The Daytime Emmys may be homeless for the moment but, just like a scrappy soap opera heroine, they are not defeated.

The Daytime Emmy Awards are on the hunt for a new network. The ceremony has aired on HLN for the past two years but the network was unable to give a commitment for year three.

As reported in Soaps In Depth, Albie Hecht, HLN's vice president and general manager, said, "Shows like [the Daytime Emmys] need commitments in advance to plan and I don't think we can make that commitment."

HLN picked up the Daytime Emmys in 2012 after the rising costs of the ceremony led to an advertisement-filled broadcast on network TV that resulted in backlash from fans and industry insiders alike. The 2012 ceremony was the number one most-watched, regularly scheduled non-news broadcast in the network's history, and the network aired the awards again in 2013.

Though HLN won't be airing the ceremony for a third year, fans shouldn't give up hope of seeing their favorite soaps and stars vie for awards on television. David Michaels, senior executive director of the Daytime Emmy Awards, said the awards show is "currently exploring other avenues so that the Daytime Emmys will have a broadcast home."

Many fans will be eager to tune in to this year's ceremony, which is shaping up to be a tough race. It will include not just the four remaining network shows but also Prospect Park's All My Children and One Life to Live.

Stay tuned to soapcentral.com for updates about when and where you'll be able to tune in to see the excitement.
