Shocker! Golden Globes special tanks in ratings

Maybe NBC should have gone with American Gladiators instead. The Peacock’s two-hour Dateline, followed by an Access Hollywood-like special on the Golden Globes, averaged a mere 5.8 million viewers Sunday night, bad enough to put the network in the dismal fourth-place spot for the night. Meanwhile, Fox was the big winner: The debut of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, which benefited from a huge NFL playoff game lead-in, attracted a whopping 18.3 million viewers and helped boost Fox to an evening-high average of 21.9 million viewers from 7-10 p.m., followed by CBS (13.2 million), ABC (10.8 million), and NBC (4.7 million).

    Congratulations to the WGA for their success in ending such nonsense shows!!! The WGA is what will persuade many Americans of how television and film programming needs to change, so that WGA writers are never needed again.

    Alrighty then J, let’s ask you the million-download question: what television programs do you watch? C’mon, don’t be shy, fess up.

    Maybe ABC will take this as a clue and just cancel the Oscar telecast in time to schedule something worthwhile. Honestly, if the people in the film and TV businesses don’t care enough about this to get their collective acts together, why should anyone else care?

    I was wondering if we can also cancel the Super Bowl, World Series, NBA Championships, and NCAA Final Four.
    I’m sorry, but some of us REALLY look forward to award season — just like some of us look forward to sporting events. NONE of them matter in the long run, but they matter to their fans when they happen.
    No one is saying the Oscars change the world, but dammit I want them!
