One of the funnier bits of the Emmys was Billy Eichner's uproarious bit, in which he hit the streets with Seth Meyers to quiz the general populace about television. The verdict: people know nothing about television.

Eichner's manic questioning and over-opinionated personality are put to good use here, making it as funny as any Billy on the Street episode. You can watch an extended version below.
