by Brief Staff  |  09.19.2016

The 68th Annual​ Primetime Emmys hit an all-time ratings low on Sunday night, but the telecast still led all entertainment series in the week ended Sunday, Sept. 18 with 2.65 million interactions.

Still, football proved its power both on TV and on social, with the top-eight football games, both NFL and college, outscoring the Emmys on social. The most social game was Monday Night Football’s match-up of the Pittsburg Steelers at the Washington Redskins.
