The ratings for Duck Dynasty are down 40% from a year ago, but it can’t be blamed on Phil Robertson‘s homophobic and racist comments. Ratings were sliding before Robertson’s infamous GQ profile.

- CBS is staging a "Go On »
Go On standout Sarah Baker is joining her NBC co-star Matthew Perry in his new pilot, the multi-camera CBS comedy The Odd Couple, a take on the Neil Simon’s classic. Co-written and executive produced by Perry, Odd Couple centers on two mismatched roommates — the messy Oscar Madison (Perry) and neat freak Felix Unger. Baker will play Oscar’s assistant Sam, who spends most of her work day on the phone apologizing to assorted high-and-mighty people who have been offended by Oscar’s latest rant. I hear the part was written for Baker, which was Perry’s idea based on the comedic chemistry the two had on Go On. Written by Perry and Frasier veteran Joe Keenan, The Odd Couple pilot hails from CBS TV Studios and studio-based Timberman-Beverly and The Tannenbaum Co. Baker, repped by Pakula/King & Associates and 3 Arts, will next been seen opposite Reese Witherspoon in The Good Lie »
