Emmys Hit All Time Ratings Low! Find Out What Program Pummeled The Award Show HERE!

Well, we enjoyed the Emmys!

The award show had several funny and memorable moments last night. Not only did Andy Samberg do a great job as host, but Viola Davis becoming the FIRST African American woman to win an Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series was inspiring!

Unfortunately this wasn't enough to pull audiences in as it only managed 11.9 million total viewers on Sunday — 20 percent down from last year's award show.

We knew the early numbers were low, but we had no idea how low! It's actually the worst-rated Emmys of all time!

Last year's ceremony — on NBC rather than FOX — likely did better because it aired in August on a Monday not in September on a Sunday — facing off against NBC's Sunday Night Football, which nearly doubled the amount of viewers!

What do you think? Do these Emmys numbers surprise you?

We wouldn't be happy either!

Don't get us wrong, the Emmys were AH-Mazing last night. Andy Samberg had a great opening segment, everyone got a free HBO login and password, and Amy Schumer and Viola Davis both won!

What could have made the night better?!
