Nell Scovell: 'Ten Years Ago, I Called Out David Letterman. This Month, We Sat Down to Talk'
"Welcome to the frame John Horn ten years ago. TV writer Nelson Avella took a pretty big risk. She published an article calling out her former boss. Late night King David Letterman for running writer's room and a show that favored men scovill has since co authored. Sheryl Sandberg's two thousand thirteen book. Lean in and last year she published a memoir. You're just the funny parts and a few hard truths about sneaking into Hollywood boys club for her latest piece. In Vanity Fair Scoville met with Letterman to finally talk about gender discrimination at late night. Scoville join me in studio and described what it was like to write for Letterman in one thousand nine hundred ninety. Yeah so this was a dream. I'm job for me I had already worked in Los Angeles. I actually worked on the last season of newhart. And I'd written a Simpson's episode road and I finally. After years of sending material to the Letterman people got a call asking me to come in and meet with Dave and like a lot of late night shows not a lot of women in the writer's room. Now there's only been one before I got hired it was Merrill Marco who was a genius and the first head writer on that show and also Dave's girlfriend at the time so I guess I was the first female hired who was in a relationship with Dave so many years after you leave the show in two thousand and nine something compels you to write about your experiences sir. Right Dave was the victim of a blackmail attempt. He was having an affair with one of his assistants Whose boyfriend found her diary and the scheme was that he threatened to write a screenplay about the affair? If Dave didn't give him two million dollars at the same time Nancy Franklin writes a piece in the New Yorker that points out that there were zero female writers on Letterman Leno and Conan. And I have to say Dave's announcement was not surprise. Is anyone who worked on the show knew about his extracurricular activities. But the fact that I'd been gone for twenty years and they'd move backwards awkward as far as gender in the writer's room that was stunning to me and I literally lost sleep so on a fast forward word to a decision you make and certainly there's another party to this conversation which is going back today. Insane I want to have a conversation about about the fact that you didn't respond to what I wrote. And how did that come about because there seems to be an important condition and that is that it's on the record as we approached October twenty nineteen. I knew it was the ten year anniversary of this article I had written for Vanity Fair and then I just got this crazy idea which is With Dave sit down and talk to me and I knew he hadn't read the article because in this weird coincidence he and I ended up working together in twenty fourteen on the Kennedy Center Honors and I actually had a chance to ask him. Did you ever read that article. And he said to my face no. I don't worry about that stuff. Don't worry about that stuff it meaning inning. He didn't wear. He doesn't worry about what people write about him. Is that what it means. Already doesn't worry about how he behaved and how he treats women he claims it is the former when you sat down with David. I'm curious what was the most striking thing that he had to say. Well first of all it was pretty extraordinary that he agreed to sit down with me. If you do any reading about apologies and someone wronged you find out that as the person who has been wronged you lose status status and so the second Dave agreed will sit at a table and talk. He really did offer me the status right. We were equals at that table and I would love to see more powerful white men doing that sort of thing which is being open to that discussion so the point was not just for me to get what turned out to be an apology from Dave but also to you try to model behavior that I would like to see more. We're talking with TV writer and author Nelson cavill you mentioned in your Vanity Fair Peas. How male all writers rooms have been for people like Jay Leno and he has no regret and no apology? No it's all about the material. Just if you give me material than I will hire you. Just come up to me in a comedy club. He says you know Jay Leno went off. The air was zero female writers and that's he should be ashamed that for the rest of his life. What would you say are the things that make you optimistic about how conversations are changing not just in and around this issue but in the workplace about a show runners interest in hiring a room that looks like the country not like the country club? I do think we've made some improvement and I think it certainly helps to have people like Kenya barriers and Shonda rhimes who have been so successful and even giverny They're all doing amazing work. And I think it's Shonda who made an amazing observation. which is if you walk outside? You see people of all colors. There's US see people from all walks of life that's normalcy so we actually shouldn't call it. Diversity what we want is normalcy. You know in Nineteen nineteen ninety. I went to the EMMYS for the first time Letterman had been nominated and I was in the audience when they announced the nominees for the five best comedies comedies and it was Murphy Brown Golden Girls Designing women wonder years and cheers three and a half of those shows were created by women. Diane English one for Murphy Brown and I sat there in nineteen ninety and thought we we solve this. We proved it. You're if such a dreamer now I just want to get back to where we were in. Nineteen Ninety nells. cavill is a TV writer. She's the author of the memoir. Just the funny parts in a few hard truths about sneaking into the Hollywood boys club. Now thanks much for coming in. Thank

"He was ventriloquist for radio, exactly. Did you really in the in your early years thinking that you were Charlie McCarthy sister? Oh, yes. I was always called trolley McCarthy sister. And but but he was far more than a brother. He was he was like head of state at our house, and he had a room next to mine and every now, and then my father would bring him out, and we would just kind of sit. And once I mean, I remember once we would have been the breakfast room. He would put Charlie on one knee and the on the other. And he when he would squeeze my neck, it meant that. I should move my mouth. Kiewit? He would put you on the knee and treat you as if you were another ventriloquist's dummy. That's correct. Okay. Charlie gum. Gelling. Skipping ahead of bit. Yeah. In the nineties, you start in Murphy Brown, which I as much as any other sort of sitcom or TV show exemplified the nineties it was like the dominant show. And of course, it became quite political. When Dan Quayle famously went after not you but your character. Did he know that it was a fictional character? I don't think Dan Quayle that ever seen the show. Well, really, but he was savvy. They his handlers had taken the line about Murphy out of his speech, and he reinserted into the speech, and that's all anybody talked about. I remember the entire six months of the campaign. It was on. I was on the front page of every paper. It was in. Every political cartoon every aditorial. It just didn't let those seem like beautiful simpler time.

