At this Sunday's Emmy Awards, the AMC show "Mad Men" could make Emmy history if it wins in the Outstanding Drama category. No other show has won five consecutive Emmy awards in that category.

However, as Boston Globe TV critic Matthew Gilbert tells Here & Now's Robin Young, "I'm not sure the Emmy voters will want to pick 'Mad Men' as the one show that wins five Best Drama awards."

Gilbert thinks this could be the year for "Breaking Bad" though "Downton Abbey" could be a dark horse.

Gilbert also gives his picks for the new shows to watch this season. He's most excited about ABC's country music drama "Nashville."
