Phil Robertson is no businessman

. Duck Dynasty lose almost 50% of their viewers

That's so sad
When Duck Dynasty returned for their fourth season last year, their premiere episode was watched 11.77 million people. After Phil Robertson’s racist and homophobic remarks season five debuted to 8.5 million viewers. The second episode of the season dropped to 6.65 million viewers. The third episode stayed nearly even with episode two at 6.7 million viewers. By the fourth episode the show rebounded to 7.49 million viewers, but last night’s fifth episode dropped to new low of 6.51 million viewers.

While these are still really good numbers for a cable show, Duck Dynasty is no longer in the same league as AMC’s ratings phenom The Walking Dead. Phil Robertson’s racist and homophobic comments to GQ definitely pushed viewers away from the show. Beneath beards and duck calls, millions of Americans found an ugly intolerance for others that they refuse to support.


Racism and Homophobia Lose as Nearly 50% of Their Viewers Dump Duck Dynasty

It seems the biggest loser are your desperate lies complements of politicsusa. Try using the real numbers in context rather than your typical fabricating websites.

And I thought it was because of the big bucks he spent on NASCAR that pissed everyone off.

He does not give a rats butt what you think. or how many viewers watch.

He spoke his faith and Hitleresque Christianphobes attacked him.

The real loser is A&E for how they fubared their response,

As Phil himself said " I would never have taken it this far, Willie is the one who done all that. I just sit back and say send me my check, ya know what I mean".
All you Right wing phonies obfuscate now that Duck Dynasty has lost half it's market share. This had nothing to do with Robertson's past or how well their private business has done. The debate was about his relationship with A & E.

You Right wingers claimed he had a right to say whatever he wanted. A simple freedom of speech defense.

The Left said that when you enter into a business with a mass marketing media outlet that must appeal to the masses for ratings, you cannot make divisive comments. A & E spent millions creating, producing and advertising the show to appeal to a wide audience. Robertson's loose lips just cut their ratings in half. Your spin will be unsuccessful.

GAME, SET, MATCH

Duck Commander is the wholly owned brand of the Robertson family, it has nothing to do with A&E. Even as the Duck Dynasty tv show fades away, the Robertsons are set for generations to come.

That wasn't the issue. Their relationship with A & E was the sole issue. A sad attempt to spin.....LOL

he's not a kiss ass, not a media whore, and not shy. but he's wealthy beyond I could ever dream.

from your point of view, there's lots of stones ya could a thrown, but you're not even facing the right direction here.

That wasn't the topic we were debating on the previous threads. It had to do with what was acceptable behavior when you enter into a business relationship with a cable network. Don't give me this "he's not a media whore" b.s. You can't walk into a store without tripping over a DD display. His BIG mouth cut ratings for the show in half just as we told you it would. You were wrong again.
