Sad Trombone Plays for Joe Biden After Ratings Come in for Seth Meyers Interview

Because Joe Biden so rarely does sit-down interviews and because his solo press conferences are even rarer, his handlers see fit on occasion to have him appear on late-night talk shows, where the audience is friendly, the host is even more friendly, and the whole thing can be pre-recorded so the production team can edit out the most embarrassing parts before the segment airs.

As RedState documented on Tuesday, though Biden’s appearance on the “Late Night With Seth Meyers” show Monday was a Festival of Fail from start to finish, that didn’t stop his sycophants from laughably portraying it as a “win.” 

For instance, we had White House Deputy Press Secretary Andrew Bates tweeting out what was a clearly staged “Dark Brandon” clip of Biden in sunglasses, and pointing to audience approval. Meanwhile, “View” co-host Joy Behar giddily declared the interview would resonate with voters because The View’s audience clapped like seals over it.

As it turns out, though, Biden’s latest late-night talk show adventure was not a big hit with a key demographic:

President Joe Biden’s appearance on Late Night With Seth Meyers did not score a ratings win for the NBC program, particularly with younger viewers.

The Monday night interview with the president brought in some 852,000 average total viewers and 181,000 viewers in the 25-54 age demographic, according to Nielsen Media Research. The demo viewership marked a 32 percent drop compared to the same day last year, which tracks with the show’s already declining demo viewership for the year – down some 10 percent year to date.

Though Biden’s apologists are still busy spinning like tops on how his back and forth with Meyers and the few moments he was able to string together a few coherent sentences will allegedly be an election-year game-changer, the interview has been panned by media and TV critics alike, including Variety’s Daniel D’Addario, who had this to say after watching it:

How did the President do on “Late Night,” in the end? It’s a complicated question, vexed both by what our expectations for a generic 81-year-old might be and by the type of politician Biden is. Unlike the two political outsiders that preceded him, he’s a creature of Washington who seems fairly unimpressed by the entertainment industry. But that also means that, even in the best of times, it’s been a bit lost on him how best to leverage it for his own purposes. Here, he stayed on message, he volleyed back a joke made to him (if woodenly), he came out alive. Is that coming as good news for a person in a Trump-negative frame of mind the ideal? Well, no. But, for Biden and for us all, it’s been a long 10 years.

Additionally, here’s some context on ratings just to show how bad it was for Biden:
