The Supreme Court Fight
"President. Trump will reportedly nominate Amy Cockney Barrett, a favorite of social conservatives to be the new Supreme Court justice. The president's decision to be officially revealed at the White House later today. Has been confirmed to the BBC's US partners, CBS News and other U S media. She would replace the Progressive Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who died last Friday. Nomination will set off a bitter Senate fight to get her confirmed as November's White House election looms. Our correspondent in California is David Willis. I asked him about Amy Cockney Barris Bad is a devout Catholic. The mother of seven and assuming her nomination is confirmed by the U. S Senate, she will be the youngest justice on the Supreme Court bench. At the age of 48 was seen as a front runner to succeed Ruth Beta Ginsburg, but she is nonetheless the ideological opposite. Of the woman that she is expected to replace. Miss Ginsberg was the leader of the liberal wing of the court and unequivocally pro choice. Of course, Ms. Barrett has called abortion in moral and since being appointed to the Court of Appeals by President Trump. 2017. She has twice ruled in favor of restricting access to abortion. Hence, liberals see her appointment is a potential threat to row versus Wade. That's the landmark 1973 ruling, which legalized abortion nationwide here. A lot of Republicans are very happy. Yes, Republicans on deed. The president's political advisors hope that this election will energize his conservative political base. Evangelicals, religious conservatives In particular Democrats. For their part, I think there may be hoping that this could inspire liberal voters to take to the polls in defense of amongst other things, Roe vs Wade in the past week. In fact, they pull several polls. Have shown that most Americans, including many Republicans, believe that the next Supreme Court justice should be selected by whoever wins the presidential election here in November, and not by Donald Trump. Before then, on that subject, though, there has been some speculation. Hasn't there that if the result of the November elections is disputed legally, that possibly this new lineup of judges could intervene on the president signed. Well, that's absolutely right. Bear in mind that last other justices have been improved in presidential election years. None has been voted on. After July And four years ago, Senate Republicans refused to even consider then President Obama's nomination on precisely those grounds that should be left to whoever Was chosen as the next president, but as well as key issues such as abortion and immigration, universal health care, the US Supreme Court could, as you say, be called upon. To adjudicate the outcome off this forthcoming presidential election. Should the result be disputed, as they're now seems every chance that it will be President. Trump has repeatedly claimed, of course, that the Democrats that trying to steal the election he seems Poised to challenge any result. Really, that doesn't declare him the winner, and this week he refused to commit to a peaceful transfer of power if he loses, and that's why And he's made this quite plain. He wants toe rush his nominee through the Senate by Election Day. How large in the psyche of American voters do you think the lineup of the Supreme Court is The Supreme Court is important, whether or not it actually masses a great deal to the average voter is another matter. I mean, they shape large parts. Off life here and, of course, they are appointed for life and its therefore significant that Amy Cockney Barents confirmation would shift The center of gravity on the Supreme Court considerably to the right, giving conservatives six off the nine seats, possibly for many decades, and the replacement of a liberal icon move played against the with an outspoken conservative like Amy. Tony Barrett has been called the sharpest ideological swing in nearly three decades as Faras, the highest court in the land is concerned, so the potential implications of this are significant. How much They actually count as Faras Day to day living. His concern of Americans here I think is another matter. The
Insiders scoff at Meghan and Harry's reported $150M Netflix deal
"We've been talking the last couple of days about Meghan Markle and hair, ese. Deal with Netflix. Okay. And there are some reports that have been saying that Prince Harry in Meghan Markle that their production deal signed this week with Netflix could be worth as much as $150 million. And Hollywood insiders are saying Absolutely not. There's no way it could be that much because they're producers, not content creators. So what The comparison is is to some of these deals like Shonda Rhimes, For example, you know who's created Grey's Anatomy on everything. She has a reported $150 million deal with Netflix and then the creator of Black ish Kenya. Barris. Also, that deal reported to be worth $100 million. But there's a top Hollywood agent who says that he'd be shocked if Meghan and Harry's deal was worth more than two million a year because they aren't creating these shows, you know, like Shonda And Kenya are creating the concepts writing. I mean, Shauna writes everything. Yeah, Yeah. Big difference. Mona Content she produces is extraordinary. Unbelievable. I mean, she writes she has a team to about 20. But yeah, I mean her her vision. Her concepts exacts important. You're showrunner and your head writer. They set the tone of everything right. So Harry and Megan, they're going to just kind of source it out and and they're going to hear a name on it. Yeah, and they're going to be producer so they'll put their name on it. But there will be other producers as well.

Shifted, they missed and say you know because I feel like our words are powerful, and you know as a writer. Responsibility goes so everyone of those words and I feel like. You know when you jump on and don't see things I saw something recently my publicist. And stuff, but I'm not gonNA. There were four black critics that had reviewed my show him saying. Did Not like the show, which is totally cool with that, but they chose to get together I read another round table about it, and I'm like. Is that like saying you guys are individually? Didn't like it nine and get together and talk about it on Black Tuesday on black. Saying this is your contribution to Tuesday's. You're going to release this tearing down a show that has so many different layers that you're not having even looked at because you think that this is your job to once again news. What are you getting from? This nerd? Saying like I feel like it, the the notion of That would never happen. Was You know what I'm saying with? The white show. What I'm saying the idea that these you know sometimes I feel like that is the responsibility is put upon us, and I accept it fully and totally totally totally. There were some reviews that weren't great. There are a lot of good reviews. They're reviews. There weren't great and I. Some of them are really appreciated him. Saying I didn't appreciate the think pieces. Saying I'm like. Why does it show a think piece of comedy? You need seven pages to to think of my show. Some of us, you know. Some of their views are my greatest stories. I read a review from a think piece from Atlantic, which was like my magazine. Which I love and I'm sick. You know closing because they told me things I missed in black I. Ask, Mike. How do you know what I missed Atlantic? But as I'm closing the laptop I got a text from Malcolm Growl like the Atlantic and my God you know what I'm saying like. The in terms of and he was very very complimentary of the show and. And, saying really nice things, and you know so I think that that is the nature of I am one of those people who read reviews so if you WanNa, fuck with me. They can what I'm saying because I might get an email from me. Though yes, they might get I want. My publicist won't let me send an email, but I want to. I want to every time. I really do I. Really Want to like I love these moments where I get to actually call them out. Because I I do care. Saying I do I'm not one of those kind of people who Mike I? Don't care I'm not going play that game I care will to that end. This'll be my last question, but a two parter. If it's okay, you're A. Did you enjoy acting? Is it something that you would want to keep doing? Has It you know? Has It affected the way you think about writing? That's party and then part B.. Have these criticisms that you're talking about made you more or less? Interested in. Continuing with black FDA, is it gonNA affect the the path that you go forward with absolutely positively. scariest thing I've ever did him saying it literally. Loose stomach in saying for most of the time I gained such a respect for what they do. You know what I'm saying. The idea of having a five K. camera put on you no matter what day you're having an argument, you having having to get in hydro motions and try to you know that's it's what they do is magic. I. Do not think that I would act again. Be On this show. Maybe I would do commercials. December I think that this is the thing for me what I'm saying. That's a career. That I wanted to get into something for me and I've had some offers, but I feel like this. The thing that I really enjoy doing. It was special for me to do it for this. In terms of the polarizing nature of the show. I feel like. The reason they show should get an emmy and I don't. I've never cared for say. The support is because about anything I've done is because that's what our is. Can I feel like the idea of? There's not another show right now that you can look back. Especially, we're going through. We talked about this all these things that we shot a year or at these things we talked about. The idea that blackish never was awarded it because the cool calm cool cable shows we're taking. This is the cool cable show. I felt that we talked about this and and during a time when everyone almost got to see it real time and the polarizing nature of it. Is Basically what I think most shows should be. Saying I don't want to ever ever ever ever do. Anything again does not polarize it because the way that you actually get people to talk as you have to have different points of view, but is this particular conversation over, or are you gonNA keep it going. Oh, I'm GonNa do it again. So season season two's coming. We'll see I mean if it if it's allowed to come, I'm doing it again. Well thank you so much i. always have really enjoyed yourself and I.

