Daytime Emmys Looking For New Broadcast Home! HLN Says "It's Fairly Definite" The Cable Outlet Will Not Air It For Third Year!

The 41st annual Daytime Emmys, or the 2014 edition, of the only televised award show that still honors the daytime soap opera is looking for a new home to broadcast the upcoming award ceremonies!

According to CBS Soaps In Depth today, HLN has decided it will almost certainly not be broadcasting the show for the third year in a row.  Albie Hecht, the network’s vice president and general manager, who started in the that position over three months ago told SID, “It’s fairly definite.”  Then added,  “I just want to put a pause on everything and figure out what we’re doing before we make any commitments. Shows like (the Daytime Emmys) need commitments in advance to plan and I don’t think we can make that commitment.”    The HLN head honcho then related in regards to NATAS search for a new TV home, “It’s only fair to let them look around and let them do what they need to do.”

David Michaels, the senior executive director of the Daytime Emmy Awards let it be known that: “We are currently exploring other avenues so that the Daytime Emmys will have a broadcast home.”

So, who do you think should air the Daytime Emmys this year?  What cable outlet is the perfect fit?  Or, do you think somehow it will return to network television?  Or, are those days over?  Weigh-in on your choices!  We have ours!

Would love to see CBS give the Daytime Emmy Awards show another chance IF they do not make it a Las Vegas commercial or some such again.

With the Eye Network enjoying top ratings for Y&R for a 25th year, why not? And though I am hesitant to even suggest it, the women of THE TALK — including Mrs Les Moonves, Julie Chen — could host. All this says “major promotion for daytime” to me. Look at all the primitem people that could step up, like Shemar Moore who is star of the web’s CRIMINAL MINDS.

Sorry but no way. CBS was horrible, awful, it made me want to throw my TV out the window. It was all about CBS and Vegas, what a coincidence CBS won all the awards. Soap awards not longer have any meaning anyway. When there were 12+ soaps it was an accomplishment. With four (online OLTL AMC don’t have a chance, OLTL was never taken seriously when in was on ABC) it’s more of an award for attendance, just showing up. 😉 They can rotate who wins it every year now. I’m not surprised HLN is dumping it, they did an… Read more »

NO! Not every cable company carries TVGN.
I’m just glad HLN isn’t carrying it again. They were horrible!

This show needs to be on network, just like the nighttime Emmys. Maybe if it was, it would be a better show.
Then again, maybe not 🙁

If they did the Daytime Emmys, without all the spectacular bling and just went with the giving of the awards with etiquette fanfare it would not need to cost millions of dollars to produce..
The awards are way too long with unnecessary filler..
If the Daytime Emmys, were done less expensive it would be easier to get a network to take them on..

Maybe the OWN network. She can tout her own soap, the Haves and Haves Not.

I think, this, is, a great, IDEA!

Com’n Ms. Winfrey! you owe… your network.. to Serial… IE: turning a profit… ie: in the black… thanks to this nighttime serial

what better way… to mend fences… and herald… what made you

and, in turn… bring all your audience… to OWN

LET’s celebrate… in these trying times… and bask

The H&HN is a nighttime show & not eligible for a daytime Emmy.

And OWN is not available on all cable companies.

I doubt HLN will o it again with all the hate post they got. hey didn’t produce them. They only aired it. They should have went after the producers not the channel. I was so glad they were on….

They should broadcast these in the afternoon like in the old days. It was elegant and simple and not tacky like it is now

Well, I would love to see ABC make a bold move and air them on their network but I do believe that the days of networks airing the Emmy’s, has come and gone. Because networks own cable channels, for example Lifetime is Disney/ABC owned, i don’t know which channels would be willing to air them, honestly.

The Daytime Emmys should air during daytime hours with the 3 netorks alternating the ceremonies.

That’s how it used to be done. The Networks alternated it. And I agree w the comment above, introduce a couple, they read the nominees, we see part of the submission reel, winner announced, thank you speech….next. None of this other garbage.

I have- been saying it for years. Prempt a Talk show and make it just a hour show with clips and awards. Easy. This was done during the Emmy’s first 16 years!

