The Emmy Awards Ratings Hit An All-Time Low, With Viewership Dropping By 25% From Last Year.
The results for the 2022 Emmys on NBC are in, and they aren't good. In total viewers, the ceremony was down 25% from last year, breaking a new viewership low.
The 74th Emmy Awards on Monday had a 0.9 rating in the key demo of adults 18-49, making it the lowest-ever key demo statistic for the Emmys. The 2020 ceremony aired on ABC and logged a 1.3 rating, setting the previous record low. The Emmys bounced back to 1.9 in 2020 after laying an all-time low of 1.3 in 2019.
Last night's telecast had 5.9 million viewers, compared to 7.9 million for the previous year on CBS, which was a new low. That is a new low and stark contrast to the 2021 program, which marked a turnaround in the Emmys' downward trend in the number of people watching. Last year's Emmys increased viewership by 16% over 2020's historical decline of 12%.
The 2022 Emmys were broadcast live from 5 p.m. PT/8 p.m. ET until 8:03 p.m. PT/11:03 p.m. ET, and they could also be streamed live on Peacock TV in the United States and Canada (from 10 a.m.).
HBO and Apple TV+ had a great year for the Emmys, with HBO's "Succession" winning drama and Apple TV+'s "Ted Lasso" winning comedy. In addition, the anthology series went to HBO's "The White Lotus." Also, for the 2022 Emmys season, HBO/HBO Max came in at number one with 38 wins.
The Emmys, presented by Done+Dusted in collaboration with Hudlin Entertainment and directed by Hamish Hamilton, aired from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.
