The 72nd Emmy awards hosted by anti-Trump host Jimmy Kimmel has set a new record: for the lowest ratings in the award show’s history.
As The Hill reports:
The 72nd Emmy Awards drew just 6.1 million viewers on ABC Sunday night, easily marking an all-time ratings low for the show, according to Nielsen.
Jimmy Kimmel hosted the awards show, after it went host-less last year.
“Well, I hosted the virtual Emmys last night. They’re saying it was the highest-rated Emmys ever,” Kimmel said on his late-night program Monday night. “Oh, the lowest? Oh, all right. Well, we set a record, let’s just say that.”…
NBC’s “Sunday Night Football” matchup between New England and Seattle easily won the ratings race on Sunday night, with more than 14 million people tuning in to see Seahawks 35-30 victory over the Patriots.
While Kimmel seemed to attempt to imply that the low ratings were due to the effects of the Coronavirus, a simpler explanation could be that Americans are simply sick of tuning into to be lectured on wokeness by overpaid and undereducated celebrities like Kimmel.
The Emmys ratings crashed last night. 😂
Nobody wants to watch a bunch of self-righteousness elitist snob’s preaching their woke liberal BS.
