Who decides? It’s not always as obvious as you think.
“Only” 12 episodes didn’t hurt Fawlty Towers in that regard.
The Prisoner only had, what, 18 (although it wasn’t a comedy)?
If you count the four Blackadder seasons as a single series, that’s still only 24.

Any program or movie that is shown in a non-broadcast public performance such as a movie theater before it airs on television is ineligible for an Emmy. AMPAS already has a similar rule (no TV pilots or episodes of TV series are eligible for Oscars); why not the Television Academy?

For those of you bemoaning “the death of network television series,” here is the list of Emmys won by series (well, series not named “Saturday Night Live,” anyway) on the five broadcast networks:
Character Voiceover (Family Guy, Fox)
Animated Program (The Simpsons, Fox)
Variety/Reality Choreography (World of Dance, NBC)
Scripted Program…[Read more]
Pardon me for being pedantic, but it’s “Brian and Stewie.”
I’m surprised it’s not a Bob’s Burgers opening, especially as Fox could use it to promote that show’s movie next summer, but then, The Simpsons just won the Animated Program Emmy, although they would have had to put the opening together in eight days if that had anything to do with it.
You must have a live stream of one of the Fox stations that got one of the “late” games today – the Giants-Tampa Bay game is just about over (unless the Giants score a touchdown and miss the extra point, which makes the game tied), and that’s the last game currently on Fox

Wait…were you talking about not airing a repeat of the ceremony out west, or NFL coverage affecting the pre-show?
If you’re talking about football, it should only affect the pre-show; even if a game goes into overtime, it should be over long before 8:00 Eastern. Also remember that it only affects certain cities; click here and scroll down to…[Read more]
According to the rules, plurality voting replaced preferential voting in 2016, and the option to have score-based voting (i.e. each voter gives a score to each nominee, and the highest average wins) was removed in 2018. The only options now are either plurality, or the system used for areas (each voter gives a separate yes/no vote for each…[Read more]
No; I am talking about not repeating the actual ceremony.
Los Angeles’s Fox affiliate KTTV appears to be the only (major) Pacific time zone station that will air a repeat of the ceremony at 8:00 Pacific. The latest TV listings show that Seattle, Portland, Sacramento, San Francisco, San Diego, and Las Vegas will not.
The Vegas Show acts, according to the show’s Paris Las Vegas website, are:
Detroit Youth Choir
and one “wild card” this year: Tyler Butler-Figueroa
(getting in ahead of Voices of Service for whatever reason – probably, “We already have two singing acts”)
There are six performances:
Thursday night, Friday…[Read more]
More like, another reason they shouldn’t be on Sunday night. NBC has no problem airing them on Mondays.
EDIT: Apparently, unless you can get the Los Angeles Fox station, if you live in the Pacific time zone, there will not be the usual repeat of the ceremony at 8:00 Pacific. As of Thursday morning, Seattle, Portland, Sacramento, San Francisco,…[Read more]
To see if your area will have an NFL game on Fox on late Sunday afternoon that will overlap the Emmy pre-show, click here and scroll down to the “Fox Single” map; the areas in blue/purple and light blue will be affected. Keep in mind that the networks do make changes up to pretty much the last minute. Also, some of the affected cities’ Fox…[Read more]
Not both pairs in the same year – 2019 was the first time since the current version of Guest Acting categories was created in 1989 (there were similar categories in the mid/late 1970s and mid 1980s, but the 1970s categories combined drama and comedy, and the 1980s ones combined men and women).
Here are the “pairs” I could find

That Don Guy replied to the topic Creative Arts Emmy Awards: Sunday Ceremony (Watch Live Coverage) in the forum Television 1 month ago
Yes. Having all of the Creative Arts categories on the same night resulted in, what, a five-hour ceremony? And has it been that many years since they were given out earlier in the day of the main ceremony?
I asked this yesterday, and the order was not made available until something like 20 minutes before the ceremony started.
Also, aren’t the…[Read more]

There’s a separate thread about the Hollywood Reporter “leak.” It turns out that all of the Sunday night “winners” just happen to be the first names listed in the nomination list for each category. The only winner HR knows (and, ironically enough, is the one not listed) is Crazy Ex-Girlfriend for Scripted Series Choreography – because it has…[Read more]
That Don Guy replied to the topic Has the Hollywood Reporter leaked tomorrow's winners? in the forum Television 1 month ago
They’re the first entries in the official nomination List. The Comedy Guest Actress list also has Emma Thompson before Sandra Oh for their SNL hosting appearances, and Ron Cephas comes before Michael Angarano for This is Us in the Comedy Guest Actor list, so multiple nominations for a show in a category don’t seem to be in any order.
Then explain how Love, Death and Robots beat, for example, Robot Chicken in Short Form Animation.
Question: how many of the voters actually watch all of the episodes of all of the nominated series? If the only time they watch Bojack Horseman is the screener of the episode in question, and the episode is (from what I hear) a 20-minute Bojack…[Read more]
