Inside track: Emmy race for best reality/competition show

June 19, 2010 |  3:44 pm
Amazing Race

"The Amazing Race"
"American Idol"
"America's Next Top Model"
"Celebrity Apprentice"
"Dancing with the Stars"
"Project Runway"
"So You Think You Can Dance"
"Top Chef"

SPOTLIGHT: For seven years, "Amazing Race" has zoomed past TV's top-rated show in this awards race. Now Emmy-watchers wonder: Can "American Idol" ever catch up? Will the exit of Simon Cowell trip up its Emmy hopes? Will "Dancing with the Stars" be the show that finally trots ahead?

I'd love to see "American Idol" win, but I doubt the Emmys would award the show's lowest-ranked season since Season 3 (even though it topped the competition every week, ratings slid downwards.)

I think this will still be an "Amazing Race" year. Their season was pretty darn big, even though "Dancing With the Stars" had their most star-studded season yet.

It's a race between 'Race', 'Dancing', and 'Idol', but I think 'Race' will take the gold again.

Production on Amazing Race is so incredible that nobody will ever win unless they retire from the race and not submit themselves which frankly, they should have / could have done already unless they want every new member from the group that comes each year to get an Emmy...After seven years 90% of that crew must have an Emmy already, let it go.

As for the rest of the list, does somebody force predictions to include a Long Shot list? And what's so bad about writing "Ass"?

Is there even a point to this post? Envelope please, TAR wins, done, NEXT!
