CBS Drops Hollywood Film Awards After Low-Rated First Broadcast

The Hollywood Film Awards will not be returning to CBS in November following a low-rated inaugural telecast last year.

CBS set a multi-year pact for the kudos with the awards show founder Carlos de Abreu and Dick Clark Prods. in January 2014. But the telecast last Nov. 14 delivered only a 0.5 rating in adults 18-49 and 4.1 million viewers.

The 19th annual Hollywood Film Awards are set for Nov. 1 at the Beverly Hilton. There’s no word yet from Dick Clark Prods. on telecast plans for the show.

Robert De Niro has been set as this year’s career achievement honoree.
