Suck it Hollyweird: Ratings for 2018 Emmy Awards hit all-time low

From Fox News: Hollywood may have laughed when Emmys host Michael Che said the only white people who thank Jesus are “Republicans and ex-crackheads,” but Tinseltown’s latest middle finger to Middle America fell flat in flyover country, and may have contributed to the telecast’s all-time low viewership.

Co-host Michael Che left many viewers of the 70th Annual Emmy Awards upset during the opening monologue with his fellow “Saturday Night Live” star Colin Jost, explaining that his mother would not be watching the show on Monday night.

“She says she doesn’t like watching white award shows because you guys don’t thank Jesus enough,” Che said. “That’s true. The only white people that thank Jesus are Republicans and ex-crackheads.

The joke didn’t sit well with some viewers, who took to Twitter to complain. Not only that, the show’s ratings dropped 10 percent from last year’s already-dismal numbers, setting an all-time low, according to TheWrap.

While many viewers may have changed the channel after the opening monologue, jabs at average Americans were far from over and the Jesus gag became a running theme throughout the evening.

Conservative strategist Chris Barron told Fox News that “large swaths of the American public just want to be entertained” but instead were turned into “unwilling participants” in a political rally disguised as an awards show.

“Whether it’s the NFL or the Emmys, people desperately want a break from politics. It’s amazing to me at just how tone deaf Hollywood is,” Barron said.

“Most Republicans have stopped watching awards shows or know that even if they can stomach it, the White House and their core values will be attacked. I kept thinking last night, thank goodness for a few actors like Chris Pratt, who buck the trend and show a healthy respect and love for Christianity in acceptance speeches,” Fox Nation host Britt McHenry said. “Reverence for God is something to cherish and uphold, not ridicule.”

Jokes about religious Republicans weren’t the only jabs at Middle America.

Prior to the official event, actress Regina King spoke with E! about a cryptic Instagram post in which she asked to “stop making stupid people famous,” which many have interpreted as a dig at President Trump. The Red Carpet also featured actress Jennifer Lewis wearing a Nike sweatshirt “to applaud them for supporting Colin Kaepernick,” who has polarized the nation by starting the trend of kneeling during the national anthem prior to NFL games.

Jost discussed a handful of shows that were canceled and picked up by other networks before joking that Roseanne Barr’s show was “picked up by white nationalists.” He also implied that some Americans don’t think Nazis are bad and fantasized about President Obama upsetting Trump with a dig at the former reality TV star who is famously obsessed with ratings.

“The Obamas now even have their own production deal at Netflix,” Jost said. “My dream is that the only thing they produce is their own version of ‘The Apprentice.’ And it gets way higher ratings.”

Meanwhile, the Emmys decided to honor late Senator John McCain during its in memoriam. Nobody would complain about an American hero being remembered in front of a national audience, but Media Research Center contributing writer Karen Townsend questioned the motive behind the decision.

One can’t help but wonder if this was done as a subtle dig at President Trump. After all, it was only 10 years ago that all of Hollywood hated McCain when he ran for president against their beloved Obama,” she wrote.

Later in the show, award winner Ryan Murphy called America a “country that lets hatred grow unfettered and unchecked.” Anti-Trump comedian Samantha Bee – best known for vile comments about first daughter Ivanka Trump – joked that the news should “recast the lead.”

  1. First, it isn’t only “middle America” who are Christian. This constant divide and conquer narrative must stop. Everything is “political” and one is either “on the bus” or off.

    I suppose the question could be, “why do people watch TV?”. They are nothing but the mouth piece of The Odor.

    It is clear that the intent here is to get the eaters thinking that “only stupid people are Christian”. That’s the message. Also, Satanists are smart, trendy people.

    It is far too obvious to be accidental. This is a planned, carefully executed mind-control effort. These shows are just bait.

     
  2. Down, down, down the go! It’s over for Hollywood and the weirdos!

     
  3. If they’re admitting to a “10% drop from last year’s numbers”, rest assured that the drop was > 2x that. Shame on us if we didn’t learn how polls are c(r)ooked when they told us all that Hillary was way in the lead in 2016.

    That said, I read a premise somewhere that no matter how many provable facts you give the public regarding a specific “conspiracy” issue, 85% of them hit the cognitive dissonance wall and will simply never change their initial (media-induced) beliefs.

    I’m starting to believe this is true. I see it every day, and I’m talking about otherwise intelligent folks with college-level or higher degrees. Assuming the original premise to be correct, hat means only 15% of the population can ever be awoken, give or take.

    Of course, only 15-25% of the population participated in the first American Revolution, depending how you define “participation”, and that worked out pretty well for 140 or so years.

     
  4. Pray that American pop culture get loose from what prevails today and become more Godly than ever before. Make America Godly Again.
