Emmys Viewership Hits New Low as Trump Bashing Takes Center Stage

Initial ratings are in for Sunday night’s 68th annual Emmy Awards, and they’re as bleak as most of the winners’jokes about Donald Trumpduring the broadcast.

According to Deadline, the three-hour telecast on ABC drew a 3.6 in the key 18-49 demo and 11.9 million total viewers, setting a new viewership low for television’s biggest night. So-called “fast affiliates” figures, the first ratings reported for the show, had pegged the numbers at 2.5/8 in the demo and 9.69 million viewers, down roughly 7% from last year’s broadcast.

The Jimmy Kimmel-hosted affair was bested by both a tight battle between the Minnesota Vikings and Green Bay Packers on NBC’s Sunday Night Football (7.4/23) and the first part of CBS’ four-part series The Case Of: JonBenét Ramsey, which pulled down 10.29 million viewers and a 2.1/7 in the key demo.
