Numbers Are In: Did You Watch The American Country Awards Show?


[photogallerylink id=122568 align=left]This was just the second year that Fox aired the ACA’s, and the show is definitely gaining some steam. The American Country Awards – not to be confused with the CMA’s or ACM’s or CMT’s – (are you confused yet?) has increased their ratings by 33% over 2010.  [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Trace Adkins[/lastfm] and Kristin [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Chenoweth [/lastfm]hosted together this year…did you like these two paired up or not? I have heard mixed reaction, both good and bad reviews. Did YOU watch, and what did you think of the show?
[photogallerylink id=122692 align=left]Teen viewers increased by 33% and the total viewers were up 23% over 2010. The total number of viewers were 7.4 million and that meant that Fox TV came in second for the evening.

I watched the show, and just my opinion…but it just seemed a bit too disorganized. With ‘award winners’ performing after they would win an award, and the ‘pre-promoting’ of upcoming performers before a commercial break, it becasme obvious who was gonna win an award before they announced it. Which leads me to believe that the artists too, knew who had won in advance which takes the ‘surprise element’ right out of the equation.  The other award shows are for sure, a total surprise for both the artists and the audience. [photogallerylink id=122982 align=right]

I hate to say this, but I personally, did not think that Trace and Kristin together were all that great. Most of their onstage ‘schtick’ seemed too corny to me, and I also thought these two lacked ‘chemistry’ together. But what do YOU think? What do you like or not like about the show?

    I am thinking like you, the most disorganized award show that I have ever watched, ( I try to watch all country music ones). If Kristen sings like that all the time, I pity her, because she sure can’t sing. I like Trace, but he acts like he doesn’t want to be there. Poor performance by both.

    Lately, Trace seems like he doesn’t really want to be anywhere. When I see him making appearances these days, he just has a “whatever” type of attitude…like someone is forcing him to do something.

    I didn’t get to see the awards because it was erased from my DVR, I was sooo mad. Anyway, it does seem like it would suck. And Kristin seems so annoying, I remember her from that movie “You Again”. Great movie, but she was lame.
