According to Variety, “Underwood will emcee the show from Los Angeles, where a stage has been set up for the show, but the pre-taped broadcast will also include presenters and honorees from their own show studios and homes to accept their awards. Although many of the key daytime drama, game and talk show awards will be presented on the telecast, additional winners will be announced simultaneously on Twitter, via the @DaytimeEmmys handle.”

The Daytime Emmys are presented to programs broadcast between 2 a.m. and 6 p.m.  The show includes content that originally premiered in calendar-year 2020, and is judged by a pool of peer professionals from across the television industry.

So, what do you think of Underwood being named the solo host of this year’s Emmy broadcast? Comment below.

I was looking forward to finally seeing the Daytime Emmys after them not being shown on network tv for the past few years. Now that I see who the host is, not so much.

They were on CBS last year, but I agree about the host.

I was going to watch the Daytime Emmys but now that I see who is hosting I will not waste MY time.

OMG, she can entertain herself, at least she won’t be able to hang all over every male that comes within her reach, as they won’t be there.

I just wish that they’d have an actor/actress from each of the daytime drama’s host the Emmys but that will never happen again.

Yes that would be great and I don’t know why they don’t do it. The hosts of the Talk have never impressed me.

Awful. I don’t know why CBS is touting her so much. I will record and fast forward through her. She’s not as fabulous as she thinks she is.

Because if they don’t they will be accused of racism. Why dont they let some of the fabulous African American actors from Y&R and B&B host. They would be fantastic.

SOB, I have to keep my TV on mute! I wouldnt watch it at all BUT I do want to see the tribute of Alex Trebek and Larry King. I hope Underwood has nothing to do with this part!

I’m not happy about this choice either. She claims to be a superfan of soaps but true fans don’t drool over and clearly embarrass soap actors when they visit the show. It’s just not how grownups behave. There were better candidates.

Hi, hope you are well. This thing with Sheryl is she is such a smart and educated woman, then why hasn’t she learned how to curb her enthusiasm?

I know. I’m embarrassed for her when she does that. I can tell some of the male actors that come on the show are a bit put off by that. Is she that desperate for a greeting?

Bless her heart. She does show enthusiasm for the soaps, but sometimes she has been way too chatty and that has distracted from the clips and speeches from our soap stars. I hope she does better this time around.

She ain’t “all she’s cracked up to be”. Don’t amount to much. OOGLING over the past Males to sit at The Talk table was sickening. And the camera man gets so close you can see nosehairs….. We just aren’t impressed with that nor her gums.
GoT It???
NOT entertainer nor impressive enough to “run tbe show”.
Sheryl should host a childrens show…WITHOUT the presence of children! js

IF she’s hosting I’m NOT watching.
Won’t watch her on TT either.
You should realize this “cancel” works both ways. We can watch other National TV stations who are just true entertainment.

OMG!
If this is the best they can do for a host,I rather it not even be televised!
I can not think of a more obnoxious host for this show!
She does nothing but drool over all the men on the show and make sexual innuendos!
Why is that OK???
If it was a man doing it, they’d never host another show, but Sheryl gets away with it????
No thank you!

I was looking forward to the emmys but not now. Instead of having her host, why don’t they have some soap favs like they used to i.e. Peter Bergman, Melody Thomas Scott, Eric Braden, etc…. They would do a much better job. Come on CBS you can do better.
