In 2021, the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) and the Television Academy jointly announced plans to realign the Daytime and Primetime Emmy Awards to be organized by content genre, as opposed to program airtime. In addition, in recognition of the marked increase in content and entries for children’s programming, 2022 will mark the first annual Children’s & Family Emmy Awards, with relevant categories separating from the Daytime Emmys into their own competition and ceremony.
The 49th Annual Daytime Emmys are set to air on Friday, June 24 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on CBS. This will mark the 16th time that CBS has broadcast the awards, more than any other network. The Creative Arts and Lifestyle Emmy ceremony will stream live on Saturday, June 18 at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT at watch.TheEmmys.tv and via The Emmys apps for iOS, tvOS, Android, FireTV, and Roku (full list at apps.theemmys.tv).
