BREAKING NEWS: Daytime Emmy Awards to be Televised on HLN!

Fantastic news soapers!  Finally, after some back and force, NATAS and HLN have reached a deal and the 39th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards have found a broadcast home and will be televised for the first time on a cable network!

Variety had this report just a little awhile ago!  “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.   A host has not been finalized but is expected to be announced within the next two weeks.

National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences chairman Malachy Wienges told Variety that the daytime community was “unhappy” with the previous two shows.  The organization went to several producers looking for a fresher take.  “After the last show, the daytime community approached NATAS and said that if we have to do the show in 2012 the exact same as in 2010 and 2011, we would rather have an un-televised event and just have a sit-down dinner and honor ourselves in Beverly Hills.” Wienges said.   The new approach will focus on a celebration of daytime TV at a time of transition for the industry, which has seen such defining dramas as  All My Children and One Life to Live leave the air in the past year.

“This has to be as much a tribute to daytime television as an awards show,”  said Gabriel Gornell who along with Colleen Seldin will produce this years telecast.  That being said, Gornell asserted that the awards themselves — which spread across a number of genres that include animation, game shows, talk, culinary and children’s programming — wouldn’t be marginalized.   “While we pay tribute to television, it’s the awards that are going to get us there. This show is probably going to have more awards than previous years and is probably going to have fewer song-and-dance numbers than previous years.”

Word of HLN’s interest in the Daytime Emmys emerged in early May. HLN exec veep and general manager Scot Safon said that from the first moment the cabler was approached in March as a potential television partner, there was a natural fit.

“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.”

HLN and parent company Turner, which also provides the annual home for the Screen Actors Guild awards on TNT and TBS, are developing a number of promos to draw attention to the kudocast. “From the very beginning, it really came down to finding the right broadcast television partner that understood what we we’re trying to accomplish,” Gornell said, “not only creatively but from a messaging standpoint, that also had the platform resources to get behind it.”

The Daytime Emmys will now hopefully get the break they needed and we can truly honor daytime that way it should be for the hard work and performances and series, the fans around the world love every day.  So, soapers, what do you think of the news?  Let us know!

This is great news! Everybody who has basic cable should get HLN (Headline News)! If you get CNN, you should get it since it’s owned by the same company. At least something is finally going right for the soaps!

Lipstickcat, Good Grief, I have been all over here trying to find a place I can post back to you, Yes I still have soapnet, for how long I don’t know. I have direct tv. So yes I get to still watch the soaps in the evening, direct tv, They have a poll to see how many people watch the soaps and which soaps I watch and would want back sure would be nice if they took one life to live and put it on.

This is wonderful news!!!!!! Thank you HLN and those that brought this to fruition. I am also glad to hear that this broadcast will focus more on the awards (which in turn means those nominated for them), rather than song and dance numbers. Last year ‘s broadcast was more like an ad for Vegas than a tribute to the work of those in Daytime TV, so I am truly looking forward to this refreshing change. I also look forward to a much well deserved tribute to AMC and OLTL, and big wins for GH, AMC and OLTL. I cannot wait… Read more »

Love HLN’s decision. So happy that it sounds like they’ll dispense with the “Vegas Show” type of broadcast, and focus back on the Daytime shows, the performers, and the fan base.

Great! Sounds like it won’t be an travemercial this year. I’d like to see clips from the nominees. Yes, fewer song and dance numbers and ads as part of the show would be very nice. I get why it was that way previously, but it was insulting to daytime and viewers. I also think it’s great that it will have multiple airings. Looking forward to a good show. Hope they get a good host. Either someone who works in daytime (soap hopefully) or worked in daytime or is a fan and knowledgeable about the genre.

I’m so happy that the Daytime Emmys will be broadcast next month on HLN! Many thanks to them. I like what I’m hearing about plans to concentrate more on the awards themselves and the tributes to AMC and OLTL. How wonderful would it be if those two beloved shows were resurrected on one of the Turner networks? They would be getting a built-in and very loyal fan base, that’s for sure!

Kelly Ripa’s First Book On the Way in 2022

Former All My Children star, now co-host of Live with Kelly and Ryan and a successful executive producer in her own right, Kelly Ripa, will add writer to her list of credits.

New this week is that Ripa is sharing a look at her real-life in a book, that will be released next spring in April of 2022.

According to the intel, the book entitled Live Wire will feature sharp, funny, and honest collection of real-life stories from Ripa, showing the many dimensions and crackling wit of the beloved daytime talk show host.

As soap fans know, Ripa has been married to Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo, AMC) and the two share three children together.

The loglines for the release share: “In Live Wire, Kelly shows what really makes her tick. As a professional, as a wife, as a daughter and as a mother, she brings a hard-earned wisdom and an eye for the absurdity of life to every minute of every day. It is her relatability in all of these roles that has earned her fans worldwide and millions of followers on social media. Whether recounting how she and Mark really met, the level of chauvinism she experienced on set, how Jersey Pride follows her wherever she goes, and many, many moments of utter mortification (whence she proves that you cannot, in fact, die of embarrassment) Kelly always tells it like it is. Ms. Ripa takes no prisoners.
Surprising, at times savage, a little shameless and always with humor… Live Wire shows Kelly as she really is offscreen—a very wise woman who has something to say.”

So intrigued to read Kelly’s book when it is released next year? Comment below.

All My Children Stars and Eileen Davidson On New Episode of Virtual Game Show “Soap Opera Know-It-All”

Imagine being in the hot seat and having some of your soap opera favorites trying to stump you with trivia, while trying to best your competition.  Well, that’s what four contestants faced as they battled it out in the ultimate soap trivia game, Soap Opera Know-It-All.

The Michael Fairman Channel just released its fifth episode of its season, where in round one of the game play, stars from the beloved All My Children served up the questions including: Cady McClain (Ex-Dixie), Jill Larson (Ex-Opal), Lindsay Korman-Hartley (Ex-Cara), Vincent Irizarry (Ex-David) and Jacob Young (Ex-Y&R).  In addition, the former cast members from Pine Valley also try to stump viewers at home with some additional character-related questions.

Later in the episode, there is a very special appearance by Eileen Davidson (Y&R, Ex-Days, Santa Barbara and B&B).  It is Eileen who reveals and asks the final question of the game to determine the eventual winner.

For this edition, host Michael Fairman welcomed longtime soap fans: Michael Cochran, Sean McKinley, and Robert Davis along with returning champion, David Bursky for this soap deep-dive competition.

Trivia questions from the following daytime and primetime soaps were put to the players during the game: All My Children, As the World Turns, Dark Shadows, General Hospital, Knots Landing, Sunset Beach, Days of our Lives, Dynasty, Edge of Night, One Life to Live, Port Charles and The Young and the Restless.

As the series moves through its now back-half of the season, the winning contestant must defeat the competition for the right to move on to the next episode to face three more challengers all in pursuit of the “Know-It-All” title with special soap-related prizes along the way.

Watch the episode below and make sure to subscribe to the Michael Fairman Channel for more interviews, music and more.
