Emmys viewership down

Held on a Monday for the first time since 1976, the annual Primetime Emmy Awards won the night in viewers, according to Nielsen ratings.

Elsewhere on network television, Fox boasted solid Monday night ratings with Gordon Ramsay shows “Masterchef” and “Hotel Hell.”
The culinary competition show took second most watched in the key demo, with a rating of 2.0, even with last week. A total of 5.3 million people tuned in, making it the third-most-watched program of the night. Meanwhile, “Hotel Hell” was third in the key demo with a rating of 1.6.
