Re-Runs Of The Big Bang Theory Beat Out Jay Z & Beyoncé's HBO Ratings With Ease! Too Much Hype Surrounding The Concert Special??

Was the excitement all just smoke and mirrors…??

Because it seems like re-runs of Sheldon Cooper and the cast of The Big Bang Theory beat out Jay Z and Beyoncé's EPIC On The Run tour special in the ratings game on Saturday night!

The HBO feature, advertised on billboards and in commercials, only pulled in around 888,000 viewers during the east coast 9PM showing — while BBT repeats captured the public at 2,790,000 million views.

While some would call it a flop, we really can't compare the two shows, since one is on a premium network people pay extra for, and the other is basic cable!

So we decided to put Jay and Bey's number's up against HBO's last wildly popular airing — which just so happens to be True Blood 's series finale.

The vampy show brought in a cool 4 million viewers to the network, leaving the popular couple's concert in the dust!

Now, we get that a singing special and a scripted series are still very different, but we really thought more people would turn out to see Yoncé and her man live…

Considering they've been at the forefront of tabloid rumors questioning their marriage!

Encore, on-demand and HBO Go plays have not been taken into account just yet, but we have a feeling the final tally is going to be nowhere near 4,000,000!

    Their whole life is smoke and mirrors.

    Good, I've been saying all along that this was garbage.

    More proof that no one cares!

    Without Mathew Knowles the Truth comes out. Beyonce may or may not have realized that her father was bribing the media and people in the industry. This is a reflection of their actual popularity. She should have bought all of her fans subscriptions to HBO.
    I don't know anyone who doesn't roll their eyes at these people. Everyone is disgusted. They will go down in History as the most attention grubbing envious greedy people who kept real music and real artistry from the mainstream.

    I didn't watch it and personally it was because not only am I sick of them but Beyonce sang every song off her last album for the VMAs so I really didn't miss much. More gyrating and more leotards. SO freaking what?

    Could it be that the aren't as popular as the people on the coasts would lead you to believe? I'd rather watch a boil fester than those two perform any day.

    FACT: NO DOCUMENTARY DOES TRUE BLOOD NUMBERS ON HBO.

    Beyoncé's documentary 'Life Is But A Dream' is one for the ratings record book for the HBO and OWN networks attracting 1.8 and 1.3 million viewers, respectively.
    The documentary, which was directed, executive produced and written by Beyoncé, is HBO’s most-watched feature in nearly a decade,

    Re: fabulousdivabuns – You may need your father to run your business but Yonce's is grown ass woman who is doing quite well hers taking her money. This all happened after Beyonce' dropped Dec 13, 2013.

    Double platinum US -Beyoncé (2,072,735 total)
    WW sales: Beyoncé (3,438,000 total)

    OTR tour was a success, grossing over $100 million in the first 19 North American shows alone, as well as attendance topping 850,000.

    This tour was too racy for the fat part of the curve, who I'm certain curved out purposely. The cleaner Bey might have racked up better numbers, but it's what she's into now, so.

    I attempted to watch each time. However, there was always another show on HBO instead of what was supposed to be playing. Perhaps this was an inside job.

    Re: SA – When you say "written by Beyonce", do you mean that she changed a word or two so she could claim writer credits like she does on her songs?

  14. sa says – reply to this

    Re: rosebud99 – Whether it's 2 words or 1000 it makes good business sense to get writing credit.

    f we're not songwriters, and not hugely successful commercially (as in platinum-plus), we [recording artists] don't make a dime off our recordings.

    Songwriters and publishers, however, do earn royalties in these instances — as well as a small portion of the recording sales.

    The truth is that not everybody has HBO and anyone can watch a re-run on a basic air cable you get with a 5 dollar device. If I had HBO I would of seen it, but I don't. You cannot slam them for trying to promote this Perez, the show was incredible…I finally did get to see it thanks to a friend…but Perez…your reporting is slimy….cannot stand it.

