Ryan Seacrest Bombs as Emmys Host

Ryan Seacrest Bombs as Emmys Host

Sunday’s 59th Primetime Emmy Awards tanked in the ratings!

It scored the lowest ratings ever for the awards show franchise, a 4.3 rating/11 share among adults 18-49 — which is down 17% from last year.

Only 13.1 million viewers tuned in, making it the second worst in history!

The record low was in 1990, when it aired on Fox and drew 12.3 million. Last year when the show aired on Aug. 27 on NBC, it lured 16.2 million viewers.

    I thought Ryan did a OK job. I dont think you can blame the ratings solely on the host. I mean people are just sick of watching awards shows because there are so many of them. The Emmys were a little over 3 hours last night. Thats just crazy!

    as much as i think he is a tool, ryan had nothing to do with my decision not to watch. awards shows are always boring and this year in particular i didn’t care about any of the nominees.

    I’ll be honset, I didn’t watch the whole thing but this guy is annoying as h e l l!
    I can’t figure out why but he is. Maybe because he thinks and acts like he’s smarter than everybody else.

    I didn’t watch the awards. It had nothing to do with Ryan Seacrest. I haven’t watched a TV awards show in years because (for example) the supporting actress for drama category. They were from the same show – Grey’s Anatomy and the Sopranos. There was one other show represented. I don’t watch either of those shows because I don’t have HBO, and Grey’s Anatomy is just like every other one hour drama, to me.

    Also, I don’t think it is a level playing field when you can have cable and regular TV represented. You can do a lot more on cable than you can on regular television.

    I aggree with the previous post- award shows are boring and self-congratulatory events. The pre-show fashion is more interesting than the actual award show itself. Last night was super BORING. Thank goodness Colbert and company were around to liven things up a bit

    Guess all that pimping he and the E! Channel did was for not!

    I don’t know of a more deserving person for this to happen too. Ryan PeeCrust thinks to highly of himself and thinks he can make or break a star.

    Hey Ryan there is a big piece of humble pie just waiting for you!

    LMAO. He was terrible. Please get a REAL comdian or let Jon Stewart and Steven Colbert, heck even Steven Carrell, host the show. Most of the presenters were funnier than Ryan. The presenters should have hosted the show. LMAO.

    I like the guy, he was soooooo funny in Knocked Up, but he did an awful job.

    ryan did just fine. the emmys suck, people don’t want to watch that sheit no matter who the host is.

    I personaly thought the show was okay, even though I changed the channel every 3mins.

    Patmycrotch Says:

    Btw who cares about TV actors? Arent they worthless? According to most posts .. everyone complains about “only being a TV actress” like it is the worst thing in the world. Serial killers have more credit then TV actors do on this site.

    You can’t blame Ryan, it had nothing to do with him. The Emmy’s are coma inducing. They are seriously boring! What makes them think we want to see these over paid celebs be rewarded with a ugly gold statue? Yawn.

    I didn’t tune in because I didn’t care about any of the shows being nominated… I don’t care about tv in general anyway. I watched the emmys via internet “updates.” That’s how the awards shows should go down anyway. You just pick and choose the clips/winners you want to watch. Skip over the hosts entirely. Now, if Mr. Wentworth Miller had been in the audience, I would have been glued to the set. Maybe. Just go ahead and say I would have been.
