MORNING REPORT

Exit Lines

June 29, 1989|ALEENE MacMINN | Arts and entertainment reports from The Times, national and international news services and the nation's press

Producer-director Bill Carruthers, who will be putting today's Daytime Emmy Awards telecast on the air (2 p.m. on NBC), believes that award shows that go way overtime (as most of them do) are needlessly self-indulgent. The reason they don't get off on time is simply that they don't have to, says Carruthers. "It's not magic. You lay out the script so you have a lot of places where you can cut. If you can get a football game off the air pretty close to on time every Sunday, you ought to be able to do it with an award."