    Too much hype? No. It's just no one cared. Of course they still win bc HBO paid. like the suckers they are. They didn't do their marketing research.

    Re: sa – You call it good business sense, I call it greedy and unethical.

    People did not watch because they are wondering just when these two will finally just go the fuck away.

    Re: rosebud99 – Capitalism is about making a profit. If she receives royalties well that's her 401K retirement plan. She's planning for her future.

    Re: sa – Oh please - the woman is worth millions and has been for a very long time - she does not need the money for her future. This is about ego and greed and it shows a complete lack of artistic integrity.

    People are sick of them…NO ONE cares about their money their friends, their gifts, their kid and her million dollar crib, people are sick of it. Maybe the media will finally get it through their thick skulls to stop covering these fame whores!

    Big Bang Theory and True Blood would've beaten Justin Timberlake's ratings. Justin Timberlake's concert only got 200k more viewers than On The Run. His concert was on a Labor Day Monday, which was a more cushy date and would've had less competition. The On the Run Tour was competing against 2 major college football games that were on FREE national broadcast tv. Plus, HBO did let everyone know that the concert would be airing for 24 hours the next day. People knew they had plenty of opportunities to watch it later if they didn't catch it on the original airing. Also, we don't know the viewership from the other streaming sources, like HBOGo.

    Re: James – exactly you have to PAY for HBO. so obviously basic cable that EVERYONE with a tv can get is gonna be more successful, but in comparison to other premium channels, OTR was a great success in the ratings, but you know the haters will be all like "nobody cares" instead of using knowledge most of them like rosebud are complete morons. Beyonce still slays your faves. Rosebud knows nothing about music or artistic integrity nor does she know anything about hem. hating ass bitch you areRe: rosebud99 – kill yourself, its not Beyonces fault your life is garbage

Re: lenny the shoopRe: fabulousdivabuns – you hussies are all dumb and have way too much hatred in your heart, i GARUNTEE you all watchedRe: Blobby – if no one cared about them their shows wouldn't have sold out in every city and they wouldn't be breaking music records the truth is that on a saturday who is watching HBO & on top of that not everyone has hbo. they had great ratings for a premium channel

    Re: @v@ – why does she need to rack up better numbers for a concert special? when that concert special is one of the best rating concert specials of all time. perez for some stupid ass reason is comparing it to Television series. so dumb. sRe: DJ – you clearly are NOT tired of hearing about them being that your reading this article and reading the comments pertaining to this article #SNATCHED

    you Beyhive fans love to sugarcoat BEYONCE"S flop moments. One FAN IS BRAGGING ON HER SELLING 3 million copies worldwide. AWITH ALL THE OVER EXPOSURE AND FREE PUBLICITY THAT ALBUM SHOULD BE NEARING 5 TO 6 MILLION COPIES. SINCE SHE IS BEYONCE AND ALL. AND LETS BE CLEAR ON THE HBO TOUR. THOSE NUMBERS ARE NO WHERE NEAR IMPRESSIVE– BEYONCE SHOULD HAVE PULLED MADONNA, MICHAEL AND JANET JACKSON HBO #'S.

    Re: Kedd – Bey album has been out less than 12 mos and even when it 4mil that's not gonna be enough for you.Stay pressed while she stay winning!

    Ok, Perez, you're talking about two different things. TrueBlood is a drama while Beyonce & Jay are certain type of music…. how can you compare those two???? We know you're looking for hype since your career is slowly flopping, but can you come up with some better juicy gossip? Literally Wendy is stealing your place LOL.

    Jayz and beyonce are getting old, so fast. They try too damn hard to be number one, and theyre still trying to be the best celebrity couple. TBH thier shit stinks, they try too hard… and they need to both just go the fuck away. Along with Kim k's plastic ass and Kanye's wierd ass.

    Not that I care about either of these people, the concert was on several of the HBO channels. Did they count all of them? I saw it on 3 of them in a row, it's ridiculous.
