Politicized ‘Trump bashing’ by celebrities backfires
The prestigious Emmy Awards show plummeted by ten percent compared to 2017 following its politicized ‘Trump bashing’ by celebrities.
According to the early ratings of the show, the 70th Emmy Awards telecast on NBC sank with just a 7.4 household rating, 10 percent collapse when compared with 2017.
The final numbers, which are predicted to be equally abysmal, will include the total viewers and various demographics and will be released later on Thursday.
Che co-hosted the awards with his fellow “Saturday Night Live” star Colin Jost and during his opening monologue:
My mother is not watching,” Che said.
“She says she doesn’t like watching white award shows because you guys don’t thank Jesus enough.”
“That’s true,” he continued.
“The only white people that thank Jesus are Republicans and ex-crackheads.”
According to Breitbart: It was believed the ratings could not get much worse than they were in 2017 when far-left comedian Stephen Colbert hosted.
This year’s telecast was dominated by the far-left cast and producers of Saturday Night Live, but this only appears to have scared more people away.
Like everything else in the age of Trump, Saturday Night Live and all Hollywood award shows have become humorless, angry, partisan, divisive, and insulting to half of the American public.
As a result, almost all of these award shows have suffered record-low ratings.
Just last month, ratings for the MTV Video Awards collapsed to a record low.
In March, the Jimmy Kimmel-hosted Oscars sank by an incredible 16 percent, hitting an all-new record low.
The Grammys took a -20 percent dive in January to an all-time record low.
The Golden Globes, hosted by the anti-Trump Seth Myers, also took a dive, especially with younger viewers.
