When we peeked at CMT’s Facebook page, we saw plenty of negative comments about “PDS” from Dukes of Hazzard fans – and then we saw negative comments from “Reba” fans!
The Reba fan who best summed up the problem of “Party Down South” commercials was Mike Zinke, who posted:
“It is 5:52 in the evening here in northern Michigan, I’m watching Reba and the trash commercial for Party Down South plays over and over. Mind you I have my 7 and 5 year old daughters watching with me. So it is not just during the Dukes. CMT seems to refuse to address how they justify having family friendly shows with trashy commercials on. Now thanks to CMT my little girls know what boobs can do to boys.”
A Dukes of Hazzard fan, Kristopher Gardner, posted a concise, but similar complaint: “My kids love dukes but I refuse to let them watch them on CMT because of the trashy commercials.”
And there are many more complaints where these came from, peppered on CMT’s “The Dukes Ride Again” Facebook page, as well as the main CMT Facebook page. Will any of it make a difference? We don’t know. But we’re glad to see that Dukes fans are not alone in their displeasure.
