    Good Morning America won over CBS This Morning and CBS Sunday Morning?! I think the CBS programs canceled each other out which allowed the GMA win.

    I’ll be glad when CTM gets the recognition it deserves. Hands down better than what ABC and NBC offer IMO.

    “The Bold and the Beautiful‘s” Scott Clifton made Daytime Emmy history. Not taking anything away from Mr. Clifton, but there are only 4 soaps on the air which tremendously increases the odds of winning for both the soaps and actors. And if television just expanded the Primetime Emmys to include all dayparts, there’d be no way that the soaps would ever be nominated as the best in U.S. television. At least to me, due to its extremely limited universe, the Daytime Emmys are a joke in our current Golden/Platinum age of Primetime (hell, I don’t think Netflix and Amazon programs can be called Primetime) television.
