Few People Watched the Stupid Spike VGAs
Being that I hate the Spike VGAs, I thanked my water bottle today for small favors once I learned how the show did in the ratings Saturday night. The results were, uh, poor, and it looks like most of the people watching were, in fact, us. Even the very late addition of Neil Patrick Harris to the proceedings couldn’t save it.
Variety says the show managed to muster a mere 627,000 viewers, which is actually 20,000 fewer than last year’s stupid show, and that one didn’t even benefit from new Mass Effect 3 and Uncharted 3 trai-lers. Seriously, though, this is good news for everyone. The masses realized this show is a sham and that they can watch the trailers online after they sober up, and that way they don’t have to suffer through Dane Cook being on their televisions.
Hey, Spike, maybe you should try to shake things up next year. You know, by not having a fake awards show.
