    Taken straight from the Emmy rules and procedures:

    13b.    Hanging Episodes for series eligibility: If an ongoing series has enough episodes in the current eligibility year to qualify as a series and has one or more episodes that are part of the series season that fall into the subsequent eligibility year, the “hanging episodes” that are in a contiguous rollout on the same distribution platform join in eligibility the already-qualified-as-eligible episodes of the series, as long as the hanging episodes air prior to the return of the first round ballots. For example, a comedy series that regularly airs on a weekly basis that has six episodes in the 2013 eligibility year and has two more episodes of its series season airing subsequently and on the same platform in the 2014 eligibility year would enter all eight episodes in 2013 eligibility. On the other hand, a comedy series that has two episodes in the 2013 eligibility year and six more episodes airing subsequently on the same platform in the 2014 eligibility year would enter the eight episodes only in 2014.    They would not be allowed to “sneak” the six episodes, e.g., post them on the internet or air them in an obscure time spot, in order to qualify the series in 2013.

    That answers my question about Inside Amy Schumer.
