I just have one more question about the accounting here...

Columbo is one of the most highly regarded and successful detective shows in the history of television, but somehow didn't turn a net profit until 2016, some 45 years after Peter Falk first donned the raincoat. In a rare courtroom result against the "Hollywood accounting" system, a jury has held that at least $160 million has been improperly deducted from Universal City Studios' admitted profits.
The judge will decide whether another jury trial is in order to resolve remaining disputes or whether to appoint an accounting referee to calculate cumulative damages based on an aggregate of all the rulings.