Exactly, I think that is the way it used to be and I don’t see any reason why it can’t return to that – CBS just renewed their whole daytime block, so the shows are doing well – show their daytime viewers some respect and have the Daytime Emmys on a network during the day – sans the Vegas infomercial.

Too bad. Hope someone else will step up.

NBC?

I wish one of the major networks like ABC, NBC, or CBS would step up. I think ABC and CBS should do it just for publicity reasons. ABC, while General Hospital is fantastic and has exceeded ratings expectations, people are still mad about their dual cancelations of One Life to Live and All My Children. CBS has been getting a lot of bad press lately because of the Michael Muhney firing and allegations that followed. Either of these networks hosting the Daytime Emmys could save face with some soap fans.

I agree with you!!! It bugs me that the major networks still get MAJOR revenue from their daytime shows (soaps, talk shows, court shows, educational shows, etc, etc) yet turn a blind eye when it comes to showcasing a primetime award show for those shows that generate millions for them.

Actually, I don’t think most people really care about the daytime emmys anymore. All the networks stopped airing it for a reason– no viewers. I hate to say it, but these awards should go private like the technical awards–and then every year at the primetime emmys- one or two winners from this private ceremony could be featured. Or go private but have a internet feed so those who wish to watch it could follow it on line.

I thought I better say this before I get slam— when I said most people I was referring to the majority of people who do not watch daytime television at all. I know fans of soaps would watch, but not certain our numbers during a nighttime broadcast in the eyes of the big three would be worth the bucks for the show , meaning they won’t want to preempt programs that do get big ratings to air this show if the numbers would not match–

Why not just add some categories to the regular Emmy’s and combine the 2.

Maybe Oprah will show the Daytime Emmys on one of her channels – OWN or OXYGEN. That would certainly strengthen her relationship with the Soap Fans!

ABC! Since they are responsible for taking OLTL and AMC off the air and their issue with Prospect Park, they should step up and show remorse to the fans and because General Hospital is the last daytime drama left on their network. They need to try to regain support and trust from ABC viewers. That is the least they could do.

The fact that this is being discussed is pitiful. Daytime soaps have been around forever and I for one enjoy all the award shows. It’s a chance for the fans to enjoy their favorite characters all dressed fancy and spending an evening with their peers. I loved the show when it was in Vegas, I actually attended and the actors were very gracious with their fans. I say a good choice would be OWN, Oprah has a huge fan base and alot of clout..She also is a big fan of soaps… I am sorry that people think daytime soaps are… Read more »

I think that “The 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards” should go back airing on the CW, where it contains lots of primetime drama. And, if that’s possible, I’d like to see “America’s Got Talent” host Nick Cannon sign millions of “lambs” and daytime television fans to his petition, so that his wife, singer Mariah Carey can host that awards show then. I’d like to see her try other things.

This says everything about the state of daytime television, specifically the soaps. Few people care anymore and how can you choose a best of anything with only four soaps left. I doubt any of the networks will pick it up.

Why don’t they just go back to what they did in the 70′s & 80′s when the three networks took turns airing it live in the afternoon? Makes sense .. they are the DAYtime Emmy Awards after all.

I would like to see the Daytime Emmys be presented in a time of 30 minutes on NBC during what would be the Nightly News with Brian Williams. Those special news interruptions are making me angry!!!

Just keep it a private ceremony. It’s a waste of time. TVGN can do a 30 minute highlight reel.

we all feel that cbs or basic network should air the day time emmy’s. it was disappointing that it was not on basic network , for all to see.

I was reading the comments above and I wanted to put my imput in it. I agree with everyone who mentioned the following networks. TVGN: CBS soaps air there anyway so having it there makes sense; if it’s true about limited coverage of the channel then maybe it can air live on the website too. CW: The CW is on their way to being a contender for the networks, and they’re already collecting holiday specials and award shows under their belt. Adding this is no problem for them. OWN: Oprah wanted to save the daytime dramas back then but couldn’t.… Read more »

SO not fair to everyone in involved with Daytime. Daytime is in demand for fans, public. I find daytime Emmys so much better then the other one.
Try a canadian company maybe they would take it…..I want to come and see the awards show live and I live in Toronto Canada. How does one get tickets for that anyway? thanks and everyone needs to speak up on this as we all want to see them.

