Ben Bailey at 2010 Daytime EmmysLast night Discovery Channel had Las Vegas seeing NYC taxi’s trademark yellow and black, as Cash Cab and host Ben Bailey nabbed two Emmys at the 37th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards. Bailey even took to the red carpet, quizzing soap stars (sans cab, of course) before the live telecast.

Early in the evening, Cash Cab was named Outstanding Game/Audience Participation Show, besting Wheel of Fortune, Jeopardy!, The Price is Right and Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?, and taking home the honor for the first time. Ben Bailey followed that up with his third consecutive win in the Outstanding Game Show Host category (past winners include Pat Sajak and Alex Trebek),  as Discovery Channel brought home Emmys for both of its nominations.

Congrats to the Discovery Channel team, Ben Bailey and all the winners last night!
