'30 Rock' breaks comedy record at Emmy nominations

July 17, 2008 |  6:57 am

By scoring 17 nominations today, "30 Rock" set a record for most bids among comedy series. Previous champ: "The Larry Sanders Show" (16 in 1997). Mind you, that's not the biggest score among series. "NYPD Blue" pulled that off in 1994 with 26 nods.

Best drama series nominee "Mad Men" scored 16. "Pushing Daisies" pushed through for 12 but didn't get nommed for best comedy!