"Will and grace Roseanne Murphy Brown. Yes. We seem to be flourishing twenty-first-century television sucks up to any audience possible could sex in the city beat we beat that is rebooted done over today. If so what would have to change and most importantly, could they find a part for flow, the indomitable insurance lady do think that it is a show of its time. It's a relic. You know, it's a period piece. The reason the show can be watched today, and is with such enthusiasm and more and more audiences watch it, I think it's not because of the socio economic and political stuff, it's the friendship and the search for love like where is home. What is love like how do I find it? What is contentment what satisfaction? How do I answer those questions for myself who Emily in the world as a woman, I think all the stuff with big and money, the lack of diversity the lack of women of color on the show division of New York as this aspirational? That is far more for those with money. Like, that's our time. You couldn't do that. Today. You phones internet the way we communicated men and women how they addressed one another. What was appropriate? What wasn't appropriate like those rules. Those don't even exist. It would just have to be a different story now. But it was completely a story of it's very specific time and place. It's politics this city money in the city. You know, this is before September eleventh like everything was different. Let me see. I mean, I think you could do a show like this. Now, I just think it would be very different show. It would have to be more diverse in not just racially diverse. I think it would it couldn't be this rump of the super wealthy. Right. Right. The disparity of wealth. Right. The bubble that show exists in. I think would be really hard to do now. And I think one of the great thing was how much female empowerment is showed. And then the flip side to. I mean, I think that's one thing that girls went even farther with is showed that actually sometimes women characters that we love and admire are having sex. That's really horrible and that they don't even want to be having. But somehow, they find themselves doing it, you know. And I think that the female empowerment is really real. But I think there would probably be a lot more examination of ways in which women find themselves in situations that they don't want to be in. I mean, there were many elements that sex city brought into our culture that disturb me. But that's one of materialism, how it defined New York City and New York City became definition. It's a pretty tough show to do if you were to do it today because not just a lack of diversity. They're in place for you. It's all gilded in gold now, so been Trump assize, it's all fashioned everywhere. Instead of in one part, there's no neighborhood left. It's you know, the meatpacking district is all the SoHo house and all that. And all of that was the kind of places these people went the show. So actually, I think what would be hard to do would be to do the original laude order in Manhattan. There's nothing left of that New York really been complaining about this aspect of New York fraud and almost eighteen years. And a lot of people have said me. Yeah. Well, it was your show that changed the city has like, yeah, you're probably right. I think a lot of people say that I was talking with Patricia revealed yesterday, and she said she stopped counting. How many people a day say they moved to New York because of sex in the city for all the wrong reasons..
