    Remember the new rule! Everyone needs to vote for either The Big Bang Theory, One Day at a Time, Roseanne or Will & Grace.

    Seems simple
    Atlanta(x2)
    Maisel Pilot
    Silicon Valley(x2)
    One Day At A Time or W&G for the laugh track spot. Leaning towards ODAAT, Fryman was literally nommed a few years ago in this category for How I Met Your Mother. On the other hand, Burrows despite his track record hasn't been nominated in 13 years.

    I want to lean to W&G but when you consider the person who got the new rule to happen is TBBT's main (and never-nominated) director...

    Not Yet is a great episode, I hope it gets the multicam slot.The Will & Grace episode is also fantastic. The Big Bang Theory wedding episode was good but not as strong as the other two.

    I hope Maisel gets two spots. the pilot is of course fantastic but Mrs. X At The Gaslight is for me their strongest episode

    Black-ish's Juneteeth deserves to be nominated here as well but the show can't seem to break out in the writing/directing slot

    This is the reason the rule was put in place (and what an asshole ) but I don't think it means it will actually pan out like he hopes.. I mean the guy forgot about the fact that he would be competing with James Burrows for an infinitely more popular show.

    Atlanta x2
    Maisel Pilot
    Will & Grace
    Silicon Valley (Mike Judge)
    Barry (going with the Alec Berg episode)

    ... is how I see it.

    Hader could get nominated, the GLOW pilot could easily make it in, as could Curb.

    For HBO, my guess is one spot each for Silicon Valley and Barry. And with Barry, I'd go with Alec Berg.

    Not sure about GLOW, but the rest makes perfect sense.

    I think the GLOW pilot makes some sense. The Maisel pilot is almost a lock, too.
