Total Irrelevance: Trump-Hating Emmys Hit All-Time Ratings Low

Adjustments might take a little of the sting out of the news that Sunday night’s Emmy telecast was a ratings catastrophe, but any adjustment will only make the nightmare a little less nightmarish. Instead of being the lowest-rated Emmys in its 69-year history, Sunday night’s telecast might be able to squeak into the second-lowest ever.
