For Your Consideration: Raising Hope

Modern Family is still an excellent show, and Glee is wonderfully funny albeit inconsistent, but Raising Hope might be the show I'm most pulling for to win at the Emmys. Of course to do that they need to be nominated, and that's where I come in. They were absent from the Golden Globes and the Screen Actors Guild awards, so hopefully they can rally with some well selected episodes (Emmys are based on a single episode for actors, and 6 episodes in total for a series). Don't underestimate the power of picking the right episode.

I wasn't planning to watch RH, but it was on between Glee and Unnamed Will Arnett Project which I seem to recall being excited about and now can scarcely recall. I wasn't even thinking about using it for the first FYC of Emmy season, but when I was catching up last week, the "Baby Monitor" episode had a plot device wherein their baby monitor was picking up another baby monitor's signal and hilarity ensued.

Categories (for now): Best Comedy Series, Best Actor (Lucas Neff), Best Actress (Martha Plimpton), Best Supporting Actor (Garret Dillahunt), Best Writing ("Romeo and Romeo"; "Mongooses"). They have been so inconsistent with Chloris Leachman's character that I'm not going to push her for Supporting Actress. I don't begrudge her a nomination, but c'mon she has 8 Emmys, an Oscar and a Daytime Emmy, I think she'll cope. Although she's better in this than Betty White is in Hot in Cleveland.

We may come back to this after I start filling in categories, but that will do for now.
