Later this year, the 73rd Emmy® Awards will be broadcast live on Sunday, Sept. 19 at 8 PM ET / 5 PM PT on CBS, and streaming live and on-demand on Paramount+.

The Daytime Emmy® Awards have recognized outstanding achievement in daytime television programming since 1974. The awards are presented to programs broadcast between 2 AM and 6 PM, as well as all forms of children's television programming and certain categories of streaming and syndicated content. This year's Daytime Emmys® are the most competitive ever, with more than 3,100 submissions featuring content that originally premiered in calendar-year 2020, judged by a pool of peer professionals from across the television industry.

This will mark the 15th time CBS has broadcast the Daytime Emmy® Awards, more than any other network. CBS last hosted both specials in 2005, it's been since 2008 since any network has had the honor of hosting both Emmy Awards in one year.

CBS has been the top-rated network in daytime television since 1986. The top-two game shows, The Price is Right and Let's Make A Deal, as well as the top-two daytime dramas, The Young and the Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful, can all be found on CBS—not to mention the Daytime Emmy Award-winning talk show The Talk.

​Additional information about the broadcast will be available in the coming months.
