The ratings are in for Sunday night's telecast of the 42nd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards. Nearly 900,000 people watched the broadcast live, giving Pop (formerly TV Guide Network) its best ratings in eight years!
The kudofest's premiere was the most-watched live event on Pop since the network premiered Live on the Red Carpet with Joan and Melissa at the Academy Awards. Somewhere Tyra Banks is smizing.
Pop already has well-documented success in the Nielsens with repeats of CBS Daytime's The Young and the Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful. Immediately following the Daytime Emmys, the cabler launched Thinkfactory Media's Queens of Drama, a reality show about several female soap icons coming together to create a new soap. Who needs SOAPnet? Pop just might prove to be the soap opera's salvation.
