2018 Golden Globes award show ratings down 11 percent in demo group

so sad

Guess the “protest” of wearing black didn’t cut it for some folks.

From Variety: The 2018 Golden Globes were down in the Nielsen ratings compared to last year.

The Golden Globes, airing on NBC, drew a 5.0 rating in adults 18-49 and 19 million viewers. That is an approximate drop of approximately 11 percent in the demo and 5 percent in total viewers compared to 2017’s final numbers (5.6, 20 million). The 2016 Golden Globes finished out with a 5.5 and 18.7 million.

In addition, in metered market households, this year’s ceremony drew a 13.4 rating, up slightly from the 13.3 from last year’s ceremony.

Earlier on NBC, the Golden Globes red carpet arrivals drew a 2.2 and 10 million viewers.

On ABC, “America’s Funniest Home Videos” (1.4, 6 million) hit a new season high in both measures, while the first of two new episodes of “Shark Tank” (1.3, 4.7 million) equaled that show’s season high. The second episode of “Shark Tank” drew a 1.1 and 3.8 million viewers.

Fox’s primetime lineup got a boost from an NFL overrun, meaning they will likely adjust down later today. “The Simpsons” is currently at a 3.4 and 9.1 million. “Ghosted” is at a 1.8 and 4.3 million. “Family Guy” is at a 1.6 and 3.5 million. “The Last Man on Earth” is at a 1.1 and 2.7 million.

CBS lineup was down from its last original lineup, though that was expected as that week saw an NFL boost. “60 Minutes” drew a 0.8 and 7.8 million. “Wisdom of the Crowd” is at a 0.7 and 5.8 million. “NCIS: Los Angeles” is at a 0.9 and 7.8 million. “Madam Secretary” is at a 0.6 and 6.1 million.

Fox won the night in the demo with a 4.2 but finished second in total viewers with 12.7 million. NBC was second in the demo with a 3.7 but first in total viewers with 14.5 million. ABC was third in the demo with a 1.2 but fourth in total viewers with 4.8 million. CBS was fourth in the demo with a 0.8 but third in total viewers with 6.9 million.

  1. Good, but not enough. When their numbers go to zero they might get the message.

    • I’m not sure their mental disorder will allow them to ever ‘get the message’. It’s a MENTAL DISORDER. A corruption of the brain’s wiring. Not thier fault, but still they present a threat. While they must be dealt with humanly, they still must be dealt with.

  4. I never have watched any awards or beauty shows. They are stupid drawing these morons to show how much they can expose. Children watching this stuff? What an example for them to look up to. Too much nudity in their fashion.

  5. Every “award” show, same people, same Schtick, never turn them on and haven’t for years. My life doesn’t have to be completed by watching people pat themselves on their backs, then start with the preaching to the rest of us.
    Give me the British shows any day. And even Korean dramas.

    • Glenn47 . . . . I also love the British shows. One thing that rubbed me the wrong way . . . some gal was complaining that ALL of the nominees for Best Director were male. (Altough I did not watch the show.) She must be a big proponent of “fair is fair, “everyone gets a trophy.” If the women did not come up with high marks for their directing skills . . . then perhaps they had better start honing their craft, so that they can compete. As for all the dreary black dress . . . gag me!

  6. LOL – I’m not even remotely interested in watching award shows where commie-lib fascists give awards to other commie-lib fascists for being commie-lib fascists.

  9. Let me sound the warning: I am a teacher. My kids don’t know who these old fogey actors are…they’ve never seen “esteemed” films….or most TV shows, et al…..they are creatures of their cell phones…..to which they are attached 24/7, even during school hours. Dear Hollywood: the world has moved on and you have NOT. Not too many people care anymore about you. Your “celebrity” anymore is about as important as finding a reliable plumber or Heating/AC person who can come at your call: pretty important, but not exclusive in any manner. If you don’t “show up,” someone else will.
