If TV ratings are any indication, younger voters are more interested in “Robot Chicken” and “Teen Mom Season 6” than they are Hillary Clinton.
The Democratic presidential candidate’s appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” Monday night scored a paltry 0.4 rating among viewers 18-49, The Wrap reports.
The site reported:
The former first lady and potential future President of the United States guested on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” last night, but the initial Nielsen panel wasn’t impressed. As a matter of fact, NBC’s “Late Night With Seth Meyers” actually managed to tie the hour-earlier ABC talk show in the 25 markets with local people meters.
Both shows managed a 0.4 rating Monday night in the key 18-49 demographic, per the very early metric.
But to give a better idea of the attitudes of that 18-49 voting bloc, look at the ratings of other shows on the same day.
Clinton’s appearance — which culminated in the candidate opening a jar of pickles (which appeared to be pre-opened as it lacked the classic “pop” sound) to prove she’s healthy — was trumped by a 12:00 am showing of “Robot Chicken” on Adult Swim, according to TV By The Numbers.
That scored a 0.5, as did a 9:30 pm showing of “Love & Hip Hop Hollywood 3,” a re-run of “Friends” at 11:30 pm, as well as a 12:45 am screening of “Squidbillies.”
An 11:30 pm showing of “Bob’s Burger’s” on Adult Swim scored a 0.7, as did MTV’s “Teen Mom Season 6.”
As for those that rated the same as Clinton’s segment, here’s the list published by TV By The Numbers:
Most interestingly, an equal share of viewers tuned in to see “Mike Tyson Mysteries” as did Hillary Clinton’s appearance on a supposedly top-rated late night show.
