Poppy Bush Special a Ratings Bomb for NBC

Tuesday, March 29, 2011

A syrupy confection to honor former President George HW Bush titled All Together Now: A Celebration of Service was a ratings bomb for NBC and proved no match for ABC’s juggernaut, Dancing with the Stars, which crushed the cornpone event.

The special, filmed at the Kennedy Center on March 21 and meant to highlight Poppy Bush’s devotion to volunteerism, was about as popular as a case of swine flu.

Co-chaired by former president Bill Clinton, with musical entertainment by Carrie Underwood, Garth Brooks, Cee Lo Green, Sheryl Crow, Kid Rock, and Poppy’s close friend, Reba McEntire but all the star power in the world did nothing to help the terrible ratings.

The hour-long extravaganza managed a paltry 0.9 rating in the all-important 18-49 year old demographic with a miniscule 4.2 million viewers overall compared to ABC’s Dancing with the Stars which dominated the timeslot averaging 22.3 million viewers.

Even Univision’s Spanish language novela Eva Luna crushed NBC’s All Together Now: A Celebration of Service in the ratings.

    Poppy would’ve had to put a gun to my head to force me to watch this drivel. The Bush clan is gone and I want to forget their existence and all the harm they caused this nation and the American people. Especially, Poppy’s dope-of-a-son, George Jr. Those were dark years I want to forget.

    I’m sure the Koch Brothers reimbursed Comcast/NBC for any revenue losses they took as a result of showcasing this war criminal.

    I was going to say Comcast/NBC should be ashamed of itself but, then I remembered who I am talking about.

    Pere Chimpy’s “service” has been mostly to his cronies and himself.

    And yet, he was still 500 times preferable to his spawn.

    Of all the strange things the man who pitched “the thousand points of light” brought to the presidency (I still don’t know what the hell that meant??), his biggest offense is as JR points out, having his evil spawn, Bush 2, “the decider” & his Mission Accomplished freak show, drove this country to ruin for 8 long & miserable years.

    We just entered the beginning of the 9th year of the Iraq war.
    Will the history books report this accurately?

    Quagmire Accomplished.

    As for Poppy, nobody wants to read his lips anymore.

    Poppy Bush did do one thing right. He signed the Americans with Disabilities Act in 1991. This landmark act created laws making access to the disabled mandatory and established a federal list of diseases and conditions that were long recognized as true, disabilities allowing for access to Social Security.
