Emmy Awards 2022: Time, TV Channel, How to Watch Free Online

Will “Succession” triumph over fierce competition like “Euphoria”, “Squid Game” and “Stranger Things”? Can “Ted Lasso” still win for his second season? Will Donald Glover win a trophy even if ‘Atlanta’ didn’t win the Best Comedy Series nomination? We will have to watch the 2022 Emmy Awards discover.

(The 2022 Emmy Awards begin at 5 p.m. PT / 8 p.m. ET on NBC. You can stream the show live on DirecTV Stream, which offers a free trial; fubo TV, which offers a free trial; on TV Sling; on Peacock; and on Hulu + Live TV.)

The 74th Primetime Emmy Awards airs Monday (Sept. 12) on NBC. For one thing, it’s odd to see a big awards show airing not on Sunday, which is considered the most-watched night of the week, but on Monday. However, since it’s NBC’s turn to air the Emmys this year and NBC airs football on Sundays, the Emmys had to take a step back and move to Monday.

Ever since the big show aired on NBC, the host has been an NBC star, Kenan Thompson, from “Saturday Night Live”. Thompson holds the distinction of being the longest-serving cast member on the weekend late-night show, so it seems likely that we’ll see other “SNL” favorites appear on this year’s Emmy show.

Thompson has said in interviews that he aimed for a warm atmosphere and didn’t want to make fun of anyone. Hey, after Chris Rock’s Will Smith slap turned the Oscars into a bizarre spectacle, it’s no surprise Thompson is going for good vibes, not edgy jokes.

The 2022 Emmy nominations reflect the abundance of quality programming available today, though as usual, streaming and cable series nabbed most of the nominations. But don’t count out “Abbott Elementary,” the hit comedy created by and starring Quinta Brunson, which airs on ABC and garnered numerous nominations, including Best Comedy Series, Lead Actress in a Comedy ( Brunson), Supporting Actor in a Comedy (Tyler James Williams), and Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series (a duo, with nominations for Sheryl Lee Ralph and Janelle James).

In addition to the celebrity hosts, John Legend, the “EGOT” winner himself, will perform his song “Pieces” during the “In Memoriam” segment of the Emmy Awards. Comedian Sam Jay (“Pause With Sam Jay”) will be the announcer, and Grammy winner Zedd will be the evening’s DJ.

The 74th Primetime Emmy Awards airs at 5 p.m. PT Monday and 8 p.m. ET Monday on NBC.
