The Tonight Show With Conan O’Brien has been nominated at this year’s Emmy Awards.
The now defunct NBC show is nominated for “Outstanding Variety, Music or Comedy Series” against The Daily Show With Jon Stewart, The Colbert Report, Saturday Night Live and Real Time With Bill Maher.
Conan tweeted “Congrats to my staff on 4 Emmy nominations. This bodes well for the future of The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien”.
Jay Leno spoke about the nominations for The Tonight Show With Conan O’Brien on his show this week, saying “the big show business news is that the Emmy nominations were announced today… the good news: The Tonight Show got four nominations! The bad news: I didn’t get one of them… remember there’s no ‘me’ in Emmy”.
Saturday Night Live is also nominated in the “Guest Actress in a Comedy Series” category for Betty White and Tina Fey’s appearances on the show.
