A&E Ratings Tank Since Removing Live PD In Response to BLM Riots

The A&E Channel removed the hit show Live PD from its lineup to soothe the angry mob in response to the Black Lives Matter protests.  Since cancelling the show, the network has seen a 49% drop in its viewership.  The network announced it was cancelling the show on June 10th.  Ratings have tanked since the show was taken off the air.

The Neilsen Company’s ratings showed a 49% drop in viewership between June 11 and July 18 of this year.

Hosted by Dan Abrams with analysis from Tom Morris Jr. and Sgt. Sean “Sticks” Larkin, “Live PD” is a documentary series that showcases the policing of America, following police departments from across the country in real-time as they patrol their communities.

Over 3.7 million people follow Live PD on their Facebook page that now shows a message that reads, “We stand against racism. We stand for equality. We stand with our viewers, employees, partners and the entire black community.  We stand united for a better, more than just tomorrow.
