Sunday Ratings: Emmys Reach New Low

Last night, I made a comment about the Emmys hitting a new low. Apparently it was more than a just a joke. Yesterday’s telecast - which was pitted against a football game - received its smallest numbers to date. Meanwhile, NBC was once again on top with both the viewers and the demos.

The 60th Primetime Emmy Awards

60th Primetime Emmy Awards logo

Even though the previous television season was marred by the annoying writers’ strike, I find myself really excited for the . Not only will this ceremony give us a chance to start anew, it’ll be the academy’s chance to celebrate what’s new.

Tonight, two basic cable shows (Damages, Mad Men) will get a chance to win for Outstanding Drama Series. (That would be an Emmy first.) Meanwhile, nominees in several categories will have an opportunity to compete in a Sopranos-less environment. An added bonus? A new category. This year, reality show hosts will finally be acknowledged for their programming contributions as well.

So who won? Who lost? Who ran up and grabbed the award even though they didn’t win? Read our West Coast play-by-play account of this evening’s telecast and find out!

This Week on TV (9/15-9/21)

Robert Sean Leonard in House

(You can view TV Envy’s Fall Television Programming Schedule here.)

 

MONDAY (9/15)
  • Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles (FOX, 8pm): “John’s schoolwork suffers, but his social circle widens when he makes a new friend.” Uhh, what exactly does he need to learn? He already knows that he’s in charge of saving the world.
  • Prison Break (FOX, 9pm):  “Michael and Linc happen upon T-Bag by chance.” Seriously, by chance? That’s like saying I just stopped watching this show…by chance.
  • I Want to Work for Diddy (VH1, 9pm):  “The teams must each throw a party that meets the high standards of a Diddy event, attending to such details as theme, decor, signature cocktails and guest list.” How would they know how to throw a Diddy event if they’ve never been invited to a Diddy event?
  • Luke’s Parental Advisory (VH1, 10:30pm):  “Luke tells Lacresha and Luther Jr. that they have a 2-year-old half brother. Later, he tries to bond with the child during a weekend visit.” What would we do without television cameras to record special family moments like these?
