American Music Awards ratings
plunge 29 percent with politically
charged show

Fox News, by Brian Flood

Posted By:earlybird, 10/11/2018 1:20:05 PM

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.

At some point, Hollywood, which thrives on the superficial, will realize that all the political posing and leftist histrionics is threatening their fame and fortune, and suddenly fashionable
conservatism will sweep through their ranks on a wave of hypocrisy.

Did they move it to Tuesday night because nobody was watching it or did nobody watch it because it moved to Tuesday night?

I never liked Taylor Swift (too "New Nashville" for me--Hollywood with a Southern accent). Small wonder that she has gone over to the dark side of leftist politics.

I know of no one who watches any of these self serving love fests between people who feed off each other and compete for what they think is important. We, the deplorables, are expected to applaud and wait with bated breath for the insults delivered by these perfect examples of acrimonious low life who believe they have something to say that we want to hear. Who cares?

Calling this a politically charged show means what that they were given national air time to insult and defile all that real Americans hold sacred—Americans who love this country and who in no way want to hear the pearls of wisdom dropped by this bottom scraping level of dung they call talent. I couldn´t name a Taylor Swift song if I were beaten with a hose and my interest in her opinion you can hold in a thimble.

Such public masturbations as these (Oscars, etc.) are for show people only and not for the public. The public is only meant to eavesdrop on the tribal proceedings.

I have no interest in watching these award shows. It´s not just the politics...I don´t listen to contemporary music so the shows don´t mean anything to me. There are probably lots of us older folks like me. The same thing is going on with all the awards shows. They are just promotional gimmicks to sell more music or get people to go to a movie. Lots of us simply don´t care anymore.

A few weeks ago, there was some sort of cancer fundraiser on pretty much all the channels.

Tons of celebrities, and not one word of politics!!!!!

So you KNOW they CAN do it!!!! They just chose not to. And the crashing ratings for all these boring, political self-love shows are crashing and burning because of it!!!!

Of course, the horrible excuse for "music" that is produced these days probably doesn´t help the AMA very much either...

Not that I particularly care but 29 percent is a LOT. In the business world that would call for mass firings and a reorganization.

Speaking of which, are any numbers out yet for the dismal start of the NFL? I don´t even see scores on the news any more.

The revelation that Christine Blasey Ford’s high school friend and onetime adult roommate, Monica McLean, happens to be a former FBI agent may have raised so few eyebrows because we’ve grown accustomed to finding the FBI lurking in the background of major news stories. The father of Parkland High School student David Hogg, the media’s go-to expert on gun control, is a retired special agent. The 2016 Pulse nightclub mass murderer’s father was a long-time FBI informant.

As the position of ambassador to the United Nations is about to be vacant, from the retirement of the well-regarded Nikki Haley, former governor of South Carolina, and the president is considering alternatives, I wish to throw someone’s hat in the ring. It is sometimes hard to believe, but the embassy to the United Nations has at times been a serious position. The first American ambassador to the United Nations, Edward Stettinius, retired as secretary of state to take the position. In 1945, it was widely seen as a forum for coordinating the post-war activities of the cooperating victorious allies

A week ago, the national media was ecstatic that Beto Barbie had raised so much money that he broke an 18-year record in Senate fund-raising set by Rick Lazio in 2000. The press saw that as proof that the Fake Hispanic would defeat the Real Hispanic, Ted Cruz. Then someone reminded them that Lazio lost. Bigly.

Perhaps a reset of sorts is in order to understand why and how the DOJ is covering-up the most damaging evidence toward the institutions of the Senate, the DOJ and the FBI. The discussion must first reset to a key distinction: What we know of the DOJ and FBI events, is entirely different from what the DOJ and FBI have admitted to. #1) The DOJ and FBI have never officially said, or made a statement about, the FISA Court having sent a copy of the FISA application against Carter Page to the Senate Intelligence Committee

Why did Sen. Elizabeth Warren spend all these years claiming to be a Native American? One plausible answer might be that her family had lied to her, or were also misled about their heritage, and that Warren truly believed she was Cherokee. (Snip)The second is that Warren herself lied or exaggerated her heritage, knowing full well that her contention to Cherokee ancestry was likely nothing more than lore. She then latched on to this negligible history to gain traction in an academic field that was searching for more diversity in their candidates.

Elizabeth Warren is very concerned that Americans will not approve of her dishonest scheme to leapfrog over competitors during her academic career. Elizabeth Warren claimed she was a minority “Native American” to get ahead in her career. Warren is a fraud and she is concerned it may damage her chances of becoming the next US president.

Nearly everybody loves music. In fact, music can often bridge the gaps between people when nothing else can. And there are few things more fun than seeing people react to hit songs. There’s definitely no formula to what constitutes a hit song, although some songs were natural hits from the first time they made their way on the radio – think about songs like “I Want to Hold Your Hand,” “Total Eclipse of the Heart,” or “Irreplaceable.” Other tunes become smashes inexplicably.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) launched a bizarre Twitter rant late Monday afternoon following the disastrous rollout of DNA results that further debunked her decades-long claim to American Indian ancestry. Warren’s thread of 20-plus (and counting) tweets began at about 5:30 p.m. ET, where she attempted to both insult President Trump and defend herself. In her first tweet, and without any evidence, Warren made the outlandish claim that Trump “makes creepy physical threats about me.” The truth is that all Trump has ever done is ridicule her false claims about being Cherokee. “We all know why @realDonaldTrump makes creepy

On Oct. 14, CBS’s “60 Minutes” aired an interview with President Donald Trump — rare for its status as having appeared outside of Fox News or conservative media. Appearing the same weekend as First Lady Melania Trump’s appearance on “20/20,” this would seem to represent a new level of media blitzing on the part of an administration that’s already seen its head get plenty of free promotion during rallies broadcast on cable news.

On Monday a federal judge dismissed Stormy Daniels’ defamation suit against President Trump. Stormy filed a defamation suit against President Trump after he mocked her over a sketch of the man who allegedly threatened her–the man in the sketch looked eerily like her ex-husband. The U.S. District Judge dismissed the case on grounds Trump’s tweet was “rhetorical hyperbole,” not defamatory as Stormy Daniels alleged. The federal judge also ordered Stormy to pay Trump’s legal fees! On Tuesday morning President Trump tweeted out a warning to “horseface” Stormy Daniels and her “third rate lawyer” Michael Avenatti.
