Variety: Daytime Emmys to be shown on HLN

Last year's pics!
 Variety is reporting that the Daytime Emmy show will be broadcast on HLN. This is great for us as it wasn't thought there would be a program at all this year! 

 Ending the uncertainty over its broadcast future with barely a month before the black ties hit the Beverly Hilton, the Daytime Emmys have a deal for a new television home with HLN, which will televise the kudos live on June 23.
The 39th edition of the event, which had spent the past two years on CBS, will air live at 8 p.m. Eastern and 5 p.m. Pacific, with encore broadcasts to follow on HLN, which reaches approximately 95 million homes domestically. It will be the Daytime Emmys' first appearance on cable.

 "HLN focuses on news stories and information and things that our audience wants to talk about," Safon said. "That includes the celebrations like the Emmy awards. If there's a fanbase there, which for daytime television is an enormous fanbase, and the show was really going to delight that fanbase, then we were interested in presenting that -- because that's a news event to them." 

So, looks like we can watch and live tweet at the same time again this year!

I am pleasantly SURPRISED. HLN does alot of News Stories. Good for them!

I hope the awards are better than they have been these past 5 years.

Well, here's hoping no white college girls go missing on spring break or else Nancy Grace will pre-empt!