White House, Donald Trump And Jim Acosta discussed on Monocle 24: Midori House
"Has been much to enjoy in Trump's reaction to defeat on Tuesday, at least in the house of representatives. Not the least of which has been the whole online will going all zapruder film on the footage of CNN's. Jim Acosta having a microphone taken off him is the row over this is this actually significant or is this just the media disappearing into a vortex of self regard. Again, I would actually argue this is probably one of the most significant esscalation that we've yet seen from this White House. I think you. If you can't overlook the the optics of what this video represents. Now, the the actual incident if you if you look at how it took place in the news in the actual news. It was a very small moment. And yet the video that was circulated by the White House by Sarah, Huckabee Sanders. The actual White House is an edited video that was taken from a contributor to the conspiracy website info woes the video depict something that did not happen. This is the White House sick leading something that did not happen. Now, I cannot look at that. And think this is not probably the most significant escalation of of war against facts against journalism. This is the president telling us to either disregard our own is all literally get out and don't come back. I mean, I I don't know how you can look at that. And think oh dome. Ari? It's trumping Trump. No, it's not this is him. This is him raising the stakes even further and telling journalists that if didn't play my game they will be not game just to follow that up. And how do you think the rest of the White House press cool should react to that moment to this? I mean, do we reach a point at which they just make a point of stop bothering to show up for things because there's the the counter to that is though these. It is our guest to a large extent a total waste of everybody's time. Asking this administration any questions and expecting a reasonable answer. But via the administration they do need to be questioned. Yeah. Funnily enough, I've made the argument before on monocle twenty four that the the world of sitcoms tend to be a little bit more skilled at getting to the heart of announcement than the news media quite often. And Murphy Brown had a prophetic episode fairly recently where the character of Murphy Brown was actually Bod from the White House had have press poss- cancelled just as Jim Acosta from CNN did full being a little bit too. Harsh on the president the president in that show being Donald Trump. Of course, it setting set in reality, and the moral of the story in the end was that well, we still to some degree half to play the game to some extent. Because eve when they're asking the tough questions, a we'll get up and leave because we're principled, and we believe in freedom of the press and facts and truth. And if you give that to us than. We went be here. Who's going to be left? Sean hannity. I mean that doesn't sound like a good functioning democracy to

"All of this. He's supposed to lead to what well to confrontations with a story telling truth to power and thank goodness. Murphy Brown is back in the job. I actually watched this mercy Brown episode or most of it. I couldn't watch the whole thing. It was to this is the original Murphy Brown show, wasn't that great. But the reboot on CBS is so embarrassing the segment. That gets a lot of attention. I want to play it for you. So you get a a sense of it. It's Candice Bergen back as Murphy Brown and her son Avery. Young reporter has gotten a press pass to go into the White House press room for press briefing with Sarah Silverman. And they do this by using real footage of Sarah Silverman, answering other people, and then they have a body double that they look over her shoulder and so- Murphy Brown, then sneaks onto the White House because a guard is out to lunch and see sneaks on she'd actually gets shot and probably be dead. If anyone actually did this, but it's a TV show. So she sneaks into the White House press room. And it sounds like this next question. See we have some new faces here today Avery. I look forward to taking your question. But I think I'll save for last. Welcome. And then Murphy Brown is coming in. Around grabs question. Actually, I've said Fred. That's so weird. I don't know how you got in here. But it's inappropriate. Excuse me. If you really want to talk about what's inappropriate how about the way you do your job. Came on the role of the White House press secretary is to create transparency in the government and tell the American people the truth, but that's not what happens in this room. Whether it's about a meeting with Russians and Trump Tower or a made a mandate that requires separation between parents and their children at the border. It all comes down to the same thing. So here's my question. Why do you lie? Oh. I think that's absolutely ridiculous. She used and how. Demoralizing is it for us to be called the enemy of the people. I mean, how do we go back to our newspapers and our magazines in our networks knowing that the most basic principle of journalistic integrity to report the facts is totally out of reach. If we can't get to the truth. Why are we even here? I say we get up and walk out right now. Let's show this administration. We're not gonna take it anymore. Come on. Let's go. And nobody follows her. That's the left. And then she says this look, I know a lot of what I said here has to resonate with. You know, a lot of you. Personally. Some better than others. That's her son. She's talking about. Maybe I don't know you as well as I thought I did. Ah? Okay. This is so pathetic. I mean, even by the standards of a failed sitcom, and by the way, Murphy Brown. Invisible ratings. It got one third of the ratings of NBC's rebooted will and grace it got less than one fifth of the rebooted Roseanne radio less than one fifth as as a share of the audience, but can you listen to those line readings? It's like she doesn't even understand what she's reciting here, which I she may be reading from a teleprompter. I don't know. It's it's pathetic. And it makes me nostalgic. My brother, Harry, and I wrote a book a long time ago way back in nineteen eighty. And my brother, and I had a book called the golden Turkey awards, and we gave out a life achievement award for the worst. Actress of all time Candice Bergen was a nominee. She was she didn't win. She didn't win, but she was nominated for goodness sake. This is supposed to be funny. What I don't understand is people are saying and actually Megan McCain was back on the view today, and she was actually moving she had taken six weeks off because of her father's death and funeral and in mourning and she talked about the country coming together, and at least being able to talk to each other. Couldn't Hollywood help with this process. Well, yes, but not if you're going to respond to people like Senator Collins with basically, the F you not if you're going to go after a former astronaut because he dares to quote Churchill because Churchill is now unacceptable. This entire thing. The the insanity about a civil war. What does that civil war about? If you're on the left, and you think you need to keep protesting, and you need to challenge the service of judge cavenaugh. Tell me how you're going to do that one.
