Turner scores 21 Primetime Emmy® nominations

Turner is having one of its best years ever in the race for Primetime Emmy® nominations with a total of 21 for TBS, CNN, Cartoon Network and truTV.

Leading the Turner pack is TBS with an amazing 10 nominations for its new slate of hit comedies. TBS's Full Frontal with Samantha Bee scored the most nominations of any Turner program this year, with a total of seven, including Outstanding Variety Talk Series, Outstanding Writing and Outstanding Interactive Program. Full Frontal also earned four nominations for its Not the White House Correspondents' Dinner primetime special, including Outstanding Variety Special. TBS's tally also includes nominations for its hit series Angie Tribeca and American Dad!, as well as for the CONAN in Berlin special.

CNN picked up seven nominations: five for Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown, including Outstanding Information Series or Special, and two for United Shades of America with W. Kamau Bell, including Outstanding Unstructured Reality Program and Outstanding Host for a Nonfiction Program. CNN is also expected to have a big day when the News and Documentary Emmy® nominations are announced later this month.

Cartoon Network, which competes more heavily in the Daytime Emmy® competition, got three Primetime Emmy nominations for Outstanding Short-Form Animated Program, dominating the category with episodes of Adventure Time, Steven Universe and Teen Titans! Go.

Rounding out the list for Turner, truTV picked up its first-ever nomination with a nod for Outstanding Variety Sketch Series for hit show Billy on the Street.
