  1. I think "30 Rock" should take home the award for best comedy TV series this year. "Modern Family" has won this award two years in a row, and I love to watch Ed O'Neil on this show. Steven Levitan is a great director for “Modern Family”, and I believe he should win the award in that category. I got my Hopper because I knew it would record both of these shows for me. I work for Dish and I can tell you that its PrimeTime Anytime feature will automatically record all my prime time shows that come on CBS, NBC, FOX and ABC everyday in HD. My Hopper can also hold up to 2,000 TV shows, and record up to six shows at once.
