Stunning and Brave: Fake Doctor Who Falls to Lowest Ratings In Thirty One Years; "Batwoman" Tells the World She's a Lesbian, and Loses Almost a Half Million Viewers in a Week

Get Woke...

Doctor Who is the need of a defibrillator as the show continues to have one foot in the grave as its latest episode is the worst viewed in 31 years of its 57-year history.

Sunday's episode, "Nikola Tesla's Night of Terror," was only watched by 4.04 million viewers in the UK.

We have to go way back to Season 23 of September, 1986 to see a lesser amount of viewers as "The Mysterious Planet" Part Four only had 3.7 million viewers tuning in.

And the first run of Doctor Who was cancelled a couple of years after that terrible rating.


Here are the season's ratings so far -- and these already are a huge drop from last year's ratings, which themselves dropped throughout the season:

Episode 1 "Spyfall, Part 1": 4.9 million

Episode 2 "Spyfall, Part 2": 4.6 million

Episode 3 "Orphan 55": 4.19 million

Episode 4 "Nikola Tesla's Night of Terror": 4.04 millio

Peter Capaldi's average ratings in his last season-- which were deemed so low as to demand a major shake-up in the series -- were 5.4 million.

And this article says that the current season's ratings are inflated by including "Live + 7" ratings -- not just the ratings on the night it was aired, but including everyone who then watches a download of it for the next week -- whereas previous seasons' ratings were just for the first night of airing.


Meanwhile, on Rotten Tomatoes, viewers of the show have blasted it with incredibly low positive ratings -- only 5% positive, a couple of weeks ago.

So Rotten Tomatoes does what Rotten Tomatoes does -- it started deleting negative reviews to appease a corporate friend.

Rotten Tomatoes is once again being accused of removing reviews, this time for Doctor Who, and doctoring the Audience Score.

The movie review aggregate site owned by Comcast's Fandango and run by a former exec at Disney has been accused of similar behavior for Captain Marvel and Disney Star Wars.

Even when they're deleting negative reviews, they can only get Doctor Who's positive audience ratings up to... 13%.

The #Woke Reviewers, of course, love it, giving it the Stunning and Brave rating of 81%.

The BBC will probably cancel the show. It can't go on with such low ratings. But they also won't just fire the current star and the terrible showrunner (Chris Chibnall) because that would be to admit that they made an error, and they would far rather destroy the show entirely than admit that #WokePolittics don't make for popular entertainment.

Let the whole house burn down, but be sure to preserve the precious Narrative. That's irreplaceable.

They'll claim that the premise is simply exhausted. Nothing we can do. Shrug.

The comic book review channel Comics Matter always points out that SJWs do not mind destroying franchises -- if a "Boy's Franchise" cannot be successfully remade into a viable propaganda organ for the left, then the next-best option is to simply eradicate it. Destroying it is a good Plan B -- at least you've taken something away from Men. (And White Men, especially!)

Meanwhile, the Strong Empowered "Batwoman" TV show made the Stunning and Brave choice of having the main character, who is an out-and-proud lesbian in her civilian secret identity, also proclaim to the world that her costumed avenger identity, Batwoman, is also an out and proud lesbian.

One would think that if you were a superhero with a secret identity, and you had a trait that you shared with 1% of the population, you might keep that uncommon trait quiet, for fear of simply telling the world "Hey, I'm Batwoman."

But Batwoman told the world she was a lesbian, making it a matter of hours and days before someone figures out, "Hey, maybe that lesbian that looks just like her is secretly Batwoman."

But at least Batwoman told the world she was a lesbian for a good reason: Because a man had pushed her out of the way of a bullet, and the tabloids began falsely reporting she was dating that man, and she decided she could not let the world believe that Batwoman was a straight woman.

This, reviewers tell me, is real. This is what happened on the show.

So she announced she was a lesbian, with a full magazine spread and cover photo that would almost certainly identifier as former special forces trainee Kate Kane.

Who is also a member of a family of billionaires, and so would be in position to buy a lot of bat-themed tech.

Secret identity, secret shmidentity!

She just could not abide the thought of the world thinking her costumed vigilante bat-themed persona was a damned breeder. And so she'd rather risk the lives of her family by telling every criminal "Hey, I'm really Kate Kane! Please kidnap my father!"

