Did the Emmys Prove That No One Watches TV Anymore?
Last year I asked if anyone still watch the Emmys anymore. This year I'm asking if anyone even watches television anymore.
The Emmys were on this past weekend and I forgot as I usually do with most award shows. Every year around this time we're supposed to recognize excellence on television. Is that something that is hard to come by these days? Well, on the actual television I mean.
As I look at Sunday's winners I can't help but wonder if the Emmy Award should be renamed to the Netflix Award or maybe even the HBO Awards. Can television shows on prime time cable networks even compete anymore?
According to CNBC, just about 60% of Americans choose to watch streaming services like Netflix, Amazon and Hulu as opposed to basic cable packages.
Here is a list of some winners from CNN, winners from prime time are hard to come by.
Outstanding supporting actor in a comedy series
Outstanding supporting actress in a comedy series
Outstanding lead actress in a comedy series
Outstanding lead actor in a limited series or TV movie
Outstanding drama series
