I haven't posted about TV on here for a while, mostly because (a) it's summer and (b) I haven't been watching any TV besides whatever my roommates are watching when I stroll through the living room. But this news merits some sort of outrage, right? The LA Times is reporting speculation from some of the Emmy judges that the likes of Grey's Anatomy, 24 and Heroes are set for nominations, while Lost, The Wire and Friday Night Lights will probably get snubbed.

I like all those shows, but Grey's and 24 just finished awful seasons, and everyone knows Heroes is just Lost for 5th graders. (The Sopranos and House are expected to get the other drama nods.)

Meanwhile, the comedy race seems a bit more justified, with The Office, 30 Rock, Ugly Betty, Entourage and Two and a Half Men in the race. The main injustice here is the exclusion of Weeds, which, while not as laugh-out-loud funny as NBC's best, had possibly the best season of any comedy on TV.

After the jump, I'll tell you which shows really deserve a nomination. Thanks to PopWatch for the link.

Drama:

•Lost. Would you expect anything less from me?

•Friday Night Lights. This show is more of a soap opera than a sports drama, but its expert display of human emotion deserves as much praise as TV watchers can muster.

•The Wire. Honestly, I haven't seen the most recent season of this HBO cop drama, but I'm willing to trust basically every reliable critic in the business, especially considering Season 1 was first-rate. This is one I can't wait to catch up on.

•Heroes. Though this first season was highly uneven, it presented a few of the year's most thrilling and tear-jerking dramatic moments. If it didn't get picked, I wouldn't cry foul. But when it inevitably does get selected, it will be because of fine episodes like "Company Man."

I'm gonna plead the fifth for my fifth selection. I'd like to say Rescue Me, Rome, Dexter or something else from cable, but I simply haven't seen that stuff. Perhaps The Sopranos deserves a final bow. I just don't feel comfortable doling out a nomination to any of the other dramas I've seen. Boston Legal is too cutesy. Brothers and Sisters is too Hallmark. Hugh Laurie is great, but that doesn't mean House deserves a nod. In retrospect, Nip/Tuck was kind of awful last year. Everybody says Battlestar Galactica is incredible, but I can't see them doing a geeky double-dip with that and Heroes.

Comedy:

•The Office. Duh.

•30 Rock. And... duh.

•Weeds. As I mentioned above, this isn't necessarily laugh-out-loud programming, but it's some of the most entertaining storytelling on TV. And its season-ending cliffhanger was second only to Lost in sheer jaw-dropping wonder.

•Entourage. All the buzz suggests this current season has gone sour, but last year's Hollywood exploits deserve a nod.

Again, I'm not sure I can make a fifth pick. I haven't seen Ugly Betty or Extras, but they seem like they would be reasonable choices. Scrubs and My Name Is Earl are decent, but they just don't do it for me. Desperate Housewives is very hot-and-cold. And I haven't spent even a minute with anything on CBS.

So what do you folks think deserves a nod?
