Outstanding Comedy Series

Yay Bob Newhart! Apparently, Tina Fey is going to kiss him. And, he gives a slightly rambling speech about his first foray into television - a Variety show 48 years ago. But, he's Bob Newhart, so I'll forgive him. Slight

30 Rock
Family Guy
Flight of the Conchord
How I Met Your Mother
The Office

30 Rock wins! And, Tina Fey accepts on behalf of the show. She thanks everyone involved with the show. Thanks the folks at NBC for keeping them "on the air even though they are so much more expensive than a talk show." Hah!

And, the interactive award for Best Breakthrough is: Bill when he first meets Sookie (True Blood). Okay, that was weird. They start to announce it. Show a clip and then don't follow up with the name of the winner for like 15 seconds. Odd.

There have been a couple of these technical hiccups throughout the telecast. Otherwise, it's been pretty smooth sailing, even though NPH disappeared for much of the second half of the show. Oh, Neil Patrick Harris, how you make the tv a happier place.
