"Pundits are constantly wondering how to incorporate the broadcasters back into the Emmys fold," says Michael Schneider. "Just as the Oscars struggle with how to recognize fan-friendly films (and briefly introduced an ill-fated blockbuster category), the Emmys also have seen viewership fall as TV splinters into multiple niche offerings. In radio, songs that continue to get spins months or even years after release are put in a special category, 'recurrents.' Perhaps there’s a way for Emmy to recognize those workhorses — TV’s recurrents. A category where long-running shows get their due could be fun, and give a bit of attention to the SVUs and Grey’s of the world.
