Who knew no one was interested in watching self-aggrandizing moral posturing from a bunch of overpaid phoneys? Oh, that’s right, EVERYONE.
Whether they’re lecturing the rest of us lowly Americans about our political beliefs, feigning moral superiority, mocking traditional values, or acting like everyone from the South is a racist hick, those in Middle America no longer give a rat’s ass about the annual self-aggrandizing parade known as the Oscars.
Turns out, no one is really interested in listening to a bunch of overpaid phoneys parade their shallowly formed moral opinions, especially not when the same elitists are simultaneously harboring rapists and pedophiles.
This year, in a post-#MeToo world, created, condoned, and later blown up by Hollywood, viewers disinterest in Progressive Virtue Signal Land hit an all-time low. And not just by a tiny little bit — ratings tanked by a whopping 19% compared to 2017.
From The Hollywood Reporter:
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 telecast, 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 telecast 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.
The 2017 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.)
If host Jimmy Kimmel’s attitude reflects that of the rest of Hollywood, then they truly see themselves as the mecca from which all moral authority flows. How could we ever navigate through life without Hollywood’s direction?!
You may remember Kimmel from ‘The Man Show’ which had regular segments of hot chicks jumping on trampolines:
No one is more deserving, really:
