Did you see that the -- And what do you think about what was your take haven't come across that you really fit in with bearded group from -- Monroe. And build duck calls for eleven. And a -- -- whole family follows some pretty zany characters very popular show although it's it's it's it's waning very rapidly. Understand now that there's about four million less viewers now than in its heyday in. Lot of people attribute that to the fact of some pretty controversial comments that the patriarch Phil Robertson made with regard to race and and gender and sexuality that time I distinctive you know those shows I mean there and their comets they come and go pretty quickly. They don't have the staying power to be around for 1015202530. Years it is common go then people sales while -- in the you know it goes away. To their credit the Robertson family is really milk it for everything it's worth I mean you can only escape. Duck commander in -- commander in -- dynasty. Adam memorabilia and merchandise. In pain means in. I'm sure -- -- call businesses. Literally through the roof now they've they've worked hard attic. And I guess in a kind of fit in what today's. TV viewers are looking for but again its its temporarily and its going to be declining very rapidly from beyond -- how much more now do you hear about small people look now.

Also we have -- open phone lines for you to 601878668890870. On. What I'd like to getting your thoughts on his appearance I mean the motivation. In on his time is pretty valuable as pretty well split in fact it's not just here in the state Louisiana. It is time is is vied for its nationwide he's hit the road again and it's hard to pinpoint exactly. How much time he spends in state not a statement. I would say approximately. And depending on when you start the time period when you ended because it's constantly changing. He spends about 13 of his whole time in office as governor. On the road out of state but two thirds of it here in Louisiana. And he accomplished this without leaving mistake does this to show against the state in Monroe up there at the -- dynasty headquarters but how come across to be -- and do you think it helped team. You think it helps the state of Louisiana that the governor of prostate. Goes on national television. In associated with a crew like -- honesty muses this is audience. Is this gonna benefit our state -- will that maybe. Benefit his personal political opportunities I don't think he's officially said he's running for an evening that. I gotta believe he's got -- higher political ambitions in mind and Washington. -- do you think it hurt his chances of that. National political office or did it hurt or help. And also what are the big contribution to the show him in a declining viewership I mean they have. Our August is only so many things you can do with a bunch a guys talking about may conduct calls. In getting in situations that most comedies if you go back. -- to the very early days of all of the families in. Sanford and so on in Chico and the Man in the even far back -- our honeymoon seasonal sitcoms. It's kind of a lot of the same stories -- -- get repeated over and over again but the Carrick does. The environment in means that dates change but basically -- that conflicts in the controversies. Which really aren't all that be remain the same -- you think about 260. 187 ER 866889087. And as we speak detects the rule union and you do candidates seventy -- will be back to -- some of those with it but first this break -- listening to the think tank I'm -- -- Good Friday afternoon from the -- 870 WW. And welcome back into the think tank we're talking about the governor's appearance on that. Program dot dynasty in inviting you to text and phone call sign asking some questions. Does this benefit Louisiana and -- -- to a benefit his personal political opportunity on ambitions does that hurt or help chances for a national political office which apparently. He's seeking but he says he's not meant EC hasn't made a commitment but he spends about a third of the time in office on the road out of state speaking engagements and talking across the country in what do you think that actually is more beneficial than being here in Louisiana -- -- as a matter. -- personal opinion but he went on -- dynasty a controversial yet very very popular show but it's. Losing his popularity it's down about four million viewers and falling in. Most of the show's run their course and the the American viewing public as ago. Little attention span for a long lasting programs and this one is about ready to run its course and anyway before when he got on -- -- in a lot of people criticizing effected that he went on the show but you know a lot of people. Criticized from the other side. You know the President Obama going on shows like was it Jimmy Kimmel and Jon Stewart in David -- Letterman is some of these typical softball program. But that's been gone after their audience and against. Governor Jindal figured that this was probably his audience what do you think. -- -- get some of the text remember it's 87870. And now when you're texting now please remember to keep it brief if you wanna put your name on that's fine if government -- remain anonymous that's okay too. But please text responsibly don't do it while you're driving. Ideally go here's one that says Saddam the show is an embarrassment. And so was Bob before using it for his presidential run. Another one says very few TV programs of any kind last more than ten years naturally correct I guess. The show that I do on Saturday mornings as a -- Will be celebrating my 25 consecutive year. Broadcast at the end of this July so that's an eternity in broadcast media. I'd Isabella I hope the governor shares same values as the Robin son nexus Robertson family not a political stunt. -- some people would be happy if he did some people would not be is another -- says I think it's so pretty says. That the government does not have time to appear on radio shows to discuss important things. But he has time to go on television she again remind you when you tune in and I'm in mid sentence remember that we read these -- and me amendment be my personal opinion. Another says I huge which -- I think it is given birth name. Was embarrassing. He doesn't care one bit about wheezing and apparently. And another says. -- dynasty is a great source of entertainment there's very few good shows on these days religion politics should not matter I love the show. Our governor was okay. Probably political but who cares and well a lot of fun shall in -- personally. I don't but you know that's me. Certainly in the minority Q given the amount of audience success that the program group. I is another -- TV stations like reality TV program because they are inexpensive to produce they don't care if they shortly. And yet another Owens says the benefits only I use Jindal. Analyst says Louisiana is generally helped by reality TV programs that aren't based in Louisiana. Well on -- one thing that it has done it certainly probably contributed to on tourism people. Communists the alligators that they've seen onslaught people who hopefully meet some of these -- characters that the EC. On these reality shows and again I mean are you more news there is no such thing. As a reality TV shadow may be a reality home movie where cameras turned on and you run it back in DC but. You know all these shows a survivor and Macon and afraid Miller business camera people there there's microphones -- a lot of stuff going on that you don't see behind the scenes and in many many album. The stuff is not just off the cup as a lot of scripting that goes into open pay like one of the text the sentiment you hit the nail on the head sheet. It is a great source of -- detainment. Not information so much treatment. I'm 2601878668890870. A look at terror. Pretty opinion poll we were gonna have this change in the second the wanna get back to the original question. We talked started off the program with discussing the fracking in saint Tammany interest determined. To be non hazardous should be community have the right to -- it. And 65% of our respondents today.

Personal comments another one says that he was on the show for a short amount of time to give an award for family business in Louisiana. I saw and his supporting state and and the business and certainly one way to look at it. And other attacks says I don't think Bobby Jindal as by anything other than Bobby Jindal career. Another attack says you much why you must watch CBS because I don't recognize any shows you mention I do love -- dynasty though there hilarious and it's from the parish girl. Another says I agree reality TV programs are comets you know the perfect example of ten seconds of fame. Another is the question saying talk about why Jindal is never on your radio station like uncle and Foster more. I cannot expound on that I don't know he's not because he hasn't been invited as numerous times on a variety of issues. -- can tell you this we did have governors block on Foster quite regularly. And we had him on to the point where we had to stop his rapid fire -- delivery. When he was campaigning. But when he took office I don't know maybe something maybe the phones don't work real well up in the governor's mansion I don't know which had an answer that question but I do.
