Emmy Nominations Pose Interesting Question

Times are tough at the major television networks as I look at the nominees for “Best Drama” at this year’s Emmy Awards. The awards will be presented Sunday night.

The nominees are:

“Boardwalk Empire” HBO

“Breaking Bad” AMC

“Downton Abbey” PBS

“Game of Thrones” HBO

“Homeland” SHOWTIME

“Mad Men” AMC

Where’s ABC? NBC? CBS? Even FOX? I did some research and found that ten years ago the Big 3, or 4, were well represented.

2002 BEST DRAMA NOMINEES

“CSI”  CBS

“Law and Order” NBC

“24″ FOX

“West Wing” NBC

“Six Feet Under” HBO

20 years ago they were even stronger.

1992 BEST DRAMA NOMINEES

“I’ll Fly Away” NBC

“L.A. Law” NBC

“Northern Exposure” CBS

“Quantum Leap” NBC

“Law and Order” NBC

I don’t know the answer. If I did, I could probably be making millions as a network consultant. Maybe it’s too expensive for the networks to turn out quality dramas? It is easier to make this wonderful reality tv and I’m sure they’re spending millions or billions on sports contracts. It just looks like a dangerous trend.
