This brings the grand total of Primetime Emmy nominations for the "The Daily Show" to 40.

"The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" is also a two-time winner of the prestigious Peabody(R) Award for Excellence in Broadcasting.

"The Colbert Report," with Stephen Colbert assuming a dismissive, Bill O'Reilly-like persona while commenting on the issues of the day, received three Emmy Award nominations: Outstanding Variety, Music Or Comedy Series, Outstanding Writing For A Variety, Music Or Comedy Series, a category in which it won its first Emmy in 2008, and director Jim Hoskinson was cited for Outstanding Directing For A Variety, Music Or Comedy Series. The show has been nominated in each of these categories for six consecutive years and its total number of nominations now stands at 24. The show has also been honored with the prestigious Peabody(R) Award for Excellence in Broadcasting.

Four-time Emmy-winner "South Park," the adult animation phenomenon, home to Kyle, Stan, Kenny and Cartman, received its eleventh Emmy nomination for Outstanding Animated Program, nominated for "Crack Baby Athletic Association."

In its return to original episodes after approximately an eight-year break, "Futurama" earned a nomination for Outstanding Animated Program for the episode "The Late Philip J.

The series previously aired for five seasons on Fox (1999 to 2003) earning four Emmy(R) nominations for Outstanding Animated Program, taking home the Emmy in 2002.

"Night of Too Many Stars: An Overbooked Benefit for Autism Education" was nominated for Outstanding Writing For A Variety, Music Or Comedy Special. This marks the first Emmy nomination for the biennial/bi-coastal event which raises funds to help ease the severe shortage of effective schools and education programs for autistic children and adults. Jon Stewart hosted the event, an evening filled with live performances and sketches from a roster of comedy all-stars.

The 63rd Primetime Emmy Awards will be presented in two ceremonies. The first, primarily for creative arts categories, will take place on Saturday, September 10, while the balance of the Emmys, primarily for the performing arts, will be announced before a black-tie audience during a primetime telecast (NBC) on Sunday, September 18 at the NOKIA Theatre L.A.
