How Leo's talking with the a bloody mind the other day -- Consumers say it's too good that you can have what we should do kind of a monkey business wraparound for people watch TV on the web where. Where we just kind of pop up in the windows during these like a talk shows like during Meet the Press or any of those political shows and we can just -- -- to rely even with the right. Exactly hey I would've said this afternoon -- folks do have you noticed that he's this he's just said for the third time in sixty seconds I have misspoken. A few misplaced words and he assumes full responsibility you know what that means folks assuming full responsibility that means I assume no responsibility -- Just like stop the finger pointing mean stop pointing the finger at me to pick. Up. Why you know we all get along all right. 18774694322. Totally unintentional totally. As opposed as I said earlier to partially unintentional. 18774694322.

This is this is my daughter got the spread -- a local affiliate out or even though where it is but it's kind of funny. We have we will have it here in a moment hole but what do what I vehicle will later call and I and I will come back to calibrate your tee shot -- About 12100 dollars and doctors say it is safe but. For some reason it just doesn't work on every one for more information on tonight's story -- ABC to NE six dot com slash. Beauty breakthrough -- -- as the -- last between four and six months and Susan you met an -- story says.

I grant -- phones are gonna be worrying and guess what happens. The day. As I said yesterday Macs -- first -- that that was when that these that tell -- when I was in TV if you want the anchors that askew when he thing you be sure to write it out to you that you put you type it out so we can go into the teleprompter he so why is that and they said. Do you want them add any of those people had lived in the that's a perfect example nothing has changed give us strip they got this. Script -- -- 18774694322. Kevin your -- with how we guard max -- go ahead Kevin. Yeah you go in Jericho is canceled they actually finished good show that there's some closure to it. But during the that's gonna happen -- -- I'm project forward or how deep down pick -- an -- DVR don't know it's worth watching them. I haven't heard anything about them doing that. But you never know. So another it's just sits -- and can -- are tremendous value going to be any kind of like partial closures just going to be like and that it.

Give us -- list of Martin max is a bunch of and gone -- you know gone deaths the most prominent one that you got. That it -- law and order going off I mean that's big and and I think -- huge mistake ram BC the why did they do what anyway it's still a decent decent enough ratings I. It did how we and I think to bill I think that they couldn't work to deal well enough unity you can watch was some episode of one of the three law and orders. Anytime of the day or night -- runs and and and my guess is this that they just felt felt but while we couldn't make the numbers work. I gotta think Dick Wolf the creator of that -- was not happy and they're certainly not happy the production community here and in New York. Lot of people were working on that show 506070. Years or on the street got to admit they got a million and cable stations now when there -- a lot of rumored to when their own independent programming what is we just go over one allows. I think if the deal was very would have its its funny law and order came to a close three -- canceled a couple seasons ago when. And they thought it was gonna go to TNT. Then they kind of sandbag TNT and its stated MBC. I think TNT didn't forget that they weren't there is the safety -- this time thanks for the call Kevin Carol your next what how -- car and max -- from the paley center for media go ahead Carol. -- -- -- -- I -- accepting -- chubby about the best showing GB breaking bad.
