The show will air live on the east coast (delayed PT) from 9 to 11 p.m. This is the first time the ceremony that primarily honors the daytime sudsers will take place in Sin City.
“The Daytime Emmy Awards are one of the cornerstones of our business and we are thrilled to be back on CBS,” said Herb Granath, Chairman, National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, in a statement. “Last year’s show was one of the most entertaining events in our history, and this year’s Las Vegas-based broadcast promises to be even more exciting.”
