As a daytime fan, I was utterly disappointed in the Daytime Emmys which aired on CBS Sunday night.
The ceremony was ashamed to be about daytime dramas. There were taped bits by David Letterman and Don Rickles who have nothing to do with soaps, then they trotted out bitter Dick Clark for an irrelevent “American Bandstand” tribute.
Half of the winners didn’t show (Ellen DeGeneres and Dr. Oz), and most of the winners were from CBS soaps that are getting canceled.
Hey producers: for next year, just own it, and stop trying to win over new viewers and keep your current fans happy. There are millions of us out here who love soaps, and don’t want to see our night taking a back seat to Vegas retreads Marie Osmond, Chubby Checker or Tony Orlando.
