Artie Lange may have made more than a few questionable personal life decisions over the years, but it is an undeniable fact it sucks not having him as a radio option. For nearly ten years, he crushed on The Howard Stern Show with his witty asides, blunt commentaries and vicious, self-deprecating rants. He's been gone for more than a year now, but that demons-imposed exodus may be over soon.

According to TMZ, Lange is currently in talks with the producers of the Dan Patrick Show to simulcast a new effort on DirecTV and Fox Sports Radio. If the new venture goes through, it would see the comedian combine forces with his old buddy Nick DiPaolo. The foul-mouthed and hilarious social commentator may not be as familiar to most fans as Lange, but he popped up in Artie's Beer League and has consistently sold out stand-up clubs for more than a decade. He's also been on a lot of the Comedy Central roasts and frequently appeared on Tough Crowd With Colin Quinn before its unfortunate cancellation.

Both sides are currently engaged in back-and-forth bargaining, but they're reportedly eager to get a deal done. If it's completed within the next few days, expect the still untitled program to debut at the beginning of September. Then again, if a deal isn't brokered in the next few days, there's problem a larger problem afoot.

I would have loved to see Lange return to the Howard Stern Show, but failing that, it's wonderful he'll likely be back on the airwaves.
