Ratings: NFL Helps Power Emmys To Best Ratings Since 2005

65th_emmy_awardsLast nights Emmy Awards telecast on CBS featured a slew of upsets, from Stephen Colbert topping Jon Stewart to Jeff Daniels topping, well, almost everyone.

It was also a ratings bonanza for CBS. The program drew the highest ratings for an Emmys telecast since 2005, and the best adults 18-49 and adults 25-54 demo numbers since 2006. All told, an estimated 17.63 million viewers tuned in live for the three-hour awards show. Approximately 40 million people tuned into at least part of the program.

While it was up against NFL football on NBC (and the penultimate episode of “Breaking Bad” on AMC, which itself drew record ratings), the Emmys also benefited from a terrific NFL lead-in, with the New York Jets/Buffalo Bills game ending at 7:59 PM.

Your TVNewser senior editor talked about the Emmys on Mediabistro’s 2013 Emmy Postgame Show. Watch it, after the jump.
