Jimmy Kimmel could be gone sooner than you think.
The anti-Trump comedian recently made headlines while exchanging barbs with Fox News star Sean Hannity.
And now Kimmel’s making headlines yet again, but not for the reasons you would think.
You’ve probably heard about the heated exchange between Hannity and Kimmel that began after Kimmel incredulously ridiculed the First Lady’s accent on his late nite program.
Kimmel caught immense backlash and Sean Hannity called him out as the hateful, unfunny fraud that he is.
Kimmel eventually apologized, but only after Hannity brought up the fact that his boss, Bob Iger, was a longtime collaborator of his.
But while Kimmel may still havehis late-nite gig,according to TV By the Numbers, Kimmel’s ratings have become dangerously low.
“According to TV By the Numbers, so far this season Jimmy Kimmel Live has averaged only a measly 2.31 million viewers. That is it — 2.31 million total viewers. In a country of 330 million, that is less than one percent. Statistically speaking, Kimmel’s viewership is a big fat zero.
Jimmy Fallon and Stephen Colbert are not much better, with an average of 2.97 million and 3.89 million, respectively. Sure they are beating Kimmel; Colbert is nearly doubling Kimmel. But two times zero is still zero.
Seth Meyers is at an anemic 1.59 million.
In other words, no one watches these guys, these mindless Trump haters puffed up by our corporate media into something they are not — influence leaders with their finger on the pulse.
Is it any wonder, then, that Jimmy Kimmel hosting the Oscars resulted in the lowest viewership in history? No one knows who Kimmel is, and those who do know him do not like him enough to give his show anything approaching a respectable audience.
How bad are Kimmel’s ratings? For perspective, here are eight shows with more viewers…
1. Hannity (Fox News) –2.9 million viewers
How humiliating for Kimmel. He has legions of writers and producers and Hannity still kicks his ass even after doing three hours of radio. When will Hannity host the Oscars?
2. Tucker Carlson Tonight (Fox News) – 2.6 million viewers
Two shows on Fox News are cleaning little Jimmy’s clock.
3. The Talking Dead (AMC) – 2.37 million viewers
A talk show that talks about another show draws more viewers than Kimmel’s failing talk show.
4. Fixer Upper Special (HGTV) – 2.960 million viewers
Kimmel’s losing to home improvement shows, y’all.
5. Judge Judy (syndicated) – 2.4 million viewers
Kimmel’s getting his lunch eaten by a daytime court show.
6. Family Feud (syndicated) – 2.7 million viewers
Why isn’t Steve Harvey hosting the Oscars? He’s actually funny and more people watch his show — even though it’s a 42-year-old game show.
7. Jersey Shore: Family Vacation (MTV) – 2.55 million viewers
Keep up the great work, Jimmy, you’re losing to a spin-off of a barrel bottom reality show.
What we are seeing with Kimmel is the same shell game the media played with The Daily Show’s Jon Stewart. Although Stewart’s ratings were laughably low, the American media so loved his leftism they created a Potemkin Stewart, a mirage that pretended America was in love with a guy who could not attract even 1 percent of the population to tune into his no-rated smug-fest.”
Kimmel may feel invincible and thus believes he can say whatever he wants, but it’s clear Americans are sick of his antics.
Bob Iger may soon be forced to reconsider the host’s value on the ABC network.
