Great to see that viewership in plus 1,000,000 per show. That has me in shock. The PGA is usually 3-10x higher depending on the Tiger factor.

For me, I enjoy Dave Ryan. When I see Stone doing his soccer I want that guy but he changes his approach for bowling.

Randy and Rob usually ruin my enjoyment of shows. Dave Ryan with Norm or Marshall on color, OK, perfect.

I for one miss Denny Schreiner.

Agree.  Dave Ryan is fine but Rob Stone is unbearable.  Like I've said before I respect Randy's accomplishments on the lanes but I don't care for him as an announcer.  Somebody like Norm Duke, Brian Voss, or Marshall Holman would be a serious improvement but I think it's also important that any color commentator be knowledgeable about today's game and not have an attitude that's "stuck in the past", hating everything that's new.  As much as I would agree with that, I know I'm in the minority.

And someone who doesn't try and be a comedy act announcing
the show. Randy should be tied in a chair and be forced to watch
and listen to his commentary.

Ryan and Randy I can't tolerate,throw in Stone and I turn the
sound down

I thought Mike Durbin and Earl Anthony were very good as well.

ESPN really had a good core from the 1980's to the 1990's.

Just watching the 1987 Greater Buffalo Open --- where Roth shoots 299....they are both really into it!
