On this week’s edition of the Deadline Podcast series, TV Talk,  Deadline’s television critic Dominic Patten and Awards columnist Pete Hammond take on network broadcast tv’s Emmy dilemna.

Although the Television Academy heavily relies on fees from the four broadcast networks (ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX) who share the annual Primetime Emmy telecast on a rotating wheel, it is each of those networks that benefit the least from Emmy attention in the major marquee categories of  Drama, Comedy, Limited Series, and other categories which almost exclusively cater to pay cable networks like HBO or streamers like Netflix, Apple, Hulu, Amazon and others who have simply – and successfully – crashed and taken over bragging rights for TV’s most valued award which when the wheel with rights to telecast the Emmys was originally created, the Primetime Emmys was dominated by nominees and winners from those TV networks.

My how times have changed.For instance in Drama Series only NBC’s This Is Us in recent years has been able to crack the code.

Comedy is not much better, and you can forget about Limited Series and TV Movie , both once dominated by the nets. Can it ever swing back in time where procedurals are the main deal on Broadcast, the golden era of TV comedy is in the rear view mirror (at least comedies on broadcast networks)?
