Watching the Emmys right now

    I'm so embarrassed for poor Josh Groban.

    Happy for Zeljko Ivanek. He's been great in everything for years.

    The awards' credibility, for me, was shot to hell when I noticed that SNL was nominated for a comedy writing Emmy.

    I did laugh at Ricky Gervais' nice bit, though, especially when he wondered if the Emmy he got from Carrell was "a shoddy knock-off." Hi-larious "Office" shot.

    Wasn't that the worst opening ever? Way too talky and not funny at all.

    Yeah, and I was so happy that Piven nailed them on it, too. "I could just talk for 12 minutes, but that was the opening..." Right off the bat. My esteem for him jumped up a notch or two.

    The Laugh-In bit was awful.

    Somebody let me know when The Wire gets an Emmy.

    Until then, boycott will remain in effect.

    Holy guano, Batman! Just switched back from the game for Martin Sheen's bit. Didn't realize he never got an Emmy for The West Wing. I repeat -- the Emmys are a sham.

    Damn, Colbert and Stewart are the funniest guys on TV.

    Not as much as the Grammys.

    I didn't even know this was on.

    And I knew, just didn't care. Agreed with all above: Not funny. And a sham.

    This is painfully bad.

    They're cutting off Tom Hanks. Tom Hanks! They let Howie Mandel rattle on about St. Elsewhere (which I loved) but are rushing a legend?
