The Television Academy has scrapped its much-maligned plan to time-shift several awards at next month's Emmy Awards.

"This decision was made to mend relationships within the television community and to allow executive producer Don Mischer to focus his full attention on producing the creative elements in the telecast," Academy Chairman-CEO John Shaffner said in a statement. "Our goal is to celebrate the year in television, honor excellence and this year's great achievements with the support of our industry colleagues and our telecast partner, CBS."

Mischer had said that plan was "to reshape the Emmys a little bit."
