In a surprising scheduling shift, NBC and the Television Academy have announced that the 66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards will air on Monday, Aug. 25, 2014.
Yes, you read that right: the 2014 Emmys will air on a Monday, not a Sunday. It's also much earlier than previous ceremonies, which usually air in September. So why the big move? NBC is avoiding a conflict with Sunday Night Football. Touchdowns and trophies, viewers really can have it all!
