When he million box. One humility -- now he's got and they spent ten million to promote the thing. And -- thing about it although that twenty million up numbers a little bit of funny money because. They built this whole like the creation of the Atlantic City in 1930. Actually hear Brooklyn and in. Will be using it over the of the twelve episode arc by they spent a lot of money Martins scored. They ever get that how did they ever get that money back commodities they're gonna they're gonna you know they have a certain number of subscribers whether they spent twenty million are not. Right.

What's the latest on the new Y five whole series. Army is actually supposed to be pretty good I mean I don't think you're talking about high art here but. The whipping the smartest thing they did how -- you'll be happy -- is they kept your original theme. Boy I mean the the old series was not 50 I mean that's not its attraction right I mean it's. And while I guess the question is is it gonna be high camp. I'm actually no they're trying to play I think they're playing it pretty straight not this stiff is the original. And and I think that they've they've given the characters will be -- more dimensions to it. You can bet. -- that's a bad sign I don't like having -- pension and I know I don't go characters. Did it especially you yeah I hope they took it takes you know full entertainment value of Hawaii.

Credibly well they'd -- -- They did not afraid to take chances at Beers which goes well you know it's funny how we directed tribal made a lot of fun of the name change. This side by FY FY. But it seemed like you worked. It'd be interesting how they were just talking to some. Door -- because nobody in America could spell anymore. It was a couple of bucks us as CI AF five. I don't know -- apply if the kind of the FY hit the convoy were -- -- with -- Science fiction and -- get to -- in their because.

That TV show that extra -- on interrupting my favorite television shows and not. Then in -- to the camera there one extra chancellor -- all Obama show. Well firstly you have to do is program bureau yeah you're remote control not to pick a bit MSNBC Nathan. It I don't take care about 50% of your problem right there. Boy -- you know I don't Ellen did -- let me get a -- or really that put Obama on every channel launched as well I'll tell you may denote something though I'll tell you it's not like he's dipped. Well for certain got to do this because. I saw a NBC news is gonna make about 750. Million dollars and -- A lot of that I I thought there was some story saying that limit their finally making money off of MSNBC even though their ratings are miniscule. They are knowing it's there you know they're waiting but can -- but there's three times what they work with that the and if people forget to MSNBC dot com -- like cnn.com they're really popular news site. How much CNN they have so -- they have so few viewers that Bill Maher last week said the N word and nobody noticed that. You said he did not hear -- -- senator Bob nice to see this is what many are. These Larry Kenney you can even though you didn't even know I know -- -- employees intercity and O'Leary came this week giving -- now. Whitey Bulger is one of the few guys in America that's older now but Larry yeah. Org could be -- the same -- I don't know. You don't hear about that the -- word.

At a British our bench seat. Yeah I don't remember that went -- channel went wrong I have -- -- it was so we additional -- Shinawatra. I miss it because you only. It was like -- the need to win that state to get the question is some paean to bolster up for your mom offer. I -- come -- tell you sure you -- voted on TV you know on the Internet at some would let it probably never to go to our. I'm almost -- it was there have been able would the version was a game show. And then you won quite a bit of money I think if you want but. And then the other thing is. What does it. It was a Chinese and Japanese version of outbreak or whatever the -- This is this is becoming a true view that I'd sell it I mean there's so many DM channel are we gonna call and say yeah.
