  • TV Ratings: Video Music Awards Hit an All-Time Low on MTV

    Hollywood Reporter ^ | 21 Aug 2018 | Rick Porter
    For the second straight year, the MTV Video Music Awards drew its smallest audience ever. Monday's show drew 2.25 million viewers and a 1.1 rating among adults 18-49. Across eight Viacom-owned channels, it drew 4.87 million viewers and a 2.2 in the demo; both sets of numbers fall short of the 2017 VMAs, which set the previous low. The awards also aired on a ninth Viacom network, TV Land, for which numbers weren't immediately available. It's highly unlikely, however, that enough people tuned in there to push the VMAs past their 2017 on-air total of 5.36 million viewers and 2.6...

    The 2018 VMAs took a hit Monday night, sinking 6 percent in the key adults 18-49 demographic compared to last year’s simulcast, according to numbers from Nielsen. That marks another record low for the MTV awards show, which went host-less this year. More to come…

    While presenting at the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards, Kevin Hart told the audience they were "allowed to kneel" seemingly referencing how NFL players have been kneeling out of protest during the national anthem. "This game you're allowed to kneel," Hart said while presenting with fellow comedian Tiffany Haddish. He continued: "You can do whatever you want there's no old white men to stop you." Hart, 39, also said the award show was like "a typical day at the White House." “Beefs pop off, bad language, people run to the bathroom and send out crazy tweets,” Hart said. "It's basically...

    "Jurassic World" actor Chris Pratt accepted the Generation Award at this year's MTV Movie & TV Awards which aired Monday night and used the platform to share nine points of advice that were humorous and offered strong Christian guidance. Pratt, 38, was introduced to the stage by two of his co-stars, Bryce Dallas Howard ("Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom") and Aubrey Plaza ("Parks and Recreation"). Pratt first honored his family and said that while they didn't have a lot growing up, they always enjoyed being together. "This being the Generation Award, I'm going to cut to the chase and I'm going...

    Production has shut down on Catfish as MTV looks into sexual misconduct allegations against Nev Schulman — but this isn’t the first time he’s been accused of inappropriate behavior. Schulman, 33, was expelled from Sarah Lawrence College after allegedly punching a woman at a school dance in 2006.

    Hillary Clinton has been known to make huge sums in speaking fees, but Thursday’s reported payment may sound like she was short-changed. Clinton was paid $25,000 to speak at Rutgers University about being targeted as a woman in politics, the upcoming elections and the Trump administration, among other topics, NJ.com reported. But the money she made seemed to be considerably less than some other high-profile guests who've spoken at the New Jersey school. For example, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, of “Jersey Shore” fame, was paid $32,000 for her Rutgers appearance in 2011. Students paid for her appearance using money from the...

    Late-night talk show host Jimmy Fallon teamed up with MTV and the NAACP to send busloads of protesters to take part in Saturday’s student march for gun control. MTV announced that it had joined the left-wing civil rights group and a list of celebrities, including Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez, and NBA star Carmelo Anthony, to send “17 busloads of youth” to the gun control march kicking off:

    A few weeks ago we asked our readers to vote for their least favorite songs from the 1990s, so it was the obvious next move to dial it back 10 years and see what you guys hated in the 1980s. The results are sure to infuriate a lot of people. For the record, I personally disagree with most of these selections. In fact, I love a lot of these songs... 10. Rick Astley - 'Never Gonna Give You Up'... 9. Taco - 'Puttin' On The Ritz'... 8. Toni Basil - 'Mickey'... 7. Bobby McFerrin - 'Don't Worry Be Happy'... 6....

    To offer a corporate tribute to a national school walkout for gun-control measures, Viacom -- which owns several major cable networks -- "will suspend regularly scheduled programming for 17 minutes" at 10 am on Wednesday. Liberal student activists will take over MTV's Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat accounts. MTV, VH1, Logo, Comedy Central will have orange (the color of gun violence prevention) logos until the "March for Our Lives" on March 24. Their press release is headlined "Viacom to Support Courageous Youth Activists Who Have Had Enough of Gun Violence." Or one could suggest "Viacom to Stick It to the NRA."

    Maybe it’s the proliferation of social media in our daily lives that has exposed us to this insanity, but we’ve seriously gone off the deep end. For some abortions rights supporters apparently, the Florida shooter wouldn’t have been able to commit this tragic crime if his birth mother had aborted him. That’s what Israeli-American reporter and former MTV Europe VJ Becky Griffin insinuated on Twitter. Woman puts baby up for adoption, he grows up to be a violent young man who will spend the rest of his life in prison for a mass murder. Tell me more about how abortions...

