American Music Awards ratings “tank”

Tributes to Whitney Houston, Dick Clark and The Biebs couldn’t save the ratings debauchery that was Sunday’s American Music Awards.

Hosted by the new Dick Clark, Ryan Seacrest, the awards pulled some of musics top performers, including Kelly Clarkson, Taylor Swift, Carrier Underwood, Usher, Justin Bieber and Pink but nothing seemed to be able to hold an audience. The AMAs telecast delivered 9.5 million viewers and a 3.4 rating on ABC, falling 21 percent from 2011 to an all-time low.

Did you watch the AMAs? Were you bored with the live broadcast? Are award shows overrated? We thought that even the musicians looked bored during the show.
