    Maybe the Emmys are pulling strings to ensure they don’t have any competition for their show.  Sad news, this is.  From the Hollywood Reporter:

    Turns out it’s not so easy to create a
    rival to the TV Academy’s Primetime Emmys.

    Despite the backing of such big-name
    executives as Sony TV’s Steve Mosko and former Fox Networks CEO Tony
    Vinciquerra, THR has learned there will not be a Paley Center for
    Media TV awards show in 2012. Negotiations with several broadcast and
    cable networks did not produce an agreement in time to do a show in
    May, as the group announced it would in September 2010.

    Paley CEO Pat Mitchell tells THR she
    still believes a Paley awards show is a good idea and is continuing
    to pursue an outlet for a future show, and she insists the “Paley
    Prize” was never an effort to take on the Emmys.

    Separately, the Broadcast Television
    Journalists are searching for a TV partner after June’s inaugural
    Critics’ Choice TV Awards failed to lure viewers to ReelzChannel. The
    show’s executive producer Joey Berlin says the organization next year
    might work with VH1, which streamed the show on its website.

    Meanwhile, September’s telecast of the
    Emmys, in the first year of a new eight-year deal with the four major
    networks, drew a decent 12.4 million viewers on Fox.
