While the Emmys broadcast was the perfect sleeping pill for FTVLive, it was a big night for fake news.
ACN's (fake network) Will McAvoy (fake anchor) took home the Emmy for best actor in a drama. McAvoy's is of course the role played by Jeff Daniels on HBO’s “Newsroom.”
Also winning an Emmy, "The Colbert Report.” The show won twice, outstanding variety series and outstanding writing for variety series.
Those awards had been owned by "The Daily Show" over the last decade. It was good to see Colbert and his team get some props.
