NBC Confirms the Emmys Will Be Live On The West Coast

EmmysJoel reported a month ago that NBC had been thinking about dumping the West Coast tape delay for the Emmys and actually airing them live for people on the left side of the country too. Now NBC confirms that they will indeed show the awards show live on the West Coast too.

This will be the first time since 1976 that the Emmys will be seen live on the West Coast. In this day of the web and Twitter and time-shifted TV viewing, it makes sense that the network would make this decision. I'm sure people on the other side of the country can get used to the fact that the Emmys will now start at 5pm instead of 8pm (though I could never get used to living on the West Coast schedule - I'd feel so behind all the time).

The Emmy Awards airs on August 29. We'll have complete coverage here all night, of course.
