In television, movies or books and music summaries, history it's time for some coming attractions with a pandemic taking an increasingly lower profile things do seem to be getting back to normal, but not everything.

Take the way we get our home entertainment. It's a new day right or is it caliph. SNA has been assessing our options during the pandemic TV was one of our safest companions with seemingly endless program options to keep us occupied and that's a problem. If you have 10,000 titles to choose from, how much time are you going to want to spend looking for something want to watch something later on Sunday morning.

The streaming wars has was one of the most memorable books for any season that Koppel takes stock with best-selling author Mitch album when it comes to popular biographies greatest number of bald and rude. You'd have to include Abe Lincoln.

Certainly Winston Churchill and then of course there's Maury Schwartz I recall Bruce was the book so 18 million something like that. The ongoing phenomenon of Tuesdays with Maury ahead on Sunday morning talking with three giants of entertainment this morning. All women with very different callings close to 40 animals in Lee County talks with Wynonna John struggling to make sense of her mother.

Naomi's recent I did not know that she was at the place she was at when she ended it.

Gwyneth Paltrow marks a birthday milestone with Tracy Smith as a woman you turn 50 and maybe we all give ourselves permission to be exactly who we are and we stop trying to be what other people are expecting us to be and I'll check in with Sigourney Weaver. I was having a banner year at the movies I usually have something simmering and so looks like I threw some magic beans out the window and they all suddenly went like that.

I'll look ahead to the new season has something for everyone.

David Martin previews a new drama date based on a true story about a most unlikely beer run in the midst of the Vietnam War, plus a report from Steve Hartman and more on this Sunday morning for the new season September 25, 2022 and will be right back.

Once upon a time, some of you may recall, there were three channels were television soon three became 300 and now our choices are quite literally almost limitless. We began our preview of this new season with caliph assembly for more than four decades, PBS and Sesame Street were inseparable.

The letter was first started literally was mostly preschool and TV you have heard of's pre-k was called Sesame Street and PBS back in that day. Yes Steve young would CEO of Sesame workshop. It is a responsibility, but if they find responsibility to account how are you older episodes still air on public television. Beloved children show moved to HBO, the premium cable network in 2015. Four years later, it moved again to HBO Mac and online streaming service young would. Since today's toddlers are very sophisticated consumers know they don't understand.

Tune into this time or that time they expect the content to fit their schedule and their lifestyle is something something during the pandemic. There was an influx of viewers. The so-called streaming wars heated up between services like HBO, Mac, Netflix and Amazon prime video Apple TV plus who and our parent company's paramount plus people are watching more than ever. Alex Weprin writes for the Hollywood reporter says that that watching is spread across more apps more channels or platforms. It's all fragmented in a way that it just wasn't before he says what watching affects how we watch when it comes to news and sports watch that life and so those are the things that are kind of keeping the traditional television business models live broadcast or cable in the traditional model is all about appointment viewing right it's getting people to tune in at 9 PM on Thursday or if there's a breaking news about the kind of watch and rolling coverage to major advertisers catching everyone around the TV is not just about together. They want millions of people watching the same thing at the same time watching the same car kind of something you really can't match in streaming where the viewership is diffused across thousands of titles. More choice for subscribers means more challenges for the streaming services as viewers pick between the many options this year. Netflix announced that its Arab seemingly endless growth was over. Does that mean that people are getting little disenchanted with the content or they just running out of humans.

I think it's partly because there's a lot more competition now Netflix for years, kind of had scrimmage themselves. There were other players, but no one had the depth of the library that they had of course those libraries aren't quite as permanent as the term would suggest this summer.

