Ratings: Season Finale of HBO's 'Girls' Flops
Breitbart - Big Hollywood ^ | 24 Mar 2014, 1:55 PM PDT | John Nolte

Posted on 03/24/2014 7:34:36 PM PDT by Hoodat

Deadline Hollywood puts the best spin they can on the disastrous season finale ratings for HBO's impossibly low-rated series "Girls." Deadline calls the a dismal 670,000 viewers "steady." Yeah, "steady" in the same way the Titanic steadily sank. After three airings Sunday night, "Girls" averaged only a million viewers.

If you are looking for a reference point, the season finale of "True Detective" averaged 11 million viewers.

Not beholden to ratings, and obviously eager to not the pop the bubble of a small group of elite urban provincials who have spent three years trying to convince themselves "Girls" is not a catastrophic flop, HBO renewed "Girls" for a fourth season.

Star and creator Lena Dunham once again benefits from HBO's affirmative action program for exhibitionist, left-wing one-percenters.

HBO obviously isn't going for ratings here, but is more interested in pushing an agenda.

Does this mean that Lena Dunham is going away?

Unfortunately, no. Even though the ratings are in the toilet, HBO just signed her up for a fourth season.

Ronan Farrow is MSNBC’s Lena Dunham.
Agendas, not ratings keep, them on the air.

Brasilian soap operas used to be considered a form of torture in Europe and throughout South America. I’ve seen them, I know it was true in the 90’s. Not so much now.

I did see five minutes of “girlz” though. A slovenly, fat cottage cheese ball with questionable hygiene who sleeps around does not a series make. It’s a viable diarrhetic in its current form, but it’s not entertainment. I’d submit that we have once again excelled past Brasil, and not in a good way.

Maybe in the Fourth Season she’ll fulfill her greatest dream and...get it on with her clone.

My cable company had a free HBO weekend and I had the unfortunate experience of watching part of an episode. Lena Dunham joins Miley Cyrus and Justin Beiber to make a trash trifecta.

Working on a project, I had the misfortune of being stuck in a hotel for seven weeks that offered six HBO channels. At any given moment, at least two (and usually more) of those channels had on either this show, the gay show (don’t know the name), or Bill Maher. It isn’t about ratings. It is about indoctrination.

Finally, Lena Dunham’s career is over. She’ll be in a house of ill repute in no time.

For some oddball reason the libs who run HBO think a show about whiny, big city, lib females and their pathetic lives would be interesting to people not remotely like big city, whiny, lib females. Showtime isn’t much better. They regularly put on sex-themed series focusing on homosexuals believing the rest of the country is obsessed with the lives of those weirdos.

Yeah, there sure alot of weiners in that show, which is surprising, and not at all like the book. I was just told that there are alot less of those scenes in the second season, which I haven’t watched yet.

Well, it’s not porn, so that shouldn’t be an issue. I had a big problem with the whole “Khal Drago/Daenerys “consummation” as it were.
But Martin set this series up based on The WAr of the Roses, and it’s really good. I’m loving on Queen Cersei right now.
Lena Heady is fabulous and there are not enough kudos to give to the always awesome Natalie Dormer.

The way we can put a stop to this agenda driven programming is to force the Cable and Satelite providers to provide al-a-carte programming.

You shouldn’t care, but she’s the writer of the show. I think. She’s a big deal among the naked tattooed pierced idiot crowd.

Why do ratings matter to HBO anyway as long as they have the subscribers. HBO get so much free publicity from this show because the “right” people in the Northeast Corridor and West Coast watch it. HBO probably does not give a fig that nobody west of I-95 or east of I-5 watches.

Thanks for the reinforcement — I kinda knew that she was as nobody, and that I shouldn’t care.

I guess you didn't read the first three words of my first response, "You shouldn't care."

I'll say it a couple of more times so you don' miss it. "You shouldn't care." "You shouldn't care." "You shouldn't care." "You shouldn't care." "You shouldn't care." "You shouldn't care." "You shouldn't care." "You shouldn't care."
