Comedy Central Leads Viacom’s 29 Emmy Nominations

by Stuart Winchester, Viacom

Behind raucous talent Amy Schumer and the momentum of an enduring South Park, Comedy Central led a roster of diverse and rich Viacom programming that tallied 29 nominations for the 2016 Emmys.

Comedy Central has become a perennial Emmy standout – last year, the network notched 26 nominations and eight wins for its irreverent work. Nickelodeon, Spike, Logo, MTV, TV Land and BET also earned nominations.

In addition to the recognition of outstanding work from wholly owned Viacom programming, our Paramount TV division earned 14 nominations, 11 for its collaborations with FOX, most notably the spectacular Grease Live special, which drew 10 nominations after totaling more than 12 million viewers during its February airing.

The full list of Viacom nominations is below, along with a look at a few of the properties up for the honors. Some of the clips contain graphic or adult language.

The Emmys air Sunday, Sept. 18 on ABC.
