Tina Fey's series set backstage at a network comedy show was joined by another NBC Thursday night series as a nominee — "The Office."
The Fox animated series "Family Guy" is among the seven best comedy nominees. CBS' "How I Met Your Mother" is the fourth broadcast network series to earn a nomination.
Two HBO series will compete for the prize: the quirky "Flight of the Conchords" and the Hollywood series "Entourage."
"Weeds" was another nominee. Mary-Louise Parker stars as a drug dealer in the Showtime series.
