Emmys: 13 Outstanding Comedy and Drama Nominees, Ranked by Total Viewers (Photos)

Here are the Emmys nominees for Outstanding Comedy Series: “Black-Ish,” “Master of None,” “Silicon Valley,” “Modern Family,” “Transparent,” “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” and “Veep.”

And here are the shows competing to be named top drama at the Emmys this weekend: “The Americans,” “Better Call Saul,” “Downton Abbey,” “Game of Thrones,” “Homeland” and “Mr. Robot.”

TheWrap has ranked most of those titles by their currently nominated season’s total viewer (people aged 2+) average per episode, using Nielsen’s Live + 7 Day metric, which includes a week’s worth of delayed viewing. Unfortunately, Nielsen doesn’t report the proprietary numbers for streaming services like Netflix and Amazon.

But did we give up on those three series? No sir! TheWrap hit up audio-recognition measurement company Symphony Advanced Media to get some numbers for “Kimmy,” “Transparent” and “Master of None.” That system, however, only count Adults 18+, so these are admittedly apples-to-oranges comparisons when talking about teenagers.

There’s one other somewhat similar imperfection worth pointing out — while Nielsen measures HBO linearly, it doesn’t chart streaming options Go and Now. Therefore, that premium television network would argue its figures are understated here.

As readers can see by clicking through the gallery, the ABC sitcoms are doing quite well, though “Downton Abbey” and “Game of Thrones” breaks up that party.
