lena-dunham-girls-emmys.jpgFacts and figures from the 2012 Primetime Emmy nominations, including an ongoing record for one long-running show and a rare double for a pair of female performers.

156: The number of Emmy nominations "Saturday Night Live" over its 37-year history, the most for any program at the Emmys (it earned 14 nods this year).

32: Emmy wins for "SNL" out of 142 nominations prior to 2012, for a winning percentage of .225.

50: Percentage of AMC's 34 total nominations this year that are for "Mad Men," which leads all nominees (along with FX's "American Horror Story") with 17.

3: Individual Emmy nominations for "Girls" creator Lena Dunham, who's up for outstanding lead actress in a comedy series and for writing and directing. For good measure, the show is also up for best comedy.

9: Consecutive years "The Daily Show" has won the Emmy for outstanding comedy/variety series. It's up for the award again this year.

7: Acting nominations for "Modern Family" ( Julie Bowen, Ty Burrell, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Ed O'Neill, Eric Stonestreet, Sofia Vergara and guest star Greg Kinnear), the most of any series this year.

0: Nominations for "The Office" and "House." For "The Office," it's the first shutout since the show's six-episode inaugural season in 2005, and it's the first time ever "House" has failed to score at least one nomination.
