The 59th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards Coverage

Emmy AwardsThe 59th Annual Emmy Awards has not even started, yet I’m already sensing sensing a weird vibe about tonight’s telecast.  Will the show be a celebration of those young and new (e.g. Heroes)?  Will it be a tribute to those bowing out (James Gandolfini and crew)?  Or will performer Kanye West somehow manage to cast a controversial shadow over the rest of the ceremony?

What a difference a year makes.  Twelve months ago, we were still handing out trophies to stars from Will & Grace and The West Wing (those shows feel so five-years ago now).  Today, we welcome a new crop of nominees including Ugly Betty and 30 Rock for Best ComedyLast year, we were entertained by an always-hilarious Conan O’Brien.  This year, we are threatened by a song and dance number from this year’s host, Ryan Seacrest.  Last August, 24 snagged the award for Best Drama.  This September, it’s not even nominated (yet somehow Boston Legal is).

I think it would be safe to assume the voters would predictably (and respectfully) shower The Sopranos with honors, but I’ll still be crossing my fingers for an upset sometime tonight.  We’ll need something to talk about tomorrow…

Here’s the play-by-play of tonight’s events coming to you from the neglected West Coast!

Upcoming ‘30 Rock’ and ‘Earl’ Guest Stars

Posted by Wendy Michaels Categories: Comedy, Prime Time, NBC, My Name Is Earl,

Alyssa Milano Let the fall season begin. Please? I mean, how much longer do we need to wait before our favorite shows are back in full force? Turns out, just a little bit longer. Come on, we can make it! To hold you over… a little casting news. First up, The Sopranos’ star, Edie Falco, who will be joining 30 Rock for a guest stint. What’s that you say? Yes, I haven’t talked about how much I love 30 Rock in awhile. Please, tune in if you’ve never seen it because it is fantastic. Jerry Seinfeld will be appearing in the second season premiere, so I’m sure there will be plenty of laughs. As for Falco, no details on what role she’ll play, but according to Tina Fey, “We’re thrilled to have such an amazing actress come join us. Also, a lot of guys on our crew want The Sopranos ending explained to them.” And, have you seen Fey in the new American Express ad? She is beyond adorable.

On to My Name is Earl, which boasts the addition of Who’s the Boss and Charmed star Alyssa Milano this season for at least eight episodes. She may be a love interest for Earl. While I’ve never been a Milano fan, I do have a fond recollection of her in one of those Amy Fisher movies in the early nineties (you know, “The Long Island Lolita”?). At any rate, you can catch both of these funny shows when they return on September 27th (Earl) and October 4th (30 Rock). We’re in the home stretch, folks.
