“The highly viewed award shows cannot help but influence our viewing choices. Not that we stop watching our favorites when they lose, but we are encouraged to sample the winners that we may not have seen before.”
Bill Carroll, VP, director of programming, Katz Television Group
“I watch everything anyway, so it doesn’t matter whether it won an award or not. `Mullets,’ `West Wing,’ all the same. TV viewers in general don’t seem to care much either. I remember attending a Daytime Emmys show years ago where Dinah Shore won an award for her NBC show, which had already been canceled.”
Tim Brooks, executive VP, research, Lifetime Entertainment Services
