Norman Lear can't imagine watching TV on a phone

Television legend Norman Lear says he can't imagine watching a great performance on a cellphone.

"I know it's done all the time. But children do children's things, and adults do adult things," the 94-year-old Lear said in an interview on CNBC's "Binge." "And I don't think that's very adult, walking around looking at performance on a cellphone."

Lear produced and wrote for such classic shows as "All in the Family," "The Jeffersons" and "One Day at a Time."

Netflix is re-creating "One Day at a Time" for airing in 2017.

"They'll be able to binge 13 right away," Lear said. "I can't believe that some people will sit and watch it in a long evening."

Lear said he's had only one binge experience, watching Louis C.K.'s "Horace and Pete."

"I heard about it and looked at one. I could not help but look at the second and the third," Lear said. "That's as much binging as I've done, and I can't wait to get to the fourth, fifth and the rest."

Lear called "Curb Your Enthusiasm" creator Larry David and "South Park" creator Matt Stone the greatest comedic minds in today's television.

Coming Sept. 6 on "Binge," Carl Quintanilla talks with Morgan Freeman and his producing partner, Lori McCreary, about how Trump vs. Clinton has changed Hollywood.
