That sounds like elon musk.

That's dead on.

It's friday -- we are all relieved, washington is over and when it a single best chart.

This weekend on television is our biggest thing on tv which is zombies.

This chart is based on data from nielsen.

Horror movies are doing well at the box office.

"carrie" is opening this weekend.

Probably not.
