NBC is promising to break some new ground with a more interactive Emmy telecast Sunday night, and I am eager to see how it goes.
There are two aspects the network is trumpeting: Host Jimmy Fallon fielding tweets from viewers during the telecast, and the network streaming a "backstage" webcast using seven cameras to give viewers a look at what is happening behind the scenes with winners, losers, presenters and some of the production aspects of the show.
The Twitter stuff sounds a little gimmicky, but maybe that's me. But the live stream "backstage" webcast, that I like a lot. And I would probably be watching exclusively online if I didn't have to write about the telecast.
QUESTION OF THE DAY: Do you think Fallon will be "dancing" with Kate Gosselin Sunday night? If he does, will it cause you leave the room?
Here's the NBC release on how to tweet.
