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.

    In the last ten years, to the best of my recollection, I’ve seen 4, maybe 5 movies; The 15:17 to Paris, American Sniper, & Gran Torino. You get the idea. I have not paid any attention to hollyweird in longer than that.

  2. deerflyguy says:

    The Oscars were good back in the post WWII days when all the old time patriotic actors returned from the war, in which many of them fought. They remained watchable until all those old actors died off and were replaced with these liberal zeros we have now! That’s the real problem that Hollywood has – no patriots left anymore! Just liberal, communists that think they know what’s best for America! If only they would look into their own past and see what the answer to real success is, they would answer their own questions. America loves its patriots! America sticks by them! These losers in Hollywood today are piss poor examples of evolution and proof positive that man did screw apes!

    I hope these dirt bags will leave this country as they said. Kimmel is a real a- hole!!

    • Beverly Petrovic says:

      So true tc. i hope they take the awards off the air and Kimmel too. So horrible to talk politics on an emmy awards show??

      • Jim says:

        I object to your calling the Holly Weirdos
        a…. holes. Anuses are useful if inelegant. I prefer calling them Hemorrhoids, of no use to anyone, but a real pain in the hiny

  4. tc says:

    I agree! Hope these dirt bag’s leave the country as they said. Kimmel is a real asshole.!

  5. ernaldo says:

    The oscars turned a traitor and pervert exhibition years ago, and Juck you, Fimmy!

    • James F M Baur Jr says:

      That is a unique, and true, statement. How perceptive of you. My sentiments, exactly, and then some. Thanks for the good laugh.

  6. GCKII says:

    ….Watch the NBA, now they are headed the same way as the NFL and it seems there are payoffs going on in MLB and possibly college sports and most came about in the Obama years!!! The only sports I watch anymore are some college and high school games…. Where will this end, God help us if things don’t get better and force the FBI, local law enforcement and Congress to do their jobs Honestly!!!

  7. Dr Don Malnati says:

    Hollyweird Hates America. NFL hates America. Please a bumper sticker – NFL Go To Hell. Hollyweird and the NFL can both Go To Hell.

    10 years ago TV & Football = Toast. In 10 yrs, I read 1,000 Books & met 100,000 Americans. Try it!

    • Carol says:

      Dr Don

      These shows are nothing but Circle Jerks: one month Meryl gives an award to a movie star. Next month Movie Star gives an award at the Grammies. Golden Globes. Emmys.

      Talk about global warming! The flatulence wafting ftom Hollyweird Sun Night warmed the North Pole up.

      These people look down their noses at We the People who made THEM RICH.

    10 years ago TV & Football = Toast. In that time I read 1,000 Books and met 100,000 Americans. Try it!

  9. Bill says:

    Maybe a 9.4 will hit tinsel town and Hollywood will all fall down.

  10. lenny g. says:

    I would now think these movie idiots may wise up now and just give out their hack awards on CNN, because no one will be watching the major network awards shows if these jerks keep bashing President Trump.

  11. Bob Hollinger says:

    They are nothing but brainless libturd Dumbacrap ape and monkey puppets for directors! They are less than nothing without directors to tell them what to do! Directors should be getting the awards instead of the nobodies!!

  12. You know it isn’t just the Movies that are going downhill with all the Liberal loving themselves actors telling us how to live. TV is starting to do the same. Some of my favorite shows now are taking potshots at the President and administration and frankly I am getting sick of it. I mute or fast-forward, but if it keeps up I am going to quit watching altogether! They need to learn where there bread is buttered and it isn’t from the millennials or the Liberals, it is from middle America Conservatives and we are getting fed up!!!!!!!

    • Carol says:

      And now our voices are being silenced on the web. Conservative/Patriot/Whistleblower channels are being removed by Twitter, Google, You Tube. TELL CONGRESS WE DEMAND AN INTERNET FREEDOM BILL OF RIGHTS!!!

  13. Kimmel, what a beady eyed putz!!!!

  14. David Atherton says:

    All of the entertainers think they are smarter than everyone else how many of them could even hold a real job working for hourly wages.

    • Jim says:

      The real question is how many could hold a real job, for real wages, without maiming them selves or others.

