Brooks is closely followed by Lorne Michaels, with 14 wins across an empire spanning SNL, Late Night With Conan O’Brien, Late Night With Jimmy Fallon (and the host's later Tonight Show incarnation), Portlandia and 30 Rock. Several other major producers have accumulated 10 Emmys, including David E. Kelley, Jerry Bruckheimer, and Steven Bochco.
