NBC sets Aug. 29 as date for 62nd Primetime Emmys

Posted on

NBC announced today that it will air the the 62nd Primetime Emmys on Sunday, Aug. 29, 2010.  The annual television awards show is typically held in mid- to late September, but by slating it in late August—before the new TV season begins—the network will avoid a scheduling conflict with Sunday Night Football. In 2006, NBC aired the Emmys on Aug. 27 for the same reason, and the network noted that that it was the highest-rated entertainment program for that summer, and stands as the highest-rated Emmy telecast of the last four years.
