Once upon a time, millions of Americans eagerly tuned in to watch Hollywood awards ceremonies. They would cheer on their favorite TV shows and actors, celebrating their big wins.
But in recent years, these events have become ground zero for Hollywood’s woke, anti-Trump agenda. Awards shows no longer seem to be fun, engaging events.
Instead, they are polluted with political comments and other content. Americans are getting tired of watching entitled liberals scold them for embracing traditional values and morals. And now, the Emmys reached an all-time low.
From Daily Wire:
The Emmy ratings tanked for a second year, with the annual awards show suffering its worst performance ever — just 4.46 million viewers tuned in for Monday night’s show…
The telecast brought in 4.46 million viewers — which was down from the previous low set in 2022 when the annual awards show got 5.9 million viewers, the outlet noted.
In a trend that has become common for Hollywood, the Emmys had its worst ratings ever. Only 4.46 million viewers watched the Monday night show. While TV viewership has declined over the years, plenty of content continues to bring in large numbers.
Political news coverage continues to attract millions of viewers across networks. And the week’s NFL playoff game between Philadelphia and Tampa Bay saw 28 million viewers. Considering that award ceremonies are a once-a-year event, viewership should be just as high.
Critics frequently blame what goes on at these ceremonies for viewership decline. There appears to be a growing gap between Hollywood and the average American’s values. This goes beyond woke politics.
Filmmakers and TV networks seem to have forgotten how regular Americans think, producing movies and shows that fail to attract audiences. Actors have become propagandists, using social media to spread their wild ideology.
Most award ceremonies are punctuated with actors giving politically-charged speeches. This has become a very common occurance, since the Trump administration. It is likely that many Americans would rather not watch these shows, than be insulted by liberal celebrities.
This has failed to impress Americans, and they are tuning out for alternative forms of entertainment. It should not come as a surprise that they are not interested in watching their awards shows.
- The Emmys had its worst ratings year, with only 4.3 million viewers.
- This is the lowest ratings the show has seen in its history.
- This comes as Hollywood awards shows see a continued decline in viewership.
