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