    Every year, one or two shows gets completely finished off by the Emmy Gods and gets thrown off the radar. Which shows do you think will meet their fate in 2012?

    Dexter, House and The Office.

    Yeah, I think The Office is likely done, House might squeak out a nod for Hugh Laurie, but that’s about it. Dexter, I think might stick in for awhile longer.

     

    I also think we’ll see 30 Rock’s nomination totals decline this season.   Tina Fey will likely still get in and Alec Baldwin, but I think it’s out of the series race and the supporting players won’t get in anymore.

    30 Rock will never be out of the series race until it is out of the airwaves. I’d like to say the same about Jane Krakowski, but I know that’s not true. I still have her in my predix though.

    Dexter is out. Even the biggest hardcore fans of the show admit this season was awful. And after all the bad press and negative reception from the public for that finale, it’s done. Even for Michael C. Hall, as there are many high profile actors in big projects this year.

    Also, the little I saw was worst than season 6 of 24 and season 2 of Desperate Housewives. When something is THAT awful, I don’t think it matters how many times it has been nominated in the past, it’s not coming back.

    Glee might also finally get snubbed.

    I think it depends on how much longer the show continues to run after Baldwin’s exit this season.

    ^ But since he’s still in this season and the show still gets a lot of nominations and is not going through a backlash, it’s a bit early to say “30 Rock” could be snubbed. In fact, so far, season unaired, it might be one of the only locks of the Comedy Series category.

    I don’t think Dexter is completely out, It will get a nod for Mos Def, Maybe one for Hall and writing for the episode Just Let It Go.

    I doubt Dexter will be able to get anthing but a return for Hall, if that.

    The Office could be out, but I think it’s more likely that Glee gets the boot. Maybe both. Nah. One of them will return.

    Unless it turns into complete garbage there’s no way 30 Rock will ever be snubbed for series. Krakowski, however, is on the bubble.

    When you say “done,” I think of shows like Grey’s AnatomyEntourage and Weeds, which still receive a few Creative Arts nominations but have little to no chance of making it in the major categories.

    Denis, Dexter has never received a writing nomination (at the Emmys, anyway) and I doubt it will happen this season.

    Dexter is deader than dead; the terrible season would have done it in already but Homeland overshadowing it in buzz was the last nail in the coffin.  I’d love to declare The Office dead, but I feel like it’ll never die.

    Which is strange, because the Emmys have never fully embraced it. Despite its Outstanding Comedy Series win in 2006, the Academy has basically treated it like Curb Your Enthusiasm, their other perennial nominee. Compare their Emmy reception to 30 Rock, Arrested Development and Modern Family…

    For some reason I feel like 30 Rock could fall out this year.  Against all logic obviously.  Just a gut feeling that they may be done with the show.

    Wait, you think Dexter can get a writing nomination for THIS season? I’m sorry, but I don’t see it. No way the writers branch would ever nominate it with so many great pilots and “Mad Men” coming back. The main reason for the backlash this season is the writing.
