Ben Silverman’s having a good week. First he charms the assembled multitudes at TCA on Monday, getting through his first big press test as co-chair of NBC Entertainment without any scars. Then he wakes up this morning to a bounty of Emmy good news, with comedy series noms for “The Office” and “Ugly Betty,” plus two NBC rookies, “Heroes” and “30 Rock,” flexing some muscle by landing high-profile series noms that could translate into a bigger ratings next season. It could’ve been a Ben trifecta if “The Tudors” had hit big, but, hey, it did get costuming and a few other arty type nods. Congrats Ben.
