My predictions: 4/5, picking “The Big Bang Theory” over “Hot in Cleveland”
Who’s missing: “The Big Bang Theory,” “Parks and Recreation”
This is a bit of a puzzle. The high-rated TV Land sitcom Hot in Cleveland surely made history today by earning not one but two nods, but does it deserve it? Not really. Sure, it may include Emmy-nominated actresses Wendie Malick and Jane Leeves, and of course, Betty White, but still. It doesn’t belong here, especially when the two shows listed above aren’t here. The other four nominees are expected: hot shows Glee and Modern Family and perennial favorites 30 Rock and The Office. “Glee” won last year, “30 Rock” the year before that, and “The Office” twice before that.
Who could win? It’s Modern Family’s turn.
