You know being in radio I was in radio when the show. Was on the year was obviously early in my career WP European Cincinnati.

At WW dot com stood largest title hot hands with guns we'll talk about that we come back on WWL. -- One of my favorite shows tonight I want to exit sits on BT because also one that ABC network. ABC family network and also on nick at -- John we've just -- -- tonight as well. My wife and kids with Dana Williams. And that is a great show about family and it's very very funny very very related point eight. Features a black family but it's not about a black family it's about a family May Day and leases have very very funny. We've been talking about the sitcom starts at constant and pass it cons. And number sitcoms are not coming back this year and a number sitcoms have been very disappointing in their performance. The the Big Bang theory given an extension -- three more seasons. It is attracting twenty million viewers. And did the one that Michael. Those issues were only attracting about a million or two and not very many people. And to put all of this in perspective. We talk about. The had a cable news networks a log on their show. Fox News is by far the number one cable news network. But the number one rated show on Fox News. The O'Reilly Factor. Only attracts. One point about one point five million people. Compared to twenty million to watch the Big Bang -- So we we talk about how powerful these networks are now concerned about this some of the messages on these networks whether it's the Fox News Channel or MSNBC. Think about it. Only one point five million people now while that's a lot of people it's not as many as you might think. And it's. In the key demographic of 25 to 54. The top rated show on fox the O'Reilly Factor. -- ratings are read only attracted 409000. People. Again. A lot of people but out of one point five million. Only 409000. Were 25 to 54. Now assuming that teenagers are watching it which I think is a good assumption that means that a lot of older people are supporting. Fox News. It's interesting and that's in my opinion that's a readings reality. Here's a text Don Knotts did win five Emmys but they were for best supporting actor. And I think at the time he was probably was a supporting actor but he was probably the best actor -- on TV. Here's a text don't forget about happy days and the text the -- it's got a lot of people bringing up other shows we're we've really been focusing on. On sitcoms three companies are great sitcom I'm gonna get to the blog tonight which use -- title hunt has with guns here just in mid -- wonder. Went to a couple these other things have been haven't bonuses. -- started tonight. I'm here's another text of mash debts it does -- ever know the went for friends. -- hear is attacks that reads. I never watch Frazier because I always thought and Phil Frazier was too gay. Isn't that what makes it -- I mean I think it's funny that people think he's gay and what they think he's and denials to what do they think the guys are getting on and on Frazier. Because they're neat. They're clean. They're intelligent. And they like. They like the arts. So again if if that isn't a description of being gay then everybody should Borland has people think they're -- I here's a Texan -- three's company was a great sitcom a for -- Mike you're on the school children to be WL. -- -- -- Well call it welcome. -- -- that was agreed -- -- -- -- I remember Beretta in fact one time -- do in my morning show I interviewed the bird I forget that it was a cockatoo. Red threat. Was it -- -- I -- I I didn't interview with a bird. -- And people won't go. You know that was fine it's hard to believe that that's where John Travolta got his big star on television. -- -- -- -- -- -- that -- a little bit. So you know. Oh. Yes I did too. All I. I thought -- did a good job when Shelley Long left and their Kirstie Alley team is Rebecca I -- I thought those those shoes were great as well attacked it's one of the issues that I mentioned. -- I get up to midnight and and and you know I'm I'm all hyped up when the show's over some liken it go home and -- fall asleep at 1230 adage here's comes on at 1 o'clock. And then it to a clock to Frazier recurrence come on so if if I'm home I'm usually watching that. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- I'm one I love now I I like. The later episodes better than them very very early episodes -- felt like the later ones better do you look at some of the very early Wednesday. And it's amazing I think that that she'll mated but they had enough confidence in it I'd do love -- failed so many classic episodes and signed Phil Davis. So many things that have become part of our our language. I Yani Yani Yani and the soup Nazi. Every time to somebody say no soup for you lord know whatever for him to have not -- But it. Wasn't political. But it. Could be just. -- Is anything wrong with that exact it -- -- -- sometimes on this show would somebody you know calls up and -- -- attacks and says you know you're -- a lot a lot of people think I'm gay and I'm not gay. But not that there's anything wrong with that. At -- Mike I'm glad you comment thanks for listening to WWL ignite Greg you're on the stooge of the -- -- -- just you don't just talking about sign belt and the media. My -- should calm. Out in recent. The recent decade of war. -- soccer gear into Asia and Larry David who grew. Was one of the few writers outside L. Got the creator of the bat that that was just -- should HBO. And you know I don't have HBO so I never got into -- but now it's on another network and -- I'm not sure which network but I and I need to get into that show because I have a regular stay regular donated. Watch because that side and old yeah same sort of consulting on culture you know that's not -- really really. But I can't do that not all about what is -- you know you were talking about -- I actually texted you earlier about the users. Watching them. But you know -- -- out there -- at night he passed away inject one thing that. I've noticed about people should generation. And it is cheers as they all watched. You and and but actually I don't worry you when I would go to was trying to gauge what it was. And not just you know talk about it you always the CNN. -- -- started a huge object -- -- -- watching fox and what you know and not -- start at exorbitant. And you've got a