Ratings: Emmy Awards Up Slightly from Last Year
(ABC’s presentation in 2008 famously flirted with a nadir for the ceremony, as a band of reality TV hosts serving as emcees played to barely 12 million viewers while mustering a 3.8 rating.)
Fox also reports that its 3.7 rating in the 18-34 demo is a four-year best for the show, since the network last hosted the Emmys in 2007.
Based on the fast nationals, the Emmycast averaged 10.8 million total viewers, though that number is also due to be adjusted up, closer to if not matching the 13.5 mil who tuned in last year.
Sacking all comers of course was NBC’s Sunday Night Football game, which averaged 21.5 million viewers while scoring a 9.2 rating.
