Okay what's on what's going on in the wacky world of TV. At that at all inauguration all the time that the that the. And that's why that's where we have a lot of -- radio listeners today than normal hit they -- Problem but it. It was it was interesting you know I was watching the speech -- you know for your -- witnessing weakened yesterday with my side. Yes I could tell me sounds like -- week and again you're. Chris Matthews has got that. No no I didn't say that I just no what I'm saying is that. I think whoever's in that office that doesn't matter and it agency you know the guy went to went totally great in four years. But. -- -- a lot of interest and shows coming out mid season and favored a people business segment no favored by just I'd been great so far. Girl is open big for HBO at the second episode last night. Lot of showtime favorite shows like shameless -- -- vacation house allies all back. You know rock and -- in mid season. But but dynasties that -- gallery half the battle and I but it just comes up. You they hear your voice in the -- they admit I had the question mark. IIIIQ. Hit every time I hear that name -- dynasty. I think of who would like. -- there somebody -- week's fund document Donald Duck. God that guy he was young he was the intellectual -- and now. Whatever you're dot dynasties. And so I think give it to a. Every time I see Terry Bradshaw on TV now on those on a football game be on a pregame post game show I think it I guess he went I guess he would -- college with one of those guys. He's I think so it seems like those guys for the once kept getting hit now. A how -- suits do this week. It's doing well who is doing real well. USA network really fits into the formula there. Any in any word on Hart of Dixie it's the new Netflix show. They're hard to do is that what it's called there's -- Netflix series coming out. An original met with Netflix series the first when it it was William I'm blocking on the name of it now but patriots were disposed you we do it I think Kevin Spacey involved. Really yeah yeah they're expecting big things. Is Chris Maloney and anything since he left law and order SVU thanks Max and now. Boy it's funny you know I'm I'm not the studio today put yeah I saw his name come up peace he is doing something he is against his name associated with something. You can find that out for. 18774694322. You know we got a lot of complaints over the years about people saying that that the commercials go up and sound you you know war from the regular shows. And you know I was switch off the commercial -- was so quickly. You know when they come on I have never noticed that I was on the I was on the stationary bike the of today and somebody had the they had the big screen TV I'll pop up. I swear to god it was amazing what was going on you know every time a commercial came on and it was it just that the sound just were way up. I thought you we're gonna do something about that Max. Yeah did they weren't they were supposed to end it used to be how they got away with people's war was there it. This -- wounded in a commercial. Could be no higher than the highest volume during the shot up. It felt there was what is our -- fired or so but he's not a -- whenever. Hope -- -- They could get away with it I think there are some. Rules regulating that they did change it the FCC did take a look at it. But I think it's still a tricky thing to get -- -- 1877469432218774694322. Big -- big super ball -- Sanford Cisco while Baltimore didn't seem like you got the I mean -- I get cease differences -- becoming a big attraction like one month the -- quarterback you know twenty years ago but there doesn't seem like right now there are big piece of the -- these are two big -- teams. No no me neither team has say you you know big national following like K and and the other thing too is what you really want if your network executive -- got the super ball. You what teams from major markets and the better team that has a real national well. Yeah I know I mean I'm surely try to make a big deal out of these two Brothers but you know mom already tired.
