As the 2013 Primetime Emmy nominations are announced, we’d like to give big congratulations to the brainchildren behind Viacom’s Emmy-nominated programs… and this year there were many.

Comedy Central, for one, is on Emmy-nomination fire, with a record-breaking 18 nominations that span The Daily Show (now a 50-time Emmy nominee, 18-time winner), The Colbert Report, South Park, Workaholics, and Key & Peele, as well as its multi-platform efforts and pro-social initiative that drove “Night of Too Many Stars.”

Congrats to Comedy Central, as well as to Nickelodeon and TV Land for representing us with their sharp mix of programming. We’re proud and thrilled to see all your hard work recognized, and cannot wait to see what Jon and Stephen will brew up for the next Emmy awards show.
