NBC's Playboy "Bunnies" Stumble Toward Extinction

NBC's Playboy Club is all but extinct. While some in the industry are trying to resuscitate it with their published words, America has said "No".

I think it will be gone in a couple of weeks.

The ratings are continuing to fall and now 7 advertisers have pulled out.

You should know which advertisers have pulled out and who has committed to stay the course, and why.

Faith and Freedom has commissioned a statewide survey asking if Washingtonians support legalizing homosexual "marriage". We will be releasing the results next week. Watch for them.

Many of our readers signed our petition, joining millions of others across the country, asking NBC to pull its program, "The Playboy Club." NBC refused to listen to the people. Now they are paying the price.

Ratings dropped another 19% this week and now advertisers are pulling out.

These companies have pulled out: Kraft, Sprint, Lenovo, UPS Store, Subway, P.F. Chang and Campbell's Soup.

Chrysler is staying in, explaining they want to share their product with the most diverse audience possible.

Memo to Chrysler: There is no audience.

ABC's "Dancing With The Stars" had 16 million viewers with a 3.3 ranking which is its lowest rated performance show to date.

The entertainment industry continues to prop them up reporting they beat other network shows, but most often have failed to mention that many of the other shows they beat were re-runs. Their ratings are considerably below previous years.

The media's commitment to the homosexual agenda runs deep, but it seems sad to me that the media seeks only to exploit Chaz Bono and his gender confusion, when perhaps they could be of some help.

Attempting to normalize gender confusion is costing the network both viewers and money.

Gender dysphoria is a serious issue for individuals. Rather than trying to cram a message down the throats of Americans and lose millions of advertising dollars in the process, perhaps ABC and Chaz would be better served if the network reached out to help Chaz and others who suffer from gender confusion.

Just a thought.

Be Vigilant. Be Discerning. Be Prayerful. Be Informed. Be Blessed.

  1. Sigh, yet more of Gary's issues with honesty.

    Playboy Club is a ratings bomb, but it was also roundly panned by critics, so the only "some in the industry" trying to resuscitate it are NBC PR flacks, probably why Gary uses the ever popular with "some" rather than citing examples.

    While DWTS ratings are somewhat down, they won their time period. And contra Gary, not a single one of the shows it beat was a re-run, in fact several of them were season premieres!!

    Why isn't Gary demanding the industry quit forcing their social views on us with the family oriented, and very low rated Terra Nova? Why doesn't Gary just admit that he would have his knickers in a twist regardless of the ratings of DWTS, because they have nothing to do with his anti-trans bigotry, which is the real root of his displeasure.

    Finally, yes, gender dysphoria is a serious issue, and Chaz is receiving the treatment recommended by every major medical and psychological professional association - gender reassignment surgery.

  2. RE: Rather than trying to cram a message down the throats of Americans ... perhaps ABC and Chaz would be better served if the network reached out to help Chaz and others who suffer from gender confusion.

    I'm not buying this faux "Christian" compassion. If Gary really wanted to help transgendered individuals, he would listen to the experts on this issue and realize that Chaz is doing exactly what he should do.

    Gary, on the other hand, insists that transgendered individuals un-"confuse" themselves and that we shun and chastise those who do not – two things can do real and lasting harm to these individuals.

    With your negative pre-conceived notions about transgendered people, and your insistence that God is backing you up, you are offering a diagnosis before you even do an examination.

    They are helping! They're helping remove the stigma that Gary and his ilk are so determined to create. Helping tear down false perceptions is the best thing the tv network could be doing for these individuals.
