The Daytime Emmys Soldier On After a Brutal Year; Awards Show on CBS Tonight

The Daytime Emmys Soldier On After a Brutal Year; Awards Show on CBS Tonight It's been a really, really, really tough year for daytime TV. ABC cancelled "One Life to Live" and "All My Children," Oprah shuttered her doors, and the morning talk shows were seemingly one giant revolving game of musical chairs.

The awards game must go on, though, and they will at The Daytime Emmy Awards on CBS tonight. Wayne Brady will host and Pat Sajak and "Jeopardy" MC Alex Trebek will both be given Lifetime Achievement Awards.

"General Hospital" leads the pack with 21 award nominations, followed by "The Young and the Restless" with 20, "Sesame Street" and "All My Children" both have 13 and "One Life to Live" has 12 nominations.

With Katy Couric moving to daytime TV in the near future, there's some speculation that "General Hospital" may be the next soap to hit the skids. Will a big sweep at the Daytime Emmys change their fortune? Who do you think should win?
