    So far this decade, none of its new network shows have gotten an Emmy nom for Oustanding Drama Series or Outstanding Comedy Series. The ones with support from multiple groups so far are:

    New Girl (TCA Comedy/Performer, Globe Comedy/Performer, WGA Episodic, Emmy Dir/Performer)

    Brooklyn (TCA Comedy, Globe Comedy/Performer, Sag Ensemble, Emmy Performer)

    Empire (TCA Program/Drama/Performer, Emmy Performer)

    Jane (TCA Comedy/Performer, Globe Comedy/Performer)

    Last Man on Earth (Emmy Wtg/Dir/Performer)

    Raising Hope (TCA Comedy, Emmy Performer)

     
    That all but one are Fox is…interesting.  
    Which would you give a Series nom? Obviously (given my sig) I would go with Jane.

    New Girl. I think it’s hilarious. Brilliantly written, great performances. Season 2 was knock out sheer brilliance. Season 4 (currently airing in the UK) is a triumph. Deschanel, Johnson and Greenfield should all have multiple nominations too.

    Since it is Series nominations, I’d give some love to New Girl seasons 1-2, B99 both seasons, LMOE, Cougar Town for at least season 1 and that is all.

    I’m really surprised that Brooklyn Nine-nine never caught on that much with the Emmys. After it won at the Globes, I figured it would be a major player, but it really stayed off the Emmy radar, aside from Braugher. I really like the show, and would love for it to pick up some more nominations if it stays at the same quality level as its first two seasons. Raising Hope was one of my favourites for its run, but I know it really didn’t fit the Emmy profile. I’m glad it picked up a few nominations, but I never felt it needed that sort of recognition.

    This would get my vote as well, a very deserving show overlooked so many times at so many award shows. At least Monica Potter got a Golden Globe nomination and a Critics Choice win. 

    The ensemble cast and the writing that dealt with real issues were stand outs for me. Such a shame that it wasn’t embraced.

    From the list above I’d vote for New Girl.

    Agreed!  I just finished watching the complete series and absolutely loved it.  It’s really too bad that the only major Emmy nomination it received was for Jason Ritter, when nearly every actor in the main cast was more deserving of accolades.

    I think Brooklyn Nine Nine deserved nominations for both seasons as Series, Actor, Sup Actor for Braugher and LoTruglio. With special mentions to Peretti for season 1 and Fumero for season 2. The lack of Emmy nods for this show amazes me. It’s a very Scrubs/Parks situation…hopefully like those shows, it’ll get recognition one of these days.

    Last Man on Earth should’ve been nominated this year for Season 1, plus the nominations it got. I don’t recall where Schall was placed. 

    New Girl for season 1, 2 and 4 for Comedy Series easily. Deschannel should be 4 time nominee, Johnson at least once, Greenfield should’ve repeated for season 2.

    It’s a shame “Raising Hope” never got into Series, especially with Martha Plimpton and Cloris Leachman getting noms for the first season, which shows it was on their radar.  

    It isn’t the first time that Greg Garcia has been snubbed by the Emmys– “My Name is Earl” won Writing, Directing, and Supporting Actress (Jaime Pressly), yet its leading man (Jason Lee) and the series itself couldn’t even land a single nomination. At least Garcia won the Writing Emmy for it.

    Do not sell it short.  That first season also won casting and editing. 
    How a show can be the best written, directing, edited and casted, but
    not remotely one of the best shows overall is beyond me.

    I voted for The Last Man on Earth, not that the site registered it.  That is the only one from the list that actually deserved not just a series nomination, but a series win that it did not get.  (Kristen Schaal committed category fraud by submitting lead.)  Honourable mention to Hannibal, which was better than everything that Breaking Bad beat the first time.

    I see that jjjmoss does not respect the Critics’ Choice, although maybe that is a good thing or Mom would have had a spot in the poll.  That point about Fox is interesting.

    New Girl really could have been the new Friends. It is still so good.

    I also tried to vote for Last Man on Earth. The fact that it didn’t even get nominated is frustrating and headscratching, given the other major noms it received.

    It’s no where on the Emmy radar, but Review also deserves a Comedy Series nom.

    Also, I didn’t see all the shows nominated for Best Drama this year, but Daredevil was better than at least Mad Men and House of Cards. So I’d say it deserved a series nom too.

    New Girl! It is so refreshing, always sharp and witty, and the cast selection is on POINT

    Whoo, Blackish breaks through!

    Though it doesn’t exactly look like a pattern.
    It looks like there’s a 3-way tie for network drama series with the most Primetime (not Creative Arts) noms, with 1 each: Good Wife, Empire, and Murder. That’s pretty sad.
    For Comedy there’s Blackish with 3, Modern Family with 2.

    No writing despite WGA and single submission, no directing despite big names, no editing/casting/sound and you cannot say that the actors carried them when Laurence Fishburne did not get in, so black-ish is very much a product of the seven-slot/mark-ten system.
