2015 Daytime Emmy Predictions: Best Game Show, Entertainment News Show, Morning Show, and Game Show Host

Best Game Show
Will Win - Jeopardy!
Should Win - Jeopardy!
Could Win - Family Feud
Commentary - As Alex Trebek ends his long run on the show, I think it will continue to rack up as many honors as possible. Reward it now, because once he is gone, who knows the direction the show will take. Plus, it is the king of all game shows, and is a huge favorite.

Best Entertainment News Show
Will Win - Entertainment Tonight
Should Win - Entertainment Tonight
Could Win - Extra or Access Hollywood
Commentary - Not really a fan of any of these, but Entertainment Tonight is a popular and long-running show that is not quite as ridiculous as some of its competitors, and has a respectability (not much a little bit) that I think helps it get across the finish line.

Best Morning Show
Will Win - CBS Sunday Morning
Should Win - CBS Sunday Morning
Could Win - Good Morning America or Today
Commentary - While Good Morning America and Today have steered more towards entertaining than informing the wonderful CBS Sunday Morning has done a brilliant job of balancing out entertainment and great news and interest stories. it is the reigning champion in this category, and is, in my humble opinion, miles above its competition.

Best Game Show Host
Will Win - Steve Harvey "Family Feud"
Should Win - Steve Harvey "Family Feud"
Could Win - Todd Newton "Family Game Night" or Craig Ferguson "Celebrity Name Game"
Commentary -  Todd Newton has a lot of fun, and Craig Ferguson could make up for years of being ignored by the Primetime folks. But Steve Harvey is the king of Daytime television at this point, rack up some awards last year, and is hilarious on Family Feud. I think he wins here.
