The Grammys are a joke.
Like every awards show in Hollywood, it’s become nothing more than an opportunity for self-congratulatory celebrities to gather and celebrate their self-righteousness.
But those celebrities were just slammed with a huge realization.
If you watched the Grammys over the weekend then you probably weren’t surprised that it was basically an anti-Trump ceremony with a few live performances thrown in.
Hillary Clinton even made a cameo to read part of the newest fake-news book “Fire and Fury” by Michael Wolff.
But people are beginning to anticipate that any televised gathering of celebrities and entertainers will ultimately be hours of liberal talking points disguised as jokes or speeches or “entertainment”, so they are tuning out.
And this year’s Grammys were no different.
“Hosted by James Cordon for the second year in a row and continuing on Sundays for the House of Moonves, the 60th annual Grammys additionally had a discerning Dave Chappelle win his first award at the ceremony and a handful for country star Chris Stapleton to take home.
Amidst a wide spectrum of performances at Madison Square Garden, Patti LuPone showed how a mic drop bridges generations, and there was a “Jay for President” shout-out from Lamar for a Trump scrapping and multiple nominated Jay-Z in the front row.
With a 12.7/21 in metered market ratings, the Recording Academy’s big hootenanny was also way down from the early numbers from the LA-based February 13, 2017 59th annual show.
By way down, I mean a just over 20% decline from last year to what looks to be an all-time low for the ceremony.
Facing the midseason debut of The Walking Dead and even a bit more competition on the rest of the Big 4 than last night’s show, last year’s Adele dominated Grammys eventually claimed 26.05 million viewers and a 7.8 rating among adults 18-49 when the final numbers came in.
Year-to-year, those results were up a tiny bit in total sets of eyeballs from the 2016 Grammys, which were held on a Monday, but basically the same as the February 15 show of almost two years ago in the key demo.
All of which had a bottom line of the 2017 Grammys being the most watched since 2014 but the second-lowest-rated since 2009 – with only 2016 going lower by half a hair.
Airing earlier than usual this year, at least there wasn’t any zombie apocalypse for the Grammys to worry about getting a bite from last night.
The Walking Dead doesn’t return for the second half of its eighth season until February 25.
CBS can also be pretty confident that they won the night against mainly encore heavy competition on the rest of the Big 4.”
Much like the NFL, people are refusing to watch because Hollywood has to inject their politics and virtue signaling in everything they do.
And it’s only going to get worse if they continue with their rhetoric.
