29 June 29th, 2014 Daytime Emmys Live Stream Notes Under 135,000 Archived Views! But What Were The Numbers Of The Initial Online Broadcast?

Courtesy/DaytimeEmmyFacebook

For those of you wondering just how did the first ever live-stream of the Daytime Emmys equate in numbers of those who watched online, well,  while no data has been supplied for the actual initial stream, according to LiveStream data on their Daytime Emmy page the 41st Annual Daytime Emmys Red Carpet Show and Awards ceremonies combined live stream was viewed 124,184 times since last Sunday June 22nd, when it was broadcast out to the web for the first time.  This number does not include the live broadcast!

In addition, LiveStream also offers up the number of views if you  watched the slammed red carpet debacle after Sunday’s original airing hosted by “millennials”, Brittany Furlan, Lauren Elizabeth, Meghan Rosette and Jessica Harlow! That stream shows it has been viewed 3,647 times.  And if you just viewed the awards ceremonies this week hosted by Kathy Griffin, that is showing up at just over 7,000 views as of now, which rounded out with the top number gives roughly just under 135,000 views post-stream.

In addition, Yahoo TV and other outlets did stream the Daytime Emmys and those numbers have not been factored in to the total.  And no other data has been supplied by the producers of the show as to any other viewer numbers as of this time.

So what do you think about the numbers of people checking out the Emmy post-ceremonies?  Surprised? Not surprised?  Glad not more people have viewed the embarrassing red carpet show?  Do you hope many more watched the live ceremonies when it streamed for the first time last Sunday?   Weigh-in!

    Except for a few moments the show was rather dreadful. Why the Celeb’s think swearing is a riot I don’t understand. But I do not plan on watching again.
    I will read the winners the next day.

    Yeah the problem with it being on the web is you cannot FF through the cooking awards, Spanish awards, and Classless Griffin! I to will just read the results the next day and look here for any video worth watching.

    Sharon Osborne is disgusting. Her husband is a walking drug company and she has raised her children to be as vile as she is. I cannot stand any of the Osbornes. Their act is over! I think it shows how juvenile you can be to swear just to swear.

    The Redcarpet was an abarrassment ! Those girls had NO clue to what the Daytime TV was. As for the show, I felt bad for our hardworking Daytime TV people. I love my daytime TV. Been a fan of ABC tv forever. When One Life to Live was cancelled, I thought a bestfriend had died. I am thrilled that Frank and Ron are now making magic at General Hospital!!!! My grandma got me started on that Beautiful show!!! The pioneer Soap of ABC!!!! Long Live Daytime Love in the Afternoon!!!!!!

    If they ever trash our soaps the way they trash the emmy show you can kiss the remaining four goodby…me and some others i know wont support that kind of garbage…i want the last four to survive but it seems most behind the scenes do not and those behind the emmy fiasco seem to be proof of that!!!

    I totally agree with you!! What an embarrassment. The daytime actors, writers, directors, producers ans so on deserve so much more!!!

    The show was terrible…ive seen some of the British soap opera awards and theirs were classy and entertaining…like Kerri i will not support our American soap awards show ever…call me a prude i dont care…i have good taste and im not giving it up to support that kind of garbage…why cant our shows be more classy and entertaining like the British…TPTB behind our soaps need to go on youtube a watch Coronation Street and see what a great soap should be like and watch clips from their award show and learn that good taste and some class minus the filth can attract a huge audience!!!

    I would hope (and this may be foolish of me), that TPTB at the NATAS would soon learn their lesson and get real daytime journalist with integrity, like Michael Fairman, to do the red carpet interviews next time. I hope that the show is going back to TV next year, as I’ve read. But all in all, I don’t think the numbers, underwhelming as they seem, represent the interest from those who watch daytime. IF TPTB would put more soap stars on screen, paid tribute to the soaps respectfully and promoted the Emmys, I think there might be a larger audience. I look back at previous years’ Emmy broadcast and see soap star after star and am thrilled. Then I look at the past few years, when the soap stars were hardly on and am saddened. NATAS allowed this to happen and if they want to recapture viewers, they need to up the ante.

    Yes, if Micheal Fairman would do the red carpet id definately would watch…and i agree with everything else you said!!!

    I completely agree with you Rodd but I don’t think daytime journalists are the sort of glitzy Red Carpet fashion image they were looking for. However maybe a good compromise would have been to have some of the daytime actresses handle the Red Carpet fashion reporting and also have press room interviews by the soap journalists. Really, who needed 2 hours of those babbling bimbos?

    As for the awards themselves, I think Kathy Griffin was a totally inappropriate choice to host. Whether one loves her comedy or hates it, this wasn’t a celebrity roast. The evening was supposed to be about the Academy members honoring the standout work of their peers. Her obnoxiously telling JFP to get off the stage was utterly jaw dropping.

