NEW YORK – As a TV event, the fashion show of Victoria's Secret appears for the rest of the basket.
The show was burdened by bad advertising, bad reviews and bad numbers. After several years on CBS on Sunday's ABC show, the audience was the smallest with 3.27 million viewers since becoming a TV event during the holiday season in 2001, the company said. The show has lost more than half of its television audience in two years.
Models' underwear model runway style show seemed unsuitable for the #Metoo era and was injured when the company's marketing director said in an interview that there were no transgender or plus-size models, as Victoria & # 39; s Secret sold a fantasy. The company apologized later.
After one year at ABC in 2001, the show was migrated to CBS. Audience numbers ranged from 10.3 million in 2011 to 7.36 million in 2016, Nielsen said. However, in the past year, the number of viewers fell to 5.37 million, which led to a deduction of ABC.
A review of Sunday's Washington Post show was titled: "The Victoria's Secret fashion show is too boring to argue about at all."
"The whole hour was boring," wrote fashion critic Robin Givhan. "A slumber. A shrug. Oh my Lord, it was boring. "
Givhan wrote that the TV special was "such an event of agonizing clichés and non-sexiness that it is not worth a cultural revolution." It is a demolition. Or we could all just stay out of the way and let it rot until it falls by itself. "
There is no immediate message from ABC if it will return. Despite the declining ratings, the show recorded about twice as many viewers as Alec Baldwin's Sunday night talk show aired in the same time slot until recently postponed to Saturday night.
The TV ratings were otherwise dominated by football in a week. Of the 20 most watched programs from Nielsen last week, there were only four scripted programs – led by NBC's "This is Us".
With a strong NFL game on Thursday night, Fox led all networks with an average of 8.3 million viewers during prime time. NBC had 6.9 million, CBS 6.2 million, ABC 4.1 million, Univision 1.5 million, ION Television 1.3 million, Telemundo 1.2 million and CW 1.1 million.
Hallmark's cable nonstop holiday tariff rose to the top of the cable news ratings, averaging 2.108 million prime time viewers. ESPN was a fraction at 2.107 million, Fox News Channel had 2.01 million, MSNBC 1.88 million, and US 1.21 million.
ABC's "World News Tonight" was the evening news with an average of 9.1 million viewers. NBC's "Nightly News" ranked second with 9 million and "CBS Evening News" with 6.4 million.
