I'm so glad to see The Middle get some recognition. It's a wonderful, funny, good-hearted show. It's not particularly original or ground-breaking, it just does what it does exceptionally well. I'm also glad to see Justified get recognized for its amazing second season.

I would like to have seen more recognition for the reality shows on Discovery, although I am glad to see Mike Rowe get a nomination. He manages to find the humor without making fun of either the work or the people who do it. That's a rare and special talent.

In an ideal world of television, this is what the Emmy nominations would like, give or take only one or two names. It's great to see the critics consistently demonstrating such high level support for excellent, criminally underappreciated shows like Fringe, Justified, Game of Thrones, Archer, Community, and Parks and Recreation whose writers, actors, and producers are unfortunately likely to be shortchanged when award season begins in earnest.
