^ This.
The Police Department did not need it. What good would it do to have it available for a leak or someone being offered coin for it.

I know one thing, Dan Abrams is sad about it getting canceled. The guy is a uber liberal but has made close to 10 mil to date off of it.

Good. Now somebody needs to pick up Live PD. Is that contractually possible?

Well, thatís not exactly true.

First off, A&E is a joint venture between Disney and Hearst so they can take the hit. Secondly, while the Live PD programs brought in $292 million last year, A&E isnít suddenly receiving zero ad revenues because they pulled the show.

On top of that, all ad revenues are down this year due to constant repeats and it sucks for all of us whose income is derived from ad dollars.

It looks like itís possible but I wouldnít say itís likely. If Viacom/CBS and Disney are out, Iíd be surprised if NBC/Universal picks it up and puts it on Bravo or the Peacock. Fox doesnít own any type of reality TV network.

The fallout for the reality TV patrol-car genre also snagged ViacomCBS, whose Paramount Network canceled the long-running Cops on June 9. The conglomerate also cut ties with Live PD producer Big Fish, which produced VH1's Love & Hip Hop and Black Ink Crew franchises. ViacomCBS sources suggest that backlash over Big Fish destroying unaired Live PD footage showing the 2019 killing of Javier Ambler in Austin, Texas, was part of the reason for severing ties.

ok, so the figures are off. but what about next quarter? and the quarter after that? its still going to amount to hundreds of millions. Disney can afford to take hits, sure, but for how long? Their revenues are drying up pretty quick and they've done this over and over, doubling down with social justice stupidity.

The number lost will not be in the hundreds of millions and they will replace the programming.

Disney is worth more than $200 billion dollars so they can take a $150 million dollar revenue hit.
