Clouds Part for TV Writers as Emmys Abandon Time-Shifting Plans

Upon learning their categories would be relegated to the hour before the live Emmy broadcast, then rattled off in a video package as a time-saving measure, outraged TV writers mobilized. They quickly drafted and signed a document called the Declaration of TV Writer Importance, which expressed their strong feelings that they be allowed to enjoy their moment live, with everyone else (and designated an area encompassing the Farmers Market and the WGA building as their sovereign homeland). Today, CBS and TV Academy have conceded, as the Emmys have officially abandoned the time-shifting measures. Score one for the writers -- God's forgotten children no longer! [THR]
