Seth Meyers hosts the 66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards (6 p.m., NBC/Ch. 5), and I’m rooting for him to do well in what is generally a thankless job.
As for the awards themselves, don’t take them too seriously. I know they’re supposed to be hugely prestigious, but they are less legit this year than usual because of all the category-shopping that went on - like "Orange Is the New Black" nominated itself as a comedy because it couldn’t possibly win as a drama. Or "True Crime" nominating itself as a series because it has a better shot than than as a miniseries.