"My homework on. God regardless of that. It is Iran I don't know. I've never heard. Someone mentioned that back to me so interesting. All right well, so why? Why did you go with Netflix? And what is the? It's gotta be a pretty different experience to SCO from having to make twenty four episodes factoring in commercials factoring in. If if that was the case if those were the face. The reason that I am in love with Peter Roth. Like literally I, I I think that he is an old school studio boss like from a better year saying and he gets it in a way that I don't see a lot of. Guys getting in, and he is a class act I can think classes. The Class Act and I felt like that would have been a very. Having that would have been a very very very very difficult decision for being to make the only reason that I would made that decision was because. Netflix was it was would have been a place where I was not going to be developing, but making am saying and I was. Now pilots M, saying in our. System! Wouldn't go pitch. saying to networks through the you know that I could go, actually go make things in. That would have been the know. I had been through such I. Just done a pilot with to advance and felicity. Huffman about a black. Liberal Mary to a white conservative and they had show, and it was about like literally talking about, and it would have been a monster show. Like you talk. They used to have a thing ratio. Pilots. We did for re-shoots on it on news going. Beyond frustrated with the process of things, not going and I done pile, few other pilots and things that went and just. And so the notion of I think that frustration would have been the only thing that we've would have been the case. That would have kept me from not from Peter, Rossborough, because that's still my family, but it was the opportunity to go. Make things which Netflix's absolutely has stayed true to their word to make things into. Is Not really notes? It's boss that they give you know in in the the interesting thing about when you get thoughts and don't not notes is. Go do what you want to, but you know. WHOA, cancel you first season. There are big first season canceling. What I'm saying, and so you can literally offer your own demise so scary, but you also can go make a big big catch on in the game, so it was. They have lived. Up to the world word in a way that I cannot speak more highly of in. It's been a great situation, but I do. Love Peter Roth I do love what they do and I do feel like it I'm this network television sometime I? Just recently we know showed hoping in June eighteenth during the protests and I was like the idea of being able to speak on a weekly basis. To audiences with them, amount of sort of like precious like like we're right here. We're speaking to you, but what's going topical nature. That's a that's something that i. do sort of Miss. Because there is some time about the bundling thing, you can try and make them, but depending on how quickly you're able to get it out sometime. It's not as important as you'd like it to be especially when you like to talk about things, but I, you know I. DO enjoy it. So. Last couple minutes here. I just want obviously hone in on this first season of black AF. Where did you? Is this something? You've always wanted to a story? You'd always wanted to tell, but because of. The sort of network standards and practices and things you couldn't one on. One so the. Idea that people who criticized for being so close blackish like fuck yourself do like. I would do it again. Writers tell their stories in their voices. Of My favorite writers, he, how many times you toto, version of the same can story. You know what I'm saying Woody Allen. Returned her to. Say we owning like aspirin whatever. But You, know the writers. We love what I'm saying. They tell versions of their story and I thought this was a version of my story. That I think as much shit as took now. It's like yeah. Every episode was named because of slavery I'm saying twitter saying now you understand what I was talking about. Yeah, I did another June eighteenth episode twitter. Critics critics. Do you understand? Why did it saying like the notion of like? The idea of trying to tell that story is important to tell over and over and over again because it's needs to get hammered into the idea that we're part of this fabric of this country in a way that you're not seeing would have been because I can. I can hear you know what you're saying, and I'm wondering. Do you think it might have people some of the people that gave it a hard time? Would they have maybe had a different response? If it had dropped last week instead of two months ago, of course, saying everybody has has something to say you know what I'm saying. The show was not perfect and I'm saying I feel like I'm I'm a crappy actor. You know saying I got better, but I fly some of that crappy acting. Actually help the role and are true actor couldn't have played. That role would not have been the same show him. Saying been his loud been does noisy would have been. Isn't there an actor already playing? You want to show you know they're. Everything was thought out I feel like for the most part it was I. think the most talked about comedy maybe in twitter on twitter period. You know what I'm saying in terms of Hashtag I would not do anything different. I feel like I. You know I am. The critics you know I. I have never seen because there are so few black creators saying they get to do this. We are often at the mercy of social media in Craig's. Because they we get our stories. Don't get viewed in a completely different way. It's you know we're the. It's three of US telling a story for you know thousand different archetypes. What I'm saying, so it's like you can only CH- pick in only so many people are going to get your story and I feel like. All the people who sort of like you know criticize you know this or the color there's an ended knows based on my family. Did my wife was biracial didn't didn't understand the because of slavery that I'm saying that there's generational trauma that affects beings and talks a undoing. Another June teams episode because I want June team to eventually become a national holiday.

"Necessarily, they were sort of he might do jokes about. The black community that he wanted people to laugh with white people to laugh with, but they were laughing at you. Know what I mean more than. It seemed like that was the issue that caused him a lot of concern I guess he's gotten past the because we're now seeing him hit him back at work. Thank goodness, but. Was that ever something? You had to think about where it's like. Because, you're playing to both audiences with blackish, it's not as it's not a put in a box show where this is a black Sherman as to why. You ever worry about I guess the phrase. I'm trying to remember what people say. It's like code switching when they talk about and not not one day honestly now, not one show I. We I learned really early on. Because I had so many fellow pilots that this show is probably not going to make it. And, so I was like. If it's not gonNa make it shows, don't make it. It's not gonNA. Make It on my terms and Vicki Dummer who I love the head of. Or Head of ABC curve. and. Listening amazing executive would get notes, and I had a moment I started message I t's about say whenever they push back, but knows because it was such a different show than. They had done before. I would say well. You know culturally speaking, I don't think. Of Your, cultural. And it became sort of like my a little dog. Whistle to the idea of like is. Let me do this him. Saying I can, it's going to work or not, and if you WANNA to cancel the cancer, but it was. They ended up letting me have a lot of freedom. I'm not sure I still look back. At, Lemons in June eighteenth, and hoping to end word, and just like some of these episodes that we were able to do my, how did we get excuse me? How do we get away with doing? You know what I'm saying and I think it was because. It was such a unique show at that time that I think a lot of things actually became derivative of in some aspects in a good way. It was such a unique show that time and ABC had stumbled into something that we kind of all realize it at the same time that they really gave us a lot of freedom, and they were very very some of the best executives in terms of allowing that show to have a avid stories. That I could have worked with. I know just just for people wondering who the executives the main players were. It was as you mentioned polly until I. Think it was maybe season two when channing dungy comes on the first. Season Three. Yeah first black female to lead a network did that in any way impact what you were doing or it was just a just a thing that was going on in the background, and the channing channing was always very supportive, saying Shit, the unfortunate job of having to come talk to me about episode I didn't get to air. And she did it with the most humanity I've ever seen an executive. Tattoos on her is when she talked to me her Vicki dummer. About the episode she was always an advocate. Pau had set the show up in such a Cheney Mata actually came season four, but but she was. She was changing on such an advocate of the show. You know the studio. Who Ran Ran At the time by Patrick Moran. Amy Harper was studio executive was beyond supporter. You know saying. They argued they were scared because they're the bank, you know what I'm saying, but we were. We were getting a lot of critical acclaim, even from shows that higher ratings from us in critical acclaim can give you a lot of guards you know. Put some guardrails up for us, and so we knew that we were probably going to be around. We Tracy Anthony Lorentz who were in those amazing kids and we felt like you know sometimes things like that happening. You know and you're. You're integrate play, so we had a really supportive studio. You Know Bob Eiger who? Who I think you know. I I joke that he was made. Maceo factory like Hi. Bob Eiger reading for the role of Co because he's such. The perkasie like could not have been more supportive and understanding, and behind the show, the personal letter, a personal calls personal notes the Stop is you know the the you know the heralding the show in the way that he did so from top from the very top of the bottom, only person that I never really job with at that place was been Sherwood, and that's one of the only people that I really to this day. Feel like I. Don't care about that guy. Saying. Margie he came on. He comes over to me, is he? was he was a bully? Saying he was a bully who gotten a news and then somehow stumbled his way up in white man world into a position, he was not in any way suited for. And you know I'm certainly not going to harp on this point because I know we're. GonNa come to in just one moment to black half, which is whole whole new chapter of your life, but I think to to discuss how one led to the other I. Just have to at least ask you if you can share you know people know the the broad outlines that there was this up so that you just referred to please baby, please which ABC financed. It gets made it's so there was clearly at one point and intention to do something with. It wouldn't have gotten that far in the process, but what? What was it about? And why didn't it from your perspective? Why didn't go on the air and caused the? And why did it 'cause what it seems like was the final Straw in your relationship with with that network. I think we had creative differences I can say that. I think there were creative differences. I think it was a really different time in society. Saying I think there were a lot of things happening within the company I. Think that we you know in the best way possible decided to you know. The the changes that needed to be what needs to be made for in order for it to be on. Arab was not something that we could come to. An agreement on. We decided to part ways the in the most end the most amicable way, humanly possible and you know I think the things behind it like there's no version of Bob Iger races at all. You know what I'm saying the most. Could not be further from that in terms of my dealings with him. It was no I had no. Negative feelings about. As studio at all, I still remained very very close and still have a really good relationship with most of those people there are it just was you know the time act which actually speak to the time where now just people know we're talking about here I. Mean it was basically and please correct me if this is wrong, but my understanding was an episode that was gonna sort of be a bedtime story that was to be. Getting into what are our times are actually like which at that moment there was going to be a little bit about trump and Charlottesville and NFL kneeling and all of that and so at a time when ABC was. Disney was was in the process of trying to acquire Fox It might have been a thought of theirs or Ben. Sherwood or whoever that? We can't do this now because this could jeopardize our ability to complete that deal. Do you believe that that was their reason? For primarily their primary reason for. Preventing that from.

