Also on Sunday: Colbert Hosts the Emmys

ColbertEmmysStephen Colbert hosts The 69th Primetime Emmy Awards (CBS, 8 p.m.). Oddly, “Westworld” and “Saturday Night Live” come into the competition with the most nominations — 22 each and so far they’ve each won five at the Creative Arts Emmys — “Stranger Things” also got five so far. HBO again has the most nominations with 111, but Netflix isn’t far behind with 91. Broadcast networks have pretty much taken themselves out of the running, which makes you wonder how much longer they’ll keep broadcasting it until it moves to one of the more winning cable networks.
