Variety Series: Music or Comedy
Nominees: "The Colbert Report"; "Conan"; "The Daily Show With Jon Stewart"; "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon"; "Real Time With Bill Maher"; "Saturday Night Live."
Who will win: "The Daily Show" has won this category approximately 37 times. For good reason.
Who should win: I would say "Conan," just because all he went through. But his TBS venture is not what I would call, um, good. Instead, "Jimmy Fallon" deserves it. It has grown from humdrum to inventive and must-see.
