    Well, you're wrong. The show is the top of the network lineup by a ton. The other shows are starting to peter out. That's why they are busy trying to rejigger the formats of many of them. Also should be mentioned, the other popular shows on the network, their stars feel the same way as Phil.

    Yes and then everyone in the country wouldn't be talking about the show today. It's a PR dream. Think about it. A&E wasn't ever going to lose any advo dollars. Not from their most watched show. Any advertisers who left would have been quickly replaced by folks who are lined up to advertise on the show.

    Which is entirely fine, they did not go out and publically in the media, causing A&E public harm that is the difference

    And you're characterization is false. Actually the foamers at the mouth are the GLAAD folks and yourself who don't watch the show in the first place. You all are the ones who kicked this whole thing off. Phil and the family are not at all impacted other than perhaps positively.
    Lol your desperation is hilarious. Please tell me what "I have started" as you claim. I laugh at people like you foaming at the mouth over his suspension. I don't care either way so how have I started anything with this? Please continue though, your desperation is hilarious.

    In the end, he's just another dumb white man (i'm white btw). You can have a little bit of empathy for Paula Dean (it was said a long time ago). Duck dad learned a valuable lesson about what you can and cannot say publicly while under contract with a global media company.
    There no analogy that fits between Dean's behavior and what Phil said in an interview. And Phil learned no lesson, he doesn't need A&E, the show, or the proceeds from the contract.

    And no, his interview in no way impacts A&E's ability to attract new viewers. In fact it pretty much guarantees the show will continue to be the massive draw for A&E in the future.

    The timing of all this is a key indicator. This season is already in the can. Phil and family are already on camera vacation.

    Actually that's not true. The Gold Rush folks come to mind. They say all sorts of things in twitter and the social media. The thing is, the viewership, both current and future possible, aren't insulted at all that the folks featured on these shows believe what they do. They aren't insulted that they pray on every show or profess beliefs in traditional Biblical teachings.

    Your lack of reading is hilarious. Where did I say YOU started anything? Where have I been foaming at the mouth? In fact I've been laughing this entire thread at the butthurt perpetual victims that think they are having a negative effect on the show with their protests about what Phil said, when in actuality they are promoting the show AND Phil's popularity.
