FTW is up with this garbage?
Who runs the Emmy's anyway?

This is why Hollywood sucks.

I never watched The Wire but aren't the Emmy's just about old people voting for the same old people? If The Wire wanted a nomination they should have added Julia Louis Dreyfus or someone like that to the cast.

This is the list:

ABCs Boston Legal
FXs Damages
Showtimes Dexter
Foxs House
ABCs Lost
AMCs Mad Men.

Boston Legal and House have no business being on there, and I'm a huge fan of House. Dexter was OK, but nothing I rearranged my schedule to watch. Lost is Lost, and although it's had a couple of weak seasons while there was confusion about how long it would run, this last season was fantastic. Damages is a work of unmitigated geniusa jewel that I didn't discover until it was off the air. My wife and I watched the entire season in 3 days.

And The Wire was better than all of them combined. It was Homicide 2.0.

As for Mad Men...I watched a couple of episodes, and I simply cannot see the media infatuation with that show. I don't know why anyone would want to watch a show that beats into the viewer's head how vastly more enlightened we are now than we were then.

I think House is laughably horrible. How they run that hospital without PAs, MAs, nurses, techs is hard to figure.
