Emmys: HBO Dethroned for the First Time in 18 Years by Netflix

  Emmys: HBO Dethroned for the First Time in 18 Years by Netflix For the first time, Netflix has come out on top as the platform with the most Emmy nominations. The streaming giant has received 112 nominations for the 70th annual primetime Emmy Awards. That’s up more than 20 from 2017, when it scored 91 nominations. Netflix ends a 17-year winning streak by HBO, which previously topped the nominations. Netflix was aided by powerhouse projects such as “The Crown,” which received 13 nominations, including a key drama series nod; “Stranger Things,” which received 12 noms, including drama series; “Godless,” which received 12 noms, including one for limited series; and “GLOW,” which received 10 noms, including comedy series.

Megyn Kelly will return to primetime on NBC for at least one one-hour special in early August, a person familiar with the planning told TheWrap on Thursday. The appearance is expected to be a resuscitation of Kelly's much-discussed evening show, "Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly."

Back in March — in a release mostly promoting her interview with Vladimir Putin — the network promised that Kelly would return to the airwaves "periodically" in the spring and summer of 2018.

"This special marks the return of the weekend primetime newsmagazines Kelly will anchor periodically this spring and summer until football season," it read, while also being careful to say that her appearances would depend on "Kelly's schedule with her weekday morning program."

Hall of Fame QB Jim Kelly Needs Checkup After Latest Cancer Surgery

  Hall of Fame QB Jim Kelly Needs Checkup After Latest Cancer Surgery ​It's been a long battle for Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly, who is battling cancer for the third time. Today, he revealed that he will be traveling to New York City next month for an unexpected "checkup" after "something came up" in his recovery from ​oral cancer surgery that reconstructed his upper jaw.

For Megyn Kelly , the shift from Fox News to NBC — where she will host a daily daytime show and a Sunday newsmagazine program — will be a test of whether she can connect with a broader audience in a different format and reach another level of television stardom.

Megyn Kelly was supposed to bring star power to NBC News and a bigger, broader audience of morning viewers to its “Today” show franchise. Instead, the three-year, million bet to woo Ms. Kelly from her conservative prime - time perch at Fox News is backfiring.

Reps for the network referred TheWrap to that statement hedge to explain the delay.

It hasn't been easy for Kelly ratings-wise since she joined NBC, though she recently hit her stride interviewing prominent women in the #MeToo movement. The anchor, who was one of Fox News' most popular on-air personalities, left the network in 2017 to pick up the third hour of NBC's "Today" show.

While on Fox News, Kelly was often a lightning rod for controversy, but could also draw upon her past as a litigator to deliver hard-hitting moments. During the first Republican presidential debate in 2015, Kelly confronted Donald Trump about his past comments toward women, which ignited a nasty feud between the two that hasn't fully healed.
