Between 9 and 10 p.m., in retrospect, would have been a good time to switch over from the Emmys and watch “Rome” on HBO. The thing is, for much of the hour, you were pretty much watching HBO, anyway. As usual, the network steamrolled the miniseries-and-movie categories with such expensive, plush Emmy-acquisition devices as “The Life and Death of Peter Sellers,” “Lackawanna Blues” and “Warm Springs.” S. Epatha Merkerson of “Lackawanna” even best ABC’s Halle Berry in the actress category, leaving us to wonder if Berry would give her customary five-hour acceptance speech for a mere Emmy.
