Viewership is down 25% from last year as Emmy ratings hit a record low.
When it comes to television's biggest night, the 2022 Emmys on NBC, the Nielsen data is in, and it's not good.
Total viewers for the awards event decreased by 25% from the previous year, and ratings set a new low.
The 74th Emmy Awards, which were hosted by Kenan Thompson, got the lowest-ever key demo rating among adults 18-49 on Monday with a 1.0 rating.
The 2020 show, which aired on ABC and received a 1.3 rating, set the previous record low. The Emmys rebounded to a 1.9 the year after.
Compared to last year's CBS appearance, which garnered 7.9 million people, Sunday night's broadcast had a total audience of 5.9 million watchers.
That represents a new low and stands in stark contrast to the 2021 show, which saw an end to the Emmys' trend of steadily declining viewership.
The 2020 Emmys witnessed a historic drop-off of 12% in viewership, whereas last year's Emmys saw a 16% increase with 6.37 million viewers.
