64th Emmy Awards Liveblog

I'll be hosting a liveblog of the 64th Emmy Awards with Allen of It's Primetime Somewhere. Like our liveblog of the 54th Grammys, we'll provide the witty commentary, eerily accurate predictions and stinging sartorial criticism. In return, you keep this from being a sad, self-indulgent discussion between two tv-obsessed pop culture junkies. Check back at 7:30pm EDT (4:30 PDT) on Sept. 23 when our coverage starts!
