What the Emmy Stars Watch


As TV's big awards show approaches on Sept. 18, we polled past favorites and current nominees on their viewing habits--and guilty pleasures.

ELISABETH MOSS NOMINEE, MAD MEN

Childhood Favorites I was super into old shows: I Love Lucy, The Dick Van Dyke Show, Bob Newhart, The Mary Tyler Moore Show.

Current Must-Sees Friday Night Lights, Breaking Bad. Creator Vince Gilligan is a genius and the nicest man on the planet.

Best Emmy Memory The first time Mad Men won in 2008 was very exciting--we felt like we all did it together.

Dream Gig I've been campaigning to get on Glee as Jane Lynch's niece or someone else.

What's on the DVR Mike & Molly. Melissa McCarthy is so brilliant. And I also love Season 25: Oprah Behind the Scenes.

CHRIS COLFER NOMINEE, GLEE

Childhood Favorites I lived for "TGIF" on ABC: Family Matters, Sabrina the Teenage Witch, Boy Meets World, Step by Step.

Current Must-Sees Nurse Jackie. I love anything where characters are unapologetic and mean and rude. And the History and Travel channels.

Best Emmy Memory Last year was the first time I went. It's not every day you get to dance around with Tina Fey and Betty White.

Dream Gig I would love to guest-star on one of the new AbFab episodes. Jennifer Saunders is one of the few heroes I've ever had.

What's on the DVR When I was younger, if I was going to miss Sabrina I would record hours and hours on our VCR.

MARY TYLER MOORE SEVEN-TIME WINNER

Childhood Favorites Jack Benny, Sid Caesar--he was so brilliantly talented. He could take on almost anything and always add a freshness to it.

Current Must-Sees The Office, Mike & Molly. We watch National Geographic, the History Channel, and Animal Planet.

Best Emmy Memory Every time I won. I have seven ...they need to be polished every seven or eight years.

Dream Gig The Office. Every one of the actors on that show is worth watching.

What's on the DVR I watch everything as it comes on the TV. I think the networks don't give new shows a very long chance to establish themselves.

JOHN SLATTERY NOMINEE, MAD MEN

Childhood Favorites The Late Late Show With Tom Snyder, Saturday Night Live, The Mary Tyler Moore Show, The Odd Couple, The Partridge Family.

Current Must-Sees Eastbound and Down, Parks and Recreation, Breaking Bad, SportsCenter.

Best Emmy Memory I met Chesley Sullenberger in the men's room. …
