Daytime Emmys hope to secure a TV deal by November: “This year’s TV deal for the Daytime Emmys didn’t get signed until May 24, about a month before the ceremony. In no mood to repeat that experience, National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences chairman Malachy Wienges told Variety today that he plans to have a deal for the 2013 Daytime Emmys closed by November. ‘There’s no way that I could do what I did again last (time),’ he said. Wienges said that he began work on the new set of TV negotiations last month and that he has had interest so far from one broadcast network, two cable networks and two production companies. A possibility is going back to Turner-owned HLN for the second year in a row, though Wienges said TNT and TBS are also part of the Turner discussion
Glad that they are at least on top of it instead of waiting until the last minute.
I was definitely more impressed with this year’s emmy’s than the previous few years, i still however wish they’d get clips back for the actual nominees. The one and only thing i would definitely change for next year is, the music, i didn’t mind the music they played during the nominees, it was kinda of catchy, despite what pretty well everyone on here complained about it, but what i didn’t like, was that they also used that same music when the winners were announced, it was about damn time we heard the day of our lives theme music at the emmy’s again, and they ruined it for us!!! lol so hopefully in 2013 they will bring back each soap’s theme for the wins.
