    Everybody Loves Raymond was completely shit out its first two years and got nominations for Series, Directing, Supporting Actor, Supporting Actress, Lead Actor, and Lead Actress. It eventually won comedy series for seasons 7 and 9.

    Interesting, but I don’t think this show will turn out like ELR, it will never reach that level of popularity.

    Does popularity matter in terms of nominations anymore though? Nobody watches Veep and it is beloved by the Emmys. It’s the lowest rated comedy winner ever.

    Cheers and The Amazing Race were not hugely popular there first season, and were only renewed because they became Emmy favorites.

    I think popularity matters a lot still yeah. Those early season veep series nominations are still kind of confusing too. Is Veep really that low rated still? I mean, it seems like a decent amount of people watch it, more than Insecure at least.

    Insecure season 1 had an average of about of about 400,000 and it is about to air on the same night as Game of Thrones.

    Veep had an average of about 1 million when it was airing the same night as Game of Thrones, once it didn’t have Game of Thrones to help it, it dropped to an average of about 600,000.

    Insecure had a lot of word of mouth and it’s going to air on the same night of Game of Thrones, which is a major boost. It should end up having rating less than  Veep season 5 but significantly more than Veep season 6.

    I’m currently predicting:

    Series
    Actress
    Writing
    Supporting Actress
    Guest Actor

    That’s stretching it for a show that was completely shut out its first year.

    It’s not uncommon for a show to break through in its second season. I think the Globes and critics will rally behind the show along with increased ratings to push it to Emmy glory.

    Excellent season premiere and seamless transition from last season’s finale! Issa Rae is a revelation, plain and simple. The Emmys snubbing her shows how tragically out of touch they are as voters, but there’s nothing to be done at this point but hope for Globes/SAG/CC/TCA recognition leading into the next cycle.

    Good premiere, but didn’t absolutely love it or anything. Rae, Orji, and Ellis are all still fantastic.

    Good episode. I love this show. This was much better than Game of Thrones to be honest. Hate me but it’s what I think.

    If Rae could breakthrough, this is a good tape.

    Hopefully Jay Ellis will be a guest.

    Lil Rel and Reina Hall made a cameo.

    I can’t wait for Sterling K. Brown.

    Not an amazing episode but on a technical standpoint it looks so much better. I need to this episode get a cinematography nomination.

    My grade- B+

    MVP- Issa Rae

    Insecure and GOT aren’t really comparable shows. The writing and dialogue of insecure are usually better but I’d still wipe it’s existence and any memory I have of it for just one extra minute of game of thrones.

    I know they aren’t comparable but if someone told me I could only watch one of them for the rest of my life, I’d easily chose Insecure, one of the best shows on TV, over Game of Thrones, an overrated, flawed, and frustratingly enjoyable fantasy epic. I still love Game of Thrones, but I love this so much more.

    I was only comparing them because they are both on HBO and on the same night.

    Great start to the season! Issa Rae was fantastic as usual. Orji also slayed and I’m so glad that Natasha Rothwell is a series regular – she’s hella funny.

    Grade A-

    Love this premiere. Insecure is definitely expanding its universe and reach this season. Anticipating loving it more.

    I agree — solid premiere. But that final Lawrence/Issa scene did not work for me. I wish this season moves on from that quickly.

    Same, I looked away for like 5 seconds and turn back and they’re fucking and I’m like what, how?

    I was under the impression that Issa was just daydreaming that part. Lmao. But if they actually slept together I don’t think they’re getting back together per the trailer where Issa asks Molly to teach her how to hoe.
