The date for the television industry’s big awards show has changed. Again. More on the latest on Emmy scheduling from KPCC’s Alex Cohen.

The Emmy’s will now be on September 20th. And that was the date they were originally scheduled to air – but then there came concerns that the show would air on the same day as an NFL TV double header.

So the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences and CBS announced the Emmys would air a week earlier instead. But, September 13th is the same day that MTV had already claimed for its Video Music Awards Ceremony.

Now it’s back to plan A, a September 20th air date, for the awards show. The Emmys are slated to begin at 5 p.m., but that could be pushed back to accommodate the NFL broadcast.
