2016 Emmy Predictions: Best Variety Series - Sketch and Talk

Best Variety Series - Talk
Will Win - Last Week Tonight with John Oliver

Could Win - The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon or The Late Late Show with James Corden

Should Win - Last Week Tonight with John Oliver or Real Time with Bill Maher

Commentary - With Jon Stewart and Colbert out, this category is going to see a shakeup after almost two decades of dominance. That being said, I think they are going to go with a similar show in Last Week Tonight. It is funny, irreverent, political, and fits right into their mold. However, they could really shake it up and go with a more traditional late night program, with either longtime nominee Jimmy Fallon, or newcomer James Corden.  

Best Variety Series - Sketch
Will Win - Inside Amy Schumer

Could Win- Saturday Night Live or Key and Peele

Should Win- Key and Peele

Commentary - The Emmy voters could give Key and Peele a win as they exit, or they could reward the legendary Saturday Night Live, which had a better season this year. But they like Amy Schumer, they love her show, and yet another strong outing means she will probably win two in a row.
