Johnny Depp, Amber Heard TMZ Special a Ratings Dud for Fox TV, Fewer than 900K Tuned In


Johnny Depp and Amber Heard have certainly been the focus of all celebrity gossip lately.

So why not air a special on them on Fox TV stations produced by TMZ? That’s like a triple header.

Alas, no one cared. The special, which played last night at 9pm, fetched fewer than 900,000 viewers.

The total, to be sure, was 882,000.

“Johnny vs. Amber: From Love to Hate” was dwarfed in ratings by NBC’s “America’s Got Talent,” which brought in 6 million fans.

Fame is fleeting! We move on now to the next scandal.
