Americans Aren’t Just Tuning Out The Olympics, Hollywood Is In A Panic
Americans aren’t just tuning out the “me” Olympics, they are tuning out Hollywood.
Primetime coverage of the Olympic games in Tokyo is down 56%, Americans are tuning out activists athletes and the woke storylines propagated by the media.
NBC’s Tokyo Olympics primetime coverage netted around 10.5 million linear viewers on Friday, the smallest audience of the games for the network so far. Over the same night of the Rio Olympics, NBC’s primetime viewership was down 56%.
NBC claimed 15.2 million total audience delivery for Friday night, with Peacock notching its best-ever Friday usage. According to the network, in TAD, its primetime coverage has now reached an audience of 15 million for the seventh day in a row.
Viewership was down though from Thursday, which marked the 2021 games’ second-most watched and second highest-rated day, bringing in an average of 16.2 million viewers.
Americans aren’t just tired of the virtue signaling at the Olympics, they are done with Hollywood.
The top movies this year are doing poorly.
So far, the number one film this year was called the “best well made bad movie ever.” Fast and Furious 9 was panned as “big and stupid as before.” The movie was in hot water after cast member, John Cena pandered to China because he dared to utter the word Taiwan.
Disney’s much anticipated Black Widow was also a colossal failure. The movie was dubbed “Too Long, Too Boring,” and too tedious.
At best, America’s third place movie, A Quiet Place 2 was called a “muffled sequel.”
Frankly, Americans are tired of stuff like, Disney “Muppet Babies” producer who hopes cross-dressing “Princess” Gonzo will “inspires kids” to be trans.
Producer Tom Warburton expressed his desire to D23.com for a show aimed at children aged 4 to 7:
Very early on, we wanted to do an episode where Gonzo just showed up to the Playroom wearing a skirt. And it was no big deal. No one cared or questioned it because Gonzo is always 200% Gonzo 347% of the time. But then story editor/co-producer Robyn Brown and her team wanted to take it a step further and do a Cinderella story based on the idea. And it was just SO wonderfully Gonzo. We hope he inspires kids watching to be 347% of themselves in their own way, too.
Americans are just turning this stuff off.