  15. Gordon Hanson says:

    As my dad commented years ago,” I don’t like to watch a bunch of whores and pimps celebrate each other” Now we would have to include transgender and pedophiles to cover the whole gamut of irritating people walking the red carpet in smug satisfaction of themselves.

    • Jim says:

      Tsk, tsk, tsk. How judgmental! Oh, wait a minute, my rose colored glasses just slipped, where did all these strange beings come from?

    • Carol says:

      I no longer have a tv, computer died but watch clips on YT. They did not disappoint me. Kimmel wasn’t funny even before the elections. And not surprisingly, PC Oscars to “Other” humans (their word not mine) from gay youths to Aliens: DIVERSITY!!! YEA!!! Or a broad hint from the ETs? What? No Reptilians?!

  16. Frank Norton says:

    Some 20 minutes was all that I could take. Liked the comment : “It was all mine!” I feel the same way regarding my feelings about politics and politicians. Regarding movies, I generally avoid movies that win an Oscar. Boring !

    • Jim says:

      All of the named “hosts” remind me of the 4th grader sitting in the back of the class room trying to impress the class with his wit, and usually embarrassing himself in the process.

  17. John D Hill says:

    I don’t watch Hollywood parade themselves around like they are so above the rest us deplorables. Al Franklin did a small percentage of what Jimmy Kimmel did in the past. Does anyone remember The Man Show he hosted. It was the most sexiest show ever on regular tv ,by far. Where is the outrage about this.

  18. STEVEN STAR says:

    The Oscars are not fun to watch anymore. Kimmel was boring, like a political professor on a podium. Tired of his disrespect to Trump, and sarcasm. Whether you like Trump or not he is the President, and showing the rest of the world Kimmel’s disrespect (i’ll include Fallon and Colbert) is getting very old and a turn OFF.
    This was probably one of the worst shows ever.
    The oscar’s has lost all it’s glamor, no great music, films or production. It became a political perch for activeists.

  19. Old Sarge says:

    One of the reasons I did not watch the Oscars is because Kimmel was hosting them. Been many years since I have watched the Oscars. I don’t even care who wins. I haven’t watched the Oscars since they started using them as another political platform. Not only has politics ruined The Oscars, it has ruined the Emmy’s, the Grammys, the Miss America Pageant and is taking its toll on Professional Sports. Their only job is to entertain. They are nothing more than puppets, so I really don’t care what they think about any issue. I would rather they would just sing, dance or act. Other than that I wish they would just shut up.

    I usually wait until a movie comes out in DVD. The cost to rent the movie along with the cost of providing your own snacks and drinks, in most cases, is less than the cost of a theater ticket. That way I get to watch it in the comforts of my home and I don’t have to pay those outrageous prices at the theater for a ticket along with the popcorn and drinks.

  20. Jean says:

    My “something else” has to do with a total lack of desire to watch an entertainment industry show that is political at all. I am interested in the art, the actor, the film…not their personal lives or views. Also…what a crock..Ryan Seacrest accused (so far) by 1 person treated like he had the plague…Kobe Bryant…with a proven “history” treated like a hero! What is wrong with these people. Just kind of sick of them and their “I deserve to be protected by guns but you don’t” and “We need to protect our illegals because we need the votes and they clean our toilets and work for us for slave wages.” Just saying…

  21. Bill says:

    Have you noticed how the liberal so called celebrities whose anti-gun, anti-Trump really anti everything, usually have armed body guards and most of their films have nothing but violence? That is why I have given up going to the movies and definitely don’t watch any of the award shows.

    • Moma says:

      When they take away guns of the armed body guards, maybe they will realize they are not safe either. The last movie I went to was ” The Passion of Christ”. Just looking at the advertisements make me sick. Most of the movies today are complete trash. Who cares about the actors. I quite buying People because they only had stories about these trash and whose bed they were jumping into and out of. If you wanted a real story about real people you were lucky if you found one at the back of the magazine and then i t was so short you didn’t get much information. They need to get a real life and a real job.

  22. Patti says:

    When these overpaid, uniformed useless assholes who think they are entertaining, well they aren’t! I gave up TV 10 years ago and I am very selective of what movies I do go to see. The masses in this country are talking but the libturds are not listening. I don’t feel one bit sorry for them. So adios to your meal ticket because we the people have spoken. Leave the country like you promised and see how much better that is for you idiots!! In the meantime, God Bless the USA, the American Flag and dearly beloved President DONALD TRUMP!!!!!!!!!!!!

