Legal reasons. CDR the show (etc) was created by BJ Porter and Scott Aukerman. Apparently Porter is no longer in the picture (hasn't been for a long time I think). So I guess they had to. But I really don't like the new name either. (Won't keep me from listening though.)

Thank you, Martin. Now that there is an explanation, I may be able to coax myself into a place of acceptance for that new name. That really dumb, annoying new name.

There's about a hundred comments on the earwolf site to that effect.  I don't think anyone likes it.

I know I'll miss the old theme song that they play Reggie Watts shows up to perform every week at the beginning of the show.

honestly, they could call it Stupid Asshole Comedy Shit Face for all i care. as long as they keep putting out the quality of show they have been. they're golden.

Don't get so butt hurt about the name change, who cares really?  the format's still the same. you won't even notice in a couple of weeks.

That Reggie Watts theme was pretty awesome.
I'll probably go into the wee hours.

'Comedy Death Ray' seemed like a pretty stupid name at first.

it's almost certainly a money thing. I'm sure the other dude still get's royalties from the IFC show, but he doesn't get shit from the podcast cause it's free.

I know it's been said in this thread before, and is redundant but these dudes deserve another bump. But I binged on "AM I RIGHT?" this weekend, and I suggest everyone check it out who hasn't yet.  Evan and Jessie are awesome hosts/interviewers.

I am really liking Comedy Death Ray. Right now I am listening to the Paul Feig episode. The Birthday Boys doing the Owen Wilson impersonation is great. This show is giving me the feeling I had when I first got hooked on Best Show. I also like how clean of a show it is. They can swear I think but they rarely do. It's funny how the family friendliness of wfmu has established a bar for me. I couldn't listen to that Greg Proops show mainly because he uses the f-bomb so generously.

If that's a high priority for you, I am afraid you'll be changing your tune when the "right" guest comes along.
