As previously noted in a rational and thoughtful manner, the Emmys reached a new low yesterday with the nomination of Family Guy as Best Comedy Series. On the other hand, Dr. Horrible got a nomination in the newly created short-format live-action entertainment program category, so at least the Academy's got that going for them, which is nice.
Ten shows that received three and only three 2009 Primetime Emmy Awards nominations:
- The Kennedy Center Honors
- A Colbert Christmas: The Greatest Gift Of All
- Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations
- The Librarian: Curse Of The Judas Chalice
- The Colbert Report
- True Blood
- The Big Bang Theory
These ten shows neither infuriate nor excite me.
