Emmys could use regular home after record-low ratings
Michelle Williams accepts the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or Movie award for "Fosse/Verdon" onstage during the 71st Emmy Awards at Microsoft Theater on Sept. 22, 2019, in Los Angeles. Every other major awards show has one. The noble idea was that everyone would be invested in the Emmys, and thus have a stake in its success. The Television Academy renewed its broadcast deal last year, ensuring that the awards would continue to rotate among the Big Four through 2026. Overall, preliminary ratings for the Emmys swooned by more than 20% compared to last year, the kind of drop that gets people's attention.
