    Default Uh oh! LGBTQ Ratings Flop (Rejection by Americans of LGBTQ Propoganda)

    The miniseries "When We Rise" (centralized on two gay men and other LGBTQ issues) featured on ABC which received abundant advertising during the Oscars has apparently flopped - it tanked from the first episode: From Deadline: "It was a noble effort, but viewers largely shunned it, with the opening two hours averaging a paltry 0.7 in 18-49 and 3 million viewers coming off the strong Bachelor lead-in." “When We Rise was the lowest-rated program on the Big 4 [CBS, NBC, ABC, FOX] and second lowest-rated overall last night, matching the CW’s Supergirl (0.7, even with last week). The CW’s Jane The Virgin (0.3) was off by a tenth

    From Lifesitenews: "The homosexual magazine [The Advocate] was reduced to urging its readers to start watching When We Rise, as well as Oscar Best Picture-winning movie, Moonlight, which features a young “gay” black man “coming out” and a homosexual relationship. As Forbes reported, Moonlight “is among the lowest-grossing Oscar Best Picture winners ever.”

    My comment on this is: I believe, that because God lives in all of us, God, graciously gives mankind a certain level of a sense of discernment - whether we are religious or non- religious. (Whether we accept this discernment or not, is up to us).

    I believe that most humans can sense (even without religious teaching) that homosexuality is "not normal". It absolutely goes against nature - a nature that is visible to most. It goes against life itself in that it produces no offspring on its own. One normally senses "something is off here" - something "isn't right about this".

    Final comment on this: "the propaganda doesn't seem to be working".

    I stand at the risk of being prejudice here, but figure how could I be, if I am part English myself?

    Brits, on the whole, have always seemed fascinated with the bizarre and unusual - they normally are fascinated to a point of viewing or watching it - not normally to the point of living it or believing in it.

    I had to Google that. No argument here, but if we're going with non-natural redheads I'll go with Gillian Anderson.

    She used to be beautiful. Now she looks horrible. Not sure what life has thrown at her to see her fall physically so much, so quickly.

    A more interesting thread would have been youtube is now censoring gay videos. That had many people upset yesterday.

    Clearly the Lord has punished her for all those years of promotin' the gay agenda.

    From the Life's Little Ironies Department, Queer as Folk was set in Pittsburgh in what is a real strip of gay bars along Liberty Avenue downtown but instead of a read light district with transsexual prostitutes and porn shops it was a very hipster-y and cool place. But since the show has been canceled that strip of Liberty Avenue has now become a very hipster-y and cool place.

    What about Will and Grace? Did that flop too?

    The more important part of the equation is that I have a neighbor who looks just like her. Who is unusually fond of your boy.

    This is ****ing stupid. How many shows about heterosexual couples fail every year? Is that a rejection of straight people?

    I haven't seen the series, myself. I went to IMDB to check it out. It seems like it was not set up to succeed. A gritty docu-drama about LBGTQ, following the totally superficial "Bachelor"?? Where's the audience connection in that?

    The show itself covers well-worn ground, too. The reality of 1970's-1980's San Francisco Gay community was much better than a fictionalized story. What made "Will and Grace" and makes "Modern Family" so appealing is its connection to ordinary people, not necessarily part of the core Gay lifestyle location.

    Bad ratings? Maybe just a bad show in the wrong place in the schedule.

    "Star Trek" did poorly in its first seasons. Did that mean Americans are opposed to Science Fiction?
    Yup all three of them, then it was cancelled.

    Yeah, I get that. What I'm asking you is, what exactly do you think Disney is corrupting with this live-action remake of their 1991 film?
