TV News: Emmys Coming Early, More Hannah on the Way

- The Emmys will air on September 13 (8:00-11:00PM, live ET/delayed PT) this year, one week earlier than the orignally announced date. A spokesman for CBS cited the possibility of broadcast delays on the orignal award show date due to an NFL doubleheader airing on The Eye that Sunday. The original date for the Emmys was set before the NFL released their 2009 television schedule. This year's Primetime Emmy nominees will be announced July 16 at 5:40AM. [Emmys.tv]

-Disney Channel has ordered a fourth season of its franchise-generating hit show Hannah Montana. Tween queen Miley Cyrus will return as the titular character, though "goodbyes will be will be an ongoing theme in an arc that will see Cyrus' character and her family leave their beachfront Malibu enclave." The Mouse also renewed the freshman comedy series Sonny With a Chance, which stars another tween darling, Demi Lovato. [Variety]

- Brian Austin Green (of the recently cancelled Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles) is in talks to join the cast of The CW's One Tree Hill. The hour-long drama faces big changes going into its seventh year after last season's departure of two of the show's original leads, Chad Michael Murray and Hilarie Burton. If Green comes aboard, he would be a series regular -- a "brash sports agent" who is also "enjoying the spoils that come from being a wealthy, handsome single guy." Sounds like Green would be moving back toward his 90210 roots with this character. [Hollywood Reporter]
