The 2013 Emmy Nominees -- AKA "The Cable ACE Awards"

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/07/18/emmy-nominees-full-list_n_3616535.html?icid=maing-grid7%7Cmaing5%7Cdl2%7Csec1_lnk3%26pLid%3D345594

About 5 million people watch "Game of Thrones".  2.8 million people watched the finale of  "Breaking Bad."

How few people watch these "great" shows -- well, in summer rerun season, Game of Thrones' best numbers would equal "Masterchef" and come in about 15th.  Breaking Bad's numbers would get it immediately canceled.

Not to say that these are not good shows, but it hardly helps Emmy viewership when basically no one at home has ever seen the proposed winners.

Kelsey Grammer won for "Boss" - weekly viewership - around 900,000

You focus on the low viewership of "Game of Thrones" and "Breaking Bad" (which are somewhat misleading because those networks rerun the shows numerous times) over "House of Cards" which is on Netflix only?

House of Cards shouldn't qualify at all.

You are correct.
