Q should we although I'm. I'm a little perturbed with Michael currency hasn't put. The you know the mixed media sandwich on on the -- so I'm sure he's working on yeah a young babies were up. Willis and -- I heard you had a great experience over the over the Christmas holidays. But. Would you like the thing Mayor Bloomberg personally I would I would for the fight -- job he did as well as our crack. Sanitation. What do you know what that's what you get for -- and in my east neighborhood in Brooklyn you know. You know bed -- got blob perfectly another hot yeah right up. I'll take it all the time I've lived here this was really a typical at its best seasons bloomers -- mayor. With the snow is crazy you know how he's you might have heard I was -- -- were going down to the UK it is on the -- was one of Mexico's day after Christmas. The troop we'd planned since last October and I -- particular that news to my three children and Christmas. Sorry -- but Bloomberg said everything was life was going on North -- and yeah. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- You know civic and that's right -- -- very nice neighborhood. Quote -- -- kid -- not in the I kind of like to think of it is the Wellesley. New York anyway put. But according to people would see the stories in the New York papers they specifically targeted the nice neighborhoods they would -- is the CM at the cruise they specifically. Dog dead in all the areas where there were a lot of well to do people I guess that means Bloomberg borrowers. I guess it must split. The I was I was really at the other pissed off -- Bloomberg it's cuts and sanitation department. It's just I mean it's just wrong I. I'll tell -- it's it's it's funny how we that you mention that because. I live. Couple blocks into the what you would call still a little bit of a transition. Arm but I'm really primetime Park Slope yeah you're talking about. I mean this is some some serious realistic I've never seen it like this between this beautiful park. Prospect Park and those blocks up to the park. Mean and that's what we're movie stars live and and they -- those those streets. Denied it plowed in a -- as well. Man it was that that was Nancy with an even if our streets were plowed. The airports were shut down we weren't going any place so will have to do with -- mayor how's that campaign for president go into that as well. I got two words were job without. You know -- and and who knows me I mean he may try him as he's gonna try to make lemonade out of lemon I mean they really are putting this. You know a deliberate slowdown by sanitation and the supervisors and you know -- if it's cozy they're under the quilts. Don't bother coming in today. What seems like it's true to its I don't try to spin it as much as possible but it -- you know BBC the heads of the sanitation union did seem to be actually denying it very strenuously. Now though and and that I don't think you can live with the affected. They -- double the absenteeism that they normally do normal work Enders though. And and and is this really was it was a typical mean usually this city. Can deal with this kind of blizzard deal with that well in this time but a don't forget about it is Marty Markowitz the Borough president of how we're those -- public would say how or those public sector unions worked enough for the big news that the and I am might actually -- Bloomberg's quest for the White House that might help we'll let it it's not exactly like pro union sentiment is running in the country. Well anyway -- Yahoo! a mighty my daughter who was gonna have a friend of -- come down. Well afterward packed off the other kids to various places and then -- should be for a flight got canceled on Wednesday I couldn't believe that there were flying in Ottawa on Wednesday morning -- I -- days is. To get it straightened out. Well you know how we we just to get out of dodge for a few days week we drove down to that the tip of New Jersey went down to Cape May yeah and for three days so we're staying at this place you'll like the story -- So -- state it's placed purposely rent a place has an indoor pools that kids can go crazy yes for indoor pools are very big in motels these days right right this was -- it was called the grand hotels really like a grand motor coach lives right out of the notion that the rates were right. They had this really nice indoor pool Olympic size pool. Big state in big guy glad to story glass windows you can see the the beautiful plant ago sent. So we get there and there is an Islamic convention -- -- of some sort okay. The man in western dress the women -- in the head gear in the you know that things in the pants and a for the two days that we overlapped with them there and dig this they put up blue tarps. Ins so. So to block the windows which. Part you know you could see it from from part of the lobby you out though is so that so that I guess our our Muslim Brothers and sisters. Wouldn't have to look at the -- flash. Being exposed while -- and but you know what I have to say I mean it's private establishment they want the convention business (%expletive) me off. This may opted to you know my kids couldn't see the Mac issued its the national Salinger's the liberal demo. I'm not you know and you know you know I am.

Tomorrow they're broadcasting all of the remaining episodes on aired episodes back to back it one day. I'm curious -- max might have an idea why a network would want to broadcast these final five episodes back to back like this. Well I think they wanna get some buzz for it you know go out as strong as they can. Maybe they sold it to a single advertiser. And their -- basically they'd they'd pay the money for the episodes it's a kind of way of saying a graceful farewell both to both to the fans of the show and people Purdue's.

