The Secrets of the Primetime Emmy Telecast, By the Numbers

It's crunch time for Primetime Emmys executive producer Don Mischer. The live TV veteran and his production partners Charlie Haykel and Juliane Hare face a daunting task on Aug. 25: Hand out 26 awards (more than most televised awards shows), give host Seth Meyers room to shine, keep the show entertaining and make sure it ends in three hours.

"A lot of things aren't decided until the last few weeks."

"It's your bar mitzvah times a million," says director-writer Jason Reitman, a four-time nominee (Up in the Air, Juno) who remembers getting over his loss with a post-show visit to In-N-Out Burger.
