I do believe this is it for my Year-End Best-Of (YEBO) lists. And this one is TV! What always makes this one special is that Katie and I work on it together. Maybe down the line when he's old enough, Nathan will join in the fun, as well.
- Dramatic Acting - Timothy Olyphant, "Marshal Raylan Givens," Justified
- Comedic Acting - Mayim Bialik, "Amy Farrah Fowler," The Big Bang Theory
- Dramatic One-Two Punch - Alex O'Loughlin & Scott Caan, "Cmdr. Steve McGarrett & Danny 'Danno' Williams," Hawaii Five-0. Second straight year. Well deserved as they get better together with each passing year.
- Comedic One-Two Punch - Mark-Paul Gosselaar & Breckin Meyer, "Peter Bash & Jared Franklin," Franklin & Bash
- Dramatic Ensemble - Scandal
- Comedic Ensemble - Parks and Recreation
- Male Comeback - Scott Foley, "Cmdr. Jake Ballard," Scandal
- Female Comeback - none that we could think of at the moment
- Recurring Guest Role - Bill Brochtrup, "Dr. Joe Bowman," Major Crimes
- One-Time Guest Appearance - James Saito, "David Toriyama," Hawaii Five-0 (season 4, episode 10 - "Ho'onani Makuakane")
- Dark Alley Award - Jason Beghe, "Det. Hank Voight," Chicago Fire
- Best Drama - (tie) Rizzoli & Isles and Franklin & Bash. Both are shows that we look forward to watching each week and miss when they're not on.
- Best Comedy - Men at Work
- Best Late Night Talk Show - Late Night with Jimmy Fallon
- Most Overstayed Welcome - How I Met Your Mother. I don't think anyone involved in this show cares anymore. Not even NPH. I think they all show up just to collect a paycheck.
- Lost in Left Field - Castle. While we still watch it, it just doesn't feel the same this season. Kinda all over the place with the romance and the brief FBI stint. This is not saying that it can't quickly right its course.
- Most Surprising (In a Good Way) - The Millers. Katie really loves this show.
- Second Chancer - Nothing this season. We tend to nix anything we don't care about.
- Half Cocked - King & Maxwell. This is a new award for a show that is not given enough of a chance, hence the network goes off "half cocked" and cancels it. And this show not only had Jon Tenney and Ryan Hurst starring, but also made me enjoy Rebecca Romijn again.
- Best Network - CBS has the most shows we watch. I suppose.
- Worst Network - All of them for being so quick to kill shows and for not giving enough emphasis to half-hour comedies, of which we new parents desperately want more. Hour-long shows can be such a time suck. We can't stay awake that long.
