Barbara Walters' Ratings Weren't So Fascinating…

| Filed under: TV NewsBarbara Walters

Sorry, Babs!

Maybe it was people protesting the Kardashians being on the list, maybe it was something else, but The Most Fascinating People of 2011 didn't fascinate by the numbers.

Barbara Walters reeled in 8.34 million viewers, scoring a 2.3 demo, but that's a whopping 30% down compared to last year's run!

Steve Jobs was number one, but we think enough people were miffed with the Kardashians being placed on the list, it might have turned some people off… wah-wah…

Whatevs, Babs is still one of the baddest bitches on the block!

    It's sad, Barbara Walters was an icon, but has stayed around too long, and has turned into a ninny. And I do not forgive her for putting the trashy Kardashians on the most fascinating list, and for defending them as well.



  2. 2

    BW has worked very hard for a long time to tarnish any credibility she ever had. I would never watch the Kartrash do anything. I don't find Katy Perry reprehensible but, interesting? On what planet?



  3. 3

    omg…your backhanded statements about the kardashians is NOT cute. getting to be very annoying.



  4. 4

    There should have been enough choices besides the trashy, loud-mouth, money grabbing Kardashians to fill up her program. It's time people stop watching them so they're no longer considered interesting.

    Associate yourself with the KarTRASHians and this is what happens. People are sick of them and ratings will be falling fast. The media shoved them down our throats and this is what happens when you are promoting untalented, media whores.

    I know I didn't watch because of the Trashy Karadians. Really shows NO class. :( Boo



  7. 7

    That is exactly why I did not watch her show. The Kardashian's 15 minutes is up….!!

    I didnt watch because she had The Trio of TRASH on there which leads me to this question. You recently posted how there show had gotten a 1.9 in the ratings which was just fabulous and shows how their fans were are so loyai and how they are not slipping int he ratings. Um how is a 1.9 better then a 2.3?

    DITTO….NO TO KRAPDASHIANS…….

    Re: Babycakes!!! – i was abouy to say something similar, you beat me to it

    Love her but I wouldn't watch because her choices this year had me thinking WTF?! Not just the lame-ass Kardashians but some of her other choices as well… Katy Perry, Donald Trump & Simon Cowell? I think she's confused on what year it is.



  13. 13

    It was on? Who knew? Who cared? Who cared to know? It held so little interest that no one cared to find out. Not how to go out, Babs. You blew it.

    I don't care how long she's been around, she does not tell me who is fascinating. They are not at all fascinating; they are pathetic. I did not watch, and in fact probably won't watch Babs again. She made a HUGE bad choice there, and now she is nothing but a sellout for money. Glad to see the posts here are just as sick of the K family as I am. I was losing faith in people.

    Blame it on TRUMP! Can't stand the Kartrarshians, but, just like bad car accident, couldn't help but look…



  16. 16

    As soon as I heard KarTRASHians, I knew I wasnt going to watch.

    They shouldn't have released the names of the people before airing the show. Everyone knew who was going to on the show and said what the heck ? Why are they or he/she facinating ? I didn't tune in and most people didn't either because of who was on. The time is come that she retires.
