Emmys Reach Record-low Audience Of 5.9 Million People

On Monday night, only 5.9 million people watched the Emmy Awards, which is even less than the two years ago when COVID-19 happened and stopped the show.

"The Ted Lasso" best comedy and "Succession" best drama awards event had less viewers than the 7.4 million who watched in 2021, according to the Nielsen organization.

The Emmys, which are typically shown on Sunday nights, were moved to Monday in order to accommodate NBC's debut "Sunday Night Football" game the previous evening.

It couldn't avoid football, either, because it was up against a close "Monday Night Football" game. Kenan Thompson of "Saturday Night Live" hosted the Emmys.

The previous low record for the Emmys, with 6.1 million viewers, coincided with a substantially reduced show because to the pandemic in 2020.

While football has an influence, Emmy viewership have been steadily declining since the awards became dominated by programming on cable and streaming platforms.

With so many more television shows available, there are fewer that pull the large crowds that were common in the days when broadcast television dominated.

The Emmys attracted a total viewership of 10.2 million people in 2018, making 2018 the most recent year in which the broadcast attracted more than 10 million viewers.

The Emmys had 21.8 million viewers in 2000, a record it won't break. Splintering TV viewers into various programming and services has contributed to a fall in Emmy ratings.
