    Decent numbers for Andi Mack, and an increase from last week. Maybe this silly boycott is ending and Disney Channel is regaining back its good numbers slowly, but surely.


    • CMM

      What silly boycott? The threatened writer’s strike?


      • Amaury

        I don’t know what the rules here are regarding what can be discussed or not, so I don’t want to get into it too much.

        Basically, parents are boycotting Disney because of an episode of Star vs. the Forces of Evil that aired on Disney XD on March 1 which featured a scene where people of the same gender were kissing. Then also because of that Beauty and the Beast film that was released on March 17 which featured a gay moment. Disney is moving forward, trying to get caught up with the times, and promoting acceptance and generally just featuring slightly more mature topics in their series. Good Luck Charlie with one of its last episodes in season four having a child with two mothers is an example of the former and Andi Mack is an example of the latter. This isn’t something they would’ve done before. Allegedly, parents are claiming that their kids shouldn’t be exposed to that “kind of stuff” and it can damage them.

        That’s really all I’ll say for now, though.


        • Amaury

          Now, ratings started declining way back on November 18, 2016, with sitcoms. The theory back then was that people were boycotting Disney because of Girl Meets World likely being canceled even though no official announcement was made until January.


          • CMM

            I second what Destiny stated – just keep any bad language and vulgarity to yourself ;o)

            I could understand parents concerned over cartoons. I could even understand them concerned over including a gay scene in a live-action film copied from a classic cartoon they may have shared with their kids and now may feel the need to explain that scene. I watched Star vs… and never noticed that kissing scene amid the wackiness of the show.

            I wonder if parents realize, or you, that Disney owns Freeform and they have a show called The Fosters? That is pretty much in-your-face with these type of controversial scenes or subjects.


        • Destiny

          I’ve never seen Mitch or Mitch moderate a post here before. They seem fine with people discussing whatever here. So no worries about that, you’re free to post anything TV related without fear, be it opinions on an episode, any drama, ratings, news etc.


          • Amaury

            Ah, good to know. I’ll try not to go too crazy, though! LOL!


          • Mitch Salem

            Very occasionally, people get personally insulting here, and that’s when we step in. But as long as the comments are reasonably civil, we’re fine with any subjects being discussed.


  2. Amaury

    In other news, Quantico has been renewed for a third season: http://deadline.com/2017/05/quantico-renewed-season-3-josh-safran-stepping-down-showrunner-1202092950/

    Although if I recall correctly, the general consensus here was that it wasn’t a very good series.


    • Rithvik Lee Pack

      I don’t hate quantico I like it , it’s just it’s rating aren’t good


    • Destiny

      Channing Dungey deserves to be fired.


      • Shan

        he’s probably trying to turn ABC back into the lower rating NBC Blue Network or more like a CW Blue Network


        • Destiny

          Think about it though. Quantico pulled between a 0.5-0.6 with two fantastic shows supporting it. With the usual declines every show experiences, this shows numbers could get real ugly, real fast. American Crime dipped as low as a 0.3 in this slot.

          She’s just sabotaging ABC’s Sunday line-up if OUAT and Quantico get the 8 and 10pm slots respectively.


    • Monzo

      I wonder if that use “strong international seller” is just some excuse, because is there really any editor out there who checks international tv ratings? Maybe from the UK and Australia, because it’s easy to read, but elsewhere? Quantico got hyped very much in France and Germany and flopped badly, just to name two countries. Moreover, tv stations overseas are forced to buy a studio package of movies and tv series, so they decide if they spend (or waste) money to sub or dub certain tv shows.
