You can expect the Emmy telecast, hosted by Andy Samberg and airing Sept. 20 on Fox, to stick with what's worked in the past. As 13-time Emmy show producer Don Mischer told TV critics last month, there's little point in reinventing the wheel. When it comes to creating a memorable awards show, he said, "the two things that make the most difference are 'Who wins?' and 'What do they say?' And as a producer you have absolutely no control over that."
Of course, those moments over which Mischer and 17-time Emmycast director Louis J. Horvitz have absolutely no control are the ones awards show viewers live for. So we'll keep an eye out for spontaneity, but as for the rest of the show, there are 9 things we can expect to see.
