Nurse Jackie has been renewed by Showtime for a sixth season. 'Nurse Jackie' stars Edie Falco, who already has one Emmy for the show.
The two drama series each earned 17 nods as Emmy nominations were announced Thursday morning.
The prequel 'The Family Corleone' has been approved by the estate of original author Mario Puzo.
Emmy Award nominations released Thursday tapped Conan O'Brien's short-lived stint on NBC's Tonight Show, as well as a handful of shows from non-broadcast networks.
New season offers few fresh shows, but frugal times may pull in more viewers looking for cheap entertainment.
