Senator McCaskill Happy with Emmy Pick

At least one senator watched TV’s Emmy Awards on Fox Sunday night.

On Sunday evening, after the presentation, Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) congratulated Coach Taylor, a character played by actor Kyle Chandler on Texas football show “Friday Night Lights.”

McCaskill tweeted:

So glad that FNL getting recognition it deserves on Emmys. Happy for Coach T, I mean Kyle Chandler.

The five-season show was a hit with critics despite its low ratings. McCaskill likely expressed the sentiments of many avid fans disappointed that the show went five seasons without an Emmy outside of the technical categories.

The show also won an Emmy on Sunday night for Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series, which went to writer and Executive Producer Jason Katims.
