Yeah I you know I I every -- and had the pleasure seeing that show it to. It's up to me like real like Beavis and Butthead. The but the. The ratings just weren't there. Let's see. I'm just oh how we smoking crack cocaine is known to -- the enamel on T okay I thought it was a math thing. But I didn't think she was in the map.

Shot and your next with how we -- Max Robbins go ahead John. Hey guys I -- one. A -- it cracked in about Stewart award not -- view and beauty -- it but actually it's not yet. But it by the now. Where I'm the I don't believe they get paid -- forces real well. And and -- is doing extremely well in the ratings and its sister channel History Channel it's like. One of the real success stories the last couple years. Also known as a Nazi channel. Right. But -- -- shift know that particularly even more up market now.

Got a question it I don't -- you know a lot of experience to this radio just reassure our work our radio program like that -- You know sometimes bad things separate worthy chose. Yeah it jet jet -- Chicago code and all that exactly. The other question that's how well alt probably. Being able to buy dvds of the show what they call on the air. That's a good question. That's a really good question I mean. I think we got a little ways to go but I think what's gonna happen is we're increasingly moving to an on demand world we're. Depending on the level convenient -- what you're willing to -- targeted you're gonna be able to stream or download just about any. And and I mean that's one way -- DV also they'll go in that networks. -- combat the piracy that's what they'll do. Max Howard or dvds Obama put a model they are. TV and visit the bottom of the bottom has fallen out. Really the bottom has fallen out. You'd ever see any ads on TV anymore dvd coming hosted on you know such and such today. -- -- -- -- Do I mean it's it's it's it's looked -- the business is a completely out but it's definitely -- Go in the way of the eight track.

We -- have likes us watch getting onto this getting onto subways in various large cities so that's gonna and it takes him to be beaten within an inch of his life. -- -- Jaw a Joey you're next with how we -- Max -- or had Joseph. Gentlemen. No way -- -- -- big -- this question. Look at that without the threat. That CIA asked that question every week Joseph. Yeah again I think it's got a really good shot of the second season but it's not a lot -- -- it -- come back. There -- a lot of unanswered questions aren't -- ago. Plus the chalk talk kid hasn't come back to try to bust -- out of Plymouth Ratner yeah that's I wanna -- It does make of the TV movie or something you know and that's all I need to see what the chalk talk to one another season. I wanna see chalk talk kid coming out of that -- I'll come back. Thanks for the call Joseph thanks for the question 187746. -- in -- episodes of that was there like five whereas I did their running episodes of Perry Mason from the fifties like 3540. Episodes for season and. I know not -- the in the good old days I mean they use to describe these episodes are now. The quality and equip a correct. I mean what appeared basically exactly the same reached -- Yeah well you know Max Cabrera -- of -- I realize I've read a lot of I got into -- Perry Mason they're they're not bad novels just for you know which chewing gum for the guys. It's like a bottom on the on the TV series in India yup they they did you're right that's exactly the way -- -- And back in 67 or something near the end. You know they ordered 11. Color episode you know why they did it. Because I you're your employer whose name your employer institution is named after bill paley he wanted to see color episode of Perry makes. That was up. What -- -- -- just 11 episode. That's what this -- you know it's could go in the candy store. You know that's his you know -- the paley center you know we have.

Also went into -- -- normal after a general Richard away they went back into the cigar business that's I didn't know that there. 1877. But you know the thing about Alcatraz though is they didn't wanna -- up against Monday Night Football right -- -- that's what it boiled. Yes so they. Yeah yeah I think it's a little too risky. Skew male and and and and quite frankly money and it's a tough nights CBS's got a real strong lineup but it's. It's all about because you see and he's right I mean it came want like December January and then it was gone in March. That.
