Depends on how serious you want to be in PR. They don't expect or require you to do this, but the work sometimes doesn't end at 6pm...things are constantly shifting and shows are playing all throughout the week, and its good to be on top of what's going on in the shows and the business in general, because you will be covering these during daily mentions every day when you send clips to the department. Also email communication was almost 24/7. Sometimes you're in charge of time sensitive material that needs to be relayed to someone ASAP, so waiting till 9am to check your emails, might be too late.
