    It's over. The HSS bump. :jj:

    Turns out, Americans aren't really into watching Lady Gaga sing and dance with Muppets on Thanksgiving.

    Even with guest appearances from Sir Elton John, Kristen Bell, Ru Paul and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, the holiday special flopped big time in the ratings.
    :dontknow:

    Only 3.6 million viewers tuned in to watch "Lady Gaga & The Muppets Holiday Spectacular" on ABC. Even worse, it had a 0.9 rating in the adults 18-49 demographic. For context, ABC aired an annual repeat of "A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving," which celebrated its 40th anniversary, earlier in the evening and 5.3 million viewers watched. It had a 1.6 rating in the same demographic.

    Entertainment Weekly points out that "A Very Gaga Thanksgiving," which aired on ABC in 2011 had a 78 percent higher rating with 5.4 million viewers.

    Always the grateful artiste, Gaga paid no attention to her big ratings tankand tweeted a note to her fans the same night: "Happy Thanksgiving little turkey+tofurkey monsters, I love you with am, my heart and thought all day how grateful I am to be."

    Pop music is a cruel deal. She was a flavor of the month. Still she made more money than she can spend.

    Muppets target audience = kids
    Gaga target audience = gay dudes and women
    (yes, I'm generalizing)

    crossover appeal either way? :dontknow:

    Guess not.

    Good. I'm glad that she turned out to be yet another shitty fad. I always found her very annoying.





    Holy shit is that her? I always found her completely unattractive but this photo is just horrible. She looks like a female neanderthal version of Marilyn Manson.

    i feel better: at least i wasn't the only one who thought the show was lame. i am still curious about kristen bell's boobs: when she got them, who did the work, and how much they cost.

    It's great that a 40-year-old Charlie Brown show doubled her ratings on the same night, I assumed people who liked any of those holiday specials already owned them years ago.

    Facts like this still give me faith in America.

    I hope the muppets are able to wipe the gaga stench off of them

    She doesn't turn 28 till March so she still has a few months to leave a permanent mark on popular music (Cobain, Winehouse, Hendrix, Joplin, Morrison, Brian Jones, etc).

    But I thought it was "artpop"?

    Only a couple more weeks of pushing her before the label does a 180 on supporting her for the rest of her career.

    Get ready for her to go the Kanye/Prince "I'm a SLAVE" whining for the next record.
