LOS ANGELES, July 6 (UPI) -- CBS and the Academy of TV Arts & Sciences contacted Grammys producer Ken Ehrlich to polish the Emmys award show, which has been hampered by falling ratings.

Ehrlich was named executive producer of the 57th annual Primetime Emmy Awards telecast, which will air Sept. 18, Variety reported Wednesday.

The 2004 broadcast drew 14 million viewers, the event's second-smallest audience. For the last 10 years, Don Mischer, produced the show except in 2001, when the events of Sept. 11 delayed the broadcast.

Besides producing 25 Grammy Awards telecasts, Ehrlich's credits include creating and producing the "MTV Movie Awards," "VH1 Honors" and VH1's "Diva" specials. Credits also include "Genius: A Night for Ray Charles" and music specials for Celine Dion, Elton John, Ricky Martin, Aretha Franklin and Eric Clapton.
