Daytime Emmys Staying on CBS – 2023 Awards Set for June 16

The Daytime Emmy Awards are going to stay on CBS.

The awards show, presented by The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, has inked a new two-year deal that will see the program air live on CBS and for premium subscribers on Paramount+. The deal also includes broadcast rights to the 2024 Daytime Emmys.

This year’s ceremony will be broadcast live Friday, June 16, from the Westin Bonaventure Los Angeles.

The Daytime Emmys ceremony has aired on CBS for the past three years, and previously bounced around between networks, with NBC, ABC, CBS, The CW, Pop and HLN having aired the awards at various points over the last 20 years. The show was without a broadcast partner from 2016 to 2019. The 2022 installment averaged 2.8 million viewers on CBS.
