See, I see it more as Family Guy's "PTV" is the shoo-in because it was so anti-FCC ("Take THAT, President Bush!") as well as the fact that Scientology is so pervasive amongst potential voters.

Despite Rain Wilson and The Shield getting hosed, there are some good choices here. Go 24, Arrested Development, and The Office! But this tribute crap for a show in its' last season needs to stop, in this case Will & Grace. That show is about 4 seasons past it's prime, as is West Wing.

Whoa whoa whoa. THE WEST WING, whilst off the boil for its past coupla seasons, should never, ever be equated with WILL & GRACE in any way. Even the flimsiest of episodes are acted to the hilt.

    That show is about 4 seasons past it's prime, as is West Wing.


Season 5 and half of season 6 were pretty not good by Season 1-4 standards. But as soon as the series took a left turn into the whole Vinnick/Santos setup, it was a shot of adrenaline for the show since Sorkin in his 4-year run had before only showed us minor glimpses of campaign life, it was something that felt new. Season 7 was the best year that West Wing had artistically since Season 4, it's just that by then the ratings were too fargone to reflect that.

The show is no more because its rating is too low to justify its production expense any further. But they had a good year everywhere else, so this isn't just a farewell nomination.
