The Emmy Awards May Air on HBO

Big 4 countering HBO's Emmy offer

The showdown over the Primetime Emmy Awards is set for a climax today. The Big Four networks are scrambling to find a way to keep the Emmys from bolting to HBO in an unprecedented five-year, $50-million-plus deal

Just think. The Emmys on HBO. When Six Feet Under (or ant show for that matter) wins next time, the winners, rather then having to say, "I am so honored and pleased to accept this award tonight....blah, blah, blah", they can just come up and say how they really feel: "This is fuckin great!"

UPDATE: Big Four networks keep Emmy rights in $52 million deal

Oh well, HBO tried.
