Oscars Host Jimmy Kimmel Crushed by Terrible Ratings

Did you watch the Oscars on Sunday night? No? Well, neither did most other Americans, as the woke ceremony received far from stellar ratings, as an industry watcher website reported, saying:

Initial numbers for last night’s Oscars were close to 19 million. That’s up from last year, and the biggest numbers of all awards shows this season. ABC says total viewers came to 18.7 mil, up 12% from last year.

The Academy Awards brought in three times the number of the Golden Globes from back in January, too.

The show was so well produced and moving, and funny, that there will surely be a lot of delayed viewing before the finals come in tomorrow.

That came after an initial report that ratings were just around 16 million, barely an increase from last year:

Even if the ratings were closer to 18 or 19 million that 16 million, that’s still a far cry from back when Hollywood was popular.  Breitbart’s Nolte hammered that same point in an article on the subject, saying:

Regardless, Roger Friedman is embarrassing himself with his “Oscars are Back!” headline. How could the Oscars be back when last year 16.6 million tuned in, and that was a catastrophe—when that was the second-lowest viewership in Oscar telecast history?

Here’s a look at the last decade:

2013: 40.3 million
2014: 43.7 million
2015: 37.3 million
2016: 34.4 million
2017: 32.9 million
2018: 26.5 million
2019: 29.6 million
2020: 23.6 million
2021: 10.4 million (virus year)
2022: 16.6 million
2023: 16 million

How could the Oscars be back when it was deemed a humiliation when only 23.6 million tuned in back in 2020? Until the Woke Nazis infested Hollywood, the Oscars hit between 30 and 40 million viewers without breaking a sweat. Are we really going to grade on a woke curve where 16 million viewers means the Oscars are Back!.”

Yeah, so the Oscars aren’t actually “back,” much as the Hollyweirdos might want to claim that they are. Sure, things have recovered somewhat from Covid, and that 2023 number should be ~18.7 million instead of 16 thanks to the corrected ratings, but it’s still not great. In fact, it’s the third-worst result ever.

What’s more, that’s in a year when there were two huge movies that should have brought in audiences. “Top Gun: Maverick” and “Avatar: Way of the Water” were big hits for the movie industry as it tries to claw its way out of a wokeness and Covid-induced disaster. And “Maverick” even had something of a conservative, or at least patriotic, message. But still no one tuned in to watch the woke awards show.

Again, even if the 2023 number was closer to 18 or 19 million than the 16 million number initially reported, the Oscars are hardly “back.” They might be better than during Covid, but aren’t back to pre-Covid levels, much less early 2000s levels. That has to be humiliating for the smug and woke Jimmy Kimmel…despite population growth, big hits, and a growing desire among Americans to get back to “normal,” he couldn’t even manage to bring in a pre-Covid audience. Yikes.

Americans are tuning out of woke Hollywood. Even if it’s not gone broke yet, it’s going woke isn’t good for business.
