Not a team I would choose…

For those in attendance, I propose a drinking game: take a swig every time Underwood throws herself at, or otherwise makes a sexually suggestive comment to, a man on stage or in the audience.

Will the Emmys at least be broadcast live online again this year? I’ve seen no word from anyone on this, which I think is very poor. Keep hyping who is hosting, or who is gonna be at the show, without telling us where we might be able to watch the show. It’s bad enough that it’s not shown on television anymore, but if it’s not at least carried live online then I have absolutely zero interest.

What do I think about these hosts? I’m not sure it matters exactly who is hosting the show if it isn’t going to be televised. “Internet streaming” is not what I would call being televised.

Has a network signed on to this? If there has been no announcement by now (with 3 weeks until the broadcast), I’m thinking it is unlikely.

I’m happy for Mario Lopez and Sheryl Underwood for being the ones that were chosen to host the 44th Annual Daytime Emmys Awards. But would like to know if we the fans are going to be able to have the chance to watch it. I mean it would only be fair.

I would shoot out all my TV’s, step on my Ipad and flush my I Phone down the toilet BEFORE I would watch one second of Cheryl Underwood dry humping Steve Burton again! She is a horrible choice. Why not Mario and Maria Menounos?

It’s ridiculous that once again no network is carrying this awards show on TV. Those of us who watch daytime TV regularly are left out once again. Come on. Someone out there needs to step up.