    Ahead of November concert, the British pop sensation says the online pressure to cancel doesn't faze him. Boy George is just being true to himself. The iconic British pop singer is excited to return to Israel for his upcoming concert with his band, Culture Club, and doesn't seem to bat his impressive eyelashes at BDS pressure not to perform. "We have to be really careful with the Internet because people say everyone is talking - it's like five people, they're retweeting each other," he told Israel's Channel 2 News in an interview this week, "and that doesn't constitute a revolution."...

    Twenty-five years ago, when MTV played mostly videos, defeated presidential candidate Patrick J. Buchanan delivered his “Culture War” speech before the Republican National Convention on August 17 at the Houston Astrodome, where he feared for the “soul of America.” Twenty-five years later, when conservatives have ceded all control of the culture war to the Left, MTV’s Video Music Awards (VMAs, itself a bizarre oxymoron for an outlet that plays no videos) is now a forum about politics and the course of the country. Conservatives should watch more MTV. Take heed Buchanan’s observations. And fight back. ...

    A descendant of Gen. Robert E. Lee has stepped down as pastor of his North Carolina church after facing blowback from parishioners and others for his comments denouncing racism and lauding the Black Lives Matter movement. As a minister and newspaper columnist, Robert W. Lee IV, the fourth great-nephew of the Confederate general, has spoken and written countless words, but the five sentences he uttered during MTV's Video Music Awards last week were just too much for some members of his congregation. ... Lee, who was pastor at Bethany United Church of Christ in Winston-Salem, has long supported removing monuments...

    The MTV Video Music Awards are always a big night for pop music, but were also dominated by political statements at a fiery show in Los Angeles. Artists spoke out against white supremacy and urged suicide awareness during the awards on Sunday night. Transgender military personnel attended, days after President Donald Trump signed a directive to ban them. Kendrick Lamar was the night's big winner, picking up six awards including video of the year for HUMBLE. The video, directed by Dave Meyers, takes a wry look at the rapper's growing fame and sees him dressing up as a pope and...

    Elton John told an audience at the Cannes Film Festival on Monday that the MTV generation had promoted many musicians who didn’t deserve the attention, but he also paid tribute to the positive role that music videos have played in the music business. John, who was on-stage with his long-term song-writing partner Bernie Taupin, said: “We were before the MTV generation and I’m glad we were because we were real artists. The MTV generation brought along a lot of people who were great but a lot of people who just made videos. So a lot of the artistry went out...

    IWB ^ | Mark Angelides
    As expected, the media lapped up the idea of MTV giving out a Gender neutral Award; the LGBTQ (i?) groups are enthralled at the idea that people would finally be judged equally regardless of their gender. But the problem is… it’s nonsense. It will do nothing to promote “the genderless society”. It will in fact, end up creating larger divisions than before. As so often is the case, social engineering by agenda driven idiots, has idiotic results. If we look at every other mainstream awards ceremony (let’s not actually watch the drivel, just a glance at the results will suffice),...

    It's only the second week of 2017, but it's already been a banner year for preening liberals on cable TV who are hell-bent on self-immolation in the name of proving everyone else's moral inferiority. To use young people's slang these days, you're "lit," media progressives. But not in a good way. On Tuesday, just before the confirmation hearing for Attorney General nominee and Alabama GOP Sen. Jeff Sessions kicked off, an MTV News reporter demonstrated his high and mighty commitment to racial tolerance ... by mocking Sen. Sessions' half-Asian granddaughter. Sessions' daughter, Ruth, is married to Asian-American John Walk. They...

    Ira Madison III, an MTV News culture writer and host, mocked Sen. Jeff Sessions’ Asian-American grandchildren on Twitter Tuesday morning. Sessions appeared before the U.S. Senate Committee on the Judiciary Tuesday to give testimony in connection with his nomination by President-elect Donald Trump to serve as attorney general. Sessions was accompanied by many members of his family, including his four Asian-American grandchildren. The senator’s daughter, Ruth Sessions Walk, is married to John Walk, an Asian-American man. Madison accused Sessions of stealing his grandchildren from Toys “R” Us for the hearing. He went on to call his grandchildren a “prop,” brought...
