    When Emmy nominations come around, it’s easy to pick out the familiar names that regularly get mentioned.  But do you love a show that has no chance to get a nomination even though you feel it is a great show??

    Here are some of my picks:

    Suburgatory: a funny charming show that manages to be both whimsical and strangely poignant at times.  Jeremy Sisto is aces on this show, and Cheryl Hines takes a stereotypical character and gives her a lot of soul.

    Being Human: The US adaptation of the BBC drama about a vampire, werewolf, and ghost is actually surprisingly deep.  The show tackles real questions of loyalty, trust, and family, albeit of the supernatural persuasion.  The show also manages to balance the drama with moments of really great comedy.

    Any other choices that come to mind??

    Don’t Trust the B in Apartment 23 will probably get no nominations this year even though James van Der Beek sorta kinda maybe deserves some recognition.

    Cougar Town. Courteney Cox and Busy Phillips had great submissions for each of the three seasons aired.

    Wilfred, the show is great but I don’t think it will be nominated.

    Cougar Town
    Happy Endings
    The Middle
    Suburgatory

    ABC comedies that are not titled Modern Family are underrated

    No no, Happy Endings won’t be nominated. Even if it ever had a chance, Community has now taken over.

    Community looks to have a shot in writing this year.

    I have a hard time believing all this Community hype, so I’ll leave it as a “I’ll believe it when I see it” situation. Even if it gets that writing nomination everybody is waiting for, it will still belong in this thread for plenty other categories where it won’t be nominated.

    -Cougar Town is an easy choice for this
    -Merritt Wever for Nurse Jackie has deserved this since season 1
    -Happy Endings, just like Community, miracles will be needed
    -Eden Sher delivers in ways that only Jane Krakowski and maybe Julie Bowen have this season in that category but will never be nominated

    Yet another reason I like the Television Critics Choice Awards.

    Community” doesn’t have a prayer, unless the TV Academy so enjoyed saying FU to NBC for Conan O’Brien that they decide to do the same this year for Dan Harmon.

    Other shows worthy of some recognition that almost definitely won’t get any: “The Walking Dead,” “Parenthood,” and “Southland” — though I think Lucy Liu has a decent shot at a guest actress nod for “Southland.”

    Shameless: It can be dragging at times, but the awesome ensemble (including the wrongfully underrated Emmy Rossum) and the sharp writing deserves some sort of recognition. It’s more deserving than certain other contenders IMO.

    The Middle: The entire cast is perfect and the acting is superb, especially from Patricia Heaton, Atticus Shaffer, and Eden Sher. I have a theory that if The Middle debuted a year before Modern Family, their would already have been love for Heaton and Sher.

    Fringe: Specifically John Noble. He takes the whole Mad Scientist character to new depths and dimensions previously unimaginable. 

    Parenthood: See Shameless.

    Hot in Cleveland. With the exception of Betty White and the (sometimes) weak writing, it’s a pretty good show.
