EMMY AWARDFor those who haven't seen Fox’s comedic musical TV show, “Glee,” you might want take note. It grabbed top honors with 19 nominations for this year’s Emmy Awards, which Jimmy Fallon hosts Aug. 29.
 
ABC’s “Modern Family” ran a close second with 15 Emmy nods and will compete with "Glee" for “Outstanding Comedy Series." The two newcomers will face tough competition from NBC's “The Office" and "30 Rock,"  Showtime's “Nurse Jackie, and HBO's “Curb Your Enthusiasm."
 
CBS’s first-run show, "The Good Wife," competes for top honors among cable stalwarts that include AMC's “Breaking Bad,” Showtime's “Dexter,” and HBO's “Mad Men“ and "True Blood," as well as ABC’s “Lost.”
 
The three broadcast newcomers’ signal that broadcast television -- dominated for years by cable entries -- hasn’t lost its moxie. However, HBO garnered the most total nominations (101) for the 10th straight year, outranking other broadcast contenders, ABC (63 nominations) and CBS (57 nominations).
 
NBC’s “The Tonight Show With Conan O'Brien," no longer airing due to much-publicized late-night politics, earned a nomination, perhaps sending NBC a message as “The Tonight With Jay Leno" went unnoticed. Ironically, NBC, which fell to third this year for overall nominations with 48, will broadcast this year’s show.

Last year, NBC received the highest number of nominations (67) and also won more awards (16) than its broadcast rivals.