Many Sesame Street fans were startled when HBO Max pulled 200 episodes from its archive Steve young would suggested the move may have been related to changes in HBO's former parent company, Warner media they're going through. As you have a new merger with discovery and are going through some shifts, but overall, Nielsen O'Shea that were top 15 showing the whole service finding there's a limit to the number of subscriptions, viewers will pay for streamers are looking for ways to cut back the average your past between three and four's description. According to Deloitte and that's a problem because there's a lot more than three or four streaming services out there so it seems like one of the promises of Netflix and some of these other networks that finally we wouldn't have to watch ads anymore. Yeah, that's certainly changing. Increasingly, every streaming service, including Netflix is going to launch advertising supported options can be cheaper or even free like Amazon's freebie and Paramount's Pluto TV essentially throwback to the way TV used to be the old business model television was so good generate so much cash and so much profit and the new model is actually somewhat harder to make a profit on because the cost of adding one more subscriber is so much higher, which may be one reason why Amazon prime recently became the exclusive home of the NFL's Thursday night football. An example of the streaming service starting to act more like an old-fashioned TV network throughout the industry. Weprin predicts increasing consolidation and as for those limitless program options in the old days they used to say about table 200 channels and nothing to watch sometimes it still feels like there's nothing to watch. You know somethings always hold true in theory there should be something you want to watch, but in practice if you have 10,000 titles to choose from, how much time you going to want to spend looking for something want to watch something, often something familiar networks even matter.

Everyone knows Sesame Street ever love Sesame Street and I suspect that a lot of people would follow Sesame Street wherever it went. Sesame Street is arguably the most iconic brand and children's television. If they left HBO Max went to Netflix or paramount. Plus, there's no doubt the people to watch Sesame Street on those services there and that unique position where the brand of the show Sesame Street is actually more recognizable than the streaming services that that provide them just me she's not going anywhere.

Steve young would Sesame workshop tries not to worry too much about the streaming wars Sesame Street letter were good and doing really well, which is making high-quality educational content will partner with PBS will partner with HP acts and if we do something and we do something right.

We know we will be noticed and we know it will matter how likely drama today about the Vietnam War. David Martin tells us all about the greatest beer run ever had 50 years of telling stories about this 99% of the people that believe me, but you don't use tall tale of the greatest beer run ever really did happen when a run for our lives is now a motion picture, directed by Academy award winner Peter Farrell brought beer to his friends in Vietnam. I just really thought that's the movie. What was it about the story that connected with it was that sure you know hubris the stupidity to even attempt it. But then to actually go through the pull it off. I love that guy.

And what exactly did Jackie pull off that Zac Efron is the young techie spending way too much time at his local bar in New York City chickie. Had you ever heard of Zac Efron honestly know so here's the good news.

He says you nailed what you think you nailed the check. I think I understood part of why he did it comes from a pure place inside of them got a good hot chick to bring my where did this crazy idea.

You don't have to go further than Col. not really a Col. little former G.I. who tended bar and hated seeing protests against the Vietnam War was from the neighborhood were fighting and dying.

These protesters not know that soldier see that that is broadcast all over the in the movie. He is played by Bill. I like to go over track down all the boys in the neighborhood and just voice. I do what I'll go over how to get there don't you was a merchant seaman, so we signed onto an ammo ship bound for Vietnam and set out to find sixgun became full when one was killed and another sent home with malaria did it occur to you that this might be pretty hard to find for docs it would be impossible but I had to try and if I failed I felt you 10,000 miles just to bring us up there. Here they are jerky and his buddy at the world premiere of the greatest beer run ever. 500,000 soldiers and Marines and country at that time and he finds for us. Amazing what are the odds. No one one Tommy Collins was the first, what the hell you're doing as I can to bring you a bit late chickie. It barely is a motion when he found Collins is a pretty screwy friends. Collins just came 10,000 nautical miles to deliver your sexy thank you as crazy as I you will just seems to have been blessed with good look. I don't believe in coincidences anymore.

Somebody wanted the habit sticking out like a sore thumb in his Madras shirt and jeans.

Donahue got around Vietnam by talking his way aboard military flights. The constant questions. Who the hell are you and whispered to them, I'd say if I told you the truth wouldn't believe that I work it work if you don't believing ask what do I took the picture in the picture proves that he was that Dugan and his platoon were manning an ambush site near the border with North Vietnam. If our language is a miracle in itself. We were never the same place one to three days at a time when Donahue found you should be funny was a turning point in his direction of light in the beginning because you think how silly is this. But the reality of it is not silly going taste Vietnam about to get the rest of America chickie found out it was easier to get in and get out but is incredible luck. Hell, walking down a jungle road drive Kevin McLean is like a free five pulled up next to I get it. I said chick holy Mary, Joseph, to look around. It looks as though the entire wars been fought here in 1968 Tet Offensive. Chickie still had one more name owners, which Bobby Pappas basted a huge ammunition dump attacked by the Vietcong. They walk $8 million worth mission and eight seconds was a little awake in the Vietnam Pappas started taking it out on chickie I start giving them the business of the war is over, the wars over take a look at this point just look like a horror show when he was yelling at me, I'm smile and I had a big grin because I and here he was cursing me out with this guy your character yes has the best line he says to chickie. They got a good heart but just your brain Amari about going to get you killed right.

