NEW YORK (AP) - Television networks must hope interest in the Emmy Awards is not a sign of things to come.

Nielsen said Monday that the annual ceremony honoring the best in TV was seen by 12.4 million viewers on Fox Sunday night. That’s about a million fewer viewers than watched each of the last two years. The Emmys’ look backward at memorable work also serves as the kickoff to a new TV season.

Competition was tough, with an NFL game getting 21.5 million viewers.

The digital recorder company TiVo says Charlie Sheen’s presentation of the best comic actor award was the moment most played back and watched on recorders.
