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!
