he's done other stuff too, like Strangers with Candy, but TDS and TCR are what he's really known for

as for Barry Manilow, I didn't even know he had his own show. but...come on. Barry over Stephen for an Emmy? I think not. these are awards for television, not music - though I think Colbert's "Charlene (I'm Right Behind You)" would give Manilow a run for his money
Actually, the category was "Best individual performance in a variety show". If Stephen Colbert is a reporter like Bill O'Reilly then he shouldn't have been nominated at all. He should have been nominated for best news show or something.

Barry was justly nominated for the PBS show of his performance of his one-man show in Las Vegas, which CLEARLY qualifies as a variety show.

word. it's satire. Colbert is only acting the part; he actually believes very little of what he says on the show. To act like an asshole every night surely justifies some sort of award!

Bill O'Reilly's been saying that for years.

I just watched them yesterday [thanks tivo)
I loved the Conan skit in the beginning as he went through sets of different shows. Colbert & Stewart were fantastical like usual...
Kinda bummed Larry David or Carrell didnt win, but I actually like Monk & thought he deserved the win..and Hugh Laurie was looking very good..

i thought he meant in real life,
while watching the emmys it made me wonder
if steve carrell leaving the daily show for the office was in good terms..i wanted to see carrell's reaction/face when Daily Show won or when colbert & jon were up there, but i dont remember them showing him.

I would think so, he's been back on the daily show for interviews and stuff?

I'd like to think so, and that all the funny comedians in America (funny, not Dane Cook) are in a secret organization fighting crime and scientology.