"murphy brown" Discussed on WGN Radio
"Tv you can follow him on Facebook and Twitter at the fine print, and let's welcome Dan back, Dan. Welcome back. Thank you. All right now. I was never a Murphy Brown watcher. And I know that like the reboots are the thing now. And so have you watched have you watched Murphy Brown? I have watched three episodes of burpee Brown which. Couple of weeks go to middling numbers. But then at least those numbers the following week. So CBS probably went from somewhat disappointed to kind of resigned truck by the following week. And I would say that if you would never a murky ground in the first place, you definitely don't want to or need to check yet. I did. Remember how excited my parents were movie Brown? And I was ten or eleven or something. And I remember loving the show watching the show with them and really enjoying the show for about five or six years. And then it kept going through a while. And when I watched the episode it turned out, I did have some list algebra for these characters for their voices for for the kind of anger. They have about the world of how it translates very well from the characters they were thirty years ago to the current Trump world at the show has become a little mono maniacal. You know, it's basically all Trump all the time at this point, you know, for people, that's what life is. And so. No. Back in the day. Like Murphy Brown had a little bit more on its slash her. By the biggest change in the show is that Sunday evening who was. When last seen played by a young Haley, Joel asthma on the at the original show is now played by much more steadily take McDormand from limitless. Which is to not. Because here we Joel Osman's been popping up in a lot of stuff lately. And. Really funny likeable character actor at this point, you know, didn't become a leading man. Oh, well, how many of us really do you know when he pops up and things though, I go. Oh, wait till Osman funny. It's good. But they decided they did not want to go with that they decided to go with a hunk spine. And actually, I think that the relationship with Murphy Anderson on the show each one of the better things about the the new version it, you know, it's it's not remarkable. And I think that in a year in which there were five or six really good sitcoms out there that I could say okay here are five or six Jeter sitcoms in this. I would not necessarily have all that much positive to say about Murphy Brown. But I think at this particular year seeing a show that premiers. The characters have their voices the actors know their characters and play them in consistent ways. There's a there's a big plus to that. And I and it kind of makes me understand the reboot culture in a different way. Which is the networks are to Lazier creatively. Bankrupt to come up with anything new. But it isn't just that there's comfort in the reboot. It's did it saves a lot of time because they don't need to find a way to write new characters. They can just fight to the characters. You know? That's it's not a it's not a. Creative in current creatively. Encouraging way to look at this. But looking at all the other news sitcoms, and how disappointing so many of the March. I can appreciate some of the comfort and what Trump's doing. Okay. All right. So there's Murphy Brown which started out. I watched two sitcoms that I wanted to mention because they were so awful. So the first one is is the, and I I you know, what I forgot the name of it. But it's the it's the one that takes place at the at the old folks home with Martin mall and Vicki Lawrence that is the cool kids David Alan Grier. And I watched the first episode of that it was unspeakable. Charlie Charlie day is one of the creators on the show and its cast. I mean, you can't argue with that cast at all those people love all of those people. But my God was that terrible. Did you have you seen it? It is a colossal waste. There. There's yeah, it is. It is a colossal waste of talent. I do think I chuckled a couple times because let's see Jordan cable to make him spongy, David. Alan Grier is able to make tinge funny. Vicki Lawrence is able to make things funny, but they shouldn't have to work as hard. Wouldn't give them things that are actually of their caliber. And no, it's not that. If someone had not told you the Charlie day created the show and asked you to guess based on that pilot show would never in. New Year's to Charlie day as a possible creator. Absurdly knock. Yeah. No. It was it was an EMMY net was just thirty minutes that I'm never going to get back. I mean, I was I I was astonished at how bad it was. And then not as bad, but also not good. Was the neighborhood? And and again, you know, lots of people in that show that I really really really like and. Wow. And I know that you review that in tandem with happy together. Yes. And having only seen at that point one episode of each and there in and hour block on Monday night. Right. Yeah. So it's pretty easy. And basically the review for both of them was the same as these are really really talented people who deserve much better than this material that they're given. And then I did watch the second episode of votes this week, and I feel just the neighborhood might have gotten a here better. And I might be inclined to give it another episode or two I think I'm done with happy together, a happy together has this really broad that relates to the fact that one of the show's producers who's also producer on your favorite late night show with James corden. Oh boy. But he had he had an experience where one direction star hearing installed dipped with him and his wife for eighteen months and Hilarion sued. So the premise is that this couple has a rockstar moved into with them. The second episode. The it didn't even know why that premise was funny anymore. Like, they had it was like they were. They were desperate to run away from it. So I think I'm done with happy together the neighborhood Casta, so good. Yeah. That's the thing. I've watched the first