If only we didn't have to sit through an Emmy show to appreciate the Emmy winners.
This year's labor of laboriousness, hosted by a game but ultimately defeated Jane Lynch (revealing that even this versatile talent couldn't rise above such mediocre material), was thankfully enlivened by a number of surprise ...
Our roundup of the most memorable moments of the Emmys:
14. Worst Opening-Number Follow-Up: Emmy host Jane Lynch takes viewers on a tour through a fictional building where all TV sets and characters supposedly reside. Highlights of this exercise in randomness: Lynch tests out the laugh track at The Big Bang Theory, horrifies the Mad Men ad guys with tales of fast-forwarding through commercials and Slushees her Glee alter ego. The song ends on the line, "There's no place like TV ... except for HBO -- it's not TV."
Nikita moves to Friday nights on The CW this fall, but that's not the only change in store for Season 2.
Although 'shippers will find that "Mikita" is the new reality going into the second season, romance is the last thing on Alex's mind. Over at Division, everything is settling into a new order after last season's upheaval: the always stylish Amanda is in charge, Percy is a little lonely, and Birkhoff has relocated.

The new fall TV lineup is full of trends — fairy tales, manly men, etc.— but there's one we just can't get behind. What's with all the guys sporting long hair and scruffy beards?
Fall Preview: Get scoop on all the new and returning shows
Don't get us wrong: The look works for Sean Bean and his period piece brethren on Game of Thrones. Sadly, we can't say the same about Two and a Half Men's Ashton Kutcher or Chris D'Elia from NBC's Whitney. Even the usually clean-cut Luke Wilson is hopping on the bandwagon on HBO's Enlightened.
