You better be asking “What time do the Emmys 2017 start?” so that you don’t miss a second of the glitz, the glam and, well, the unavoidable political commentary.
The 69th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards are finally here, so we hope you have a party to go to and some champagne to pop open while you wait for each award to be announced. You’ll be in good company if you’re cracking open that champs a little early to watch the red carpet and host commentary in front of your own TV about who shows up with whom and which celebrities make your list of the best dressed.
Want some professional opinions to go with your own rankings? Tune into red carpet commentary from E!, called “Live from the Red Carpet” for those of you new to the dress decoding game, prior to the actual awards ceremony at 6 p.m. EST on the network.
Who’s hosting the Emmys this year?
Known best for The Colbert Report, but turning heads as late night talk show host on The Late Show, Stephen Colbert will be hosting the 2017 Emmys so hilarious quips and political commentary are all but guaranteed.

Who’s presenting at the Emmy Awards?
While we’re not going to list them all — some things have to be a surprise, right? — standout big names include Alec Baldwin, Rashida Jones, Jim Parsons, Oprah Winfrey, Nicole Kidman, Debra Messing, Jessica Biel, Anna Faris, Reese Witherspoon, Lea Michele and Edie Falco.
So, what time do the Emmys 2017 start?
The actual Emmy Awards will start right at 8 p.m. EST on Sunday, September 17, and will air from Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California on CBS.
Make sure you give yourself a couple minutes before the show is scheduled to start to look up TV Guide’s listings if you’re unsure what channel it’s on in your area. Select your provider under “Preferences” to get the channel number for CBS — or E! if you’re looking for red carpet coverage — in your region.
If you’re willing to shell out $6 a month or already have CBS All Access, you can also live stream the show on a smart TV or their website using the network’s streaming service. (Hint: You can sign up for a seven-day free trial right before the awards show starts. But don’t tell them you hear it from us.)
