NBC’s broadcast of last night’s 70th annual Emmy Awards, which easily led the night in the Monday primetime ratings, came fairly close to matching last year’s Emmys.
In the final official ratings, the Emmys adjusted up from their preliminary 2.1 to a 2.4 rating in adults 18-49, down a tenth from the 2.5 final that last year’s Emmys had scored, and a new low in the demo for the awards show. The Emmys adjusted up from a preliminary audience of 9.08 million to 10.17 million in the finals as well. Not only was this down from last year’s 11.38 million viewers, but it was also the Emmys’ all-time smallest audience.
Elsewhere, ABC’s back-to-back installments of “Castaways” scored matching 0.6s, making them the show’s highest-rated episodes since its series premiere back in early August.
On CBS, the season finale of “Salvation” was steady with the same 0.4 it had scored a week ago, while the “Elementary” finale was up one-tenth from a 0.4 to a 0.5 – tying its overall season average in the demo. FOX’s “Inside the Manson Cult: The Lost Tapes” special raked in a solid 0.6 on the network with 2.52 million viewers. The CW had a night of repeats.
|Adults 18-49 rating/share||2.4/12||0.6/3||0.6/3||0.6/3||0.2/1|

Rating: Estimated percentage of the universe of TV households (or other specified group) tuned to a program in the average minute. Ratings are expressed as a percent.
Fast Affiliate Ratings: These first national ratings are available at approximately 11 a.m. ET the day after telecast. The figures may include stations that did not air the entire network feed, as well as local news breaks or cutaways for local coverage or other programming. Fast Affiliate ratings are not as useful for live programs and are likely to differ significantly from the final results, because the data reflect normal broadcast feed patterns.
Share (of Audience): The percent of households (or persons) using television who are tuned to a specific program, station or network in a specific area at a specific time.
Time Shifted Viewing: Program ratings for national sources are produced in three streams of data – Live, Live +Same-Day and Live +7 Day. Time-shifted figures account for incremental viewing that takes place with DVRs. Live+SD includes viewing during the same broadcast day as the original telecast, with a cut-off of 3 a.m. local time when meters transmit daily viewing to Nielsen for processing. Live +7 ratings include viewing that takes place during the 7 days following a telecast.
