This year's virtual Emmy Awards was not a rating hit with viewers. The virtual edition hit an all-time rating low and was watched by an average of 6.1 million viewers compared to last year's 6.9 million and 2018's 10.2 million, reports AFP.

Jimmy Kimmel - who hosted the awards ceremony for the third time - addressed the lowest-ever Emmy ratings as he made his talk show return.

During his opening monologue on Jimmy Kimmel Live he said: "Well, I hosted the virtual Emmys last night. They're saying it was the highest-rated Emmys ever. Oh, the lowest? Oh, all right. Well, we set a record, let's just say that."