episode of neighborhood to I didn't like either of them. But I watched them both, and I will probably continue to watch a little bit. Because you know, there are there are there moments in the in the show that you know, like, you were saying about the cool kids that you know, you can't help. But laugh because these people are so talented, but man, the writing is not strong at all on that show. So it's it's really not. And and yeah, I think it was something that Cedric the entertainer did in this past episode that made me laugh and Tishina Arnold is always good. I don't think they have a clue yet. How to write for max greenfield. And that worries me because he is funny. And I don't think you'd know it from this Beth beers. I think it's something funny in this episode. I don't remember anymore. What it was? So it must been really memorable on. Honestly, the part of the show that I'm liking best. But the two people. Who aren't the big name stars the the two actors playing seconds, the entertainer sons Marcel spears, and Sean McKinney there people in the show, and they're the actors who I've seen them and things before Marcel spears was in was in the mayor last year. And so I've seen Trump at several things. But they're obviously not the big ticket actors who just seem like they're kind of playing original characters and being sunny, and I yeah. It's it's. It's just a writing problem minutes writing for all the shows that we've talked about in this thing. These are all great actors authors who have technical used to show that they can they can certainly be TV shows. They can be breakout. Tv stars. They can be hilarious. Always then they just need a little help. And they're not getting they're not. All right. Well, let's move onto something that I think do you think is better in and that would be the debut of the w's new show all American tell us about this one. Bye bye review. I did. I did all American the best new broadcast or I'm a pilot of the the fall because I don't know what the alternative is. This. This is the one that I would give a does she plus minus two so. It is based on the true story of tensor Spencer casing who played. Ultimately, the NFL briefly for the giants and several other teams. And it's the story of a young football player for Crenshaw high who gets recruited to come play for a coach on the verge of losing his job played by t digs at Beverly Hills high. And wouldn't you know, it it turns out that Beverly Hills is different from Crenshaw, and then he doesn't instantly fit in his new neighborhood in the show is is so much trying to blend the DNA up Friday night lights in the OC. And you know, if you're gonna blend the DNA of two shows, those are two shows that I loved and they're also somewhat. Unfortunately, two shows that really have two of the best pilots. You really ever? I mean the Friday night lights pilot. I'll probably watch the twenty times masterpiece makes me cry every single time and the pilot for for the OC. Josh Schwartz edge. Doug Lyman directed. It. It's hilarious at times. It it sets up the entire show. It's such a good pilot. And this is not that good. It has it has a good and interesting fish out of water premise, it does some interesting things with with shooting in Los Angeles. It does some good stuff in in south central tries to get away from a few stereotypes the main character has a has a friend from his neighborhood play by breezy who was on empire. And and she's a high school character who is dealing with coming out of the closet, slowly or not really coming out of the closet says the way she puts it is anyone who looks at her new that she was a lesbian already, but she hasn't told their parents and being picked on and she's always had this friend of hers to support her. Now, he's gone off to every hills. And there's some fresh stuff there. There. Also, weird dramatic contrivances. They don't do all that. Well with the football accuracy. And I've seen three episodes now, and it doesn't really feel yet to me like settling into its own voice. It still feels like it's being other shows. But. Genre. That you know. I'm a sucker for and I'm a sucker for underdog. Sports stories. You know, a good high school show. That's the kind of thing that I will always happily watch. And so far, this is okay. And in a fall of awful stuff. Okay. Starts to look a lot better. I guess that's just depressing. No. Honestly, all American it's fine. And the fact that I'm having to elevate fine to a position of of high acclaim is something else, but it's got potential this. This could be a decent show. And he w has a handful of good shows that aren't at superhero shows and given time I think this is a show that that could become something really solid. And so I hope I hope it does because it does have potential in a lot of this falls stuff has no potential. In terms of numbers for the new fall season. Especially on the broadcast are people watching these shows. Some of the manifest on C is doing fairly. Well, I stopped watching that. After the second up to say. Pilot. The second episode was just on bearable. It was like. I did I did the exact same thing. Dan. I watched the first one didn't like it. What's the second one not going back? And and that's just what I've been out there thought everything, and it seems to be doing okay at I assume that if it doesn't get a little bit better. Eventually the numbers are going to start dropping NBC's happy with it do answered today got picked up for a full season back nine and it's doing solidly. And and I think it's not a horrible show. I and I understand the appeal of that kind of medical procedural, and I I think that when you look at the success or something like doctor on ABC, you see that there's an audience for San NBC recognizes in it. You know, it's a comfortable place for people. And that's fine. What else is doing decently the neighborhood did? Okay. FBI has held its audience fairly well, CBS's FBI. And you know, that's the kind of show where if it can't succeed on CBS, right?.

