2019 Emmy Awards record low viewing rates


The 71st Emmy Awards drew 6.9 million total viewers on Fox, 32% down in viewer rates.

According to Nielsen, it got a 1.6 rating among adults 18-49.

NBC in 2018 established the awards show’s prior lows of a 2.4 rating in the key demo and 10.2 million viewers overall.

Fox’s red carpet pre-show averaged a 0.9 rating and 4 million viewers on Sunday.

Sunday’s Emmy Awards on Fox drew a 5.8 household rating, a new record low in Nielsen’s earliest-available numbers.

The special declined 22% from last year, when the best-of-TV celebration received a 7.4 — that had set the previous all-time low.

Last year’s Emmys aired Monday, Sept 17, 2018 on NBC, and were hosted by “SNL: Weekend Update” anchors Colin Jost and Michael Che. This year’s ceremony was host-less.
