Woo! 2

We got 12 Daytime Emmy nominations, the most of any talk show!

We’re up against the Wayne Brady show, Dr. Phil, Live With Regis and Kelly, and the View for best show, and all of the hosts of those shows for best host.

The only show that got more Daytime Emmy nominations was the Young and the Restless, for which the Ellen DeGeneres show staff will collectively shake their fists at Conci’s mom. Just kidding…I think.

But that’s huge. For a freshman show to get that many Emmy nominations is pretty rare, and it means we’ve gotta be doing something right (not that the ratings and the 10,000+ phone calls I have to return weren’t already telling us that).

Hopefully there’ll be some sort of celebration when everyone gets back from vacation. For now, the Audience department will be doing the onsite celebration. Woo!

    Wayne Brady: Most annoying human. Ever.

    Dr. Phil: Should be shot. Several times.

    Regis: (shudder)

    Kelly: Dumb as a rock, but very MILF-y.

    The View: Downfall of western civilization.

    You guys better win… :)

    I think our most serious competition is Wayne Brady. He won last year, and his show’s getting the ax at the end of the season, so they might give it to him in protest/consolation.

    Personally, I think a talk show is the wrong format for him. It plays on his annoying qualities and not his strengths, and that’s why his ratings tanked. He’s funny as hell on Whose Line, and he’d probably do well on a sitcom. And probably will.

    However, I’ll go on record right now and say that if the View wins, I’m going to fucking scream. I HATE that show SO FUCKING MUCH.
