Emmy Ratings–Front Loaded– Got Big Boost from NFL Lead In, Then Fell Off

Share

The Emmy ratings last night got a huge boost from the NFL. The spillover from the football game to the Emmy telecast gave the first hour of the show millions more eyes than in the past. But as you can tell, from half hour to half hour, the Emmys lost steam. Knowing that viewers would start leaving for the “Dexter” finale on Show time and “Breaking  Bad,” CBS cut “60 Minutes” and threw in lots of big categories early. They also added non sequitur performances by Elton John and Carrie Underwood. There were several oddities including Jon Hamm’s beard, which he stole from Zach Galafinakis. Still, Neil Patrick Harris has now become the George Jessel of awards shows. They’re his for life.

Anyway here are the fast ratings. Cable ratings are coming soon.
