Daytime Emmy Telecast On POP Scores Nearly 900,000 Viewers Making It Their Most Watched Live Event In 8 Years!

The numbers are in for the 42nd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards which were back on television after a year hiatus.  And the numbers were good for the Pop network, who for the first time broadcast the ceremonies where they clocked nearly 900,00o in total viewers from the exclusive first-run airing and the repeat broadcast.  (Pop aired two telecasts of the awards ceremony – live broadcast at 8 PM ET/5 PM PT with a repeat at 11 PM ET/ 8 PM PT.)

The live premiere was the most-watched live event on Pop/TVGN in eight years, dating back to when the network premiered Live on the Red Carpet with Joan and Melissa at the Academy Awards.

In addition, the 42nd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards hosted by Tyra Banks, ignited fans on social media and became the second-highest-ranked show in Nielsen’s Twitter TV Ratings for the night, just behind Game of Thrones.  The live awards show outranked the 2015 Radio Disney Music Awards, WWE Extreme Rules and Keeping up with the Kardashians in the Nielsen Twitter TV rankings.

While the 900,000 is significantly less than back in the Daytime Emmy telecast heyday of the 90’s, and as recently as 2011 when it last aired on network TV, Pop is a cable outlet and the Daytime Emmys are building a comeback after several sub-par  outings.  This year’s production was handled for the first time by Michael Levitt Productions.

So, what do you think about the numbers for the Daytime Emmy telecast? And how well the Daytime Emmys performed on social media? Never underestimate the power of the soap viewers and those of daytime television!

It sounds good enough for POP to air it again next year…and of course its not as high rated as in the 90s…back then you had slightly fewer cable stations, and less people on internet, cell phones ect….plus back then you had twice as many soaps and soap viewers as there are today…but maybe with POP airing the telecast…which showed definately more class than last years disaster…will grow with more viewers next year…i believe it was good publicity for daytime…now if POP was available in more markets im certain those numbers would be much higher!!!

I think you’re right on all counts…especially being available in more markets. Wonder if they will have highlights on youtube@

It was a great show. All my faves won. The only con was no-Kathy Griffin, who completely saved what could be saved of last year’s fiasco.

yeah, but the numbers would be much more than that, IF Pop offered live streaming, too. And, many people on this blog, including myself, do not have Pop on our cable. Too bad, I and others couldn’t view it 🙁

Always contact your cable subscriber and say youd like to see Pop as part of your cable channel offering…sometimes if they get enough requests it might work!!!

I didn’t even know POP existed prior to this year. So, good for them. Decent numbers for a cable show. I hope they do it next year because the atmosphere was much better than 2014’s, which I attribute to the performers knowing it was being broadcast instead of streamed.

Some suggestions for next year –

1) If there is a clip montage, show that to viewers and not the performer on stage. We can hear the performer. But, we want to SEE the tribute clips.
2) Having a host who is social media savvy is great. But, PLEASE, make the host cover their nether regions. Mini-skirt is fine for those who have good legs. But, no one wants to see camel toe from a host. Got that cameraperson? Zoom in or move that lens up to spare us all.
3) We really should hear the presenters voices announcing the nominees. I’m tired of hearing a generic voice. If they want to be a nominee, let them practice name pronunciation. They should be able to enunciate, for goodness’ sake.

CORRECTION: That should read, “If they want to *present,* let them practice….”

POP didn’t exist before January 2015. Before that it was the TV Guide channel.

I watched the last half of the awards, and my only problem was the TV Guide scrolling at the midpoint of my tv screen. That drives me crazy! I hate complaining because it was so much better than last year, but with the scrolling, you miss a lot. Thanks to POP for showing it on live TV!

That’s because POP IS the TV guide channel…so they were simultaneously running the guide. Agree, though. It was distracting/annoying.

that is a strong number. the show was good. The daytime emmys rebounded this year after some lackluster shows in recent years. This was a high rating for pop

It was a ruse! Tyra has a new talk show. Oooooo, five people in Philly are happy now!

It was good to have it back on TV, but unfortunate that was not everyone gets POP. It was better than last year but Tyra & her lack of clothing was terrible.

