I am glad we will see the Daytimr Emmys. I think the daytime genre is treated very unfair. The daytime population have a lot of fans that respect and care about them

April Graham

I agree completely. I feel like Daytime shows, the stars, creators, writers, etc & the fans of daytime shows are being disrespected by the Daytime Emmys not being aired on tv. There are still alot of us out here who greatly enjoy oyr daytime shows.

Patricia Sanderson

It is a travesty the way they treat the Daytime Soap Operas. I have watched the Soap Operas for 56 years. All Daytime Emmy’s on TV for years until recent ones.. The actors and people behind of the shows deserve so much more. Day time Actors work so hard,,,Ask any Big Screen Actor, many, many were Soap Opera actors and say how little they work the Big Screen compared to the many pages of scrip and work in a Soap Opera. We have tons of music shows and Screen shows. The Daytime actors deserve a show of their own. I always waited for this Daytime Emmy. I am so disappointed and will not watch TV tonight. I’ll struggle to watch it where I can. Go GH and Y&R. I miss AMC, OLTL…


I agree. I felt disrespected as a viewer not to have the 2017 daytime emmy’s aired on live television. I would have enjoyed watching the winners accepting their awards, listening to their acceptance speaches. The sponsor’s of these shows should be scratching their heads.


Whoa!!! What an all-star, has-been, never-was roster!! Lol. Best keep that off television!!


This is a great idea!

Noreen cunningham

I was really hoping it would be televised, but I will try and pick it up. Love my GH and would love to see my favorites there.

April Graham

There ought to be a way to get the” PTB” to start airing the Daytime Emmys on tv again. The daytime community & we, the fans of daytime deserve that.

Tammy Kreiss

Happy for those with a phone that can do live stream. My phones all are too slow. :'(

Lou piikes

You don’t have a laptop red or desk top computer?

Tammy Kreiss

Haven’t used a desktop in yrs! Laptop was full & needed to transfer files to a hard drive. Way too busy to address it. I barely have a second to blink! Haven’t been on there in yrs either.

James R. Poissant

I guess if we at least get to see the Emmys, it is something. Of course i would have preferred the show being broadcast on live TV but I’ll still get to see the statues being handed out as opposed to reading about it in Soap Opera digest.

Max Daddee

I am disappointed that it won’t be on live TV. I’d a hoped someone like Oprah would have cared to pick it up on OWN. Might help get ratings up on her network.

Lou piikes

Why would Oprah broadcast a program that barely gets over a 1 million viewers?

Tony Daniels

GH all the way.
Now, date and time?


I am so thrilled about this news,thanks to all that had a hand in this


The fans are not “in for a real treat”. I won’t be watching. Let me know when it’s back on TV. Show some respect to the daytime community and their fans by putting it on TV!

April Graham

I agree completely. Daytime shows, the stars, creators, writers, etc & we the fans of these shows deserve the respect that other awards shows get by being aired on tv.

Bertha Rodriguez

Still not happy as many other all other awards are shown on televised but no longer for the Daytime Emmy Awards it’s not fair. We the fans we should be able to see this live. It’s just not fair some of us might not be able to see it on Facebook or Twitter because of the different hours we work. Not happy.

Joan Faist

Just sorry it won’t be on TV.

Lou piikes

Not on Television again!!!!!! Is anyone going to save this once thriving genre??????

Jimh(leave it to beaver)
Jimh(leave it to beaver)

i will just wait to see who wins and printed here…i no longer bother with facebook or twitter!!!

Mary SF

Live steamed is better than nothing, yet I remembered the last time it was live streamed it was horrible– no way to edit out drunken slurs, the whole thing lacked the polish of a professionally produced broadcast—also there are many fans who are not into social media, don’t follow either Facebook or Twitter because they don’t know how or they simply don’t want to– it would have been nice if a major network would show some class and support this award show — I mean if a major network is willing to air The People’ s Choice Award where the winners are notified in advance of the show so there is no suspense at all– or the Kid’s Choice Awards– which is just for fun–surely the hard working members of Daytime television deserve the same–

Lou piikes

If fans don’t follow Facebook or Twitter or social media in general; no wonder the genre is dying. The vast majority of viewers can’t be bothered with or don’t know how to use social media spells doom for daytime soaps.

Mary SF

Well that is a lot of horsefeathers– the majority of daytime dramas died out long before social media even became a thing and if the genre dies it will be BECAUSE of INTERNET which is basically replacing ALL network television in general– also the WWW gave rise to everyone having a shorten attention span and stealing a whole generation of younger folks if they didn’t have social media they might have checked out daytime drama—- but I do agree the future of entertainment consumption in on the Internet or through the internet on demand — so just like in the days when television slowly replaced radio, broadcast television will be gone and hopefully in the new age, serial dramas will find a new voice and format– not like now, but a new evolution, like when serials on the radio transitioned to television.


