Fess up: Which 2019 Emmy-nominated shows have you NEVER watched before — and will you start now? [POLL]

In this era of Peak TV, there is simply way too much content out there for one person to binge. That’s why awards shows like the Emmys are so important.

Each year the television academy doles out a seemingly endless number of awards to the most outstanding aspects of the boob tube, everything from Best Drama Series to Best Creative Achievement In Interactive Media Within An Unscripted Program (yes, that’s a real category). It’s my job to cover television, and yet every once in a while even I’m caught off guard by what voters choose to honor. Case in point: I had never watched a single episode of “RuPaul’s Drag Race” prior to host RuPaul Charles claiming his first trophy in 2016. And I had zero interest in watching another legal procedural until “The Good Wife” scored a whopping nine bids in 2010. Now both are among my favorite shows of the past decade — thanks, Emmys!

So fess up: Which of this year’s nominees for Best Drama Series and Best Comedy Series have you NEVER seen before? Vote in our poll below for as many options as you wish (keep clicking that “replay” button), and then tell us in the comments section whether this year’s Emmy nominations have convinced you to finally start watching.
