-- against the FCC policy on indecency could leave the door open for broadcast networks to increase expletives and nudity in their programming.
For his Hollywood capable of self regulation or -- they need the government to oversee what they do well spring court apparently doesn't -- of Peter -- is chairman and CEO Mandalay entertainment joins you talk about this racy subject good to see -- Peter thanks for coming entered.
Your your term so.
How first saw how do you think this decision the Supreme Court decision which kind of lays hands off at least of fox broadcasting for for the F bomb occasion be -- Way is that gonna change programming in any way by Hollywood.
I don't think so I think this ruling.
Is is -- very narrow ruling it if it didn't overturn the 1978.
Case I've got the ruling.
So I think they were really saying that.
You know incidental.
Kind of kind of nudity or spontaneous words are gonna be find in the same way and they are looking -- in the context of what's really happening today David.
You know at 35 years ago you didn't have games are violent -- have the Internet the way it was into the upper -- cable.
Area didn't have no -- boom showing.
The type of violence and advanced that happen in the world that is available to families and children so I think the context -- changed.
What I think is gonna happen is you're gonna have to rely not on -- Hollywood the purveyors of the content.
But on the marketplace.
He got up to rely on people managing their own children of their -- -- don't -- deciding they don't wanna be have affinity of those products.
That speak that way I don't think you know allow the government that the worst case in this case to be the ones that decide these kinds -- -- Exactly to your point we -- something else happened this week which kind of impinges on a list Bridgestone.
The tire company decided that they were not gonna support.
The halftime show what's Super Bowl because of their Janet Jackson -- wardrobe malfunction this year we had the the MIA singer today big -- -- and a bird.
Because of these things.
Bridgestone is pulling out and it makes you wonder whether you're right whether in fact the market can be a better self regulator than government censors.
I think you're right on exactly what to do you know they didn't really pull out they just moved off the halftime show they didn't give up the at the NFL and you will.
And the value of that proposition for their audience they just wanted to be more careful that maybe they wouldn't be I have an affinity you're -- proximity.
To anything that would go wrong I understand that but I don't think really anybody doesn't buy at higher because of their Bob woman's bare bottom as shown or dozen or -- expletive I really think that.
Combination is not really there I think really letting the market determine this and remember today.
These broadcasts as compete against an array of other assets that are very free cable which hasn't regulated the same way the Internet which is really.
Pervasive a wide -- And my first job but we just -- if we can put those figures back up again -- -- showed how the amount of revenue that's coming and it's going down for network's ad revenue by 2%.
And cable increased by seven point 7% so you're right on the money but I'm wondering Peter.
It seems that Hollywood always likes to push the limits on -- art can -- account -- are basically I agree with you but I'm they're gonna try to counter argument.
They always like to push the limits as far as they can -- now that the FCC is given him a little more room to run the they may go and audio look at you mentioned cable you'll look at shows like game of throw loans for example on HBO.
I mean that's that's a pretty damn break even though it's on cable as pretty racy stuff -- broadcast networks kind of try to push the limits further.
You know remember this all comes through the same bonds that same television the watches Barney.
You know and and kids programs and adult programs and value have we didn't have been DVR -- -- -- -- -- time -- at all on the ones thanks so I think you are going to see them trying to be more competitive whether that means being more daring to be competitive in the cable networks.
Probably sell but ultimately.
You're good you're not gonna stop the idea that they you have to -- -- advertising dollars not just eyeballs but advertising -- in order to be combative and noticed they have vital asset for their networks.
-- -- -- is with pornography everywhere by the way you'd get -- you don't get as much by competing are craziness is used after a sixty minutes.
Is still one of that that top network shows in terms ratings.
And -- like there was tell a story they tell a damn well but they tell a story that's more important sometimes in -- is right.
I think you're right I think they've been the networks fox AB CNBC all of them.
Habit correct they say in the world has changed since 1978.
And this -- ruling this regulation passed a change even the audiences change the marketplace is James.
And that's why they ruled very narrowly they didn't really want to go to the -- years.
All right I got -- -- who were out of time literally any movement on -- straight you're gonna do the biopic Sinatra -- Scorsese's directing any news.
Not yet but we'll gonna -- try and OK Peter Guber Mandalay entertainment -- great to see if Peter thank.
