‘SNL,’ ‘Westworld’ lead 2017 Emmy nominations with 22 each

LOS ANGELES — HBO’s “Westworld” and NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” tied for the most nominations for the 2017 Emmy Awards, earning the most with 22 each.

HBO’s drama scored with viewers, averaging 12 million per episode across all its platforms — the most ever for a freshman series on the cabler. It’s been renewed for a second season, though no premiere date has been announced.

NBC’s veteran sketch show, “SNL,” similarly enjoyed a ratings surge this season, fueled by the swirl of headlines from the election and the Trump Administration, and star turns from Alec Baldwin as Donald Trump and Melissa McCarthy as Sean Spicer. This past season ranked as its most-watched in 23 years.

Netflix’s freshman hit “Stranger Things,” meanwhile, landed 18 nominations.

Last year’s most-nommed show, “Game of Thrones,” isn’t eligible for the Emmys this year because of its mid-July premiere date.

Stephen Colbert, host of CBS’ “Late Show,” will host the Emmy Awards live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Sunday, Sept. 17 at 5 p.m. PT. The ceremony will air live on CBS.
