Has anyone here *ever* watched the Emmy Awards on TV?

I have not. Quick show of hands please.

TV Ratings: Emmy Awards Sink 33% to Record Low
Variety
Sunday night’s hostless Emmys on Fox were likely hoping to emulate the Oscars ratings success in cutting out an emcee.

However, according to Nielsen figures, the 2019 Emmys have gone the way of seemingly all awards shows and plummeted to an all-time low.

...
My question is who the fuck (other than those in the business) ever watched that shit, let alone why they stopped.

... The stars were suns, but so far away they were just little points of light ... The scale of the universe suddenly opened up to me. It was a kind of religious experience. There was a magnificence to it, a grandeur, a scale which has never left me. Never ever left me.

Never.
Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.
