2014 Emmys to air on a Monday night

Earlier today, NBC announced that the 66th Primetime Emmys are scheduled to air on Monday, August 25th from 8:00-11:00 pm.

While ABC, CBS, and FOX normally air the Emmys in September, NBC tends to air them in August in order to avoid a conflict with Sunday Night Football. However, this year, while the Emmys are still being aired in August, they will be airing on a Monday instead of a Sunday. This is because there is a chance that a Sunday Night Football game may be scheduled for Sunday, August 24th.

The Creative Arts Emmy Awards, then, will be held nine days earlier than the live Primetime Emmys, as it will take place on Saturday, August 16.

The network hasn’t yet named the host of the event, but given the fact that Jimmy Fallon did a great job when he hosted the awards in 2010 and that he is making big news with his move to the Tonight Show (“The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" is set to start on February 17), it wouldn’t come as a surprise to see him host the telecast again this year.
