2013 Emmy Nomination Predictions: Best Variety Series

2013 Nomination Predictions
1. The Daily Show with Jon Stewart
2. The Colbert Report
3. Jimmy Kimmel Live!
4. Saturday Night Live
5. Late Night with Jimmy Fallon
6. Real Time with Bill Maher

Other Contenders - Conan, Late Show with David Letterman, Portlandia, Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, Chelsea Lately, Key and Peele, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno

Commentary - Will The Daily Show go for its eleventh in a row? As much as I love the daily show, I am kind of hoping that this is the year that someone takes the crown. It could be The Colbert Report which always looks like the the obvious second choice, but two late night guys Jimmy Fallon and Jimmy Kimmel are both doing great stuff on their late night programs and could be dark horses. While SNL has had a pretty bad season, I still think it can get in, because it's so popular. Finally, winless Bill Maher will probably contend again, although I think he will go yet another year with an Emmy. There are some contenders that hope to upset the applecart. Conan has gotten in before, and clearly has some support. Portlandia is the quirkiest and one of the buzziest projects of the bunch, and David Letterman is a late night legend. But all three of them have to oversome some pretty big odds to make the list of six.
