Fox To Air Primetime Emmys on Sept. 20

Fox  is returning the Emmy Awards to Sunday night in September.

Fox will air the 67th Primetime Emmy Awards live Sept. 20, at 8 p.m. (ET)  from the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live.

The scheduling is more traditional one for the statuefest, which aired on Monday, Aug. 25, 2014, in deference to NBC's top-ranked Sunday Night Football package and MTV's Video Music Awards, which aired the night before and garnered 8.3 million viewers.

The Creative Arts Emmy Awards are slated for Sept. 12 and will be televised on FXX at a later date.

The 2014 Primetime Emmy telecast averaged 15.6 million watchers and a 4.2 rating against adults 18 to 49, respective decreases of 12% and 14% from the 2013 edition of the show
