40th Daytime Emmy Awards Show logo
We know who's been nominated. Now it's time to get some scoop on the 40th Annual Daytime Emmy show itself. TV Guide Magazine spoke with executive producer Gabriel Gornell and HLN executive vp and general manager Scot Safon about the ceremony, airing live on HLN from the Beverly Hilton Hotel (Sunday, June 16, 8/7c). Expect big changes.
"Last year we only had three weeks to prepare for the show but this time we have two months and that's going to make a vast difference in the way we honor daytime television," Safon says. "We were so heartened by what we achieved in such a small amount of time last year that we just knew we had to dream bigger. Our working theme for this year's ceremony is 'Past, Present and Future,' which will honor 40 years of the Daytime Emmys and 40 years of daytime television breakthroughs — the many ways daytime was there first, especially when it came to subject matter on the daytime dramas, talk shows and children's programming. It's an extraordinary legacy."

TVGN will air The Young and the Restless beginning this summer as part of the new CBS Corporation/Lionsgate partnership, TVGN announced on Wednesday.
Currently the No. 1 daytime drama on network television, The Young and the Restless will move its repeat airings from SoapNet to TVGN, but will continue to air at the same hour, 7/6c. New episodes air weekdays at 12:30-1:30 p.m./ET; 11:00 a.m. to Noon/PT on the CBS Television Network.
This is the night NBC has been waiting for all year. A rough 2013 it has been, for sure, with prime time in freefall and even institutions like the Today and Tonight shows embattled by negative PR. You might begin to think Do No Harm isn't just a bad memory, but a motto the Peacock network somehow just can't seem to live up to.
If the tide is ever to start turning, it will be on Mondays, with the return of the game-changing The Voice (8/7c) and its irresistible, instantly iconic "Blind Audition" episodes. New to the hot seats: Shakira and Usher, filling in this cycle for Cee Lo Green and Christina Aguilera, with NBC hoping it doesn't matter who's sitting in those revolving chairs. The show's the thing, and this has always been the best part of The Voice.

Do weddings come cheaper by the dozen? Let's hope so for Nikki Newman's sake. The tragedy-prone heroine of The Young and the Restless — played by Melody Thomas Scott — has married for the 12th time, as part of the CBS soap's 40th anniversary celebration. TV Guide Magazine rang Thomas Scott to find out how it feels to be Nikki Reed Foster Bancroft DiSalvo Newman Abbott Landers Newman Newman Chow Sharpe Abbott Newman. Monogram that!
No worries, soap fans! Jeanne Cooper is doing just fine. The Emmy-winning grande dame has been absent from The Young and the Restless for several weeks causing much concern among her devotees, especially when her character, Katherine Chancellor, failed to show up Monday for the start of the Victor-Nikki wedding. Turns out Cooper, like many other Y&R stars, was hit with a bad bout of the flu but she's now back and sassier than ever! TV Guide Magazine had a chat with the outspoken, 84-year-old survivor about Y&R's upcoming 40th anniversary (March 26), the infestation of newbies in Genoa City and, of course, those scary symptoms Katherine's been having. Duck for cover!
Nothing but the best for Nikki Newman! The much-married heroine of The Young and the Restless is hiring The Bold and the Beautiful's Eric Forrester — played by John McCook — to design a bridal gown for her fourth wedding to the dastardly Victor Newman. And that'll have McCook crossing over to Y&R to make a guest appearance at the ceremony (March 18-19 on CBS). TV Guide Magazine spoke with the veteran actor about his trip to Genoa City and, of course, what it's like to suddenly be the biggest slut on B&B!
