Hit comedy Ted Lasso put another one into the back of the net for Apple TV+. Or it put another 20 there, if you like. The show notched 20 Emmy nominations today, breaking the record for a first-year comedy that Glee set in 2010 with 19.

In the comedy series, Jason Sudeikis stars as Ted Lasso, an almost impossibly nice American football coach given the top coaching job at struggling English soccer club AFC Richmond. Sudeikis also serves as an executive producer on the upbeat show.

Award mania

As Cult of Mac mentioned recently, Ted Lasso already scored scads of other honors. And Apple TV+ just received 25 Daytime Emmy Award nominations. Frankly, it’s becoming a bit difficult to keep track of all the praise.

With Lasso‘s 20 nominations today, Apple TV+ racked up a total of 35 Emmy Awards nominations, not including the daytime ones. The two sets combined total 60 nominations.

The 73rd Emmy Awards, hosted by Cedric the Entertainer, will take place at the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles on September 19.
