Other Contenders - Veep and Transparent are back, as is Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and Silicon Valley most likely. That leaves three slots at least, and Louie and Parks & Rec are out. Modern Family is still on my list for now, but it has been slowly losing voters and nominations over the years, and some strong contenders could watch it go away, kind of like The Big Bang Theory did last year (One of those contenders who could benefit from the at least two available slots. I personally think that black-ish should be and will be in there, with Master of None and Mozart in the Jungle as the next two in line. But streaming has some strong shows out there like Casual, Catastrophe, Love, Wet Hot American Summer, The Mindy Project, You Me Her, Lady Dynamite, Grace and Frankie, The Ranch, Fuller House, and Red Oaks. Despite streaming making huge grounds, that doesn't eliminate old-school, good old-fashioned television. Cable has a plethora of shows in the mix including: Girls, Broad City, You're the Worst, Angie Tribeca, House of Lies, Please Like Me, Getting On, Shameless, Playing House, Blunt Talk, Togetherness, Younger, Teachers, Baskets, Ballers, Man Seeking Woman, Married, The Detour, Survivor's Remorse, and The Jim Gaffigan Show. Finally, broadcast networks may not have had the best luck with the Emmys lately, but that hasn't stopped them from trying: Mom, The Last Man on Earth, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Jane the Virgin, New Girl, The Odd Couple, Mike & Molly, 2 Broke Girls, Vicious, The Real O'Neals, Superstore, Scream Queens, The Middle, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Fresh Off the Boat, The Carmichael Show, Grandfathered, and The Grinder.
