Light Shines On Daytime Emmys
CBS nabbed 57 nominations for Daytime Emmy Awards Wednesday -- the most of any network -- with the daddy of all daytime dramas, CBS's The Guiding Light, which debuted on television in 1952, being showered with 17 of them. Another long-running soap, CBS's As the World Turns (1956), received 16 nods. The Ellen DeGeneres show Ellen was the most-nominated talk show with 12 nominations. Morning shows were removed from consideration for daytime Emmys, although a special morning-program list is expected to be announced in April. Emmy statuettes will be presented at the Daytime Emmys Awards Show, set to air live on June 15.
