Thanks for the call -- 18774694322. Let's see. Sounds like Max wants to turn the -- and the liberal playbook everybody's got to win a prize. But I don't Illinois got a prize. Saying that at all I'm just say that I'm not like you know a lot and polluted it is you know what newspaper apple -- It bit somebody like cause you know Michael chase stocks -- or. And these actors are great actors I'm just saying let's open to talk more about it everybody gets an award. I'm saying it let's let otters show you could use -- match. So what's -- I don't hear somebody I don't I -- every I don't know dispersant issue at their bugs. Sure sure is -- -- what is so what's -- Jesus got 26 Emmys as a possible. Yeah that is sure -- issue. Who are you know has been at the documentary unit at age you know. For many many years of what 25 years and and HBO or as just -- a lot of holes. There's a lot of competition anymore either machine I think our doctors are questions what is. Yeah. How the ratings for the Miley Cyrus special. -- We now know that working didn't get a didn't get a big audience. I can't I can imagine. You're next with how we card Max Roberts -- have -- -- how I think you very first -- prime former prisoner box. Yes -- the old Charles street jail. Yes yeah yes so I'm hoping to hit one and Daniel are later ones pulled from Max. I never hear you talk about that showed those who kill with Croatia they -- I think it'd -- Much cap to shall have ever seen. -- don't watch out at a check it out I mean it is clear explanation not so much as well as. I argenbright you don't especially -- yeah there -- on the subject. Regionals business. It is our idea and I don't really do to turn that boosters deter me it's. Yes. Have you seen the leftovers. I did not -- well so would suggest you see. As orders are. The four. Q. Were you told me about that two losers yeah. What is -- -- turn coming. I think it'll be out here he would probably in -- per -- or is is Bob's burgers coming. -- -- -- You're next with how we card Max Roberts -- -- Am Mac. And I huge copper and here it is and that he had out of there. I don't know I don't know you could win but I could use you. I it is -- newspapers I I don't usually go. You know prior periods in the don't know struggles or why operation. Cookie cookie you know he's available to stock now because he's in Boston right now. It couldn't tell you and your blog that started this state job I can actually. Yeah he's he's played Billy Bulger. -- was pretty good my friend Anthony a more they took him around the garden museum -- he's gonna play some role in the some some show about the -- robbery the -- and he says he is one of the nicest guy she's ever Matt riddle of lovely kind gracious man. I told I cookie I told he -- that he should tell what tell tell your hero they -- to want. But to what he would every speaks it is as Billy Bulger he should remember that he should be his accident should be a cross between. Vincent Price and bell what ghostly. -- So it's so typical of a South Boston Irish you know I mean that's that's just that's what everybody talks over the air. I think I think that you know -- -- concerned about that -- probably some -- Are. -- Chris and what ones were pretty good and the other person. You are orchard. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- leaving early. The other solution to your. To your problem their maxis to go the true detective -- just have -- no actors in the show every year right. Yeah how I think it. So it was more site yeah it's been popular. Or -- We didn't see your world war reality you know places -- created this great writers. They switch yet as our story -- Along the number of successful losers are now we are no -- important story. True detective so I think -- words. Cookie take the day often covered the Boston its stock him. You know or how it was. Thanks for your next with how we car and Max Roberts go ahead mark. -- -- -- -- -- requested and you just mentioned you have in the last sobered up around but do people I talked to a to a communal watch it but the the show is fantastic out with a one note early. Republic. I think -- -- out of the church that you aren't there it is definitely -- Six was calling for all of it. And pick up on. All right all right all right are you got better that a little better my apologies. I'm sorry guys you know you wouldn't call it or outlined today. He's getting cocky. And I know I know. -- -- they have public winding reclining -- now when the bar rooms in -- to block blood you know you're just lie back there and drinking drinking something -- Cooled malt beverage and. Oh who were true Al. A. How was ready for doing -- ratings wise would be back for another season. It will -- is doing extremely well and I prepared like a brilliant actor Kiefer Sutherland so we're going to others. Well. You walk off but I think it's doing so well I don't see anybody actually. Kick it down his store robbers so I wouldn't be surprised if you get picked up this. But I apple. Pretty good idea at the end of never. Let's see how did the bridge -- -- -- Britain to a pretty good I think I really. Blisters from this segment no I think got to look at have to show. It's it's it's doing okay and -- -- really well it can't block these kind of real quality drama how to reduce future -- -- -- Well and but they call plus seventy outrageous government -- people watch it. What should US stroke within a week -- their record and watch the lakers are restored. It's it's hard to imagine real ratings mean and mean much at all and he is now anyway the -- I mean especially among the sort of the upper income groups of people have access to DVRs. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Why it's OPR people advertisers. -- type and lock when it's -- Germany and Argentina and final little World Cup. You know that has more value. Figure out who rightly or series television comedies and dramas. Even with a lot of reality show where there's not some kind of -- repeal. You know some people basically if they can afford it they're recording -- -- signal so I. Right exactly Jackie are next with how we card Max -- go ahead Jackie. I Orleans snacks.

Thanks for the call Jackie the last ship on TNT best show on TV. This story OK to have a lot of promotions aren't a lot of money spent. On the -- do we know hey it's not I don't think it's quite a blockbuster yet -- -- it would -- Is so cool would included them plus seven ratings. I don't believe it is but I but I pick who you are separated out and a worse problem. Advertisers are -- when their advertising and who are united treated in -- and at peace partner who. Officer mark wants to know was the rumor true that the monkey business channel is planning a vikings spinoff called drew woods. Yeah. The -- -- weren't nearly as exciting is Leo vikings you know they didn't have. They sail around those long boats and you know go on. Pillaging -- rampages. Round. Howard but remember what effect because we're. It's about the Seattle. That's more -- right that's right did call this the draw woods did work puts socially -- -- the inequities. So they did have a certain modern -- to -- -- -- -- -- good. Our James your next with Max province and how we cargo ahead James. -- guys I and so what you call our party so. I'm trying to find the leaking are logged and all of the liquid. Again I didn't.
