The Emmys drew their lowest ratings in the 68 year history of the show, which means people might be coming around. On the negative side that means 11.4 million idiots still watched them. This appears to be a pretty cut and dry situation. The shows on TV suck, so people don’t care as much about the pointless awards which are dolled out in circle jerk fashion. The self congratulatory snooze fest was hosted by Jimmy Kimmel and aired on ABC. Everybody is anorexic or fat, which mirrors America, but not enough so to make it interesting.
Most of the awards went to non-network shows on HBO, such as Game of Thrones and Game of Thrones Dallas. Highlights included a bunch of dumb actors and actresses giving speeches while the seat warmers rolled their eyes and got shit faced. The new OJ Simpson show on FX won nine Emmys, which is amazing considering it was actually completely awful, and, spoiler alert, OJ got away with slicing off the head of his ex-wife and an ambitious young waiter who was hitting on her. You’re paying a hundred bucks a month for Bill O’Reilly and The View. You can stream live sporting events. Time to cut the cord. The numbers don’t lie.
