At this time every Monday afternoon we're joined by -- Rodman's. He has a veteran journalist covering the broadcast PV industry he's now the executive vice president. The paley center for media in in New York City. And he's here to answer your questions about TV anything anything about. TV he's here to answer right Max. I am indeed Howie I'm here to serve you my captain your midi file hours and of course -- the monkey business channel I got you know we're gonna have to rush this is the production -- to torture all the other networks will be going for too but. Officer mark as the name for a Secret Service worker -- fifth. -- -- -- Or how about Cartagena CEO days. I was gonna call it merely adventures of the Secret Service politely go -- pro loses about are out of work under. The premiere episode. The best laid the a presidential. Or is that as the as the Paper Cartagena said today that the quote today those wacky gringo street. -- there were drink in the finest whiskey in quicken up the vessel comprised that the roots. Oh boy that's great our tax dollars at work. Just is that it used government -- That. Well one guy I don't know you know I think sandy I think they said that -- those organs were 180 dollar a night hookers so they -- but I was arguing over 47 boxed. So apparently and I get the -- he Peter a little bit of money but she thought she had a she had a few more box a few more pesos -- You know. It's it's a great story -- -- and a Max amaze you could leave you. Stuck. Your secrets. I mean there isn't supposed to be I mean. I guess that's why they don't have too much time to do counter -- you countered to run them counterfeiters anymore you know the -- and after hookers there. Yes I think in the basement monkey business. Or. Two ago. Yet. And separate the we're -- forgiving of that special Paper anymore either Maxtor has a regular stock will go from April's. To say how. Yeah -- got a couple things. -- -- president looks suspiciously like certain radio knows it. Listen to one so -- the know how The Three Stooges did box couples why is that finished second but I don't think seventeen million does that grade is renewing our. It's pretty good I mean that's pretty good it's a -- I gotta say I'm surprised they even did seventeen million I mean why I saw that I saw the -- the BO last week nights at home -- always go to this. Well it's it's a Farley Brothers. They have there at the team. Something so. It's gonna open up it didn't have a lot of competition for 21 jump street and so. For that kind of you know for you think it is RCI tech reviews here in New York. Goes really. You know it's I think it is an homage. To my favorite holy trinity. Yikes. -- yeah an homage. -- -- Obama or. -- listen I'm not opposed to -- Columbia Pictures B movies her short subjects you know mob on the bigger world's biggest Boston Lackey but. And I think the world's only. It no my dad to there that. Let me ask you -- you have the old radio shows that the paley center we took weeks to Libya we have -- the radio it's. Also great that's good so let's yeah I'm glad to hear that then. And so -- I don't -- Boston black you syndicated OC would -- am I guess when can we see breaking bad again. I think we're looking at either. All users that amber. That it will be. Smacks of anyone is watching that DeWitt Bill Maher. Mart does pretty well he does the trees that file. Somebody wanted to know whenever I thought I'd. I didn't even think of this but -- you know -- again it's a legitimate question I mean that do you think maybe you the acacia -- in the in the headlines yet Good Morning America last week beat The Today Show for the first time in sixteen years. And file and somebody said that that could this be a -- reaction to the fact that NBC got caught doctoring those tapes. Now I think that I think that this is with this is more factor it is. I think they lost some some viewers when your Euro left the show some very popular -- believe that. Hard to imagine the -- there to an end. Better than their current and then and then. I think the other thing -- -- -- it. You know ABC has a much stronger promotional platform ABC stations are stronger in the NBC stations. And the prime time those letters so there's more promotional opportunities they've really been dining now. Jia made by using you know that it showed dancing with the stars and one that. And you go to these guys in the morning they'll pull out any ratings that they possibly. Sources of permanent thing to thinkers -- I wouldn't count that today show up so fast I mean as we talked and lauer was off last week apparently again lauer I don't understand the attraction while you're. That's how you know like you are being interviewed by just about problem and one thing I will say is -- ours is terrific -- live television is. As you vote notes that the easiest thing in the world to do nothing and he's he's he's very good he always comes with game. Well he got to speak at the training at the same place that so many of -- -- -- -- channel seven. Oh yeah on the big star on the Indian burial ground first station that it is. But that's -- much anymore I'm surprised I'm surprised me is -- your friend -- it. Doctor Destefano based products and we got the pictures I've got to -- -- new pictures up nine on the opposite of that OK we got that we got that the pictures have come back up for me and but I would take him with doctor Destefano last week and -- you should see the difference -- check out the website though later on in the week oh absolutely I will wait to see I was really really ball I was ball tonight -- wasn't that a -- yes. I guess we comb the hair straight back to Vegas that made it look worst that are -- that it that it did with my. Pathetic comb over but I don't I don't -- to worry about that stuff now. All right let's see here. I vote for real hookers of the Secret Service -- this final way. It how -- the UFC fights on fuel fuel the video on -- -- and what does fuel the ability. Fuels like it's a -- -- -- -- oriented channel via I think it too well you know ultimate fighting its variants. Will formal jobs to be back on the History Channel. On the our GCB and private practice on ABC going to be renewed. A good chance yes what happened the way what did they decide not to -- general hospitals so there is going to be one soap -- left on the networks. They must look at the numbers in the fan base I think is as the competition diminishes. You know there's enough of an audience -- major hospitals to work. So all the more they like story. -- -- -- I don't know I don't know Etsy. How we asked maps if Fox News has more commercial in the broadcast channels sure seems that way thanks the news channels in general and that's as Fox News but I think they're guilty special cable news. Many -- too many commercials oh hey how. I'm good news for the breaking bit -- that's coming back in July. Newton. July how's the finder -- becoming one of my favorites.
