The Oscars’ TV ratings just reached a new low

Hollywood celebrities gathered last night to present each other with awards.

The 90th Annual Oscars was filled with anti-Trump hate and jabs at Vice President Mike Pence.

But the early numbers are in and the celebrities’ sanctimonious moral preening blew up in their face.

Variety reports:

Live viewership of the 90th annual Academy Awards ceremony was down significantly from the 2017 telecast, according to preliminary Nielsen ratings for ABC’s nearly four-hour telecast.

The 8 p.m.-11 p.m. portion of ABC’s telecast averaged an 18.9 household rating and 32 share in Nielsen’s metered market overnight ratings, which cover about 70% of U.S. TV households. That’s down about 16% from the 22.5/37 rating generated by the 2017 Oscars.

As Patriot Pulse reported, movie theater attendance hit a 24-year low in 2017.

This is the bread-and-butter of the movie industry as box office revenue is the largest income driver for Hollywood.

But in just another way that shows how out-of-touch Hollywood is, none of the last 15 best-picture winners were the highest-grossing films the year they one.

And most of them failed to crack $100 million – which goes to show that the Academy is more willing to hand out awards to movies that make political statements.

It’s no surprise the Oscars ratings are dropping like a rock.

The Academy brought back left-wing shill Jimmy Kimmel as the host after he bombed in 2017 by going on an anti-Trump tirade throughout the show.