Did you really say that yes I was scared for. I know how he was going to get home where he was going to go you know by now, chickie did get home this long strange trip you. I was a staunch supporter of the war, but when I got there I saw things that just weren't right and it was just false, totally false. You say you came home with a different view of the war yet the truth so which is more improbable your trip or the fact that after all these years of moving the movie that's more like Psyche said everyone's doing something this movie is going to be how most people remember you good with that.

Okay I did the right thing. I was let these kids die without me help and that's what I wanted to do.

It's the new season on Sunday morning and here again is Jane probably something big happened 50 years ago this Tuesday. Tracy's methods and conversation with actor and entrepreneur, Gwyneth Paltrow, when you were, let's take 20, 30 years old had to see what you been doing 50 you know if like your dad at that point okay. She's clearly far from dad.

But Gwyneth Paltrow who will indeed turn 50 this week is already well into Second Life beat everybody to the office space. She's founder and CEO of the lifestyle brand group.

It's a website to cutting-edge ideas that could really help us optimize our live TV shows is about time that we take this approach to sex and lots of product aimed at making you feel and look good. The group flagship store is in Santa Monica, California where Paltrow was raised by mom, actress, Blythe Danner and dad producer director Bruce Paltrow growing up watching her mom Paltrow knew she wanted to act in success came early. She she won an Academy in 1998. Shakespeare in love won an Oscar 20s now raising.

When I now the time I thought I was thankful you know what you think.

That did tear mind.

Well, I think, to reach that kind of like pinnacle at that age and have that much scrutiny and attention like no matter what you do after that you can't really band right it's like you have a few years of like nothing to live up to that lot to hold. She continued to star in movies for the next decade. This is more to say what is and you intend to stay here for coming home, but her father's untimely death in 2002. Put her on a new when did you start caring about wellness. I'll tell you exactly when my father got cancer and I was helping him one day and feeding him with the Sarandon feeding to and I struck me like what what is in this can that I'm injecting directly into his stomach, and it was the first time I made a connection between food wellness. I'll never forget that moment when I started my client something else besides making out with Matt Damon on screen.

She started researching and sharing what you learn, and it turned into the website.

Her initials +2 hours because she'd heard successful Internet companies have double lows in their name. What I hear are scientists coming here there's lots of mixing testing textures and fragrances. Today, the companies reported to be a $250 million business. It's also a controversial one. Some doctors and scientists have slammed goop and Paltrow for recommending methods and products that aren't scientifically proven what you say to people who say that your promoting pseudoscience. I don't understand where that comes from because we don't do that never done. I mean, especially when we started, there were so many modalities and ways of achieving wellness.had no scientific backing, but that have worked in India for thousands of years of work in China so I think it was like a way that take shots at us.

But there's nothing we talk about. That's actually lacking my little some of its medium may be the bag used to say that a $66 JJ inserted vaginally could regulate hormones and tighten the pelvic floor. They were investigated by California medical task force for false claims in 2018 and settled the case for hundred $45,000.

They admitted no wrongdoing but offered full refunds and tweak the product description and they're still selling the agon line. There's a whole industry now around strengthening your pelvic floor. We were just early. Paltrow says she and Cooper often misunderstood because there ahead of their time.

We would talk about something in the Internet with breakout and then six months later two years later, it would be widely adopted give you an example. Well, the gluten-free thing is no perfect example of that.

People thought that was totally nuts. There's a bunch of examples of where at the time people are like that go into this crazy girl talking about, you know gluten-free are getting a nice divorce. Yes, the divorce when Paltrow and musician Chris Martin announced their conscious uncoupling in 2014 eyes rolled they raise their two kids together while remaining good friends. I mean as much as people set out conscious uncoupling you guys really did figure it out.

