>>It will be canceled within 1 month.<<
No it won’t. Glee wasn’t, even when the ratings tanked after the first half season.
It’s propaganda and will win every Emmy that comes around. It will not go away any time soon and will be lauded as a huge hit.
This is why we cut our cable and watch our Roku. The only things that come through the antenna that we watch is Createtv , the news and Judge Judy.
Bingo. You understand the situation perfectly. The entertainment business is not a business. The news business is not a business. They are not driven by profits, for they have other things in mind.
You could be right, but the people who make the shows aren't necessarily the same people who put them on the air.
Every defiancy is now acceptable as long as you laugh at it, people will say,'it is only a comedy'.
They do that with the cartoons, like the Simpsons.
...most of us have a gay couple in family....
NO, most of us do not.
it is not enough for it to be cancelled.
it must become so toxic no advertiser will touch it.
it must become so toxic as to end the careers of all performers involved.
Never gonna happen.
Two words: Charlie Sheen.
but dont be surprised if they prop this show up a long time because of a desire to normalize and propagandize the lifestyle.
Who is the ‘they’ you refer to?
The advertisers and their shareholders don’t give a flying rat’s patoot about normalizing the lifestyle. They are interested in the return.
They’ll say it was worth a shot and what’s next as they withdraw their support because it is not bringing the return they wanted.
sheen was a known quantity, these are nobodys.
“Who is the ‘they’ you refer to?”
NBC. I think they would take a loss on a show to plug the lifestyle. I don’t think they would be beyond discounting ad rates or even bullying advertisers, saying if you want to be on our most succcessful shows like football or talent contests, you have to be on here. I admit I don’t know the particulars of what they would do, but NBC’s liberalism is virulent.