Patrick

consider that : who even gets “POP” : guesstimate : 10% of the daytime audience

this could have been …. 10 times the audience???? hopeful

Did anyone watch Queens of Drama on Pop after the Emmys? I have to admit I rather enjoyed it (primarily due to Donna Mills’ part). It’s advertised as a “reality” show, but I strongly suspect that it’s totally scripted.

As I’ve posted before, while there were things I could have done without, there were many things that were right about this year’s broadcast and I think the show is moving back to the right path.

So happy for good numbers and hope this will encourage POP to telecast it next year.

Good for the show and POP. I hope they improve on things for next year. Show clips of the nominees rather than cutesey filler segments. I don’t need nor want that.

I saw the sneak peek and wasnt all that impressed. Donna Mills is great but I understand she is just a guest and not a regular?

900,000 viewers were inflicted with the sight and sound of Tyra Bank’s whose numerous costume changes featured dress after dress which was even more horrific than the other.
She truly outdid herself.
Please, please, please, do not let that Road Warrior meets Dynasty creature host this event again.

Great news, the Emmys were a hit online also because it was trending on Twitter all night even after the show and it was at #2 trend for most of the night. And it was trending in other countries too.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Sonny Goes Off On Scheming Gabi & This Week Maggie Remembers The Night Adrienne Was Killed

Things are definitely reaching a boiling point in Salem.  First, if you caught last Friday’s episode, it featured a terrific scene between Freddie Smith (Sonny) and Camila Banus (Gabi) that shook everyone to its core.   Gabi, who has now been arrested at the PCPD for her crimes against Julie and her schemes against Lani, gets a visit from Sonny, and boy is he angry.  At the time of their visit, Justin (Wally Kurth) has already told Sonny that he doubts there is any way that Gabi will avoid prison time.

Realizing that both Ari’s parents are looking like they will be in prison, he asks Gabi, “Who gets the fun job of explaining this to Ari?” Ari loves Julie. He exclaims,”How I am supposed to explain that her mother tried to kill her multiple times?”

Distraught and thus facing parenting alone, Sonny screams at Gabi if she even knows her daughter exists!?  Gabi thinks Sonny is being horrible to her, but stands by her actions that Julie needed to pay.  Sonny just shakes his head in disbelief.  Ari’s parents will both be in the slammer!  When DA James Giddens arrives (Terrell Tilford) he says that Gabi will get 10 years in prison with no time off for good behavior and no parole.   In these scenes. Smith and Banus really delivered the material and brought it to an emotional level that hit home to the viewers.

And now this week, get ready for more drama.  Gabi may get a last minute reprieve, while Maggie (Suzanne Rogers) is so close to remembering what happened the night of the accident that killed Adrienne (Judi Evans) – how she was drunk in a car that caused the crash – and the victim of this is not only Adrienne, but Will (Chandler Massey) who was sent to prison for a crime he did not commit.

DAYS Kate Mansi Learns The Ropes Of Directing A Multi-Cam Soap In New DOOL App Series

She has won a Daytime Emmy for her stellar performances as Abigail Deveraux, but now as many know, Kate Mansi has been spreading her wings as a director behind-the-camera.

Mansi follows on the heels of such fan favorite actresses as: Alison Sweeney (Sami, DAYS), Heather Tom (Katie, B&B), Cady McClain (Dixie and Rosanna Ex-AMC and ATWT) and Kimberly McCullough (Robin, GH) all who have eventually gone on to direct daytime and primetime episodes  of noted and successful series.

In the new DOOL app four-part series, From On-Stage to Behind-The-Scenes with Kate Mansi, the talented young actress learns the rigors and demands of working behind the camera in the fast world of daytime drama from Days of our Lives‘ director (and another Emmy winner) Sonia Blangiardo,who mentors Kate through the process.

The series talks about the current movement of having more female directors getting opportunities and be recognized for their work in film and TV, and the challenges a soap opera director faces every day: from dry block, where they work with the actors, working through their shot lists, and the ensuing problems that can arise in any production on the day to day.  But in soaps, the pressure is really on, because there is not much time to re-shoot things and to get them right.
