The Prime Time Emmy Nominations 8:30 a.m.
They will be announced this morning, so scan your websites and your dial, including E! and the network morning shows, for the news. I think Jon Hamm, Edie Falco, Alec Baldwin, Tina Fey, “Modern Family,’’ “The Good Wife,’’ and “Mad Men’’ can relax. Who else would I like to see on the list? Here are just a few of the deserving but far from guaranteed actors and shows: Timothy Olyphant (pictured) and “Justified,’’ Wendell Pierce and “Treme,’’ Peter Dinklage and “Game of Thrones,’’ “Parks and Recreation,’’ Ray Romano and “Men of a Certain Age,’’ Irrfan Khan from “In Treatment,’’ and Joel Kinnaman from “The Killing.’’ Also, I do hope that the great “Shameless’’ comes away with a bunch o’ nods.
The Green Room With Paul Provenza 11 p.m., Showtime
This roundtable talk show actually seems to get comics to let go of the prepackaged material they usually deliver on “The Tonight Show,’’ on Twitter, and in their stand-up acts. Group dynamics and a live audience will do that. The second season begins tonight with guests Ray Romano, Garry Shandling, Judd Apatow, and Marc Maron. Coming later in the season: Kathy Griffin, Lewis Black, Margaret Cho, Richard Lewis, and Tommy Chong.
