The hits keep comin’ for Ellen DeGeneres.
This time, it’s in the type of SHOCKINGLY low rankings for her once-popular daytime juggernaut, The Ellen DeGeneres Show. And while it is summer season rerun time for practically all daytime talk programs, Ellen’s consisted of, you ‘d believe her previous supremacy of the marketplace integrated with a pandemic needing limitless self-isolation and stay-at-home quarantine orders would lead to reasonably strong viewership through completion of the summer season, best?! Nnnnnope!!!
According to Nielsen rankings released over at The Wrap, Ellen’s eponymous talk program drew a 1.0 Live + Same day home ranking for the last complete week in July, ending on the 26th of the month. That’s a 9% drop from the previous week’s duration AND a massive 29% decline from the exact same week last summertime!
That’s almost a 3rd of her audiences simply GONE!
That 29% decline isn’t a fluke, either; the previous week in July likewise saw a 27% decline from its equivalent 2019 equivalent, so something is ending up being extremely clear: reruns or not, individuals are turning Ellen off and tuning her out!
Is it the allegations of Ellen not being rather the great gal she paints herself as?
Surely it’s no coincidence it was that precise very same mid-July week where the greatest, most damning report of the talk program’s supposed hazardous environment was very first released for the world to check out. And it’s just worsened ever since as increasingly more staff members bring out their stories.
Looks like individuals are now voting with their tv remotes!
Ellen’s 1.0 ranking isn’t simply extremely little — — it’s in fact historical. For one, it connected the New Orleans local’s program with The Steve Wilkos Show, hosted by Jerry Springer‘‘ s campy previous head security personnel. Wilkos has never ever prior to connected Ellen in the rankings. Oops!!!
It likewise put Ellen simply behind Maury, which taped a 1.1 Live + Same Day score for long time host Maury Povich. It’s been at least 4 years considering that Maury’s talk program topped Ellen in the rankings — — which was just when DeGeneres’ program was eliminated from contention entirely since it had actually gone on hiatus throughout the 2016 Summer Olympics!
Again, it’s worth mentioning the summer season rerun caution here, however all programs are going through that today, and Ellen’s appears to be shedding audiences much faster than practically any other production. Significant mid-day programs like The Real and The Doctors are each down simply 20% year-to-year compared to their 2019 rerun rankings, well ahead of Ellen’s collapse.
Innerestingly, Dr. Phil is really doing even worse than the 62-year-old comic, falling 33% year over year relative to last summertime. What provides there ?! Maybe an outcome of his own scandal previously this year where he pretended to be a medical physician and provided actually bad coronavirus recommendations ?
Regardless, currently, Ellen is slated to return with brand-new programs in early September. It’ll be truly crucial to see how the scores fare then, as productions return for the fall and the embattled host and her personnel should return and acknowledge the horrible summer season they’ve had ……
