    The Big Bang Theory… gonna have a great new season. I think.

  2. Anonymous says:

    This must be the first time in a long time that the Emmys were #1 in the ratings, even if it was in August.

  3. Bill Gorman says:

    For a very long time the Emmys would have *no* chance of being #1 when broadcast in September.

  4. Anonymous says:

    I’m surprised The Emmys beat football, I know it was a just a preseason game but still, the emmy people should be happy with those numbers
