Ellen bounces back in Ratings; Drew Berrymore show faltering

I guess we’re looking at the syndicated TV ratings now like they’re the I Ching, just to see if Ellen DeGeneres will capsize.

She won’t. So forget it.

Second week back after a rocky first week, “The Ellen Show” was up 50% in total viewers, up to 1.2 million. It was the third highest ranked talk show, after “Dr. Phil” and “Live with Kelly and Ryan.” The audience doesn’t care about the toxic backstage stuff. “The Ellen Show” will keep growing. So much for that.

BTW she ranked fourth in the key demo, up 67% from week 1. Listen, Ellen made mistakes but she’s not stupid. She’s back, with a vengeance.

I’d be more concerned about Drew Barrymore. She was down 14% in her second week. The show grabbed 600,000 viewers. The show she replaced in many markets, “Hot Bench,” was steady at 1.7 million. Fans like my mother just went and found it wherever it’s playing. “Drew” seems like she’s taken too much Prozac. She also says mean things about her mother, which isn’t nice at age 45. Get over it, already.

Me? I’m really keen on Tamron Hall, who’s holding steady, doing a consistent, good job, has a raison d’etre, and was just renewed for a third season. Tamron was screwed by NBC and let go to make way for Megyn Kelly, who everyone hated and cost the network $69 million. Tamron got the last laugh.

Unfortunately Ellen isn't going anywhere anytime soon; she's a frau fave and fraus make for a super loyal fan base. Ellen would have to be caught stomping on a nest of baby ducklings while singing the Third Reich national anthem in order to lose their support.

"Talking Sopranos" is a new-ish YouTube channel featuring Michael Imperioli (Christopher) and Steven Schirripa (Bobby Baccala). Steve confirmed that Ellen was rude; Michael I. said Ellen was nice to him. Michael I. said that he, too, has it in his contracts that people (nobodies) on set can't look him in the eyes. The more episodes I watch (of "Talking Sopranos"), the more I think Michael Imperioli is a jerk. Steve Schirripa is more like a Datalounger, bitching about asshole people, naming names, etc.

The Drew Barrymore Show was a fascinating trainwreck to watch for a few weeks but now it’s lost it’s initial curiosity. It’s bad, bad. All the interviews become about her. She’s awkward with the host banter. The show is embarrassingly pandering with its mom focus.

This is a Chevy Chase Show level disaster but Drew has built up enough goodwill that people are being charitable towards it.

by Anonymousreply 3010/18/2020

Oh good. Then they can take Drew off and put HOT BENCH back on Channel 2 at 9AM!

by Anonymousreply 3110/18/2020

I think Ellen is autistic. Every move seems rehearsed with her and he never has a genuine back and worth with people. She can't seem to sense when people are getting uncomfortable in interviews and autism might explain how she treats her staff. Autistic people have empathy but they never really connect and have trouble processing their own emotions. Her jokes and Seinfeld-esque and he is an admitted aspie. Ellen being slightly robotic works well in the context of the show. She lets others shine and her personality doesn't overwhelm the audience. You never really get a sense of what she's like off camera. When you have someone who is the complete opposite, like Drew Barrymore, her "big" personality takes over and it become obnoxious. Everything becomes about Drew, Drew, Drew. She's an open book and you can tell she's like that all the time.

Ellen is a complete phoney on her show. Anyone who has anything to do with her in SoCal (from Montecito—->LA) knows of her cruel reputation. She treats human beings so poorly it is shocking that she has the gall to promote “kindness” on her show. It’s a complete farce.

Now she is selling her Montecito mansion due to cash flow issues. Remember she gave the moniker Monstercito to the area for her monster-like behaviour.

Only those she requires something from or clueless observers still consider her “likeable”.

I gave Drew's show a try last week. When she was expressing excitement about an upcoming celebrity appearance, she would make a loud, long, high-pitched scream. Kind of like a noise you might expect at a teen girl sleepover party. I couldn't take it, and I had to turn the channel.

The problem with Drew's show is bad timing. Every talk show feels awkward now with the social distancing and other Corona-19 safety measures. And as a newbie she doesn't know how to counter the awkwardness.

by Anonymousreply 5010/22/2020

Embrace the awkwardness, it could make for good conversation but the host has to be a quick thinker and be able to talk about wide ranging topics.

Drew isn’t that smart...she babbles or gushes.

by Anonymousreply 5210/22/2020

I think many of us wanted to like Drew's show, but as someone stated above, a talk show is not the proper platform for her. Maybe an occasional podcast, but not this format. It also doesn't help that she has no live audience to feed off of. Which means there's plenty of awkward silence as she nods and stares intently while listening to her guest, all the while thinking how to mention herself when she responds. God bless her and I love her, but I don't see a second season (or a Daytime Emmy) in her future.

it is excellent timing to have a talk show, there is very much to talk about, seriously or even not seriously.

The fact that we're socially distant makes for conversation that goes beyond:" It is like sooooo surreereeeeallll"!

These types of shows are a relic of the 1980s.

Drew struggles to fit into the mold of "talk show host" instead of creating a format that suits her.

I know she's a cunt and that her reputation as such was earned. The only thing that bugged me about her takedown is the 2,000,000 guys who've been doing this for years and got/get a pass. One lesbian fucks up? The townspeople grab their pitchforks and torches.

There's no excuse for Ellen's shitty personality and bad treatment of others. It just irritates me that all the guys get away with it and she's fucking crucified.

Yes, she's guilty - she is a bad, mean, selfish person. She treated her employees like fucking trash and got away with it for years because she has a hit show. When the shit hit the fan, her underlings went down and she's back on the air.

My POINT is that there is one fucking lesbian with a big show who is a cunt, there are 2 million nasty fucking sociopaths who have had shows over the years who are just as bad, if not worse, than Ellen. She gets crucified, they walk away unscathed.

It's not that she didn't deserve to get busted - she did. It's that they all deserve it too and almost all of them get a pass.

Right, because Matt Lauer and Charlie Rose and Nick Cannon and Megyn Kelly and Ed Henry and Bill O'Reilly and Nicolle Wallace and Marie Osmond and Tom Bergeron and Gretchen Carlson and Marc Lamont Hill and about a million others never got fired from their TV host jobs.

Several of those on that list were fired in revenge after THEY were screwed over, they themselves hadn't done much of anything wrong.

Ellen meanwhile still has her show and ratings and fans and everything is fine. She's not a victim. She wasn't fired. She didn't lose her job. She's not suffering anything but maybe some irritation over what happened.

So let's stop pretending like she's the victim of homophobia. These false claims of victimhood don't help us.

Sometimes before she goes to work, Ellen hides matchsticks around the house in obscure places to "check" that the army of cleaners is cleaning every nook and cranny, every day.
