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.

Sorry show because it was not about soap’s it was for charity and tourisum.

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.

A best friend to so many of us who didn’t even know him, across the country.”

Ripa, co-hosted Live! with Philbin for 11 years, said mentioned that she and her husband Mark Consuelos were lucky to have their children surrounding them over the weekend when they learned of Philbin’s death.

Through her tears, Kelly expressed:  “As people get older, you always know that certain things are inevitable, and passing away is one of those things, but Regis is one of the people that we all believed, I think, would somehow figure out a way around the inevitable. It was not in the cards.”

Meanwhile over on NBC, Kathie Lee Gifford appeared on the Today Show remembering her enduring friendship and working relationship with Regis. Gifford co-hosted Live with Regis and Kathie Lee for many years.

Overcome with emotion, Kathie Lee recalled her final visit with Philbin and his wife Joy during a visit to the East Coast. Gifford now lives in Tennessee.

Gifford shared how she called The Philbins and said, “Can we get together, can we have some lunch?’ So they came over about two weeks ago,  We just had the best time.”’

However, Kathie Lee noted after they said their goodbyes:“I just thought to myself, ‘Lord’, is that the last time I’m going to see my friend?’ Cause he was failing, I could tell.  I was just so grateful the Lord gave me that final time.”  She also shared moments with her talk with Joy after Regis’ passing, where Joy said,”Kathie he hadn’t laughed in a long, long time.  I was so worried about him.  The day that we came to have lunch with you was the last time I heard him laugh.”

On their on-screen partnership, Kathie Lee said of her time with Regis: “We always respected each other’s opinions so highly. You know, in all the years we were together, we never had one cross word.”

‘Strahan, Sara and Keke’ Canceled by ABC; Show Aired In Timeslot That Once Housed ‘All My Children’

No matter a network tries to do, replacing All My Children, which ran for 41 years on ABC has remained as everyone that follows the world of daytime drama knows, problematic.  Now come word via Page Six that Strahan, Sara and Keke has been canceled.

The show hosted by Michael Strahan, Sara Haines and Keke Palmer if you recall, replaced the foodie show, The Chew which ran for seven seasons and was the first show to air in the timeslot that belonged for over four decades to All My Children. 

Back in March of this year, Strahan, Sara and Keke took a break to make way for ABC’s News  Pandemic: What You Need to Know, a daily coronavirus report anchored by Amy Robach, Dr. Jen Ashton and sometimes TJ Holmes.

However, because the show did well in that two-week experimental run it morphed into GMA 3: What You Need to Know.  The new version of the show also talked about hot topics in the current news cycle, as well.

ABC’s Catherine McKenzie began producing the “GMA3” show four months ago and the network officially announced her as Executive Producer of the program on Thursday.

While ABC has yet to officially announce Strahan, Sara and Keke is over, a spokesperson told Page Six: “We’re proud of our teams at ‘SSK’ and ‘GMA3’ and how quickly they transitioned to producing a daily show to give people the news and information they need during an unprecedented pandemic, and conversations continue about how the show will evolve in the months ahead.”

It appears that Strahan, Sara and Keke won’t be returning; the future as many of their staff have transitioned over to ‘GMA 3’ with producers from ABC News Live, (the streaming division), helmed by McKenzie.

As for the futures of Strahan, Haines and Palmer; Strahan will continues to host Good Morning America, and they are all actively under contract with the network.

So, what do you think of  ‘Strahan, Sara and Kek’e being replaced by ‘GMA 3: What You  Need to Know’?  How long do you think that show will last in the timeslot once taken up by residents of Pine Valley? Comment below.
