Hollywood will never learn. The harder they push to the left, the smaller their audience will get. In the case of the 2018 Emmy Awards, the viewership this year was even lower than last year.
Deadline Hollywood reports:
Emmy Awards Crash To New Low With 10.2M Viewers & Slipping Demo
The final numbers from Nielsen are in and the Colin Jost and Michael Che hosted show pulled in 10.172 million viewers and a 2.4 rating among adults 18-49. – a new all-time low for TV’s biggest night
While not as bad as the falls that the Oscars and Grammys have seen in recent years, that’s still down 4% in the demo and 11% in sets of eyeballs from the previous low of last year’s Stephen Colbert hosted and Sean Spicer cameoing Emmys, held on a Sunday. Falling to painful numbers, the Lorne Michaels executive produced 70th Primetime Emmys are also face planted 34% in viewers from the Don Mischer EP’d 66th Primetime Emmys.
That August 25 2014 ceremony was the last time the Comcast-owned net had the Emmys and was also on a Monday, so NBC could still keep its Sunday Night Football schedule on track…
In the final numbers, last year’s Emmys snared 11.8 million viewers and a 2.5 rating among adults 18-49. That translated into matching the previous viewership low of the Jimmy Kimmel-hosted 2016 Emmys and a new low among the key demographic. Those record lows, based on the first set of numbers we are looking at today, appear very likely to be eclipsed this year.
How long does the Hollywood left think they can keep this up? There is going to come a point where advertisers won’t see awards shows as cost effective anymore. Then it’s game over.
