Now that we’ve got the introduction and guest stars out of the way, let’s move on to categories people might actually care about. Comedy always takes a back seat to drama at these award shows, playing as the opening act to the more prestigious drama awards. It wasn’t my intention to that here, the reason is more practical: there’s two drama series I’m still hoping to finish before I write/post that category (one I will, one I probably won’t… unless my posting schedule is even slower than I’m anticipating). But I’m all caught up on every comedy I want to watch, so no need to delay.
The big missing show here is Glee, which got a whole whack of Emmy nominations but doesn’t interest me at all (the things it does well aren’t typically things I enjoy at all). I also never took to Curb Your Enthusiasm, and have never had any interest in Monk or The New Adventures of Old Christine, and proudly do not watch Two and a Half Men. I did watch 17 different shows this past year that classify themselves as comedies, so the list of potential nominees went pretty deep.
