    I think the show lacks chemistry when both of them are not on. Sometimes i might still watch but it's not as good.

    If either one of them are on then I'll watch, as long as Bob Ryan is not the other host. He is so boring. Mariotti is tolerable.

    I like when Dan Levitard(sp?) is on. In fact, it would be preferable if he just permanently replaced Tony. Or they could have Eric Casilias(sp?) replace Tony. Just about anyone (including Mariotti) would be better than Tony! Michael rocks though.

    I remember when i couldn`t stand Dan Lebitard was on. Now I get so excited when I see him. If Mike or Tony left Rick Reilly would be a good replacement.

    I love it when both of them are on but that has been very rare lately. I actually like Dan Le Batard even though they always make fun of him. I HATE when Bob Ryan or Jay Mariotti are host. If I turn the TV on and either of them are on I rather listen to ESPN radio than watch that train wreck.

    I watch the show pretty much all the time. Guest hosts don't bother me on this show, although you can tell the show's flow isn't quite the same if Tony &/or Michael aren't hosting on a particular day. The show on ESPN that really suffers when using a guest host is "Jim Rome Is Burning". That show flat doesn't work at all if there's a guest host. ESPN would be better off doing a "Best Of Jim Rome Is Burning" show whenever Jim takes time off instead of using a guest host.

    Yeah that's true, or Around the Horn when Rob Stone is hosting. But PTI is still fun even when neither are there, (frequent in the summer) because it's so funny how many Dan Lebetard jokes come up.

    I could survive without Wilbon, I don't like him. Kornheiser? Not so much, I like Tony. But like others have said, I hate Bob Ryan as well, ever since he said on Around the Horn that the Portland Timbers' fans' rendition of the national anthem was "unpatriotic".
