Breaking Bad cast celebrates their Emmy win

Early numbers say that the Emmy Awards attracted about 17.6 million viewers to Sunday night’s broadcast, according to CBS, making it the most-watched Emmys telecast in total viewers since 2005. (Ellen DeGeneres hosted that year, also on CBS.)

It’s worth noting the numbers did drop steadily across the entire show, as only about 11 million seem to have stuck around until the very end to see “Breaking Bad” win for drama series and “Modern Family” scoop up its fourth consecutive win for comedy. “Breaking Bad,” meanwhile, really did have a great night. In addition to its big wins, the penultimate episode (airing directly opposite the Emmys at 9 p.m. on AMC) nabbed 6.6 million viewers, the most ever in the show’s history. Expect that record to be broken next week for the series finale.
