Emmy Awards were the least-watched ever

Quote:
The 70th Primetime Emmy Awards were the least-watched edition of the annual ceremony in modern history.

Only 10.2 million viewers tuned in to watch the show with a 2.4 rating among adults 18-49. Thatís the least-watched Emmys on record.

Huh.
It was on TV recently?


No one wants to watch a bunch of entitled primadonna's bloviate their political stances at an award show.

Because it's culture war nonsense. To Yappi and the rest of the debate forum, the Emmy's are a get together of the Hollywood elites, aka liberals. They see this as a win for their side.

award shows and hall of fames at all levels are cool when you're young but as you get older you realize they are all about who people know and what friends they have among the decision makers.

Unfortunately, I think you're on to something. It has nothing to do with a culture war, but it does have a lot to do with our culture. There are just too many options out there, plus, you can now tape the thing and fast forward through the damned commercials and the category for best sound editing or whatever. Ratings are down across the board because of the wide array of media available for entertainment. I don't think it's a referendum on how people view Hollywood. But if it makes those that do sleep better at night, have at it.

Some of it appears to be a sign that the "all Trump all the time" drivel that passes for humor these days is getting tiresome by all but the most strident leftists.

I'll disagree because.

I think people have devalued these shows. You can't watch without someone intentionally trying to push buttons, push boundaries. They're not class anymore. They're not escapism. They're stress.

And there is something to all the options. There used to be three networks. You actually got to see these shows and have an opinion you thought informed. Now the shows are coming from all over the place. There's too many to even hope to sample.

No reason for me to watch the awards shows when I don't watch the shows that are being recognized at the awards shows.

Agree with eastisbest. ABC CBS NBC fox A & E fx HBO Starz TMC usa bravo E Netflix hulu own paramount bet and this is without checking the channels. Every demographic has a show. Teenage bisexual? Middle aged devil worshippers? Elderly hillbilly? Pre school thug in training? There's a show for you and some 'expert' is giving it rave reviews.

Do people even care who wins these awards? Back in the day people would watch to see their favorite celebs and what they wore.

Nowadays you have that information at the push of a button.

The only awards shows I watch (and I lump the ESPY's into that as well...what a turd of an idea) is some of the music awards. Even at that I will watch the performances and flip when they are giving away the hardware as I don't really give a flip whom wins and just watch it for the performances

I don't care who wins, and I have never decided which shows to watch based on the nominations and wins.

I find the music shows even worse (watched the MTV VMAs a couple times in college). To me, musical performances are meant to be heard, not watched.

Havent watched MTV's awards in a long time. I now prefer the CMT and country awards and I enjoy watching the performances because they often times are a bit different than the released version of the show and I, of course, love to see how those women usually slut it up for the TV!

Well, country music often has that going for it.
