'Sunday Night Football' Clobbers Emmys in Huge Ratings Victory

Despite competition from "The 71st Primetime Emmy Awards," NBC's "Sunday Night Football" scored a huge ratings victory as the most-watched show of the evening. The Browns-Rams game garnered a 12.8 rating and a 23 share, Variety reports. Meanwhile, the once-popular awards telecast hit an all-time low, eking out a dismal 5.7 rating and a 10 share. That represents a 32 percent drop in viewership from last year's ceremony. Marking the Browns' first appearance on "Sunday Night Football" since 2008, the game set a ratings record in Cleveland, where it achieved an impressive 38.5 rating/60 share, according to Nielsen. Which is more true: A) No one cares about the Emmy Awards anymore; or B) America really loves football? What improvements would you make to the Emmys in an effort to boost ratings?
