RATINGS: Primetime Emmys Tackled By Sunday Night Football Sink To All-Time Low!

Looks like this year’s 67th annual Emmy Awards moved back to Sunday was not a smart maneuver after all!  Up against the red hot Sunday Night Football game  on NBC, featuring perennial powerhouses: the Green Bay Packers vs. Seattle Seahawks, the annual love fest for primetime TV came in with a record low number of total viewers.

The ratings released on Monday relate that Fox’s Emmy telecast brought in a 11.9 million viewers.  The broadcast had a 3.6 rating among adults 18-49.  In addition, Sunday’s Emmys were down 14% and 24% respectively from 2014.   However of note is that last year the Emmys didn’t face Sunday Night Football on NBC, because NBC televised the Emmys and moved the show to a Monday on August 25th.

However, while the ratings were down, social media wasn’t!  In fact, the 67th Emmy Awards accounted for more than 1 million tweets – viewed over 188 million times.  The most social minute came at 10:47 p.m. ET, as 12,601 tweets were sent out after Viola Davis won the Emmy for Lead Actress in a drama for her performance in ABC’s How to Get Away with Murder.

So, what did you think of the Emmys telecast?  Did you even watch it?  If so, did it make the grade?  And what of the social minute of last night which featured Viola Davis winning Lead Actress becoming the first African-American woman to do so?  Should the Primetime Emmys take a note from the Daytime Emmys, and cut down their show to 2 hours instead of 3? Is it even possible when they have to represent so many different genres within the medium?  Comment below!

I turned it off after 90 mins. as I was so bored. Not by the winners but by the host and the program itself.

The show is always inferior when it is on FOX. Please stick to the three major networks from now on.

I am satisfied by reading about it.

Although, I want to see the In Memoriam segment, a friend tweeted that it was the Eva Cassidy version of Over The Rainbow that was played.

Mark, you were stronger than I.

I turned it off after about 5 minutes. Andy Samberg was just annoying. All these awards shows following the same template month after month, year after year.

Didn’t watch football either.

What does it matter which of the four broadcast networks carries the show-it was produced by don Mischer.The show is terrible because so many of the nominees are from niche show on cable networks or streaming sources that appeal to a more narrow and segmented audience.
As for the atrocious version of “Over the Rainbow” that is NOT the melody of that song.As for the unfunny,sophomoric host…….

Thank you for the link. That was very nice of you.

That song was unrecognizable. Ridiculous.

I didn’t watch but I kept up with the winners on a website. I know Hollywood is liberal but the winners seemed to be way more PC than they usually are. Viola Davis, Regina King, the Transparent show, Veep with Julia Louis Dreyfuss slamming Donald Trump.

ALong with shows like Veep and the HBO show Oliver Kitteridge dominating in all of their categories. SHocked that Jessica Lange didn’t win for her last American Horror STory. I’m glad I didn’t watch, I would have been bored..

absolutely correct Blake- a very nasty left wing anti tradition slant to the whole enterprise.Horrible nominees,horrible winners,horrible speeches,horrible host.Horrible.

It’s so great that two dudes can find each other on the internet and then get gay married!

Mazel Tov to the happy couple of Blake and Robert!

Learn to spell your own name Torquemada before you make irrational,inexplicable ,moronic insulting comments.

Oh don’t be so butthurt Torqumada. Nice name btw lol.

Samberg was an awful host and unfunny.

Sorry, but I do not watch the emmys..
the emmy stuff is stupid.. stupid and Boring.
I do not care who wins or losses.

I usually watch for the “In Memoriam” segment, but forgot the telecast. I found and posted a link to that part of the Emmy Awards if you’re interested. I was shocked to learn Jan Hooks (SNL) died! ⬆

The Television Academy needs to consider moving the Emmys to August (before the regular NFL season starts) or move it from Sundays to Mondays?!

People are away on vacation in August. It needs to go back to the weekday BUT if the host isnt good and shows or actors I like are not nominated, I dont care and I think others feel the same way.

None of my shows were nominated for anything so I had no reason to watch.

Diane…Same for me. Plus there we many shows and actors I didn’t know anything about. Guess it has to do with so many new and different players producing movies and tv shows. But I just don’t know how you can have awards for comedy and not even mention Big Bang Theory except for supporting actress.

The Emmys used to be about the networks and since HBO came into the picure years ago, its too broad of a spectrum. Didnt cable have or still has their own award show? I know this makes me sound old but I think the Emmys should be between ABC, CBS, NBC, CW, and FOX!

not a bad idea to go back to the original brainchild ????

this would up the ante and wrangle challenge all the more

why shouldn’t those who pay for cable and extra for HBO.. who’s arena is that much more stimulating ??? LOL language, full on frontals, slinging diatribe to and fro ? no?

cable plus : should have their own award show… audience nude fest

So, the overpaid THUGS beat the surgically enhanced JUGS in the ratings!

Hate to sound old, but watching just a few minutes of the Emmys made me long for days of my youth, when TV was just pop culture light entertainment. It wasn’t football, the show was boring, the host wasn’t funny, and it continues to focus on recognizing shows from HBO and other narrow segments.

Right on, Anne. There’s no place to blame football for this ratings fiasco. A lot of non-sports fans also failed to tune in, whether due to the choice of host, nominees, subject matter….whatever. Having said that, it wouldn’t be remiss to also suggest that going out of one’s way to alienate roughly fifty percent of the nation’s population via repeated insults and snide comments probably did the show no favors either. Hollywood needs to recognize that this country has a two-party system and regardless of where one’s personal views fall along the left-right spectrum, both sides—as well as the middle ground—-should be represented and respected. That is supposed to be the American way.

Green Bay Packers v. Emmy’s? No contest. Go! Pack! Go!
