By attracting just a few thousand more viewers than CBS did last year, NBC can claim bragging rights for the highest rated of the four airings by the broadcast networks on this rotation of the Emmy Awards wheel. The telecast attracted 13.5 million viewers, as compared with last year's total of 13.47 million.

Because of the peacock network's ongoing commitment to the NFL, the Emmys were once again pushed up into late August, rather than the traditional date in mid-September. While the overall TV audience is smaller at this time of the summer, the competition is also of a lower wattage.

9/20/09 - CBS - 8.7 rating/14 share (13.47 million)
9/21/08 - ABC - 8.2/13 (12.3 million)
9/16/07 - FOX - 8.4 /14 (12.9 million)
8/27/06 - NBC - 10.6/17 (16.1 million)
9/18/05 - CBS - 12.5/20 (13.7 million)
9/19/04 - ABC - 9.4/15 (13.7 million)
9/21/03 - FOX - 11.8/19 (17.9 million)
9/22/02 - NBC - 13.5/21 (19.9 million)
11/4/01 - CBS - 11.4/16 (17.1 million)
9/10/00 - ABC - 14.2/23 (21.7 million)
9/12/99 - FOX - 11.7/19 (17.4 million)
9/13/98 - NBC - 13.6/23 (19.3 million)
9/14/97 - CBS - 13.5/21 (18.7 million)