Well I mean the I think that the whole and we call these refer to these shows -- a reality TV its program is known. While these are kind of clause I documentaries. They are in a sense casting Eric they they they're doing there they're varies thorough in what these people about. With the personalities -- like with the personal histories are the kind of set up the same kind of dramatic tension you might have added drama I mean that's what makes this stuff so compelling. The you know Jersey shore they were gonna put all those knuckle heads in house of they all got along. And and were people -- -- who really could speak the king's English and what I could I I was read the story are or should have my daughter read the story yesterday.

Okay here's one Spartacus is back for six episodes. This month that he future port after that it to showtime series. Yeah well no it's I thought Spartacus was that's the on the kernel like this the one that's on the directives and I don't our. Hours stars I don't know what you said it's such as Showtime's -- wrong nuts on stars. I'm I think they're gonna see how these six episodes. -- him a boy can on the the original stars -- he had some serious health problems. It caused some Yeltsin. Understandably some trouble to show it to. You know the kernel of such he you know I -- heavily similar to episodes but it. As we like to see full well -- you like gladiator movies you really dealt with me he well -- I'm saying he likes gladiator movies that are premium cable. We'll -- -- that that that -- let's just say they give. The actresses a lot of exposure. Okay actually. That'd be the actors and actresses have been seeing a lot of each other they have they have indeed Wilson -- -- the grocery list she lost in the store and will Jersey shore be renewed. Yes Jersey source actress arsenal at the Jersey shore is government. The fact I got one star from the New York Post I mean what more do you need to know I mean there they had the -- five in themselves that I am oh yeah or if you go through if you're too low -- Freeman the New York Post your bound to succeed on network on -- cable -- That's as the smell of success among other costs of all the other thing. It's a season three begins Thursday night and -- Eliot you're next with how we card max -- go ahead -- -- -- Beckham got a question can look fortunate seat of Bartlett coming back. Yes absolutely. -- -- They yeah. Very popular show lot of fun. Thanks for the call -- glad you're next with Howie -- and max robins from the paley center for media New York City go ahead line.

Now sorry about -- glad Sharon you're next with how we car and max -- -- had Sharon. Yes I alleys of Mac. I'm not here admitted -- windows Maine so unfortunately we don't get fox. Why it's got. Really I don't get flocks well we if we could afford cable I can't say we Fox News you'll get Fox News Channel yeah. Now and now we do watch CBS morning news. And we like Kerry Smith Maggie Rodriguez stayed the weatherman. -- everybody got -- Wright video what. Nowak that we wonder where they're going because they changed I guess they want to increase their ratings. But we expect sales already felt. I like to know what happened the very end Maggie and days. Still be determined. Harry Smith had a good run at CBS. Ethical funds of -- for -- but they -- dread that no offense -- they had dreadful ratings dreadful idea that -- was going nowhere and the minute that. Head of the networks wife who -- -- you want -- taco makers cohosts on the show left. You do that dates for that she was being hell -- she was being held hostage by the show's producers in which he escaped that was the end of analyze it. 50 wait says it's tweeting you twentieth century Mo I don't know what it is all I know she's getting paid the bill what. I got our obligatory Dexter call off the -- they -- up Dexter will be back. I believe it will be. However the ratings been for blue bloods. Are pretty good pretty good. You know CBS's hit three dramas that have done well -- -- -- its house in Hawaii 50 how strange doing. Okay. On the French yes. Rosemary one more call here from before we -- Macs go rose merry go ahead. I want to lagged that authorised backfired that systemic collapse seat that was the that was -- fantastic -- -- -- that -- the watch and read Rachel and out. Unfortunately. Our characters were working together. I think it had a -- a pretty good run in and they've got enough numbers enough episodes for syndication but. The ratings were certain to decline a little bit not secure says it took wanted to do something else. And I think that you I think the first the first reason you cited as the most likely though most find it -- out it is -- it is indeed it is indeed I think that you know there they really want those dramas and and and -- They're doing a real analysis of the -- supporting it in sporting keeping production. Is there enough for a back end to sell the re -- seldom home video to. Who want -- keep the show going and lose five million bucks mastered or wanna cash out for a hundred million men armed have to listen to lighten or what like oh. I'm gonna know what how we have to spend the week. Pondering that decision.
