Boardwalk Empire

The Golden Globe contenders for the 2010-11 season were officially announced Tuesday morning in Beverly Hills by Katie Holmes, Josh Duhamel and Blair Underwood.

Last year's Best Comedy Series winner, Glee, lead all television programs with a total of five nominations. Five series -- 30 Rock, Boardwalk Empire, Dexter, The Good Wife and Mad Men -- tied for second place with three nods each.

Here are some of the notable omissions/inclusions from this year's list of nominees:

  • The Good Wife was the only non-cable series to be recognized for Best Drama.
  • The Walking Dead replaced that other horror series (True Blood), giving AMC two nominations in the Drama category.
  • The limitations of the Best Supporting Actor category meant only two acting noms for the cast of Modern Family.
  • Jennifer Love Hewitt has found herself pitted against Claire Danes ... and Dame Judi Dench.

The 68th Annual Golden Globe Awards -- hosted again by Ricky Gervais -- will air Jan. 16 on NBC.

MONDAY (10/18)

  • The Real Housewives of Atlanta (Bravo, 9 p.m.): "This Kandi is sweet---she journeys to Palm Springs to extend support to Kim, who's been invited to perform at a gay-circuit party." She wants to be there to laugh with Kim, not at her.
  • Hoarders (A&E, 10 p.m.): "A woman battling cancer has a difficult time with treatments because of the condition of her home, which is covered with rat feces and hair." And she thought it was the chemo that was making her feel nauseated.
  • Weeds (Showtime, 10 p.m.): "The rest of the Botwin clan attempt to move some product at a children's concert." It takes a lot of green stuff for parents to pay for those shows ... and to sit through them, too.

Sister Wives-Sister Wives pulled in a record number of voyeurs for TLC on Sunday. The reality series about a polygamist family drew in the network’s largest audience (2.3 million) for a premiere in a year.

-Dexter Morgan saw killer numbers this weekend as well. The Season 5 premiere of Dexter—which also brought in 2.3 million—was Showtime’s best opener in 15 years.

-Drummer Max Weinberg will not be joining Conan O’Brien for his new late-night talk show. Guitarist and keyboard player Jimmy Vivino will take over when Conan debuts on TBS on November 8.

-Joseph Cerniglia, who appeared on a 2007 episode of Kitchen Nightmares, was found dead in the Hudson River last week. He is now the second person connected to a Gordon Ramsay show to have committed suicide. (Hell’s Kitchen contestant Rachel Brown died in 2007.)
