The 72nd Emmy Awards on Sunday attracted a total of 6.1 million viewers on ABC, a new level for the annual award show.

The overall audience for these Emmys, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, dropped 29% from last year’s Fox by host-less turn. Among adults 18–49, the decline was 13%.

Sunday’s Emmys were more hits than appearing on TV on social media. The previous night’s broadcast was the most socially entertaining show on Sunday, with a total social interaction of 11.9 million. This is 108% up from the 2019 Emmy Awards. Of course, an increase in social-media adoption and usage may account for a large part of that increase.

The special’s 6.1 million total viewers since the April 5, 2020 “American Idol” episode represent ABC’s largest audience on Sundays from 8 PM ET to 11 PM ET.

Last year, the Emmys eventually adjusted to a rating of 1.7 between 7 million viewers and adults 18-49. The initial decline from the 2018 special at the event was -32% and -33% respectively.
