Daytime Emmy Telecast Ratings down from last year!

Courtesy/CBS

The 38th Annual Daytime Emmy Award broadcast on CBS which was held this past Sunday night from the Las Vegas Hilton,  averaged a 0.8/3 in Adults 18-49 and 5.4 million total viewers throughout its two-hour broadcast in the just released ratings for the night.  The program was down 27% in Adults 18-49,  and 4% of total viewership compared to last years telecast.

So are the ratings just a continued sign of the times that the public cares less about daytime? Or, could it be that the presentation of the telecast and its content turned people off, so they tuned out during the broadcast? Daytime fans, weigh in on this!

I was excited to watch…or thought I would be.

I hated every moment of the Las Vegas info-mmercial.

Insulting to the viewers, actors and the entire daytime community!

Brady’s “forced retirement” and “I didn;t write this crap” lines did not set a celebratory tone. The show sucked and it was obvious so early on that daytime dramas and other programming were taking a back seat in their own vehicle. Why bother to tune in? Excellent sources of soap news like this site, Michael, would have the rundown later for us… with photos! and interviews! The evening was a disappointment yet again. Sure, you made a few charities, advertisers, and Las Vegas happy but what about the those of us who are fans of the genre and those who… Read more »

I tuned out because I was offended by the show. But that is my opinion. They didnt show the reels that were submitted the show was only about 20 soap opera related and everything else was Oprah (who couldnt be bothered to show up) and Vegas.

Well, last year I could have sworn it was either a show about Las Vegas acts or it was just one big Feed the Hungry commercial (no offense, but at one point it felt like I was being hit over the head with the same thing). I have no idea about this year’s because I didn’t watch them (I very rarely ever remember to watch any award ceremony) but if it took place in Las Vegas again, then that probably meant it was another showcase about Las Vegas. Can you really blame people for not watching when the point of… Read more »

The telecast keeps getting worse with each subsequent year. Daytime definitely still has a community of fans who care and want actors and their shows to succeed. However as it was stated many times before, the Daytime Emmys is becoming less and less a celebration of the Daytime Community’s accomplishments and more about promotions of products, places, services, etc. Honestly, I might as well have just read the tweets on who won since the telecast barely showed any of the actors that the night is supposed to honor. Obviously fans are going to tune in if they really want to… Read more »

Exactly how I feel too! Just imagine the Oscar’s with no clip or not showing the actors being nominated????

Duh!

Let’s do the math for a moment….

Lame Host + Lame Venue + Repackaged, Lame Show from Last Year + Lack of Focus = Horrible Ratings, and Angry Fans (already on a perilous ledge!)

Do the show well, pay respect to the daytime shows and (more importantly) performers that deserve it, or don’t do it at all. That simple.

And please, God, no more pointless, congratulatory love-fests for Susan Lucci. The woman who’s notoriety stems from NOT winning an Emmy. Unbelievable.

agreed about Susan Lucci. Yes she did win an Emmy finally…..but Erika Slezak has 6 of them, Kim Zimmer has 5 of them, etc…

I care ALOT about daytime TV. I LOVE Days of our Lives and have been watching for forever! I would say it was definitely the Emmy telecast being so horrible that people just turned it off. I think they need to apologize to all the soap stars and all the soap fans!

Could it because it was Father’s Day and lots of people where out celebrated with their fathers.
Do they count the viewers that DVD record it? How are the ratings figured out?

No, it’s not because we care less about daytime soaps, it is because THEY don’t care at all about soap actor’s performances. I wanted to see the scenes they submitted or at least see the nominees live while they were naming them. They couldn’t even prepare a clip of the nominees for soap of the year!!! The only actors I saw were the ones who won or presented. I, for one, will not watch next year. If I want to know what to visit in Vegas, I will ask my travel agent. And I love Oprah, but once they found… Read more »

The Daytime Emmys ratings could be down because it was Father’s Day and some viewers where out celebrating with their fathers. I was. But I dvd recorded it. Do the people that figure out the ratings count that. How are the ratings figured out?

I am MAD AS HELL! Rather than repeat what has already been eloquently said, go to the General Hospital Happenings News page. Everything she said about the emmy presentation show echoes my own disappointment.

The damn thing is unrecognizable.

I actually forgot the Emmy’s were on Sunday. I personally don’t think the fact that the tapes that the actor’s submitted not being shown played a real part in the ratings being down from last year since they did the samething the pervious year in Las Vegas.

I love my soaps and I love Wayne Brady, but I was very disappointed in the production. Wayne was great….it’s just that the entire show seemed SO RUSHED…like they just wanted to get it done. I mean the announcements of the nominees used to have such a build up. This year they announced them with NO clips…then rushed the winners off the stage. How come all the other award shows get 3 hours of airtime, and we got only 2?? There should have been some kind of tribute to soaps! I just was sooo looking forward to the show and… Read more »

When I realized how political the soaps nomination process is I tuned out years ago…its a joke e,g, GH pre-nom “special list” with the people The Powers wanted…why bother to watch them. They cook the books.

All My Children and ‘The Bay’ Star Eric Nelsen in the Cast of ‘Yellowstone’ Prequel ‘1883’

On Thursday, the full cast was announced for the highly-anticipated Yellowstone prequel that will bow on Paramount+ beginning on December 19th.

The Taylor Sheridan drama tells the tale of the Dutton family as they embark on a journey west through the Great Plains toward the last bastion of untamed America. It is a stark retelling of Western expansion, and an intense study of one family fleeing poverty to seek a better future in America’s promised land — Montana.

According to Deadline, in the cast is none other than The Bay’s Daytime Emmy-winner, Eric Nelsen (Daniel Garrett), who was also part of the cast of Prospect Park’s reboot of All My Children as AJ Chandler.

In 1883, look for Nelsen to take on the role of Ennis, a young, handsome cowboy who agrees to help escort a group of inexperienced men, women and children north to find a home.

The series also stars: Billy Bob Thornton, Faith Hill, Gratiela Brancusi, Sam Elliott, Stephanie Nur, and Tim McGraw to name but a few.

So, will you be checking out Eric in 1883? Comment below.

Mark Consuelos Exits ‘Riverdale’

Last night, All My Children alum, Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo Santos) made what appears to be his final appearance for now on CW’s soapy drama, Riverdale.

Consuelos departed Riverdale as a series regular on the season 5 finale, after coming on to the show in its second season in the role of villain, Hiram Lodge.

Riverdale executive producer and showrunner, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, shared with Deadline a statement on Consuelos contribution and run on the series: “From the moment Mark joined us, he was up for literally anything, a hundred percent committed to making Archie’s life a living hell. And what’s funny is, Mark couldn’t be more different from Hiram. A classy pro and the sweetest guy, always looking out for everyone. We wish Mark the best and hope this isn’t the last we’ve seen of Hiram Lodge.

Consuelos offered up these sentiments in a statement on his Riverdale exit: “First and foremost, I would like to thank Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa for this incredible opportunity. Never before has playing a character that was so bad, felt so good. Huge thanks to the Riverdale fandom, to the brilliant crew and amazing cast, whom I consider dear friends and family.”

So, will you miss seeing Mark on Riverdale? Elsewhere, still no word on the “Pine Valley” reboot in which Mark and wife, Kelly Ripa, are two of the executive producers of that many All My Children fans were hoping would come to fruition. Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
