Bill Donohue comments on “The Real O’Neals”:

“The Real O’Neals” draws fewer viewers on Tuesday nights during prime time than any other show on ABC. Here’s the proof.

  • 8:00 “The Middle” draws 6.16 million viewers
  • 8:30 “American Housewife” draws 5.24 million
  • 9:00  “Fresh Off the Boat” draws 4.26 million
  • 9:30  “The Real O’Neals” draws 3.56 million
  • 10:00 “David Blaine: Beyond Magic” draws 5.13 million

In other words, 700,000 viewers who watched “Fresh Off the Boat” either turned off the TV or turned to another channel when the “O’Neals” came on. Yet when the “O’Neals” went off the air, more than 1.5 million viewers turned on ABC.

The “O’Neals” is crashing not simply because of poorly written scripts, but because there is less tolerance for Catholic bashing in the general population than there is at Disney/ABC.

It’s just a matter of time until this Dan Savage-inspired show is finally cancelled.
