First broadcast in 1949, the Primetime Emmy Awards is an annually occurring awards show dedicated to honoring excellence in primetime television programming. The awards were established by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, who initially devoted the awards to local Los Angeles programming until the 1950s when they widened the scope of eligable programs.

As of the 58th Primetime Awards, only television programs broadcast between June 1st and May 31st during the hours of 6:00 PM to 2:00 AM and are either broadcast to 51% of the total potential households in the United States or are available via basic or premium cable packages. Other ineligible programming is honored in a similar fashion in the Daytime Emmy Awards.
