Daytime Emmy Ratings Are In, Best Sunday for CW

From Broadcasting & Cable:

The 36th Daytime Emmy Awards hit another record low on the CW Sunday night, a year after delivering its lowest ratings on ABC in June 2008. This year's show delivered a 0.5/2 from 7-10 p.m. and averaged 2.2 million viewers. It scored a 1.6/3 in households. That's a dramatic decrease even from last years' 4.1/8 household number and 5.3 million viewers.

The Daytime Emmys have steadily declined throughout the decade, drawing a fraction of the viewers that turned to it in the mid-‘90s. The high-water mark of the last two decades came in 1993 when the awards show averaged a 16.4 household rating and 21.9 million viewers.

ATI's JimRomanovich tweeted his thanks to fans for The CW's highest Sunday ratings this year.

Thank you fans for giving the CW its best ratings for a Sunday night this year! This was all because of you! Thank you!


  1. That's not good news. And it's a shame that the show went from a fabulous opening number to such a horrible abrupt ending.

  2. Well Its good news when you remember the show was on the CW there was no way they werent going to post record low numbers the CW just doesnt reach enough homes to compete with the big 4 networks, what we need to be thankful for is that they posted the best Sunday night for the CW for the year.
