Am I a TV savant?

My faculty assistant and I were chatting about TV shows earlier, and she remarked that I was a TV savant. (We're both fans of "Justified," but it impressed her that I was able to explain the easter egg about Carla Gugino's guest turn as a subtle nod to her too-short-lived series "Karen Sisco.")

However, in looking at the 2015 Emmy nominations, I feel like anything but a TV savant. Despite my prodigious TV watching, I've seen very few of the shows that were nominated, and some of them I know nothing about. It was nice to see Tatiana Maslany get noticed (FINALLY) for her fantastic work as multiple clones in "Orphan Black," but I stopped watching that early in season 2 after I got rid of cable.
