Hosted by Regis Philbin, who incidentally filled in for Clark as the clock struck 2005 in New York, the 37th annual Daytime Emmys will take place Sunday, June 27, in Las Vegas, with The Blue Man Group, Cirque du Soleil, Wayne Newton and other notable Vegas acts scheduled to appear. It'll air on CBS.

"Since this is the first time the Daytime Emmys will be based outside New York or L.A., we're putting together a special that will tap into the energy and excitement of Las Vegas," said David McKenzie, the telecast's executive producer.
