Adam opens the show with a couple stories from his day. He talks about writing with Kevin Hench, and coming across a poorly parked fire captain’s car. He also talks about hanging with his daughter at home, and trying to teach her a very valuable lesson.

 

Adam welcomes Gina Grad back to the show to help us with the news throughout the week. She opens with a story about Donny Bonaduce getting married, and Adam goes on a jag about older guys obsessed with skull jewelry.  Gina also brings up Kathy Griffin’s less than stellar set at the VH1 Divas Salute the troops, the recent Facebook trend to change your photo to a cartoon, and Chelsea Handler cussing out Angelina Jolie.

 

Before Larry Miller comes on, Adam plays a Dick Bank’s song based on his theories to slow the African population down. Larry then talks with Adam and Gina about most guys enjoying a woman with curves, and tries his luck at another round of Hypothetical Questions. 

 

Rob Schneider just flew in from Boston, and has a long list of complaints about the airport security… he’s in good company. He and Adam rant about the various safety issues in the airport, and Rob talks about constitutional violations and the end of the middle class. Adam also talks to Rob about becoming a ‘citizen of the planet,’ and wonder when he became more like Sting.

 

Rob also talks about his relationship with his parents, and his early days doing standup comedy as a teenage. He also talks about his stint on Saturday Night Live, and working with legendary actor Christopher Walken. He and Adam agree on the brilliance of Norm MacDonald, and the whole group listens to a segment of Adam’s audiobook. In the final moments of the show, Adam and Rob debate the Drug and Gun wars.

Since Adam is on the road today, Harland Williams steps in to host the show. He talks to Newsgirl Shira Lazar about his watching his cat sliding his ass along the floor, and also jokes about autoerotic asphyxiation. Harland also rants about ATM machines, poorly placed tattoos, and The Biggest Loser.

 

Shira then jumps into the news. The top story deals with the WikiLeaks scandal, and the group has an in-depth discussion on whether or not this acts as a contemporary whistleblower, or if it’s really illegal activity. They also tease the upcoming NASA announcement, and talk about some unusual reactions to airport security scans.

 

The group then listens to another segment from Adam’s audio book. After the break, Harland talks about getting his blood drawn and asks Shira if she would have sex with Forrest Gump. He also gets her to talk about the Lingerie Football League, which the Oklahoma City mayor is trying to shut down. They also play a round of Blah Blah Blog, where they try to match the celebrity to their retarded online rant.

 

After the break, Ralphie May comes in studio. He and Harland reflect on their comedy careers in Hollywood, and the challenges of performing after especially well known comics. Ralphie also tells a story about getting caught with weed at the airport, and he run-ins with the drug-sniffing dogs.

 

In the last part of the show, the guys talk about sexy southern accents, and then things get political during a discussion of Sarah Palin. Ralphie also talks about the ‘American Empire’, and the problems with dumb people in power. Ralphie contemplates running for president himself one day, and talks about the time he punched a guy in the face.

Adam starts out with a complaint to Bald Bryan: the carpet was finally cleaned today, and Bryan’s dog is rubbing his ass all over the place. Bryan chalks it up to poor timing, but Adam just wants to make it through one day with a clean carpet. He also brings Shira Lazar back to the show to help with the news, who talks about the latest controversy of the ‘don’t ask don’t tell’ policy.

Joining us in the studio is Jonathan Goldsmith, also known as The Most Interesting Man in the World. Adam talks to him about the latest boom in his acting career. Jonathan explains that he’s been in the biz for 50 years, but this is by far the most exciting thing that’s happened.  They also talk to him about how he got the job, and the many successes of the Dos Equis ad campaign.

 

Shira asks Jonathan about his relationship to the Old Spice guy, then jumps into the rest of the news. The group also discusses ‘Hangover Helpers,’ and the ‘Minimalist Challenge’ where you’re only allowed to own 100 things. After Adam and Shira learn about Jonathan’s life living on a boat, they wrap up the show with a discussion of prison politics, and ‘things that sound better than they are.’

