Emmy ratings on par with last year

Event down a tenth of a point in key adult demo from 2009

Despite airing live on both coasts, NBC's Emmy telecast is holding roughly steady in the ratings from last year.

The 62nd Annual Primetime Emmy Awards was seen by 13.5 million viewers and delivered a 4.1 adults 18-49 rating Sunday evening.

That's down a tenth of a point in the key adult demo from 2009, though higher than the event's all-time ratings low of 2008.

NBC says the ceremony is the "top-scoring Emmy Awards in total viewers in four years" when using non-rounded numbers (13.503 million vs. 13.471). The numbers include two West Coast airings: the live telecast and 8 p.m. repeat.
