Daytime Emmys 2018: Will ‘Good Morning America’ extend its record as the biggest winner of Best Morning Show?

The Daytime Emmy Award for Best Morning Program was first handed out in 2007, and since then ABC’s “Good Morning America” has been the biggest winner, prevailing five times. Will the show extend its record with a sixth win in 2018? The TV academy has gone back and forth from year to year.

When the award was created 11 years ago two shows tied for the win: “Gma” and NBC’s “Today Show.” They defeated the only other nominee that year, “Live with Regis and Kelly,” which later returned to the talk show categories where it had previously competed. “Gma” won again in 2008 and 2009 before “Today” began a streak of its own, prevailing three times from 2010-2012.

It seemed like “Gma” and “Today” would be indomitable in the category, but then in 2013 “CBS Sunday Morning” earned its first nomination and won. The weekly series, at the time hosted by Charles Osgood, focuses on national and international news,

Jane Pauley Readies for ‘Sunday Morning’ Run on CBS

Before Jane Pauley even considers finding her own voice on CBS’ venerable “Sunday Morning,” she wants to make certain the show’s own tones remain intact.

“I have enough experience in television with brand-name programs to know that if there’s anything viewers don’t want too much of, it’s overt change, particularly in the morning,” she said in an interview this week. “They kind of have an expectation that the same is fine.”

And yet, when viewers tune into “CBS Sunday Morning” this weekend, they won’t be served the same thing. For the first time in decades, a new anchor will be at the helm of the Sunday-breakfast institution. Pauley will greet viewers this Sunday, not Charles Osgood as has been the norm, and the shift is a major one: Jane Pauley will be just the third anchor since “Sunday Morning” launched in January of 1979.

Sutton Foster, Stephen Colbert Star in Realistic Cats Musical — Watch Video
This new version of Cats is bound to cause a purr.

Younger‘s Sutton Foster joined Stephen Colbert on Tuesday’s Late Show in a new adaptation of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s iconic Broadway musical — now with songs more in tune with the life of the common house pet. It’s, without a doubt, the most ridiculous thing you’ll watch today, but it’s hard not to appreciate Foster’s commitment to the material, especially as her character becomes distracted by a curtain cord, or when she prances across the stage singing about a certain “gift” left for her owner.
