Jimmy Fallon=Ratings gold. 13.5 million people tuned in to watch the 62nd annual Emmy awards, which were hosted by the funny man.
According to EW, it was the largest audience for any non-sports telecast this year since American Idol season finale on May 26. The show also earned the highest adults 18-49 rating (4.1) for any telecast since the Glee season finale on June 8.
It was the most-watched Emmy telecast in four years, and we credit Jimmy for the 0.2 percent boast from last year.
There were lots of surprises yesterday at the Emmys, which also helped keep viewers glued to the tube. Alec Baldwin and Tina Fey's reign at the Emmys ended last night when Jim Parsons from "Big Bang Theory" and Edie Falco from "Nurse Jackie" snagged up Best Actor and Actress in a comedy.
On the drama front it was the same old story for the most part as "Mad Men" won for the third year in a row, as did Bryan Cranston, the star of AMC's other big series, "Breaking Bad," but those were well deserved.
How did you feel about last night’s winners? Were you pleased or disappointed with the show overall?