You know alternative history that. Happen. Well in a way of course I, think you. You still got to be a teacher with a lot of these episodes that you you did on a blackish or with black ish and you know the ones that always get talked about, but I think for good reason season two episode sixteen hope about police brutality, which you've said you had quote never been afraid to turn script in close quote season for episode. One June eighteenth, which we've talked a little bit about, but. I think one of the big moments in your life and career. It seems is that you got to really through this work. Get the attention of somebody who sounds like you've always really admired. And who now is your biggest fan and who we've had on this podcast and that is Mr. Norman Lear and You know people like to sort of reflexively. CEO Black Ish is the the Modern Day cosby show but I think the way you've talked about. It's actually more the modern day. Good Times, and that was a show of his that you were very familiar with right so I guess just getting. Can you talk about Norman? Lear in the role he's. Come into your life, and you even had them in your writers run at one point. He paid much more of a role in my life in Bokassa. Did what I'm saying? I think the cosby show was. Amazing arms I know the bill. Cosby is done horrendous things I'm saying. It's SORTA hard sometimes because I see that like they've taken off the air. You know and things like that, but the show I argue some time because I feel like. Where do we separate art from artist? You know and and we're not GONNA do that. We close the museums because museums are full of beautiful thing that made by people you know. But, that show was a changed a lot. emceeing changed a lot of things, but the thing about the cosby show was. It could have basically been white family. Bill felt like he needed to do that time, but that was the first time that I saw like my white friends WanNa have the same dad that I wanted to have you want cliff to be your data, my Gosh, so it was a great thing for a lot of people and brought us brought us closer engage aspirational for a lot of little black NY, kids but Norman. Lear. I would to this. Is is on the family meets guitar. You know what I'm saying, so it's just really being honest and true to things and saying things that were sort of a part of his guys that people may not here on television you know and I'm Norman continued to every I just went to the God I happened to car him. I just went to the live. Live taping Lascher I think of all the Family Armenian Kimmel. Did and it was it was it was shocking, leaned over normal like they. You could have changed words and written this yesterday, and it's amazing that that's how a little house our little. We grown in terms of television writing impairing was like all of a sudden. This is a guy who had multiple. Hits, you know what I'm saying. Legitimate solid monster shows on television, and then all of a sudden because selling soap, and the bureaucracy of television became such a thing. We all of us didn't weren't talking about things anymore and I love Marta Kauffman. She's you know has become a know. We've become friendly. She's become when I really admire. And I saw recently, and it really made me love her even more. She regretted the lack of diversity. You know what I'm saying. and which is one of the greatest shows ever, but I remember looking friends and saying what part of New York is this success by? They're not even a Puerto Rican waitress like the notion arm, but that was not something that she wasn't doing purposely, but you'd have to seek that out. You don't seek out diversity. So when we did Black Ish, it was more than attrition. Herman Lear by. Cosby. Show was a family that happened to be black. You know what I'm saying. BLACKISH was a family that was absolutely black every week. It was about you know because you live in your blackness. He live in your. If you're Irish, you live and your Irishness, Italian living in China's and so the idea of like. Not Having a family that lives in their skin and lives in there being and lives in that place every day. It was weird to me so I was like. Let's let's have. A show about the, but also let savage show that reflects that there are strides being made what I'm saying. A doctor I'm a writer is no rainbow on televisions, a doctor in the actors out executive there are strides being made and little kids that. I have and then I see around. My kids don't look at the little black his I. Remember growing up and I was like. Let's talk about even though you're talk to give your kids more than you had. In the process, and that was sort of a concede in the spinal with blackish world. You mentioned Dave Chapelle earlier and I wanted to ask you if you ever could relate to something that he's talked about where he you know achieved great success with Chapelle show, and then walked away from a lot of money to keep doing it because in his mind, white audiences were not hearing the jokes..

"Where I love Landgraf I started this day love. We're I i. think he's a genius. I think he's one of the best network executives going in terms of like really taking chances and letting creators be creators, I also knew there was a scope to what he did in saying, and I felt like in order for this to really really make. The Dent that I wanted to make an open the doors. I wanted to open which a lot of those moments I learned from Sandwich Shonda had done with her shows says she opened so many doors for so many of us. I wanted to make sure that the scope and the broadband you know capability where I was going was enough to really actually hit a real number. Saying be show that people say oh, and then you know Paul, who bought who's the president of the polly was the president at ABC? The way he courted the show. Was Amazing. You know we were very close to go on NBC. Because for the reason, the show is picked up. Have was doing a show in Cannibal at at NBC the relationship there, but the way Paulie court at the show, and the would ABC doing with Family Sitcom for awhile was really interesting, and I had this dream. What if we could come on after about family? Just I was the opportunity and that happened. We got scheduled after modern family, and it was it only happened one time, but I remember making a bet with the studios that are original number are our premier number. It's going to be modern family and it never happened again, but it did. I think the aggregate number because it was you know black people show up for each other, and not because we're on that network, a lot of other people showed up for us as well. It's just interesting I I didn't know this and I think people might find interesting most of the time about more than three quarters of your audience of black. Ish was white, right? Absolutely and it was and we would get I think a lot. You know we. Did not start off per season like that. But shortly into the first season. The juggernaut of empire came up and. I think it was a scheduling snafu on I fought against it. M saying I'm calling everybody and making the 'cause I. Please do this. They took us off. Because Fox was doing baseball in. They didn't want to put they, so they took us off and they scheduled us back on three weeks after baseball I at one off and. During that three weeks, empire came on. An Empire. We had not seen I still don't think to this day to network television I. Show that crew every week for like seven weeks straight monster numbers monster number Mostert ever monster like it was like we had not seen that, and what happened is there's only. So much. You know if there's a movie, you said only so much box office. You know what I'm saying. There's only so you know. Empire at one point I heard a crazy stat that twenty five percent. Of African American the. At one point. We're watching it live. It was because there's not that many of us. I'm saying here and that like a quarter where at some point, we're tune in. It was a Juggernaut, saying and so a lot of our viewers. We'd lost during that period and we never got the back. We did GET THEM BACK IN D. Was it svod yeah things like that online, but we gloss I'm so we know a lot of our audience over our overnight audience. was you know a portion of the modern family audience and that was? Something, that was a blessing and a curse in some in some aspects, people felt like well. That's not a real. You know what I'm saying. Black show or whatever, but then people like you know organizations, which I always have my heart to like nebulous. EP WE SWEPT, and we've swept six years straight and I don't think a show has ever done that and we were just honor buyer. In a way that we. CanNot I cannot imagine and then we started ticket. No Golden Globe nominations and Emmy nominations, and we WANNA. Pee Body, one AFC Tracy won the Golden Globe we won. We won basically all the words except an emmy. It's. All I guess so begs the question because you. You mentioned that coming up as a writer you're you're some of these shows were clearly in your mind. And I think in a lot of other people's all right. This is a black show. This is a white show in your mind when you're writing blackish. Who was your audience that you were imagining? I wrote it for. I'M GONNA. Give you the honest answer. Yeah I wrote it for for my people same for my community, but I wanted everybody to watch it him. Saying I'm a populous and I, don't run from the notion that. In order for us to really make change in saying, we need a big box office and the only way that you get big box office is that you have a multicultural vast proof? That sort of sample sure your program but I felt like the thing I learned. Music was a really big part of this. You know what I'm saying, but also we all we learn as writers and telling our stories, the specific speaks to. To universal you know, but like you can look at music and new kids from Idaho, who had never seen before, and they heard snoop in socks. They're like I dunno decrypt looks like sounds like this guy seems real. You know I think that. There was a honesty and specificity of the black ish that spoke to a lot of different people, and that really helped to open up that that word in a different way. So when it went on the air after a few things that now seem kind of left, but I don't know if they were funny to you at the time, but I heard they'd. At. One point asked you to call it the Johnsons or urban family. Stuff like this just like crazy crazy stuff. And obviously changing the setting from a TV writer's room to what it became at an advertising agency I guess. Prior to all the success, which started pretty quickly with blackish once it was on the air. If your career, let's say that had not been ordered to series in. You were back to where you were before blackish. Could you have been happy and content? And or did you feel like in your in your career? You were not. Realizing your potential, you're not fully you know. You're not as successful as you'd want it to be prior to blackish. How is how basically let's imagine verse? Where didn't have? I've never been asked that question. I was becoming really frustrated. You know. I felt like I had started. Getting in rooms with show runners that I didn't think were. Going to be honest, I didn't think they were talented. I was working on projects with people that I felt like we're. Seemingly doing much better than me. They didn't have you know a tenth of the of the town that I had I saw a lot of. My friends, really good friends of Mine Alex on March Ferret sold Mr Sunshine. It was a big show matthew. Perry and I came and worked on it, and they couldn't hire at. The studio wouldn't didn't approve me to get hired and. I was like this is I was I was getting really frustrated so I? If I'm being honest, I I don't know I would have done in I'm saying I don't know that I would have continued. You know especially having a family and maybe I would just no staff have been happy being staffing, the television landscape change. There were less opportunities on quote. UNQUOTE BLACK SHOWS I wasn't getting the look on on mainstream shows. I don't know I would have I'm a hustler, so I would have figured something out, but I don't know that what my life would have been honestly. Did it. Give you any sort of a cushion because I know I've I've glossed over this accidentally, but I mean you mentioned. TYRA banks earlier and then I think in early thing in your air career..

