Weeds (Showtime)
The Office (NBC)
How I Met Your Mother (CBS)
30 Rock (NBC)
Entourage (HBO)
Family Guy (Fox)
Flight of the Conchords (HBO)
SURPRISE OMISSIONS: Two and a Half Men maybe. Surprising to see Family Guy.

Alec Baldwin, 30 Rock (NBC)
Tony Shalhoub, Monk (USA Network)
Charlie Sheen, Two and a Half Men (CBS)
Steve Carell, The Office (NBC)
Jermaine Clement, Flight of the Conchords (HBO)
Jim Parsons, The Big Bang Theory (CBS)
SURPRISE OMISSIONS: No one really...maybe David Duchovny. Surprised that Clement got nominated, though.

OUTSTANDING LEAD COMEDY ACTRESS
Sarah Silverman, The Sarah Silverman Program (Comedy Central)
Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Old Christine (CBS)
Christina Applegate, Samantha Who? (ABC)
Mary-Louise Parker, Weeds (Showtime)
Tina Fey, 30 Rock (NBC)
Toni Collette, United States of Tara (Showtime)

Rainn Wilson, The Office (NBC)
Neil Patrick Harris, How I Met Your Mother (CBS)

Kristin Chenoweth, Pushing Daisies (ABC)
Jane Krakowski, 30 Rock (NBC)
Amy Poehler, SNL (NBC)
Kristin Wiig, SNL (NBC)

OUTSTANDING DRAMA SERIES
Lost (ABC)
House (Fox)
Damages (FX)
Big Love (HBO)
Mad Men (AMC)
Dexter (Showtime)

Simon Baker, The Mentalist (CBS)
Bryan Cranston, Breaking Bad (AMC)
Gabriel Bryne, In Treatment (HBO)
Michael C. Hall, Dexter (Showtime)

Sally Field, Brothers & Sisters (ABC)
Kyra Sedgwick, The Closer (TNT)
Mariska Hargitay, Law & Order: SVU (NBC)

Sandra Oh, Grey's Anatomy (ABC)
Hope Davis, In Treatment (HBO)
Chandra Wilson, Grey's Anatomy (ABC)

Married...with Children is now getting marathon treatment on Spike TV! Starting tomorrow until at least the end of August, Spike TV will air Married...with Children marathons every Friday from 9am-7pm ET/PT! Yes, 10 hours of Bundy fun! Spike TV will still air the show weekdays 9-11am and Sunday mornings as well.
Still no word if it will pop-up again on sister network TV Land, as it did very well for them there. We do have some sister network news though and it is sort of regarding Married...with Children. Viacom-owned MTV Tr3s (Spanish language network) is now airing a show the entire family can enjoy -- a Columbian remake of Married... with Children. Viewers will be engaged by the hilarious situations the Rocha (Bundy) family gets themselves into! The show is called Casado Con Hijos and airs weekdays at 4PM & 7PM ET/PT on MTV Tr3s with English subtitles! It aired from 2004-06 in Columbia on Caracol TV. Al Bundy is now Paco Rocha! The only same names we know are Kelly and Jefferson D'Arcy.
