Emmys

NBC



Last night's Emmy Awards winners may be flying high, but the ceremony itself hit a new all-time low in the ratings.

Like the last time the ceremony was broadcast on Monday night, viewership dipped. The show, which aired on NBC, was watched by 10.2 million viewers and got a 2.4 rating among adults 18-49.

Those numbers represent a drop of 11 percent in viewers and 4 percent in the demo.

The last time NBC broadcast the Emmys in 2014, it was also on Monday night and at the time, viewership dropped 11 percent from the previous year. In both cases, NBC moved the ceremony due to its Sunday Night Football schedule.

It also didn't help that the ceremony itself was lackluster, with pundits and Twitter users lambasting hosts Michael Che and Colin Jost.

Awards shows in general have faced big drops in audience. This year's Oscars experienced a 16 percent loss and the Grammys fell 20 percent.
