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.

Social Justice Fail: Record-Low Ratings for MTV’s Joyless Video Music Awards

If MTV thought the promise of a Sunday night Trump-Hate-Athon (which we all knew was coming) would draw eyeballs, the leftwing music network was sadly mistaken. In fact, the promise of such a hyper-politicized spectacle appears to have turned people away in droves. Simply put, the final ratings are not only a disaster, they hit an all-time low.
