'Griffin' looks to dethrone 'Makeover'

This year’s outstanding reality program nominees must be experiencing a case of deja vu.

All five candidates are unchanged from last year. And two of the nominees — ABC’s “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” and Showtime’s “Penn & Teller: Bullshit!” — have been up for the award every year since this specific category was created in 2004.

In other words, the nominees — which also include “Antiques Roadshow,” “Dog Whisperer” and “Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List” — all clearly have their fans at the TV Academy.

The show to beat remains “Extreme Makeover,” which won its second consecutive Emmy in the category last year. With the competition unchanged, it’s very possible the result will remain unchanged as well.

The dark horse could be Bravo’s “Kathy Griffin,” which garnered attention for several episodes that dealt with the death of Griffin’s father and how she coped with the news.
