According to this, the VMA’s literally dropped 50% in viewership this year. People are claiming it’s because of the DNC, which is probably true, but it has to be the staleness of the show. It’s not fun to watch an award show about music videos on a channel that only plays these videos in the morning hours when normal people sleep, or even worse are watching news. Personally, I watch sports at that time.
Kevin Hart wasn’t that funny in the bits I saw. The Dwight Howard 3 minute saga was an absolute eye-sore for comedy. We get that Kevin Hart is short. The only defining moment of the VMA’s was Taylor Swift’s legs. That song she “performed” was awful.
