    “Louie”
    most definitely, it’s becoming one of the most influential and important
    comedies of our time already (besides being my favorite show on tv), even if
    it’s still small in viewership, and it’s also probably the most visionary
    driven series, because C.K. is just a fantastic writer (and has also really
    comes into his own directing) and with the freedom he has, and the level of the
    material he does with that, it’s the kind of stuff that should recognized
    because it’s bound to leave a mark.  

    However,
    “Happy Endings” is the most consistently funny show on tv, with the
    best emsemble chemistry right now (at the point it’s hard to pick a favorite
    character above everyone else because they all work so well together). And the
    “joke-a-minute” formula of show is very hard to do so, and yet this
    season was incredibly strong (especially the second half) and the timing is
    (almost) always exceptional.

    I’d say both
    shows would be extremely deserving.

    Louie and Happy Endings will clearly get all of the votes here.

    Where is Cougar Town? It’s the funniest comedy on television this past season except for maybe Curb Your Enthusiasm.

    Can’t believe The Middle hasn’t managed a single nomination. The Emmys don’t seem to have room for another ABC family sitcom.

    I know and no love for Patricia Heaton!

    Community, Louie, Cougar Town, The Middle, Family Guy.   Desperate Housewives should deserve the last chance to be on the emmys radar.

    Out of that list, Louie and Happy Endings. They’re both excellent shows for very different reasons.

    It’s hard for me to choose between Happy Endings and Community, both of which I think are deserving.  Community is smarter, but Happy Endings is funnier.  And Community can go a little crazy sometimes, so Happy Endings it is.

    It breaks my heart that Raising Hope is not only missing in the poll options but also not been mentioned in 11 posts either. 

    Martha Plimpton (the one with the best submission last year) brings her A-game every episode. Cloris Leachman is automatically going to be in Supporting Actress, just on name alone. Fortunately, she’s deserving. I much prefer her in Supporting than frauding it up in Guest. Lucas Neff may seem to have a bland role but playing the straight man with all these whackos makes him shine just as much as the rest. Then my personal MVP is Supporting Actor Garrett Dillahunt. Like, he should be a lock to win.

    Modern Family is hilarious, as are many of the ones above. But of all the comedies on television, Raising Hope is number one. I would be fine with it sweeping Comedy Series, Lead Actor, Lead Actress, Supporting Actor, Supporting Actress, Writing, and Directing. All would be deserved. Sadly, it’s two biggest chances are unlikely (Plimpton) and possible-but-barely (Leachman).

    Sometimes great obscure comedy series fall onto the Emmy radar and it’s a beautiful thing – Arrested Development, Louie, Parks & Rec, The Comeback – but then there are those that don’t – most recently, Cougar Town and Raising Hope – and it’s just a nice little reminder that they don’t always nominate the best.

    I would say Community, Raising Hope and Louie, but mostly Louie is my favorite, there’s nothing like it on television and C.K is brilliant, but Raising Hope is having a tremendous season and Plimptom is my favorite comedy actress on tv, she’s great in what she does and so is the whole cast. Community should’ve been recognized a long time ago, but aparently voters had to pick between the “cool-nerd over the top show” which is TBBT and “the underdog nerd-but-incredible-funny-and-brilliant-show” which is Community. Huh…what you gonna do? U.u

    I have not seen happy endings, but it is on my list of things to check out. With all of my favorite shows now on break, I’ll be sure to put in some time, but until then…

    My vote(s) go to Community and Louie. They’re not always funny, but they’re incredibly inventive and great shows. Obviously, we get into the debate of whether or not a comedy is measured by its humor versus its nuance and intelligence. Louie and Community are quite balanced in that sense. Therefore, they’re the better comedies.
