Emmys Tank in Ratings- Four Hour Trump Bash Was a Dud
It was another Hollywood night of Trump bashing.
The Emmys Awards on Sunday night were the most political ever.
The stale anti-Trump jokes fell flat on the American audience.
More Americans watched Sunday night football than the Emmys.
Adjustments could put the total audience ahead of the previous year’s low, but the 8.2 overnight rating among metered market households is down another 2 percent from the previous year. That means that the final tally for the 2017 Emmys, hosted by Stephen Colbert on CBS, is on track to slip below the 11.3 million viewers (and a mere 2.8 rating among adults 18-49) that tuned in during 2016.
Overnight ratings are naturally below those of NBC’s Sunday Night Football, which took a 12.6 overnight rating.
FOX and Friends slammed the leftie awards show on Monday morning.