guy EDT shall -- out. And I'm not. What. And that few years of life. These shallow or watching old beat up and you watched you land. You know all of a table that. Anderson there's runners did you meet meet TV and -- intent to. Which. -- It's a comforting showed in the -- I I put it on in the background it's on in the morning and again in the afternoon so if I'm if I'm home -- -- -- -- -- -- times and it allows me to to actually work -- thinking about the show. In a relaxed setting it to me it's it's a real comfort zone -- I don't have vivid memories of watching them and I was a kid and I've I don't I've watched the reruns as an adult it's a brilliantly re real. And it was really just just chuckle about it elegant -- of my -- bad you know he'd be -- -- -- -- Would be out on that were what brought it over and over and over general. And should thank you would module he and Jerry Lewis will be -- network like -- and cool she. -- he went out there and I you know but and got a check those polls -- on the spot. McGregor program. I'm sorry -- essentially lost your dad and I'm I'm glad you had your dad and until it was 1990. And bring some people which is they can have a dead children nine. -- -- Called children thanks for listing here says text that reads. These pretzels are making me thirsty -- Another classic sign -- a we could ever get anything else on the show tonight I mean this is just too much funny sometimes it's it's good to just have fun on the show. Whether some other stuff that we need to talk about but Steinfeld gave us. So many things. What's in -- oh master of your own building. Which was reference to. -- you know. And needed. Or needed to use -- -- here's attacks that explains why Frasier and Niles were thought to be gay because. Because because they were both cities. Yes to some degree they work and they were so juxtaposed to through their dead and partner and I love that debt character and -- Andy and agonized -- the characters and Frazier very well defined although here's a show about it a radio talk show host. And I you know obviously that's very unrealistic because. -- The producer doesn't come on and announce who's on the air. All of the I have to tell you having lived in Seattle. They're very realistic. About all the references to Seattle. You know they say you know we say so and so from Metairie or from the North Shore or from shell meant. Or from the West Bank -- of these Guerrero when when they talk about to Bellevue way and Bainbridge Island. And it's. On. Canned two and -- talk about areas that are that very brits it's it's it's very realistic of of that area. And here is attacks to. Men bureau. A man and man oh man brawl all amid brawl that's right may have marimba wind Nguyen Cramer was working with George's dad. On developing a -- year abroad for men. You know man would start to get a little you know when they got older sometimes they get a little prestige. And to. So -- panic came up with this idea for a breezy here for men. And if there was an argument about whether they should call -- the row. -- demand easier. Happy fastest fastest for the rest of us. I yet so many things it came from side -- in that show was so was so brilliant the other thing that was so brilliant about signed -- I promise we're gonna get to some other things tonight but you know sometimes it's fun to just relax and talk about fun things that we just all relate to one of the great things about Steinfeld was that he'd -- Eat it assumed the audience was Smart. It gave you credit for knowing things. Quite often signed failed would have you fill in the blank. The writing would have you fill in the blank they wouldn't actually say it. And so part of it is it's it's referred to in in media as an emotional bond. If if you're allowed if you given credit for being Smart. And if you're allowed to fill in the blank when it comes to advertising when it comes to a sitcom like site. You develop more of an emotional bond with that show. And for example. When signed -- would say things but they really wouldn't say things they wouldn't implied. Okay what about when Elaine we stayed in the guy who didn't do everything I mean she really liked him he was good look and he -- a sax player. The intimate relationship was good but he didn't do everything. Mean it's okay Jerry and the only mistake it's okay Jerry but it's not like it would warning too but you see and they didn't really say it but you knew exactly what. They were talking about it. Here is and I love this -- -- operation Frazier in -- with ought to be gay because they were sixties. Soul. So is that what some people think evening if -- -- mr. C is. Well here's another look for signs out headed oh in order belly button was talking goodnight. Here is. A text how about Elaine dancing on signs failed yet that was that was pretty classic.

And -- very very ID you know that some somebody. Somebody got in trouble in in their workplace because they were talking about that episode. And they didn't mention. Her name but they mentioned what the name brought into. And is it a female body part. And he got this this person went to HR and complained on the sexual harassment charge because somebody talked about that in the workplace which I that was ridiculous. It's foreign glad you're glad you brought that up. -- -- would quite often what you figured out they gave you credit for being able to figured out and that's one of the reasons that subconsciously we've. We still bonded with the show. And they just and it's so much to it was sector relatable show. And I and they were just so many things that were believable about about life in general.

I'm here this is I say I never and all those reality shows I really didn't get into I have to admit I didn't really get into reality shows. Because I guess I know that they're not real.

And they went out and so when she came -- my brother thought you know I was probably the beginning of turning to the other side. And who knows that there -- that another great episode along these lines was Winnie lane was trying to convert the game again.

Oh and another great episode was the episode with Keith Hernandez. For the Mets and it was a take off on the Kennedy assassination because. Kramer and Kramer claimed they'd -- Keith Hernandez spit on him. All right we're gonna -- that -- just a moment. This is the -- you know. And were coming right back and -- WL.
