Why Are American Pickers’ Ratings Plummeting?

The series has always aired at 9:00 p.m. ET on the History Channel. But, the network failed to warn fans and moved to the 8:00 p.m. ET timeslot.

  1. I would rather think of solutions to the current ratings trend. The changes could include Mr. Fritz. The correct adjustments would revitalize a T. V. must watch. Get the right minds together and fix it.