  23. Joseph says:

    I agree with the comments above that the actors opinions should be kept to themselves as nobody cares what a bunch of fake people have to say about our nation and its politics. If they want to stand up for freaks, criminals and two-faced lying liberals fine, just don’t waste our time with it!

  24. Vincent Brady says:

    The Oscars and Academy Awards are really just a circle jerk! (can I say that?) Like the NFL, the actors are paid to act, football players are paid to play ball. I have no interest in their unsolicited political views that waste my precious entertainment time.

  25. Tom in Colo. says:

    I haven’t watched the Academy Awards for about 4 or 5 years because of all the southern California politics.
    As far as I’m concerned the hasn’t been a decent movie Hollywood has made for quite a few years.

  26. Susan Dix says:

    People are sick and tired of the Anti-Trump tirades!
    Most of these sickening idiots claimed they would leave when President Trump got
    elected. At least our POTUS is attempting to keep his promises.
    Maybe they can leave, when their rating go to zero, and nobody goes to their crap movies.

  27. Gary says:

    What do you expect from a bunch of CLASS F actors and actresses ??? Kimmel? whats that? Oh yeah a drooling lazy mouthy bag of gutter gas. This fool should have been left on the trash pile long ago. Come o hollywierd get some real AMERICANS on the show and ones that have some common sense about them. We The People do not need to hear all the dribble and bull crap from their mouths. We want to see and hear about REAL MOVIES not the trash that won this year. None of them deserved the awards or should have been nominated. WAKE UP before you lose your audience completely

  28. Zebra Dun says:

    Bad Movies show the Directors, Producers, screenwriters and Actors do a crappy job of presenting their product which is entertainment.
    Then virtue signalling and whining about politics from what basically is a bunch of clueless idiots untrained and ill educated who live their rich entitled fantasy filled lives behind gates, guards and Hollywood protection doing jobs of make believe and sanctimonious preaching about things they know nothing about. Expecting us the great unwashed to accept their standards, or what standards they may have telling us, the people who work real jobs and have real lives how to think, what to think and who to like and vote for.
    Prancing Primping and pimping primadonna’s, deviants, dopers and fools.
    I don’t watch their movies, even fewer TV shows (mostly from Canada since US entertainment is all political kabuki) and I for danged sure did not watch the Oscars.
    These bunch of moron’s think they matter, think they are so intelligent and so right it makes me want to spit and as a message to any reading this, “CLUE-BAT: If You and Hollywood are against it I am for it.”
    Shut up and act ya bunch of court Jesters that’s what we hire you for.
    As for Jimmy Kimmel? Shut up period, you can’t act, ya ain’t funny and your mouth shows you are a Moron every time you open it.

  29. DRLJR says:

    And I have not wasted my time watching the Oscars or the other award shows for years. They are not meaningful as all they are is grandstanding and attacks by the “Left” nowadays.

  30. DRLJR says:

    The last movie I went to see was “Brave”. The poll needed a “bad movies and anti-Trump” selection. The both go together. The qualities of movies has been going down hill for a long time due to the infection of “Leftwing” ideology. People go to movies to be entertained not lectured. And the same applies to the TV shows. For the most part the only decent shows to watch are from the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s. I do like “Last Man Standing”, it is funny and entertaining.

  31. Jeff says:

    I didn’t watch the STINKING OSCARS! Haven’t watched them in years. In reality there really isn’t anything worth going to the movies anymore.

    CRAP Movies every time you turn around. The Stinking lousy actors and other punks in hollyweird! Political Grandstanding at every turn. These Acting PUKES have lost my business forever.

    • Kaye corcoran says:

      They have NO product;
      They have Tremendous Pride, conceit, arrogance; spew unsolicited political opinions/ bias. They are negative people who highly disrespect their desired audience.
      Rich crybabies
      I consider disgusting; not entertaining. Who would pay for that? Or spend four hours listening to them make fun of most of us while they honor themselves?
      All hat no horse.