I would love to see you do the pre-show.


so little respect to a much loved genre is mind boggling to me. what the heck is a periscope and facebook live..facebook is a platform that makes my skin about phonies trying to act like joined at the hip friends when its obviously designed to give an im better than you outlook on life. AUGHHHHHHHH..WONT BE WATCHING!!!


That man sounds like Donald will be a beautiful thing trust me..deluded moron.


Exactly! I’m surprised he didn’t say he found a television network to air the awards and Mexico is paying for it.


LOL, Matthew! They’d probably pay for the show sooner than the wall!




The DayTime Emmy’s for the Soaps is mostly a fashion show.
The judges are not all soap fans and make decisions that are rushed just getting through the entries.
Actually the time when people actually gave a ding about soap opera awards has long long long ago passed.

And why on earth would anyone care if a cooking show hosts would get an award , I mean to sit through the whole daytime to get to the soaps is annoyingly boring.

I watched one, just one, daytime emmy and never watched once since..
After the awards are given the soap winners are always posted without fail.

To the emmy watchers you have my sympathy …………… LOL


While it is a shame that it won’t get televised, the show will still be broadcast online, which is better than nothing at all, and hopefully, with Facebook Live (streaming through Youtube would have been much better IMHO), the show will also accessible outside the United States.

The key for a successful online broadcast is the same as with any live show, it has to be well-produced and polished for viewers to appreciate, and that is something I thought the producers of the show last year needed and were able to learn when they did this the second time last year, although there were flaws here and there.

Regardless, I don’t understand the misguided hatred of an online platform when Daytime itself never gets the same love from Primetime fans who view the over-all genre as inferior so there’s no reason for daytime fans to do the same on Internet media such as Facebook and the Daytime Emmys website itself.

Keri A

It’s a shame a bunch of nonsense is broadcast everyday all day. Why can’t some producers once year televise this show? A few years ago the head of CBS said that he love to help the Daytime Emmys get back on the air. Considering CBS says it’s #1 in daytime TV across the board. It’s a sham they can’t honor the shows. Daytime has always had the most loyal fans amd not to have The Emmys broadcasted on TV again is shameful. I much rather watch “my stories” (lol) then any so called reality based TV shows aired ad nauseam daily. JMO JS….



April Graham

I agree. There are still many, many loyal daytime fsns that would still love to be able to watch the Daytime Emmys on television. We, the stars, writets, etc of daytime deserve thr respect of the Daytime Emmys being on tv. Not to mention that some of us are only sble to get internet on our phones. I don’t pretend to speak for for everyone, but I have talked to several friends & family members who refuse to try to watch any show on a phone. It’s just not as enjoyable.


Can a Facebook “Livestream” be replayed? I won’t be home that night until the awards ceremony is over. Damn, I wish the Emmy were airing on tv so I could record it with my DVR.

Lou piikes

Livestream can be replayed as many times as you like whether you watch live or not.


Awesome! Thanks Lou!


Nice for savy people I guess, but wish for the rest of us it were on TV. Really miss it. So many award shows, but this is the only one that counts for me and my friends. Will miss it again.

April Graham

There ought to be a way to get someone or some group of people to air it on tv again. Besides myself, I know several people that greatly miss getting to watch it & that’s just people I know in “real” life, not to mention the people I’ve met on facebook, twitter, that also feel the same way.

Barbara from Atlanta

I think it is time to either (1) scale the entire Daytime Emmy Awards ceremony back to a nice, low-key lunch where the awards are given or (2) end the affair completely.

I have been a soap opera fan for 50 years and am not advocating for the demise of the industry. However, when this ceremony can’t even find a network (traditional or cable) to broadcast it out of the roughly 50 options that would be available, it is time to reconsider the approach. It is degrading this ceremony has been reduced to on-line streaming. (No offense to this site but the efforts by the soap media to present on-line streaming as some fantastic thing are inane).




Isn’t it the truth. .they act like streaming is the HOLY GRAIL of viewership. .IT’S NOT! When it comes to these awards fans want the luxury and pride of watching a TELEVISED event. Back in the day you even got a well produced nighttime episode of one of the networks daytime dramas the Emmys aired on. Well and truly over it. It’s probably a chore to them to even have to bother at all. I’m with you on the luncheon. .they’d probably do it at hometown buffet the JERKS.


Streaming offers a real-time accessibility that a television set cannot fully duplicate. Think of it as an evolution of what has been started off with radio.


