The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) has signed a new two-year deal with CBS that’ll keep the Daytime Emmy Awards on the network through at least 2024. The network will broadcast “The 50th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards” live on Friday, June 16, from 9:00-11:00 p.m. ET/delayed PT. The telecast will also be available to stream live and On Demand on Paramount+*.
In a statement, Adam Sharp, President and CEO of NATAS, said, “We are thrilled to be back with our incredible broadcast partner CBS for two years.” He added, “In commemorating the show’s golden anniversary this year, we look forward to honoring and celebrating the beloved world of daytime television.”
“CBS has a storied history in daytime and we are delighted to continue having ‘The Daytime Emmys’ on the Network for the next two years,” said Mackenzie Mitchell, vice president, specials, music and live events, CBS. “We look forward to celebrating the show’s 50th anniversary and highlighting the best that daytime has to offer.”
“The 50th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards” will be produced by NATAS and Associated Television International (ATI), which previously produced Daytime Emmy Award ceremonies on The CW in 2009 and on CBS in 2010, 2011, 2020, 2021 and 2022. Adam Sharp and Lisa Armstrong are executive producers from NATAS, while David McKenzie is executive producer from ATI.
The ceremony is set to take place at the Westin Bonaventure Los Angeles. Nominations and additional information will be available in the coming weeks.
This year’s ceremony marks the 17th time CBS will broadcast the Daytime Emmy Awards, more than any other network. “The 51st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards” will air on CBS in 2024.
Since 1974, the Daytime Emmy Awards have recognized outstanding achievement in television programming and crafts, honoring work in various categories, including daytime dramas, talk shows, instructional programming, hosting, and legal/courtroom programs.
In 2021, NATAS and the Television Academy jointly announced plans to realign the Daytime and Primetime Emmy Awards to be organized by content genre instead of program airtime. In addition, in recognition of the marked increase in content and entries for children’s programming, 2022 marked the first annual Children’s & Family Emmy® Awards, with relevant categories separating from the Daytime Emmys into their own competition and ceremony. All awards are judged by a pool of peer professionals from across the television industry.
Since 2020, the Daytime Emmy Awards have been broadcast on CBS. Before that, the last time the ceremony aired on broadcast television was in 2011 when CBS carried the program. In 2012 and 2013, the awards ceremony was aired by the cable news network HLN.
In 2014, for the first time, the awards ceremony was not available on television; the awards ceremony was available to stream online only. One year later, in 2015, the awards show returned to television via a deal with the cable network Pop. Although the network initially agreed to air the show as part of a two-year deal, which would have included the 2016 ceremony, the Daytime Emmy Awards was once again available for streaming only from 2016-2019.
