Survivor, American High, Bands on the Run, Road Rules get Emmy nods.

Survivor, American High, Bands on the Run, Road Rules get Emmy nods.
The Emmy nominations were announced this morning, and four true (at least, by my definition) reality TV shows were nominated. The new categories seem odd, at best, especially when looking at the other shows that American High is up against; could they be more different? (And how Road Rules got nominated but shows like The Mole did not is baffling.) Anyway, the nominees:

non-fiction program–reality

  • American High (FOX)
  • The Awful Truth with Michael Moore (Bravo)
  • The E! True Hollywood Story (E!)
  • Taxicab Confessions (HBO)
  • Trauma Life in the ER (TLC)

non-fiction program–special class

  • Bands on the Run (VH1)
  • Eco-Challenge Borneo (USA)
  • Junkyard Wars (TLC)
  • Road Rules Maximum Velocity Tour (MTV)
  • Survivor (CBS)
