Otherwise, good luck distinguishing this rather dreary ceremony from any other year's.

TCA Awards: Orange Is the New Black, Breaking Bad Win Big

There were few surprises at the 30th Annual Television Critics Association Awards. Orange Is the New Black earned Outstanding New Program whileBreaking Bad's final season scored Program of the Year for the second consecutive season.

Question: Once again, this year's Emmy nominations are predictably boring.
