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’ Bill and Susan Seaforth Hayes On Doug and Julie’s Emotional Scenes: “We Didn’t Have To Act Them. The Love Between Us Played Them For Us.”

If you have been witnessing this week’s episodes of NBC’s Days of our Lives, you know that Julie suffered a massive heart attack that has rocked Doug to his core, and has made the once invincible Julie devastated that she may not survive this medical crisis to continue her enduring love with her husband.

The heart attack which came about after Julie minced words with Gabi (Camila Banus), has given veteran stars and Lifetime Achievement Daytime Emmy Award recipients, Bill and Susan Seaforth Hayes, some emotional and heartfelt material to play.  As everyone knows, the popular duo has been married in real-life for decades.

On their official Twitter handle DaysHayes, the couple shared this tweet to their followers: “Those scenes between Doug and Hope, and the ones between Doug and Julie were so beautifully written, we didn’t have to act them. The love between us played them for us. Thank you, Ron!”

Of course, Bill and Susan were referencing Days of our Lives head writer, Ron Carlivati for this storyline and giving them these impactful scenes to play which mean so much to them and the longtime DAYS viewing audience.

So, what have you thought about the recent Doug and Julie scenes, since Julie suffered a heart attack?  What do you think of giving vets like Bill and Susan the ball in this storyline? Comment below.

Leann Hunley Talks Anna’s Latest Return; Stacy Haiduk & Arianne Zucker Dish Kristen’s “Unmasking” On ‘Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast’

On an all-new Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast, three women who have been part of the latest major reveal are the special guests.  First up is Leann Hunley, who’s Anna returned to Salem only to find Tony (Thaao Penghlis) very much alive and married to who she thought was “Nicole”.

Then in the twist at John (Drake Hogestyn) and Marlena’s (Deidre Hall) wedding anniversary shindig, it was revealed that the woman masquerading as “Nicole” was actually Kristen, thus devastating Anna knowing that Tony knowingly married his own sister as part of plot to gain control of DiMera Enterprises.  She later learns Tony has to spend time behind bars for shooting Ted Laurent, and has to say goodbye to him as he serves time after finding him again.

Leann chats with host Michael Fairman as she weighs-in on the latest story plot, working with her dear friend Thaao Penghlis , the men in Anna’s life through the years, and how the series has written her character over the years and more.

Later, Stacy Haiduk (Kristen) and Arianne Zucker (Nicole)  sit down with Michael and talk about the sisterhood they have formed since learning that Ari would be playing Kristen in disguise.  The dynamic duo share their thoughts on the making of, and the moment of the big reveal when John figures it all out and unmasks Kristen in front of the guests at the Jarlena wedding reception, as Brady (Eric Martsolf) is beyond duped!  In addition, both Stacy and Ari share that they are looking forward for viewers to now see the return of the real Nicole, and that Kristen will no longer be hiding under a mask, and more.
