I just wouldn't draw too many sociopolitical conclusions based on TV ratings.
I disagree. Do you remember Ozzie and Harriet? I thought that was the dumbest show on TV. Two people with their two boys doing nothing. But today it would be rare.
Then there was Father Knows Best. At least it had a lesson. Ozzie wasn't that smart. But the title was too paternalistic.
Then we got Andy Griffith. Wildly successful show just before cable. American values. Small town America.
DD is connecting with a niche.
