Inside track: Emmy race for best comedy series

June 28, 2009 |  2:32 pm

For two years in a row "30 Rock" has claimed this category, last year also reaping the most victories ever by a comedy series (seven). Can it finally be beaten? "The Office" prevailed here in 2006. "Family Guy" aims to become the second cartoon series ever nominated in this lineup (after "The Flintsones" in 1961).
