Emmy Awards 2016: Ratings Hit All-Time Low with 11.3 Million Viewers

"I would very much like to be the last cisgender male playing a transgender female". She also has not attended many other shows where this series was previously nominated.

Viewership for the 68th Emmy Awards fell slightly to a new ratings low as "Sunday Night Football" and a JonBené t Ramsey documentary on CBS chipped away at ABC's broadcast of the television industry's awards ceremony.

Dame Maggie Smith has hit back at Jimmy Kimmel after he mocked her for failing to turn up to the Emmy Awards.

The tweet was an olive branch in response to Kimmel's ongoing faux war of words during the ceremony. "If we call your name and you are not here to accept, the Emmy goes to the next name on the list".

Her absence was not overlooked and was one of Jimmy Kimmel's jokes in his opening monologue: "When Maggie Smith hears she's nominated for an Emmy she has the same reaction the rest of us have when we get those 20 percent off Bed Bath and Beyond coupons". She added, "What started out as a political satire, now feels more like a sobering documentary" and vowed to rebuild the wall between comedy and politics saying, "and make Mexico pay for it".

When was the last time Tennessee beat Florida in football?
Louisville (4-0) didn't slow down against a nonconference opponent on the road a week after beating Florida State 63-20 at home. It was the first time a Tennessee quarterback threw four TD passes in a game since Tyler Bray did it against Kentucky in 2012.

That of course isn't to say that Maggie Smith didn't deserve the award. She went to the Oscars to get an Oscar.

"She's Downton absent is what she is". Some executives argue that it's the cyclical nature of awards shows, which fall in and out of favor; others argue that consumer behavior is finally affecting big live event programming, which was supposed to be immune to an industrywide trend of declining ratings. But is she here in this audience tonight? Well, I don't see her. For the ninth time. "If [Trump] gets elected and he builds that wall, the first person we're throwing over it is Mark Burnett".

He ended his joke rant by stating, "I have a message for you "lame" Maggie Smith, if you're even bothering to watch".

If you've been anywhere near a TV or social media, then you know that the Emmy Awards were last night.

The threat seems to have worked, and just in time.
