Hours After Trashing Trump At Grammy Awards, Liberal Celebrities PANIC As Ratings Come In

Liberal celebrities spent Sunday evening trashing President Donald Trump at the 60th Annual Grammy Awards in New York City. However, they’re all now panicking because the ratings have finally come in, and they aren’t good news for these out-of-touch elitists.

“Music’s Biggest Night” was a big ol’ flop this year, and that’s likely due to the fact that those in the entertainment industry just can’t seem to separate their jobs from politics. Indeed, the ratings are now in for Sunday night’s Grammy Awards and they look to have taken a substantial plunge from last year as Trump-bashing dominated the evening.

Celebrities pulled out all the stops on Sunday night for the 60th Annual Grammy Awards. Many of the famous attendees wore white roses to accessorize their designer ensembles on the red carpet as a show of solidarity with victims of sexual harassment and assault. This, of course, accomplished absolutely nothing in the way of curbing sexual harassment and assault, but that was never really the point.

If these same celebrities were actually concerned with putting an end to the rampant abuse within their industry and other industries which are notorious purveyors of sexual misconduct, they would have spoken up about it decades ago. Make no mistake, every single one of them knew it was going on, but they chose to stay silent because it wasn’t politically expedient to blow the whistle at the time.

This, however, was not the only stunt which was staged on Sunday evening. Perhaps the most cringe-worthy moment was a cameo appearance by twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, who read an excerpt from lying author Michael Wolff’s discredited novel “Fire and Fury.”

After so much Trump-bashing, it’s no wonder that when the ratings came in on Monday, they were piss poor. Millions of Americans voted for the president and still support him, so naturally, they weren’t exactly keen on tuning in to watch a bunch of out-of-touch celebrities trashing the man who literally just put more of their own hard-earned money in their pockets with his historic tax cuts.

Fast affiliate results have the James Corden fronted 60th annual biggest night in music coming in with a 5.4/19 rating among adults 18-49 and 17.64 million viewers between 7:30 – 11 PM ET. That means that last night’s show fell 26% in the key demo from the fast affiliates of the February 12, 2017 59th Grammys. Viewershipwise, the 60th Grammys shed over 5 million sets of eardrums from last year for what was a 23% drop.

Right now it looks like last night’s Bruno Mars topping ceremony is the lowest rated ever and the least watched since the 17.18 million who tuned in back in 2008. Overall, CBS snagged a 5.0/18 rating and 16.68 million viewers to win Sunday.

The 59th Grammy Awards ended up with a 7.8/22 rating and 26.04 million viewers.

As for what else was on last night, ABC’s double dose of Shark Tank fared pretty well. The 9 PM airing pulled in a 1.1/4, while the 10 PM showing drew a 1.0/4. The two Shark Tanks were down just a tenth from their final ratings of January 21. [Source: Deadline]

It’s pretty sad when “Shark Tank” fares better than the Grammys, relatively speaking. But, the music industry has had this coming for quite some time now. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, all the while expecting a different outcome each time. This is precisely what entertainers do when they walk the red carpet, take the stage, or accept an award, only to use their platform as a way to verbally assault our Commander-in-Chief.

When will these imbeciles learn? I wouldn’t hold my breath waiting for it to happen if I were you.
