You decide: Will ‘The Daily Show’ make it 10 in a row at Emmys for Best Variety Series?

Daily Show with Jon Stewart” has been named Best Variety Series for a jaw-dropping nine times in a row and is widely expected to win again this year. Nine of our Experts, all of our Editors and the vast majority of our Users are predicting it to prevail. 


One of our Experts is backing the bid by one-time “Daily Show” correspondent Stephen Colbert for his Comedy Central lead-out “The Colbert Report.”

Also expected to be back in the hunt are two NBC series: “Saturday Night Live,” which won this race in 1976 and 1993, and “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,” which landed its first bid last year.

Six-time champ “Late Show with David Letterman,” which is soon to celebrate its 20th anniversary on CBS, is predicted to return to the race after being bumped by TBS’s “Conan” last year. Neither that TBS talker, nor its nemesis, NBC’s “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” are forecast to be in the fight this year. 

Also likely to miss out on a bid is HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher” thus denying Bill Maher a chance to extend his record losing streak.

Instead, ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” is predicted to reap its first nomination in this competitive category. 

The fight for that last slot also includes two rookie shows “Inside Comedy” (hosted by David Steinberg) and “Kathy” (hosted by Kathy Griffin).
