First off, the linked Video Channel has “strong language” in it at times and adult themes. He means it with his “not for kids” disclaimer up front. You do not need to watch it, I’m just putting it here as record of where the data came from. “His source”.
For those with fortitude (and a decent beer, wine, or booze supply ;-) it is well worth watching his stuff. Better the more you consume, so there’s that…
The basic story is that there’s some new show expected to do well. Good numbers in show #1. “Falcon and Winter Soldier”. Classic White Guy/ Black Guy duo kind of thing that’s worked well before. “Overlord DVD” has a very campy kind of shtick with retro-movie costume and funky DIY Halloween Head Mask thing… but it kind of works somehow. He does know his shows and does seem to have accumulated some insider sources (given what I’ve seen proved out in other of his episodes).
Here’s his take on this Disney property:
Ratings plunged for the second episode of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier dramatically according to a source, and this ratings disaster seems to be a direct response to wokeness. Here is what I was told. #disneyplus #marvel #falconandwintersoldier

In the video he sites an interesting metric. TOTS Tune Out Time Stamp. When your video feed drops, they note the time stamp. Folks watching to end credits? Good show. Folks dropping early? Issues.
Well, it seems that 79% to 80% of the viewers all dropped in a minute or two of each other. Absolutely unheard of. (His quoted number is 79.9% dropped) Over the next several days, the TOTS rose to 83.49%. So they managed to keep about 16% of their original audience numbers. The WOKEerati only.
What happened at that minute? BLM Like Woke Scene. BIG “Get Woke, Go Broke!”. The scene was the two guys about to “pull their guns on a black man arguing with a white”. Yeah, the whole cops murdering blacks line ( I think. I’ve not seen it; only interpreting the video) despite most black murders being by other blacks. (As most folks only murder folks they know and interact with so it tends to be in the same community.)
Will they be able to “fix it” and repair the show? I doubt it. They had their shot at a new audience. Folks are now going to “stay away in droves”. Why come back for a second sip of the poison when the first one was bitter and turned your stomach?
But from my POV, it’s a delightful metric and a nice tool in the old cabinet. We know that a HUGE majority have “had enough”. We also know that as soon as the Woke Crap is in your grill from the TV set, just hit EXIT and send a loud and clear message… Don’t sit through it for the rest of the show. Just drop it right then. IF you want to watch the rest, come back the next day and replay it starting about 3 to 5 minutes after that time stamp… Rinse and repeat.
That is an unqualified DISASTER for Disney and Wokeness.
So take heart in the knowing that 4/5 of the people are on your side, and only 16% are willing to Swallow The Woke. (And even less of them are the actually Woke… I’d peg it about 5% max.)
I’m also really happy to now know that I can “send a message” just with the EXIT button. I’ll be using that a LOT more.