It is very unfair to all of the viewing public plus the people who work in Daytime TV not to be shown on TV,I sure wish something would change so that people who don’t have computers could see the awards,Thank you,Roxy L.Bayer

It should not be aired = saw the show on live stream and it was beyond
terrible = those four chicks on the red carpet were beyond dumb and very
phony. they knew nothing about whom they interviewed =made some nasty
and inappropriate comments = kept saying amazing and awesome.
Kathy Griffin is vulgar = thought she was bad until Sharon Osborne and
Sheryl Underwood took the stage = made extremely crude vile remarks.
In addition it was a very amateur production = many pauses etc!

The awards should be on a NBC , ABC or CBS. It is not fair to all the soap opera fans & daytime fans of other shows to put it on another channel that some viewers don’t subscribe too! We are the fans, we want to watch the award show &see our favorite stars win their awards! sham on all those big wigs who profit by these shows & leave the fans out in the cold! 🙁

Mark Consuelos Exits ‘Riverdale’

Last night, All My Children alum, Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo Santos) made what appears to be his final appearance for now on CW’s soapy drama, Riverdale.

Consuelos departed Riverdale as a series regular on the season 5 finale, after coming on to the show in its second season in the role of villain, Hiram Lodge.

Riverdale executive producer and showrunner, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, shared with Deadline a statement on Consuelos contribution and run on the series: “From the moment Mark joined us, he was up for literally anything, a hundred percent committed to making Archie’s life a living hell. And what’s funny is, Mark couldn’t be more different from Hiram. A classy pro and the sweetest guy, always looking out for everyone. We wish Mark the best and hope this isn’t the last we’ve seen of Hiram Lodge.

Consuelos offered up these sentiments in a statement on his Riverdale exit: “First and foremost, I would like to thank Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa for this incredible opportunity. Never before has playing a character that was so bad, felt so good. Huge thanks to the Riverdale fandom, to the brilliant crew and amazing cast, whom I consider dear friends and family.”

So, will you miss seeing Mark on Riverdale? Elsewhere, still no word on the “Pine Valley” reboot in which Mark and wife, Kelly Ripa, are two of the executive producers of that many All My Children fans were hoping would come to fruition. Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Beloved Soap Stars Left Out of 2021 Primetime Emmy Broadcast In-Memoriam Tribute

Last night, during the presentation of the 73rd annual Primetime Emmys broadcast on CBS, the annual In-Memoriam segment brought with it so many households names in a year that saw so many legacy talents and more pass away.

The tribute was performed by Leon Bridges and Jon Batiste to Bridge’s song, “River”, and as the images of the departed played across the screens from Cloris Leachman to Cicely Tyson, to Ed Asner to Michael K. Williams, and more, it was clear that several of the major late daytime soap stars were not included in the on-air tribute as well as other omissions.

Now granted, we know they will all be a part of next year’s 49th annual Daytime Emmy Awards in-memoriam segment, but still these actors were a part of this community and not only appeared on the soaps, but other shows as well.

Those that daytime fans noticed were not included were: Michael Nader (Ex-Dex Dexter and Dimitri Marick, Dynasty and All My Children) Stuart Damon (Ex-Alan Quartermaine, General Hospital), Ray MacDonnell (Ex-Joe Martin, All My Children) and Jay Pickett (Ex-Frank Scanlon, Port Charles).

From primetime MIA action were: Michael Constantine (Ex-Room 222), Tanya Roberts (Ex-Charlie’s Angeles), Director, Richard Donner, writer Larry McMurty, and DMX, to name but a few.

However, the Television Academy did list all of its members who died on their website in the In-Memoriam section, because due to time constraints, they could not possibly showcase everyone.

What do you feel about the omissions of Nader, Damon, MacDonnell, Pickett, and more from the In-Memoriam tribute? Let us know in the comment section, but first watch the segment.
