"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.

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 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.