I think I think we dad, and he's completely my family and I love him and he would do anything for me I would do anything for him we would do anything for our kids. We really did commit to wanting our children to be as skate by the divorce as possible. Paltrow now has a blended family with husband, TV producer, Brad felt Chuck and his two kids. Her oldest Apple just left for college house that wow that is now I know it sounds not, but it feels almost as profound as giving birth, and she approaches another milestone Gwyneth Paltrow seems to be handling it well. As a one-man turn 50 and maybe we all give ourselves permission to be exactly who we are and we stop trying to be what other people are expecting us to be. We kind of exhale into this other thing have you given yourself permission to be who you are.

Yes, but it's taken me time. This is intelligence matters with former acting Dir. of the CIA Michael Morel this week around expert Kareem stage report talks about the potential new nuclear deal between Iran and the United States political argument to say we should be using pressure on Iran lifting sanctions against them. It's a much easier political argument to say we should be tougher on this regime was is premised on death to Israel and America follow. Intelligence matters ever you get your podcasts now streaming progress and start doing crazy time once final point is when people in the best way to protect people is to convict final season Millstream plus for the record books. One of the best-selling memoirs of all time and its author Mitch album is taking stock with our senior contributor Ted Koppel tonight more lessons on living.

This is what it was ABC news. We under the producing Siu Nightline programs with a retired university professor who was dying of ALS offer known as Lou Gehrig's disease. Morning them angry and bitter that I get up and say what we could never have anticipated was that those conversations with Morrie Schwartz would become among the most popular programs we have never done that. It turned out it was just the beginning because among those viewers was a young sportswriter Metro had been so close to him in college I took every class he offered. I promised him that that I graduated that I would always stay in touch and I broke that promise. So for me it was a question of all my God is dying. What do I do now and how I try to make up for what I haven't done the best, Mitch began visiting Maury weekly every Tuesday. As it turned out until Maury.and then Mitch wrote a book Tuesdays with Morrie.

You may have heard different good writer. You're not Mark Twain. So what is the chemistry of parolees years with a copy of the book sold 18 million something like that 18 million is there ever been biographical work. So a memoir not to let me Tuesdays with Morrie was first published 25 years ago its own growing popularity was celebrated recently at a national book 1st in Washington, Maureen software, so I was confuse cultural, religious, racial people getting out of most books well learned that the appeal of Tuesdays with Morrie isn't my writing.

I'm not Mark Twain. It's the story of a younger person was a little lost in an older person was about to leave the world who says let me tell you what I've learned.

Almost everybody can find themselves in one of those two characters.

We ask you, what do you think it was about your version, Ted and Lori have made it the most popular Nightline number two was polluted made Morrie accessible and when you see someone close to you soon to wrong it will watching lose blue to and he never lost his spirit by body and if you're thinking that she was seeing that has dramatic potential. You'd be right. There is a play and it has been produced all languages.

Mitch can recall then like 600 different productions of life world to close as I there was the movie yes one trip to Boston to visit Sam sorry and I do remember the first I went to the set of Jack Lemmon was playing Morrie is there was playmate and I heard Jack Lemmon say Mitch, when you learn how to die, Jack Lemmon told me privately that he had been diagnosed with cancer. I remember he asked me questions. He wasn't asking me questions about Morrie. He was asking me questions for himself. He later told me that was of all the roles played in the select that was the one that met the most next Tuesday okay you almost universal appeal of Tuesdays with Morrie is produced to precarious tension between legitimate education and the pressure to merchandise at the height of this I got a note saying we wanted to.

Morrie calendar with expressions from Morrie on every know and they sent thing we want to do a bumper sticker I said no. Then they said someone select a bracelet WW M. The what would Morrie do now, instead of what would Jesus think God I turned down everyone. Those things perhaps no one's life has been more profoundly changed by Tuesdays with Morrie and Mitch's return. Your letter from so totally fortuitous with Morrie.

People would spot me in an airport hey sports guy who's going to Super Bowl and I would say patriots and just keep going up the escalator after Tuesdays with Morrie. Hey, my mother died of cancer and the last thing we did was read a book together can't talk to about and you can't go patriots stop and listen. Most people live matter how happy they look on the outside of walking around with a piece of a broken heart may choose your initial motivation in writing the book was to raise enough money to pay Morrie's medical bills. I believe you will greatly from one room to run to the firm continue to and Mitch is become deeply engaged in charitable work. That's totally due tomorrow 100%.