The result? Batwoman's ratings collapsed.

Now, hold on: I don't really think the ratings collapsed because of this one episode (subtly titled, "How Queer Everything is Today!").

I think the ratings collapsed because the show was a piece of shit since day one and only SJWs were Obligation-Viewing to support this Stunning and Brave show.

But SJWs are terrible fans who do not support franchises.

And you can't just watch a boring, terrible show out of nothing but Political Spite forever.

So they have, predictably, checked out. As they always do.

Bad news for The CW's Batwoman series as following the big Crisis On Infinite Earth's crossover, its ratings collapse, as the show suffers its worst viewership to date with the "How Queer Everything Is Today!" episode.

Not including the Crisis crossover episode, Batwoman has been averaging around 1.26 million viewers, but the post-Crisis episode that aired Sunday, only managed a series low 780k viewers.

That's a 38% drop from the season average and a loss of over 480k viewers.

This is also the first time that Batwoman has had a lower amount of viewers than Supergirl.

A lot of people point out that the CW is trying to milk Batwoman for SJW points by claiming she's the first lesbian lead on a superhero show, ever, but that's not true.

It's not even true of CW superhero shows. Which any of the reporters and reviewers of this show would know if they actually liked the shows they claim they love.

On Legends of Tomorrow, the lead character -- leader of the team, first billed in the credits -- is a "bisexual" but she's increasingly just been a straight lesbian for some time. She's currently in love with a woman.

The main male character in recent years is also bisexual, and mostly just gay. He was only shown to have a truly "love" type relationship with one person, who was a dude.

So this is really not Stunning and Brave at all. It's less SAB, and more SOP.

But at least Picard of Star Trek: Picard isn't going to be gender-swapped, or announce that he's transitioned into a male lesbian.

But he will have the signs of full-blown Trump Derangement Syndrome, as CNET -- owned by CBS, just as Star Trek is -- is all too eager to report.

When we last left him on Star Trek: The Next Generation or the final TNG film, Star Trek: Nemesis, there was still hope and belief in the Federation. Two decades later, Picard, played with full-throated vim and vigor by Patrick Stewart, instead rants about its failings and why he resigned.

"The galaxy was mourning, burying its dead, and Starfleet slunk from its duties," Picard barks, a nod to the destruction of Romulus that sets off the chain of events from the J.J. Abrams-directed Star Trek film. He calls the Federation "downright criminal."

"I was not prepared to stand by and be a spectator," he said.

See, Starfleet "standing by" as Romulus was destroyed (they didn't "stand by," by the way) is a crude metaphor for Trump closing the borders to refugees, and Britain exiting the EU to control the uncontrolled levels of immigration.

Picard has said as much in other interviews:

"I'd say the leadership of both countries (the US and UK) is somewhat questionable," Stewart said in an interview earlier this month. "And that is the same situation we find Starfleet in -- and the Federation."

So if you wanted the show to be about a Starfleet that is a force for good in the galaxy -- you lose. Starfleet will be a "a mirror to our modern dystopia," trumpets this corporate synergystic advertisement's title.

This won't be Star Trek: TNG part 2.

It'll be Star Trek: DNC.

The scene is also the clearest statement to fans that Star Trek: Picard, which premieres Jan. 23, isn't just a rehash of TNG, which ended its run nearly 26 years ago. Like Star Trek: Discovery, the first Trek show to run on CBS All Access (disclosure: CNET and CBS All Access are both owned by ViacomCBS), Picard embraces the conflict and shades of gray embraced by contemporary television but that some fans may see as a departure from Gene Roddenberry's hopeful vision of the future.

But some fans forget Star Trek has always reflected society.

Ah, the "some fans forget" gambit.

This is the standard media play every time they turn a franchise into an SJW propaganda vessel and wind up losing ratings -- they immediately start weaponizing the friendly shill-media press into labeling ex-fans as "toxic fans" that they're better off with anyway.

But now Star Trek: Picard is picking up the pace to label their former fans as "toxic" before the show even debuts. Fans who have spent literally thousands of dollars buying and re-buying movies on various formats, and buying merch and toys and models, will be written off as "a small group of alt-right misogynists and racists and transphobes" to deflect blame from the latest SJW disaster.

As they literally always do.

Burn, baby. Burn.
