Boondock loses two-thirds of client list during hiatus

E&P is reporting that only about 1/3 of Aaron McGruder’s client list is running the re-runs for Boondock.

“Boondocks” clients not using the reruns are replacing McGruder’s feature with various comics. For instance, the Lansing (Mich.) State Journal picked “Candorville” by Darrin Bell of the Washington Post Writers Group, while The Ithaca (N.Y.) Journal and Fayettville-based Northwest Arkansas Times each chose “Non Sequitur” by Wiley Miller of Universal.

It will be interesting to see how many papers decide not to pick up Boondocks again in the fall.

I’m no math wiz, but if only 1/3 of newspapers are running the Boondocks repeats, doesn’t that mean that he lost 2/3 of his client papers?

I’m no meteorolgist, but it being December 4th and all, aren’t we past the fall? I’ll give him to January 1st, but even *I* (being a latecomer) after today can tell we’ve looped a bit. How many times can the Freemans move into that frickin’ neighborhood? I hope the TV show worked out for him.
