A&E Network Loses Almost HALF Of Its Viewership After Cancellation Of Live PD Program

The A&E Network cancelled the extremely popular ‘Live PD’ program several weeks ago in the wake of the protests over the death of George Floyd.

Now they are paying a heavy price.

The network has lost approximately half of its viewership. That’s amazing.

The Wall Street Journal first reported that average primetime ratings dropped 49 percent from this time last year, which at the time was four percent higher than in 2018, according to Nielsen data.

“Live PD” was A&E’s most-watched program until last month amid the cultural shift that has taken place ever since Floyd was killed by a Minneapolis police officer. Paramount Television similarly canceled the long-running reality show “Cops.”

“Out of respect for the families of George Floyd and others who have lost their lives, in consultation with the departments we follow, and in consideration for the safety of all involved, we have made the decision not to broadcast ‘Live PD’ this weekend,” A&E said at the time.

What a monumentally bad decision.

This is going to happen to professional sports.

You can already see it happening.
