2017 Emmys Yield Award Show’s Lowest Viewership To Date / Pres. Trump Weighs In

Published: Wednesday 20th Sep 2017 by Rashad

The good news?  The 69th annual Primetime Emmy awards, which aired Sunday (September 17) on CBS, did not draw a viewership audience lower than its 2016-aired predecessor.

As fans may recall, the 68th annual showing rocked the show’s ratings history by becoming its least viewed ever.

The bad news?  Well…the 2017 show didn’t exactly draw in higher numbers either.  Details inside:

It didn’t draw more viewers either.  The Stephen Colbert-hosted showing drew in 11.38 million overall viewers – the exact amount as last year’s edition hosted by Jimmy Kimmel.

With the needle moving approximately nowhere, the 68th and 69th annual Primetime Emmys stand in history books together as the lowest rated airings of the telecast.  Before them, the 2015 airing pulled in 11.9M viewers.  [Source]

President Trump, the center of many-a-joke on the unusually political telecast, took to Twitter (as usual) to weigh in:

    I was thrilled to see how low the approval ratings were for President Trump these past months – the worst ever. Smartest people of them all voted for Hillary. -Fancy BISH

    The Emmys are so irrelevant to this generation. Only old and middle-aged white women care about that boring show. Congrats to all the black winners though!
