NBC Confirms the Emmys Will Be Live On The West Coast

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 5th 2010 2:02PM
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.

David Canary Is Leaving 'All My Children'

david_canary_all_my_children_abcOne of the biggest stars of daytime, David Canary, has chosen not to renew his contract with 'All My Children,' in large part because of the soap's relocation to Los Angeles according to Soap Opera Network. ABC hasn't confirmed the information, but the creator of 'All My Children,' Agnes Nixon, did. And prior to her confirmation, David Canary's daughter Tweeted about it to David's fans.

David Canary has been on 'All My Children' as Adam and Stuart Chandler since 1983, winning five Daytime Emmys (out of eleven nominations), and he's a fantastic actor. The roles of Adam and Stuart have been integral to the show, even after it was revealed that Adam was responsible for shooting – and killing – Stuart last year.

NBC Wants to Dump Emmy West Coast Tape Delay

by Joel Keller, posted Feb 5th 2010 1:02PM
NBC logoWhen I was working the TCA beat on the west coast last month, I had a bit of cognitive dissonance when NBC aired the Golden Globes live at 5 PM. I watched it with a bunch of critics in a conference room we reserved for the purpose, then watched the rest in my room. After Ricky Gervais bid everyone goodnight, I started stretching and thinking it was time for bed, like I do at the end of every grueling award-show watching experience I ever had.

Then I turned and saw the clock: It was 8 PM. I could have gone for dinner and come back and still had time to work before calling it a night. It was disconcerting and refreshing all at once.

NBC is hoping people have that same experience with the Emmys on August 29, as they're toying with the idea of dumping the west coast tape delay and broadcasting the ceremony live across the country, according to Broadcasting & Cable.

Viewers choose Olympian for next The Apprentice

by Anna Johns, posted May 31st 2006 9:33AM
angela ruggieroAs we mentioned last winter, NBC will feature an Olympian on the next installment of The Apprentice. The viewers voted and they chose... Angela Ruggiero. In case that name doesn't ring a bell, Ruggiero was on the American women's hockey team. She's a Harvard grad so the girl ain't no dummy. In case that gimmick isn't enough, Trump's also taking his show on the road to Los Angeles.

Of Ruggiero, Trump says, "We'll see if Angela can ice the competition as we take the board room to the West Coast." Barf.

West Coast response to SNL's Narnia rap

by Anna Johns, posted Feb 1st 2006 8:27PM
narnia rap battleHere's my message to the internet: stop trying to rip off the Narnia rap from SNL!

It was hilarious. You are not.

Case in point: Mark Feuerstein (from Good Morning, Miami) and Adam Stein launched an East Coast/West Coast rap battle with SNL'ers Andy Samburg and Chris Parnell, the geniuses behind the Lazy Sunday, aka Chronic-what?-cles of Narnia rap video.

Boys, you really shouldn't enter into a battle you cannot win. The two 'Steins created a West Coast version of the rap, called Lazy Monday (because no one in L.A. has a job). They take their bad asses to drink Macchiatos and paint pottery at a Color Me Mine store. It's not nearly as funny, or as catchy of a tune as the Narnia rap.

Nothing beats the original.
