Emmy Awards Moving to a Monday This Year

Marc Bryan-Brown/WireImage(LOS ANGELES) -- The Emmy Awards will air on a new night this year.

The Television Academy and NBC have announced the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards will air Monday, August 25. Why was it scheduled for a Monday rather than a Sunday, as is typical for the ceremony? NBC says it wanted to avoid a potential conflict with its Sunday Night Football coverage.

The most recent Emmy Awards telecast aired on Sunday, September 22, 2013.

This year's Emmys telecast will air live from coast to coast from the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles. The Television Academy and NBC have yet to announce the host and the producers for the show.

The Creative Arts Emmy Awards, at which the Emmys for the technical categories will be presented, will take place on Saturday, August 16.
