Congratulations to PBS for earning 37 Emmy nominations in this year's news and documentary categories. And congratulations to CBS for earning 31 nominations. HBO received 20 nominations and National Geographic received 19, while NBC received 17 and ABC received 9. So NBC received fewer nominations than HBO or National Geographic. That sounds about right.
CBS Evening News With Katie Couric received 8 nominations while NBC Nightly News received only 6. (ABC's World News Tonight trailed the pack with one nomination.) Funny thing--I didn't hear Brian Williams bragging about this on his broadcast. I guess Brian is just too darn humble to brag about his Emmy nominations. When he is humiliated by Katie, that is.
