Emmy Ratings Droop Against Pirates

“The annual trophy-fest drew 16.2 million viewers on NBC. It was the Emmy show’s second smallest audience since 1990, when it aired on Fox, which was in its infancy and not available in some parts of the country. Opposite the Emmys, ABC’s Sunday telecast of “The Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl” drew nearly 10 million viewers to become the most watched theatrical film on television this year.”
