Am I wrong or are there a rather large number of nominees coming from series that have been cancelled? And I mean cancelled for low ratings not - like Will & Grace - running out their string. Stockard Channing even got her nomination for a show that was rather unceremoniously dumped by CBS in December despite having ratings that were better than either of the highly touted shows that replaced it in the time slot.

I am trying to find some pattern of logic. Rightfully Earned / Sentimentality / Political.
