Affirmative Action Emmys: Americans tune out of “dump on Trump” fest in droves

David MenziesMission Specialist

The Emmys are supposed to be about honouring excellence in television, but instead what we witnessed the other night resembled the halftime act at the Democratic Party’s National Convention.

Watch as I show you why Sunday’s bitch-fest has emerged as one of the lowest-rated Emmy telecasts of all time.

In the end, Americans who tuned in to be entertained rather than preached to, weren’t buying what the Emmy Elites were selling.

Those in TV land tuned out as it began to feel like the Affirmative Action Emmys.
As for the theme of the night, it was this: When in doubt, Dump on Trump!

If, on the other hand, an actor had expressed his or her support for President Trump, THAT would have been the very definition of courageous.

But being pro-Trump in the biosphere of the bizarre that is Hollywood is a no-fly zone.

It’s all so brave to come on stage and declare that you’re a member of the LGBTQIA-and-sometimes-Y community. But just try taking the podium and proclaiming that you’re a Trump supporter or a Republican or that you swing right of centre!

If you know what’s good for you, it’s best you stay in the closet.

In Hollywood Trump bashing is mandatory, they can’t get work otherwise. On the other hand most people don’t want to watch that charade. Hollyweirdos don’t have a clue how average Americans live. They have lost touch with reality. They demand open borders from their high security gated communities.

People are tied of these self important pigs thinking they get to lecture us little people while they do not practice as they preach. People respect integrity , not hypocritical lectures.

Andrew when you actually realize the truth maybe you will make sense.
commented 2017-09-22 02:25:27 -0400
James Van Halen then explain last year. IDIOT!

Andrew this has been happening for some years now, they are just getting more obnoxious. Try again.

I have never watched the Emmies and gave up watching the Oscars soon after Bob Hope was pushed out of the emcee role, and that’s going back a few years, eh?… Since both are such manifestations of the Hollywood crowd kissing each others butts, I wonder how much tanking in their ratings – a la ESPN lately – they will take before some sponsors start rattling a few cages…

I’m with you Deborah G., I was a faithful watcher of all the award shows, when actresses/actors were real movie stars way back then. Today, I don’t waste 5 minutes on these phony politically filled garbage so called entertainment, doesn’t entertain me one bit. I have no interest in celebrities, who are still regarded by many almost God like, it’s disgraceful.

Hollywood’s grossly overpaid starlets are an embarrassment to their country and profession.

Last year’s Emmy’s had low viewership as well. Hollywood elites preaching leftist ideology is a big Snore Fest… preachy, self-indulgent actors are so 2015!

All knowing Andy and the coward with the fake names using a new name, James…….Thanks ever so much for your insight…….NOT! Now go play on the freeway or bob for french fries or what ever,…..just go away.

What bullshit this is. The Emmy’s actually acknowledged even before the show was aired that ratings would be down because you know there were some natural disasters in the country and those areas which typically have had high viewership either no longer have a TV, electricity or are simply focused on more important things right now in terms of trying to get their life back to normal.

Has nothing to do with Trump since Stephen Colbert attacks Trump every night and his talk show is number one in the ratings.

Good report David Menzies. You took the words right out of our mouths. TV and Hollywood personalities are becoming more and more abstracted from the needs and desires of ordinary people. It is bound to get a lot worse before it gets better.

I haven’t watched any award shows for many years, and don’t intend to. Who really cares what they think?
commented 2017-09-21 12:57:45 -0400
This event should be renamed The Vomit Fest. Hollywood just puked up another bucket of self-serving claptrap. That should reel in next year’s TV audience—-Not!

I love how much they’re making of 9.6 million viewers in ’16 declining to 9.5 in ’17. Below the margin of error on preliminary numbers, and even if accurate, a fraction of the decline from ’15 to ’16. So trivial that the difference could be mostly rounding error – if you had 9,550,000 watching in ’16, and 9549,999 in ’17, that one person could account for the difference since one rounds up the other down.

But, taken at face value,, that out of every ten thousand Americans, approximately*three* tuned out.

Droves, indeed. Do I sense desperation in the right wing cause? Or are we just relaying the Breitbart story without stopping to consider their occasionally casual relationship with the truth?

I wonder if in 3 years the MSM (including CTV &CBC) will still have nothing to do but knock Trump, as their ratings dive. The Internet should have nearly 100% of the News audience by then.

Bunch of dumb Demi-Craps.
