Postponed for months because of last year’s Hollywood writers and actors strikes, the 75th Primetime Emmy Awards will finally be handed out on Monday night.
The Emmys are arriving just over a week after the Golden Globes, which also include TV honors. And just like at those awards, HBO’s dynastic dramedy “Succession” is set to dominate.
It is unclear, however, how many people will actually see this happen. Viewing numbers for the Emmy Awards have been trending downward over the years — the most recent ceremony, in September 2022, brought in a record low audience of 5.9 million people on a night when the award show had little competition. This year, the Emmys will go head-to-head against an N.F.L. playoff game between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and against live coverage of the Iowa caucuses.
Emmy producers hope to lure viewers with homages to classic television shows including “The Sopranos,” “Grey’s Anatomy” and “I Love Lucy.” Perhaps others will be curious about how or to what extent the ceremony will address last year’s SAG-AFTRA and Writers Guild of America strikes.
