On Baldwin, was a one-note portrayal of the president really the comedic highpoint of previous year (although, in all fairness, it did make me chuckle)?

Colbert, who presided over the awards show, corrected Trump on Wednesday's episode of The Late Show, pointing to a Variety report that the 2017 Emmys were seen by 11.4 million viewers, which is 100,000 viewers more than the 2016 Emmys.

"That was a strong and presidential response", Colbert said in regards to Trump's recent tweets. It kicked off with a frightful opening number in which preening humour vacuum Stephen Colbert sang about how Trump was a Nazi and was committing treason, and it only went downhill from there.

The president's Tuesday night tweet is a little off: The show was on Sunday, not Monday, and the ratings didn't quite hit bottom, though they were close. "I'm not even sad about it, and I was the host of the Emmys", he said.

Donald Trump has had no legislative accomplishments at all now, and he is proving to be somewhat ineffectual as President (that's me putting it kindly).

The Emmys, broadcast by CBS, were about on par with last year's ceremony in terms of total viewers. You've got to have the big numbers.

The host went on to point out how each part of Trump's tweet was "factually inaccurate".

Colbert jokingly added, "I checked the TV schedule, and he must have been watching NCIS: New Orleans".

But mostly Colbert took issue with that "worst ever" ratings barb.

According to the Associated Press, the Nielsen company estimated that 11.4 million people watched the awards show, slightly more than last year's lowest-ever audience of 11.3 million. "In your face", Colbert said, then celebrated the accomplishment by leading his audience in a "we suck less" chant.
