Great Night For Miss America, Not So Much For Daytime TV

| Filed under: TV News

It's not that surprising, but still a bit disappointing.

Sunday night, the 2011 Miss USA competition dominated the network competition by nabbing 7.25 million viewers and a 2.2 rating. That's a 57 percent increase from last year and the pageant hasn't seen those kind of numbers since 2005. Yay!

The same unfortunately could not be said for the Daytime Emmys. The two hour long ceremony brought in only 5.4 million viewers and plunged 27 percent from last year’s demo numbers. Whomp, whomp!

Looks like not even a stellar tribute to Oprah could save that sinking ship. Sad!

    why do people even watch this crap at all?? its just a bunch of dumb bimbos with fake hair, fake boobs , fake tan , layers of make up and botox smiles parading around pretending they have talent .

    The trailer park culture loves beauty pageants and reality shows.

    Let's look at it in a different way-according to the 2010 census there were 308,745,538 in the United States. Plus whoever that didnot. So 7+Mill watched Miss USA and 5+mill watched the Daytime Emmys So, 2.3% of the population were watching Miss USA and 1.7% of the population were watching the DAYTIME EMMYS. HARDLY A WHOMP WHOMP! What were the other 96% doing? or WATCHING? And YEARS AGO, the DAYTIME EMMYS werre ON DURING THE DAY-when the viewers WATCHED TV. Makes better sense.

    Re: Hairplugs for Hilton – It seems, unfortunately, MOST OF AMERICA, the way people reply to varios posts across the web-LOVE THOSE REALITY SHOWS! Check out the different station FORUMS and see how protective some get of these shows-esp. SISTER WIVES, MY BIG FAT GYPSY WEDDING, the BACHLORETTE, etc etc etc. You would think they were part of the show.

    That's not Miss America, that's Miss USA. Dur… And I agree with TEAMJOLIE.

    Where was the publicity for it? I didn't even know it was going to happen! I would have watched it!

    Re: justtfax – Reality shows have become a way of life in America, don't know if any other country has this fascination but these shows have contributed to the dumbing-down of society. And Hilton promotes the worst of them - Toddlers/Tiaras, Sister Wives, Paris Hilton etc. He posts about how awful it is for one of the contestants on Toddlers to go on tour but hasn't a second thought taking their money to advertise here. TV has become a wasteland, I watch very little anymore.

    I watched for 15 minutes and learned: 1. I feel sorry for the state of Tennessee. Miss Tennessee was a freaking embarrassment. Dumb as rocks. 2. Giuliana Rancic is a mess. Who wears a brown turtleneck dress on the Miss America pageant?? And her hair looked like a 14-year-old from the 80's styled it. I won't feel sorry for her when eating disorder puts her in rehab.

    MISS USA - says it right on her chest, not MISS AMERICA, doesn't someone proof any of this shit?!

    The networks (ie ABC) fail to understand that while TVs may be dialed to the talk garbage they air by day, nobody really cares about those shows. At least before they started getting rid of the soaps, they had loyal viewers. The numbers will sink further by 2013 after the last real soap nominees are off the air for good.

    Re: T.E.A.M.J.O.L.I.E – Sounds like every reality show.

    Re: Hairplugs for Hilton – i think society has always been this stupid, it's just now the cameras are rolling to cash in on it.

    SHE LOOKS HIGHLY BALL-ABLE. I WOULDNT MIND NUTTING HER

    You should adjust the title. The Miss America Pageant is a completely different competition, and works is a very different way. She is Miss USA NOT Miss America.

    The Daytime Emmys ended two years ago…this embarrassing is nothing but a Vegas Infomercial seriously most daytime fans have admitted after this year that we don't want this televised anymore daytime works to hard to have to sit through ridiculous Vegas stunts and achievement awards being given to someone who doesn't even bother to show up. It was a slap in the face to hard working people. Seriously they should just leave it untelevised, have it at a hotel and be done with it, at least they would have some dignity…did anyone watch that mess? It was awful I used to love the Daytime Emmys because they were classy, over the top, fun, they showcased the actors, writers, directors of soaps but also game shows, kids shows, judge shows. Judge Judy is the number one ratings winner for daytime but her category was forced into the "Technical Awards" because there wasn't enough room thanks to all the filler crap they didn't even show the nominees work…just a huge slap in the face.
