Because this is what happens when you move the show from a Sunday to a Monday: We can't get to it until Friday. So, yes. I'm fully aware that nobody reads this thing anyway. But commenting on something that happened four days ago? That's taking our version of pathetic to a new level.
I mean, what is this? 2003?

The 63rd annual Primetime Emmy Awards are set for Sunday. While other people who may or may not blog for this particular newspaper seem to love to write about things they have no business writing about, I feel it imperative to offer a quick rundown of what may come on Sunday. I mean, come on. TV is in this blog's title twice. How could I not talk about the Emmys?