"Because sometime you know like if you're working for black showrunner, oftentimes, they would be much more. Mindful of the staff, so it would be you know into integrative stop, but there's still a lot of black writer, so it was i. don't think I ever worked for an all black SAF inner saying I think that it was so you know integrative, but it was more, but then there was times when you'd be on the white show and I definitely been the only black rider on a couple of those versions I think that the notion that you I constantly sort of for myself, and and I do think that in some aspects of might have had something to do with. Some do with you. Know may have some of the success that I is that. I knew that it was really important for me to sell a pilot every year. You know in a different way than just. I wanted to sell a pilot I wanted to make sure that you weren't gonNA. Marginalize me and say. I'm just on this show that the executives at the network studio. We're going to hear my name. We're going to see me come page. We're going to actually see me as a sales. We're GonNa see the things that I can create and do all my own outside of these shows that I think. Think they were marginalized I worked from his show, called the game and it when it it moves from cw to bt, and when it did broke cable records shattered them, and I remember going in the staff meetings in network, sappy music executives, and they were showing you on and I'm like armour. Ron I'm the game and I kind of said probably the first couple of times, and they were like. Excuse me. What shows that and I'm like you know the show that just broke every cable record ever and it was like this is your job. You know to know these things and if it had been. Girls got you know margin was great show, but did not get you. Know got six hundred people a week watching it. You would know you would know that show. But here's a show that shattered black white, all the things that people didn't know that show, so he was I started seeing those moments, and I started realizing I had a really really good friend, who still my good friend, but you know we're talking about the ratings on the game and he said yeah, but those are all black people watch it. And, he didn't mean it fucked up at all. He's my boy. He meant it probably would. That's how people were looking at it. And I'm like yeah, those might be a lot of people watching. But they spend. They spend money. Those is those are the, but it was I understood that that was how. It was really important to me. Every year to sell pilots to be in those conversations are keeping you know. Every hair gang is a solo pilot to let it get to different levels of whether it be. Getting getting shot, getting close to getting picked up getting you know I. I kept it going also became you know how to family really young, my wife as medical school, and also became a necessary part of my income. He wasn't just like selling pilots because I wanted to I. needed that x amount of money. Saying and I was really really also interested know. Every pile you get a little bit more, you know it's like building contract and you're trying to build up to a number where you have some. It's a respectable number and I. I understood that game and playing that game in the became. Something was really educational for me. Do you think looking back? You know if you can be as objective as possible where any of those pilots that didn't get picked up where I know a few of them got got even as far as being produced I think three of them, but then go on here where any of them on a par in your own mind with what you eventually did with Blackish, yes. So that that that must have been A. Frustration yet. I mean you know a few stick out? A few were actually done over in a different way by other people that was show I think that blackish was special though I. Think because it was. Even the shows others I feel like might have been part of my writing. It was lacking was very personal. It was the moment that I stopped I gotTA. Have my fucking moment and also come not gonNA. Try to appeal to anyone else. I'm going to tell my story that actually. I'm not gonNA pull any punches and I felt like I knew my story. And you learn as a young writer. Most of those first things that you do are your stories. You know what I'm saying whether you're putting yourself on A. On a ranch or on? A space care what I'm saying. You're basically telling our version of your story and I decided to really tell my story and not worry about you know what happens. I was telling someone actually like there's. There's never in the history of television been a pilot. That's picked up because you took every note. Saying, they've never said you know a guy. This probably really isn't good, but he took every note, so we're GONNA pick it up. With with that being said in knowing, I tell running around doing writers like respect for the process be collaborative. Be something that they want to work with, but also understand be true to your vision, because whether it's when goals are doesn't go. At least you can kind of stuck to my guns so blackish. When the pilot was put out. There became a I. Know a big. Focus of a bidding war between a lot of different places and I think in your mind. You were originally thinking it would be good for. Lied at then end up. At ABC, a network which comes with its whole different set of constrictions and requirements that obviously would be an issue. In some ways later, but why? What? HOW DID IT END UP AT ABC instead?.

"Like this. Not like this I. Tyler was my best friend. We caught us off cousins. We grew up since we were babies. Just thanks Tara Tara. Banks and I moved in with her. She was actually living in a Hollywood hills. Pretty Nice House what I'm saying. We moved Anna so it was a little bit not Sir Realistic for me, but you know we had. We were young and we sat are falling outs and kick me out. The House one day, and I had to go to I I didn't know what I was going to actually thought. I might get into politics. I was working for City Council. This councilman Nate Holden. My mom you know knew him and got got me the job and I. Wanted me to start talking about low level. Running for office and things like that, so that might be thing I. Did publicity for a while I. Did Music Publishing Barabra? I always knew I wanted to do something with comedy I, always really really enjoyed writing our lady Felicia Henderson got me a job on sister sister sister, see start helped me get until the communist comedy writers program for Short last. They've been got it. I got a taste of it and I knew that that was I. wanted to be a director. Maybe when I was in college because I was Dr. Arthur who was spike? Lee's mentor saying I work. But became mine but I knew the. You needed money to put up and writing all Anita was a laptop. And being. On a show I was on sister. Sister You I. One day. The budget came across my desk and I looked accurate I. Tell every PA look at everything that comes your way. You know what I'm saying. And I looked at the budget and Asala riders thing and I was like I took a pencil out, and I was like this guy is going to make this week. More than I'm going to this more than I'm GONNA make this entire year with taking extra mileage and doing taking home, waters, home, or whatever the case might be and I was like this is. So that was sort of my. My Way and I felt like with television. You really get to be the more of a boss's the writer on film you know saying you're kind of a little bit more of a tool, so it was. It was our good entry. Point into that that place for me I read I. Think it was in a New Yorker profile of you a little bit about how you came to know Felicia D. D Henderson who I think at the time was writing for Malaysia, and you just mentioned the paramount writers program, which was sort of the way it was described in that article was that it was a diversity initiative. Can you talk about I? mean the way you came to meet Felicia. Henderson was out of a little bit of frustration at the landscape of TV right. Yeah, we had we were doing. Black Nawar or something like that, but it was about the notion of. What was becoming almost starting to be viewed by mainstream once again. Quote Science Breaking News Writers. As chitlins circuit. Sort of you know what I'm saying, you know the you had that uptick of of net. Let's now with the UPN. The WBZ's the things like that. That were coming about and they knew that they needed. Is You know and because black people show up and support each other? They would put on opening on black shows, and so you have these black shows that were coming on, but the plan and police ended up a great academic writing of visas on this is that this was the plan that they use box in the same thing they would. Get these apple. These African American shows on get is to them seemingly creating show runners right seemingly and creating careers and they went, did give a lot of people opportunities, but then once they started getting enough is, and they got advertisers to sort of say they have enough is ticket are? They slowly would start Mo- moving in Dawson's Creek. They slowly would start moving mary children. They saw the idea they would push out he no, because now they had is, and it was a a systematic form formulated way of once again building something up on the best the backs of black labor. You know what I'm saying of our of our sort of. Places are give to this country. which was that time was was comedy saying unsorted back comedic voice, and then once we got there. They moved us out. You know they're now to be fair. There are quite a few ways that still remain from there, but a lot faded away because it was the notions in the rhythms, the the. Quote Unquote mainstream comedy was was written in produce. Those weren't the same rhythms that we you know. We were writing under, and so they were not. They would put us in rooms with when mainstream shows what happened and say well. You don't necessarily get how this goes or then make us. Diversity Writers, which became an initiative and I was a diversity right, and was the worst moment year. We could have a situation where someone looks at you and they. Deserve to be there and they're just waiting for your year to be up. And you know and then when you try to go get recommendations, they should on you. You know so. It was a really difficult thing to do, and in fact, correct me if I'm wrong, but I think that when you originally envisioned. which there's a lot in between those moments which I'm GonNa, ask you about, but I mean wasn't originally set as a writer who was. Wrestling about being a diversity, your higher for TV writer's room. It was literally true. One hundred percent my story. You know what I'm saying. where I you know, I had. There's a moment in the black pilot when they asked I try how A. Black. Guy Say Good Morning. What I'm saying that question Absolu was asked to me like one hundred percent. It sounds like and I was like I'm probably pretty much like that, but like no. Let me check in at the next meeting and make sure there's A. No changes. But like that question was absolutely asked to me and asked without malice you. And I I saw Dennis. Being asked without malice, see now in with some success a little bit differently. I felt like might be asked. Although maybe not without malice without a lot of care, you know and I think that that is one of the things that we're seeing now. In terms of what's happening is that people are saying like? I didn't mean anything by it, but I didn't take a lot of time to think through. Saying although that's not malice. It's the causative balance. Because the effect are often as the same. And I guess that this was a consistent frustration for the years that you were a writer on TV prior to blackish coming along before you created blackish 'cause Felicia Anderson so you interviewed her for that documentary. It looks like around nine, thousand, Ninety, eight blackish was sold in two thousand thirteen, so there's fifteen years there where you're making your name in TV as I know that with Felicia I. Don't know if it was your first. Writing Job on TV, but you go to work. Then having met her, you go to work for her. On the only black family family drama on TV at that time, which was soul food, and that's in two thousand, and then there were a lot of different things along the way where you're in a writer's room, and then I guess on the side writing your own pilots that you're hoping will will get a life you know. Get be given an opportunity. Can you talk about the the grind of that time like when when you're in those writers rooms? How does one stand out in terms of getting the chance to to hopefully move up on the food chain? How does were you finding that there? At in those days you were truly the the only person of color in a room and then what was happening with your own work? These eighteen pilots that you wrote before blackish that that just didn't end up on the air. It was interesting..

"Moments that I've seen. During, this whole thing and I felt like that sort of what we're taught. Any sort of marginalized group or group was going to know bins of your car. Just have to keep going you take that and you. You know you take your limbs make lemonade and I feel like it has definitely formed in purple part of my comedy, so for people who grew up with that you know. Maybe we didn't know that these things were going on, but they just wear your friend. How would they remember the Kid Kanye barracks? Were you writing a lot and doing things like that? Even then where you consuming a lot of television or other things like that I? Mean curious what I was. TV was my babysitter. Mom worked a lot him. Saying TV was my babysitter. Inappropriate television. In could be now, but like you know I remember watching us now. You know I remember. Seeing you know raw I. Remember saying Oh tapes of live in Concert I. Remember listening to that negative crazy and I remember you know, but at the same time I listened to Bob by down mine. Carlene are this into whatever but I you know Saturday night live. Thing I would staying. I was way way too late watching it way too early, but. I got it. I started getting at an early age and became my sedative. What I'm saying it was my opening. Opium in a really got me through and. Also was a big comic book head you know, read all I was a marvel I. You know what I'm saying.