"And we're live. What this is a lie, Murphy Brown. This show is live for no one listening to it. It's not. Well, it's our fortieth episode. We are live. Oh, this reminds me somebody insulted me on Twitter and said, I was quote, a live action. Gift aren't, oh gifts, live action. I keep thinking about it. So I'm just saying, maybe this is live in some universal. Anyway. Stars born came out, oh, God, I saw the millisecond was available due to homosexuality and it worked for me. It was pretty great. I think everyone should see this book. I gotta tell you, I don't know now purely based off of the reaction if I'm going to see it. Really? Yeah, because what I'm what I think is I think people are. I don't think it could possibly be as good as everyone is saying that it is, and I think everyone was very excited for the film to come out and they're making it sound like the greatest film ever made in everyone's winning authors and things like that. And I just feel like it's the over excitement this early that's gonna make me feel like it's not just don't think it's as good as everyone was saying it is. So I think you, I'm sympathetic to that because the deal is it's a three star movie. It is not okay. And it's it's not. It's not a plus and it. It starts amazing. And then like like all the versions of this movie in the second act. It's like, you know this, this rutty guys, alcoholism just isn't that interesting where we here? Yeah, exactly. We're, we're here. We're here for lady Gaga. I appreciate the excitement, and I'm not. I like lady Gaga, fine. I'm not like a huge lady Gaga fan and I appreciate the excitement. But I feel that I'm like, I'm going to go in and be a little disappointed because everyone's making it sound like it's no best picture. Yeah, that's a disease. Those people are rotting. Yeah, though. I mean, those are the people who always think that a movie that is going to win best pitch, and then they don't see any of the other movies you don't. I mean they're movie for them, so it has to win best picture Mad Max all over again. I'm sick goes people. Yeah. What about boy raised right there? Erasing it shall I. Boy, I sure. Too much boy eraser going on here. I actually think the movie was very fun. I love the soundtrack me ten more than the movie, I think so. And also by the way, Shangila former, keep a guest, Angela sales it and Willem kills up. Yeah, they're great in the opening is like in this drag bar and it's really fun, and that's also feel the only time I really enjoyed Bradley Cooper's directing, right? Because it looked amazing to looked amazing. Oh, man. And then you have Sam, Elliott, maybe two. So their dislike doing this, like growl back and forth, don't spoil it because this movie has been out for a second. I'm sure no one's seen it, but what does what stage Paul Duin up in there is very little, I figured, okay, you know what John legend did in LA La Land. Yeah, even less.

I just want to see what this was a lot of people are texting and social media in us and saying, hey, what were the ratings last night for Murphy Brown, but they were great. Let's see Murphy Brown off to a slow rating start on a tough night for broadcast series. So they got seven point they got a one point one rating one point one. So it's not good. Now, it's it's it's they got seven point five million people to watch Anders. Let me see there's three hundred and twenty five million people entering well. Unless unless the rating system has changed the one point one rating would suggest that of every it every one hundred TV's on right, one is tuned to Murphy Brown. That's right. But that's how I understand it. Right. And those are TV's that are on and people are watching. So it's it's like one point one percent of the TV's that Ron were tuned to Murphy Brown, and it's a low number, and you would think that people would would would get it that you can't half the nation immediately. You gotta try to get everybody. You can I am. And I I don't know why the networks they don't understand that. I guess I don't know. But anyway, so there are three hundred and eighteen million people who live in this country that we're doing something other than. Watching Murphy Brown that is a lot of people. There are seven million people that watch and three hundred eighteen million people that were doing something else. Either. Taking a walk walking the dog watching a movie going to dinner, perhaps they went to a play. Yeah. Come on. Yeah. Because there was a lot of people doing a lot of stuff other than Murph. Watching Murphy Brown. It's a hell of a lot of things to do the other ratings were okay, I guess last night. Right. What was a big bang theory at twelve billion figures final season is that right?

This is him as a little kid. And I take a look at that. Then I think that's about it there. So it is it's tough to four broadcast TV Netflix. They don't have commercials. You can use whatever language you want. And Netflix is paying a lot of money for a lot of people that come over there and bring their series over its net. Flicks.

Article in variety net flicks. Eyeing total of about seven hundred original series this year. Did you watch the original Murphy Brown? I I I don't think I did.

"That were playing on the news after primetime by my favorite example, is in nineteen sixty eight one of the most popular shows on the air was called Gomer Pyle USMC, it took place in the contemporary Marine Corps. It never mentioned that we were in a war. It never mentioned Vietnam. And of course, nineteen sixty eight was the year of the Ted offensive and all kinds of casualties there. So there were a few shows the late sixties the smothers brothers ruining Martin's laugh in but all in the family really did make a shift in the fact that entertainment TV was now going to reflect what was happening on the news after entertainment TV. And now, of course, it's all over the place. And then there is the Roseanne factor where you can get a little trouble with some of what you're doing. Yeah. And I mean, I think the one most people are most looking forward to. And we're getting the most attention for is. Of course, the Murphy Brown reboot because Brown was already a pretty political show. If you recall, she took on Dan Quayle in those famous that famous two part episode that played way back in the day. But Murphy Brown was off the air by nineteen ninety eight which means Fox News and MSNBC had only been on for like three years by the time rookie Brown left. Now, the party of five remake is going to involve deportations and a lot of what's happening that really really splits the country. Do you think that that people will try to boycott it because of that because it'll play sympathetic year? Well, I I mean, obviously, whenever you talk about anything that's got contemporary elements. There are going to be people who embrace it. And they're going to be people who who do the opposite. It's hard to tell yet with party of five. We've got very little details. Except for the fact that it is. Reboot by the same producers. But that is a major change the original party of five lost their parents by car crash. This is parents who have been deported. So I think potentially that could be a really interesting show. And of course, whenever anything is interesting. There are going to be people who are upset about it. Thanks a lot for talking to us.

