Kathy Bates

Question: I thought the Emmy nominations were spot on except in the following areas. I love Kathy Bates, but can't stand her in Harry's Law, a show I find to be lazy. Tina Fey and NBC should in no way be proud of 30 Rock's nominations, a show that has been running on fumes since the end of season 3. I don't understand the love for this show anymore. When this show first came out it was a breath of fresh air in the comedy genre. Now it reeks of stale, recycled storylines. It all revolves around Tracy Morgan's character and his stupid antics and Tina Fey's character constantly playing babysitter. For a show that's paced in real time, it amazes me how the only character to have evolved on this series is Baldwin's Jack. I'm also delighted that Cougar Town was allegedly snubbed; I find it to be a dreadful series. Ecstatic about Parks and Recreation, a show that truly deserves to be nominated. Now that I've ranted, I think I'll go to bed. Love reading your column. — MW

Critic's Notebook: The Emmy Nominations

Connie Britton and Kyle Chandler

The Emmy voters are nothing if not creatures of habit, so in a year of very few new breakout hits, it's no surprise that the surprises are far and few between. (For a list of top nominees, go here.)

But there were some doozies — the most startling being the snub for The Closer's Kyra Sedgwick, last year's unexpected winner for drama actress. As the TNT hit enters the beginning of its final stretch, Sedgwick was knocked out by new arrivals Mireille Enos, the haunting star of AMC's controversial The Killing, and Oscar winner Kathy Bates, who carries NBC's quirky sleeper success Harry's Law. (Frontrunner in the drama actress race is unquestionably The Good Wife's Julianna Margulies, as the CBS critics' darling boasts nine nominations, towering above all other network dramas, trailing only HBO behemoths Boardwalk Empire and Game of Thrones).

Leverage: Can Nate Take Down Himself?

Michael Gladis, Leverage

Leverage's Nate Ford has out-conned some very ruthless opponents, but for his next job, he'll have to outsmart himself. Well, sort of.

Summer TV: Get scoop on your favorite returning shows

In Sunday's episode (9/8c, TNT) Nate (Timothy Hutton) and his team target a public relations whiz named Reed Rockwell (Mad Men's Michael Gladis). Rockwell's particular brand of PR involves protecting his clients by sniping at their enemies and sometimes launching full-scale character assassinations. The challenge in taking Rockwell down is that he's a bit of a wizard behind the curtain.

"He works from the shadows and behind the scenes, sort of like Nate," Gladis tells TVGuide.com.... read more
