GLOBES, EMMYS EYE DESPERATE MOVES

The very prospect of competition from ABC juggernaut Desperate Housewives has 2006 Golden Globes host NBC pondering a major change in the annual awardsfest. The Peacock is thinking about moving the Globes, currently slated for Sunday, Jan. 16, to the next day, Variety reports, although some foresee backlash holding the event on the Martin Luther King holiday. Meanwhile, NBC finds itself locked out of hosting the Emmys on a Sunday in 2006 due to its contract to air NFL games on Sunday night. Thus far, a proposed Monday, Sept. 11, reschedule has raised flags; it's the fifth anniversary of the terror attacks.
