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.
Oprah Winfrey Will Run for President if God Tells her Too … Does Joy Behar think Oprah Has Mental Illness Too?
HEY JOY BEHAR, DOES OPRAH HAVE MENTAL ILLNESS TOO?
Even though Oprah Winfrey has previously stated that she was not going to run for president in 2020, she appears to still be milking the tease. Oprah had stated she was not going to run as politics was not in her spirit or DNA. But now in a People Magazine interview Oprah said the following regarding a possible run, “God, if you think I’m supposed to run, you gotta tell me, and it has to be so clear that not even I can miss it.”
IS BEHAR A HYPOCRITE? SEEMS THAT OPRAH TALKS TO GOD ALSO AND HE RESPONDS.
There’s only one thing that could make Oprah Winfrey run for president in 2020.
Amid calls for her to consider a run for the White House — from fans as well as her closest friends — “I went into prayer,” she tells PEOPLE in the magazine’s new cover story. “ ‘God, if you think I’m supposed to run, you gotta tell me, and it has to be so clear that not even I can miss it.’ And I haven’t gotten that.”
The media mogul and star of the new movie A Wrinkle in Time found herself in the political spotlight after her inspiring speech at the 2018 Golden Globes while accepting the Cecil B. DeMille Award. Winfrey had the crowd of Hollywood’s biggest stars on their feet and in tears with her moving words and promise that “a new day is dawning.” She was surprised to hear the immediate response the rest of the country had.
The real question is does The View’s Joy Behar think that Oprah has a mental disease also? Isn’t it the LEFT to preaches liberal tolerance? Everything of course except Conservative Christians. But what about liberal Christians? Just yet another liberal double standard.
And Yet Another … Eight Women Accused Charlie Rose of Sexually Harassment (Update: Rose Suspended from CBS & PBS)
UBER LIB CHARLIE ROSE ACCUSED OF SEXUAL HARASSMENT …
Sorry Charlie, you have been accused of serial sexual harassment. From the WAPO comes the following, eight woman have accused longtime liberal TV host Charlie Rose of sexual harassment. The women claim that Rose made unwanted sexual advances toward them, including lewd phone calls, walking around naked in their presence, or groping their breasts, buttocks or genital areas. SICK!!! Of the eight women, five of the women spoke on the condition of anonymity, three were on the record and two of the women the Post interviewed, Kyle Godfrey-Ryan and Megan Creydt, confirmed their accounts to NBC News. This was a serial harassment that took place from the late 1990s to as recently as 2011. Who doesn’t think that every news outlet Charlie Rose worked at did not know of his behavior and turned a blind eye? CBS addressed the suspension of Charlie Rose over sexual harassment allegations and claims, ‘We Are All Rocked By This.’ Sorry is I have to cry BS here. They are rocked because it because public, there is no way this was not public knowledge.
Eight women have told The Washington Post that longtime television host Charlie Rose made unwanted sexual advances toward them, including lewd phone calls, walking around naked in their presence, or groping their breasts, buttocks or genital areas.
The women were employees or aspired to work for Rose at the “Charlie Rose” show from the late 1990s to as recently as 2011. They ranged in age from 21 to 37 at the time of the alleged encounters. Rose, 75, whose show airs on PBS and Bloomberg TV, also co-hosts “CBS This Morning” and is a contributing correspondent for “60 Minutes.”
There are striking commonalities in the accounts of the women, each of whom described their interactions with Rose in multiple interviews with The Post. For all of the women, reporters interviewed friends, colleagues or family members who said the women had confided in them about aspects of the incidents. Three of the eight spoke on the record.
Five of the women spoke on the condition of anonymity out of fear of Rose’s stature in the industry, his power over their careers or what they described as his volatile temper.
So now Rose is embarrassed by his behavior and apologizes? Really? Isn’t he just feeling this way because he was caught?
Charlie Rose is the latest public figure to be felled by sexual misconduct allegations, with PBS halting distribution of his nightly interview show and CBS News suspending him Monday following a Washington Post report with the accusations of eight women.
The women, who all worked for Rose or tried to work for him, accused the veteran newsman of groping them, walking naked in front of them and telling one that he dreamed about her swimming nude.
Rose, 75, said in a statement that he was “deeply embarrassed” and apologized for his behavior.
“PBS was shocked to learn today of these deeply disturbing allegations,” the public broadcasting service said in a statement. “We are immediately suspending distribution of ‘Charlie Rose.’”
Are you kidding, only now Rose realizes that walking around nude, groping women and inappropriate comments are not acceptable behavior? Sorry Charlie, you don’t get a free pass like you should not have known better. Powerline calls Rose’s behavior like about an eight on the 1 to 10 Weinstein Scale. So far, let’s wait until more women and stories are revealed. This sounds like only the tip of the iceberg.
“It is essential that these women know I hear them and that I deeply apologize for my inappropriate behavior. I am greatly embarrassed. I have behaved insensitively at times, and I accept responsibility for that, though I do not believe that all of these allegations are accurate. I always felt that I was pursuing shared feelings, even though I now realize I was mistaken.
“I have learned a great deal as a result of these events, and I hope others will too. All of us, including me, are coming to a newer and deeper recognition of the pain caused by conduct in the past, and have come to a profound new respect for women and their lives.”
Rose said that he has behaved insensitively at times “and I accept responsibility for that, though I do not believe that all of these allegations are accurate. I always felt that I was pursuing shared feelings, even though I now realize I was mistaken. I have learned a great deal as a result of these events, and I hope others will, too.”
If any more come out, which they will … Charlie Rose’s career looks to be finished.
ITS ONLY JUST BEGUN …
According to Nielsen ratings, the NFL is down 11% this year as compared to 2016. After this past weekends despicable actions by NFL players and owners alike, look for the TV ratings to slide even more. The fans are pissed at the disrespectful actions of the NFL and their disrespect the the U.S. flag, the National Anthem and to the men and women who have died protecting our liberties and freedoms. Look for the ratings to go down much further as We the People teach the NFL a valuable lesson in patriotism, freedom and respect. One has to wonder what the NFL is thinking in attacking their fan base and some how stating they are unified. Unified against what exactly, the very people who buy their merchandise, pay for tickets and watch the games? DirecTV has experienced a wave of cancellations amid the NFL National Anthem protects. Keep it up NFL, you better figure out who butters your bread and why. Americans have other things they can do on Sundays than deal with you disrespectful malcontents.
Through three weeks, viewership for national telecasts of NFL games is down 11 percent this season compared to 2016, the Nielsen company said on Tuesday.
Nielsen said the games averaged 17.63 million viewers for the first three weeks of last season, and have dipped to 15.65 million this year. The Nielsen figures don’t include many of the Sunday afternoon games that are shown to a regional audience, but not a national one.
The NFL ratings are in focus because of President Donald Trump’s suggestion that viewers are turned off by a protest against police brutality that began with quarterback Colin Kaepernick refusing to stand for the national anthem. The protests spread rapidly this past weekend following the president’s criticism of people involved.
Next week’s ratings will be even more closely watched, since conservative groups and Fox News Channel’s Sean Hannity have called for people angered by the protests to boycott this weekend’s games.
