So how to how how with the ratings for the for the Emmys I'm assuming -- -- rather lackluster match what Drudge doesn't even put it on his website right -- we're looking for some overnights -- right now although. There were couple good lines a couple of good moments -- Eight yes. Let's just say weeding people out for. Its its best days are behind it and a -- I did think it is one of the modern family which is an extremely funny show and wanting the really. I thought I think spoke a lot about equality of comedy right now on television weren't real. Comic Renaissance I mean all five shows were nominated for best comedy Euro really funny shows modern family which is Larry's show one. That's Steve -- it's in the creator gets up there this this -- that was about the funniest moments as you know. Because one of the couples among gay couple. -- you know that a gay couple came up to -- That they want to thank me for. Spreading tolerance and beyond just making people. Except that He says yeah we've we've we've we've we've we've He says and that's true we've done it He says we've shown that it's okay for an old -- -- ever really young hot. And that it's that's that I consider what keynote at the audience many of you here tonight inventories that. Now that's fun. I mean every Beck crowd I've been in the audience -- -- you youth. You know you toss a quarter in any direction in the trophy. It's -- cup Palm Beach in -- would say there are certain. Demographic it. Anything anything else we need to anything happening Macs in the world with TV I mean again some of the new shows are starting this week you know it's it's it's it's not exactly like there's a stampede to the sets every night -- 730. No there's not but some good news shows are coming back I mean. I think it. The that are looking strong and and we we welcome them Beckham -- to fourteen next Sunday night when boardwalk and it's quite reach the weight so when did and when they wanted net which changed the name and there are there mail service to more quakes there. Because they're stupid. Home. And Alex's are pretty well known brand name high I don't know what they were thinking that you can commit to New Coke was taken. How all of Q and and and she only trove -- acted out in half on. Last night to -- numbers. Ten point 83 million viewers. And that's down from last year thirteen point 50 that's a priestess. The this picture -- is a -- big drop in and I think it does not bode well -- in the entire world. Or receive. Allow interest and awards have been won grammys. This is night. Maybe they should promote -- and it will have at least at least wonder to this this this tasteful. Disgusting. Moments and you heard me. -- probably really promote the well we thought we were gonna get that because they -- same sex kissing or sex kissing or some wardrobe malfunctions. You really do me dead in the active I think they did entities that -- -- didn't that win over east of the rehabilitation campaign is Charlie Sheen. Yeah I saw when -- do that he'd do anything He just came over their and He was really gracious and army threw. It. Yeah and which Ashton Kutcher well. But I would say if you wanna get the real deal tonight companies that. Each roast of -- And I saw some of those lines came pretty good speaking lines there were some in it like you know. Every time the cut lines from -- script tried snort them. It's packets -- uncommon for everybody else hey hey hey hey -- like or another you know so how. How much Coke is Charlie Sheen -- How much enough to kill two and half men -- out. That's a good when I like that at it. There -- some others that aren't suitable for a via the airwaves five -- says enemies would have been okay if it weren't for that nasty old bride Jane Lynch OJ which is -- she did as well she could with love immaterial but the I'm accessed. -- meet with me -- what about route via what do you like you can't have your own material and what about rookie -- coming back. -- checked it out for I think so wanna double check it you know use the one controversy brought before this and I know -- shock you involved L Baldwin. Yes and He was gonna make some joke about the pole there and did some some albeit about the scored. The -- and right thing was on fox products. Don't. Occur at. So -- -- -- which I like Alec Baldwin's commercials those airline commercials they're pretty funny and and thirty Iraqis are being funny show I mean I think especially for Davis you. Who worked for. -- where we go management so often really -- needs toppled. Yet if -- it's -- it's 30 Rock is a great send up he's in terms of playing the part of the corporate. We've who doesn't have a clue about what we do -- Mike here next with Howie -- and Max -- from the paley center for media go ahead Mike. How are you gonna get a kick out of this one. The show we are showtime. Literally addicted to it no pun intended. It's about the first Xbox that. Just honored -- if you have any idea when yet seventy. Mile deep. I'm surprised you mean this is the currencies and season seven. It yeah it's not gonna happen until the runs over an Indy pro we have to wait in those three or four months with things maybe -- maybe trying to. Which at Christmas time I think the government to more episodes ago seasons mr. Great show funny show on how often times the forceful. More importantly Max for that writes a book in the market picked up -- -- too long form series which deceit or read the lead the pack package and so. Boy I gotta think you're and we -- a couple bucks per. No so I mean it's it's I have to say we gotta take the Brothers faltered series. I is that time is -- forget that forget the movies stuff you know the move the movies a roll of the dice you know -- these movies advertising -- could He could come out on Friday and be dead on Sunday you know. A long form series could last for years years and years and years and years of residuals and that's. Such. A while the sound of good by Boston goodbye AM radio with the. Video are next with how we cargo ahead -- Yes hi capped an -- Mac the last time I spoke to you. It was about the event and it was asking you.

I liked the idea of this story line going back in time the Jurassic Park what are your thoughts that you think this is gonna make a bit. Can you give me any -- about it but basically I like this story line. It's it -- trustees story I think -- kind of fantasy -- is always launch. I mean I think you know shows like lost in -- are the exception. It's really tough thing to law. I checked it out by. I don't know I forgot to Vikram cautiously pessimistic. I remember that time tunnel let's series in the securities that was a great show -- must to have a budget of about like 500 bucks for 20. And Robert Duvall the Australian one they spared no expense in the special effects and that she.
