    I agree, the Emmys is garbage. Parks And Recreation should NOT be there. From day one this show was horrible!!! And I love Matt LeBlanc but it has only had 7 episodes and barely anybody has seen it. I hear he is very good though. ALSO, Jon Cryer should Not be in the supporting part. He should be Lead and is the reason that 2.5 is consistently great. Their just missing too many shows that could take the place of many shows up there. The Emmys kind of have it wrong.
