The Trump curse is now even truer than ever. On Tuesday, when President Trump was asked about the Taylor Swift's endorsement of two Democratic candidates in her home state of Tennessee, Trump told reporters: 'Let's say that I like Taylor's music about 25% less now, OK?'
It's now being reported that the American Music Awards lost 25% of its audience from last year -- an all time low. President Trump magically predicted this would happen.
The American Music Awards hit a new all-time low in the Nielsen ratings on Tuesday night.
ABC aired only the AMAs on Tuesday, with the three hour show drawing a 1.8 rating in adults 18-49 and 6.5 million viewers. That is down 25% in the key demo and approximately 29% in total viewers compared to the 2017 broadcast, which drew a 2.4 rating and 9.2 million viewers. 2017 and 2016 had previously set the demo low for the awards show, with both of those broadcasts drawing a 2.4. The AMAs also moved from Sunday in November for the first time in more than a decade this year.
This is the latest example of an awards show seeing serious declines year-over-year. Back in September, the Emmy Awards on NBC also put up an all-time low.
