What does everyone think, It dropped 28% last night, From 12 million viewers to 8 million viewers from season 4 to the start of season 5 opener last night!! I watched it, pretty boring and a lot of commercials, Without Si it would really lose viewers!!

I saw a short news brief on HLN earlier togay and they said the total viewing audience had droped 25-30 % since all that stuff got started, Seems as if A&E has taken a big hit. All their programing has suffered. Weather channel and Direct are in a pissing contest now also.

It's not that anyone dropped Phil and the Family, just don't want to give A&E any ratings !! My opinion from what I have read anyway!!

Thats what the HLN report concluded, the drop in viewers was across the board and was not specific to only one program. Looks like heads will probably roll at the network when the sponsors start taking advantage of lower advertsing rates because of fewer viewers.

That's what I think too. I quit watching A&E when they started all of that. We are suppose to have freedom of speech. I would think a lot of people just didn't want to give A&E any ratings. I think another network should have snatched them up right away.

I dont't think any other network could have just picked up the show because the show is actually the property of the network. It would be legally impossible to air the name and cast on another network. The cast of the show is also under contract to the network.

I think you guys have hit on the major cause of the drop in viewers, people resent the network telling people what they have to say or cannot say on a reality show, which is an infringement on their right of free speech.

If you will notice just a bit closer, you will see that a vast amount of money being spent by the federal government these days, also comes from China,,,,borrowed from China I might add. Most all clothing products from all stores are made in Chine, even most U.K. products. and of coures the cell phones are a biggie.

They like everyone has the right to freedom of speech. However they work for a&e whom as an employer has the right to reprimanded an employee. If anyone goes into the work place and makes racial slurs or derogatory statements about a group of people they place their job in jeopardy. A&e made a financial decision period. The duck product is on every shelf in every store. Side note...the show is boring...thats a fact jack.

I have to agree idk, They crammed a 30 minute show into two 30 minute episodes with all those commercials!! It's like all reality shows, A couple of seasons and people move on for different entertainment, even though Duck Dynasty is still going strong, I can see their future dropping off too during season 5!!! It was pretty bad the other night!!

A&E ducked up, the Cracker joint ducked up , and the rump rangers ducked up. Ole phil and the birds of his feather came out of it all flying high. You guys need to go ahead and vent, get it off your chest, pick up your loose tail feathers and move on. Quit beating around the bush and let the robertsons have both barrells. Then you will feel better.

<quoted text>dont have a problem with the Robertson or their views. Just saying a&e made a financial decision. Had nothing to with freedom of speech or a lack there of. It was marketing and advertising. The shelf life for the duck crew is running out. 5 or 6 seasons. There is still significant amount of money to be made from the product. They should and are entitled to make all they can. What happened with them was in no way an infringement on the first amendment. If phil had been arrested by the fbi for his comments then we have a problem. However if you worked for any public entity and made derogatory state's about a group of people you could loose your job. Free make the statement but not free from the responsibility. It all worked out because too many dollars would have been left on the table. 12 million viewers for last season premier 8 this year

Duck Dynasty dropped another 2.8 million viewers last night, The end is near if something big doesn't happen, too scripted and staged!! Si vision was a big gimmick to sell another product they are backing!!

The Point has been proven by public reaction to A&E' Cracker Barrell and the homosexual community and all the world. The american public... does not as a society...support homosexual activity. All public personalities and corporations will be affected by this controversy, no doubt. Accepting something as merely a fact of life in this world, is a far cry from supporting it. This has proven to all that America is still a God fearing Society and supports scripture as it is written. Duck Dynasty will come and go, The robertson individuals will come and go, the homosexuals will come and go,.....but .....God and the written word and believers and homosexuals will always be here until the end.........Then and only then will we know the final result....nuff said.
