(AllHipHop News) The 2017 MTV Video Music Awards were broadcast on 10 different networks, but the show still drew abysmal ratings.
According to the Washington Post, this year's VMAs brought in 5.68 million viewers. That total is down from the 6.5 million people that watched the telecast in 2016 and the 9.8 million people who watched in 2015.
MTV's flagship television event also had to compete against the season finale of HBO's mega-hit Game of Thrones which had a record 12.07 million viewers.
Sunday night's VMAs featured performances by Kendrick Lamar, Ed Sheeran, Lorde, Fifth Harmony, Gucci Mane, Miley Cyrus, Pink, Logic, Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj, and more.
Lamar was the big winner. The TDE emcee took home six trophies, including the Video of the Year award for "Humble."