Expert was so much more exciting, but are you know I was definitely part of that also was a kid who had asthma are young age, so I wasn't in outside as much as I should have been, but once I got out I. Really fucking got out. You know your good athlete in Middle School. Right I was good athlete. I was. Also in the in and out the streets. What I'm saying once I sort of I kind of had that.

Reading about you to learn that there was sort of a before and after moment and again involves your dad I wonder if you can share what I'm sure, I'm sure it surprised him as much as anybody but. I was like I was like. Did you set this up? He. My Dad was a boiler boiler operator at some line boiler operator at General Motors and that's the guy sort of he was in charge like mixing the chemical that makes the paint stick to the cars, trucks and truck was was coming in, and he was back, told her to back in, and whatever was labeled on the outside of the Charles, not was actually inside a truck had been miss misfield. He put it in. A big toxic cloud came up. It was well documented advantage. People die, he lost a long. We got a considerable salvant especially for us. I mean now wouldn't be but at that time it was a considerable selman. He and my mom have been married for twenty years, so she got half. He was not happy. My Mom. Took what she could and I'm saying and you know whatever parts we guide she. My mom was also very industrious and. Self starter and she went started life different for us. We would have necessarily been original plight, and for people in the L. A. Area just to think about it in their own minds, I guess it was going from Inglewood to Hancock Park.

Things that we've been seeing for years, but haven't. Mobilized against? It I wonder if this moment would have been possible without the Cova break. That's the thing rice coincidences is mathematically impossible sending people. People were home. People were out of work. People were home. People were frustrated. People were scared. You know and it was the sequence of events that led to this being able to happen globally you know and being able to give the response and the unification globally, and I feel like sometimes on. Things that we don't see our. You know setting us up for things that WorldCom. You know so I I definitely agree with that completely. I think that the the timing was less than appropriate in less than you know what we would like it to be, but at the same time Parker timing for it, so it's been you know. I've always twenty twenty jokes that everyone else has him saying I'm waiting. Aliens like everyone else. But you know it's age of Aquarius. It's you know rising from Phoenix. Sometime. This is. If, you went back and looked at great change throughout history. They were moments like this. That seemed to be a lot of things compounding aggravating into what may hopefully be a moment of change. Absolutely well all right now to do our traditional star, which is to just ask you. So, for folks who may not know, where were you born and raised in your folks do for a living I was I was born in between wondering McCormack moved to Inglewood on. My Dad was a general worked at General Motors in Van. Nuys California was assembly line. Guy and my mom was kind of a do whatever she needs to do. You stay at home. Mom Slash real estate broker slash insurance. Agents slash works at department stores during during the holidays slash whatever she had to do. You know to sort of help? Help it pitch in, and they part ways when you were quite young. Right? Yeah! Before I was ten I, think they. Done we actually before that they were officially done by the tunnels like nine or ten. So do you know why they gave you the name Kenya I do? My Dad was a black of the nation of Islam, and he was you know at that moment he was a he was in the nation's doing quote, Colson because it was more so of like. You know being a black NRA member at that time, but. He was A. Revolution, you have. What do you say on Black Ish? Black Bob cats. Their? Their uniforms were much more conducive with the. Lifestyle. But. He's recently passed away, but he was a very interesting guy, but. You know wanted to have our. You know our kid whose name felt you know Acura? Centric, and was you know it's interesting because you? I did a whole episode about this news something that I find out so many things like the Liu Qantas and Tatyana and sacred necas, and all that that was an attempt and people often make fun of those names I'm being I'm being one of them, but what I actually found out was that was an attempt. During a time when? Blacks looking for national is sort of point of view for themselves to say. We're not in part of Africa. Saying that has been part of our coaches and take off and not a part of necessarily a fully accept part of this community. How do we form things that feel like they are part of? African. American nationalism in this country is in those names. When I started hearing, I would never make fun. I'm another one of those names because it was directed town at trying to liberate. Trying to find a sense of self within a place that. By. The nature of Jim Crow itself was not really meant for us to. Have a sense of self so I. You know those moments June team for me. It was like ice. June t high, but then I realized that as much as I love hotdogs and fireworks. How can? How can four seventy six independence day when everyone wasn't free in on, it took me sort of getting behind the curtain, pulling back, actually explaining what my revelatory moment was to the world and my writing, and that was something I was really happy that show allow me to do. The same thing in black. So only because a you've spoken a lot about this before and be because I can't imagine it didn't majorly shape the person who you are today I want to ask you I mean you've said there were quite a bit of trauma as the where you've used the within your childhood starting. Very young I mean stuff that you know losing a brother, a younger brother, young age experiencing physical abuse from your. I believe your father. And then the most kind of mind blowing for me to think about is when I guess at about six. You know you see your father kind of come in without being invited in and your mom shot him, and that was something that he survived but i. mean that's gotTa have a big effect on a on a kid, especially at that young age so I just. Hope, it's not too personal question, but I'm just curious how these things how you think. They impacted the person that you are I mean because therapy and. And sort of like actually interpersonal dealings with our emotions is not really a big part of our community, because as a community. We've just been talk sort of go on you. What I'm saying. Go to church. Go take a back. Take a nap. Even saying you go on because you it. Hasn't I really for the longest in wasn't very recently felt like it didn't have affected me, you know. I felt like it was just you know part of what it was because I do so many other people who had. Maybe those specific things but other you know it's generational trauma. You know what I'm saying. Generational trauma that goes back and back and back sometime they become your stripes. You know what I'm saying so until very recently when I actually had some financial moments in my life, it gave me a little bit of time to introspective different way I did not that they had an effect on me and just to clarify unclear. My Dad never physically abused me was physically abusive to my mom and so. It was a more of a thing with him, but you know I think that those things had effect on me. You know I felt like..

I to just kind of ask. If can I want to kind of ask how you're doing. And where you're thinking is at the moment in light of the fact that you know we're living through some pretty strange times between grown virus, and then of course, the the aftermath of Mr Floyd's killing I I know that you probably more than most have pondered and ridden Abell. Race and things related to police brutality so I think a lot of people would like to know your general take at the moment. I think it's interesting, are I'm in the process of.

You offline Re Hastings just donated one hundred twenty million dollars to hp us. which is the biggest donation so I mean I think corporations are doing the right thing, but for me it is. You know I think the the notion of having been blessed and lucky enough to be writing about these things and talking about them and to you know to America and not just black America America and doing it in a way that I feel like you know often have been considered white spraining and things like that which I don't I never really felt like it was. It was sort of pulling the curtain back and giving context to. Blacks as well. My community well things that we were filling in talking, put them putting him into words into actions to to gifted actors and doing the same thing with black. Yeah, like it was a big thing, but this moment in particular. The reason that. We decided. We're going to forever and I are going to do a musical on Soda I to to ask you is the public and now we're going to do it as A. Jordan Cooper at Netflix's as a film. The this moment in particular reason, we got into that, too, because you know the. KARMIC irony of the notion that Colin Kaepernick was fired from his job for kneeling for the specific cause of police brutality, not racially quality, not equal pay. Not You know this that at least probably was you know basically off from his job and that now we have. A young man losing his life. You know in a tragic public way and WHO's become a global symbol for this movement because. A police officer brutalized him and smashes like way by kneeling on his neck. They I think that we say coincidence as human beings. We don't know how to explain things we don't explain. Although coincidence has been proven to be mathematically impossible in a this is not, this is not happening by chance. You know these things. It's time I. Think you know it's it's the moment that actually in the most unified culturally moment since the sixties which would not have happened with. We're not possible without white liberals walking alongside black civil rights processors. You know what I'm saying. We came together I. think that now I've seen signs of. and. It's not a wider black thing. But I seemed funny signs even White People White People. You know what I'm saying. We're seeing the KARENS and this and that it's not a black white thing. It really isn't Asada rich poor thing. It's not a left right thing. It's monsters.

Michael Anthony Snowdon. Just fucking brilliant guy. He Co wrote Scary movie in in White sugar some other some of those other things. Whatever the way and show you know and but like brilliant. Brilliant people and you could hear. Now's my first time. You started being like I can hear a Marc Maron Joe. My partner Gras Jonathan. Groff came into your show and John Groff. Yeah he was my partner on Black Ish. He's like I do John. Groff and I started together. Am Boston doing stand up. He was I got him his first writing job. Oh Wow he's a funny motherfucker through he he Like I was hosting short attention span theater on comedy central and he was a comic but like he was moving into writing. But we did open mics together in Boston in fucking eighties. So I've known him a long time and I needed I the they didn't want to hire writer. This dumb little clip show. I didn't I made them pull pulled in John. And that was his first job writing and then he went on to Conan. And and that was history. He's a monster monster monster and the writer. Seriously really you know. He's a jeopardy grand champion. Yes just super funny. You know guide like bits will come out of the even thinking about stuff and he'll just do. I forgot that he was there. So you guys you created that together I created. I created it but How'd you meet him so when I was creating it on the person they brought it on to help me through the pilot was Larry Wilmore? Who was a huge fan of Larry and I cart before the show started or for the show came on because Larry got the nightly show? Whatever and so I knew I was going to need going into a new new before the show even got picked up. They're going to have a show so I knew I was going to need experienced person to do this with and we brought in John. Jonathan Groff was there with me from the beginning and although he didn't create the show with me he has every aspect my partner on that show he He was amazing. You know he for a white guy from New Hampshire a boss ever from to come into a guy who had never run a show before Do something different. Because I show hadn't really quite been done like that before and I was telling my family. And he took let me sort of like really run a show but at the same time told me what I didn't know what the networking editing. Anyone else the you know the ego that would have been. They would've possibly had would not let my voice come out. But he really really really fostered my voice a when he did the same thing with kid who created David Casper decorated happy endings. Him saying he was. You know there's a few Guy Iran underling spills guys who in town. They do something really special. And they know how to come in and work with riders and let their voice come out but at the same time not let the ego get in the way that the show doesn't suffer. He's one of those guys you know. Pay Welford but so wait. So what was the jumped? So when you created blackish what was your what was the inspiration man like you were just. It's time for a black show. I Soda Ton of pilots so nineteen minutes. They had gone to various levels but never went all the way and I was in those pilots. I think I was trying to like. Do the family people wanted to see sometime. I'd write a show in. I turn the characters white saying I do sort of like the you know The MOLUCCAN saw like a black guy. Jewish guy who lived next door. I was trying to like find some hood on. I felt like a really started thinking. The people who I loved the people that I sort of like wanted to emulate the thing that they did time and time again was they told their story and I was like you know I finally was like fuck it. You had so many friends. My wife's doctor. You know I had these kids who you're talking to your kids more than you have knowing that little lose what I'm saying. What are you lose out and I had these kids who were were black kids but didn't look like the black kids that I remember in terms of the things that they wanted the things they did their friends and I started talking to so many of my friends not was their experience whether they were black or white and so that was sort of conceded. The show is that our people our age having kids we were kind of started like being the dinosaurs right and I was trying to like hold on to the blackness of my kids but at the same time I wanted them to sort of have their privileges little white kids and so sort of the conceit of like blackish was about. You know we got when I got a chance to do it. Was Laurence Fishburne is why that show got picked up. I'm saying like he was just a big star to be doing comedy like such a big jump. He's beyond good Anthony Anderson in Tracy Rosser wide stayed on saying because they're all like we all kind of came together. We were in this little silo off pod Will more groff me? The guys just like we did something in. You could Kinda feel. We didn't know if it was going to work in office. You kind of whether it worked or not it was. You felt good about it and you thought it was different in in your mind like sort of like what do you think? How is it part of the evolution of that of a Black Family? Show like what? How was it different in your mind so I think cosby for me was amazing? What I'm saying I think it will it change society? You know it was the first time my white friends wanted the same dad that I wanted to be. My Dad like in it but cosby was very very political in that he made a point. The cosby show. They could have been white Characters until the same basically the same stories right like he did that purposely not about race and and I made a point with blackish that it was absolutely about a black family in like it was about their experiences and also I think that was the evolution and at the same time it was whereas the Qazis never really seemed conscious of their socially social economic status. You know saying that was a multi million dollar brownstone. They were obviously. Don't really well. They never really seem to conscious associated Status we were. That show was very conscious of like they have made it saying they. Have you know there at the end in really in the middle middle class pool in a real big right subsequently it ended up? I think one of the things that kept that show on it kicks it keeps going is for a long time. It was the it was the watch. Group watched the most was the highest her income family pies per income groups of any show on television. Watch that show. I don't know blackish. Okay good I think that it was the the sort of aspirational wish fulfillment part of what? I'm saying. Look people who watched it. There were a lot of advertisers who wanted to come in so expensive stuff. That was a good place them so I think that it got good ratings. Great Ratings in I in the empire came and took all our all African American viewers way opposite uh-huh but You know got got really decent. Raisins still gets these ratings. But it was the I think. The Voice of that show ended up being actually made it special right for sure. And did you find that because I know that you whatever your relationships were your family that you have the that there's a milder version of of you and your father. Oh one hundred percents. That was the love letter to my dad. That was.

They can actually identify why you know what I'm saying And as long as I know because you never really hear no bullshit for me. But how am I pushing My art form forward high evolving as an artist and a store I think those are the things that matter. More than me I like my last album. Dontrelle I'm extremely proud of now. I know that it did not reach. The same level of notoriety is a lot of my other projects. I'm still proud of. It was my tenth project. I'm proud of the artwork on it. I'm proud of the videos. We shed. I'm proud of the song. Selections that made up the complete body of work. I'm not just trying to toss a song idea and hoping that she get successful and have a body of work that no one knows. Here's what I mean. So she told a store and I feel like my feet me in a in a moment in my life but I like you know music. Apm IDEAL FOR REAL. Like my my catalog really. Is You know what I'm saying. I'm stigma now. Can Trap music like and that's really. What pays my bills so I feel like even hear you talk. I told you like our original. You're such a storyteller which music. Maybe that's the thing we idea like you doing something sonically that you have a visual and mind for saying that. There's a picture that there's a movie that there's something like a movement that you're recording that we know. What are the visuals so company Maybe there's something that is I think. One of the greatest storytellers. You know what I'm saying in the game man thank you. I got an idea. I WANNA run by. You know what I'm saying I won't put this on the show like that but this is the idea is called washed and now think the same format kind of like a scripted reality kind of breaking the fourth wall. Some kind of way but it's about it would be a reality show would be about rappers who society would see as washed up to do that forever. Yes no I swear to God literally use that. I WanNa do that show. I've thought about that the notion of like I saw somebody also pleased with this so I saw. Nellie and I'm like now these rich as my brother lives as like at nobody. Agnelli's sewed units. You know what I'm saying to control clap control culture guards. They don't know who he is like what I'm saying like you know the notion of Elis. Fine Elliot's done. What an artist. But the idea of how people see him what people see about I. I'm I'm fascinated by that artists like me. A BIG BOI from outkast It's so many. Got that Nigga. I got the same fleet of calls. I got the same Jiri ally. I got mo houses but you know because you heal this fucking shit on the radio every day. You think you know that she's still. You know degraded shit in the world. But I do know that fame and I think this should be kind of like the undertone of fame. That shit is like a deep sleep especially when you first get you digging saying you come from absolutely net you take a Nikolai me at the trump. And you gotta put me on a worldwide tour platinum all of a sudden. I'm richman away to drink and you could be looking did him. I is an hour. His shoe saying knows air. And that's what we gotta understand. I have to remind myself this shit all the time man it to me going to prison coming back back and forth. That's how I kinda like woke up. Like WHOA WHOA Shit. This is you know it's a real life going on here and I think that you know. Visually depicting and presenting that I think is a is an opportunity that you know. I look forward to taking advantage of go. Yeah all kidding with users doing fucking rhythm and flow that that particular format by wits fucking still. Because it's almost like whatever happened to okay. You know what I'm saying like like I'll google whatever happens. You know I saw trick. Daddy got trouble. He had some and I wasn't whatever happened to trick. That notion of you know and some of the stories are not going to be as as bright as Others. Some stories you know. Take some dark terms right but I do think it's an interesting really really really. I'm into elevator pitches elevator pitch you get somebody in the elevator. You got that much time to sell them. Something like this is an elevator fish. It's such an interesting world. You know what I'm saying that shows and like I'm still rather soups. Really interesting version of this because new remained so relevant culturally. But like you know soup as I'd hit album out saying you know he's He. He hit so hard. He's fine for life. Right. I'm saying and he's ill but the idea of like every story is not like that and hearing snoops journey. And how you sort of you have to be able to reinvent yourself. You know what I'm saying like you have the number one podcast in the world saying in the end it wasn't something I mean. This was like A. Let's see if I can do it. And then all of a sudden you here you know what I'm saying like you know as a producer television as an actor in films and the idea by keeping. Reinvented itself is a really important notion. Think that that show could be really interesting to see like which one of us have gone into real estate which is not going to Amsterdam. Mc Hammer also interesting Interesting story you know. Everybody know about them blowing out of money and you know what I'm saying. And they say that he went broken now but they don't know that he's been investing again Silicon Valley ever since he kind of stepped out of the spotlight and now he has made as much if not more money with his investments.

