The 2013 Emmy Award nominations were announced this morning, and while there is plenty there to complain about, as Emmy nominations typically go, it’s better than most years. There were some deserving drama series left out, but there’s only six slots, and I don’t fault the Academy for the ones chosen.

All the same, it is Emmy nomination day, and I have to give you guys something to grouse about. So how about this: A list of the 25 Best TV Shows that were never nominated for a Best Series Emmy in either the drama or comedy categories.
