Outstanding Comedy Series
 
The Nominees:
Entourage (HBO)
Family Guy (Fox)
Flight of the Conchords (HBO)
How I Met Your Mother (CBS)
The Office (NBC)
30 Rock (NBC)
Two and a Half Men (CBS)
 
Who Should Win: The Office
Who Will Win: 30 Rock

Since it is always fun to root for an upset, keep a small eye on HBO’s Flight of the Conchords, which was praised to the hilt.  Any forget about Family Guy, How I Met Your Mother and Two and a Half Men. Any chance they have of winning is slim.
