Hannah Montana Ratings Dropping
Annie Leibovitz Did More Damage Than Disney Calculated
May 19. 2008
50-year-old lesbian photographer Annie Leibovitz has tanked the ratings of the kids television show Hannah Montana, jeopardizing a billion dollar Disney franchise, via the inappropriate photos she took of its 15-year-old star Miley Cyrus.
The show’s ratings have fallen by as much as 26% since the time of the scandal, where Annie Leibovitz told the 15-year old to pull down her top and place a sheet over her chest, leaving her back and the top of her cleavage exposed.
“Hannah Montana” is now no longer Disney’s top rated show, having lost a few million viewers, with the substantial ratings decline being attributed to Leibovitz and the scandalous photos.
These errors and miscalculations happen, as Hollywood’s moral compass (well, they don’t have one) is not in line with the rest of the nation as a whole.
Hollywood is an industry where pre-teen and teen stars take drugs and engage in sex at an early age. People in the industry know and look the other way. What’s shocking for the rest of America is not shocking for Hollywood. Hence, the missteps.
How, Leibovitz thought this was okay is beyond me. If I were given the task of having to photograph a 15-year-old girl for a magazine my first words would have been, “Little girl, either you wear the Victorian dress and bustle or you don’t get your picture taken. Do you want the Boogey Man to get you?!” The Boogey Man being R Kelly.
Yes, I went there, but only to bring home the point that R. Kelly cannot be allowed to continue preying on young girls.
Miley Covers Up As ‘Hannah Montana’ Ratings Drop
Compared to the first original show of the year, which aired in January, viewership for Sunday’s show was down 26%.
An estimated 3.1 million viewers tuned in for “Hannah’s” 7p.m. Sunday edition, which aired out of the network’s usual pattern for fresh episodes.
“Hannah Montana” has now been replaced as Disney’s top-rated show by “Wizards of Waverly Place,” which stars Selena Gomez, who made several appearances in “Hannah Montana.”
