Toronto -- Canadian broadcaster Craig Media has announced a 2003-04 TV schedule dominated by U.S. celebrity talk shows by day and homegrown fare and Hollywood movies in primetime.

The Calgary, Alberta-based broadcaster also picked up King World's daytime series Living It Up! With Ali & Jack and the Warner Bros. reality-based legal series Celebrity Justice and The People's Court. »

Daytime Emmys finally tap 'View'

19 May 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

NEW YORK -- It didn't exactly equal Susan Lucci's record for futility, but ABC's The View had failed to win a Daytime Emmy Award for five straight seasons. That changed Friday at Radio City Music Hall. View and the syndicated The Wayne Brady Show shared the best talk show prize at the 30th annual Daytime Emmys, which for the first time expanded to a three-hour telecast on ABC. Other winners included CBS' As the World Turns for best daytime drama, Susan Flannery of CBS' The Bold and the Beautiful for best drama actress -- her fourth Emmy -- and Maurice Benard of ABC's General Hospital for best drama actor, his first award. Brady hosted the ceremony, presented by the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. »
