The entertainment industry is in trouble. Last night, the Woke Grammys, complete with a cameo from Fat Satan, delivered another ratings catastrophe with just 12.4 million viewers. That means you should not believe the headlines that say the viewership “surged to a three-year high!”
What’s really going on here? It’s simple. Over the last five years, Hollywood has alienated its fans with nothing but contempt. The entertainment industry is embracing gross stuff like obesity and hairy guys in dresses as “beautiful”, and last night the entertainment industry gave us Chubby Satan. This is an industry only interested in appealing to itself, and the ratings all across the board reflect that.
In this blog post, we’ll take a closer look at the dismal ratings for the Grammys and put it into perspective. We’ll also discuss why the entertainment industry is struggling to attract viewers, and how their own choices are to blame.
Back in 2020, the Grammys drew 18.7 million viewers, and that was considered a disaster. At the time, 18.7 million, which is 50 percent higher than this Sunday night’s viewership, was nearly an all-time low. In fact, since 1977, Grammy Award viewership has landed in the teens only on nine occasions, two of those times in the last two years.
The only reason the entertainment media can spin this 12.4 million debacle into something other than a debacle is due to the 8.8 million who watched in 2021 and the 8.9 million who watched in 2022. So, yeah, 12.4 million is higher than 8.8 million, but two times zero is still zero, y’all.
Don’t blame streaming competition either. In 2020, there was Netflix, and the Grammys still managed to attract 18.7 million viewers. What’s really happening is the entertainment industry has nothing but contempt for its fans. They are anti-entertainment and no one wants to watch three hours of the rich and privileged talking about how great they are and how awful the rest of us are.
So, don’t believe the spin. The entertainment industry is in trouble and it’s their own fault. We’re just hating them back.
