The 69th Primetime Emmy Awards will be telecast live on CBS on Sunday, September 17. The program is set to make history: the best comedic actress award will likely go to the same actress for the sixth year in a row; for the first time in a decade a broadcast network show may win best drama; and an African American woman may for the first time win an award for best writing for a comedy series.
Some of the shows and actors up for awards this year are brand new to the Emmys. Others are veterans, having already won or been nominated many times over the years. To determine the TV shows with the most Emmy wins of all time, 24/7 Wall St. calculated the total Emmy award wins for all categories since 1949. Over seven decades, 35 shows have won at least 15 Emmy awards.
Of the 35 shows with at least 15 Emmy wins, 10 are still on the air. With 22 nominations this year, tied with “Westworld” as the most of any show this year, “Saturday Night Live” is likely to continue to add to its substantial collection of Emmy awards.
