    If Modern Family loses which show would take the emmy. My guess is Orange, Veep, or The Comedians. What do you guys think?

    From the choices, I think Transparent.   

    However, I think Modern Family is going to win yet again this year.

    5 years in I just have lost all hope that the emmys are going to pick another show. With the rule change and the emmys loving to repeat I just have lost all hope that this terrible show is ever going to lose.

    3x Comedy Series winner Tina Fey coming back to snatch.

    Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt should be an option.  Maybe Happyish should be too,.

    I agree. Kimmy Schmidt has some strong tapes to put together. Plus it’d be nice to see Tina Fey break the streak of the show that broke her streak.

    Veep seems like the smart choice

    I hope it’s Veep, but I voted for Transparent, based off what I’ve seen so far. It has the narrative and the quality of tapes to carry it to a win. Orange would have been the perfect show to take down Modern Family last year. But season 2’s drop in quality from season 1 makes me cringe.

    If anything defeats it, it will be The Comedians.

    With the new change in final round voting I could see Orange Is the New Black benefiting and winning. I don’t think any of the other former nominees are going to have much luck gaining traction. Transparent is much more dramatic than OITNB in tone so I doubt it could win for series.

    Transparent is topical, has the right amount of laughs and drama and is particularly well made. So I think that would win if anything takes down Modern Family.

    Not an option but I’m going with Kimmy Schmidt…if Orange stays in Comedy which i doubt, and definitely don’t want it to anyway, i think they’ll take it.

    Honestly, i just feel like whoever wins will feel like a “we’re tired of giving it to MF” win.

    Orange is the New Black might compete as a drama, but if it is a comedy, it has PGA and SAG wins in its back pocket.  That kind of broad popularity will particularly help under the new voting system in which there is less accountability that voters have watched tapes.  Also helping Orange is the New Black is that it had demonstrable support in its first season (leading nominations, three wins) and dramedy Ally McBeal had to wait until its second season to end Frasier‘s record streak.

    Transparent is not funny, but it led the WGA nominations and won DGA, indicating industry support and it has a boosted profile from the Globe win.  It has a clearer campaign than Orange is the New Black, which keeps switching categories and being called out for category fraud.  I think that its freshness and importance also count for something.

    Veep is yet to demonstrate enough industry support.  It has never been nominated for directing by the Emmys or DGA for example.  It also lost WGA this year to Louie after winning last year, so its time might have passed.

    The Big Bang Theory‘s time has probably passed, but it cannot completely be counted out since it is still television’s highest-rated comedy and has a surprising amount of support from the critics that keeps it from being seen as too lowbrow.

    Louie has won WGA twice and gets the requisite nominations from the Emmys, but is it really going to pull through finally for a seven-episode season?

    Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is the same brand of humour as 30 Rock, but it lacks glamour and Alec Baldwin.  A big question that I have is if anyone has seen it.

    Silicon Valley needs an acting/casting nomination.

    The Comedians is on FX, so the Emmys might ignore it.

    I have no idea if Grace & Frankie will be any good.

    Happyish has potential.

    I would actually say none because Modern Family is a behemoth, but Orange is the New Black I think has the strongest likelihood out of all of them.

    At this point they’re winning again. They will be able to come up with 6 episodes to convince the voters it can’t be that hard. They’ve done it before with seasons just as lame as this one. It’s the exact same thing they’ve been doing for at least their last three wins. Six consecutive Emmys is obviously the most ridiculous thing ever, so now more than ever that factor will count and will probably be the biggest thing against them and cost them the win. 

    The problem is always options. There are none. If Orange stays then that’s our only hope.

    Veep, Louie, Big Bang shoud’ve done better things in the past to prove they mean something to the Emmys outside their token repetitive wins. They have done nothing to show us they’re viable options outside of the three people they keep giving Emmys to for those shows. At least Orange ended up with a bunch of nominations those three shows, more than those shows had for a single season and it’s still new, it’s still growing and will be recent and fresh with a third season.

    I haven’t seen all Transparent and Kimmy Schmidt yet, but from what I’ve seen, they can’t beat Modern Family. I love Silicon Valley but they shouldn’t be on this list at all.

    We’re sadly looking at another very easy win for them.