Real time access meaning wonky camera angles…a flash shot of the carpet and a table leg…making you feel as if the camera man stumbled…a forehead shot……I hear Ya.


If you watched last year’s Daytime Emmy’s, it’s anything but what you described. It was basically a live television broadcast except it was not shown on TV with the added plus of no commercial interruption even if it sucks that the awarding ceremony have no sponsors to offset the costs of production.


JAMES i tried to watch just like i tried when POP forever made up execs minds cable and network just aren’t viable for these shows. Explaining myself would be like trying to convince a MAGA enthusiast why TRUMP is ALL TYPES OF WRONG..YOU CAN’T. That being said EVERY cable and network drama ALL use the daytime story telling mode to prolong their existence in prime time TV. It’s a proven and written about fact. If ANY genre deserves respect it’s the hallowed halls of daytime. Relegating these awards to a steaming platform-albeit at the last possible moment no less-is wrong..stomach turning..disheartening and not worth the headache to sit through..but you enjoy…I’m old school..the UK shows mad respect for its soaps..labels them as such but they’re better than some of our prime time shows. Their awards are televised and for the first time this year live so no one can spoil the outcome. I’ll be watching. Thanks to two platforms including monthly subscription Brit Box which they did for Americans from ITV and the BBC I have all my soaps back. Plus the soap awards live. Admittedly add of last month I now only watch Y&R…if i want to watch cartoons I’ll watch Star Wars Rebels…GUARDIANS and MARVEL on Disney xd ..oh and don’t let me forget the Irish soap RED ROCK on Amazon. Enjoy your awards show.


And if you want to know why DAYS is failing AMAZON has a preview of Ted Cordays novel Ladies of the Lake…I’m an avid reader and love a good book. I recently finished Out of the Dark and am now well into FootFall and the saga of the Fithps..I was not amused to say the least. Just bad.


davlestev1: The UK has a TV viewing population that is a fraction of that of the US, and their daily soap operas air on both daytime and primetime, including soaps imported from Australia so more or less soaps across the pond have equal footing as primetime scripted shows and that is reflective on their award shows.

You can’t really compare two widely different TV markets.

Mary SF

Actually the Emmy Awards– well in fact most long running award shows started out as private industry awards– somewhere along the lines, some network suit realized there was money to be made by televising these industry awards and making them essentially a three hour commercial promoting networks or studios shows and films. So I totally agree, these industry awards, given for and by those who work within the same field should be private affairs– that includes all them, film, television, theater and music–


RIGHT!! Even Knickelodian televises a freaking kids choice awards. You can even tune into the best dog in show’s a travesty.


I would like to know why nbc abc and cbs wont show it


It’s a money losing proposition for whatever network would do it. The production costs and low ratings combine to make it not worthwhile for any network. Back in the day, all 3 networks had multiple shows to nominate. Nowadays, CBS would be the only one that might have a slight interest (with 2 soaps, 2 game shows and 1 talk show).

NATAS should make it available on their own website – unless FB and Tw are paying some production costs.



Lou piikes

Soaps are a business and networks don’t produce shows for charity.


JK…no network “cares” about fans. Like Lou piikes said…it’s a business. If they don’t find it cost-effective it’s not happening.


I understand that fans do not count and that this is a ” business”.

All three major networks has a soap opera. GH (ABC) DOOL (NBC) and CBS (Y&R and B &B).

Why don’t the 3 networks split the cost ?

I see that they are streaming on social media which I do not partake in so I guess I will miss this year 🙁

RATINGS: DAYS Overtakes GH And Takes The Number Three Spot!

Following their triple-crown victory of winning Outstanding Daytime Drama Series, Writing Team in a Drama Series, and Directing Team honors at the 45th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards, Days of our Lives continued their upswing when the recent ratings were released this week.

For the week ending April 30th through May 4th, DAYS moved past General Hospital as the third most-watched soap opera. Considering DAYS has been in the fourth position of all four soaps for the last several years, this is definitely worth noting.. DAYS came in with 2,301,000 average total viewers for the ratings week, while GH had 2, 288,000. In addition, GH tied an all-time low in the womens 18-34 ratings share.

As for The Young and the Restless, they also lost the most viewers for the week with -174,00, while coming in at 4,089,000 total viewers. Even though they remain at number one and are far ahead of the other three soaps, it seems the show, which in the past has hovered around 4.5 million a week, is down. In addition, the ratings reflected that B&B is now tied with Y&R for the number one show in the womens demo 18-34, and Y&R has tied some lows in total households, and the women 18-49 ratings share.

The Bold and the Beautiful remains second of the soaps with 3,227,00 viewers, but is down over 100,000 total viewers from last year at this time. View the entire ratings picture via SON here. (more…)
