Time to pour one out for MTV…
That's because numbers just came in for the annual music video awards show… and it turns out people DO NOT enjoy sitting through 3-hour events without a host to guide them along.
If they complained about her numbers last year with 9.8 million viewers, they're not gonna be happy about the measly 6.5 million people they managed to attract this time around. And that was on an 11-channel simulcast!
With that said, we don't think this has to do with star power or content as much as it does the current state of television… but still, not a great a sign.
Do U think the VMAs will splurge on a host in 2017??