Morrie told me the aphorism about giving his living as I watched him always helping other people while he was dying. I sound get it. You're the one that they should be stealing sorry for him.

He said because that's taking and taking makes me feel like I'm dying in giving makes me feel like I'm living, Mitch now operates nine separate charitable operations in Detroit while Prince Munson 2010 and Morrie's right more alive during those moments that I am in anything writing about power goes out all the time.

It's hot and sweaty is uncomfortable but I always sleep so much better there and take two Mitch is about 20 hours of audio conversation with Morrie permitting listeners to respond because today to eavesdrop on moments more than 27 years ago Mitch Shockey Moore's used to do that a lot. Mitch, make sure that Outlook is fiddling with something look over love you by the end I said I love you too you Morrie conversation come to the group so don't Tuesdays and will continue the conversation.

Have you ever done it many times, almost every, Boston will make a deal.

Mitch after undead talk I'll listen.

I think it's the whole philosophy more, which is if you spend your time is Morrie did. Then when you die actually not on the percent gone. You live on in the heads and the hearts everybody you touched this puppy. Not a day goes by my life that I don't hear Morrie's voice I hear him ringing around like a penny inside a piggy bank when you pick it up and shake it. There is country music genres are in the league. Although, as you probably know, earlier this year Naomi Gerard grappled with depression was found dead the day before.

She and her daughter were to be inducted into the country music Hall of Fame. Wynonna John hasn't talked about that awful day until now. Here's hourly counseling. This is the first interview I've done since she died. So this is here we are in a new chapter begins you know the judge is one that she wished had never been written about her mother, Naomi, John started singing together at home that nine years ago used to call themselves to read here hillbillies from Kentucky way back when we were together 1980, he became one of the most successful country music duos in his girls start some pretty big dreams number one singles 15 nothing like Emily or me and sometimes the only harmony we had was in music is much as they complemented often. Records of their mother-daughter partnership seemed really into incredibly close and that she get mad at me and why did you do that and then we'd not get along and be disconnected. Then we come back together and hug and cry. It was incredibly complicated. We tried really hard and those of the tears because I know that we try we did pretty damn good.

Most of the time smoothed out a bit when Naomi retired after being diagnosed with hepatitis. What things still demand you the most recent was this past April at the CMT music awards at their best big here big stage last to get. I got the call went over and saw her say goodbye to in the hospital and I close your eyes and kissed her for him was that and next thing I know I'm sitting here on the side porch and I'm just trying to figure out what's next. After long public battle with depression.

Naomi Gerard took her own life at the age of 76.

Next day jobs were inducted the country music. I did not know that she was at the place she was at when she ended it because she had episodes before and she got better and that's what I live in is like. Was there anything I should have looked for or should have known. I didn't care. Ever. Are you angry at all. Yes, incredibly angry way. Now, I don't think self not for a while and I'll let you know. I'll call you up and literally send you a note just to feel your mom. I do I do if you were nudging me and sometimes I laugh, and sometimes I say I really miss you Wyatt you here so we can argue. She told me one time she took my hand and she said my life is better because of you. Those are the memories that are starting to come through more and more I think when you lose your mother a lot of that crap goes away because it doesn't matter anymore. It just doesn't neither do some of the disagreement she had with her famous sister and actress Ashley. We both kind look at each other like I've got you right we look at each other.

We see were so united right now. I think more so than we have been a long time and you seem like a grave in different ways. We do very much so every family member can agree with me on this one were all very different in this family. All three jobs near one another. What's not to love about an hour outside Nashville memories are everywhere that still runs even in old Bridge parked near a pastor my mom used to give me the grocery list and send me to the store really is. I myself in this car at the this is really happening though the last few months. She says his and her husband, musician practice motion be backing her up on starting this week featuring mostly music by the job. All my guys so long. Okay it was supposed to be human to one that was announced only weeks before her mom died is getting back onto her is that therapy in some ways I have no idea. I think it's important to do it if that makes sense. I feel like I have my marching orders.

Those orders come directly from her mom. She sits along with a few other tips Kleenex in her bra at all times.

Now idea and Chapstick tennis somewhere and she began to rehearse damn started to bring about a solution I stage that first night probably say something like this post be like this because not right supposed to be the two of us and I'm going to be angry because she's not there.

