6.30pm Et: Can last year's Emmy's be topped? Now there's a phrase you don't hear about the Us TV industry's annual gong-a-thon very often. In fact, mostly never. But in 2010, after years of shambolic broadcasts, badly briefed presenters, over-runs and idiosyncratic awards choices, the organisers finally got it together.

In an article headlined "Were these the best Emmy's ever?" New York magazine described last year's event as the "least excruciating televised awards show since the 2009 Oscars". Which is quite something for New York magazine.

Keith Olbermann's sudden departure from MSNBC has created the biggest challenge of Rachel Maddow's broadcasting career-becoming the face of a cable network at an uncomfortable crossroads.

The woman at the whiteboard, in a brown hoodie, white T-shirt, and jeans, scribbles away as the debate careens from John Boehner to abortion rights to Silvio Berlusconi's teenage gal pal.

It is part graduate seminar, part standup comedy, as Rachel Maddow challenges the 17 mostly female staffers on every suggestion for that night's show. While Maddow strafes such favorite conservative targets as the billionaire Koch brothers ("They're doing a good job of marginalizing all criticism of them as hysterical"), her sharp tongue doesn't spare Democrats. She says  Hillary Clinton, during the Egyptian protests, "pulled a full Baghdad Bob: ‘Pay no attention to that burning barricade behind me.'"
