PBS tops Emmy news noms with 41

Eye 2nd; Fox gets shut out

NEW YORK — PBS on Monday reaped a leading 41 news and documentary Emmys nominations.

Last year the pubcaster also took first place with 26, the same number that second-place CBS took this year.

ABC came in third place with 19. Halfway down the list, NBC took in 10.

PBS’ Emmy magnets this year were science skein “Nova” — with five nominations — and news/doc-driven “Frontline” with four.

For the commercial broadcasters, the anchors carried the day. CBS “Evening News With Dan Rather” chalked up seven noms. “NBC Nightly News” was tops at the Peacock with five, equaled by ABC’s “World News Tonight With Peter Jennings.”

With two nods to “Nightline,” the formerly embattled ABC skein must feel some vindication.

In an upset on the cable side, HBO drew 10 nominations, two more than its AOL Time Warner sibling CNN. CNBC outscored its sibling MSNBC five to one.

Fox News walked away empty-handed.

Winner will be presented at a ceremony on Sept. 10 at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York City.
