    The NFL just released its 2015 schedule, and Emmy Night (September 20) is a Fox national doubleheader day, which means there will be NFL coverage nationwide (except for Jacksonville and San Francisco, because of the NFL’s broadcasting rules) until 8:00 Eastern.  Ironically, IIRC, in 2011, there was a red carpet show on Fox, but San Francisco was one of the cities (along with New York) that missed the first half of it because of a long-running NFL game.

    This also adds the possibility, albeit slim (especially as there is only one game scheduled to start at 4:25 on Fox that day), that Fox’s NFL coverage could run past 8:00.  Didn’t this happen with CBS not too long ago?

    Ugh this is disgusting. Football always likes to come in thinking they are the best and can go over time and push anything in its way if they are the ones that go overtime. There are 400 sports channels for a reason.

    Actually, Sunday’s NASCAR race on Fox had such a long rain delay that, rather than pre-empt half of the Sunday night schedule, they moved the race coverage to Fox Sports 1.  However, Football Is King.  They could always have the Red Carpet show on FX or FXX (which is airing the Creative Arts Emmys, albeit taped and edited).

    The only real problem Fox might have with a football game running too long is if it decides to air the Emmys twice in the Pacific time zone – live at 5 Pacific, and again at 8; a late start means that people will be tuning in at 8, see the live announcements of the Comedy Series and Drama Series winners, and either think that they missed the broadcast or they can stop watching as they saw the two important awards.

    This is why the August date should have remained in place. CBS had the same issue two years ago.

    They should’ve just kept it on a Monday night is August. Then, we wouldn’t have issues like this.

    Football is one of the reasons why FOX became the success it is today.

    The red carpet will still happen on E! They shouldn’t do it on Mondays because 1. Ratings took a hit 2. Shows took financial and scheduling hits last year. Lots of people had complained on the carpet that flying them out to LA if they shoot in NYC and the traffic of regular LA workers. But carpet is not the issue, it’s the fact that if and when football goes overtime, they will go over since they think they are the kings of TV. The main solution is to pick one of the hundreds of sports channels and play it there

    That doesn’t make sense for FOX though. Football = huge ratings for them.

     

    Pop will likely have red carpet coverage too.
