    “The Walking Dead” is the most-watched show on TV these days but it only contends for Creative Arts Emmys. And there are a ton of other shows that have critics swooning and viewers tuning — such as “Hannibal” and “Mr. Robot” — but we know that they will get little, if any, love from the Emmys.

    Should the TV academy create a separate category — like it did for Best Western back in 1959 — to honor these shows?

    No. If a show isn’t good enough or popular enough to win a Primetime Emmy, then you’re just belittling the show and genre by creating a category just for them.

    Is Paul an editor or something, trying to drum up traffic? He’s made 4 threads in 5 mins.

    As executive editor, Paul is second in command.

    The solution is not to create more categories.

    It is to craft a show so undeniably good that the voters have to take notice. And no, ‘Hannibal’ is not that show.
