Jimmy Kimmel Channels Hillary Clinton for Oscar Ratings Excuses
Poor little Jimmy Kimmel. He’s hosted the Oscars two years in a row and it shows.
The ratings for the 2018 Oscars was dismal to say the least. So now Kimmel channels Hillary Clinton as he offers excuses.
As the Washington Beacon reports:
Jimmy Kimmel blamed Netflix for the 90th annual Academy Awards getting the lowest television ratings in the show’s history.
Kimmel, who attacks President Donald Trump and conservatives regularly on his ABC late-night show, hosted the Oscars for the second straight year, seeing disappointing ratings both times. The 2018 Oscars appear to have suffered a substantial 19 percent ratings drop compared to the show in 2017.
I’m curious, but what was the reason for the drop the year before? Hulu?
On Tuesday, Kimmel blamed the streaming service for the Oscars’ problems after Trump criticized the awards on Twitter.
“Trump loves saying the ratings are down as if to insinuate that’s some sort of show of support for him, but the truth is, every year since Netflix happened, the ratings for every big TV show are down—Super Bowl, Grammys, Emmys, Golden Globes,” Kimmel said. “But Trump thinks he caused the ratings to go down.”
Kimmel doesn’t want to admit that Trump is right. But, you buck Trump, and there is hell to pay.
Starbucks and the NFL will certainly validate this. Both these entities took a beating after bucking Trump. Why would Kimmel think things would be any different.
Kimmel got lucky in his career. I’m not sure who “Weinsteined” him, but he’s only moderately talented; amusing at best.
But more recently, Kimmel has gone from amusing to pathetic, as he cries on his show about Obamacare and other political issues. Does he really think that’s what his audience came to see?
Amy Schumer pulled the same stunt, and a third of her audience walked out on her. I bet they never return. One would think that President Trump’s supporters have proven that we back him, because his policies make sense.
Yet, hacks like Kimmel persist. They believe they continue to live in the insane Era of Obama. However, Americans abandoned Obama, and rightfully so. And little by little, the Kimmels of the world are getting the message.
I asked the question on my radio show, “Have more Democrats left the party or Republicans?” You know the answer, and that is why Kimmel, the Oscars, the NFL, the NBA, CNN and many other Leftists organizations feel the heat.
Kimmel will find things only get tougher for him in 2018 and beyond.
Frankly, I know his career is on the decline. I give him 2 years max, and he will be replaced. Because he no longer knows how to be unbiased and funny. That’s what Leftism does to people. Here’s what Eric Fettmann of the New York Post wrote of Kimmel recently:
Culture critic: Jimmy Kimmel’s Sad Transformation
Late-night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel is “unrecognizable in his current form,” contends Christian Toto at his Hollywood In Toto site, having traded in his “bratty young comic” persona for that of “a hard-left comic with little empathy for those who lean to the right.” It began with “a heartfelt tale tied to his ailing newborn” and has gotten “more pointed and partisan” ever since. He reportedly even “sought out the counsel of Sen. Chuck Schumer . . . before one energized monologue. Now, he says, “almost every talk show host is a liberal, and that’s because it requires a level of intelligence.” In Kimmel’s case, though, what we see is someone who’s “arrogant, self-satisfied [and] finger-wagging.”
Wait until Leftists, correction…former Leftists leave Kimmel. Many already have.
I asked Google how many viewers late-night talk show host Johnny Carson had.
The last time “The Tonight Show” drew more viewers for a week came well before the era of DVR time-shifting, as the final week of Johnny Carson’s run in May 1992 averaged a whopping 19.453 million viewers.
All the late night comedic hacks COMBINED don’t add up to Carson’s numbers.
This chart pretty much says it all about the influence of Kimmel and the like on public opinion.
