This year, the Golden Globe Awards was a massive disappointment, to say the least, judging by the early numbers on its ratings. On Tuesday night, the NBC broadcast experienced a crash in viewership resulting in all-time-low ratings for the awards show.
Breitbart succinctly stated, “Hollywood sucks, America knows it, and according to the preliminary numbers, Tuesday’s NBC telecast of the Golden Globe Awards crashed to an all-time low. Just how much has Woke McCarthyism destroyed award shows by perverting them into pompous lectures?”
According to reports form Programming Insider, only 5.36 million viewers tuned in to watch the awards show. Comparing this to other shows which were also being aired on Tuesday night, CBS’s FBI had 6.43 million viewers and FBI: Most Wanted gathered 5.92 million viewers.
Forbes reported on the lackluster ratings:
At its height, The Golden Globe Awards on NBC, which signal the unofficial start of the awards season, attracted as many as 26.8 million viewers (in 2004, according to Nielsen Media Research). Of course, there were no streaming services or as many cable networks at the time. Translation: less competition. So, virtually every network series, awards shows included, have seem the traditional ratings dwindle over the years. But the long-awaited return of The Golden Globe Awards on Tuesday after a one year absence fell below expectations.
As recent as 2020, the once famous Golden Globes attracted over 18 million total viewers. This number plunged the following year in 2021 to a mere 6.9 total viewers, creating the previous record low that was easily broken this year.
As Breitbart claimed, the failing ratings are from the incessant woke narratives that are pushed on viewers every time a celebrity would stand up to give an acceptance speech. The news outlet did not hold back in stating what many Americans are likely thinking:
There were no Golden Globes in 2022. The Woke Gestapo shut down the Globes after discovering their membership lacked the appropriate racial quotas. But, with much fanfare, the Globes returned to NBC last night…
All the anticipation around the return of the Globes did nothing to juice its ratings. Why? Because everyone knew — correctly, as it turned out — the Globes would spend all three of its hours proving its purity to the Woke Gestapo. In other words, the show would be no fun whatsoever.
These numbers might improve as more information streams in, but not enough to avoid humiliation.
Left-wing Hollywood is woke-raping these award shows into irrelevance. How much longer are the stupes at NBC going to pay millions of dollars to broadcast something that doesn’t attract more viewers than a 66-year-old movie?
There is hardly any reason for the average American to watch any of the pretentious awards shows. One can only expect to lectured by the elites who have no grasp on what reality is for normal people. The adage so often used these days, “Go woke, go broke,” can be fully applied to the disaster ratings of the Golden Globes this year.
