How Much Do People Really Care About the Emmys?! Seth Meyers and Billy on the Street Find Out—Watch Now!

While the 66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards are undoubtedly taking over Hollywood tonight, many folks are simply carrying on with their typical Monday night—a point perfectly illustrated by host Seth Meyers and Billy Eichner

In a special Emmy edition of Billy On the Street for Funny or Die, the two took to the streets of the Big Apple to see whether folks on the East Coast are equally as passionate about TV's biggest night. 

And unsurprisingly, the results were hilarious. 

"Ma'am, it's television's biggest night. Can you feel it?" Eichner asks one woman who immediately replied "no" before rushing off.

"Sir, for a dollar, who is your favorite talk show host: Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel or Seth Meyers?" Billy asks as Meyers stands beside him. 

"Fallon" the man replies, to which Eichner responds, "Yes, correct," handing him a dollar bill.

"Sir, for a dollar, name this year's Emmy host," the 35-year-old comedian says, once again with the host by his side. 

"I couldn't," the man replies, completely stumped before guessing "Seth MacFarlane." 

And of course, the jokes didn't stop there.

"Miss, we're taking donations for the cast of Big Bang Theory, please give," the two pleaded, asking an elderly couple to donate. 

"Miss, you're a lesbian. Are you watching Orange Is the New Black?" Eichner asks a stranger on the street.  

"Yes, but I'm not a lesbian" the woman in question replies. 

Hey, at least she's familiar with the Best Comedy Series nominees.
