    Time-zone adjusted numbers put the 2018 Billboard Music Awards at a 2.4 rating in adults 18-49 and 7.9 million viewers. That is a new low for the awards show in the key demo. It is also a decrease of approximately 8% in the demo and 9% in total viewers compared to the 2017 ceremony.

    Last year’s ceremony on ABC initially drew a 2.3 and 7.7 million viewers before adjusting up to a 2.6 and 8.7 million, which was itself a new demo low.

    Nobody really watches tv and awards shows all that much anyway. So I don't see how this is surprising.

    Ratings for award shows always decrease each year no matter who is performing or attending.

    There are too many award shows. I don't think people can care about all of them. Plus it's wall to wall pop stars. I can't be the only one who is sick of the lack of bands and more mature soloists.

    Award shows are boring. No one wants to sit through awards just for one fucking song from their favorite artists. I just wait for the video to be uploaded onto YouTube.

    Music awards nowadays should change their format, too long, too boring.
    Not only music awards, but movie awards as well.

    Interesting. They did attempt to make them better/bigger this year, and with all the social media chatter and trending around certain acts (Camila, Taylor, Normani, Janet, BTS et al.), I assumed they'd succeeded. I guess not.

    A lot of viewers streamed online instead, with Korean livestreams or YouTube livestreams.
    Plus not many watch award shows on TV anymore.
    So it's not super surprising that ratings are down again

    People only watched for BTS. I saw some fans leave after their performance. 90% of BBMAs audience was Armys.