    I saw on another site that an insider claims that the producers basically told NATAS to butt out and they had no say in the actual production of the show. But who hired the producers? I mean, it’s not like there was an actual tv network running the show.

    This debacle made the show a few years back that was basically a big commercial for Las Vegas tourism look downright classy in comparison.

    I be curious to find out if there is any way of discovering how many people outside the US watched. Did they really get that global audience they were shooting for? Not sure the show seen is the kind of impression NATAS should want to represent the best of their members—across the globe– Were they aware they were watching an prestigious award show, because from the bits I saw it looked a lot like those reality shows on cable– you know the ones, where all the drunken women curse and act make fools out of themselves in public— hard to tell difference this year. LOL

    So sad, horrible and nasty what was shown.Where is class and dignity.Bring back respect and real Morals and serious entertainment because it sucks what is being shown sometimes on TV and they need to return to the elegant and classy material this industry had once upon a time

    I am not currently watching any soaps but this number sounds really sad, 135,000 for a show that used to draw millions on TV. I wonder if this is the approximate size of the viewing audience for the two canceled prospect park shows. Did we ever find out how many watched those? I don’t think Hulu releases actual viewership numbers. For the last few years people have said the future of soaps is online but the numbers do not seem promising. I like Kathy griffin, I know I am in the minority. I did not see the Emmy streaming but love her on Bravo.

    OWN released ratings info for the episodes it aired. But, because of the way they aired the episodes – repeating on some days – the results were difficult to pinpoint at a glance. IIRC, each episode never received more than 250,000 viewers total (adding up all the airings). And people wonder why no channel or network will invest in relaunching a daytime soap – it’s the numbers!

    Yep!!! It is all about the numbers. 135,000 views for an international broadcast is not good news. Heck!! Headline News got 935,000 viewers and that was on a cable network. IIRC the last broadcast on a network got a poltry 2.5 million viewers. The Katrashians on E! can get at least 2 mil viewers to watch that train wreck. Daytime is donzo. Fans complaining about curse words, they complained about those 4 dimwit red carper hosts but if you’re loyal to the genre you will watch no matter what. Hell!!! even the housewives show can get at least a million viewers. WTF is really going on?

    None of Daytime’s royalty showed up to accept their awards and it has and always will be the black sheep of TV programming so just announce the noms, announce the winners, then let Soap Central and Michael Fairman have their own video podcast where he interviews the noms and winners in a small studio and takes questions from Skype and Twitter. In other words, let the soap community throw their own party and get the fans involved.

    But the Daytime Emmy awards are more than just the four soaps; it isn’t about soaps celebrating soaps, it is about NATAS celebrating its members in all programming that airs in the daytime, not just soaps. Soap fans might not care about the cooking shows, or game shows, but those people work hard on their shows and deserve time in the sun as much as soaps. If the soap community wish to form their own award show that honor just soaps that would be cool with me– but hijacking the Daytime Emmy awards to focus just on soaps isn’t fair to other daytime programming.

    Why doesn’t the viewers get to see the award show????? If not for us, there would be no shows, it is chicken 100% for not allowing us to be able to root for our favorite shows, actors, actress, & then the ones we want killed off the shows. But you do it when you choose to, then TELL US who won…….. It is not far, nor is it right. You break in to our shows for any reason, so if you are allowed to do that then take a station & use it. I am just an old disable home maker, watch certain shows, buy the products you push on us, yet we are not allowed to watch them, Day, or night it does not matter you have shows on the television that does not belong on there, but they are there…….One ticked off old lady………………..

    The Pre-ShowRed Carpet was a complete and total disaster! Initially I thought nothing could top that,but I was wrong, the last 4 minutes after those two dumb girls, ended their sho and forgot to turn off their mikes and the camera crew chased them down the hall to the ceremony, with them screaming, and talking about women’s body parts being exposed. Then there was Kathy G. Her opening was crass , rude, and she was uglier, than I have ever seen get before. no wonder she is on the D list……Sharon Osborne and Sheryl, from the ripoff of the a View, Aldo known as “THE TALK” was the worst part of the show, Sharon Has the most filthy mouth in Hollywood!! The ending wasn’t nice either, JFP swearing, onstage, with Kathy ? Was vulgar, and shows how much class, or less class she had. the show was a tasteless,parade of
    vulgarity. The networks will never do Daytime Awards again , I do reserve my harshest criticism for the Daytime Academy itself, for hiring the producers for putting this trash on line, don’t they do a complete run through, like the Academy a Awards, with scripted dialogue, teleprompters ? The Academy got this dead wrong!!! Again,? The numbers, I don’t think they thought they were going to be half as bad, but they were even worse than Last year on HLN…….I am not surprised

    Better not to even who these awards given the lack of class and respect that is shown. I didn’t watch any of the live streams, just clips on youtube after the fact. If someone would have the decency to just edit just the soap reels into a cohesive set that the fans could enjoy that would be great. As for the emmy telecast, it is a pure disgrace. May it never be shown again.
