Late Night at the Emmys: Can Anyone Dethrone Stewart?

Since 2003, The Daily Show has alway won Best Variety, Comedy, or Musical Series, so people are always wondering if it will win next year.  But unlike other shows that keep winning awards every year, The Daily Show is repeatedly the best late night show.

The other nominees include The Colbert Report, Conan, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Real Time with Bill Maher, and Saturday Night Live.

The Colbert Report is the only show I think that is on Jon Stewart’s level of comedy, and it is the most likely show that could top Stewart.

As for the other shows, well, Conan was more nominated because of his past demise at NBC, Fallon is funny, but it’s unlikely that the new kid on the street will win, and Bill Maher doesn’t appeal to mainstream audiences as much as the other nominees.

As for Saturday Night Live, well, it’s more or less nominated for its past reputation.  The show can still have its moments of greatness, but it is not strong enough to gather a win.
