Monday night's Emmys weren't bad, OK? We're not saying that.
But let's compare this ending...
"Boo boo, I love you. My beloved, I love you. My fans, I love you. MTV, I love you. Goodnight!" (cheering)
To this one...
"Have a wonderful evening. Only four days til the weekend."
...That is correct.
Look, we get it. The VMAs and the Emmys are two very different awards shows. But when you put 'em side by side, night after night, the comparisons are inevitable. And Monday night's Emmys just didn't pop like the VMAs.