We were in Sleigh for over four Hundred Years Right. Think rations eleven or twelve years or something like that so we were enslave. Almost thirty thirty eight thirty nine forty forty generations generations. I read some March two to three generations to like things to normalize. But we're used to seeing a black police officer or the we were in a situation for forty generations or thirty five thirty eight generations in notion of us not knowing that we should look a white man in his eye and things like that and all of a sudden. We're put out in Jim Crow which I think is worse than slavery in all of a sudden this over Europe you know atrocity just over and we're back into the same community with the same people who are oppressing us. Our behaviors are rationale Our diets are our health habits. You know our health traits. There's no version of forgetting in America in the world are now we went to a lot. And that's how resilient about people we are. We're still there's this great book post traumatic slave disorder. We're still dealing with you. Know the effects of what slavery is and I think that like you know. There's a big thing in in jewelry. I like jewelry. I grew up feeling like I didn't have shit about shit man. You know what I'm saying that we as you grow you know what I'm saying. Of course we all know the difference in assets and liabilities. We all know wh value appreciation versus depreciation is but there's just something about the gratification of you know nice things that mean or to us than it would to a white man and I think that you sum that up in in in say that is because of slavery it's talking. I feel like you know Chris. Rock say it's spending and we gotta go. We had to put rims on. We're learning. We're we're slowly. Learning less is more as we start to come around as most of us who have any type of real sort of success. I mean in terms of wealth and I wouldn't even call wealth To many wealthy minute wealthy ones and so most of us who have any type of success. This is first generation. Everything we're learning. We're learning on the spot on the job training for us right second to learn. I'm not supposed to rent my car out because the stocks make it right away as well as a drag. Give me a second to learn that but in the second before I learned this times when you can tuck your chain given the need the chain I mean let me let me have my moment m saying and I I'm understand. I'm starting to understand financial literacy as we all are and I'm teaching it to my kids in a way. It wasn't talk to me. But they're still part of the system bigoted. I just want to know what I'm saying. Dominion and beaming and I'M NOT GONNA hide from that I remember looking at and who players rappers and what they had and I'm right when I got a little bit of something. I wanted to be. Like those. That would gut your. I'm not going to run away from that. Because that's what mainstream society says. I should do my and that's another thing that you don't shy away from you. Don't shy away from the criticism of yourself. You know what I'm saying. Will you actually like say? Damn I just Ryan a black wave. Is this. You know I'm just the nigger of the moment. You know what I'm saying Those real candlelight Conversations realizations. You've had which yourself overtime one hundred percent hundred percent like you know the notion of when I see something. That episode was super personal for me because when I see something that I feel like things that I feel like as as artists. This is why I'm sure you know what I'm saying music. What I'm saying just like six. You'll see something because you can really wrap. You know what I'm what would change right now and when you see something and for you it doesn't necessarily resonate is which you remember which you feel like our form is but it's your realty. Yeah it's getting real More than anything else starts feeling like hold on what I'm saying was I part of that was part of that sort of you. Know Wave It makes me question my own. Mount Success small things at the same time. It makes me not want to just accept being part of something. I want this I want to be. I don't WanNa be when I might not be fair but I want the people that I respect in the community that we want them to actually like or dislike about work and be able to critically talk about that but really challenging one another. Yeah I think Speaking of challenging one another one thing you also do taking from your real life. You don't just kind of Present the the positive or the Nice easy parts of Your Life. You also touch on some tough topics of discussion Even from Black Ish Amd BLACK A of separation When you know when a married like separation sometimes is just you know what I'm saying. It's a it's a harsh reality of marriage and you know to pretend that that reality doesn't exist does not help us in the long run as a society so and also dealing with things like you dealt with the black gay of like Having a woman who might have had money before you had money but now that you've become you know a little bit more fluent your woman. Can you know what I'm saying? Had opportunity to not have to work and that causes a certain level of resentment in the household that may may even be unintentional. It's unintentional for you. You Ain't trying to shine on and she's not really trying to. You know what I'm saying. Be Negative towards you. But it's just a unspoken reality that you address all your work What made you be as as confident free with your own real life situations to share with us like this. I like the great comics. The comedians that we really love they draw you in when you tell your own story by Utah Flowers. You draw your audience and because you're not trying to prison of side that's not necessarily real. I can understand you see the chinks armor and they'll expose the audience and exposed more than you're even willing to expose but it's easier to talk about things sort of WanNa have a because I have an opinion. It's easier to have an opinion if I if I let you into having an opinion on my life. I'm going through a divorce. You know who knows what's going to happen with that. But yeah yeah m saying like you know who knows what's going to happen with that but it is part of life. I'm saying I think when I was growing up we didn't have. I never saw cliff and clair argue by so I did you know I believe that you know you. Look at sitcoms and our stories. We're supposed to be okay. I'm saying but the idea of it is fifty. Two percent of marriages don't work The notion of like understanding how to Reich. We didn't know about therapy really are really understand it. You know saying because I wasn't fired growing up we didn't know about really. Have the church really having friends that were other married friends. And we didn't have a lot of things that sort of would have given us the skeleton sort of make a different kind of way so. I feel like talking about showing that you know a generation of people who might be going through on going to make some sort of like. Hey there is other people out there like me. Maybe we can. We can't we just WANNA make sure that I'm trying to be as real with my shit is awesome man. I think he's doing a phenomenal job. and I mean even just in compensation man you just. Kinda just share so much you dig what I'm saying You didn't tell us about you know you go through. You know what I'm saying it is. It is obvious thing especially when you have to do it in front of the world. You know what I'm saying. Well you know what I'm saying like I somehow some fucked up way. It got announced on my birthday that we didn't follow my birthday got announced on my birthday and I didn't know it was. I don't I don't know that my divorces people care about me getting the. I'm not anybody especially at that point. And all of a sudden it's in the papers. I'm getting off a plane coming from Atlanta. Have my wife calling me. I have my daughter. Who's a sophomore at USC? Calling me and leads daughter. Who's a senior in high school colony? Because her friends are talking about it. I you know like I'm just not used to you. Know I I did this. Contract with net flicks. All of a sudden people are talking about money. Got And what's in my pocket and what's this and it's just it's A. It's a different world than I ever expected..

The making of Yanni
"In the nineteen nineties. I wrote an op Ed. For The New York Times where I tried to make sense and make fun of an inexplicable pop phenomenon that was sweeping the planet. Another single name star. Yanni was a huge deal at the time this new age composer and performer doing concerts at the Taj Mahal and the Forbidden City in Beijing. He released his live at the Acropolis album in the spring of Nineteen ninety-four which sold more than four million copies. This baffled me and my times s I propose facetiously that Johnny success must be the product of some powerful global conspiracy because this young Yanni guy and his music were so completely blah. Lots of people agreed. There's one guy the worst guy the music the Yanni man. You know Yanni first of all anyone who looks like a magician and doesn't do magic I don't like oh no. This is yawning. This guy is the biggest pothole I've ever seen in my life. So how did it happen? How did somebody who made? What sounded like high-end Muzak? How at that moment of Nirvana and a tribe called quest? Did he emerged as this superstar? Studio Three Sixty Seven Chong has the answers. The nineteen ninety. Tv special of Yanni's concert at the Acropolis has all the trappings of a musician. Doing a victory lap. After really hitting the big time there was set against the backdrop of the Parthenon backed by no less than the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra Tossing back. His dark flowing locks as tap that his synthesizers while an enormous crowd cheered them on. But if you thought that this was Yanni's ward for being world-famous you'd have it backwards. Yanni wasn't on TV. Because he was a star. He was a star because he was on TV. Yanni was a niche player. He was big in his area. But that's relative George Barris produced and directed the live at the Acropolis special and worked with Yanni for years. He wasn't considered a big player. In the overall music field. Yanni's field was the world of instrumental electronic new age music. He had been releasing albums for a small new age label since the mid eighties and they got respectable sales within that market but the general public dismissed all that stuff as music for hot stone massages or being put on hold. He was being buttonholes. A new age artists and there was no superstar Andrea. If Yanni was well known for anything it was for being the new boyfriend of a celebrity opened. The front door opened the door. I took one look at him. I lost my heart. This entire one thousand. Nine Hundred Oprah episode is actually devoted to dynasty actress. Linda Evans and her meet cute with Yanni. It was as if he was made. Just for my eyes. I mean there's nothing about exposure was nice but Yanni wanted to be more than talk show fodder the frustration was. He was hitting like a glass ceiling. But we believe in the music we saw there could be used in a lot of other areas than just in elevators and that was the challenge we had to get it out there and let the public decide the what options beyond he have. His music wasn't really radio. Friendly an MTV wasn't exactly making a lot of room for instrumental new age composers. And then.

