The Emmy Awards hit an all-time ratings low during its 70th annual ceremony on Monday night, getting just 10.17 million viewers for its NBC broadcast.
It was an 11-percent drop form last year’s television awards ceremony hosted on CBS by Stephen Colbert, which had 11.38 million viewers. It also marked the second time in three years the show reached an all-time low in viewership; the 2016 ceremony on ABC had the previous low of 11.3 million viewers.
The Emmys also hit a new low among adults 18-to-49 with just a 2.4 Nielsen rating, which indicates the estimated percentage of individuals in the group who tuned into the program.
Since NBC last aired the Emmys in 2014, the show’s total audience has plummeted 35 percent, and the 18-to-49 demographic is down 43 percent, The Hollywood Reporter reports:
Demo ratings have been down each year; the total-viewer count has fallen in three of the past four years, save for the slight uptick in 2017.
