    In the history of the Emmy’s, only four shows have won the Best Comedy Series award 4 or more times. Those shows are The Dick Van Dyke Show (4 wins), Cheers (4 wins), All in the Family (4 wins), and Frasier (5 wins). Come Emmy Sunday, two shows stand a chance at joining this exclusive club, Modern Family and 30 Rock. Both shows currently have 3 Outstanding Comedy Series wins under their belt. With no clear frontrunner, either show could win on September 22nd and I wouldn’t be at all surprised. What I want to know is which show you think is more deserving of the honor. Personally, I’m routing for 30 Rock to become a four-time champ.

    30 Rock is one of the best comedy series in history. Modern Family isn’t. It’s gotta go to 30 Rock.

    30 Rock hands down! Krakowski is the best thing about that show!

    Neither show should receive the honor, but I’m predicting 30 Rock for the win.

    30 Rock. I think it was justified each of the three years that it won (even if I didn’t necessarily agree with it winning all three times), and it would be a good winner here.

    Modern Family didn’t have its strongest season this year, and I think that it deserves to be a two-time winner at most (at least based on its run up until now).

    Love them both so much, yes, I think modern family is every bit as amazing as it was in season 1. However 30 rock is a much better comedy, and if there is to be a rare 4 time champ I hope its 30 rock.

    It’s truly an apples vs. oranges proposition.

    That having been said, I do think that years from now, “Modern Family” will hold up much better than “30 Rock,” which sometimes dabbled a little too much in topical humor for its long-term good (see “Murphy Brown”). While its quality has certainly seesawed over the course of its run, “Modern Family” should remain relevant long after the series ends.

    Topical humor doesn’t necessarily makes a series dated. Watch a 90’s episode of The Simpsons for example. 30 Rock will hold just fine, because it isn’t just about the references, but they general construction of the jokes and the gags. MF in my opinion is not timeless, but just bland.

    Easily Modern Family for me.

    I’ve seen a handful of 30 Rock episodes, but I just can’t enjoy it.

    Without the slightest doubt in my mind, I can say 30 Rock is far and away superior to Modern Family. 30 Rock deserves a 4th Comedy Series Emmy for being one of the sharpest, wittiest, and most well written television shows ever. Modern Family deserves not to have been nominated.

    On its best day Modern Family is lapped 30 Rock with the latter not even breaking a sweat.

    I’ve personaly always considered 30 rock overrated even though I watch it, and honestly probably prefer MF when it comes ot just my personal taste, but I will admit that 30 rock is much more unique and ambitious. However regardless of my personal tastes I believe 30 rock is a much more iconic show and if they have to let a new show into that club 30 rock just has more of the feel of a record breaker. They like Modern Family but I’m not sure if they like it that much
