You have a cbs addiction.

"homeland"? that is showtime.

I have five people say i don't care about the store.

People are like, big yield.

If there are no shows you want to watch right now.

Where will you watch pga championship this weekend?

Or nfl football?

If you want to watch it.

You are going to tempt some people who would never go to to watch this to do it, and then they will realize it is not so bad.

Why pay $200 a month for cable.

Will there be a chance to see the internet of either charging more to get things like netflix, to take advantage of us watching streaming television?

Certainly google feels it is going that way.

Intel feels it is going that way.

Sony feels it is going that way.

To depend on broadband instead of the cable that is running into your home, it is a lot for people to do.

The "barons" cover, that flick in the hole.

Others going completely the other way.

I think there is a lot of hype around the amount of money they spend and the quality of these programs.

I think the programs are great.

Are they going to drive the stock?

I don't know.
