This year, the Emmys will feature everyone who has ever been on TV

As we've told you before, this is the 60th anniversary of the Emmy Awards. The September 21 show, telecast on ABC, will not only celebrate the Best Actresses and Best Dramas of the current prime time lineup, it will also celebrate the many stars and characters and shows of 10, 20, 40, 60 years ago.
ABC has created an ad that features a lot of those stars. A lot of the stars are easy to find and it's a no-brainer that they were included (Marge and Homer, Rod Serling, Dick Van Dyke, Stewie, the South Park guys, etc), but I'm happy to also see some people I didn't think would be in such an ad: Guy Williams as Zorro, Robert Culp from I Spy, Mike Connors from Mannix, Tim Daly from Wings, Wally Cox from Mr. Peepers, among others.
People I saw while scanning the ad that kinda bummed me out: Howie Mandel (Deal Or No Deal era, not St. Elsewhere), Erik Estrada, and, too many celebs from the same show, though I guess including them really makes the ad well-rounded. I'm happy that there doesn't seem to be any reality show stars (that I can make out, anyway - did I miss one?).
