What a Monday folks! We had one long-held rumor confirmed for us, and one nice little surprise come to light.

  • First, the rumor in question. Yes, we’re being treated to two more seasons ( 13 episodes each) of Friday Night Lights. Bickety-Bam! NBC is continuing their partnership with Direct-TV so the dish will get the eps first and NBC will run them second. I personally don’t care when they air, so long they run as promised. This season has been spectacular and rumor has it the season finale is a beaut.’ Great determination from this show’s rabid fan base. They never gave up hope. Clear eyes, full hearts, can’t lose!
  • Second, a jolly piece of news today: the syndication rights to The Office have been sold to stations covering 93% of the country. What does this mean for you? Unless you live in Moose Junction (and maybe even there) The Office will be on 5 nights a week in a city near you. What nice news. The show currently pops up in re-runs on TBS but the potential to see it everyday is a nice step-up. Not only will this get the show out to the latecomers who “didn’t understand it” the first time around, it also gives us long-running fans something to smile about. My hope? It replaces the current Two and A Half Men hour currently soaking up time on my Fox affiliate.

I’m trying to watch Better Off Ted again. I just don’t think it’s for me. It’s a little too cute for my taste. I can almost see it animated. 5 second review over, on to the updates.

  • Barbara Walters is 79-years-old. It’s about time she retires. (Sidenote: Regis Philbin is also 75+. Both of them look a decade younger than John McCain.
  • Mad Men update! Season 3 starts shooting in May and premieres in July. Everyone’s favorite closeted Italian Sal, played masterfully by Bryan Batt, said his character will probably never come out. “There’s going to be more torture in his story, “ he said. I can’t wait.
  • Things are worse than I thought: Two and a Half Men just got renewed through 2012. Sweet jesus. Won’t they be at 3 men by then?
  • I didn’t anything was off limits for Family Guy but apparently this was.
  • And my favorite non-TV related link of the week: Lunch Bag Art. One awesome papa draws gorgeous pictures on his children’s lunch bags. I’m sure a book deal is fast approaching.

So there’s a lot to say about the Emmy nominees and I may not be able to get it all in this post.

First, if you take a quick look at the list (which is impossible by the way, there are a lot of categories) you’ll discover a few shows/actors/etc that were really surprising. Best Week Ever took a look at some of the shocking inclusions but I made a list of my own.

-Take a look at this list of Emmy nominees: Canterbury’s Law, Disney Phineas And Ferb, Kid Nation, Pirate Master, Saving Grace. Please note that the list includes Pirate Master and one of my favorite shows of all time, Kid Nation. Can you guess what category this is? Outstanding shows no one watched? Worst shows ever according to the NY Times Arts section/the rest of society? Nope? Outstanding Original Main Title Music. I know! Who knew? If Kid Nation wins an Emmy…in anything, it will be the best day ever.

-John Adams smoked every single mini-series category. The HBO miniseries earned a mind boggling 23 noms. 23. Expect to hear their patriotic theme a million times on show night.

-Tina Fey and the rest of the 30 Rock gang scored 17 nominations, granted four of those are in one category (Outstanding Guest Actor In A Comedy Series). This show still doesn’t get enough love. I think the only way people will watch it is if it can sweep the comedy, actress in a comedy series, and actor in a comedy series. The thing is, I think it can and will.

-Bryan Cranston got nominated for his superb work on Breaking Bad. My roommates hated this show and to them I say, ” I told you so.”

Other than Two and a Half nomination (seriously?) the list is pretty much exactly as I’d hoped. You can read the whole thing right here. Despite the strike, it looks like it’s going to be an excellent awards season.

For the first time, the folks over at The Emmys decided to let the fans in on the process and released the top 10 finalists in the Outstanding Comedy and Drama categories.

There’s no voting or fan favorite or anything. They just want you to know who the heavy hitters were before the list gets narrowed down to five official nominees. It’s kind of a neat idea.

Here are the lists. I took the liberty of highlighting my picks for you.

Outstanding Comedy Series Finalists

  • Curb Your Enthusiasm
  • Entourage
  • Family Guy
  • Flight of the Conchords
  • The Office
  • Pushing Daisies – Great new show but it’s a little soon to compete with the big boys.
  • 30 Rock
  • Two And A Half Men – Why God Why?
  • Ugly Betty
  • Weeds

This drama list is loaded with good stuff. I don’t envy the Academy at all.

Outstanding Drama Series Finalists

  • Boston Legal
  • Damages
  • Dexter
  • Friday Night Lights
  • Grey’s Anatomy
  • House
  • Lost
  • Mad Men
  • The Wire

Guess, wonder, hypothesize, etc. All of the nominees will be announced on July 17.
