American Music Awards ratings plunge 29 percent with politically charged show
By Brian Flood | Fox News
Published 18 hours ago


The politically charged 2018 American Music Awards produced dismal viewership, setting an all-time low rating for the annual special.

According to Variety, Tuesday night’s “American Music Awards” on ABC earned a disappointing 1.8 rating among the key demo of adults age 18-49 with 6.5 million total viewers, according to the Hollywood trade publication. The total was down 25 percent compared to its 2.4 demo rating in 2017.

The show – which aired on a Tuesday as opposed to the typical Sunday -- dropped approximately 29 percent in total viewers after drawing 9.2 million last year, the outlet reports.

During the low-rated show, Taylor Swift – who recently broke her longtime political silence by slamming Republican Senate candidate Marsha Blackburn -- urged fans to vote in the upcoming midterm elections.

"This award and every single award given out tonight were voted on by the people," the 28-year-old popstar said while accepting the Artist of the Year award, Swift's third win of the night.

She continued: "And you know what else is voted on by the people is the midterm elections on Nov. 6. Get out and vote. I love you guys."

(Oops, shoulda posted this here. I see the other thread had a typo/incomplete sentence mistake. So I'll just re-post the same comment I posted in the other thread):

Gee whiz, who coulda guessed that pissing off roughly half the country might affect ratings?

What a shock.

Good riddance.

Proof yet again of how clueless these people truly are.
They have yet to learn the lesson that Free Speech means you can express your beliefs, your ideas, your dreams, and your disagreements without fear of arrest, imprisonment or death, but at the same time I am just as free to tune you out and choose not to support you. The smart ones learn to by in large keep it to a minimum or at least do it a manner that is civil, respectful, and re enforces that they simply have a different opinion and ideas but still respect and have no ill will towards those with different opinions and ideas. Few Hollyweird Twerps do this know days though.

:yeahthat:

Egotistical libtarded Hollyweird and Nashville proggies giving themselves awards.

Like...anybody really gives a shidt anymore?

I hope they keep up their political SJW rants and completely alienate their entire fan base.

Then watch 'em all go broke and cry some more.

Sometimes I think some of these artists won't be around after 5-10 years.

Cue the navel gazing in entertainment mags and media everywhere wondering why the ratings are down, culminating in the predictable conclusion that it is Trumps fault, somehow.

Their ratings are going down for a variety of reasons. There are too many of these ego stroking awards shows on for one thing. Most of the demo group doesn’t watch TV the same way as when they started putting on these dog and pony shows for another. And, of course, people want to watch to be entertained, not preached to, but they producers just can’t help themselves – they have to tell us how to behave.
