Viewership for Sunday’s virtual “72nd Emmy Awards” fell to an all-time low, drawing just 6.1 million viewers, TheWrap reports.

The figure represents a 20 percent drop in viewers from last year’s broadcast, Nielsen data reveals.

The show marked the second awards ceremony hosted by Jimmy Kimmel to hit a ratings low. He also hosted the 2018 “Academy Awards,” which also attracted fewer viewers than ever before.

Were viewers not interested because the show was virtual? Or are people just not interested in TV right now?
