Anonymous asked: HI! So are RIB finally listening to fans and giving them what they want...A drama-free Brittana in NYC?! The writers have been treating Brittana fans badly for four-and-half seasons even though no one wants either of them with anyone else.
ok this is how it goes anon. Right now RIB and FOX have one goal and that is selling the show in syndication. The ratings are very low right now, most especially in the 18/45 demo. They are not stupid and since 6 is the last season they must make a huge effort to get some of the older fans interested in watching again. The way to do that is to stop pissing off fans by giving them nonsense and ships and storylines that ppl hate. Ryan no longer has the luxury of doing what he wants just to rile the fandoms. The real money is in syndication deals. If they want affiliates to buy the rights to episodes they have to show them that fans will watch. It’s as simple as that. So yes they are listening to fans which they know now they should have done much earlier. So season 6 and it’s reception is crucial. Money talks and bullshit walks. Brittana is very much beloved as 100 and 101 has proven. AND THAT’S THE WAY IT IS.
I am rebloging this ask from yesterday for those of you who rightfully think Ryan is trolling like a biotch. I know it’s hard to believe but this time he is not because this time unlike other times he has too much to lose: AKA MONEY IN HIS POCKET. He is not doing it out of the kindness of his heart but because RIB and especially FOX need to get syndication deals. If he gives the fans what they want ppl will watch. It’s pure economics and therefore this time he is telling the truth.
