Mathew Imaging/FilmMagic(NEW YORK) — This year’s Emmy Awards saw an uptick in viewership from the 2011 ceremony.

ABC’s telecast of the Emmys on Sunday night, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, was seen by an estimated 13.2 million viewers.  It aired live across the country.

Last year’s Emmys ceremony, which aired on Fox and was hosted by Jane Lynch, drew 12.4 million.

Sunday’s telecast didn’t match the audience of NBC’s Sunday Night Football, which pulled in 19.8 million viewers for a game between the Baltimore Ravens and the New England Patriots, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Showtime’s Homeland and ABC’s Modern Family won the Emmy for best drama and best comedy, respectively.
