MTV Movie and TV Awards Still Found a Million Viewers Despite No Host, No Audience, No Actual Show


Someone is still watching MTV.

They say their Movie and TV Awards were up by 23% across 8 channels and Paramount Plus on Sunday night.

This is despite having no no host, no audience, and basically no show, just clips and pre-taped acceptance speeches.

How weird. In the end, fans just settled on a miscellaneous show. A million people watched across the 8 channels, and maybe a million more on Paramount Plus.

This should give the Tony Awards hope, and maybe also the future of awards shows will just be like this, take an example and elimination the entire live element!
