I'm an Artie fan over Stern fan at this point, but I think probably Artie. People, in general (not necessarily here) like to root for him, even if they don't listen to his show. Howard has a huge segment of the country that already rooted against him, and now most of his fans hate him too. I would love it if someone who has access to those could actually look them up and post them. I know some posters here work in entertainment and probably could get access to them, so many thanks in advance to whoever does.
Isn't a Q rating how well known you are and not how well liked?
I'm convinced that Artie has way more listeners (radio, podcast, streaming, DirectTV) than Howard has now, but Artie's fame is a subset of Howard's. Howard definitely has a higher Q rating than Artie, even though most of those people don't know if either one of them are still broadcasting.
