    Oh dear. Jon brought out the big guns submitting that 9/11 show. He’s going to be tough to beat, yet again. On the other hand, the Cornel West episode included that Palin smackdown which was mind blowingly perfect.

    Question: if Stephen ever does win for Outstanding Variety/Comedy Series, as Executive Producer, doesn’t Jon get an Emmy too?

    Oh dear. It’s close competition. VERY close. Both episodes are supremely superb in their own way. Jon’s showcasing of brave souls physically suffering from their immediate post-9/11 duties who are still not compensated for their self-sacrifice vs. Stephen’s magnificant smackdown of “Governish” Palin. This is gonna be lip-biting as the time gets closer.

    I agree. But I do wish Stephen would have submitted the show where he’s auctioning off his self portrait (he’s a humanitarian too, after all, just like Jon). It was absolutely hysterical and showed his incredible range as well as showing off his heart a bit too. I also would have loved for him to submit the 2 shows where he channeled his best Stan Laurel in demonstrating how to have tea with the Queen of England. I agree, the Palin smackdown was an absolute classic. But how are the voters going to say no to Jon’s (admittedly brilliant) episode with the 9/11 workers?
    Any chance of a tie? Has there ever been a tie before?
    Well. There should be. Definitely.

      There have been tie’s at awards shows before, but I cannot recall if it has ever happened at the Emmy’s or not.

    Well, the folks at The Daily Show and The Colbert Report certainly aren’t messing around. Those are two incredibly strong episodes. Everything about that January 18th episode of TCR was unbelievably brilliant, from the comments about Palin to the Coma Cozy. Actually, that episode was so amazing that I’m going to watch it again right now.

    I remember after reading the description, that was a great TCR episode, but for the last 11 months – almost exactly! I’ve hoped they would nominate the Steve Carell episode of July 7, 2010. Not to be. It was just so hilarious and perfect all around! But it was a long time ago.

    I just think the Emmy folks don’t like to break their ingrained decades old habit of voting for the same people each year so I’m not sure it matters which episodes are nominated! I just hope it will be a fun show. At least with Stephen nominated I pay attention to it now.
