Ratings for the Golden Globes awards show utterly cratered Sunday, falling 64 percent over last year. In fact, more people watched Trump’s CPAC speech than the Globes!
This year’s Globes show was an absolute disaster ratings-wise. The show was hosted by Saturday Night Live alums Tina Fey and Amy Poehler who claimed ahead of the show that it would not be political. But they lied. Several of the winners lapsed into political harangues.
With the numbers all in, it looks like the Globes only earned 6.9 million viewers this year.
The show did far better last year with 18.3 million viewers when comedian Ricky Gervais took a swipe at the Hollywood.
“So, if you do win an award tonight, don’t use it as a platform to make a political speech,” Gervaise said. “You’re in no position to lecture the public about anything. You know nothing about the real world. Most of you spent less time in school than Greta Thunberg. So, if you win, come up, accept your little award. Thank your agent and your god, and f*** off!”
On the other hand, President Donald Trump drew an incredible 31 million viewers for his speech at CPAC last Sunday.
President Trump’s speech at #CPAC2021 eclipsed 31 million live viewers on social media.
