This weekend it's all about the Emmies. Being the elitist anti-populists, we are hoping that critical faves win out over the dreck. For drama, it would be nice if Emmies went to "Mad Men", "Damages", "Breaking Bad" and "The Wire". For comedy, some of the following should be winning winged statues: "Flight of the Conchords", "The Office", "Weeds", "It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia", and "30 Rock".

This is the TV Junkie (weekend) plan: (Tonight) Bill Maher, Project Earth; (Saturday) SNL (we hope Tina Fey/Palin comes back; (Sunday) Emmies, True Blood, Entourage
