    Delighted so far. I hope they continue to add more daytime soap opera stars; they are who we tune in to see, not someone from some obscure night time cable program.

    Presenters are not a big deal to me. I am just happy for the person asked to present. What would be interesting is to have actors from each soap who are seated at the same table to share on camera one topic they are chatting about between presentations/commercials and have the fans watching respond to the conversation via twitter. Make it more intimate between the Daytime stars and fans…in real time. By the way, the actors pick the topic.

    If some of the responses from the fans are funny, the actors and the fans can share a laugh together in real time!

    I agree! You have an excellent idea on how to make the Daytime Emmy Awards show much more intimate between the Daytime stars and their fans… in real time! I have always wondered what the soap stars talked about between the presentations and the commercials. So this would be a great way for the fans watching to find out and give their responses on the selected topic!
