This time around the Emmys decided to celebrate When They See Us’ revisionist black nationalist history with its cynical leftist smear of law enforcement and pro-crime propaganda.
Not a whole lot of people were watching though.
The 71st Emmy Awards drew 6.9 million total viewers last night on Fox, according to Nielsen. It got a 1.6 rating among adults 18-49.
That means the annual special shed roughly one-third of its audience (-33% in the demo and -32% overall) from last year…
Sunday’s Emmy Awards on Fox drew a 5.8 household rating, a new record low in Nielsen’s earliest-available numbers.
The special declined 22% from last year, when the best-of-TV celebration received a 7.4 — that had set the previous all-time low. That number clearly got obliterated (in the wrong direction for Fox and the Television Academy) this year.
Basically, a random network sitcom might have been beaten the Emmys. Sad.
Maybe they can rename, “When They See Us” to “Nobody Sees Us”.
