And The Emmy Goes to Cash Cab!


Apparently the Daytime Emmys were last night. You, like me, probably didn't know because they were cast off to the CW on a Sunday night. If you watch soaps or daytime TV, perhaps you'd be invested, but I gave up caring about Daytime TV when Passions was cancelled (from NBC, not DirecTV).

Scanning the list of winners the next day, however, I notice something sorta awesome. Cash Cab won for best Game Show! Can you watch Cash Cab anywhere in the country? It feels very New York, kind of a cult show. But Cash Cab won the big prize. Congrats!

Other winners of note are Tyra's Show winning for best informative talk show (i hope she smiled with her eyes while accepting) and the ladies of The View sharing the win for Best Talk Show host. Poor Regis and Kelly snubbed again. Although I haven't watched their show in years so maybe the quality has fallen off. Nobody fights about Hot Topics like the View Ladies! They can't be denied! Also, Kevin Clash won for his performance as Elmo on Sesame Street and I realized that this year I met both him and Elmo on set and the memory of my visit to Sesame Street makes me very happy.
