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.
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.
