MTV has moved up the start time of the Video Music Awards so fans of the show can still catch President Obama accept his parties nomination.
The show will run from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. Eastern time. The president is scheduled to speak from the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C., after 10 p.m.
The video awards are a considerable draw for young viewers and usually run around Labor Day. MTV often uses the awards show to introduce new programming in the hour afterward but will not do so this year.
