Where to Find the New Emmy Winners on TV? Glad You Asked...
September 1, 2010  | By David Bianculli
 
If you watched the Emmys, or read the list of winners afterward, you may well have encountered an unfamiliar name or show and asked yourself, "Where can I FIND these programs?" Well, don't ask yourself. Ask ME, because here comes a handy-dandy list...

temple-grandin-danes_l.jpgStarting with the Emmy-winning movies and miniseries, there are no scheduled repeat telecasts right now for HBO's Temple Grandin or The Pacific.

But Temple Grandin, the most honored TV show at this year's Emmys, was released two weeks ago on video. So you can -- and, believe me, you SHOULD -- buy it -- and watch Claire Danes' amazing performance, and those of David Strathairn and Julia Ormond (all Emmy winners, along with awards for the show for direction and as outstanding TV movie) by clicking HERE.

The Pacific, the winner for outstanding miniseries, will be released on DVD Nov. 2, and you can pre-order it HERE.

As for the same network's You Don't Know Jack, which won for writing and for actor Al Pacino as Dr. Jack Kevorkian, it can be seen next week on two occasions: Tuesday, Sept. 7, at 11 p.m. ET, and Sunday, Sept. 12, at 4:45 p.m. ET, both on the HBO-S network.

Now for the regular series. Here's where, and when, to catch this year's winners:

mad-men-09-N01.jpg

Mad Men, AMC (Won for Outstanding Drama, and Writing for a Drama) -- There's a repeat of the current episode on AMC this Friday, Sept. 3, at 9:15 a.m. ET. The next new episode airs in the show's regular Sunday night time slot, Sept. 5 at 10 -- one of the few series to run first-run programming on Labor Day weekend.

Modern Family, ABC (Outstanding Comedy, Writing for a Comedy, Supporting Actor) -- This week's episode is pre-empted by ABC's CMA Music Festival special. But next Wednesday, Sept. 8, at 9 ET, Emmy winner Eric Stonestreet and the rest of the gang will be back, albeit in a summer rerun.

Glee, Fox (Supporting Actress in a Comedy; Guest Actor, Comedy; Director, Comedy) -- Next Tuesday, Sept. 7, Fox presents another prime-time doubleheader. Supporting Actress winner Jane Lynch is is both, but pay special attention to the 9 p.m. ET repeat -- that's the one featuring Emmy-winner Neil Patrick Harris as Will's old glee-club rival.

breaking-bad-10-My02.jpg

Breaking Bad, AMC (Actor, Drama; Supporting Actor, Drama) -- Watch Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul work their respective Emmy-winning magic on a rerun, Monday, Sept. 6, at 9:30 p.m. ET.

Dexter, Showtime (Guest Actor, Drama; Director, Drama) -- Sunday night at 9 ET, there's a repeat of one of the episodes featuring guest actor Emmy-winner John Lithgow, as the Trinity Killer. And to see it, tune in to Showtime, even though Lithgow mistakenly thanked HBO during his original acceptance speech.

Saturday Night Live, NBC (Guest Actress, Comedy) -- Betty White isn't the guest host on this week's rerun, but Tina Fey is, and Justin Bieber is the musical guest. Saturday, Sept. 4, at 11:29 p.m. ET.

The Big Bang Theory, CBS (Actor, Comedy) -- Jim Parsons explains it all for you, in next week's rerun: Monday, Sept. 7, at 9:30 p.m. ET.

Nurse Jackie, Showtime (Actress, Comedy) -- Showtime doesn't have any reruns scheduled currently, but DirecTV's 101 Network does. If you subscribe to that satellite service, tune to that channel Wednesday at 10 p.m. ET, or about 100 other times during the week, to see Edie Falco in her very funny "I'm not funny" performance.

The Closer, TNT (Actress, Drama) -- Kyra Sedgwick's next sassy turn as Brenda is Monday, Sept. 6, at 9 p.m. ET -- and even though it's Labor Day, it's an original episode, which has Brenda getting ready for her job interview for her possible promotion as Chief of Police.

Top Chef, Bravo (Reality Series) -- This first-time winner can be seen at 10 p.m. ET Wednesdays. This week's episode has an outer-space theme and features astronaut Buzz Aldrin, while next week's episode, the start of this season's two-part finale, takes place in Singapore.

The Good Wife, CBS (Supporting Actress, Drama) -- Tune in next Tuesday, Sept. 7, at 10 p.m. ET to see Archie Punjabi's attention-stealing role as a tough, resourceful private eye.

Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, NBC (Guest Actress, Drama) -- Ann-Margret won for her guest performance here, which NBC has yet to reschedule. But if you want to catch the series anyway, it airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET.

The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, Comedy Central (Writing, Variety/Music/Comedy Special) - Weeknights at 11 p.m. ET, and at several rerun points during the day, you can catch installments of this still-brilliant series, which deserves every Emmy it gets. And this show, right now, ISN'T in reruns. Yes, it is, it turns out. But hey, funny is funny, even if, in my case, wrong is wrong...

Unfortunately, The Daily Show is on a 10 day hiatus.

[That IS unfortunate, since I saw a timely episode on Monday. But now I realize, that was a midday repeat from the previous week. Whoops. I'll correct in the text. Thanks! -- David B.]

Actually, David, The Daily Show is in reruns this week. (As is Colbert.)

NBC won virtually nothing at this year's Emmy's, and one small insight into why is that starting time for SNL, 11:29 pm. In fact, it's 11:29:30 pm. The brain-dead trust at NBC-Universal seems way more concerned with style over substance across their entire platform of networks and cable channels.

If you doubt it, spend a few hours - spread your sampling out across a day or two - and see what they've done to their latest conquest, The Weather Channel, since taking over. An elegantly simple idea, cluttered up with busy graphics and junk reports from "correspondents", where there used to be a simple wheel of weather reports from people who generally knew what they were talking about.

NBC deserves to be where it is, in sixth place.

I very rarely have a good thing to say about Time Warner Cable here in NYC.

Save for Prime Time on Demand. You are able to access Channel 1994 with the old remote and watch, at your leisure, the following:

AMC: Rubicon & Mad Men
NBC: Community, 30 Rock, Friday Night Lights (and several others)
Bravo: Top Chef (& others)
FX: Louis & Rescue Me
USA: Burn Notice, Covert Affairs, Psych, Royal Pains & White Collar

AMC, for instance, will have every back episode of Rubicon and this season's Mad Men, and post the new episode within a few days.

If anyone out there is not aware of this feature, it's there & it's free (well, that's the least they can offer me for $80 per month with no Showtime or HBO). It's a great way to catch up on your favorites, or see a show you've never watched. We're very into "Louie" right now, as we've never watched it in the past.

I have never heard of, let alone seen, Breaking Bad. However, my tv listings has Dirty Harry on at 9:30 on Labor Day.

[You're right. AMC changed its schedule --and I can't find Breaking Bad at any time in the next two weeks. I suggest renting, or buying, the DVD... -- David B.]
