The Daytime Emmy Awards are given to series and performers in recognition of their work in daytime programming. The awards show was first presented in 1974, when the separate awards show for daytime series was established after a few awards had been presented in the general ceremonies in years previous. The broadcast had been in the daytime until 1991, when it moved to primetime. The honor of hosting the broadcast of the awards rotates among NBC, CBS, and ABC.
