TBS to Simulcast TNT’s SAG Awards


TBS will air a live simulcast presentation of sister network Turner Network Television’s coverage of the 12th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards Sunday, Jan. 29 at 8 p.m. (EST/PST).

TNT has been airing the SAG Awards live since 1998.

“Since the SAG Awards honors both dramatic and comedic performances, TNT, television’s first network for drama, and TBS, television’s ‘very funny’ network, are ideal companions to present this exciting annual event,” TNT and TBS executive vice president and chief operating officer Steve Koonin said in a prepared statement.

“This simulcast allows us to utilize the brands of both networks to market the presentation in ways that speak to both drama fans and comedy lovers,” he added.
