Emmy loses

I watched the Emmys on Sunday night; did you?

You did? Well, we were the only ones, apparently. It was the lowest rated Emmy telecast in the show’s history and I’m wondering why.

These are the reasons I came up with for the terrible ratings:

1. Everyone assumed The Sopranos would sweep and the show would be boring.

2. Most of the shows and people nominated were the same as they always are, also making the show boring.

3. Lost was not nominated for best drama.

4. Ricky Gervais didn’t show up.

5. People are tired of prepared statements of lists of names no one in the audience knows or cares about.

6. Lost was not nominated for best drama.

7. The show was on Fox.

8. People saw Ellen DeGeneres riffing and realized she was a much better host than Ryan Seacrest could ever hope to be.

9. No one understood why the Frankie Valli impersonators, the Jersey Boys, were singing to The Sopranos montage.

10. Lost was not nominated for best drama.

If anyone has any other reasons aside from the above, I’d love to hear ‘em.