Some details about it they're planning a metoo episode of course they would of course Part of the quote I just want, to Sam behalf of everybody on. Our show we'd take the. Allegations of, sexual conduct, extremely seriously So seriously that we actually developed an episode. About the me to move it many, months ago Some people have joined in there now keep in mind Les moonves He is the. CEO CBS he someone they got in trouble because he is, being investigated at least in, that sense and. He has he is kind of weird the way they're CBS is. Handling this they're handling it very carefully because they know it's a, serious situation but they're still investigating that sort. Of thing so a television show and they're network looking into something that their CEO is being investigated into Yeah that might be a little awkward She said the title, of the episode is hashtag Murphy too and they didn't want to, spoil too much of the plot said I can, tell you that in the writer's room. We have a great collection of people men and. Women gained straight who developed this episode we came. At it from so many different angles. It's so it's such a complicated issue I don't think there is a woman out there. Who hasn't had some experience of misconduct it's a powerful movement and. We, just wanted to do it Justice Then they said the news now thanks to. Our president is in constant turmoil I. Think will be reassuring to see Murphy sticking up for the press in sticking up to. The president oh no excuse me sticking sticking up to the president I guess that's a. Term but I'm not that excited I'm not gonna watch it unless, there's like even the Roseanne, reboot, when everyone. Said it was hilarious all. This is funny funny and we played some clips on. The show and I thought it was funny I finally ended up watching two of, it and I was like this, isn't this is like okay I guess but, it's not that great I don't know why everyone thought it was so great maybe it was just because. They, like. The idea. Of the Roseanne on the reboot You know there is. Another reboot that's happening that's getting a lot of nerds excited oh so, many nerds Patrick Stewart's going to be returning to the new Star Trek series. So breaking news out of Las Vegas a surprise appearance from Patrick Stewart who. Was in Star Trek the. Next generation these are the. Voyages of the Star Trek enterprise he was the head of the Star, Trek enterprise you'd recognize is very recognizable guy he's a, world international superstar. After he started playing John, Luc Picard and a lot. Of people liked him that was a really good series people will always argue who's the better captain. John Luc Picard or shattner which was the better one of the two, people will go back and forth. No one gives any love to any of the other captains none, of them so he's gonna, come, back he's. Gonna do his thing the. Thing that interested me the most about all of this. And said I spent a lot of time recently watching Star Trek the next generation It became clear to me that. The power and benefit of that show continue to grow convinced to rejoin the trek franchise nearly two decades. After his formerly final appearance in. Two thousand and two Star Trek nemesis Stewart cautioned the audience that John, Luc Picard may not be the same man we knew he may not be. Captain anymore I like it they're gonna find him kind of like the start. Of Apocalypse Now we have. Martin sheen laying on the. Bed looking up at the fan going around is that gonna be Sean, loop card the first thing they're gonna show him laying. On the fan Are playing the helicopters in the back In the in the doors This is the is going to be very serious Star Trek in Isn't there a Star Trek. Series on CBS streaming right now I didn't. Watch any of it I don't. Know anyone that has watched it I don't know anyone talking about. Maybe. I'm just too removed from that world if. Anyone Jeff would no I don't know if Jeff still watch internet Maybe maybe if you're. Listening. Jeff do you watch that new Star Trek I guess they would have to put this on regular? Television they want to stream something like that with Luc Picard would they so he left. The stage following his ten minute appearance in front of a convention crowd he clarified that the series was, just not. Having a town announced. Title is still clearly in, pre pre-production no scripts they're making a story the fact that he hinted he might not. Be, captain anymore, is probably an idea they're throwing around Stewart added that. Now, in particular seems like a good. Time to. Bring back the character well loved people like it'll be fun I it I think. It'll bring people back to Star. Trek that may have stopped watching it I'm not a Star Wars fan I, am so in that used. To watch Star Trek because of my parents they just had it on, we used to watch the next. Generation and then the one after that, which was a Star Trek Voyager and I haven't seen. Anything since Voyager and I still haven't seen, all the ones from there my wife doesn't seem that interesting. Catching up there's a million of, those episodes you want to talk about Binge-watching it would take you. But the rest of the year if you could watch one episode? Of day it'd take you till two thousand twenty basically right up until the presidential election. So maybe that would be a good idea hibernate watch Star Trek until the election time you know there, was one. Other show I'll bring. Us up after the break, but one other show that kind of surprised me a show that I absolutely loved grownup. Say, by the, belts it's hard to find news on saved by the. Bell, but I do have some news. In are. You a space person hey forget about Star Trek fictional what about actual space person. You know we have a local. Astronaut that's pretty awesome but there are plans to tear for Mars what does, that mean explain that to. Coming up an overnight America came wax.