  32. Al W says:

    Some really great responses. I couldn’t have said it any better. When a Hollywood Lib opens their mouth with that kind of hatred and venom, I have no desire to ever watch anything they are part of, ever again. The comment about the NFL players is right on. Until the owner’s purge the league of all the player’s who took a knee; especially the second half of the season, I will never go to another game. My hope is that everyone who is a proud American , will never spend a dime, on another ticket, a jersey or a Hotdog ever again. As far as I am concerned, The NFL as we know it, is
    a thing of the past.

  33. Carl D says:

    Delusional actors think they think and talk for the masses. They work in a fantasy land and live in one also

    • william heard says:

      Maybe its time for them to get a prostate exam , for removal of their excess baggage ( like their heads ) .

  34. Jerry says:

    Acters and actresses are a bunch of ignorant over paid loosers.

  35. Rhondar says:

    the few times I go to the theater it’s mostly empty….the industry has got to be hurting

  36. Rhondar says:

    bad movies and bad politics
    that’s why I don’t watch

    • Jim says:

      As commented above, think that is why so many of our politicians are so enamored of Hollywood? Both are corrupt, and devoted to doing more of whatever does not work.

      • Cherie Davis says:

        Yep! I think this is pretty close to the definition of insanity!! (Keep doing the same stupid things over and over and expect a different outcome each time.) The movie industry had a head start over the NFL, but they are both running a race to see which industry will go over the cliff first. A normal person would figure out quickly that biting off the hands of the people who feed you will eventually lead to starvation! But not these folks….., they appear to be well past the stage of suicidal and well on their way to their place in infinity!

  37. Walt Tendee says:

    It appears most voting misinterpreted the question. The question asked about drop at the Box Office,
    NOT at the Academy Awards. Looks like most voting voted based on attitudes toward the Academy Awards ceremony, not the actual movies. The movies don’t necessarily display anti-Trump attitudes as they are sprayed at us by that nutcase MC. It was fun when Bert Parks and Bob Hope were the MC’s. Most today have no clue as to who those two guys were. They both did clean performances.

    • Joe says:

      People don’t go to the movies because of the liberal views of the actors, I won’t go to a movie and support their hypocrisy

  38. Tom Cook says:

    These people are the most useless instances of humanity in the universe; they are stupid, but believe they are intelligent; they have never really worked–acting is not work; they are pampered original snowflakes, and movies are more and more libtard garbage that I would never pay to see, or even watch most if they were free. Hollywood is now only representative of liberal hardwired agenda views: look at the Water film–what a jerkoff waste. And now all the shows have to have black heroes with white girlfriends or black gays and lesbos–what trash.

  39. Bob Hunt says:

    You don’t bad mouth our President and expect to have business as usual! And having an idiot for a host didn’t help your cause!

  40. ernie miller says:

    All they do is praise each other. Throw trash at our president and hide behind 500 heavily armed police wall and condemn us deplorables.

  41. Robert Gagliardi says:

    Personally,I haven’t supported Movies or the Actors portrayed in these movies.I love Sports but can’t go to any games like I used to because,this just stretches our current Society from those struggling to make ends meet and those with The Golden Spoon stuck where there,s No Light.I came to realize “Our Situation”years ago.The writing is on the Wall.Wake America.Don’t let your overwhelming desire for the life of ease take over.Life is constant work with few happy moments.”Love those happy moments.”Make more happy moments for yourself.Don’t count on actors reliving precious moments in time.Time passes,but the political inferences stay with us.Its time for all the regular folk to rise up and enjoy life like it was in the past.Without all the glorified Bologna.

    • Anne says:

      When actors learn their trade, the first thing they should be taught is that their audience enters the venue and then consents to suspend disbelief long enough to forget who the actor is and focus intensely on who he has become. If he says , ” To be or not to be “you are now looking at Hamlet. If instead you don’t see Hamlet, whom do you see. A person who has repeatedly insulted you ? Who then mocked your beliefs, your country, those of your neighbors ? You are just one of the ignorant, Deplorables clinging blindly to their beer, religion, and guns. If you only see the person who insults you while knowing nothing about you, he does not know that he has never come close to those who made his profession viable.

