AND THE OSCAR FOR THE WORST EVER TV RATINGS ACADEMY AWARD SHOW GOES TO …
According to the The Hollywood Reporter, the 2018 Oscar TV ratings fell to an all-time low. Hosted by the smug and self-righteous Jimmy Kimmel, the Academy Award telecast dropped 19% from 2017. But what did anyone expect? Hollywood produced less than stellar movies and a bunch of individuals who live in glass house preaching to us. The American public has grown weary of the liberal political rallies that masquerade as an award show.
These are the people who have looked the other way as members in their ivory tower community have sexually exploited, assaulted and raped. They now jump on the “#me too” bandwagon and look to throw accusations at anyone and justify that rape and a casual comment is the same. The cesspool of Hollywood is imploding and these individuals still look to point the fingers at others. Keep it Hollywood, there is always next year and your ratings can go even lower.
The telecast stumbles an unfortunate 19 percent from 2017.
A comparatively uneventful Oscar telecast led the way on TV Sunday night — though updated numbers have the telecast somewhat predictably stumbling to an all-time low.
The kudocast, nearly four hours long, stumbled 19 percent from the previous year to 26.5 million viewers. That’s easily the least-watched Oscars in history, trailing 2008 by more than 5 million. Overnight returns had the lengthy ABC broadcast averaging a 18.9 rating among households between 8 and 11 p.m. ET. Compared to the same stat for 2017, the night the wrong best picture winner was named, that was down a more modest 16 percent.
Last year’s Academy Awards, which earned a 22.4 overnight rating, ultimately fetched 32.9 million viewers for ABC, as well as a handsome 9.1 rating among adults 18-49. Still, those numbers reflected the second-lowest in Academy history. (ABC did not immediately report the adults 18-49 rating for Sunday’s Oscars, and Nielsen won’t widely distribute that information until Tuesday.)
Flashback … remember in 2003 when Hollywood gave convicted child rapist Roman Polanki Best Director and all the stars stood and cheered, including Meryl Streep. I think that is all we need to know about the hypocrites in Hollywood.
