's sad that they booted off Danny. Now it's back to the same ol' Adam monologues.
