While the ratings on Sunday of the Primetime Emmys on Fox “plummeted to an all-time low,” according to Variety, The pre-Emmy and post-Emmy programming on E! “served up some top-notch ratings Sunday,” reports Deadline.
“Fox’s [Emmys] broadcast averaged a 1.6 rating in the key 18-49 demographic and was watched by a total of 6.9 million viewers, a historic low for the awards show in both metrics,” Variety reports, adding, “That also represents a 33% rating decline on last year’s Monday night show on NBC and roughly the same on the 2017 ceremony which also aired on a Sunday night on CBS.”
On the other hand, Deadline says this about the Emmy-related shows on E!:“Hosted by Giuliana Rancic and Jason Kennedy, viewership for the network’s annual ‘Live From the Red Carpet’ was up 14% from a year ago in the adults 18-49 demographic (201,000 viewers) and 27% among total viewers (587,000).”
Also up in the ratings compared to last year on E! was its “Countdown to the Red Carpet: The 2019 Emmys Awards, ” and its post-Emmys “After Party: The Emmy Awards.” The latter “grew 46% among total viewers (217K),” Deadline reports.
