No it -- that that the you get to be better than those a big time. That it Maria all right. But the problem is when they have those tennis any hearings. They they pull all the advertising -- -- Windows Beavis and -- starting. Beavis and Butthead is checked and open I had quite hear that somewhere else match I -- and -- and I'm slipping you know. But I -- incredibly. -- All of the good news we had in these troubled times good to know Beavis and Butthead this return. For -- 101 ways to leave the game show coming back. Now. Burn notice basho -- about burn notice returning screwed it big hit for US. -- -- be back in the fall we don't have they don't have launched. Is the Louis CK showed doing OK it's OK I think it shows that everybody -- the sellers funny. And it -- if duplicated costs about fifty cents. Raising hope. Raising hope is coming Spartacus. I believe so yes -- and and fans. Of stars which markets it's on to note that the making big investment in original programming. Only just did deal with the BBC. Help you know fuel and high level programming. It's funny the guy who kind of built the modern HBO. Stars. When does mad men return. First quarter 2000 well. Criminal minds. To the news that no one hated police say it's not coming back I believe criminal minds is still with us. OK Ike you're next with how we card Max Robbins web site I -- Tina. And then every time I call the it is all right all right a quick question about -- -- -- number ended Hulu could very urge you mentioned about. And I noticed some stuff is not on there. And those there's a lot of crap on there too but -- -- -- a lot the -- what's the formula for them to put stuff on people who are not. If they're dealing by network by studio cutting different fields everywhere and at some of it's only available in premium channels. So bid they have a certain deal what what networks. Do not have a deal with cool CBS okay she can never see a CBS store -- a CBS show one who. I -- at this point and and it's it's it's really tough because everybody. Each studio each network it's making all these shows as different idea what the program is valued what they want. It's on the free who service -- on the pay service its -- and in the -- we kind of lose that you wish there were to -- some sanity there'd be some kind of uniform. Planning and so consumers in a consistent way I would know what they're giving it where there and come to us. -- set too much that's always in these troubled times these are troubled times these troubled times. About how much open about you know windows opening a window world we're window washer on Wall Street. So we could -- -- NC these people going crazy and screaming and yelling. But He can't open the windows anymore so we can't jump out. You know I like this -- with a subpoena saying that maybe -- have legitimate reason for downgrading. US credit rating but. So -- isn't this the same company that said hey edging up. Nor have the right. That it Barney Frank was on that they talk about how they were were that they leave that part they let Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac from a run amok but. That didn't seem all that greater. Argument for him to be making why people -- general. His boyfriend on the payroll for a hundred geez just college I mean I think you got to yeah I think our party better. Part for you to just stick. Right he's got another he's got in a big problem coming up sometime I don't know when his new series is prohibiting is premiering -- kolbe. It's called Dodd-Frank financial bill big in Massachusetts. Skippy your next with Howie Carr and and then. -- -- I don't have questions regarding Betty White and the -- that yes. It. I can't really -- this set up for a -- and by the -- -- -- dead. Anything in about Betty awarding skippy. How well actually I'd love are in Cleveland but why aren't you and our regular. Network. -- because that TV went through the network that decided to produce it I mean it's as simple as that. Ritual that all about the old. Yeah old it's pretty good but it went well short of -- he's not watching that. -- -- -- -- they'll start re running -- I think pretty soon. I -- I would look for reruns in the fall probably maybe even late this month when the world we're looking when the new walking -- about a comeback new episodes -- Someone has just putters just posted the listing for you know when when turner but I liked turner died. Yeah you know we you know the headline from the New York Post that that right now I could be -- at the death. Boo. Who who hello. -- well. I thought it was float known reasons. If you are pretty info on the story line of the new Two and a Half Men -- the first first episode Charlie Sheen gets killed right. That's what TMC was reporting that days that is Charlie like it's hit by a bus or subway and a trip to Paris. I mean I think they've written it so that his character there's no way they can bring him back. And I really think they wanted to say. Is going to be the same show though just without with a new guy. I think you're gonna seal still a lot of you know sexual innuendo humor. But if they're gonna right at -- Taylor Ashton Kutcher He -- some -- he's that good comic actor proven TVs are. I'm predicting success will for a Wilfred. One of the strangest show this effort to make demand TB. I don't know if they picked it up yet that's on FX I think personally this if it's gonna season to check. How well this hells angels who for hell's kitchen to for fox pretty well I mean it's it not a real expensive show to produce and I think. You know they run and in the summer it brings in enough of an audience to make it -- a medium sized. -- true blood wipe out or coming back says -- true -- definitely coming back wipe -- problem. -- my daughter just asked how was partly ending. I don't know at the end like currently. Well I Carolina but -- -- -- -- I Carly I car yes Amanda cuts growth. Where the -- demo Jaime near next with how we cargo ahead Jane. Hi how you are maxed. To that question I've called before act as well I only wonder why it's not a -- You don't hear much at -- and I think it's fantastic stroke. I love to see that start and it and they don't get nominated short signature -- can look so that. There's no conspiracy about that it's it's -- sometimes some shows kind of click along and never get that kind of critical flaws -- And and make it into that. I don't know that that buzz worthy I know what has some loyal fans by. Yeah and season ending act -- fantastic. Yeah you know I heard some good buzz on it to -- and the it's topic gets tougher and tougher -- -- really cut well look water all the that's we have there I mean.

He doesn't -- I mean after one of the longest ready throws in the history television. It got canceled and after I think with 23 years. And end. But I I predicted this I think last week on the show how ya know yeah I I come back it's it'll it'll come back if not on fox somewhere else it's. It's too good of formula. And inspector already talking about coming back well. Because you know the time didn't they try to take them off the -- before and then a lot of people out there and want it in back to.