As the show opens, Dr. Drew says he feels right at home since Adam and Donny are arguing again. He tries his best to stop the argument, but Donny comes on the mic to defend himself against Adam’s claims. Dr. Drew reflects on his own arguments he had with Adam back in the day, and their experience trying to get out of Westwood One to record Loveline at the KROQ studios.

 

Today, Dr. Drew is a bit fired up over some political issues. He explains how nowadays, citizens basically expect the government to abuse them. Adam chimes in about the regulations in the private sector, and how competition is a crucial part of getting people motivated to do their jobs quickly and correctly. Adam and Dr. Drew expand on the economics behind everything, and Dr. Drew explains how it’s impacting the medical field.

 

Adam takes a listener phone call who asks the guys what they’re most afraid of when it comes to raising their kids. Dr. Drew says he’s been much more freaked out about drugs and alcohol than sex and relationships. He explains his motivations and procedures as a good parent, and suggests what he would do if his kids were caught while involved in illegal activities.

 

In the last segment of the show, Adam talks about his book sales, and how he isn’t sure how to talk to his Mom about it. Afterwards, they talk about the new season of Celebrity rehab, and take one final listener call who thanks Dr. Drew for inspiring his career path. Adam and Dr. Drew reflect a bit more on some of their douchier Loveline guests, and Donny comes back in to patch things up from their earlier argument.

Mark also talks about seeing Adam perform in Irvine, and applauds his ability to improvise so well.

 

After more talk about performing with Sugar Ray, Mark asks Adam about the Jim Breuer controversy.

Adam welcomes newsgirl Alison Rosen to the show. She talks to him about meeting 12 years ago at the MTV Movie Awards, though Adam doesn’t remember her. He complains about how difficult it was to get tickets to the show even though he worked for the network. He also talks about having to wake up at 6am this morning, though really he was woken up an hour early, which sucked even more.

 

Jumping into the news, Alison has brought with her two different Bristol Palin stories. The first involves a Wisconsin man who shot his own TV because he was so angry at her performance on Dancing with the Stars. They also listen to a public service announcement recorded by Palin and The Situation. Between stories, Adam rants about people who don’t rinse out their coffee cups, and also goes over a couple bathroom rules.

 

Next up is a round of Know Your Lackeys. Bryan and Alison bet whether or not Adam will know information about the people he’s spent months, if not years, working with.

Adam opens by thanking all the fans for buying his book. He still can't believe he's published a book, and jokes about failing various high school classes, including Driver's Ed. Adam also talks about his days working behind the grill at McDonalds and how far he's come since then.

 

Today's guests are Michael Ian Black and Josh Malina of the new Crackle webseries, 'Backwash.' The guys joke about their 'celebrity counterparts' and notice how they always look uglier. Adam also gets a sense of Michael's beginnings in the industry, and Josh's Broadway debut early in his career.

 

Back with the news, Jessica Golden talks about a guy who got into an argument over a lawnmower and ended up eating his own beard. They also play a very quick round of Germany or Florida, and Adam recalls the words he had added to the Urban Dictionary. The group also discusses the situation in Haiti, and a little girl who was found with her mom's crack cocaine in her shoe.

 

Even though Michael has to head out, Josh stays for more news. They talk about a virtual bitchfight and other cyber identity stuff. They also go through and attempt to correct Adam's Wikipedia page, though Bald Bryan says it's 90% accurate. Adam also tells a story from his field trip with Sonny earlier today, and watching his son interact with other kids. 

 

The final news stories involve a new energy drink that contains alcohol, and Jay-Z's new title as the 'CNN of the Ghetto'. It reminds Adam of his Loveline days, when he and Drew met a relatively unknown Destiny's Child, and had them come on the show the next week to perform. They also tease Jessica for having a hot mom, and Adam sings the Taboo II theme.
