ABC TELEVISION NETWORK SCORES SIX EMMY WINS SUNDAY NIGHT, MORE THAN ANY OTHER BROADCAST NETWORK, BRINGING ABC'S EMMY TOTAL TO A BROADCAST NETWORK-TOPPING 16

The ABC Television Network won six Emmys at Sunday night's 57th annual Primetime Emmy Awards ceremony, more than any other broadcast network. These wins bring ABC to a broadcast network-topping total of 16, including the network's previous 10 wins at the Creative Arts Emmys.