Looking forward to quite sure she's grown up knowing that the show must go music. The only lease keeps the grief I want to come out on stage and sing from my nails a song that helps someone out that on me singing to help someone feel better. That's always in my spirit, 20, 22, not to be a very good year for actor Sigourney Weaver yet another stellar chapter in a storied career. You are such a girl look at you not hear well I think that's why I like it so much she nearly in the city need to come and get our hands dirty. Smell the soil very inspiring at the New York botanical Garden in the Bronx lifelong night.

Sigourney Weaver is in her element are you harvesting me botanical garden grown. They say that with a garden you plant the garden first year it sleeps second year it creeps 30 year leaps good-looking but there's never been a year like this one for 72-year-old Sigourney Weaver for movies in the next four months. I usually have something simmering and so looks like I threw some magic beans out the window and they all simply went like that going with guerrillas working with ghosts three time Oscar nominee is a commanding presence and power seats and iconic space space get away from her. You warrant officer Ellen Ripley and the alien franchise is how Sigourney Weaver made her name now she was born Susan Weaver. Sigourney was the name she took for herself from the novel the great Gatsby when she was 13. I had great trouble saying at the height of 6 feet. My name is Sue so small I just saw this name and I went oh I love that it goes on fantastic. I like the look of it. Three syllables I thought I'm getting use that until I can figure out what name I'd really like because I'm looking to use crazy name like Sigourney. It was absolutely a placeholder. My pretend name was Gisele and you went with Sigourney that wasn't us name now.

We had had parents who were not expecting the careers that we went on to have did your parents think you could act. I'm sure they didn't her English mother had a career on stage and film in the 30s and 40s. Her father was a pioneer in television in the 50s. Sylvester Weaver created both today and the Tonight Show.

I think that they were verified that I was gonna take this on. My father thought is good to go to drama school that would probably shake this goal right out of me and it almost did Weaver attended the Yale school of drama.

I didn't really belong there. I wish I gone to like second city or something. She thought like a fish out of water in the faculty seem to agree. They were not supportive of this place. So yeah, I have to say, they could not have been meaner and the irony was that they were fired. When I graduated. So the lesson to me is don't believe what your teachers tell you deflated but undeterred, she returned to New York City with a new attitude. What did she have to lose. When I went to an audition I just trying to inhabit that character for a few minutes just be up to work and I wasn't trying to get somewhere because I I figured I wouldn't so I just thought I just do my thing. After four years on stage.

Off off Broadway or first film appearance was a small nonspeaking role in Annie Hall followed barely 2 years later by the Ridley Scott blockbuster alien I got really lucky came out of nowhere, so that miracle happened.

I remember thinking at science-fiction it doesn't matter what I do I were these very high hooker boots made me about 7 feet tall. I stalked into that meeting, Ridley asked me what I thought of the script and we just started talking. I could see the casting person in the background who is kind going like really want to know what you think.

Superstar had arrived, but she didn't play the part.

It certainly didn't make me want to have a film career which is ironic because I was in very good position so I didn't really do anything for a couple of years I went back to the theater and I just felt I really wanted to learn high craft now in the decade of her career. The long-awaited sequel to the box office, record-setting avatar arrives in December, but in the coming weeks shall be seen in master gardener yard in the middle of the night paying little visit to this one here. Stop called Jane a timely and provocative film about abortions. 73 1960 W. strip Sheila's which one of you Jane were all out this week. The good house with Kevin Kline. She plays a recovering alcoholic healthy like to have a seat really to do this I need a drink.

Is this woman who was at the top of her game this slipping and sliding against ageism, her assistance stolen all her clients and she's being pushed off her perch and she decides to fire back in fight back know how many projects are there where an older one gets to any of that like none with more than 60 film credits and still counting. Sigourney Weaver seems to have found her place, and that her own steady pace. And that's the secret of Hollywood longevity. I think I was very lucky because I was in the bay, but I could play babe. I was at this, but I could play that I would always just pick the story and not the role, and I thought, is this a story I want to see the story about something I really believe in it has cumulatively shown a lot of different fun things that I got the ladies got got rain shall that's I think for me the greatest compliments of thinking. Steve Hartman now with a story about friends in need.

When people first see nine-year-old Carson Majors of Encinitas, California. Everyone jumps to the same conclusion, but she doesn't have cancer. She's fine.
