The article presents the views of ABC Entertainment president Steve McPherson on the Emmy awards in the U.S. in 2006. McPherson strongly criticized the voting system for the awards, citing the omission of "Lost" from the list of nominated television dramas and the absence of cast from "Desperate Housewives" in the list of nominated television actors. He attributed this development to the new voting system for the Emmy awards.
