    Discuss the new Variety Sketch and Variety Talk show categories here.

    Choose the nominees for both categories in our predictions center.

    We haven’t heard back from the networks about several of these shows yet and are strictly taking guesses where they belong. There certainly aren’t enough sketch shows to justify an entire new category with six nominees.

    If you see any errors or omissions, speak up.

    I’m assuming SNL’s slot will be taken over by Oliver but I would be on the lookout for James Corden. His show is already viral in its first week

    Late-night comedy shows are both sketches and interviews so you really can’t say they’re just talk and as for the sketch category I can only count four sketch comedy shows, how can that be an entire category? Can anyone else think of more?

    Yeah, even though I love a lot of the shows in Variety Sketch, there really aren’t enough to warrant SIX nominees. I guess we’ll see what happens.

    Obvious locks at this point:
    Saturday Night Live
    Portlandia
    Inside Amy Schumer
    Key & Peele

    Beyond that, I guess @midnight has visibility (considering it was on after The Colbert Report back when that aired) to be the no. 5 slot.

    And then it’s just a free for all. I would love for Comedy Bang Bang to get in there but I don’t know how much visibility it has compared to Comedy Central sketch shows like Drunk History or Kroll Show.

    Yes @Midnight was the other one I was forgetting. I think that’ll have a shot at getting in and I guess Kroll Show due to it being the final season of that show.

    The lineups for both are pretty clear.

    Sketch:

    Amy Schumer
    Key and Peele
    Portlandia
    @midnight
    Kroll

    Talk:

    Colbert
    Daily Show
    Fallon
    Oliver
    Kimmel
    Maher

    I really wish Conan would get back in.

    Does anyone think there is a chance Craig Ferguson gets in? His final stretch was more legendary than most others, and his final episode (up until the Leno interview) rivalled Johnny Carson finale.

    I don’t think Craig will make it in sadly. Especially with a potential Letterman farewell nomination. If Letterman gets back in he will knock out Oliver or Kimmel

    Oh damn, I didn’t realize Letterman’s final show would be in May – I assumed it would be later. Oh well, there goes my hopes of Craig getting recognized

    Craig just got nominated for a Daytime Emmy for hosting Celebrity Name Game which he so deserves to win! I think that’ll be his chance for gold this year

    ThemeParks4Life, why Kroll Show when The Soup already has an Emmy nomination?

    Of course, we do not actually know what category The Soup will end up in, as it is neither a talk nor a sketch show.

    The Emmy rulebook says that there will be six nominees per category, but also says on the same page that the number of nominees in a category cannot exceed a third of the contenders on the ballot.  There were only thirty-five on the combined ballot last year and most of those were talk shows.  So what rule supercedes the other when there are not eighteen sketch shows on the ballot?

    Rooting super hard for Comedy Central. Hopefully the hideous SNL luck here will begin and stop at the foreseable guranteed nominations.
