Don't expect to find the Daytime Emmy Awards on HLN this year. According to ABC Soaps in Depth, the cable news network made the decision early enough to allow the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) to find another home. HLN's Vice-President and General Manager Albie Hecht told the magazine,
"I just want to put a pause on everything and figure out what we're doing before we make any commitments. Shows like [the Daytime Emmys] need commitments in advance to plan and I don't think we can make that commitment."
CBS President and Chief Executive Officer Les Moonves was not a fan of the 40th Annual Daytime Emmy awards telecast. TMZ caught up with the Tiffany network’s top dog who didn’t mince words on how he felt about HLN’s second year in a row airing the award ceremony. Mooves stated:
You know what ... it wasn't a very well produced show and you can put that on the air.