  42. jack says:

    They still have not learned; stick to movies and acting in them; no one wants their negative, hateful, angered, know-it-all opinions.
    Bad acting also came out a second with me. Haven’t watched a good movie in years, but I am sure there is some good acting and entertainment, but Hollywood themselves have turned us off to them.
    The lights, the money, the glamor, the extravagant, have all been overworked. Yet they what to tell us how to live, vote for and believe in; half of them don’t even know, but as liberal elites, the fact of common sense, decency and patriotism escapes most of them completely.

  43. Jim says:

    Think the above descriptions of the Hollywood “Celebrities” are equally fitting with many of the Washington “Leaders” and explain why they love each other so much?

  44. My2cents says:

    Between the ticket price, add 3D or IMAX the PR ICE GOUGING at the concession stands a family of 4 could spend up to $100. One word Greed

  45. Ken Sparrow says:

    I don’t watch shows in TV to listen to politics and people telling me I am a dumb ass because I don’t believe like they do. I don’t watch anything the left and Hollywood puts on also included is the NFL and any other sport that want to get political. Hollywood and gun control there ere 500 armed security people there protecting these A-holes who also go no where without armed security and live behind mansion walls telling the rest of us you don’t need a gun.

  46. JohnGaltHouston says:

    Both of the above and I’m sick of these commie/terrorist/illegal invader sympathizing elitist hypocrites who despise the rest of us “deplorables”. As in – the very people who buy the tickets to see their perverted anti-moral, anti-American, anti-family propaganda offal.
    Helliwood is a den of vipers that needs to be ignored and shunned into oblivion. Let them eat their own scat.

  47. Martin says:

    Very well put, oversized egos and super reduced intelligence. That is about the size of it.

  48. I agree with all of the above statements. Overpaid hypocrites that have no idea how most of us live. They are completely out of touch with reaity. Use to line to watch just to see the gowns. Could care less anymore.

  49. Thomas Goss says:

    I have no use for the scum in Hollywood, so why the hell would I waste my time watching them bash Trump and America. As far as I’m concerned they can ALL drop dead, I wouldn’t miss any of them.

  50. Bruce says:

    They are so conceited and think what they say is what every one else thinks which is 100% wrong! They really need a good dose of tar and feathers!

  51. Nancy says:

    What a bunch of trash take them all to the garabage

  52. Larry Rhodes says:

    No, my wife and I REFUSE to watch a show where EVERYONE (more or less) think they have a podium to speak their political opinions INSTEAD of what their JOBS are and thats to ENTERTAIN!! As a matter of fact, we USED to have favorite stars to watch, BUT since they have become so ANTI-PATRIOTIC and LIBERAL LEFT OPINIONS, we NO LONGER care fior their ENTERTAINING or watch ANYTHING they are in. They want to be political, then go into politics or DO THEIR POLITICNG on THEIR PERSONAL TIME, NOT on my time to see entertainment!!!

    • Aline says:

      I have NOT watched movies or their stupid oscars. All they do is choose which one of them is the most wonderful! MORONS! The only actors and movies I see are Christian movies! I’m sick of their political views! They should stick to ‘ play acting ‘, and NOTHING ELSE!! Sick of entitled jerks on screens! NO ONE CARES WHAT THEY THINK OR SAY! They are so full of hatred !

    • Anne says:

      The entertainment part is as dead as vaudville. Marx and Engels, Mau and pol pot are alive and well. If they cast Streep in another film it should be Countess Elizabeth Bathory.

  53. Joanna says:

    Unfortunately Hollywood is full of pure hatred when it comes to the american people. Hearts of stone and ignorance controls them plus alcohol and drug consumption overwhelms Hollywood..Leads young people to loss of life because they figure if they do illegal crap and get away with it ; they can too. Its too bad they can’t see the handwriting on the wall..

    • Mac says:

      If you’re above the law and get away with it all the time by the elite us little pee on don’t mean anything or our opinions or liberties

  54. SJHPW says:

    I don’t have the time or strength to watch the sanctimonious hypocrites televise their hatred and political ideology on a platform that is supposed to be for entertainment only. They are overpaid, morally bankrupt, loud mouths that actually believe they are important to spew this direspectful hatred towards all that don’t agree and fall all over their over hyped celebrity persona.

  55. GC says:

    It used to be that politics didn’t come up at the Oscars. In the last few years it has gotten worse and worse! My family and friends refuse to watch any of the award shows any more because of the politics. Too many oversized egos and super reduced intelligence.
