Game shows will move from the Daytime Emmy Awards to the Prime Time Emmy Awards, academy officials announced Wednesday.

According to the North Hollywood-based Television Academy and New York-based National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, the honors for outstanding game show and outstanding game show host will now be presented during the Prime Time Emmy Awards.

Officials said the awards should be presented by genre, not by the time of day they air.

The switch will take effect beginning next year. Therefore, the eligibility category for the 2023 awards will be from Jan. 1, 2022, through May 31, 2023.

Comedian Kenan Thompson was announced as host of the 74th Emmy Awards.

The event is set for Sept. 12 at the Microsoft Theater in downtown Los Angeles.
