MTV Awards Show Ratings Shoot Up with No Trump-Bashing, Politics

Ratings for the MTV Movie & TV Awards shot up this year even as many other such televised ceremonies have suffered recently. Notably absent from Sunday night’s event was the long anti-Trump screeds and liberal political harangues seen in similar awards shows — not to mention star Chris Pratt’s heartfelt speech about God’s grace.
