I think Game of Thrones might come away with a lot of the awards because it has a lot of critics raving as well as audiences. But I also I like Justified as a drama. For comedy, I'm a Community fan hands down, though Louie was hilarious too.

The show I'm surprised to see showing up is The Good Wife because I've always brushed this off as just another courtroom drama. Maybe one of these days, I might just watch it and check it out. Of course I would need a sandwich after, it is after all called "The Good Wife". I jest.

  1. man, I've never really seen ANY of these shows...or even heard of some of them either! ha. kind of sad I guess.

  2. i've never seen The Good Wife either. hhmmm.
    i can definitely see Game of Thrones piling up the awards; GoT and The Killing have some of the best writing on TV.
    i've also never seen Raising Hope, but i can live with any of the other comedies winning.

  3. son, was the season finale of GoT ridiculoid or WHAT??!

  4. Game of Thrones will get a lot of them