‘Frasier’ Reboot Being Explored By Kelsey Grammer & CBS TV Studios
"And friends of those were believed to be, at risk of an overdose should carry it David. What a great thing that is that. It's available over the counter I you know there, should be more responsible medications available over the counter like that we sometimes we. Put medications, behind a pharmacist lock and key that don't deserve to be there and sometimes we don't put medications behind I've pharmacist, lockin that do deserve to be there but, Narcan available over the counter is a great thing for just this reason I mean it's very possible. That this young woman Demi Lovato who. Struggled with sobriety who's been. On and off of the wagon and even as she's, talking about being sober. Apparently she's had quite a ride as so many people do show many people who struggle with sobriety she very well might not be here we're not for the fact That her friends had the Narcan so they were able. To administer, it this as the overdose was taking its effects and chimps their all in that world they were able to know, that they needed to do something now look, I'm surely not plotting that situation you could say what they shouldn't be in that situation to begin. With we're they're their overdosing like that. Well of course you're right But they are show at least having the Narcan. On a hand helps take that situation to a place that has. Greater safety associated, with it wow really something just a a great great ending. To, that, Demi Levato story and they say. That she was not completely sober for the six years she's been struggling. That, she has been on and. Off, of the sobriety show It's a struggle everybody I know and I'm sure it's it's probably. The same for you all of us know people who have struggled with this It's never, really over, they say it really, isn't over for a reason because you have to continue connected to that community that keeps you. Sober my pal I think has been sober. For I want, to say he's, been sober for forty, years and he still regularly attends. The meetings he's also supports others who have similar struggles I, told you I think one night about the fact that I used to work with someone who had been sober again for I'm going to say twenty five thirty years so he had struggled for a time he's, going gonna tell you must've been fifty for twenty five years he said it was so bad he was an alcoholic so. So bad that and. His desire for alcohol was so powerful that when he'd go over to people's homes and advertise the fact that he was. Schober and, turn down, any kind of liquor, that was served he'd go into the bathroom of the hosts home and look for any kind. Of perfume because perfume has alcohol in it And he said and I just used to spray it in the in the air, and sniff it and try to breathe in as much of it as I could I mean that is a chemical addiction And that speaks to the power of these addictions I. Mean think about that so I and we all have stories and some of them are heartbreaking stories. But the, the point is these are, these are serious. Addictions that that play you for. Your entire life so oftentimes the. Kind of vigilance, you need to make sure that you don't fall back into it I mean that's the kind of violent you need vigilance you need for an entire. Lifetime and, and so there you go Demi Levato at least there's, some there's some. Good news out of her world. Guess who's coming back to TV Kelsey grammer and. Frazier could it be CBS is looking at. Bringing back Kelsey grammer with Frazier I. Mean there've been a bunch of revivals right they, will and, grace has come back Murphy Brown they're, talking about bringing back Roseanne as you know I mean I understand they faltered a little. Bit but, they came back to record, ratings and they are, looking at a reboot of Frazier and again Kelsey grammer will play Frazier And del fill-in I guess some, of the other spots look you have to look at Frazier and remember that John Mahoney. You played, his father has passed away But he's meeting with writers. Kelsey grammer, as and they're all pitching different, concepts for. The follow up to the. Series David hi peers. You played his brother he's kinda onto other things too I mean I suppose. For the right money you can you can, rally everybody back Jane leaves Peri gilpin you remember everybody associated with that series ran for eleven seasons Yeah that that's kind of a sleeper it was it was. It. Was a, behemoth back in the. Day right and then it's just. Kind of, it's right there below the surface, as one. Of the most successful shows. Ever and it has. A ton of Emmys for writing producing I mean it's been You know it, can compete toe to toe with any other sitcom that. Way, all show the writing the writing. On that. Was sharp. And absolutely brilliant absolutely brilliant in fact I'd. Have. To I'd have to look back at maybe it might it might have been one of the at least in terms of the ninety one of the first sitcoms to. Maybe take, itself seriously And. By that, you mean well, it just because the writing was so sharp you. Know that's my that's my interpretation of, it and said you know what we. We're going to go above where you mean that's smart Yeah yeah yeah Yeah we'll get the low hanging fruit every now and then, because come on it's on the tree while there was a lot of they did a lot of visual stuff and and he even talked about the influence of Jack Benny on his his comedic style and on. The show itself but I hear. What you're saying it was. Very. Smart show absolutely, and you know he went on to produce some. Shows, he, produced Girlfriends is a Frazier is a Kelsey grammar. Show so as, a producer he you, know he's done some stuff and so if anybody can pull. This together it's, probably Kelsey grammer and apart from David apart from John Mahoney. Everybody's still around so they could probably get a going all right so. Watch for it, maybe at other device near you Frazier. Fund the reboot with Kelsey grammer Thompson ever Conway KFI AM.
