With "Friends" and "Frasier" out to pasture and "The Sopranos" temporarily out of circulation, this year's Emmy Awards will not be business as usual. Unless you are in the "Desperate Housewives" business. And then you'd better start clearing some shelf space now.

With newbies like "Desperate Housewives," "Lost," "House" and "Grey's Anatomy" grabbing big ratings and critical buzz, Thursday's Emmy nominations should be awash in fresh blood and Red Bull-ish energy. Not to mention a whole lot of estrogen.

But in their rush to embrace their newest pets, the members of the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences are likely to overlook some of the TV year's friskiest people and most indelible mome served to go, but viewers definitely deserve a second look at Daly.

BEST SACRIFICE FLY (AWAY): To long-suffering "Desperate Housewives" husband Rex Van De Kamp (Steven Culp), who survived a sex scandal, a delinquent son and the very-scary Bree, only to be slowly and unglamorously poisoned by his geeky pharmacist. Rex, we knew ye way too well, but we'll miss you and your bad habits anyway.
