Magic on TV

Daytime Emmy Awards
Sunday, June 27, 9 ET/PT, CBS
The Daytime Emmy Awards will once again honor the soap-opera stars and talk-show hosts who round out the daylight listings in your TV Guide. This year, however, the awards will be presented from the stage of the Las Vegas Hilton, where performers from up and down the Strip have been called in to add sizzle to the two-hour broadcast. Among them, David Copperfield will travel from the MGM Grand's Hollywood Theatre to magically produce host Regis Philbin at the top of the show. Immediately following his spot, David, a twenty-time Emmy award-winner himself, will head back down Las Vegas Boulevard to complete two performances of his show, An Intimate Evening of Grand Illusion. Copperfield's role in theDaytime Emmy's is similar to his appearance on theAcademy of Country Music Awards in 2009, where he used his signature Elevator Illusion to produce music sensation Taylor Swift. We understand that David will not be reprising the Elevator, so expect to see another Copperfield illusion in primetime Sunday night.