CBS censors itself
"I'm Kim masters, and this is the Hollywood breakdown joining me as Matt Bellamy of the Hollywood reporter. So Matt not that many people probably have CBS all access, but I would think that the majority of those who do are many many of those who do want to watch the good fight, which is the spin off from the CBS series. The good wife these guys Michelle and Robert king who are the creators of both the good wife and the good fight have been in the news lately because it came out that CBS censored an episode of the good fight. And the reason for that was because they were worried about how China would react. Now, they do on this show. These little interstitial animations as they relate to the plot of the show. So they have a plot going on about China one of episode. I should mention of the good wife was actually censored in China. So maybe that's a callback to that. We're going to play just a little bit of the music from one of these little animation. So listeners can get a feel for it. This is about Russian. Troll farms, which is another subject at the show, which often deals with political stuff addressed. With the matter fake Facebook and Twitter accounts in a win through by the goal of screen. There's nasty permission garbage. So that is about play said Russian troll farms. There's one about China. It was censored by CBS ostensibly because they were worried about their executives who are in China, the Chinese government can sometimes get retaliatory that's a serious concern. But the kings. I suspect that the reason this wasn't played was because of the business that is at stake in China. Of course, I mean, this is the new frontier for every entertainment company. There is a gigantic market in China. And you're seeing one after another these examples of how content is changed or certain subjects are avoided to avoid angering the Chinese government. I mean, look at what happened with bohemian rhapsody. Every instance of pseudo gay innuendo. Was scrubbed from that movie. So it could get a China release. And you're seeing this over and over with different companies, they're terrified of offending a regime that can take action against content companies for fending them. Yeah. There's been examples, for example, not in China. You know, Netflix censored Hassan Menasheh Patriot Act when he addressed Saudi Arabia issues of the Saudi Arabia's conduct suspect to the murder of Jamal kashogi. So it's not just China, but China is this huge huge market. So it's it's something where you see film studios. Sometimes looking at scripts with an eye to might this offend the Chinese, and it's been unpredictable. It's hard to know what offends the Chinese. So that makes it that much. More difficult will end CBS all access is a US based streamer just CBS content goes all over and they have many business dealings as does Viacom it sister company. But this is. An interesting one because it's it's something on a show. You know, there's so much content out there on various CBS platforms. The fact that they are hypersensitive about a thirty second interstitial on a streaming only show is pretty interesting, and there is other stuff about China in the action of the show that could equally offend the Chinese which, but I as Emily Nussbaum points out in this really great story in the New Yorker that she wrote about this animated interstitial are go viral more easily than other things and are harder for algorithms to detect. So you can see why the idea that this is an animated interstitial might have made a set off alarm within CBS. I think it's extraordinarily that the kings went public about this. I mean, they have their deal at CBS. They have shows it CBS and showtimes show. That's that's in contention to be picked up a pilot right now as the networks move towards the up fronts in may. So it's extrordinary. And and I mean that shows the power of show runners these days you saw. What the blackish creator? Can you barris did last year when ABC's censored a racially charged episode of that show? So I think in this environment the networks have to be very sensitive to the show runners and their concerns. Yeah. Who knows maybe they wanna go somewhere else? Thank you, Matt. Thank you. That's Matt felony editorial director of the Hollywood reporter. He joins me this Monday at one thirty on the business. I'm Kim masters, and this is the Hollywood breakdown.
People in their 20s are injecting face fillers to look like their selfie filters
"This. Marketplace podcast is brought to you by the university of Florida Warrington college of business transform your future with an MBA from one of America's top ten universities. Learn more at Warrington dot ufl dot EDU slash MBA. People in their twenties and thirties are getting injections to look more like their selfie filters from American public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm Ali would. Selby's are an art form on social media. But some young people aren't happy with just a Snapchat or Instagram filter. They want the lip cheek and forehead injections. So that their real life faces match the doctor itself fees. The American Academy of facial plastic and reconstructive surgery says there's been a twenty percent increase in botox injections among eighteen to thirty seven year olds in the last five years. Marketplace reporter, Eric embarrassed, it's reporting on this recently. And she told me that the makers of injectable fillers which smooth out the lines on your face like a photo filter. Does are starting to spend a lot more money on social media marketing, our Gan, which is the company that makes boat talks makes Juve Dharam does cool sculpting. That's where they're paying influencers to do a lot of the work. So people are on Instagram anyway, looking at other people's faces all the time. And then they're seeing people that they might follow women that they might look up to. And they're seeing that they also were are actually, you know, talking. About these things, you know, they're like hash tagging Sunday afternoon. Hashtag tocks hashtag filter. Hashtag fillers. You know, the whole thing. Yeah. Tell me more specifically about what people are getting done like what specific procedures than what are people trying to look like. So the most basic thing that most people are getting done is just getting, you know, likable talks injection that kind of freezes your face and kind of makes you look relaxed. But then after that there's a lot of small spas that have opened up that are offering things like institute, which is some stuff that you can get put in your cheeks that give you like sort of a higher cheekbone. You can get your lips done and make them a little bit plumper a lot plumper. There's all kinds of stuff that you can get done. I understand that one woman told you she really has heard of people asking to look more like the filters that they have seen on social media. Right. Yeah. So one woman I spoke with who's Twenty-seven-year-old in Rhode Island. And she says she just gets her lips done. She gets imbo both talks. But it's pretty like normalized amongst her group of friends, and she has a couple. They get a little shot of Duve Derm in the tip of their nose. It makes them look a little bit like that Snapchat filter, and I just thought that was kind of fascinating like the idea that you wanna look like what your online reflection looks like do you have a sense of whether any of the doctors are ethically conflicted about this. Do they resist it at all? Yeah. So I did talk to one doctor who actually is the head of one of the plastic surgery. National plastic surgery associations in Memphis, and he refuses to give anyone any kind of injectable or bow talks unless they medically need it or if they're under a certain age. So he's adamant lead not doing it. But at the same time, he knows that there's like clinics just right up the street that you can just walk into. I think the big part of it is is that because you know, it's it's an elective procedure. It's a lot of money. And so you're budgeting thousand or two thousand a year, you know, it can be hard to say no to that. Erica barris is a reporter with marketplace. Last year. Researchers at the Boston University school of medicine Warren. About what they called Snapchat, Dismore FIA and said, it could lead to body Dismore fic- disorder, a mental illness that causes people to obsess about their imagined defects. And now for some related links head over to our website. Marketplace tech dot org for a link to a longer story that Erica did about this four marketplace and more stories about Snapchat, Dismore, Fiat, and how it has plastic surgeons worry earlier this year doctors at Massachusetts General Hospital published a guide for cosmetic practitioners to help them figure out when they're dealing with someone who is beyond normal discontent with their appearance and onto the obsessive compulsive spectrum that is body this Morphing disorder their research that as many as thirteen percent of people seeking cosmetic surgery have the disorder and in a fun. Fact, I learned that dissatisfaction with your appearance is so common in basically, everyone that researchers call it quote normative discontent. There is a hopeful story from Taylor Laurenz over at the Atlantic though from just a couple of weeks ago about how even though those twenty and thirty somethings or getting the nose injections, look more like their filters. The next generation. Of influencers is actually rejecting the carefully edited super stylized aesthetic, and they're going for a quote, Messier and more unfiltered vibe, the story quotes, a fifteen year old influencers who says that avocado toast and posts on the beach are generic and played out and that it's not cool anymore to be manufactured. So maybe the children really are our future. Unless allergen comes calling with the big check. I'm Ali would. And that's marketplace tech. This is a PM.
Anderson named St. John's head coach
"Then you finally got an answer to the next Saint John's head coach was going to be because we all agree this ten day. Search has been an out in barris meant I no problem with Saint John's moving on from Chris Mullin, but the plan in place after the fact, let's say left a lot to be desired the failed. Chase of Bobby Hurley what went on with him cruise hearing about porter Moser. I mean, it was just a different story every day. You didn't know who is running. The search was that the new AFL director, Mike Craig was deported. Trustees and the president involved portal nightmare. And I have to be honest when I found out Thursday morning that Kim Koo said withdrawn his name from the search fearing the worst. I was taking a Twitter destroying the program. Rightfully sell for the way, these last ten days have chicken out little did. I know that Saint John's we're actually end up with a head coach and candidate that has a pretty impressive resume is you found out Thursday night that Mike Anderson full head coach at UAB, the former head coach, Missouri. And the former head coach at Arkansas. Is the next head coach of the Saint John's Redstone. His what you like about, Mike Anderson. Everywhere. He has gone. He's one. When's the last time Saint John's can give you coach with that a resume from that amount of stops along the way. It's been quite some time. Mike Anderson is one. Took Arkansas NCW tournament through the last five years. Saint John's can't tell you the last time they've done that going back to the late nineteen ninety s David won a tournament game in nineteen years. You're getting a head coach who's gonna bring a style of play that I think is going to be appealing to lot guys that thinking about one sT shots. Forty minutes of hell, obviously, his proteges men was no Richardson at Arkansas style, they played winning national championship. They're gonna get up and down to four. They're going to defend they're going to be fun team to watch. If you bring in right players. Now the knock on this. Anderson higher is going to be not only the manner in which it was conducted. But the fact that he doesn't have New York ties. I don't think that's in the world. I really don't. And here's why you're going to bring an assistant coach is most likely who do have those New York dies. And if you know anything about college basketball, these days recruiting now is nationwide. You're not just going to focus on a niche area. You'll go coast to coast players Steve alive and tried to do it. Chris Mullin shot to do it coaches over the country. Yeah, you're going to recruit the area in which coaching. But you looking to get players that are going to fit your style players that are gonna stick around players that are going to be eligible now my stick and do that. I think it sell it higher, especially considering the set of circumstances. The embarrassment at reportedly interview with francesa couple days ago. The dirty laundry being aired every which way Saint John's they got themselves proven cut. They got themselves the head coach who's what bendy NCW tournament. Nine times seventeen years. Who is basically twenty five hundred it's an impressive resume. Now, we'll see if that resume can continue to be successful in a program that yeah hasn't had much success over the last eighteen nineteen years. So Mike Anderson, formerly of Arkansas, the new head coach Saint John's, then you had the keys on Thursday night so much for the Yankees taking the good feel of the Boston series and carrying it over into Thursday's game because the basically sleepwalking through nine innings against the Kansas City Royals. They're facing a mediocre pitcher coming off multiple surgeries. And Homer Bailey won't pitch came out of the Mingo her mom who gives him six innings through on baseball. We gave up a couple of gopher balls. You'll gonna take that anytime a on amount. Six Durham baseball Yankee, bats scorn run in the first inning. Did absolutely nothing in this game. And look the acheived one through six in his lineup. Still in my estimation have enough to give you far better efforts than what you saw against the royals, but you have to knowledge the fact that the Yankees seven eight nine Mike Ford. Austin role mind pile await Yankee like so one story short the keys trying to tread water. Eight ten on a year to get cavalry back soon as possible. Hoping for more. Good news. I'm Gail and do hor we'll see what his role is going to be came comeback. Maybe just be at the H that talking about maybe the idea of impeding up a first baseman for about like that. It's you consider getting Gary Sanchez back on Sunday. We'll be cipher so rise 'cause I'm sick and tired of watching Austin role mind who is not a starting catcher in the big leagues. You want? Good news on Hicks. You canoes on Stanton. But if there is a silver lining to all these Yankee injuries man could Frazier's taking his opportunity. He's run with it. He had another multi hit night on Thursday, and he's gonna make life very difficult. Aaron Boone wants the keys have some healthy players back in a lot. But in the meantime, the Handke's gotta find a way even with the injuries to beat up on somebody's bad teams losing series at home to the Orioles. The tigers. And the White Sox is unacceptable. You'd better hoping putting the canned City Royals on that list. Five fifteen here on this Friday morning stage. A after die chance give it to you right here on the fan. Eight seven seven three three seven sixty six sixty six thoughts on Saint John's in their higher the Yankees continuing to struggle with bad teams and Brooklyn now down to one in this series, a punchers chance of their I say extending to sixty seven games don't count on it. Now with the lead is CBS sports minute is Bill rider. CBS sports minute. Not take anything away from the Houston. Rockets. What has
