Stephen Colbert’s anti-Trump Emmy awards show didn’t do well in the ratings.
Who could have guessed that this would happen? It turns out most Americans don’t want to watch rich liberals give each other awards as they bash half of the country.

Colbert-hosted Emmys on track to be least-watched in history
The 2017 Emmy Awards show hosted by Stephen Colbert on CBS is tracking to be the lowest-rated in the show’s televised history, according to preliminary numbers from Nielsen Media Research.
The 8.2 overnight rating among metered-market households is down 2 percent from the previous all-time low from just last year, when Jimmy Kimmel hosted on ABC. An 8.2 rating equates to about 11.2 million viewers.
The Emmys weren’t even the highest-rated program in its time slot, losing easily to NBC’s “Sunday Night Football” match-up between the Green Bay Packers and Atlanta Falcons, which registered a 12.6 overnight rating.
Much of the evening at the Emmys was focused on President Trump, with staunch critic Colbert hitting the former reality TV star from the start of the opening monologue and throughout the entire show.
Hollywood has learned nothing since the election. People are just going to tune them out completely if they keep this up. The only people who are paying attention to their antics is them.
