2009 Primetime Emmy Nominations

2009 Emmy nominations

Bright and early this morning, Chandra Wilson and Jim Parsons announced the nominees for the 61st Primetime Emmy Awards.

Just like last year, we saw many first-timers named and a long list of cable acknowledgements (for both pay and basic channels). Thanks to expanded categories, we also saw a number of surprises (Flight of the Conchords, ) and overdue nominations (How I Met Your Mother, Big Love).

For the second year in a row, , with its 16 nominations, topped all drama programs. Meanwhile, 30 Rock broke comedy records with a whopping 22 noms. Overall, HBO was the most-nominated network with 99 mentions while NBC - yes, NBC - came in second.

This year’s ceremony will be hosted by Neil Patrick Harris on Sept. 20 on CBS.

Reality hit ABC’s reality programs yesterday evening. Without the help of Dancing with the Stars, The Bachelorette was just another dating show. CBS’ repeat-filled lineup was actually the victor in both the viewers and the demos last night.

Monday Ratings: Lackluster Finales for Heroes, Chuck

If there ever was a time for fans to come out and support Chuck, it would have been last night. Unfortunately, the numbers for both NBC finales were basically flat from last week. (At least the network has already declared that Heroes will get a return.) Meanwhile, FOX beat out CBS in a tight race for the demos while ABC was in first with the viewers.

Tuesday Ratings: DWTS Can’t Help The Unusuals

ABC, apparently not feeling the love from Cupid, decided to try out another struggling series last night. Unfortunately, The Unusuals failed to deliver as well. Although the the program did just as well as it did last Wednesday, it didn’t improve despite a better lead-in.

Monday Ratings: Bones is No House

Attempts to give Bones more attention didn’t do much for either the show or the network. Despite decreased competition from CBS, the program pulled in smaller numbers than the normal slot holder. The series also declined from its last Thursday outing.

Monday Ratings: Suburbia Survives the Evening

Yesterday’s premiere of Surviving Suburbia did well despite NCAA competition. The program had the best numbers for a comedy debut since the opener of Samantha Who? in October 2007. (A Dancing with the Stars lead-in being the common denominator.)

Despite all the 10’s issued on Dancing with the Stars last night, ABC narrowly lost the demos to FOX yesterday. Hot ballroom action did stir up the evening’s biggest audience though.
