Emmy Revamp?

Looks like the networks are weighing in with suggestions to fix the Emmy Awards.

With falling ratings, the broadcast networks want to ditch the movie and miniseries awards from the Primetime telecast to keep the show from dragging. Also, maybe the fact that they don't do as much longform as they used to- or as much as HBO and its ilk- has something to do with it.

The broadcast networks have long whined that they shouldn't be competing on the same playing field as pay cable, reasoning that programs that say "shit" or "fuck" just have to be better. We don't disagree.
