47th Annual Daytime Emmys Draws Over 3 Million Viewers For CBS Telecast with Return to Network TV

Photos: CBS

Friday night was a good night for daytime!  With its first foray back on to network television since 2011, the Daytime Emmy kudofest, while for the first time held this year virtually, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, scored very well in its timeslot.

The CBS broadcast averaged 3.1 million total viewers and a 0.3 demo rating.  That is way up from the last time viewers saw the award show on TV when it was on cable network POP TV back in 2015 with just over 900,000 viewers for its initial broadcast.

According to TV Insider report: The first hour of the Emmys garnered 3.3 million viewers to top the hour by edging out a rerun on ABC”s Shark Tank, and then slipped to second place for the second hour with 2.8 million viewers.

These were strong numbers for Friday night, and hopefully CBS and the other major networks will now continue this, and serve up the Daytime Emmy Awards moving forward.

The ladies of CBS’s The Talk hosted the event; each virtually from their homes, in an event filled with at-home acceptance speeches and presenters, and clip packages. The show was produced by NATAS and Associated Television International

So, what do you think of the ratings performance of this year’s Daytime Emmys?  Comment below.

It was great to see the Daytime Emmys televised. Hoping next year we can see all the glamour again. Seeing Susan Lucci makes me miss All My Children so much!

I was so happy to see it on network TV. Also happy it didn’t run overtime but I did miss seeing actors on the red carpet. Maybe next year.

I’m so pleased that the show came back to network television, even though it had to be virtual this year. I’ve really missed seeing it the last few years; and hope it will continue to be broadcast going forward.

It was cheap. it was weird. At times entertaining. At times thoughtful. At other times boring. I still watched the entire show but never fully warmed to the format. If it’s televised again will I watch. Yep.

What did you expect with the problems we’re facing with the COVID-19? Did you even think about that?

Just so happy it was back on broadcast networks again. (Thank You, CBS!)

I thought the show was put together well given the circumstances.

Here’s to next year!

I finally got around to watching the Emmys tonight, 2 nights after the fact, and it was…OK. Nothing can compare to a live show, and obviously none of this show was done live. Everything was pre-recorded and edited together to create the final product. That did make things run smoothly, and there was none of the constant “over-talking” that happens on all the live Zoom shows. However, the hostesses oddly did not congratulate the winners by name, because when they taped their segments they didn’t know. And it was weird that the hostesses didn’t talk to each other at all.… Read more »

I recorded and fast forwarded through segments I didn’t like. I was glad to see it back on TV.

The only reason they got these numbers was probably because of the coronavirus. More people then ever are home with nothing to do during the day then watch daytime tv. I wouldn’t expect similar numbers next year unless the coronavirus is still around…

Heck I wasn’t aware it was being televised or I would of tuned in. This is what happens when it’s not advertising, commercialized, or notified. Nobody knows nothing just from internet. Of course since they have taken most daytime soap off network and the Covid-19 messing with our programs, I have switch to antenna tv. cancelled cable.

Kudos to CBS for doing a great job despite COVID in bringing a virtual showing during prime-time to recognize daytime. CBS certainly took the night with the top awards. Next year should be even better. Thanks again CBS! But ratings would have been higher with better advertising.

Hope Covid is gone next year and the Daytime Emmys will again be broadcast on Network Tv. Frankly, the virtual version was disappointing. I watch to see my soap stars and all the celebrities in attendance. This was all hosts all the time. Except for a few presenters only the winners were seen. I had to work so I recorded it and fast forwarded through it. Thanks for the effort but I hope this is the last time this format is needed.
