    Updated on November 10:

    Although the venue and network are still up in the air for next year's 2009 Daytime Emmy awards, The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences President Peter Price assures everyone that negotiations are being made between two broadcast networks and two cable channels and that the award show will be held in New York! Whether it be Radio City Music Hall, Madison Square Garden or another venue, will keep you posted as soon as the details are final!

    Previously reported on November 4:

    It seems as though the 2008 Daytime Emmy excitement has finally settled down, but there is already word - and maybe some worry - about what network will air next year's awards.

    Apparently CBS, who was due to air the event as a network rotation slot, has just declined the opportunity, and it's been years since NBC has been the home for Emmy night. So what about the ABC or SOAPnet networks? As of this time, both aren't making any plans to broadcast the show as well!

    The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences is continuing to present the offer to many other networks and cable channels and plans for the Emmys to go off as it does every year. Brent Stanton, NATAS Executive Director, hopes that by December, they'll know exactly where they stand and will be able to pass along word to the Daytime community as well! will keep you posted as more information becomes available.

    Well, it is just a big popularity contest, IMHO, anyway.

    Maybe they should put it on soapnet... but it is for all daytime shows.... so maybe they wouldnt want that... long as its on a channel everyone can get... ABC would be great!

    They'll probably sell the ceremony as an iTunes download, LOL.

    I really, really, hope they show the awards show on one if the the main channels like NBC, CBS, FOX, PBS, and ABC. Because I do not get cable or satellite and will not be getting before next year.

    Hope it's not on SOAPnet - our cable system dropped the channel from our system and I'm very unhappy about that!!
