TV host Jon Stewart (holding a banana and water) runs to his seat during the 64th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards at Nokia Theatre L.A. Live on September 23, 2012 in Los Angeles, California.
It was the Emmys vs. the NFL in the World Series of televison on Sunday, as bars across the land were forced to face a channel-clicking conflict and the toughest question of all: Are we secretly a television bar with a sports problem?
The award show caused minor ruckus after bellyaching ruckus in establishments otherwise tuned to the drama of the Baltimore Ravens / New England Patriots football game. Twitter, as expected, took the opportunity to flap about priorities.
Never realized how LA LA really was until I walked to bar to catch end of football game and the Emmys were on the TVs instead. #companytown— chrisbarton (@chrisbarton) September 24, 2012
I wish I had a football jersey that said THE NEW GIRL on the back to wear to this sports bar while I read tweets about the Emmys.— Keelayjams (@keelayjams) September 24, 2012
