Jimmy Kimmel, host of the Jimmy Kimmel Live! show, has ratings that are in the TANK. A very deep and lonely tank, too! The comedian’s numbers are SO low that they do not even show up on the Top 26 of the ABC Season ratings list which is compiled by Ratings © 2018 The Nielsen Company.
Kimmel’s late night show is on ABC. And since the new Roseanne sitcom which is Trump friendly is also on ABC. Guess what spot she is in? (This is going to go just like you think.) Roseanne takes the NUMBER ONE spot! (MORE BELOW.)
The JOKES on Kimmel!
It appears Kimmel is struggling with his constant negative messaging about President Trump. He is backing off his lack of love for the office of the President of the United States of America.
“In an interview with Deadline, Kimmel was asked whether he had prepared a “barrelful of barbs” for President Trump in his upcoming standup routine for ABC’s upfronts. (MORE BELOW.)
“Oh, wow. Yeah, you know, I hadn’t really thought about it that way, but I guess you’re right. Hopefully, it’ll be the last upfront of the Trump era, too,” Kimmel said.
“So, I don’t know, I don’t know how much focus there will be on that. I think people have had an ass-full of Donald Trump, and I feel like the upfront is a time to look within and make fun of ourselves,” Kimmel said of his comedy routine for the annual event that sees major advertisers gather to purchase airtime on networks, like ABC, ahead of the summer and fall TV seasons.”
In the Deadline interview, the late night host reveals why he may have failed so badly in the ratings! Jimmy says, “Sometimes there is such low-hanging fruit, you have to choose between 12 jokes on one subject, and picking the right ones is something I obsess over,” Jimmy Kimmel admits about his preparation for his annual sardonic stand-up routine during ABC’s upfront presentation.” (MORE BELOW.)
Then Kimmel continues and rats himself out! Seems like he thinks he’s Donald J. Trump! But only POTUS can tweet late night with accuracy. No-one, and especially, not Kimmel can take on the attributes of the President and make it work seamlessly the way that Pres Trump can!
Kimmel says, “Then I’ve found too that, almost inevitably, my best jokes come to me around 3 in the morning when I’m sitting there alone.” WRONG! Kimmel, if you think your best jokes cause your ratings to dive then you have another THINK coming!
Earlier in April, Brietbart reports on a phone interview Kimmel had with Oprah. One of the questions she asked Kimmel was, “Do you worry about the people who don’t agree with your political views? National Review said you were “misleading Americans…and clouding the debate” over gun violence. What do you say to critics?
During the interview, he later admits that his BAD JOKES have caused his ratings to nose dive into oblivion! He says, “And according to polls I’ve seen, it has cost me commercially. That’s not ideal, but I wouldn’t change anything I said.”
